The cost-of-living crisis is biting hard and we understand that many of our customers are worried about their household bills – and we want to help you with our money saving tips. A common myth about eco-friendly products is that they are more expensive but more often than not, you’ll find that they actually save you money. Our top 5 money saving products are good for the environment and your wallet.

ecoegg Laundry Egg 

ecoeggs are wonderful little (you guessed it!) eco-friendly and money-saving eggs. The fresh linen laundry egg completely replaces traditional laundry detergent and fabric softener. Using natural mineral pellets, they draw the dirt out of your clothes and soften them by changing the pH, without using harsh chemicals, palm oil, parabens, enzymes, phosphates, microplastics, SLS or SLES.

Using only natural ingredients, it’s a simple eco-friendly way to wash your clothes. It’s also hypoallergenic and has been dermatologically tested on sensitive skin.

The award-winning ecoegg can be reused up to 70 times. After 70 washes, you can keep the egg container, all you need to buy is the refill pellets. With a 10-year guarantee, it will massively decrease your single-use plastic consumption – saving your home up to 40 bottles of detergent and fabric softener per year. At the end of its long life, it can be recycled.

Plus, it means fewer carbon emissions as it requires less energy to transport across the country compared to plastic bottles. The packaging is also FSC certified, fully recyclable and uses vegetable-based inks.

But we love this product because as well as saving you carbon emissions and being good for the environment, it saves you money! Using an ecoegg, the cost per wash will be drastically reduced to 14p per wash and only 10p using the refill pellets. In comparison, traditional detergents cost roughly 15p per wash.

Non Plastic Beach Bamboo Safety Razor Kit

Are traditional plastic razors in your shopping basket every week? It’s time for a change! The Non Plastic Beach razors are made from bamboo and metal which will last for decades in comparison to single-use disposable razors.

The plastic savings are huge when you swap to this kit. The kit comes in fully recyclable packaging, even the replacement blades come in little packaging, with no plastic holder, packet or film to dispose of. The blades themselves can be recycled but you must check your local guidelines to find out how.

Many professionals opt for single-blade razors because they are more effective at providing a close, clean shave. Because of this, you will have to shave less. If you take care of your razor by keeping it clean and dry between uses, it will prolong its life even longer.

If you buy a pack of four single-use plastic razors every two weeks, on average that will cost you £100 per year! A pack of five Non Plastic Beach Bamboo razors cost £18.50 so that is a yearly saving of £81 – which you could put towards a date night out or a holiday instead.

Huski Home Sustainable Rice Husk Travel Cup

For the folks that can’t function without a hot drink in the morning, a sustainable travel cup is a great idea. The Huski Sustainable Travel Cup is made from recycled rice husk that would otherwise be destined to be burned – an environmental travesty.

Huski sustainable travel cups are durable, non-toxic and biodegradable alternatives to single-use coffee cups. It has twin walls which are perfect for keeping hot and cold drinks at the perfect temperature. The hinged splashproof and leakproof top means your drink won’t spill when you’re on the go or driving around.

Single-use coffee cups are an eco disaster! 2.5 billion paper coffee cups end up in landfill in the UK every year, emitting 152,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. Although some disposable coffee cups are biodegradable, when they are piled up in landfill they do not receive the resources to break them down naturally so it takes many, many years. Disposable plastic cups are even worse because they never break down completely – they shed microplastics for hundreds of years.

Choosing a reusable coffee cup eliminates waste and it can even save you money. Making your own coffee each morning is quicker and cheaper than standing in line for a takeaway coffee. Although, some coffee shops offer discounts when you use a reusable coffee cup. For example, Starbucks and Costa give you 25p off and Pret a Manger double this with 50p off. If you often buy takeaway coffees, this adds up quickly!
