Welcome to Urban Green. We hope you enjoy browsing our selection of ethical products. We are big believers in making small changes that help the planet and our community. Our aim is to provide plastic-free, Zero Waste alternatives to everyday products. We often get the response ‘it isn’t possible’ but we think that every little bit helps to turn the tide on global plastic.
What can you tell us about your entered products? The products we selected are based around reducing platic waste and stopping single use waste item, such as cotton wool, single use masks and cling film. A lot of companies sell Bees wax but none sold the bread bags when I first started, though I have seen a number of companies now offering the products
