Tastily

Tastily

Free from artificial ingredients, preservatives, and refined sugars, Tastily’s pre-made meal subscription service is the next generation of ready meal. Not only are they healthier, these chef-made meals focus on quality, sustainability, and provenance to be the best on the market. Each meal is created by a Michelin-trained chef, with Head Chef Steve Bailey overlooking the team. The meals are never frozen, as the brand uses cutting-edge packaging technology to keep each dish fresh for seven days – meaning you’ll never have to compromise on taste. This also makes it possible for Tastily to deliver its meals weekly rather than daily, reducing the carbon footprint as well as delivery costs. Bargain. Meals from £6. tastily.co.uk

Sapling Spirits Cocktail Box

The Green Cocktail Club

Become a cocktail connoisseur with Sapling Spirits’ new subscription service. Each month you’ll receive a box containing the ingredients for eight drinks, plus recipes created by a world-renowned mixologist and a how-to video. You don’t need to worry about buying lots of fancy equipment either, as the first box comes with a shaker and a spirit measure. Not only are the cocktails sure to be delicious, Sapling is a climate-positive vodka: for every bottle sold, a tree is planted – and there’s even a code on the bottle to tell you what tree was planted and where. £35 per month, for £10 off your first box use the code CTH10 at checkout. saplingspirits.com

Choose between either 30 plastic-free Nespresso pods or a 250g bag of beans or ground coffee, plus either milk or dark chocolate, or a mix of both. What’s more, £1 from each box goes to The Blurt Foundation, a charity helping young people and adults affected by depression in the UK. From £25 a month. coffeeandkin.co.uk
