Start 2020 with this amazing reusable giveaway, which is the perfect way to help to protect our environment by reducing the amount of single use products you use.
For a chance to win a Tali’s Homemade reusable cotton shopping bag and a set of reusable bamboo face rounds, have a look at the entry details below.
Why it’s great to switch to reusables
We all know that single use items are bad for the environment and create excessive waste. Making one small change can have such a big impact! Take this giveaway as an example. If you went grocery shopping twice a week, with enough groceries to fill one shopping bag, one single reusable shopping bag can in one year prevent approx 730 single use plastic bags from ending up in a landill, the ocean or from having to be recycled after a single use. And using a reusable bamboo face round every day will prevent 365 single use cotton facerounds from ending up in the bin. That’s almost 5 plastic bags full of cotton rounds worth! If you consider that with proper care, these reusable items can be used for years, just think of all the good these items will do over it’s lifespan!
Tali’s homemade reusable products
Tali’s Homemade has an amazing range of reusable products, from reusable fruit and veggie bags, and reusable shopping bags, to their brand new reusable face rounds. The reusable shopping bags are handmade with wax printed cotton fabric and come in a variety of patterns. I have bought quite a few for myself, and as gifts. They are available in standard tote size, and a heavy duty shopper version.
Tali’s reusable face rounds are hand-crochetted with bamboo yarn by locals in order to promote job-creation and community upliftment. The face round packaging is made from left-over fabric from their reusable fruit and veggie bags. There are 4 x colourful reusable bamboo face rounds in each bag. These reusable face rounds are a great replacement for single use cotton rounds, cotton wool and even wet wipes.
