It’s Plastic-Free February, so in honour of this I’ve been rummaging through the Moral Fibres archives, and dusting off and updating old posts, to bring you a list of potentially useful plastic-free February resources, if like me, you are trying to take steps to reduce your plastic usage.

I feel my hands are kind of tied food-wise, as we have zero bulk shops around where I live in West Lothian.  If you have one, or several, in your area then do count your lucky stars!  Despite this, I still try my best, where budget allows (plastic-free toilet paper – why are you so eye-wateringly expensive??  £1 a roll would bankrupt my family of four!).  I also keep lobbying manufacturers and supermarkets to introduce plastic-free goods.  They love me!  Anyway, here are my plastic-free resources that I’ve come up with over the years:
