Today it is more crucial than ever to make changes to help our environment. Every day we hear about another turtle who has died with a litre of plastic in its stomach or see an image of a hungry polar bear starving in the melting ice caps.

The Homeware industry in previous years has been one of the greatest producers of single use plastics. This has posed serious environmental issues such as increasing CO2 emissions and polluting our oceans, so several companies are trying to tackle this issue and have made huge efforts to create more sustainable products.

Waikiki Bottle 

First up we have the Waikiki Bottle. This eco-friendly stainless-steel insulated bottle is designed to keep you hydrated whilst encouraging a more sustainable lifestyle. As well as helping the environment by reducing the number of plastic bottles purchased, Waikiki has also launched the Take-back Program. This allows customers to return their used bottles once they are done with them to be recycled at its source. Those who return the bottles receive a discount on future purchases as a thank you for keeping your bottle from the landfill.

Eco-Strawz Reusable Metal Straws 

Another small change that can aid our environment is the removal of single use plastics such as straws. These stainless-steel drinking straws made by Eco-Strawz can be cleaned and reused multiple times, saving space in our landfills from the regular use of plastic straws, which take years to decompose. What is more, with every reusable straw purchased, Eco-Strawz will donate 1p to Sea Shepherd, a world leading direct action ocean conservation charity.
