Everyday, eco-friendly life hacks that clever Mums use which take no effort!
At Keegan & Co. Botanicals we use only recyclable packaging combining aluminium and glass, both recyclable to infinity, with bamboo a natural and eco-friendly material. Where plastic is used this is only due to necessity and is always recyclable. However, we believe in reusing before recycling, Recycling uses energy to dismantle and re-manufacture products and although better than packaging ending up in landfill, reuse has so many more benefits than recycling.
Our gift boxes use printer’s offcuts as shredded filler. This paper is usually discarded so instead of purchasing filler was a bit silly so why not use what’s already there?
All of our bottles and jars are 100ml or less making them travel friendly. When your bottle or jar is empty, clean it, remove the labels and reuse them as travel bottles.
Our bamboo and glass jars and our aluminium tins were chosen not just for their eco-friendliness but because they look great! When empty, wash them and remove labels. The empty jars can be reused too.
