Good Bubble Low Res 145

Here at Good Bubble we’re all about being kind. Kind to our skin, kind to each other and kind to our planet.

During 2018 we were faced with some pretty shocking pictures of the level of plastics in our oceans. Now that it’s a new year, when better to start making positive changes to keep the earth a safe place for our kids, and their kids…

Here are a few simple steps we can all do to help protect our planet:

1. Say no to plastic straws 

We use millions of these every day which then get dumped - they are sucking the life out of our oceans. So, let’s ditch the straws and save the seahorses!

2. Reuse bags 

Did you know it can take up to 1000 years for a plastic bag to degrade? By reusing our shopping bags, we’re creating less demand which will help to benefit our lovely planet.

 3. Use refillable bottles 

Whether it’s a water bottle or your coffee cup. Around seven million coffee cups are thrown away every day in the UK alone! Using refillable bottles not only helps the planet but also your wallet – many coffee shops give a discount if you bring in your own cup. Win, win.

There’s still so much to be done to protect our planet for future generations, but here are a few of the things we’re doing at Good Bubble to be kinder to the planet and to others:

1. 50% recycled packaging

Last year we launched our bottles made with PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) which contain 50% recycled plastic. The plastic may have previously been used as milk bottles, yoghurt pots or even a child’s toy in a former life. This year will see our entire range make this transition and we might even have a brand new sustainable range up our sleeves…

2. Made in the UK 

Born and bred at a small, family factory in Manchester, we are extremely proud that all of our bubbly goodies are produced and packaged in the amazing North of England. Flying the flag for the UK economy and helping to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum makes us very proud indeed.

 3. Cruelty free and vegan friendly

Testing on animals is a big no-no at GB! All of our products are Leaping Bunny accredited meaning that neither our products or their ingredients are tested on animals or contain animal derivatives.
