Hahaha love your videos, thanks πŸ™‚

Hi Carmen, useful video ! For a few month, I use glass bottle rather than pastic ones.
Did you try glass tupperware ? Plastic is really not good for health, a "few" of plastic goes into food and in our body. I have plastic tupperware but wondered if you knew good glass tupperware. How coincidence, I just ordered yesterday a big bag (10 Kg) of dry cat food for my cat, instead of bag of 3 Kg. Should received it end of next week. I'll see if it's practical and take not to much place, but I thought it does use less plastic and it's cheaper.
You made me lough with your "menstrual cup of tea" and vampire thing at the end^^.
Have a nice week πŸ™‚

Freya Davies says:

Can you recommend any eco-friendly toilet roll brands?

Helena Egbert says:

Definitely switching to reusable facepads – I hadn't considered the impact of all of the pesticides etc. in the disposable cotton pads I use here and there. Also going to look into bamboo toothbrush too!

E B says:

I have reusable pads, make up remover pads, dish cloth, face cloths, etc. This saves you so much money! Especially menstrual pads! + they're more comfortable and feel more clean than disposable ones.

E E says:

I’m glad to see you use your already existing reusable plastic container. I don’t think throwing out old Tupperware and buying all new metal or glass ecoware is necessary and isn’t particularly helpful.

Jen Wells says:

Love love love my menstrual cup! I also love the fact that you are real life about everything – your cotton pads aren’t new and shiny because you use them everyday, and you are so honest β€œit’s not perfect, but it’s better” – thank you for not pretending to be someone you aren’t ☺️

Emma Joanna says:

What are your thoughts on shampoo bars, for example from the Lush? I've been using them for a while and quite excited about them because you just buy a piece without packaging, it is cruelty free and most of the ingredients are natural (not all of them though). Besides they keep a close eye on the production process and see to it that most ingredients are produced as local or near by as possible

Ellis Scott says:

I've been wondering for a while if there were reusable versions of cotton wool pads because I use them a lot too and I didn't research it for some reason. I think I just kept forgetting so thanks for reminding me! I might go and buy some

Lizzy N-J says:

I bought the make-up removal pads after watching one of your other videos. I would definitely recommend them! Soo much better than using wipes like I used to, and I'm not using a whole big flannel just to take off eyeliner. xx

When I first saw the word swaps I thought you did like a swap as in: sending a gift to someone and getting something return lol. Love how you sum up this list. Just filmed a video tonight about sustainable / minimalist Christmas gift and the cotton pads are also on my list. Maybe another tip for you: do you know the eco razors? There are amazing! It saves you so much on money and plastic ones..
