The Best Plastic-Free February Resources

plastic free february resources uk

Looking for plastic-free February resources? Right this way – I’ve got lots!

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. All with the aim of bringing 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! 

Plastic-Free February Resources

Despite this, I’ve been able to make some progress. Here are my plastic-free February resources that I’ve come up with over the years:

About Fresh Clean Home

Fresh Clean Home, showcasing recipes for natural cleaning products by Moral Fibres author Wendy Graham, was released on 1st February 2018 by Pavilion.

Learn how to make your home smell as fresh as a daisy with these eco-friendly, money-saving, germ-busting recipes.

Using a base of essential oils and natural ingredients, these cleaning products are easy to make, are kinder to your skin and to the environment, while being as effective as any shop-bought solution.

The recipes use simple, inexpensive ingredients that are widely available such as bicarbonate of soda, vinegar, salt and citrus fruit, and will leave your home sparkling clean. You can even customise the fragrances to make your home smell crisp, time and time again.

Fresh Clean Home guides the reader from the kitchen to laundry and the bathroom, and also includes a section of recipes for specific household cleaning products, such as window and mirror cleaner, carpet and upholstery spot cleaner and sticky stuff remover.

Clean every nook and cranny, with surface cleaners and bathroom shiners, laundry powder and fabric conditioner, kettle descaler and more, for a beautiful, fresh clean home.
