Christmas 2020 Advent Calendar Day 7 – ReRoot

Categories: Novelty, Health & Personal Care, Household Goods, Food

Most of us are looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment and move towards a more effective “zero-waste” lifestyle, or at least as close to that as we can get. ReRoot is a welcoming family-run, eco-friendly, zero waste shop which aims to help all of us do just that.  

They specialise in a variety of low impact and sustainable everyday products from cleaning products and kitchen items to food and self-care items. They’re one of my absolute go-to shops for a large amount of my “everyday” items. 

LOR – S2 Shampoo

XMAS Advent - ReRoot 1_2

Price: €17.50

The LOR range, of which this shampoo is part, are by far my favourite products! They are made with natural ingredients and created by a fellow Malteser, Christina. Besides the fact that they come in stylish looking glass bottles, there will eventually be the option to refill them! My hair has never felt and remained so clean for so long! 

UpCircle Facial Moisturiser

XMAS Advent - ReRoot 2

Price: €26

A moisturiser like no other! Although made with natural and gentle ingredients, it is super effective on the skin, leaving it feeling well nourished. What’s more, it is obviously plastic-free, cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable! 

Tried, tested and approved!

Scrubbies – Biodegradable Dish Sponge (pack of 2)

XMAS Advent - ReRoot 3

Price: €8

These cute, colourful and 100% biodegradable and compostable cleaning pads are an easy way to reduce microplastics from going down the drain. They are made with 100% organic cotton and printed with bright-coloured eco dye! I also love the fact that they are extremely durable and can easily be thrown into the washing machine for a good clean! Was an easy swap in the kitchen! 

OceanSaver Cleaner Refill Drops

XMAS Advent - ReRoot 4

Price: €2.10

OK, so this isn’t a single product per se, but all of them together at €2.10 per sachet would work towards replacing all your home cleaning products so I couldn’t not add them in. 

These small and powerful capsules are amazingly safe and powerful cleaning products for your whole home. Simply add the small pod to 750ml of water and voilà, you have an extremely effective and eco-friendly cleaner! Not only are they biodegradable, vegan and cruelty free, they also smell great! 

These would be ideal to stick in with a hamper of other eco-friendly inspired products for your environmentally-conscious friends and family. 

Facial Pads (20 pack)

XMAS Advent - ReRoot 5

Price: €16.75

I haven’t touched face wipes or disposable cotton wool ever since trying these pads out. Once dirty, I simply stick them in the washing machine and reuse! 

Like the refill drops mentioned previously, these would also be an ideal hamper or stocking filler for your eco-warrior loved ones.
