We completely understand if Veganuary just isn't for you, but that doesn't mean you have to be completely in, or completely out. We also support anyone who wants to reduce their meat and dairy consumption and move towards a plant-based or meat-free diet.
To celebrate the start of Veganuary we introduce our recipe book so far. These are all of our vegan recipes posted since we launched in July 2019, they have all been made and eaten (and enjoyed) by one of our E.C.O. team. We hope you can use these to help you to complete Veganuary, or just try new ways of cooking foods you already love.

One super easy and economical eco-friendly switch you can make is changing your razor. The EPA estimates that over two billion razors are thrown away every year
The brass tacks of deciding to do something good for the environment are really, honestly, how much bloody effort it will take. Here’s a mischievous thought: What if the choices you make are not the product of careful examination of all the options and that you may make a bigger difference with less effort if you just checked the facts and your own lifestyle first?
Welcome to week two! How are you getting on? If you're late to the game check out our first week's article to introduce you to Plastic Free July. Plastic Free July is about getting rid of the single-use plastics that don't deserve a home in our lives.

Founded in 1976 The Body Shop was established and carried the ethos of being against animal testing and selling products that are made with natural, ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients
There are some things in the world of being an eco nerd that are easy to give up. Plastic toothbrushes (who cares), straws (self congratulatory smirk as you decline one) and plastic bags (linen totes are cuter anyway)
Face wipes are a necessity for most women and often end up being the quickest and most convenient go-to makeup remover but it turns out it’s a pretty dirty habit
