To save our planet and ourselves, we need to change our purchasing behaviour. When we change, manufacturers will change their production methods. This will cause a snow-ball effect that will make more products eco-friendly. This page lists products and ideas to encourage this change. From cardboard furniture and solar panels to energy saving plugs and clothes dryers. If you would like to include a product on this page please send the link or an email to info@bootkidz.co.uk.
