Plastic-free July is a global movement to reduce plastic pollution, so that is why this month we have created our Eco-friendly July box. We know that it is near impossible for households to remove all plastic waste at the moment but we are committed to supporting NZ businesses that share our values and are doing their part. So this month's box is all about celebrating NZ businesses that support plastic-free or recyclable packaging.
Miabelle products are always in Eco-friendly packaging and these amazing shampoo and conditioner bars are no different. Made with aloe vera, shea butter, jojoba oil, flower extracts and essential oils that will nourish and hydrate your hair naturally. These salon professional bars last up to 80 washes if stored correctly (which is up to 3 times longer than ordinary products) as well as leaving your hair feeling and smelling incredible. Your hair is going to thank you for making the change from chemical-rich products to these nourishing essential oils and plant extracts.
Nudi point essential oil roll-ons have showcased in previous boxes and that is because we always get amazing feedback about them. When Blair from Nudi point told me he had an exciting new essential oil that he had just made, called Immunity, we just knew that we had to include it in one of our boxes. So Blair has turned his new immunity essential oil into a roll-on just for the MyTreat customers! This is the last essential blend roll on for 2020 so don't miss out on the refreshing aromas of Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus and Rosemary, proven to stimulate the immune system by increasing blood and lymph circulation.
Anyone that has had an Ahhh cosmetic product before will know that they not only smell delightful but are also great for your skin. With these solid sugar soap bars, you can scrub away dead skin cells and rinse away the day. Each subscription box will include either a "Peach Smoothie" or "Raspberry & Vanilla" bar made with coconut oil, cane sugar and vitamins to exfoliate, soften and hydrate your skin naturally. These beauties are packaged in just a cardboard box because like Sophie from Ahh quotes "We don't need a hand full of people doing zero waste. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly".
With Winter in full swing now, colds and sniffles don't come in short supply, so that is why we are including one of the delicious Quarterpast syrups in every box to help heal and boost your immunity. Not only do they taste divine, they are also completely natural with no artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners. Each box will include either one of the "Gold Kiwi, Turmeric and Ginger" or the Hibiscus, Ginger and Manuka Honey flavours. These new syrups are made with pure fruit extracts so you can boil the jug, sit back and relax whist enjoy your nutritious cuppa.
Plastic-free July seemed like the perfect month to introduce you to our very own MyTreat bamboo toothbrushes. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and can grow up to 1-4 inches a day, making it the number one renewable resource in the world. According to consumer NZ, we send about 287,640kg of plastic toothbrushes to the landfill every year just in NZ alone and that doesn’t include the packaging. This is why it is so important for everyone to start making conscious decisions and by spreading the word about changing from plastic to bamboo toothbrushes is a great start.
