The environment is something that should be important to everyone. It is something worth making an effort for every day, and even if it seems that one person cannot make a difference, they can. And not necessarily by making extraordinary changes and spending a lot of time, it is something that can be done by changing the daily routine to a more sustainable one. Even the small steps you take before work each morning can help the planet.
But... How to have a more sustainable routine?
- Try to change your shampoo and cleaning products for packaging that is not made of plastic.
- Look for products that are natural.
- Turn off the water while you apply the shampoo.
- You do not need to stop using the products you already own. Instead, think about how you can replace these items once you almost run out or if you need to replace them at all.

They choose manufacturers who manage waste and have goals to recycle more and limit waste and collect all the fabric waste from in house and from the manufacturers. These are sorted in colours and when they have a certain amount they have an agreement with a re- spinning mill in Java, Indonesia, to produce new yarn and fabric from the leftovers.
