Day 1 – What is Zero Waste Week?
Founded in 2008, Zero Waste Week (2nd – 6th September) helps individuals, businesses, schools, community groups and universities to make small changes to reduce landfill waste, save money and ultimately preserve resources.
Day 2 – Where does ecoegg come in?
Well, our ecoegg Laundry Egg is the perfect way to start reducing your waste. It will help reduce your plastic and cardboard
consumption versus traditional laundry detergents and fabric conditioner. Plus, with no harsh chemicals, it will also reduce the chemical
waste leaving your household. There’s plenty of other benefits too including being kind to your skin and your pocket too. Take a look here.
Day 3 – Saving Money!
By adopting a zero waste lifestyle where you can, you will also save money. Many people have a perception that being environmentally friendly is more expensive but, that is not true. There maybe a few upfront costs that you could take on over time but once your in the swing of it, it will most certainly be a much more cost effective way of life!
Just like our ecoegg Laundry Egg….
“It’s also really economical. When you do some of the sums it works out as really good value per wash, and that’s important to me too. Its all very well being eco friendly and free of any harsh chemicals but if its going to cost a fortune then that’s not so appealing, but the Laundry Egg ticks that box for affordability as well. It just makes sense for me.” Emma Ross, Mum of three and blogger (@mamalinauk)
Having a refillable water bottle = saves on buying bottled water and other drinks.
