    Since lockdown began I’ve changed a lot of products I’ve used in my bathroom and kitchen. We’ve completely switched to Ecover for our washing up/laundry needs, but my hero products have been reusable cotton pads and natural deodorant. What about you all?

    I’ve changed habits more than products. I’ve stopped being so lazy and now walk into town instead of drive! Saves me a bunch on petrol. I’ve also learned some new 20 minute recipes, so when I’m tempted to order food I decide to cook instead – with the stuff I already have (which otherwise might be wasted).

    I’ve switched to more eco-friendly cleaning products, and only washing our clothes 1-2 week instead of consistent loads. I also read your grow your own article and started to build a little section of my garden to grow a couple of easy vegetables. Shame about garden centres and how much product they had to waste. But i wonder if i’ll be taking the same care once normal life returns

    what is ecover? and reusable cotton pads? and natural deodorant? are they good for sensitive skin? where can we buy them? are they expensive?

    I don’t think we have really changed anything. unless it said eco friendly on the item I wouldn’t know it was eco friendly. speaking of which can you explain what eco friendly means? I assume its something to do with being kind to the ecosystem?
