Thank you for being here
You’ve taken the first step to do what you can. We can all make small changes that have a big impact.
Here are some facts that can help you in your buying decision.
Let’s aim to replace plastics with reusable products!
Plastic doesn’t degrade and right now each New Zealander adds about 25kg of plastic to landfills a year. So lets try to use reusable products and help to lower that amount a good deal. We have a good range of reusable products.
A single sip has a big impact!
As an alternative to single use straws and cutlery, reusable items are long-lasting and don’t contribute to landfills. Metal straws can be used again and again, and reusable cups help drinks to stay hot or cold. See our range
Keep your produce fresh the eco way!
Did you know that produce will spoil in faster in single-use bags? Many kinds of produce create ethylene gas, which can cause fruits and vegetables to spoil faster. Reusable bags are breathable, allowing that gas to escape—and helping your produce last longer! Have a peek at our Eco Saint range.
Make the switch to bars instead of bottles
Many soaps and shampoos don’t recycle well, but using bars instead of liquids can help the environment. The ones we sell at Somewhat Green are all-natural, meaning they’re great for your body and the environment at the same time!
Switch it up!
There are so many items that we use every day that have reusable or eco-friendly alternatives. Fire starters have an organic option, food wrap has washable, reusable beeswax, and even dishtowels and rubbish bags have compostable, biodegradable options. Making some small changes can have a huge impact! We have lots of options at Somewhat Green.
