We know how hard it is to find unpackaged, plastic-free, reasonably priced bath and beauty items, which is why we thought we should make our own! Each soap is handmade in Exeter and each has a unique scent and different properties, from detoxifying to nourishing the skin, so you are bound to find the perfect plastic-free soap for a loved one this Christmas. Each soap comes in a cardboard box which can, of course, be recycled, and all of the labels are plastic-free.
Surprising amounts of jewellery use plastic in their manufacturing. However, with our plastic-free jewellery, you can choose an ethical alternative this Christmas. Handmade from brass, these clean, minimalist narrow cuffs make the perfect piece of plastic-free jewellery. These slim cuffs look beautiful with evening wear but work for the day, too. Not only are these pieces plastic-free, but they are also made by a Fair Trade social business in Kenya that provides opportunities for people who have physical disabilities.

Synthetic high-performance fabrics, such as nylon, polyester, rayon, acrylic or spandex, are now known to shed a lot of microplastic fibres, making them a major pollutant, especially when compared to cotton fabrics. This 100% organic cotton drop-shoulder shirt makes the perfect Christmas gift because it is as versatile as it is practical. And even better, it is plastic-free too, meaning no microplastics will be shed when you wash it.
Alison Cable Knit and Double Knit Hats
Available in a variety of colours, ready to match any outfit, these double and cable knit hats will be the perfect plastic-free Christmas gift to give to a loved one this winter. Lovingly handmade exclusively for Sancho's from 100% merino wool by a small group of volunteers from Age UK Exeter, the funds raised with the sale of each hat goes towards supporting Age UK Exeter projects.
