It’s plastic-free July… choose to refuse single-use plastics, this month, and onwards!
As plastic-free July enters its final two weeks, we want to share some simple swaps that you may be able to make for good. 🌎🌱
On our Facebook and Instagram, every day for the rest of July we're sharing plastic-free substitutes and WHY they are worth investing in. Our sister brand nil products are also sharing swaps for the rest of July… head over to their socials for double inspiration.
Remember, YOU have the power to influence change in where you choose to spend your money. We can influence plastic manufacturers and businesses; and have the power to inspire others with simple acts like using sustainable alternatives to single-use plastic in everyday activities.

PLASTIC FREE JULY: effortless eco swap #7
We all know those yellow and green scourers - that pick up an awful smell. Next time you need a new one, swap to the Munch Natural Scourer.
It is a great alternative to synthetic sponges/scourers. Made from natural cellulose, this sponge is able to absorb water that's 18 times its own dry weight. PLUS, they don’t collect bad odours like other sponges, and you can safely sanitize them in the dishwasher. So say goodbye to those germy and stinky cleaning sponges. 🙈
PLASTIC FREE JULY: effortless eco swap #8
When you have leftovers, do you cover these with cling wrap or tinfoil? Instead... swap to our Munch Organic Cotton Food Covers.
They are reusable, and 100% biodegradable once you're done with them. PLUS - they save you money, as they are a one-time purchase - you can't just run out. 🌎
PLASTIC FREE JULY: effortless eco swap #9
Did you know that many disposable tea bags are made from plastic? Not only is this bad for our soil, but once heated, micro-plastics enter the tea we drink! Next time you're buying tea, make the swap to loose leaf - and pop it into our Munch Reusable Tea Bags.
Information about previously unknown secrets of home-brewed tea has been making the rounds on social media, and some surprising facts are emerging.
⭐️ First and most shocking, there’s actually plastic in many of the popular tea bags on the market.
⭐️As a result of this, you shouldn’t be composting these tea bags, as you’re contaminating the compost with non-biodegradable plastics.
⭐️Since they aren’t compostable or recyclable, they end up as waste in a landfill.
Making the switch to reusable bags can be easy and will work out cheaper in the long run! Loose leaf tea comes in such a huge variety of flavours too...
Go eco-warriors! Choose to refuse single-use plastics today. We hope these effortless eco swaps help to create new habits in your home. Make the world of difference, every day, in every way, with Munch. 💚
