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. Carbon-neutral loo roll

Change the world – change your toilet paper! Switch to 100% recycled loo roll from Serious Tissues; it’s the UK’s first carbon-neutral toilet paper.

2. Green hosting

Switch your company’s website to a fast and reliable website and email hosting solution from Krystal. It puts purpose ahead of profit – and has pledged to plant and protect 1 billion trees by 2030.

3. Join the party

If you only hit one festival this season, make it count. Valley Fest is a family-friendly food and music festival held on organic land – with a backdrop as sparkling as the glitter tattoos.

4. A cleaner home

Get all the cleaning products you need in one switch with the Clean Living Complete Cleaning Caddy. The non-toxic products are refillable and effective. Win-win.

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!

Heroes of the season

We’ve picked these products because we believe they are all best in their class for people and the planet.

They represent simple, sustainable switches that will help to keep you, your home and the planet healthy – without compromising on luxury or performance!

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.
