Sometimes, making your life just that little bit more eco can be a case of just swapping one product for another. I swapped my regular washing up gloves which had worn out for If You Care's fair trade rubber ones. Love the bright green colour.
To be honest, I didn't look around much for ones available here and had to get these online, which kind of defeats the point to some extent...but perhaps if I looked round a bit more in Sydney, I would find some fair trade or otherwise sustainable/eco friendly etc. ones. Or has anyone out there got a recommendation?
They were a little bit pricey, but I figure that money is an investment in people and in the future, so I am happy to go without fancy clothes or expensive shoes or whatever to do that as much as I can.
