This months focus is one for all those little humans in our lives. Whether they are your own children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews or a friends child, you will be able to learn a lot about children’s products and how to make more eco-conscious choices as well as educate children as they are growing up. This first blog post is all about price comparisons and some lovely inspirational quotes. Enjoy. The first price comparison this month is on something that I have already spent so much time looking in to because we used cloth nappies, and still use cloth wipes, on our girls. The prices will vary massively from brand to brand, and yes, if you go all out crazy on the reusable nappies, you may end up spending a lot more than necessary. But hopefully, these figures will give you some guidance and show you that, eco really can…

Prepping this price comparison was a bit of an eye opener to be honest. It’s about 2.5 years since I bought any cleaning products from a supermarket and I didn’t realise how cheap they were. If you were to look solely at price for these products I could understand why someone would think that sticking with the ‘regular’ products over the eco ones was better for them. But I will still argue the point: All of the eco products I compared will last almost twice as long as the non-eco counterparts. Some may last 3-4 times longer (the washing up brushes/scrapers etc). This would mean then that comparatively, there isn’t a great difference in price. If you were to buy the non-eco products in these comparisons, guestimating that they last one month each, you will have 7-8 pieces of plastic EACH MONTH, just from washing up! Let’s take a look…

We’ve had a month full of amazing facts, beautiful products and inspirational quotes but, there is one thing that I know people often question when switching to an eco-alternative – how much is it going to cost? And it’s a big thing! I remember when I first started out that I spent a long time worrying about how much switches were going to cost me, but actually, I have always been pleasantly surprised. So here are some simple comparisons for you: Face Wipes 1 disposable wipe per day = £42/year for branded luxury, £14.50 own brand basics. Over 3 years = £43-126. 1 reusable per day = £8-14 per year. Over 3 years = £8-14 Soap Bars/Shower Gel 6 bottles per year = £12.90 for branded luxury £11 for own brand basics. Soap Bars 4 per year = £10 Cleanser Foaming cleanser bottle 3 per year = up to £50…
