Small Steps = Big Changes

Take a look at our guide below for tips on how to reduce your carbon footprint.

Shop with Re-usable bags 

One of the easiest steps you can take to reduce your plastic consumption is to use a reusable bag when you go shopping. Plastic bags can cause huge problems, not only do they take thousands of years to decompose, but they are also a huge risk to marine life. Every year hundreds of thousands of marine animals are killed by consuming plastic bags. 

We found these concerning statistics and are encouraging all of our shoppers to go plastic free for July and beyond. 

  • Every day around 8 million pieces of plastic makes their way into our oceans
  • 88% of the sea’s surface is polluted by plastic waste
  • Britain contributes an estimated 1.7 million tonnes of plastic annually.

Purchase your reusable bag from our Wilko store today, this customisable all-natural cotton bag is just £2* and is perfect for cutting down your plastic bag consumption.

Change your beauty products to ones with all-natural ingredients

Make the change at our Holland & Barrett store today with Clean beauty! Clean Beauty is a game changer in the beauty industry, all products have natural origins and are free from synthetic ingredients that are thought to be harmful – making them both healthy and sustainable!

Use Natural Cleaning Products

Green cleaning products do not use harmful chemicals that are bad for the environment and are non-recyclable/ biodegradable. Instead, they use more natural and organic methods of cleaning which are less harmful to the environment and biodegradable.
