Wherever possible, we offer alternatives to plastic and other goods that are harmful to the environment.
Hairy Ballz are 100% New Zealand wool balls. Put a pair in your washing machine - as water from your laundry passes through them they catch the tiny particles of synthetic fibre that have been released from your clothing. They can also be used in the tumble dryer as the water captured speeds the drying process.
The ballz will keep working on reducing ocean pollution for approximately 100 washes - when they need to be changed they can be put out with your clothes recycling or taken to a local textile recycling point.
ToothTabs are an alternative to toothpaste. Just pop one in your mouth and chew until it feels smooth, then brush your teeth (ideally with a softer brush).
Free of preservatives and contain neither aluminium nor nanoparticles. Available with fluoride, or fluoride-free, and also available as refills.
Many of the items shown the gifts page on are also eco-friendly, so have a look there, and also at our 'bring-me-back' bags, made by the community for the community.
If you have any additional suggestions for eco-friendly goods, please let us know!
