Thinking of taking the first steps to become more environmentally friendly when it comes to shopping? We’ve got just the guide for you.
Below you’ll find five of our favourite sustainable yet affordable brands that are perfect for eco‑conscious shoppers.
Wild Natural Deodorant
Wild is the world’s first zero‑plastic deodorant refill, made from plants, packaged in plants, and can be composted down to feed new plants – wow!
It’s free from synthetic aluminium salts, which means its formula is 100% aluminium‑free. You can get the natural deodorant delivered straight to your door on a flexible subscription, and it even comes in sustainable packaging. No plastic in sight.
Oh, and did we mention it’s also vegan?!
You may have seen these laundry capsules popping up on your Instagram feed.

Since its launch in 2018, Smol customers have saved over 300 tonnes of plastic! Next time you use the laundry room, why not give Smol a go!
