Ecoegg..bamboo toothbrushes and more.

Hello all how are you?
I have been using my Ecoegg since the January this year.
Its fantastic..yes the original outlay was £24.99 but i got 3 refills and also the black balls.
I have not used any refills yet..i will soon and that means it has lasted through 2-3 washes a day and removed stains.
My washing comes out lovely and clean..not overly fragranced either.It just smells clean nothing fancy.
I like it because it means i am not buying my washing products in big plastic containers that have to be recycled..which i highly doubt as that plastic in the ocean came from somewhere.
I have stopped using fabric conditioner altogether,Iris's ezcema was being irritated by it..since using the Ecoegg it has calmed down a lot.
The clothes are  not hard and crispy like you would think without conditioner..infact they are just as soft.
It means that when i open draws and wardrobes i am not overwhelmed with fake fragrances..just a hint of the lavender sachets that i place in them ,which is lovely and 100% real.The lavender is from our garden and the girls and i make fresh new ones every year.
I am not saying its for everyone and you have to do it..its personal choice.
But if you have a few minutes checkout the website.

Ditching the plastic is a hot topic right now..but what do you do with the plastics you have left.
Well i am going to use all our tubs and storage containers for as long as i can and then reuse in the greenhouses and make use of them until they are knackered.
Bottles will be used to make into plant holders and a home made pouffe.
Toothbrushes are being replaced with bamboo ones..the old ones are being used to clean around taps and grout and inside the washing machine drawer.
I am going to have a go at making my own beeswax covers and not buy clingfilm.
I already have a lot of brown paper bags which sandwiches will be wrapped in from now.
No plastic bags in our house..i have invested in canvas bags for shopping.
There are lots of little ways we can change to help save the planet.
What have you done to change how you use plastic?


  1. i use a shampoo bar instead of a bottle, a bar of soap instead of shower gel, i reuse plastic pots, aldis greek yoghurt pots are really useful, i also knitted some make up removing cloths with cotton yarn so i could stop buying cotton wool pads in plastic bags

    1. Wow a shampoo bar..where did you find them..are they expensive.
      Your make up removing cloths sounds brillaint..all our lastic is slowly being removed from the house to greenhouses..

  2. I already use re-useable shopping bags and I just got my oder for re-useable mesh bags - I will use these in place of plastic bags for produce etc. I also keep a supply of jars for bulk food purchases - so little by little I'm doing what I can.
    I am interested in trying that eco-egg for washing - I already have a supply of those balls that you use in the dryer instead of fabric sheets and they work just fine! I only put sheets & towels in the dryer and hate them to feel too rough.
    I have been looking at those bamboo toothbrushes but they are very expensive! How long do they last? I tend to replace my toothbrush every 6 weeks or so...

    1. Hi Margie..i have found some bamboo toothbrushes on Ebay..10 for under £5..
      I too have the tumble drier balls
      I love my ecoegg..wouldn't change it
