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. Green hair

With organic hair care you shouldn’t need to wash your hair as frequently, meaning less water, shampoo and packaging! Try Tabitha James Kraan’s Clean Shampoo – 100% natural with 73.1% certified organic ingredients.

2. Organic wines

Switching to organic wine is good news for the farmers, the soil, biodiversity – and you! Try the mixed case of six Organic Everyday wines from Vintage Roots.

3. Natural beauty

Natural and organic skincare products will help nourish and heal, leaving your skin in tip-top condition and helping your natural beauty to shine through. Try Weleda Skin Food for an instant and all-natural glow.

4. Dairy with purpose

If you like dairy, go for one of the simplest switches and opt for Yeo Valley Organic milk. Nature is at the centre of this family-run farm, where there’s a strong focus on soil health and biodiversity.

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 onto supermarket shelves.

We think that if you don’t know the real options, you don’t really get to choose. Click here to view our full range of My Green Pod Hero products and services, in sectors ranging from Money and Energy to Health and Beauty.
