Buy ethical home and garden products
There are many products available for your home maintenance and gardening. However, many of these contain hazardous chemicals, including pesticides. Use GoEthical to search the environmental credentials of sellers and their products before buying.
Find brands that sell ethical products for your home and gardening requirements
If you’re a gardening buff, you’re probably growing organic herbs, fruits and vegetables. Plastic gardening trays and pots aren’t biodegradable and will only end up in landfills. You need to opt for taupe pots, terracotta pots or ethically made earthen peat pots. Recycling is a great way to become environmentally friendly. Look out for pots that are being given away on sites like Freecycle.org. Bamboo pots and organic pots made from rice hulls are also available. They biodegrade into organic matter, rich with nutrients and prevent additional pollution on the planet.
Sustainable consumer products for gardening
The GoEthical ethical consumer app features many retailers offering 100% natural eco-products ranging from organic fertilisers, weed killers and implements. A classic example is the humble garden hose. Almost every household in the UK has one. However, many people choose the ones made from toxic PVC (polyvinyl chloride). It’s always better to choose the natural rubber ones, as they are biodegradable. Similarly, the GoEthical app UK store features many other ethical products for the maintenance of your home and garden. Browse the app to select the best ones for your requirements.
Environmentally friendly products from an eco-friendly shopping app
Products you use in your home and garden need to always be organic and eco-friendly. It’s better to use hand-forged gardening tools, instead of the supermarket products. If you’re thinking of planting flowers or hedges, it’s best to go organic. These saplings and seeds are available from retailers on the GoEthical app. Socially responsible starter kits are available to grow herbs like basil, parsley, rosemary and sage.
