The A Slice of Green Wellbeing range offers sustainable alternatives to everyday bathroom essentials.
Fabric reusables are made from GOTS certified organic cotton, offering a plastic-free and sustainable option to bathroom disposables.
Our manufacturer is a family business with their own sewing unit in Tamil Nadu, India. We visited the unit in 2018 and were impressed by the high standards.
The cotton is grown on non GM, small farms in South India where the dry climate helps the cotton to grow well. It is then woven in GOTS certified weaving units and then screen printed using organic, azo-free dyes and sewn by our manufacturer.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres and means the entire textile supply chain is independently certificated including both ecological and social criteria.
The small nailbrush is made by our producer in Germany from plant-based bristles and a beech wood base sourced from a sustainably certified supplier. The plant-based bristles ensure that the brushes are vegan-friendly.
Cellulose is the material that makes up the walls of a plant cell and our sponges are made from wood pulp & cotton, which are abundant and renewable natural materials. Our UK manufacturer sources the raw material from the EU and creates usable shapes and sizes for cleaning and cosmetic tasks. Although the sponges go through a baking and rinsing process to achieve the pore structure, they are more eco-friendly than plastic sponges as the manufacturing process is less toxic and they are biodegradable and home compostable.
Cellulose sponge is hydrophilic, which means it readily absorbs water and can hold up to 10x its dry weight in water. This makes it a very effective cleaning aid and our sponges come in a range of shapes and sizes for cleaning and washing tasks both domestic and cosmetic, inside and outside the home!
Cellulose sponges are biodegradable and can be composted. To speed up decomposition, cut the sponge into small pieces before adding it to your compost pile.
