Critical items missing at supermarkets and how to make your own
Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen how some items have disappeared from supermarket shelves as supply chains can’t keep up with consumer’s demand.
So today, we’ve decided to show you some alternatives to those items that you can easily do from the comfort of your own home and are still zero waste!

- Hand sanitizer: There’s no need to stock up on hand sanitizer, soap is just as good.
