Wool is a natural, renewable, biodegradable resource with so many incredible benefits to your health. Not only that, but wool also plays a huge role in the solution to our current global environmental crisis. With a low carbon footprint, ditching plastics and switching to wool allows us the opportunity to create better lives for generations to come.
Here are 5 things you can switch to start your journey to a plastic-free lifestyle:
1 - Wool dryer balls
Say goodbye to toxic dryer sheets. Wool dryer balls naturally prevent wrinkles, cut down static, and cut down drying time, which saves you time and money! Add a few drops of your favourite essential oils for added freshness. At Revolution Wool Company, our 100% wool dryer balls cut drying time down by 40-50%. Wools natural anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties inhibit the growth of bacteria, mould, and mildew. When you switch to wool dryer balls, your clothes will be clean, dry, and fresh, naturally!
2 - Wool sponges
Hate that dirty dishcloth smell? Why not ditch the traditional dishcloth and sponges for a wool sponge? With their natural anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties, wool sponges prevent the growth of bacteria, mould, and mildew. This means it stays cleaner than any other sponge on the market. But that’s not all. Our wool sponges can be used to wipe down all the surfaces in your home or even be used for your face and body!
3 - Wool bedding
Do you wake up in a sweat or need to grab an extra blanket through the night? Can’t find a pillow that fits just right? You need to make the switch to wool bedding. Not only is it temperature-regulating, but it also wicks away moisture, making sure you stay dry and comfortable all night long. Wool pillows provide comfort and structure, giving you the perfect amount of head and neck support. Plus, they’re hypoallergenic and naturally reduce allergens like dust mites. Just wait until your family starts sleeping better!
4 - Wool Mat
This can replace your traditional yoga mat or camping mat. It’s soft and adds extra cushion while standing or sitting. It adds an extra comfort layer, resists odours, and maintains optimal cleanliness so you can keep doing your favourite things!
5 - Felting Pad
Our pure wool felt pressing mat is ideal for quilting and sewing. When ironing on a 100% wool pressing pad, its natural properties hold heat, creating the crisp and clean edges you are looking for every time! Our felt pressing pad is perfect for all your creative projects.
Switching to a plastic-free lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated. As you begin replacing items in your home that you’re currently using, consider switching to wool. Not only will you help the environment, but you’ll be making changes that benefit your health!
