Our Zero Waste Survival Kit has everything you need to significantly reduce your plastic waste.
1 hemp shopping bag
5 pack of recycled plastic produce bags (3 large & 2 small)
1 reusable coffee cup
1 reusable fold-up straw (not suitable for children under 3 years)
Hemp Shopping Bag
Our reusable shopping bags are made out of hemp. Hemp is one of the most sustainable resources on the planet because it requires little to no pesticides or irrigation to grow, unlike cotton.
Our bags are very durable and will last you many years. When the time comes for its end-of-life disposal, our hemp bags will decompose back into the Earth (after stainless steel buttons have been removed for recycling).
Our bags nicely fold up into a compact design so you can pop them into your glovebox or carry bag.
If every New Zealander used a Soul Family shopping bag, we’re helping avoid 1 billion plastic bags from ending up in landfill/the environment.
5 Pack Produce Bags
Our produce bags are made out of recycled plastic bottles. Each pack is made out of approximately 50 plastic bottles. We have taken post-consumer waste and turned it into something useful.
Each pack includes:
3 large (35cm x 30cm)
2 small (25cm x 30cm)
We've made these super lightweight so that you don't have to worry about the inconvenience of tare weights when your out shopping. We even designed them without a plastic toggle (like most produce bags) to reduce the plastic components!
These produce bags can also double as milk strain bags e.g. non-dairy milk, or for larger bulk bin items e.g. nuts, lollies, dried fruits, grains.
We have double-stitched our bags to ensure they last you a very long time.
Reusable Coffee Cup
Our reusable cups are designed to last you for life. In the rare case that it can't handle your caffeine fix, the whole cup can be easily recycled in New Zealand.
The cup fits a large barista size and has two measurement lines for small and medium. No need for a sleeve or double cup as the ridges on the outside will keep you from getting burnt!
By using a reusable cup you are helping New Zealand avoid sending 800,000 disposable coffee cups to landfill each day.
Ps: Don’t be fooled by compostable cups either, if they accidentally end up in a landfill they won’t break down properly.
Fold-Up Straw (not suitable for children under 3 years due to small parts)
Our straws are made out of stainless steel and medical-grade TPE and the case is made out of recycled ABS plastic.
The compact case makes it easy to transport your straw with you when you’re out and about. The squeegee cleaner is made out of stainless steel and food-grade silicone and nicely fits in the case.
Check out the demo video to see how to clean your Soul Family straw.
When the time comes for its end-of-life disposal the stainless steel and plastic case can be recycled and the TPE tube can be repurposed or disposed of in a landfill.
If every New Zealander used a Soul Family straw, we’re helping avoid 200 million plastic straws from ending up in landfill/the environment.
