Welcome to Set Me Free, a shop for zero waste families
Did you know that currently in the UK about eight million disposable nappies are thrown away each day, which accounts for about three percent of our household waste? Were you aware that disposable nappies take 500 years to decompose? Similarly, wet wipes, one of parents favourites, are behind 93% of blockages in UK sewers. Wet wipes, which contain plastic, slowly break down into microplastics that are then ingested by marine life, with deadly consequences.
Being a mother and a person with great passion towards animals, I find that thought terrifying. Whilst looking after our most precious ones, we are damaging the world that our children will grow up in, damaging the wildlife we hope them to enjoy.
However, we have the choice to do something about it and there are easy ways to start.
Set Me Free began with the aim to help mothers raise their children with care towards the environment and convenience to the mother. We aim to bring to you the best alternatives to disposable items from companies whose values we support and introduce you to individuals and alternative products that are out there. It’s always better knowing that there are other people on a similar journey and change towards low impact living is not that hard.
