One of the real joys of buying #plasticfree is sourcing the stuff in local shops. The excitement when you see milk in glass bottle in the newsagents is beyond words.

However sometime you have to buy on line. Most of the products featured have an online option to buy. Though we try to link with business we know we cannot always do this. Then we try to find a similar product on Amazon.

Amazon is a very dirty word at the moment and I thought long and hard before suggesting them.  Heres why I went ahead….. No we are not entirely happy with Amazons recent history. However, we have always found their service to be good and their packaging usually compostable.

If you buy a product via this link we do get an affiliation fee for this. This is not why we do it.

  1. My company ShoppaBox ltd make here in the UK an eco-friendly alternative to supermarket plastic bags called MyBuddy-Box. It is a super strong yet really lightweight, folding box can be used to transport your shopping simply and safely instead of single use or other floppy plastic bags.

    When it’s not being used, MyBuddy-Box simply folds down flat, taking up very little space yet when open it has thousands of uses from laundry, toys, picnics, camping and caravanning, home-office filing and supermarket shopping.

    We make it here in Britain and have been awarded a patent for the innovative design. It is made from 100% recyclable material and comes in a variety of stylish designs and when opened out, easily fits the supermarket trolley. Because it’s a box it can carry far more than any bag – supporting up to 8 bags worth of shopping so not only will you save yourself money once the plastic bag tax is introduced come October this year but you’ll be saving our marine life and our wildlife too.

    Do please take a look at and help us spread the word
