We need everyone doing zero waste imperfectly, not a handful doing it perfectly......
Welcome to An Ethical Life . . .
We are a small independent business with a huge goal - to create a more eco-friendly world.
Plastic pollution is a huge problem, causing detrimental effects on our planet and wildlife. We are here to help you use less of this single use plastic and unnecessary packaging.
We stock a huge range of store cupboard ingredients, household cleaning products and other zero waste merchandise, so bring along your empty plastic bottles, containers, glass jars and pots etc. and fill them up in our store.
‘Plastic pollution can afflict land, waterways and oceans. It is estimated that 1.1 to 8.8 million metric tons (MT) of plastic waste enters the ocean from coastal communities each year. Living organisms, particularly marine animals, can be harmed either by mechanical effects, such as entanglement in plastic objects, problems related to ingestion of plastic waste, or through exposure to chemicals within plastics that interfere with their physiology. Effects on humans include disruption of various hormonal mechanisms’. (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic_pollution)
"After being recommended to An Ethical Life by a friend I visited the shop and was surprised how great the prices are, so I'm saving on creating waste and its not costing me more than I would normally spend"
