Festival Favourites 2013
We’re beavering away here at Ethical Superstore HQ, preparing for the Summer and searching for loads of new eco products to list. Check out our festivals favourites to see what we’ve found.
One particular brand we found is Nilaqua, who have tackled the question of how to stay clean when there’s not much water about. People don’t often think about the environmental impact water has at festivals. In addition to the diesel fumes/transport pollution of using tankers, the water has to be heated (usually with gas burners or generators) you have to dig holes in the ground for waste, you need chemicals to purify and prevent disease, then you have to collect the grey water and tanker it away again. Overall, festival showers are a large cost and detriment to the environment.
Nilaqua is kind and gentle to the skin and contains no parabens or alcohol. Simply apply the liquid directly to the hair or body, massage to lift dirt and grease, then remove by thoroughly towel drying! These alcohol free goodies are not only far better for the environment than washing with water but they save queuing, give you a bit of privacy and of course they leave you sparkling!
We have Waterless Body Wash and Shampoo in handy 200ml or handbag (or man-bag!) sized 65ml bottles. Both are great for refreshing after a day moshing and removing the inevitable mud-pack treatment that is synonymous with British summer festivals to leave you ready to rock another day. There’s also a convenient Hand Sanitiser to keep your hands clean germ-free on the go!
