About Me 

"My aim is to live to be 100. I've spent the first 50 years of my life inadvertently polluting the planet. I want to spend the next 50 cleaning it up." Hilary Tooke - Dec 2020

"I firmly believe that the small steps we take every day can add up to BIG CHANGES over time.  If everyone made a few basic changes towards a zero waste lifestyle, over a lifetime the positive impact of those changes would compound into great things towards the wellbeing of our planet for generations to come.


Since the launch of Strictly Sustainable in December 2020, I've tried and tested 100's of natural, sustainable and environmentally friendly products from leading eco-friendly independent brands, based mostly in the UK, who produce innovative and mostly plastic free, organic and vegan products.   I've put together a collection of my favourites in the Strictly Sustainable online store, so that giving yourself, your home and the ones you love a sustainable makeover is affordable, easy and fun.  

I'm always on the lookout for innovative sustainable solutions to help reduce single-use plastic and minimise waste and regularly add new products and brands, so please do keep checking online and sign up to my newsletter for the latest innovations in store.


I hope you find something that you need, love and want to keep using over and over again." 

Yours sustainably




"In May 2020 I took part in The EveryDay Plastic Lockdown Survey and was horrified that my household threw away 111 bits of single-use plastic in one week. I vowed to give myself a sustainable makeover and 'deplastify' my life for good." - Hilary
