Fizzy ways to reduce your plastic footprint

Soda Stream's Black Spirit machine helps reduce plastic consumption

IT’S ESTIMATED that more than 40kg of plastic waste a year is generated for each of us. To help cut it back, Soda Stream is offering some tips:

Clean up your beauty routine

Cotton pads often contain synthetic fibres that don’t break down – switch to a reusable alternative.

Ditch disposable face masks

Opting for a reusable one will help protect the planet, saving disposable masks from being sent to landfill or ending up in the sea.

Smell good and save the planet

Switch your shampoo, conditioner and body wash to bar alternatives for a no-waste option. They can last longer too.

The must-have accessory is totally a tote

We all have those moments where we have to buy a 10p plastic bag at the supermarket because we forgot our own. Why not buy a tote that folds up and you can take with you on the go?

Shop seasonally and get creative in the kitchen

Asparagus, broccoli, carrots, spinach are in season right now. Make the most of restrictions easing and cook up a fun, seasonal feast.

Make water sparkling at the touch of a button

Switch to SodaStream to save thousands of single-use plastic bottles.

The company says one gas cylinder makes up to 60 litres of bubbles. What’s more, the entire SodaStream Spirit range has been certified as reducing carbon by the Carbon Trust.

SodaStream’s Spirit machine is available via the SodaStream website or through selected retailers in a range of colours, including Icy Blue, Black, White and a chic Urban Grey.

Eco-conscious consumers can also exchange their SodaStream gas cylinders and save £10 on the cost of a new one from retailers including Sainsbury’s, Currys, Argos, Ryman, Robert Dyas and Lakeland.
