As you know, here at the honu HQ we do everything we can to be as sustainable as possible, that is why all our packaging is 100% plastic free, even down to the tape we use to secure our postal boxes. Our boxes and envelopes are small and light enough to fit through your letterbox, which in turn helps to minimise carbon footprint during delivery and where possible, our pieces are made with 50% recycled sterling silver. But what we also do is try our best to be sustainable in our day to day lives, so we thought we would share with you some of our favourite sustainable brands each month!
So here are February's picks...
1. Truthbrush - Toothbrushes are such a daily routine staple, but did you know that plastic tooth brushes are such a huge part of the waste problem. Truthbrush is the beautiful solution that will blend elegantly into your bathroom. Crafted from sustainable, organic bamboo, which is naturally antibacterial, the eco-friendly Truthbrush is biodegradable, great for your gnashers and easy on your earth. Check them out here.
2. Bam Clothing - The perfect place for waste free clothing for both men & women. Their bamboo clothing is super soft, durable, breathable and kind to sensitive skin. It's not just your body that will be happy when you shop Bam’s selection of tops, bottoms, underwear and activewear. Bamboo is amazing for the earth too. It is 100% biodegradable, grows fast and naturally, and requires less water than wood. Why not give them a visit here.
3. The Wheat Straws Company - We do our best here to avoid straws, but have you ever tried drinking a Mojito without a straw?! So here is an alternative that we love... Did you know that straws are called ‘straws’, because they were once made from STRAW? This brand asked: why not go back to the way things were? These beautiful drinking companions are 100% compostable, 100% biodegradable, 100% natural and gluten free. They are a natural by-product of the wheat harvest, so they all have their own perfectly imperfect character. They stay hard for hours, so you can take your time over your G&T without a soggy paper straw situation.
Get yours here.
