10 Simple Ways to Use Less Plastic!

Simple ways to use less plastic

It’s no secret that Australia has a problem with plastic. In particular, the unnecessary amount of single-use plastic that we use and discard throughout our everyday lives – from water bottles to coffee cups, straws and much more.

We’re huge advocates for being mindful of single-use plastic, and looking for reusable and sustainable alternatives where possible. Not only are there some great eco-friendly products now available, but there are also some simple lifestyle changes that can help you and your household cut down on plastic, too.

Keep reading for 10 ways you and your family can use less plastic around the home by making the switch to sustainable products instead.

Say no to plastic straws

Plastic straws are not only extremely harmful to our waterways and environment – but they’re actually just unnecessary in the first place! With so many alternative straw options now available such as bamboo and stainless steel, say no to plastic by opting for a reusable solution instead.

Use an eco-friendly coffee cup

Just like straws, standard takeaway coffee cups are only used once before being discarded, often including a plastic lining that prevents them from being recycled. Invest in an eco-friendly travel cup instead for your everyday brew, and take advantage of the discounts now offered by many cafes for BYO cups!

Reusable shopping bags

With the recent ban on supermarket plastic bags, investing in some good quality reusable shopping bags is now a must. Try to opt for reusable bags when it comes to produce like fruit and veg too – mesh, muslin and cotton produce bags are all great options.

Make your own cleaning products

Making your own DIY cleaning products not only reduces the amount of plastic containers coming in and out of your house, but also helps to reduce harmful toxins, too! There are some great DIY cleaning alternatives you can take advantage of using only natural ingredients – check out some of our favourite remedies on the blog.

Stop buying bottled water

Buying bottled water on the go is an easy habit to break by simply purchasing a reusable, BPA-free drink bottle instead. Get into the routine of filling your drink bottle each morning and taking it with you on the go. Only drink filtered water? Consider a water filtration unit for your kitchen to make pure chemical-free water accessible from home.

Bulk buy food in reusable containers

BYO reusable containers or lunch boxes where possible for bulk-buying cereals, nuts, legumes and other products available for self-serve at supermarkets and organic stores, instead of using plastic bags.

Use beeswax wraps

Cling wrap is another example of single-use plastic that can easily be avoided with eco-friendly alternatives. Beeswax wraps are another sustainable option that can be reused time and time again!

Reusable coffee pods

Did you know over 1 billion coffee pods are added to landfill each year? Luckily, reusable coffee pods are now growing in popularity and are a great way to cut down on plastic while still enjoying your morning cuppa.

Buy boxes instead of bottles

Be mindful of packaging when shopping, and opt for recyclable cardboard boxes and containers over plastic bottles and wraps where you can. You’d be surprised how many everyday items can be purchased in eco-friendly packaging as opposed to plastic when you keep an eye out for them!

Recycle

And finally, get your family into the habit of recycling properly – a printable graphic or list of do’s and don’ts in your kitchen can be a helpful reminder of what can and can’t be recycled.

We have a huge range of eco-friendly plastic alternatives here at Inspire Me Naturally – from bathroom products to kitchen products and much more. Plus, we’re committed to using eco-friendly packaging for all product purchases made online (with AfterPay and ZipPay available!).

5 Ways to Reduce Toxins in Your Home!

5 ways to reduce toxins at home

Our bodies are constantly exposed to different toxins throughout our everyday lives, from our surrounding environment to the food we eat and the air we breathe.

It’s so important to be mindful of preventing these toxins where possible – particularly in our homes, where we spend the majority of our time.

If you’re interested in learning more about reducing the amount of toxins throughout your home, we’re here to help. Keep reading for 5 of the best ways to reduce toxins in your household and detox your home by making just a few simple switches and turning to natural, chemical-free ingredients instead!

Go natural with household cleaners

Many of the popular household cleaners available on supermarket shelves are jam-packed with chemicals, with some of them being hazardous to our health. The last thing you want to do is breathe in nasty chemicals each time you clean around the home.

Instead, go natural by creating your own toxin-free household cleaners! Natural ingredients like baking soda, vinegar and essential oils can all be used for chemical-free cleaning, from benchtops to bathrooms and glass windows. Our range of On Guard cleaning products are also pre-made for natural, toxin-free cleaning. You can check out our favourite household cleaning remedies here, or view our range of On Guard products online.

Drink filtered water

Did you know that unfiltered water can actually contain harmful contaminants like chlorine, pesticides, fluoride compounds and even traces of assorted hormones and prescription drugs?

The best way to reduce toxins in your water consumption is to opt for a water filtration unit to remove any hidden chemicals. A water filtration unit in your home will ensure the water you’re drinking is 100% pure and chemical-free. Plus, you can also save money in the long run without having to buy bottled filtered water on the go – simply refill your reusable drink bottle to enjoy filtered water from home.

Make the switch to natural beauty products

When it comes to everyday beauty and wellness products like moisturiser, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and even toothpaste, it’s important to be mindful of any chemicals we might be rubbing in to our skin, hair and teeth.

Most mainstream wellness and beauty products can actually be replicated using DIY alternatives, such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, baking soda, Himalayan salt and essential oils. You can also purchase ready-made natural products like charcoal toothpaste, Himalayan salt soaks and more.

Ditch the pesticides

If you grow your own fruit, veg and herbs at home, step away from the pesticides! Did you know you can create your own pesticides to ward off insects using essential oils, rather than opting for chemical-filled products?

For example, peppermint, orange and cedarwood are known to repel ants, while lavender, lemongrass and rosemary can help with flies. For a good all-purpose spray, mix 10 drops each of rosemary, peppermint, thyme, lavender and clove in a spray bottle filled with water and shake well before use!

Reduce unnecessary plastic use

Some plastic products like water bottles, bags and lunchboxes can unfortunately contain BPA – a chemical used in the lining of certain plastic packaging.

Try to reduce unnecessary plastic use where possible by opting for alternatives like bamboo straws, beeswax wraps and reusable shopping bags that you can use again and again, or opt for BPA-free products like stainless steel lunchboxes.

You can shop our range of healthy kitchen, healthy bathroom and healthy home products online at Inspire Me Naturally with AfterPay available on all purchases – we’re committed to providing natural products for toxin-free living.
