We are inspired by our love of the natural world, our two children and the incredible human being that is Sir David Attenborough.
Launched in 2018 and based in the UK, Plastic Free Home is an online community, with more than 42,000 followers in over 20 countries. Our aim is to simply to seek and share ideas on how we can all make a difference and give our planet a helping hand, by loving and looking after the natural world, consuming less and living more sustainably.
Alongside our website and growing Facebook page, we regularly appear in a range of national and regional publications, as well as on regional BBC Radio, and are invited by schools, charities and community groups to speak on the subject. From time to time we also contribute guest blogs, having featured on websites ranging from that of a national real estate agent to a major games manufacturer.
We always give our time for free but on occasion, if something is gifted to us or we receive any form of ‘reward‘ from a brand we will always let you know. And we will donate the amount received to nature and wildlife conservation charities here in the UK, our favourites including The Woodland Trust, The RSPB, The National Trust, The National Forest and The Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT).
Thank you for listening. And, more importantly, for caring.
