Time to get environmentally friendly with Harmless House

Tuesday, 3 April 2012

Harmless HouseWe are very excited to have discovered Harmless House and their range of high-quality, ethically sourced products. From vegan floss to natural oral care products you can now keep your carbon footprint even lower.

Harmless House says: The Environmental Toothbrush is made from one of the fastest growing bamboos in the world that requires the least amount of water and is NOT the type pandas eat. Both the toothbrush and the packaging are 100% biodegradable and can go straight onto your compost heap or garden when you’re finished with them. The toothbrush comes in three sizes, to fit the whole family, Adult Medium, Adult Soft and Child Soft.

The VeganFloss has a natural cinnamon flavour and contains no mint, which makes it suitable for people practicing homeopathy. It is completely free of animal source ingredients and is cruelty-free.

BeautySouthAfrica.com got to be environmentally friendly and tried out the Environmental Toothbrush and the VeganFloss.

BeautySouthAfrica.com says: The Environmental Toothbrush is really a great product and a brilliant way to do your bit for our earth. It came in a biodegradable brown box and wrapper. The wooden-looking brush performed just like a plastic toothbrush. It was soft and comfortable but in the back of my mind I knew I was doing my bit for the environment, so there was an added feeling of smugness. Clean and virtuous! When my bamboo toothbrush is finished, I will simply chuck into the garden, as it is 100% biodegradable.

The VeganFloss felt like any other floss, which to me means a lot. Sometimes eco-friendly products can have somewhat odd smells and flavours. This animal friendly floss had a nice taste of cinnamon. It is packaged in a carboard pack so can be recycled.

    I was lucky enough to win this prize. Thank You! I love the toothbrush, floss and the bar soap but was not too mad about the fragrance of the shampoo & body wash and the tooth powder tastes like your brushing your teeth with soap.
