There’s a sustainable alternative to just about anything, and these five ethical products and services are simple switches that would make a big difference – and could save you some cash along the way.

1. Refillable washing up

Wave goodbye to single-use plastics with the refillable Wash Up from Fill Refill. Vegan, cruelty-free and biodegradable ingredients, certified plastic free by A Plastic Planet.

2. Filtered water

Switch bottled for filtered water to save cash as well as single-use plastic. The Coldstream Undercounter Water Purification System provides great-tasting water straight from your tap.

3. Luxury eco-break

For an eco break with five-star luxury, try Delphina Hotels & Resorts – Europe’s Leading Green Independent Hotel Group and home to Europe’s Leading Green Resort (World Travel Awards).

4. A green web host

If you own a website, switching to Krystal UK Web Hosting could make a big difference to your operations and the planet. The purpose-driven company has pledged to plant and protect 1 billion trees by 2030.

5. Plant a tree

If you’re about to buy a product you don’t really need, you can satisfy your craving (and save some money) by putting it back and planting a tree with TreeSisters instead!

These superstar products and services are ethical alternatives from companies that are doing things differently.

You may not have heard of all these green pearls, as they’re from companies that don’t necessarily spend their profits on mass advertising or negotiating the cut-rate bulk deals that would get them on supermarket shelves.

We think that if you don’t know the real options, you don’t really get to choose.
