Plastic free July

July was Plastic Free month here in the UK (it might also have been elsewhere, now that I come to think of it…). I tried to reduce plastic consumption, to reuse things when I could and to find new ways of doing things…

I decided to crochet bags and scubbies to avoid using plastic bags in the shops and cotton wool (not plastic, I know, but not reusable…).

The cotton pads are super soft and very easy to care for (you can put them in trouser’s pockets, a pillow case or wash bag to avoid loosing them in the washing machine – sometimes I find them stuck under the door). I like the feel of it and they do just the job. And they add colour in the bathroom! I keep them in a little pottery mug on the counter, and wash them with the day load. They dry in no time too!

I was a bit carried away and crocheted so much in lovely pretty colours I decided to make them available in my Etsy shop 😉

This bag is so great! It takes no space at all in a handbag, is pretty sturdy and can hold a lot of fruit and veg from the organic shop!

Are you trying to reduce your plastic consumption? What are your favourite finds? I’d love to hear from you!
