Here are a few of my favourite sustainable and eco-friendly products that I find really useful when trying to live a zero waste lifestyle.
It does contain Affiliate links which means if you do make a purchase, the price is exactly the same for you and I may receive a small commission. Thanks for your support, this helps to keep the site up and running.

Zero Waste Bathroom Products
A few basics to get you covered for a zero waste, plastic-free or more nature based routine. Simple changes can make a big impact and I think most of us were disturbed by the seahorse/cotton bud images floating around last year. Here are some of the items I use and highly recommend
Corrynne's Natural Eco Soap (Pam Oil Free)
(Read my post here for everything you need to know about making this switch)
Bi-Carb Free Deodorant Paste for Sensitive Skin
Sampler Set of my Favourite Shampoos Bars
Zero Waste living
You do NOT need all of these items, but I find these are common items people ask me about and, depending on your lifestyle, could become essentials.
Biodegradable Coconut Fibre Scrubpad
Eco Friendly Dish Brush (with replaceable parts)
Stainless Steel Drinking Straws + Cleaning Brush
Plastic Free Laundry Kit (great for starting out)
I love books, but rather than list the hundreds I read every year, I wanted to keep this list short and just include my absolute favourites. This list changes now and again as I discover more and learn more. I have also dedicated a post just to Eco-friendly, Zero waste & Sustainable themed books for Kids and Teens which you can find here.
I'm always on the look out for interesting books, so let me know your suggestions! I will eventually get around to writing some in depth review posts on these fabulous books to give you a good idea of what you can expect to find in them or how useful they will be to you.
The Art of Frugal Hedonism (My No.1 Favourite Book of all time!)
One Magic Square and One Magic Square Vegetable Gardening
The True Cost of Toys, The True Cost of Food and other books in this series
A Zero Waste Life in 30 Days (You can read my review on this book here.)
Some of My Favourite Online Stores
Yes, even though I AM trying to live a low waste life I do still like to shop online because it is incredibly convenient. I am choosy where I shop and below are the main ones I personally choose to support because they are zero waste focussed, ethically based and help me to live without waste.
I've popped them here because I get a lot of people asking me how they can help support my site. It's simple - if you are planning on purchasing something you need, click below to visit the online stores.
As an affiliate with these brands I earn a small commission (on average around 4%-8%) and this helps so much in supporting this site and keeping it up and running.
If you don't need something, don't buy it. Instead, send me a message, leave me a comment or head on over to social media. You don't need to spend money to show your support and help spread the word on being kinder to the planet.
