With the Queen’s Jubilee just around the corner (2-5 June), Ecoegg suggests you make your celebrations as eco-friendly as possible with their top tips for a Jubilee celebration that doesn’t compromise the environment.
Think reusable to help to reduce waste
Unfortunately, with celebrations there is often a lot of waste caused by people using disposable plates, cups, cutlery, tablecloths and napkins. By using reusable items, you help to prevent this. Plus, fabric tablecloths, dainty teacups and glassware add a sense of occasion to your celebrations! If you don’t want to go down the glass route, you can also use reusable plastic cups and containers.
The innovative, egg shaped, eco-friendly ecoegg Laundry Egg completely replaces washing detergent and conditioner, helping to reduce single use plastic in the home. It also helps you save money as it works out at just 10p per wash when you refill and reuse. Available from eceogg.com.
Use eco-friendly alternatives when getting your home Jubilee ready for visitors
If you’re planning on hosting a Jubilee celebration at home, use eco-friendly products to help you get the job done– without compromising the environment.
Keep your house tidy and clean up any spills during your celebrations with ecoegg Bamboo Towels, an eco-friendly replacement for kitchen roll. Made from 90% bamboo fibres, these absorbent towels can be used to wipe away spills, or dry or dust surfaces and then reused. Each sheet can be washed at 40 degrees up to 85 times, giving you up to 1,700 uses per roll. Available from eceogg.com for just £5 May 27th-29th (normal RRP £7.99)
Launder using planet friendly cleaning products
The ecoegg Laundry Egg is filled with mineral pellets that clean with a gentle formula for a more environmentally friendly wash and is a great way to clean your tablecloth and napkins without any harmful “nasties”, such as enzymes, chlorine bleaches, phosphates, parabens, SLS/SLES or palm oil. Once your linens are washed, simply hang them out to air dry (we are hoping for a sunny Jubilee!) to save on energy usage and to help to reduce emissions. Available from eceogg.com.
Lisa Whalley-Smith, Head of Brand and Marketing, Ecoegg UK, said: “By consciously choosing eco-friendly products, and trying to use reusable alternatives wherever possible, you can enjoy your Jubilee celebrations without having a negative impact on the environment.”
