By now I am hoping that most people living on this beautiful planet are aware of the need to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Over the last couple of years my own family have become eco warriors and are now experts at recycling or reusing our household waste. This year we are stepping it up even further and trying to apply the green ethos to other areas of our life. For my part, I am putting my health and beauty routine under the ‘green microscope’ and trying to see where I can make small sustainable changes for good.
Disclosure/ AD/ This post was written in collaboration with TePe.
Are you making sustainable changes to your health and beauty routine?
Did you know that Brits spend an average of £300 per year on health and beauty products, but almost two thirds (62%) don’t purchase sustainable options, believing them to be too expensive? Even worse in my opinion, 21% of us leave the water running when we clean our teeth and nearly a quarter (22%) still use beauty products that have a harmful impact on the environment!
For this post I have partnered with TePe an oral health brand I have enormous respect for as it has recently introduced TePe GOOD, a new sustainable toothbrush and overall sustainability initiative that aims to make a difference for the good of the planet.
Everyday steps we can take to reduce our environmental footprint.
Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth!
Or take a shower instead of a bath. These simple steps will not only reduce your water wastage but could also save you a lot of money on your water bill.
Swap your plastic toothbrush for a sustainable one.
We are all now using the new TePe GOOD toothbrush. Developed in collaboration with dental experts, the TePe GOOD toothbrush is the UK’s first sustainable, bio-based toothbrush, made from sugarcane and castor oil and produced in Sweden using 100% green energy. This is brilliant news for our planet because it enables TePe to recirculate up to 95% of the CO2 emissions during the toothbrush’s lifecycle, without compromising on quality, design or hygiene.
Invest in multi-purpose products
I now invest in multi-purpose makeup products. I have chunky eye crayons that double up as blushers and I always use a moisturiser that has a SPF in it therefore, doubling up as a facial sun cream! Multi use products mean less waste and work out to be more cost effective. Win win!
Reduce your use of electrical appliances.
Small electrical appliances such as hair tongs, straighteners and electric toothbrushes, can use a lot of energy. Less use = lower electricity bill. We have just booked to have a smart meter fitted, I am hoping it will make us all aware of how much we use daily.
What my family thought about the Tepe GOOD toothbrush.
My thoughts: I like the colour, it’s lightweight, has a comfortable handle and great brush shape for ease of brushing. It works and is helping to save the planet. Perfect!
The teenager thinks: It’s cool and is fascinated by the sugarcane content.
The other half: has been happily using it without complaint. Believe me, if he didn’t approve, I would know all about it!
Available from Waitrose and other leading supermarkets. RRP a reasonable £2.75 . Will you give it a try?
