SELFRIDGES LAUNCHES SUSTAINABLE HOMEWARE STORE

Selfridges launches a sustainable solutions store as part of Project Earth, featuring a re-fill station, a vintage homeware pop-up, and over 500 new homeware brands helping to reduce waste, recycle and reinvent.

As part of Project Earth, Selfridges has launched The Solutions Store – a dedicated sustainable store with over 300 products. Customers will discover an exclusive refill station with eco-clothing detergents and mists from The Lab Co as well as new and exclusive products all cleverly designed to provide sustainable solutions for the kitchen, bathroom and everyday tasks.

Reducing Waste:

The exclusive Lab Co.refill station will allow customers to buy and refill their Lab Co bottles with their choice of the brand’s clothing care products. The Lab Co. use all-natural plant derived and biodegradable ingredients that care for clothing, ensuring they last for as long as possible whilst reducing waste in single-use items and packaging. The range also includes clothing mists designed to refresh clothes in between washes. (Refills from £5).

Sustainable solutions for cleaning:

With environmental issues posed by many household products such as plastic waste and toxic chemicals entering the water system, NEAT has found a solution by creating a long-lasting spray bottle made from aluminium. Simply add a little of their natural concentrated formulas and top up with water to create an effective and eco-friendly cleaning product.

Re-useable food bags and tea bags:

Made with all organic cotton, The Organic Company’s range provides an easy solution to the plastic waste created by clingfilm and other single-use every-day items. The collection includes tea towels, cotton bags for food storage and re-usable cotton tea bags, a sustainable alternative to commercial tea bags made from single use plastic. Once used, empty, wash (or rinse), and re-use.

Eco-friendly water filters

Phox Water’s design includes a water filter that is refilled with carbon granules that gradually dissolve with use. When the filter is empty, customers can simply buy a new packet of granules (presented in a bio-degradable paper sachet) to top up their filter.

Coffee cups made from coffee waste:

HuskeeCup’s reusable cup and lid are made from used coffee husks which would otherwise be thrown away. The cup is BPA-free and dishwasher safe and the design will keep hot drinks hotter for longer and won’t scold hands.
