WELCOME TO KICK PLASTIC!
ABOUT KICK PLASTIC
The definition of a habit is, "something that you do often and is hard to change". Let's face it, many of us have been seduced by the convenience of plastic in all areas of our lives. In fact, our lives have become so entangled in plastic use it has, without doubt, become a hard habit to kick.
I quickly learned this when I set about making our home and lives an oasis of plastic free perfection. It was everywhere, and it soon felt like an overwhelming and unachievable task.
Then I remembered a saying, "Perfection is as good as impossible - don't let your drive for it stop you from improving".
Becoming less reliant on plastic isn't about striving for plastic free perfection all at once, it's about making small but continuous improvements, over time, to change the habit of a lifetime.
Kick Plastic aims to bring you a range of carefully selected and researched replacements to single use and short life plastic items and reusable eco products for the whole family.
We believe that living a more sustainable life should be accessible and affordable to everyone with any budget. We will offer a good range of eco products, all in the same place, to help you make positive changes more easily.
If we all strive to make small achievable changes to our plastic habits, collectively the world becomes a better place, and we can kick plastic for good!
I live in glorious Herefordshire, with my husband and three small humans. I also have a cat with a wonky leg, four rescue hens and a cockerel called Rocky.
I love nature, walking, camping and enjoy exploring the countryside. I have always tried to do my bit. I refuse, reuse, and recycle. I like to have a good rummage around in secondhand shops. I make do and mend if I can. I want my children to grow up in a world that's free from unnecessary plastic and waste. I try to instill in them a sense of how to live ethically and sustainably, and how we can protect our wonderful planet, that we are all fortunate enough to call home. Oh, and I drink minty tea by the plastic free bucket load!
