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. Sleep easy

Switch to the first and only UK-made 100% biodegradable polyester pillow! The vegan and hypoallergenic Biosnooze feels like down, but without a single feather in sight.

2. Eco gifts

Stuck for gift inspiration? Now you can mark any special occasion – from births to weddings – with the 9Trees tree gift, which comes with a wooden decoration.

3. Green your money

Worried about the impact of your banks, pensions or bills? Calculate the carbon footprint of your money and switch to a greener solution using the MotherTree switching service.

4. Organic perfume

Go natural this spring – Haoma Organic Eau de Parfum is a sophisticated and pure perfume made with 8 organic essential oils – and no synthetic fragrances.

5. A taste of the Highlands

Arbikie Highland Rye Single Grain Scotch Whisky – the first rye Scotch for over 100 years – revives an authentic way of distilling.

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.
