Sustainable Step – Deodorant

The Sustainable Steps series provides quick and easy tips about how to make more sustainable choices in your everyday life.


Deodorant is something that can divide even the most eco conscious among us.

I live in Australia which is a very hot place for most of the year. I also live a very active lifestyle with my family.  I need a deodorant that works! 

There are many natural deodorants available on the market and plenty of recipes for making your own at home. But the question everyone always asks is “do they work?”

The short answer is “yes”.

The longer answer is that it can take time to find one that works for you.

After setting on a quest to find a more natural deodorant, I had almost given up finding one that could keep up with my sweaty lifestyle. That was until I found No Pong.

No Pong is the most effective deodorant I have ever used. Even at the end of a long hot summer day I don’t smell – which is something I can’t even say for traditional deodorants I used to use. Best of all it is an all natural product that comes in a plastic free tin.t

This is not an add. I’m just sharing the product that works for me and hopefully inspiring you not to give up on finding the perfect sustainable deodorant that works for you.
