We’re in a cost of living crisis and it’s tough for many of us right now. The reality is that we’re all trying to find little ways to cut costs and reduce our spending where we can. 

One way to potentially do so is to swap to using more earth-conscious products (think refillable and reusable buys). We know what you’re thinking, they’re super spenny, right?

While it’s easy to assume that eco-friendly products are going to be more expensive than their traditional counterparts, that isn’t always the case. Often, they actually work out cheaper in the long run. If you’re smart about what you buy, you can actually save money and create more sustainable habits. 

Intrigued? We’ve rounded up a selection of all the best money-saving eco-buys that are worth trying, from laundry detergent to menstrual products and everything in between.
