About me

Hi, I'm Hilly and I hate plastic.

In 2018 I decided to have a look around my bathroom and was horrified at just how much single use plastic I was using.  It's in everything.  I decided  enough was enough and started making small, but permanent changes to the products I was using with REALISTIC alternatives.  

During the "trials" I suffered my fair share of bad hair days, received more than enough nicks when transitioning to a safety razor and had a few less than pleasant moments when it came to the dreaded womb monsters.  But I persisted.  I shared my findings with friends and family and got some great support as well as top tips for other changes.  This got me thinking how I could make more of a difference and so Switch and Ditch was born.

I've personally tested all of the products on this site and will only sell ones that I'm happy to use myself.  In fact my bathroom looks like the Switch and Ditch stock room.  I've done my best to ensure everything is plastic free before it reaches Switch and Ditch's headquarters and of course don't use any plastic in of my packaging.  If things can be more eco-friendly than just plastic free then that's an absolute bonus too and so my range includes a lot of  vegan friendly products that are responsibly sourced.

Now that my bathroom is plastic free I'm tackling other areas of my life and hope to bring more tried and tested realistic alternatives to Switch and Ditch.

I'm doing my best and will no doubt make mistakes on the way.  But if you do have any questions or concerns about anything I stock or Switch and Ditch in general please get in touch and I'll look into it. Let's do this together.
