Eco-friendly Packaging

There are tons of options when we say “eco-friendly packing”.  You can use Kraft paper, honeycomb wrapper, old newspapers, calendars, boxes, and many more. 

Okay, but the real question is… What’s the BEST one? 

Simple. Whatever you already have at home is the best option. Kraft papers and honeycomb wrappers are good as they’re plastic-free but using whatever you have at home is still the BEST option. That way, we get to avoid unnecessary wastes by recycling and reducing our carbon footprint. 

Here are some recycled packaging ideas that you might want to try: 

We also use old/donated shoe boxes and we often place a note to remind the person who gets the package to REUSE it.

Don't be fooled, they ain't food!

So before you buy any packaging material, try to use whatever you have at home first! 

Think outside the trash! RECYCLE! 

Simplest way to get mold out of Bamboo

Bamboo is an organic material so the growth of mold is faster than plastic. Organic materials breed mold when in warm/damp conditions, so this is simply mother nature taking its cause.

So How do you get mold out of bamboo?

Things you need:

– Old cloth (2 pieces)
– Dishwashing liquid soap
– Sunshine

Step 1: Rinse off the mold using old cloth and liquid soap.

Step 2: Wash off the bamboo toothbrush with water.

Step 3: Wipe the toothbrush using a clean cloth so the bamboo won’t absorb so much water.

Step 4: Leave your toothbrush in a dry place for 1-2 hours where there’s rays of natural sunlight.

Remember: Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun kills most mold and spores, which is why you don’t see it growing outside in the open.
