The brand offers a range of refillable all-purpose cleaning products and hand soap packaged in aluminum containers, as well as reusable spray nozzles and pumps.

Skin and body care brand Haeckels has been around for the past decade and has been a pioneer for sustainable skincare in the UK.

Plus eliminates the use of unnecessary plastic with their dissolvable packet-based body wash. Once you’re in the shower, rip open the packet, and it can all go safely down the drain. We love this product because whether you’re looking for something for everyday use, travel, or throwing in your gym bag, the brand innovates a product that we maybe didn’t realize needed a change. For daily use, you can purchase the refillable dispenser, and for on-the-go, the travel packs are perfect.

Freestyle is working to give parents peace of mind when choosing the best diapers.
