Let me share with you, some of my favourite humans, brands and businesses
Biome sell everything from personal care items, to reusable cups to ‘slow fashion’ items. There are plenty of companies selling eco-friendly, low-toxin products, but Biome is one of my most trusted resources. Tracey Bailey, the founder and director, has very strict standards and is very transparent with the information she shares. You can also find lots of DIY ingredients here.
FLORA & FAUNA
These guys are 100% vegan, ethical and cruelty free which is so awesome. You can get everything from shampoo and conditioner, to baby and kids products, to make-up and skincare. They offer free delivery in AU for orders over $50, and international shipping from $10.
123 NOURISH ME
When time is an issue or DIY just isn’t your thing, it’s important to have reliable brands to rely on. I know Alisa and Dani personally, and I can assure you that they have the very best intentions when it comes to people and planet. Most of their products are certified organic, and I have tried most of their range; the sunscreen is lovely and smooth, the roll on deodorant works wonders, and the hand wash is gorgeous, to reference a few. Local Perth girls worth checking out.
WATERS CO AUSTRALIA
If I am leaving the house for longer than the day, I literally never leave without this bad boy in my handbag. It allows me to filter water on the go (very handy when I’m interstate and in hotel rooms!) and eliminates the need for plastic bottles. Waterman’s central cartridge contains alkaline minerals, magnets and activated carbon filter medium. It re-mineralises and ionises ordinary tap water while filtering out up to 99% of chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals, chemicals and bacteria. Each filter replaces around 500x 600ml bottles.
JUJU MENSTRUAL CUPS
I am so obsessed with my Juju cup, and all of the benefits of owning one, that I have devoted an entire blog post to it! You can read that here. Its ease of use, the number of disposable period-related items I have saved form landfill make it an absolute staple for me!
LOW TOX LIFE – ALEXX STUART
I may be known as the ‘Queen of DIY’, but Alexx is the ‘Queen of Low Tox – all areas’. This girl is kicking some serious goals in the wellness space and I HIGHLY recommend her book and her ‘Go Low Tox’ course. If you’re after recommendations on low tox mattresses, wall paint, clothing, kettles and cookware, etc. – Alexx is your chick.
NL sells over 7,000 products, and you’ll often find items on sale. From brands like Ethique and 100% Pure, to Modibodi and Grants, you can do most of your toxin-aware shopping in one place, and earn rewards at the same time – just be savvy and check that those labels meet your needs.
