Putting the straws in the dishwasher is okay, but use a low temperature – over time the straws may start to lose their colour so you are better off using the hand cleaning brush provided.
Introducing Bare Kind’s bamboo socks, a cosy, cute and conscious addition to your sock drawer.
10% of profits from these socks go to wildlife charities matched up with the animal prints on them. So the bumblebee socks raise money for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust while the turtle socks raise money for the Turtle Foundation.
The socks are made at a family-run factory in Istanbul, where ethical and sustainable standards are tip-top. Dyes are non-toxic, socks are shipped by lorry rather than plane where possible, factory workers must be 18 or over – practices like this are the norm there.
These values are taken further by Bare Kind, who are working on a project to offset all their past emissions and use recyclable packaging.
The Bare Kind range includes more than the bamboo socks too. Pick from waste-saving, planet-friendly items such as reusable metal straws and 100% recycled t-shirts and tote bags made from plastic bottles.
