10 Little Things Everyone can do to Reduce your Footprint!

Do you ever get caught-up and overwhelmed by the big black hole of information on the web regarding the impact that we are having on the earth?

We completely understand you can feel helpless and not know where to start! So…we cut through the BS and have broken down 10 little things that everyone can do in their everyday lives to reduce their environmental footprint (If it seems too much, tackle one at a time and work your way through!)

1. Shop at your local grower’s markets and bring your own bag! Say no to pre-packaged food wherever possible.

2. Bring your own coffee cup – In Australia we use one billion coffee cups a year – That’s enough coffee cups to wrap around the world twice! There are so many funky re-usable coffee cups out there…there’s no excuse not to! Go the extra step and wash each time in our Eco Friendly Dishwashing Liquid.

3. Use Eco-Friendly Cleaning & Personal Care products – Not only are our products environmentally, family, and pet friendly – but they are also SUPER economical! Try using our Cleaning Concentrates to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles. Our Supre Multi Purpose Cleaner Concentrate will make you up to 20 x 500ml spray bottles!!!
