Eco Friendly Shopping Haul!

DSC_0124 DSC_0128 DSC_0129 DSC_0135 DSC_0137Wow. I have been buying a few things recently.

So I found this amazing website http://www.biggreensmile.com/  a little while ago whilst looking for the Hurraw raw vegan lip balms in the UK. I love this website! They offer free shipping which is always a bonus, and the packaging they use is all very eco friendly – my order arrived in a 100% recycled cardboard box and they had cleverly used shredded used cardboard as packing instead of plastic air filled pouches or those nasty polystyrene shapes – take note Amazon!! So I was already impressed before I even got to my goodies! If you spend over £10 on the website you are able to choose two free samples of products to try. I have always wanted to try the Dr. Bronner’s organic castile soap as I have heard so much hype about them so I chose them in two different fragrances. I have also used up both of the hurraw lip balms that I ordered last time – I don’t think I have ever finished a lip balm in my entire life, I absolutely love Hurraw 😀

From Big Green Smile I ordered;

  • Hurraw Lip Balm Tinted Black Cherry
  • Hurraw Lip Balm Grapefruit
  • Lilly’s Eco Clean Concentrated floor cleaner orange oil scent
  • Free sample Dr. Bronner’s Rose Castile Soap
  • Free sample Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Soap

I absolutely love the Hurraw’s – did I tell you already?! I would recommend them to everybody. I shall do reviews of the other things once I try and test them and let you know the verdict.

There is one more thing in my eco haul that I must rave about. For the longest time I have been lusting over the beautiful ceramic knives that everybody seems to have. However they are a bit pricey… usually. So when I popped into TK Maxx yesterday I was surprised and delighted to find this pink beauty for only £9.99. An absolute bargain and oh my. She slices through fruits and vegetables as if they were butter (or vegan margarine). I love my ceramic knife, I shall be very careful when using it! Oh and never use a ceramic knife on a stone chopping board – only wood or plastic I just used mine for photograph purposes only.

Have an amazing day 😀

Olivia.
