Natural first aid is an eco home essential! Everyone needs that natural first aid box that comes to the rescue when we need a little bit of TLC.
Unlike eco-friendly, sustainable, natural first aid, commercial and conventional first aid products are mostly made with chemicals and plastic. These may help treat your ailments but they can have a negative impact on the environment around us. Plasters although they may seem harmless are mostly made of plastic that can not always be recycled, plus they do not biodegrade in a natural environment.
It is important to reduce the use of single-use plastic in order to live a more eco-friendly, sustainable life. Did you know? Plastic can take hundreds of years to biodegrade, when it does start to eventually break down it releases toxins and microplastics which can be harmful to the surrounding environment. Not only that but microplastics can work their way into waterways and pose a significant risk to aquatic life.
At Peace With The Wild, we stock natural first aid such as eco-friendly, natural, bamboo plasters by Patch that are made from bamboo fibres. What's great is that they are biodegradable and compostable so you can tend to your cuts, bruises, burns and scratches the plastic free way! But it is not just plastic that is damaging to our planet, chemicals are too.
Chemicals can be harsh on the skin resulting in itchiness, redness and allergic reactions. They also can be harmful to aquatic life, and damaging to the soil, water and air quality! By cutting out these chemicals and replacing them with natural, vegan, cruelty free and chemical free ingredients you can still get effective natural first aid but just without the nasties - what's not to love?
At Peace With The Wild, all our sustainable, eco friendly, natural first aid products have been hand-picked and carefully selected for their natural, vegan, cruelty free, plastic free and eco credentials. All ethically and sustainably sourced, our natural first aid products are not just great for your health and effective at treating ailments, they are also kind to our planet.
