Zero Plastic Waste Ideas

Coconut and Cotton in Shaftsbury has just extended their shop and you can also buy online. I called in last week and found bamboo handled interdental brushes, a bamboo pot scourer, natural fibre dental floss in a GLASS and metal container; deodorant in a glass jar; bamboo sporks; a cotton reusable bag with a durable waterproof liner (yes I know – plastic I expect but NOT single use, so my sandwiches will stay fresh and I won’t have used a disposable plastic bag); a cotton washing up pad and 3 pantyliners made from organic cotton, which are expected to replace at least 75 disposable products that take up to 800 years to decompose and if burned can cause toxic fumes.


So do take a look at their website. Many of their products can be bought in Bradford on Avon so I’ve only shared the products I bought that I don’t think you can get here. But there is a lot more to look at.
