Not only do these items look great and work very well, but they are guaranteed to save you money in the long run. In most cases they last forever too! Yes, they are great for the planet in that they have been sustainably and ethically made out of non-toxic, natural materials, but it's important to us to provide products that tick each and every box - including value for money - and our new essentials range does just that.
So dive in below and discover how you can make tiny changes to save money and save the planet, or go big with our selection of essential bundles - the best type of gift this Christmas!

2. EKO NATIVE RIVERMINT TOOTHPASTE TABS
These tiny tabs are just like toothpaste…but better! Not only do they polish and remineralise your teeth but they have zero wasteful packaging. Made from 100% natural Aussie ingredients, they are non-toxic and have a subtle yet refreshing flavour.
The first of its kind in Australia, sustainable oral care brand Eko have created these natural tooth tabs to remove surface satins on your teeth, prevent tooth decay and remineralise enamel whilst also being gentle on gums. Basically everything that your standard toothpaste claims to do but without all the packaging and nasty chemicals! They come in an endlessly reusable glass jar, so the earth, as well as your teeth, will love you for making the change!
While exploring our dental care essentials don't forget your bamboo toothbrush (with interchangeable head).
3. DIRT LAUNDRY DETERGENT
It's no secret that we love Dirt and so do you! This sustainable laundry detergent comes in a handheld dispenser bottle, with an easy-to-use pump that dispenses the exact amount of detergent required for each load of washing. Each bottle has 475ml of detergent, and provide 35 loads of washing. That equals $0.48 per load so not only is this laundry detergent better for your wallet, but the sustainable packaging is better for our planet too.
Once you've finished your first bottle, just buy Dirt refill packs (to avoid buying multiple bottles) and then bring them into our Manly store once emptied. We will then send them back to Dirt HQ for them to reuse!
Also, while on the topic of cleaning we tested the Eco Max Dish Brush and dish soap for 12 months before we decided it was the best product available and now we are bring it to you online at BLAEK Store.
4. BAMBOO DETANGLER BRUSH
Our newest addition to our natural and sustainable hair care range is the Bamboo Detangler Brush by Zerocare. Switch from those plastic brushes that have breakable pins and always seem to tear your hair out, as this brush is suitable to detangle all hair types and is 100% plastic-free. Palm sized to pop in your handbag with an easy-to-hold contoured shape, it has thin, flexible pins for combing through hair, made from 100% FSC Certifed bamboo. With a non-toxic varnish coating these brushes have been made from 100% sustainable materials so will not only give you stronger, shinier and smoother hair, but will have minimal impact on our planet.
The perfect gift for someone who never has a brush with them - but always seems to need one!
Not a brush kinda guy or gal? Shop the Bamboo Detangle Comb by Zerocare and always have it on you for that quick-dip-back-to-work hair fix!
5. KAPPI REUSABLE SAFETY RAZOR
Tired of using disposable razors or razor heads that only seem to give you stubble and ingrown hairs? Meet the Kappi Safety Razor, available online in matte black or rose gold. Modern, sleek and durable it will become the only razor you'll ever need, doing away with wasteful disposables, and reducing our collective environmental footprint - something we stand for at BLAEK Store.
Another upside? The Kappi reusable razor will give you the smoothest, irritation-free shave of your life whilst also looking super sharp (excuse the pun) on your bathroom shelf. Each razor includes a 10-pack of replacement razor blades which should last around 70 shaves (5-7 shaves per blade).
