Let’s turn BLACK FRIDAY into GREEN FRIDAY!
Stressing out about the upcoming Black Friday craze?
Black Friday is a commercial day that is known to trigger people into over-consumption of things they don’t really need. We don’t want to be a part of that. Instead, we’d like to share our best 10 environmentally friendly tips on how you can turn your BLACK FRIDAY a little bit greener. Let’s go green with ImseVimse!
10 environmentally friendly tips from ImseVimse!
- TOXIC-FREE PERIOD.
Replace your regular menstrual protection with reusable options. For example, fabric cloth pads, reusable cloth tampons or menstrual cups.
- REPLACE DISPOSABLE WIPES AND HOUSEHOLD ROLLS.
Replace household rolls and disposable wipes with washable cloth wipes made of organic cotton. Or if you’re feeling nifty, why not try making your own?
- ZERO WASTE YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE.
Zero waste your makeup routine by swapping your one- time cleansing pads with reusable organic cotton ones. You can even make your own cleansing pads from an old t-shirt.
- BRING YOUR OWN SHOPPING BAG.
Bring your own shopping bags to the grocery store. A large shopping bag and small reusable produce bags for your fruits and veggies will help reduce the use of plastic bags and make the oceans happier.
- REUSABLE POOL NAPPY.
Buy a washable swim diaper instead of disposable ones. Also, reusables are so much prettier than disposable swim nappies!
- RE-USE YOUR NAPPIES.
Ditch the plastics and replace disposable nappies with cloth nappies and help reduce waste.
- WASHABLE NURSING PADS.
Replace your regular nursing pads with washable and reusable nursing inserts. Environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
- GET NAPPY FREE EARLY.
Help your child get diaper-free early to minimize waste (if you use disposable nappies) by using our training pants to aid you and your toddler in the path towards becoming potty trained.
- EXO-FRIENDLY STAIN TREATMENT.
Treat stains on clothes, cloth nappies and pads with a natural stain remover to avoid chemicals going out into our waters.
- LOOK FOR CERTIFICATIONS.
Make sure that the products you buy are toxic-free. You can do so by e.g. checking for certifications like the OEKO-tex certification, that the cotton is organic or the polyester is recycled.
