Kind Store Treats
Updated: Jun 11, 2020
The Kind Store is an absolute must for sustainable shopping. The entirely zero waste online store houses everything you would ever need in starting your sustainable living journey. The incredible venture was started by the wonderful Tash in 2018, who is incredibly passionate about all of the 100+ independent brands that she supports. She is really pioneering a British founded company where shes ticked all of the ethical and sustainable boxes possible, whilst even donating 10% of profits to charity. The Kind Store is the perfect example of putting your money where your mouth is.
On the website, you can find EVERYTHING, from reusable nappies to natural toothpastes to home wears, like washing up utensils and silicone zip lock bags. So there really is no excuse for not being able to find an eco-friendly alternative to all of your shopping whims. The Kind Store is not a destination for the hippie and tree huggers amongst us, as all of the products are beautifully shot to look luxury and desirable in every way catering to both men and women’s every need.
In the time of the company’s existence is has incredibly saved:
- 2520 plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles
- 2619 cans of deodorant
- Nearly 500 disposable razors
- 367 women have switched from disposable period products. In one year, that equates to saving roughly 103,494 disposable period products from landfill or incorrectly flushed down the toilet.
- 2237 plastic shower or hand gel bottles.
After a long chat with Tash, she very kindly sent over a few bits for me to try out.
After my chat with Tash, we both agreed that the look of the razor can look a little daunting for many but not to fear as it glides effortlessly over the skin with no need to apple any pressure. Holding the razor its lovely and weighty and feels incredibly high quality, something to be cherished. The razor is unisex and comes with a blade in already to last over 10 shaves. The site also stocks blade replacements. The great thing about this is that the blades are easily recyclable, just popped into a tin can in the recycling bin giving it its zero waste title. Though for me, I wouldn’t think of a razor as the top of my reusable purchase list, I would highly recommend not only due to its fantastic quality but also the sheer amount of waste that comes from plastic disposable razors alone.
I’ve been using a natural deodorant for over 6 months now and there is nothing in me that sees going back to conventional alternatives. Though there is much of a stigma around natural deodorants as it if they actually work, I can testify that they certainly do! Available in a great variety of scents like grapefruit and mint, not only do they smell great but are effective whilst containing nourishing ingredients too. Simply scoop out some from the little glass jar, briefly rub between your fingers then apply under the arms. Simple and easy to use, no reason not to! I had the orange and bergamot and it smells SENSATIONAL!!
Shampoo and Conditioner Bar
This is something that I was so keen to try out as its been on my radar for a little while now. The Kind Store stocks a variety of options, so something for everyone to try out from curly hair to oily and fine hair. The ingredients are completely clean and super nourishing, such as quinoa protein and jojoba oils, a real treat for your hair. I got the normal hair bar and it works a treat – you just rub it as you would soap or straight into your hair and very quickly it works into a lather. My bar was a 2in1 shampoo and conditioner but I found I still needed to condition afterwards.
I would highly encourage you to have a peek at all the offerings on the Kind Store. It will leave you wanting to replace all your tired household and skincare items in exchange for utterly beautiful planet friendly alternatives, that you will want to stock your house full of!
Also a big thank you to the gorgeous Tash for sending me these amazing treats over!
