Plastic Free July has arrived! H!P began on the basis of creating great-tasting chocolate that doesn't cost the environment, and we're committed to being 100% plastic-free. All our outer packaging is designed using recyclable cardboard and our inner films are made from wood pulp, which can be popped into your compost bin at home.
Plastic Free July is an amazing way to contribute towards a future that's free from plastic waste - every little swap can make a big difference! We want to prove that buying plastic-free products shouldn't be difficult for conscious consumers, so we've compiled a little list of our top swaps that you won't even notice you're making. Join us in the fight against single use plastics!
Our Five Top Swaps:
1. Swap out your plastic bathroom products. Ditch the disposable razors and the plastic shower gels and shampoo bottles for a more sustainable self-care routine. H!P recommends Estrid, who make razors from durable sustainable steel designed to last and Nuddy's incredible soap and shampoo bars.
2. Invest in some top quality reusable water bottles and coffee cups, and carry them everywhere with you. No more plastic bottles or disposable cups - get yourself a pretty water bottle and became as emotionally attached to it as possible. Check out Ocean Bottles.
3. Stop using cling film and start using reusable beeswax wraps instead. They're completely plastic-free, keep your food fresh for longer AND they're far more aesthetically pleasing anyway. We recommend the Beeswax Wrap Co.
4. Make your tea plastic free. You might be surprised to discover that your classic cuppa contains polypropylene, a non-recyclable, non-biodegradable plastic. There are loads of tea brands who are now plastic-free - including Clipper, Teapigs and Pukka - but plenty who aren't. It's always worth checking the back of the pack!
5. Avoid food wrapped in non-recyclable plastic. Do you really need your bananas in a plastic covering? Unless you're eating the unwashed peel too, which we would totally back, the extra plastic can go amiss.
