Happy new year!
This is the first monthly newsletter of 2020 (we skipped January because of the Christmas holidays) so there are a few things to update you on:
- New stockists
- New product
- Gift ideas for Valentine's Day.
If you haven't already visited Switzerland's first vegan cake shop, then you should!
Lola's kitchen is based in Zürich and not only sell delicious gluten-free, refined sugar-free, vegan cakes but they also have a concept store with various products including our soaps.
I love how new 'unpackaged' shops are opening all over Switzerland! It's promising to hear that people are becoming more aware of the plastic / waste problem and are choosing to shop more sustainably. Unverpackt Birseck will open it's doors in just a couple of weeks on the 14th February in Arlesheim (near Basel) and will stock a range of our soaps.
Switching your toothbrush from plastic to wood is one of the easiest #sustainableswaps to make. I tried many different types throughout my #zerowastejourney and have to say, it's my favourite. The shape of the handle is really nice to hold plus it makes the head easy to snap off at the end of it's life.
These wooden toothbrushes are locally made in Toggenburg, Switzerland.
Liebwerk donates 5% of its sales to the WWF Tropical Forestry Project.
Have you tried making your own toothpaste? You can find this recipe plus some others on a new page on our website under "Zero Waste Recipes"
Valentine's Day is in less than two weeks - Friday 14th February. Here are some gift ideas to help you celebrate the day in a sustainable way:
All orders will include free gift packaging (cotton ribbon / gift tag) and a Valentine's postcard. Just use the code "VALGIFT" when you place your order (available until 14th February).
