July is known by many as Plastic Free July. Plastic Free July is a global movement to get people to reduce consumption of single use plastics. It peaks in July with a challenge to reduce at least one area of single use plastic. With more and more reusable options becoming available, it’s becoming easier and more affordable to make the switch.
With the help of some of our favorite plastic free brands we’re giving away a Plastic Free hamper worth over R2900 filled with products we love and use. Here’s what you can win!

Humble + Mash Silicone Baking Mat
You may remember this mat from here. It is both oven and freezer friendly and we use it multiple times a week. Aside from it’s obvious use as a replacement for baking paper when baking, Zissy loves using it to freeze fruit individually before storing them in Stasher bags for smoothies or freezing these peanut butter balls to set them. It makes it easy to remove them and prevents us from using baking paper unnecessarily. It also cleans really well and lasts! We’re giving away 1 Humble + Mash silicone mat worth R249.
Stasher Reusable Silicone Sandwich Bag
These Stasher bags were another item we shared here and you’ll always find multiple bags in our freezer or the fridge packed with snacks or fruit and veggies. They’re eco-friendly, environmentally safe, long lasting and really easy to clean (but do not turn them inside out!). They’re also both oven (yes oven!) and freezer friendly. We use them most for meal prepping and storing frozen fruit in the freezer for smoothies or greens in fridge. We’re giving away 2 Stasher Reusable Silicone Sandwich Bags worth R390.
Mepal Cirqula Multi Bowl Set
The cirqula collection of bowls from Mepal was designed specifically for a complete ‘circle of use’. The food in these bowls can be stored in the freezer or fridge, heated up in the microwave (without the lid) and can then be served directly at the table. Our favorite feature of the bowls is that you can see through the lids, so you don’t need to open them to remember what you put in them. They’re also airtight and leak proof so you can travel with them full of food. We’re giving away a set of Mepal Cirqula Multi Bowls that includes a 2.5l shallow bowl, a 750ml shallow bowl and a 1000ml deep bowl, collectively worth R807.
Mepal Fruit and Veggie Pot
This stunning pot was designed for fruit and veggies on the go. It includes a smart colander allowing you to rinse your fruits and veggies as well as a fork that fits into the pot so you don’t have to remember your cutlery. It’s also leakproof and BPA free. Our favorite feature is the colander which makes rinsing produce really easy and something you’d be able to do anywhere. We’re giving away 1 Mepal Fruit and Veggie Pot worth R349.

Zoku Reusable Pocket Straw
You can’t have too many reusable straws especially one that is travel friendly. The Zoku reusable pocket straw is stainless steel with a silicone mouthpiece. It’s folds down into a nifty travel case that also includes a brush. Our favorite feature is the brush it comes with as in order to preserve your reusable straw you need to wash it properly as soon as you’re done with your drink to avoid liquid drying up and becoming impossible to clean. We’re giving away 1 Zoku Reusable Pocket Straw worth R199.
OXO Good Grips Reusable Silicone Lid
The OXO silicone lid creates an instant suction seal to protect and store prepared food, leftovers and more, so you don’t need to waste cling wrap.
