My name is Coral, I am 25 years old and I used to be a keen traveller. I was fortunate enough to visit so many countries and to see the world with all of its glory.
Whilst travelling, what shocked me the most was how much rubbish we leave on our earth. I noticed a comparison between how much I use single-use plastic daily in the UK compared to other people in other countries. I began to explore how I could reduce my plastic use. My first alternative was purchasing a shampoo bar, rather than a plastic bottle of shampoo and the rest was history!
After my travels, and learning as much as I could about trying a plastic-free lifestyle. I began encouraging and educating my friends to try alternatives. They weren't aware of how large the problem was with plastic use or how good the alternative products to plastic were. It made me wonder how many other people would make the change if they had the right information and knew what products to try?
My business idea is to send a subscription box monthly to people who are interested in trialling plastic-free products. I know there may be competitors but I want my business to stand out and be different amongst the others. I want my business to feel like a community, where we all can post our eco journeys, recommend suggestions to each other and guide each other on how to look after our earth a little bit better.
