Reusable Bamboo Coffee Cup I am special

Plastic Not Fantastic
Did you know that almost half of all coffees and hot drinks in the
UK alone are now sold in disposable cups? 2.5 billion coffee cups
are used and thrown away each year just in the UK - enough to
stretch around the world roughly five and a half times! Sadly, less
than 1 in 400 - just 0.25% - are recycled. This dishwasher safe
Bamboo Reusable Cup is the perfect vessel from which to drink
your favourite morning cuppa on the way to work. Eco-friendly,
sustainable and reusable, this cup is made from renewable
bamboo fibre including the lockable lid (unlike many ‘eco’ cups
which have silicone lids). It has an ample 500ml capacity with
sleeve for really hot drinks. Dishwasher safe, odour free and taste
neutral! What’s not to like?!
Available in three designs, “Time to be a Unicorn” “I am special”
(zebra) and “say yes to new adventures” (Mountain scene)  £14

This Fold-Away Pouch Shopping Bag is your new reusable

looks pretty stylish too. £4 each

It's A Wrap
The people and planet-friendly alternative to cling film and tin foil

100% natural Beeswax Wrap .

wrapping a whole large loaf of bread, keeping it naturally fresher
for longer. Made from GOTS certified organic cotton and low
impact dyes, organic jojoba oil, pine resin and local British
beeswax. Available in different sizes from £15

Your beautiful alternatives to an ugly reality.
