Author: Green Cyprus  //  Category: Green Cyprus Loves...

Who says organic has to be expensive? We found this organically-certified shampoo with lemongrass & honey at Chilly’s in Limassol yesterday. Having now tested it out, I’m rather impressed with the results so I will be returning to buy the remaining stock tomorrow! Priced at an unbelievable €1.75, get it while you can!


A Greener Foil

Green Cyprus has just discovered a 100% Recycled Foil by BacoFoil at All Organic Market, Limassol priced at an economical 1.99 euros. Although we always recommend not using aluminium foil for cooking – baking paper (also pictured) is safter – foil is often useful around the house for other purposes or kids school projects so, nice to finally have a recycled version!

A Greener Cling Film

Author: Green Cyprus  //  Category: Green Cyprus Loves...

Did you know that your average roll of cling film contains plasticisers that can leach into oily foods and have undetermined health effects? It is best to avoid wrapping high-fat foods such as cheeses in cling film a
nd not to use it in contact with food that is microwaved.

Although there are still some question marks over health and environmental issues it is better to use unbleached parchment paper where possible. However, there are times when a little cling film comes in handy…Green Cyprus has discovered this Non-PVC All Purpose Cling Film in E&S Hypermarket, Ayia Phyla, Limassol, priced just over €2. Definitely a safer, greener option!


Snopake Bio2 Bio-Degradable Office Products

Author: Green Cyprus  //  Category: Green Cyprus Loves...
Snopake Bio2 is a range of bio-degradable polypropolene products which are ideal for school or the office.

Traditional plastic materials can last indefinitely. While this provides us with durable products, it does cause problems – when a product is discarded it remains in the environment for a very long time. Traditional plastics cannot bio-degrade as their molecules are larger than the micro-organisms that cause bio-degradation. However a new technique – oxo-biodegradation has now enabled products to be made that will completely bio-degrade when disposed of with the added bonus of being as durable as traditional plastic. As a result this process takes just a matter of months rather than many years and the resultant breakdown actually filters back into the ecosystem.

So now, when you tell people you’re being environmentally friendly, you really are! Snopake Bio2 products include ringbinders, files, pockets, swingfiles, twinfiles, display books and A4 organisers and are available at Kyriacou Bookshops.
