In recent years many consumers have become aware of the impact of the disposable culture we live in, and want to try and live a more sustainable lifestyle. A Slice of Green was designed to offer these consumers a stylish range of reusable products that can help them work towards this.
Starting with stainless steel lunchboxes, containers and tableware. Then, introducing organic cotton produce and shopping bags as well as facial wipes and cotton cloths for the home.
The range was then expanded to include home cleaning and personal care and these amazing, totally natural brushes were one of the first to be brought to market.
Everytime a new A Slice of Green product is bought to you the process is fully inclusive. From in house design to production, every stage is carefully managed to make sure sustainability and fair trade /ethical practices are strictly adhered to.
Because so much research and checking goes into the development of every A Slice of Green product- you can be assured that you are buying ethically and sustainably. For the A Slice of Green Organic cotton story please visit "here" and for the stainless steel journey "here". Be prepared to see the very beginnings of these products and the people who make them, beautiful sceneries, some pretty amazing origins!
