Earth Conscious Moisturising Body Bar

Earth Conscious Moisturising Body Bar

We are so very excited to announce the release of the Earth Conscious Moisturising Body Bar! We know we are renowned for our Natural Deodorant Range so it's great to finally bring out another plastic free natural product to sit alongside our Baby Balm in the non-deodorant category! 

What is the Body Bar?

The same ergonomic shape as the Bare Bar Deodorant and the same compact sized recyclable cardboard box, however, it's not a deodorant! Curved and easy to hold, the Body Bar will glide across the skin moisturising as it goes. 

 

A little bit of Luxury goes a long way

The solid moisturising body bar is handmade here on the Isle of Wight. We have chosen a blend of high quality organic cold pressed oils full of antioxidants, essential fatty acids and rich in Vitamin C and A to take care of your skin. Each bar will give around 80g of product and as always, a little goes a long way.

It Smells Divine. 

The pure strong chocolate aroma that comes from the cocoa butter makes hand producing this bar quite the task for anyone who cannot resist chocolate, it really does make the mouth water! The final product still gives a hint of the mouth watering cocoa butter but with the refreshing fruity lemon tones of May Chang.

 

It's Great For

It's a lovely treat and works particularly well on freshly showered damp skin. Great for peri-menopause / menopause dry itchy skin, after shaving body hair helping to lubricate and nourish skin. Use on elbows, feet, hands, all over.

 

Refillable Storage Tin

Available separately we have a refillable tin just the perfect fit for your Body Bar or your Bare Bar should you feel like you need extra storage or something to travel with.

It's ALL GOOD

The usual Earth Conscious Ethics and credentials remain in place. All of our products are Cruelty Free, Vegan Friendly, Plastic Free and Recyclable. They are all handmade using quality ingredients, organic wherever possible which is mostly all of them and even Fairtrade where applicable too. Each product is designed from the less is more ethos. We keep it simple, nothing that is not necessary!

And of course, 10p from the sale of every Bar goes to our long term charity of choice in the UK, Marine Conservation Society for the protection of our seas, shores, and wildlife.

Planning a Plastic Free Picnic

Planning a Plastic Free Picnic

It's picnic season! To be honest, we have plastic free picnics all year around here on the Isle of Wight, just with a few more layers in the cooler months.

However, during the month of #PlasticFreeJuly, we are thinking more about sharing some plastic-free picnic ideas, and doubling our donations from 10p a purchase to 20p a purchase as the Marine Conservation Society folks ask us all to take the #PlasticChallenge.

Here at Earth Conscious, we have now donated more than £20,000 to the Marine Conservation Society, well, YOU our customers have with every purchase you make (click to shop here)

We know that with busy work and families, it can seem hard to make the switch to plastic-free, but we're here to reassure you that it is easier than you think!

As July sees us head into the summer holidays, we thought we'd talk about the great British picnic. Specifically how you can have a plastic-free picnic!

Plastic-Free Picnics - Re-usables

eco sandwich wrap

Most of us probably have a variety of re-usable bottles and cups. But what about other re-usables to help reduce our single use plastic? Wrapping sandwiches or other snacks can be achieved without clingfilm, if you opt for a reusable food wrap. We think Vegan food wraps are a great addition to your picnic kit. They are surprisingly simple to use (and make, if you've time), and are actually easier than fighting with the clingfilm roll when trying to make a packed lunch anyway.

Sandwich boxes to pack your picnic food, consider using the old ice cream tub or sweets tin, we think it's great to re-purpose something which would otherwise end up in landfill.

Think outside the (plastic) box

Supermarket 'Picnic food' seems to be packaged in huge amounts of single use plastic. Packed for "ease" with little regard for the waste created. So, can you enjoy these treats without the plastic? Save money and avoid waste by making your own treats. We are huge fans of baking a huge batch of easy Exceedingly Vegan sausage rolls, then freezing some ready to quickly prepare for packed lunches or a picnic. Remember, dips (thank you Rebel Recipes for this simple hummus recipe) are easy to make too, and accompanying crudités (that's chopped carrots to you and me) just need a couple of ice cubes packed with them to keep them fresh.

Plastic-Free Treats

Two Farmers compostable crisp packaging

Plastic-Free picnics do require a little planning. You may be short of time to bake your own treats - which is one of the easiest ways to save on plastic waste. So, do remember there are plastic-free family friendly snacks which you can purchase almost guilt free.

Stoats Flapjacks are wrapped in biodegradable NatureFlex film, which, like our deodorant sticks, you can add to your home composting. Two Farmers crisps, come in compostable packets or large 'family-sized' tins which can be reused (as picnic boxes!) or recycled. Keeping your picnic plastic-free when you're time limited.

 

Stay in the shade

Recycled plastic bottles picnic rug

If you are planning a plastic free picnic, and the sun is shining - stay in the shade!  We are lucky enough to live close to the beach here on the Isle of Wight, we pack a blanket (these picnic rugs from Weaver and Green are made from recycled plastic bottles) and take a beach umbrella with us, but if you are going 'big' how about 'borrowing' a gazebo from Library of Things.

Baby Balm

If however, you are unfortunate enough to suffer a little sunburn on your picnic, a generous layer of Earth Conscious Baby Balm will soothe the soreness and reduce the peeling.

Whatever you do, have fun - make the most of your time on this planet, and, it goes without saying, take your rubbish home with you :)
