You probably don’t spend too much time thinking about deodorant. Whether you use a roll on, stick or spray, most people just buy whatever’s handy and then bin it when it’s done, another bit of plastic or metal for our ever-growing landfill sites. Well, Wild wants to change all that – this is natural, refillable deodorant with no single-use plastic in sight.

Here’s the way it works. When you sign up to Wild’s deodorant subscription service, you’ll get a stylish, hard wearing case made of anodised aluminium and recycled plastic and a biodegradable refill of your chosen scent (there are five to pick from). Then you’ll be sent three new refills (to save on postage) at regular intervals, and can change your scent whenever you want.
