    Eco-Friendly 2023

    Eco-Friendly 2023

    This January, we have listed our top tips to make your new year more eco-friendly. By simply swapping some of your day-to-day habits and purchases, you will be well on your way to a planet conscious 2023.

     


    It all starts at home.

    When cleaning after the holidays, our products are the ones to choose to stop the nasty chemicals from getting into the environment, impacting your health and the health of aquatic life. But what a great way to go that one step further and switch your cleaning equipment to compostable alternatives, like Seep's ones. Seep offer a range of compostable gloves, sponges and even bine liners to help you keep on top of your eco-cleaning and ensure that no micro-plastics go out into the environment.

    Planning a holiday?

    This year choose a conscious stay away with the planet in mind. Room2 by The Lamington group is the world's first hometel brand moving to fully net zero. We are delighted to support their business in becoming more sustainable by providing them with our planet-friendly range of cleaning products!


    Skin and Beauty

    Switch your skin and beauty products to products with natural ingredients and recycled packaging like the ones offered by Grumm! They even provide a razor cartridge recycling scheme, taking care of the recycling for you. From purifying Facial cleansing bars to Beard Wash bars, they have all your necessities to leave you fresh this January without compromising. 


    Dining out!

    We know this month's focus is mainly on your health, so why not treat yourself to delicious and healthy food at the Apricity restaurant in London? Apricity is a sustainable restaurant offering a conscious dining experience from its menu to its dishes; they have the environment in mind. 


    Giving back

    With the cost of living at an all-time low this January, families around the country are struggling to eat. So this January, why not give back to charities like The Felix Project? The Felix Project is a charity that distributes surplus food to vulnerable people in the UK and is a great way to give back this January.

    COP27- From What To How

    COP27- From What To How

    As COP27 ends, we reflect on the discussions surrounding the global climate change conference and what we can take away to tackle this global fight. The annual conference presents opportunities for all stakeholders, government leaders and activists to discuss strategies to reduce climate change. The international conference gives global leaders and shareholders the platform to discuss ways to minimise the effects of climate change and the potential impact it could have on the planet. 


    COP27 highlighted a solution-focused approach to minimise global surface temperature. Unlike the most recent Climate Week held in New York, which emphasised the ongoing global climate issues.

    Now climate change specialists are urging global leaders to develop strategies to mitigate the global warming effects on the planet. There is an emphasis on governments working with businesses to accomplish this. Connecting with countries globally to work together is paramount, and this needs to happen with everyone in the same room. 


    Previous COPs emphasised businesses were moving together at the same pace, working together to deliver environmental change. However, with global temperatures reaching record-breaking highs, the race is on, and there has been a shift to urge companies and countries to act as fast as they can.


    COP27 bought speculation concerning whether the COPs are the best way to direct positive action against climate change. One word that circled COP27 was ‘greenwashing’ (deceiving customers by falsely advertising natural, green and eco-friendly products). The growing demand for sustainable products in the market means that everyday brands are renaming, rebranding and repackaging products to keep up to date with customers’ needs, but without holding sustainable values at the core of the business. COP27 presented the opportunity to mitigate greenwashing and bring awareness to the issues at stake when deceiving consumers. The conference reminded us that we each have the responsibility to make conscious decisions, an integral part of our lives to make a significant change.

    We at Delphis Eco are proud to have sustainability at the forefront of our business values, and as a certified B-corp, we make all business decisions with the planet in mind.

    It's World Environment Day!

    It's World Environment Day!

    A time to stand back and truly assess how our everyday actions impact our environment and how best we can act to protect planet Earth, our home.

    This year’s theme is Air Pollution. With 9 out of 10 people worldwide breathing polluted air, it begs the question how we can reduce this no matter how big or small the scale. We can all be kinder to the planet:

    1. Switch to reusable coffee cups on your way to work so we can normalise the use of permanent coffee cups, rather than simply recycling disposable ones
    2. Swap plastic straws for metal straws and reduce the 425 million straws that make their way into landfill every day
    3. Bring your own bag for your supermarket shop to stop 2 million plastic bags being used every minute

    At Delphis, we pride ourselves on minimising the environmental impact of our products at every level of production, packaging and supply chain. We have a carbon saving of 70% thanks to our Post-Consumer Recycled plastic bottles, an industry first.

    In fact, it is estimated that if all milk bottles used in the UK were recycled, we would save an estimated 2.7 million tons of CO2. Think how much cleaner our air would be. Consider the power you have with every purchase. Let’s be the change our planet needs.
