New research funded by the Dutch National Organisation for Health Research and Development and Common Seas, shows that microplastic is present in human blood. The implications of this are terrifying.
“We have a right to know what all this plastic is doing to our bodies.” ~Jo Royle, founder of the charity Common Seas.

Covid and convenience shopping has wreaked havoc through the zero waste community with many stores finding that they just aren’t getting the footfall they need to keep up with the ever-rising costs of running an independent business.

Whilst Organic is a term that is largely linked to farming and food, it’s a subject that we are passionate about at Truthpaste HQ. We actively look for ingredients that are certified organic to go in our award-winning formula.
Organic farming is so much more than just ‘no pesticides’. This carefully designed method of farming food sustains soils, biodiversity, ecosystems and people.

With the devastating effects right on our doorstep, we see the clear need for social change. We need to take responsibility urgently, as individuals and as a business to be proactive about making that change a reality.
The benefits of leading the way to a more sustainable and eco conscious business extend the world over, whilst bringing us together on a local level, as a community.

The alarming lack of transparency around recycling practices means that well-meaning households are inadvertently guilty of contamination. WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) report that in the last year, around 525,000 tonnes of recycling was rejected due to contamination.
What is the cost to the environment and the councils, and what can we all do to reduce recycling contamination?

Choosing plastic-free products are a great way of reducing your waste. Its also good to choose to buy bulk when possible (part of the reason we discontinued our smaller jars).
We look at the benefits of glass, and the advantages of recycling it.

We plant trees to restore ecosystems and livelihoods whilst increasing protection against the extremes of climate change in multiple regions of the tropical forest belt. We do this in ways that recreate and restore natural forest ecosystems using indigenous species, fostering local knowledge and skills, and promoting women's participation. We strive to do it intelligently, appropriately, respectfully and successfully.
