We'll let you in on a little secret..we don't do sustainable perfectly

With the rising cost of everything, it's hard to. Even though our soul hurts a little bit every time we shop with the retail giants and contribute to the environmental impact of our extensive consumerism, we just can't say no to the $10 Target kids' slippers. We're only human.

We're all about balance though, and we know that supporting local brands is a fantastic way to even the scales. Because we like you a lot, we'll go one step further and share our top 4 easy tips for a more sustainable home, with minimal effort.

1. Refillable skincare

If the enormity of the single-use plastic waste generated by your 5-step skincare regime is only just dawning on you, take a deep breath - it doesn't have to be this way. Not only have Peggy Sue and Sabbia Co created clean, effective formulations for your skin, but they also offer refills for most of their range. Where have you been all our lives?

2. Re-think refill

Ever wondered why you were buying soap refills in a single-use plastic bottle? Us too. Now you no longer have to. These clever Aussie brands have re-thought the way we wash and clean, and come up with tabs, powders and pods that eliminate the need for single-use plastic - just add water and minimise your impact on the environment.

3. Don't be a stinker!

Spray deodorants are well and truly a thing of the past, and have no place in our bathrooms. Especially not now that you can get that all-day freshness with Frank + Bare's incredible vegan formulation and fully recyclable packaging - good for your skin, and even better for the environment.

4. Clean up your pantry

Alright, so you like your meat too much to go vegan. We get it, we're the same. There are many other ways you can make a difference though (veg a few times a week, for example, but that's a story for another time). Make better choices in your snack selection, and make some space for The Daily Bar. Organic superfood fudge, coated in rich vegan dark chocolate, wrapped in fun home-compostable packaging. Need we say more?

See? Easy peasy!

With the mountain of products fighting for our limited cash, it's more important than ever to spend with intention. That's why we created Trauve - to make it easy and convenient for you to make good choices. If you want your hard-earned dollar to have a positive impact, you've come to the right place. If you feel a little guilty about the occasional takeaway coffee cup or not taking your banana peel home to compost, we've got you. We know you're trying, and that's a start.
