H&M is a cheap and accessible brand which is sustainable in nature.

I shop at The Source Bulk Foods. I don't have to worry about getting rid of packaging because there isn't any. I take my own cloth bags and other containers and I can buy exactly the amount I need.

I am a convert to Modibodi period underwear. I use them in combination with tampons on heavy days and alone on light days. I almost never use panty liners anymore. Brilliant!

I was so happy when i discovered MOTIPOD AUSTRALIA, Premium Stainless Steel Coffee Pod Capsules. It is actually mortifying to hear that over 50 billion single-use coffee capsules are thrown away every year? That amounts to over 400 million kilograms of plastic waste!
As a Coffee addict i go through 2 boxes of coffee a week (that's 40 coffee pods i use and throw away) and that's just me, 1 person. This is why Motipod reusable 100% stainless steel coffee capsules were created, as they will last a lifetime and people like me and billions of other coffee drinkers can stop polluting the planet.
The Motipod Platinum Bundle includes everything you need for pod packing perfection. Each bundle includes the Premium Stainless Steel Grinder, Tamper and your choice of pods. In just 3 easy steps, using your favourite coffee brand, all you need to did is Fill, Tamp and seal the Lid. Easy Peasy.

......So on that note, i am off to make myself a Coffee !

Genuinely curious: why not dump the pod machine altogether and get a real espresso? You are already doing all the manual prep anyway.

I love Goodwill Wines. They source the wine from small boutique wineries, put great labels on them and then donate 50% of the profits to a charity of your choice. Great company with an interesting story, oh and the wine is great.

I am really enjoying “Turtle” toothbrushes. They are bamboo toothbrushes which are more sustainable and feel good on your teeth. The only down side is I am finding the base is growing mould spores sitting in the toothbrush holder quite quickly.

Toyota are making EV’s with solid state batteries. Now the government just has to subsidise them a bit so that we can afford them and build charging stations. Australia is the worst responder to climate change in the Western world.

The most sustainable brand there is- are the things you already own. It is the consumerist idea of buying something new when you haven’t yet used up what you already have which is ultimately sustainable.

For personal care products, I trend towards brands like Sukin/Ecostore/The Body Shop/Thankyou which seem to be transparent about their sourcing and have had little ethical controversies. Ethical clothing is out of my price range, so my favourite sustainable & ethical clothing brand is my local op-shop.

I really love following the work that VivoBarefoot does - they're always bringing out new versions of their small-batch shoes as they make them more and more sustainable.

Adidas is an interesting brand to follow- they partnered with Parley and are making/designing cool sneakers with ocean plastic waste. I love my ‘clean classic’ adidas Stan Smiths.

While I think Sukin is a good step in the right direction for sustainable brand progression in relation to skin care. I believe nothing beats 'Aloe Vera' for sustainability. It sits in the garden, requires little water and after a couple of years provides the gel for my daily skin routine. BUY local - REDUCE freight and packaging.

Synergy sells green energy. Coles, where I shop sells odd bunch fruit rather than wasting product. There are many environmentally conscious garbage bags and wraps these days that break down such as Glad and Great Wrap. One is made from sugar cane. V2 is making plant based meat products to decrease meat consumption. Also, there's the plant based milks of which I buy Coles coconut milk and Tassal salmon.

Ozharvest and Secondbite are redistributing unwanted food from restaurants, supermarkets.
Ettitude produce bamboo bedding products and Nobody denim for denim sustainable clothing.

Patagonia is marketing themselves as repair rather than buy new
