our sustainability HeroES



Leo's Box


Leo's Box is one of my favourite small eco-friendly businesses. Founded by 16 year old Lysander in London, his mission is clear - to bring eco-friendly products at unbeatable prices to the home and enable customers to do their bit for the planet. And he's got the B-Corp accreditation to prove it. Now that Flora Beverley has joined Lysander at Leo's Box, this clever duo will be an unstoppable pair of eco warriors bringing customers the best eco products - trialled and tested by the founders themselves!


How does it work?


Sign up as a member and pay a nominal fee of £4/month. This allows you access to all the members products so you can shop online whenever you need to. The delivery fees are very low and you might even have the pleasure of meeting Leo when he hand-delivers orders. Or if you prefer to make a

one-off purchase, take a look at their range of beautiful boxes which make perfect gifts.

LAUNDRY



1. Lavender Laundry Liquid & Fabric Conditioner, Bower Collective

These lightly scented laundry products provide 25 washes per litre.


2. Bio-D Bleach Powder, Bower Collective

This bleaching powder works brilliantly on whites to remove stains without the need for bleach. The powder does come in a plastic pouch as it is oxygen activated and needs to be protected however this plastic packaging is something that Bio-D are working to move away from.



That's the round-up.

You can contribute to a healthier planet by becoming consumers of brands whose priorities are to do good for the planet!
