5 Reasons Why I'll Always Shop At The Natural Co.

5 Reasons Why I'll Always Shop At The Natural Co.

You may think you care A LOT about the planet, but you haven’t yet met Rebecca. Founder of an online eco store I frequent, The Natural Co., Rebecca will give you a run for your money when it comes to caring about the planet. Until you worry about doing enough for the earth while you swing a sleep-less baby on your hip, juggle a toddler, compost (among many other things), food shop low waste AND run an eco store… Rebecca will always take the cake. She’s an inspiration without knowing it, and she’s created a store that helps anyone and everyone care for the planet (nearly) just as much as her.

I was first introduced to The Natural Co. early 2018. I’ve since used the skincare travel kit (see review here), and bought a few things for around the house that I use daily.

So you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about when I say The Natural Co. is a site you need to save on your bookmark tool bar, here are 5 reasons why I’ll always shop at The Natural Co.

1.They actually give a fig

To reiterate on my first point: they really do care. There’s no greenwashing, no green-hype or fancy fluff so you can ‘get on trend’ with living green because the cool kids said it’s cool. The Natural Co. are legit. It gives me great pleasure to hear when a friend or reader purchases from The Natural Co., because buying from The Natural Co. means they’ll stick around. I’d much prefer for a company who gives a fig to hang around than the ones who do not.

2.Your packages are shipped responsibly

Take it from someone who has received several The Natural Co. orders: your order will arrive plastic free, as simplistic as possible, and Rebecca will even drop it off to you if you’re local! The Natural Co. will go the extra mile to reduce both packaging and air miles when it comes to getting your awesome goodies to you. I’m talking paper boxes, padding, and even paper tape.

3.Guaranteed quality

The Natural Co. may be small, but they redefine quality over quantity. My tea strainer works just as well as it did on the first day I used it, my toilet brush too. I’ve bought a few gifts from The Natural Co., and still have friends and family mention the products I gave!

My daily routine looks like this.

4.There’s an awesome human & a screaming baby behind your order

Supporting The Natural Co. literally means Rebecca will grin and perhaps even do a little dance when your order comes through! Every order means a lot to her, not only because she can keep on keeping on, but because you’re reducing your waste and moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle. That makes her stoked: and gives her fuel to continue giving you the best of the best while raising two mini eco-warriors.

5.Mother nature needs this

I know I don’t need to bore you with more negative news about our climate crisis, but just know that it’s real. We don’t have the option to keep on shopping without considering our impact on the planet. We don’t have time to grab a takeaway coffee cup: our earth will not continue to cope under the current pressure and demands. For us to continue living happily on this planet, we must lessen our impact. That starts with using reusables, and purchasing products that are made well and help you practice sustainable choices. It starts at The Natural Co.

Ladies & Gents: My Toilet Brush. It’s wet at the bottom, because I just cleaned my toilet #domesticated. I found the black pot under my house (scavenge for a pot from a second hand shop that fits).

As a rule, I only work with brands I love, use, and can whole heartedly back. I send the brand a large list of questions to answer first, and trial the product properly before saying yes to anything. This is a sponsored blog (I can't pay my electricity bill with free products), but 100% my own words, photos, and opinion.
