How to avoid plastic when you’re shopping cruelty-free

Plastic: it’s a problem. According to the UK government, 1 million birds, and over 100,000 other sea mammals and turtles die every year from either eating plastic or getting tangled in plastic waste.

With these shocking figures in mind, many of us are now looking for plastic-free options when we’re shopping cruelty-free.

Fortunately, quite a few of our endorsed brands are also completely plastic-free!

For soaps, body washes, shampoo bars and solid conditioners, look no further that Little Soap Company and Solidu.

Ethique also has a great range of these products, and a full range of facial skincare, too, including cleansers, moisturisers and exfoliators. Plus, Conscious Skincare have a gorgeous range of face and body products, including a men’s shaving range, that are all plastic-free.

We also recommend checking out White Rabbit Skincare, Nirvana Natural and Lucy Bee, as their ranges use minimal plastic.

To keep you smelling fresh and staying plastic-free, look no further than Earth Conscious. Their sustainable deodorants are available in bars, sticks or tins.

You might be thinking, “That’s all well and good, but what about cleaning my home?” Don’t worry – brands like Planet Detox have got you covered. All their products are cruelty-free, vegan, plastic-free and contain no chemicals that cause harm to the planet.

For your getting your clothes clean, companies like Smol and StripWash Laundry offer plastic-free options.

We can’t write about plastic-free cleaning brands without mentioning Fill Refill, which operate a closed-loop refill  system for their cleaning range. If you haven’t heard of a closed-loop system before, it essentially means that a product or material – in this case the packaging – can be used and then turned into a new product or reused indefinitely. You can find out more here.

And, of course, if the products you use right now aren’t plastic-free, make sure when they are used up to recycle the packaging correctly. Or, even better – reuse it for something else!
