Sustainable and Plastic-Free Ideas for the Home

Sustainable and Plastic-Free Ideas for the Home

People worldwide are taking up the challenge to go plastic-free over July.

The initiative to reduce plastic use was set up back in July 2011 to act as inspiration and motivation for finding more sustainable and environmentally friendly materials.

Since then, it has become an annual clarion call to tackle plastic waste and pollution. Millions of people take part each year, and here at Homecolours, we feel it’s a valuable time to discover new environmentally friendly products.

The following products all have sustainability and an environmental focus at their core. Read on to find a host of plastic-free and plastic-smart homeware items.

Making good use of reusable products is a key area where plastic can be reduced. The above w&p Porter Reusable Silicone Bag is a lovely example of how convenient and stylish these options can be.
The eco-friendly storage solution is available in various colours and is made using high-quality silicone. The secure and easy-to-open seal ensures all contents are safe and sound. It is also simple to see what is kept within.

An excellent alternative to throw-away plastic bags, the container is just the thing for cosmetics, sweets, snacks and study equipment.

Rather than relying on regular drinks bottles and cans to stay hydrated, why not invest in a reusable option?

The above w&p Porter Water Bottle provides a food-safe BPA-free glass receptacle with silicone wrapping and a secure lid for convenient drinking on the go. Strong enough to withstand years of regular use, the bottle can hold just under 600ml of liquids.

Another great reusable option from Koziol comes in the shape of the Eggs to Go Box. The practical and stylish item is ideal for transporting eggs from the shop to home. Taking away the need for wasteful packaging, the item safely coordinates the shopping trip from supermarket to fridge.
Available in a wide range of colours, the useful item can take 10 eggs at a time.

Reusable plastic is put to excellent use in the production of the above Koziol Swing-Top Wastebasket. Ideal for a utility room or workspace, the versatile bin provides a good-looking way to keep it tidy.
Designed with sleek, clean lines and available in a variety of colours, the softly curved basket is just the thing for attractive practicality. Made with 100% recycled plastic and cellulose, it is another brilliant option for showing a commitment to reducing single-use plastics.
