Plastic Free July is an initiative that started in 2011. It has become a global movement that empowers millions of people to be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities

This campaign gives us all an opportunity to ‘say no’ to single-use plastics, find alternatives and reduce plastic waste.

You can start out small and pick one disposable item to avoid, like single-use plastic straws, coffee cups, grocery bags, or water bottles.

Another great way is to swap your single-use plastic shower gel for bar soap.

Green Tea & Lime Cream Soap –  Added organic essential oils and organic green tea extract give this soap a wonderfully fresh fragrance while possessing potent antioxidant, anti inflammatory and skin smoothing properties.

These soap bars create a rich and creamy lather and smell lovely. I’m not a fan of most bars as they really dry out my skin, leaving it feeling tight and uncomfortable.

Thankfully these soap bars leave my skin cleansed without drying out my skin. My skin feels nice and soft. It also doesn’t leave that unpleasant residue you get from most soap bars that leave your skin tacky.

I absolutely love these soap bars. They are excellent value for money and long-lasting.
