Easy Switches You Can Make For The Environment This Earth Hour

As Earth Hour approaches, we traditionally switch off our lights for an hour to symbolize our commitment to the planet. However this year, we're amplifying our efforts by offering you practical changes that extend beyond the hour. Join us in embracing small, sustainable adjustments for Earth Hour that promise long-term environmental benefits.

Sleep easy | Choose bedding made from natural or recycled fibers

Whether you are a linen lover or cotton converter, making the switch to sustainable bedding has never been easier or accessible! Just like your food, clothing or furniture, it is important to consider whether or not you’re sleeping under sustainably sourced and ethically made bedding

Take your pick from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton bedding or ethically sourced French flax linen for a comfortable (and conscious) night’s sleep. Stylish AND good for the environment. 

Green is good | Get your green thumb on

Having your own veggie garden right at your doorstep is not only convenient, but it means less waste, zero packaging and no transport emissions. The short walk to your backyard veggie garden has some seriously impressive results on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

To top it off, cook up an abundant home-grown feast using environmentally conscious homewares, sustainably sourced French flax table linen and ethically made enamelware.

Your new favourite companion | Switch to reusable shopping bags

Remember to take along reusable shopping bags the next time you leave the house! Just one reusable bag can replace up to 500 single-use plastic bags, helping to reduce landfill waste.

Clean AND green | Wash your clothes on a cold wash cycle 

Did you know that around 90% of the energy used by the washing machine goes towards heating the water? Using cold water to wash your clothes eliminates this energy, making your clothes and the planet happy!

One and done | Single use plastics are out, reusables are in

Did you know that if you use a reusable coffee cup or water bottle at least 15 times, you’ll offset the environmental impact of making it. Plus, if you continue to use them every day for a year, you’ve prevented 365 single-use items from ending up in landfill. Grab your Kip&Co reusable drink bottle today.

Sustainable self care | Shorter showers

Taking shorter showers is just one of many ways to reduce water use, conserve our drinking water and reduce household carbon emissions. It's as simple as cutting your daily shower from eight minutes to four minute saves approximately 36L of water. It's also a super easy way to reduce your water bill. Win win!
