SPONSORED: 4 plastic-free products to try this month

It's becoming easier and easier to live a plastic-free lifestyle, thanks to the various high-quality products on the market today, from skincare treats to everyday essentials. Here are four finds to help you make the swap to more ethical alternatives.

1. Apricot Face Polish, £15,

When it comes to ridding your beauty cabinet of plastic, it's not just about the containers that your products come in, but what's in the products themselves, too. Herbfarmacy's organic Apricot Face Polish is and always has been free of plastic microbeads. The polish contains nourishing apricot oil and white clay to gently remove dry surface skin cells, remove impurities and tighten pores to reveal fresh, brighter-looking skin. With natural jojoba beads and fragrances of grapefruit and ylang ylang, this ultra-gentle formula polishes the skin for a smoother complexion. All Herbfarmacy products are made with herbs grown on the brand's organic farm. The company is certified organic with Soil Association, registered Cruelty Free with PETA and, wherever it can, uses plastic-free packaging.

2. Klean Kanteen 592ml Insulated Reflect, £37.95,

One of the easiest plastic-free swaps to make is to ditch plastic water bottles for reusable ones. Klean Kanteen’s Reflect bottle is made of only three materials: sustainably harvested bamboo, stainless steel and food-grade silicone. It's the ideal sustainable alternative to single-use plastic bottles, which are an ever-growing problem. Not just for water, the bottle features a Climate Lock double-wall vacuum insulation, meaning it will keep contents cold for up to 20 hours and iced for up to 40. Perfect for any occasion, it’s a great bottle to help keep you hydrated and healthy. With your stainless-steel, reusable Klean Kanteen bottle you’ll never have to use throw-away plastic bottles again.
