This week, Character Options joins us on UKMums.TV for the Eco Soft Toy takeover. If you’ve not already read-up on this beautifully soft, eco-conscious soft toy collection, you can do so from the takeover hub page. But first, here are some easy peasy ways to make your household that little bit greener!

Bring your own bags to the supermarket

Okay, so taking your own bags to the supermarket is becoming common practice for many in the UK. After all, plastic bags are no longer free! But by keeping some bags in the boot of your car you’ll really will be helping to protect the planet. Reduce and reuse!


Recycling helps to conserve natural resources, reduces pollution and saves energy. And yes, the process does involve sorting through and cleaning up your rubbish, but it’s such an important step to helping to leave behind a thriving environment for future generations to come.

Donate to charity or sell your unwanted goods online

Giving your unwanted clothes and goods a second life will help to cut your carbon footprint. And it’s so easy too! Most people will have a local charity shop. Or, if you’d like to make a bit of extra cash, there’s always the likes of eBay and Vinted!

Avoid bottled water

Tap water is generally clean and safe to drink in the UK and whilst bottled water may be more convenient at times, it is not only expensive but also causes unnecessary plastic waste. Instead, invest in a reusable water bottle and take it with you wherever you go!

Make more eco-conscious purchasing decisions

When you shop, keep your eye out for minimal or recyclable packaging, and be sure to also hunt for eco-conscious options when it comes to the items themselves – be it clothing made from recycled materials or toys made from plastic bottles (like the Eco Soft Toy range from Character Options!).
