Give up plastic-ridden
make-up wipes in favour of a flannel or biodegradable ones such as The Body Shop Vitamin E-Facial Cleansing Wipes, £7.
Instead of toilet wipes
squeeze a little eco-friendly Freshu Toilet Tissue Gel on toilet paper (Gel available in most supermarkets).
Change your disposable
razor when blunt for one that allows you to replace the head. Buy cotton buds with a 100 per cent biodegradable stick instead of a plastic one
Switch from plastic
toothbrushes to bamboo ones with nylon bristles (available from Holland and Barrett and Georganics www.georganics.co.uk) Although you might have heard about the recent ban on microbeads,this only applies to rinse-off products such as face and body washes, not leave-on products (deodorants, sun screen etc) which still end up in our water supply when we wash. Check ingredients and steer clear of any of the following: Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)
