Seven bargain sustainable buys to help you go plastic-free in 2022

MANY of us have resolved to cut down on our plastic use to help the planet.

Disposable cups, cutlery and straws can end up in landfill or the sea.

Here is how to easily replace them with sustainable alternatives that will not cost the Earth . . . 

CUT OUT THE CUPS: Got a serious coffee habit? Reduce waste by buying a reusable cup.

You can pick up the Typhoon glass reusable 400ml pink coffee cup at studio.co.uk for just £10.

Also get a reusable water bottle. The glass mint silicone bottle (500ml) at Tesco costs £4.

DITCH THE PLASTIC: For eating on the go, check out the reusable bamboo cutlery set — including knife, fork, spoon, straw and straw cleaner in a cotton bag — for just £3.99 at newlivingstore.co.uk.

Bamboo is a natural, sustainable material that grows quickly. Products made from it are biodegradable.

BRUSH UP: Replace your plastic toothbrush with a bamboo one for £2.95 from seaforyourselfco.com. Or Tesco has the Pro Formula bamboo toothbrush for £2.

ALL WRAPPED UP: Cut out clingfilm and use beeswax wraps to keep food fresh.

Get 15 per cent off purchases at beeswaxwraps.co.uk with code SUN15 at checkout until the end of January.

IN THE BAG: Replace single-use carrier bags with Uniqlo’s eco-friendly off-white lightweight reusable bag, just £2.90.

Or pick up the Let’s Create natural cotton bag at Wilko for £1.60. Grab your paints or pens and jazz it up with a design of your choosing.

HEAVEN SCENT: Rather than spritzing clothes with chemicals to mask odours, check out the eco-friendly charcoal air purifiers at coopersofstortford.co.uk.

These chemical-free bags use 100-per-cent natural bamboo-activated charcoal to eliminate odours and absorb moisture.

They are currently reduced from £15.99 to £9.99 for a pack of three. SAVE: £6
