Going green

This month we’re embracing the arrival of autumn with these sustainable favourites.

1. Water Bottle

Quench your thirst with this pretty-in-pink drinks bottle which is 100 percent leakproof, so perfect to pack in your backpack ready for a day out and about. Ditch the plastic and embrace the re-useable properties of this stainless steel bottle, keeping drinks hot for 12 hours or cold for 24. Insulated Drinks Bottle, £20 Qwetch at Something Good Co, Jesmond

2. Wash Bag

Whether you’re up to your eyes in mud from a long walk with the dogs, or just want to be more eco-friendly with your washing, the GuppyFriend bag will be your go-to. Not only does this sustainable wash bag protect your clothes, it also prevents fabrics shedding fibres that typically enter our oceans and rivers. Washing Bag, £25 GuppyFriend at Presca Sportswear, Middlesbrough

3. Jumper

As the temperatures cool, cosy up with this merino bamboo mix super-soft knit. Produced without irrigation or pesticides, bamboo absorbs five times more carbon than hardwood trees, making it a sustainable alternative to cotton. Linscott Bamboo Cropped Knit, £69
