#brightFuture Challenge with Unilever

We are all about making the world a better place in our house. We are very passionate about Deki and their work, we’re keen to help and give in any way we can, and we are also very aware of environmental issues and constantly strive to create a #brightFuture.
For us, it has always been essential to lessen the waste in the world, so recycling and cutting back on plastics is a huge thing we are currently working on. We keep quite a lot of card and containers for our junk modelling days, and we re-use a lot of tubs and tins for storage. We also keep our heating off from March-October, Warren buys LED energy saving bulbs for every room in the house, we never leave the tap to run during teeth brushing time and we encourage the kiddies to shower to decrease bath usage.
We also wash our laundry on a fairly short cycle at 30 degrees, and with Persil our clothes came out smelling beautiful and incredibly clean. This means our children can follow our example of saving water, cutting back on high temperature washing whilst also feeling confident in their gorgeously washed clothes! Persil are currently working with UNICEF to offer more educational opportunities in certain parts of the world. George and Molly are very aware of the impact of waste on the world, and I think this is something we’re constantly learning about and improving on, together as a family.

I absolutely love that Domestos has promised to make toilets more accessible to 25 million people by 2020, which will in turn defend against preventable diseases. I don’t know where I’d be without Domestos for my bathroom, in particular, keeping our toilet sanitised and safe for my children. Molly is particularly good at productive hand-washing, often correcting us on the right way to keep our hands clean!
Unilever are also part of the Dove team and focusing on something very close to my heart for the future of our children; self esteem. The Dove Self-Esteem Project has helped more than 19 million lives, and I can only hope that our children already have and develop a strength towards their appearance. We live in a world of negativity and judgement, and I am hopeful that my children will be fair, honest, non-judgemental and most importantly, proud of who they are and what they look like.

    Hello! Confidence and self-belief are a very big challenge for me, as I support family members with severe anxiety and OCD. I am determined that my girls grow up to be confident and assertive throughout their lives, so that we can continue our quest for environmentally friendly living. Great to meet you via the Britmums and Unilever challenge! 🙂

    I love the Unilever project, it proves that it’s not just the little guys that are trying to make a difference. When a big company like Unilever gets behind something you know they’ll make a change.
    I have made small changes too, from recycling our cardboard to swapping a large car for a more efficient one. 🙂

      It’s the little things that count, and I think car changes are huge- go you!
