7 easy and impactful swaps for a more sustainable lifestyle

7 easy and impactful swaps for a more sustainable lifestyle

Are you looking for some sustainable swaps that will make a real impact on the planet? Look no further! We've got seven suggestions that are easy to implement and will help you reduce your environmental impact.

1. Chuck out wet wipes.

Wet wipes may seem convenient, but they're terrible for the environment. They can take years to break down, and they often contain harmful chemicals that can harm wildlife and ecosystems.

Wet wipes are the fastest-growing cause of pollution in our oceans, with up to 90% of them containing plastic. By using an eco-friendly alternative like Luna Daily's Everywhere Mist, you can help to reduce the amount of plastic waste in our oceans. Luna Daily's Everywhere Mist has been expertly crafted as a Spray to Wipe formulation. Simply spray the mist onto any tissue or toilet paper and it turns into an eco-friendly wet wipe alternative that's pH balancing, safe for intimate skin and moisturising. 

2. Stick with reusables

In the UK alone, 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used every year, and most of them end up in landfills or oceans. Making the switch to reusable period products like period pants, period cups or reusable pads can significantly reduce this waste and help you save on your monthly cycle care spend in the long run!

3. Ditch the (disposable) applicator.

Every year, 6.5 million tampon applicators are thrown away in the UK alone. Enter DAME's reusable applicator, affectionally called D. This clever device can be used with any brand of tampon, but we'd suggest using organic cotton non-applicator tampons for extra eco-impact. 

Made from medical grade Mediprene© and Sanipolymers©, D uses self-sanitising technology for clean and easy use, making it not only safe and hygienic but a convenient alternative to single-use applicators. D is designed for life, cycle after cycle.

By switching to a reusable applicator like DAME's, you can significantly reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills.

    4. Let your armpits get Wild.

    Many conventional deodorants contain harmful chemicals that can irritate your skin and harm the planet. Wild's refillable natural deodorant is a great alternative. It's made from natural ingredients, and it comes in a refillable container that reduces waste. Plus, it actually works to keep you feeling fresh and clean all day long.

    5. Period Swimwear

    Period pants are great, but you can't wear them when you swim.... or can you? WUKA has designed an absolutely gamechanger for your sustainable summer cycle - period swimwear. These swimsuits are designed to absorb menstrual flow, so you can enjoy the water without worrying about leaks or discomfort. 

    6. Sustainability is sexy, switch out your regular condoms for these planet-positive alternatives. 

    Brands like HANX and Roam offer condoms that are made from natural rubber latex and are biodegradable. These condoms are just as effective as traditional condoms but are better for the environment. Plus, they come in recyclable packaging, so you can reduce waste even further. So, make the switch to biodegradable condoms and do your part in protecting the planet, while also taking care of your sexual health.

    7. Don't let something you pee on once last a lifetime. 

    If you're trying to conceive or suspect you may be pregnant, you may also be interested in an eco-friendly pregnancy test. Traditional pregnancy tests can be wasteful and end up in landfills, but Hoopsy offers a more sustainable option. Their pregnancy test is made from biodegradable materials and has 99% accuracy, just like traditional tests. Plus, the packaging is made from recycled materials, so you can reduce waste even further. By choosing an eco-friendly pregnancy test like Hoopsy's, you can reduce your impact on the planet and make a more sustainable choice for your pregnancy journey.

    So there you have it: seven sustainable swaps that will make a real impact on the planet. Give them a try and see how easy it can be to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Your body (and the planet) will thank you!
