Eco Friendly Products
It’s becoming more and more important to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Want to ensure you’re doing your part to help prevent any further damage to our planet?… Choose eco friendly products!
How to Choose them…
Take into account the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”
Firstly, the product itself and packaging should be manufactured in an environmentally friendly way.
Can the product be disposed of safely?
Can the packaging be reused?
Sticking to biodegradable, recycled, or reusable products and packaging will help you choose the most earth friendly products.
Think Long Term Use
Choosing products that will last you much longer will significantly cut down on how much waste ends up in landfills.
Reusable tote bags can be used in place of the disposal plastic type.
Using biodegradable or reusable coffee cups would help cut down on the 200 million single use coffee cups which are thrown away every year in Ireland.
One of the most prominent chemicals we are asked about is BPA . BPA is found in Polycarbonate plastics which are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. Polycarbonate plastics have been reported in the press in recent years as it is harmful to both the environment and people.
Swapping single use water bottles for BPA free for a reusable durable water bottle like our Elite Water Thermos is one simple step to making our planet greener!
