Editorial Feature

Be mindful about minimising the use of excessive plastic goods and packaging whenever possible by instead using only consciously made, environmentally-driven products.

Pet Care

All pet shampoos are not green and ethically equal. Certified organic ones must meet strict criteria proving they’re genuinely natural, eco-friendly and pet-safe. Green People’s AllPaws range is certified by the Organic Food Federation and approved by PETA; made with natural, non-irritating ingredients that gently cleanse and care for all dog and cat breeds.

They’re concentrated so a little goes a long way. The range includes wild mint shampoo and a sensitive, scent free one. EarthBits also does a plant-based dog shampoo bar that’s 100 per cent organic, vegan and free from palm oil and harsh chemicals.
