Helping people with small changes that can make a big difference to both their health and the environment is the driving force behind Tomorrow’s Earth, a store specialising in home and beauty products that are toxin and cruelty free, zero waste and environmentally friendly.
Opened by Evie Roycroft in 2020, here you will find everything from home and beauty items, including a bulk refill station, as well as practical items such as Ever Eco insulated mugs, tumblers and travel cutlery. There is also a range of raw ingredients so you can make your own products.
“Using these products is very natural to me because it’s how I was brought up, but it’s definitely becoming more mainstream. People are a lot more aware of where things come from, what is in them, and that some things are better and safer than others. People are connecting the dots,” Evie said.
It can be a daunting prospect to make the switch to eco-friendly and non-toxic products.
“I always tell people it’s a slow process. It’s not all or nothing, it’s not about perfection. It’s a lot of trial and error,” Evie said.
“The bathroom or kitchen is a great place to start. When you run out of something, have a look around at different options. Consider refilling the container you already have. Just throwing everything out will be overwhelming.”
To help people along their eco-product journey, Tomorrow’s Earth’s social pages are a fountain of knowledge about ingredients and products that can be easily swapped. The store is also a collection point for Terracycle, who turn normally un-recyclable products into new products.
