POCKET TISSUES Bamboo is the world’s fastest growing plant, and is the source and solution to making the tissue paper industry sustainable for the future. Bamboo is a grass, and regenerates from its own roots, requiring no fertiliser or replanting. As it grows bamboo absorbs up to 35% more carbon and produces 30% more oxygen than trees. Growing 30% faster than trees it is the most sustainable product in the paper market. Just 30p for a handy packet of 10 for your pocket or handbag from Cheeky Panda.  

Oryx Desert salt A pure, flavourful and 100% natural mineral-rich rock salt from the Kalahari Desert.  100% Pure, crystal-white, natural desert salt containing vital mineral and trace elements and is sustainable and renewable. As nature intended no additives, no anti-clumping agents, and no preservatives. Dried by the hot African desert sun. Unrefined and unprocessed. The underground brine lake is 100% saturated, so it takes only 4 weeks for the salt to crystallise in summer when the temperatures reach up to 47 degrees.  Fair trade Oryx Desert Salt has all the essential minerals and trace elements that exist naturally in salt, including magnesium, zinc and potassium. It provides your body with the correct balance of these minerals, as nature intended, so they can be utilised and absorbed for optimal vitality and health.  The underground streams converge and replenish an ancient underground lake of 55 million tonnes from which the salt water is pumped, laid on the pan under the hot Kalahari sun and sun-dried. This process lives in harmony with the natural rainfall and the surrounding environment.  Grinder bottles have information printed directly on the glass so they can be kept clean and don't need to be replaced. The grinder heads have a ceramic mechanism for long lasting use.  £4. each, refills available, in stock mid-August.

Face masks A reusable face covering made from 100% fair trade cotton. Coming from Earth Squared, you can rest assured that this product is a high-quality and a must-have for anyone following Government guidelines and helping to reduce the spread of viruses.  Machine washable at 60 degrees, it’s a much more sustainable way to protect yourselves than a disposable mask. Made from a premium, soft cotton which fits over the mouth and nose, attached to your face by elasticated rubber covered in polyester as ear straps. It’s simple and easy to use.  For the highest safety precautions, ensure that you remove from your face using the ear loops and clean any surfaces the covering may have touched. We advise that you wash hands before putting on, as well as after use, and avoid touching the front of the covering where possible. Please be aware that this face covering is intended to provide some level of protection against the transmission of viruses to people within a close proximity. It does not protect the wearer, nor is it PPE in terms of the relevant legislation.  £4 each.
