Last week I bought the September issue of Elle magazine - The Sustainability Issue. It has taken me a week to read it as I've been making so many notes and googling EVERYTHING from 'sustainable jeans' to 'Plogging' (absolutely nothing sexual - I PROMISE!). I love shopping and love the buzz when you find something … Continue reading Charity Shop Top Tips
I've picked up packets of Beeswax wraps numerous times in my local 'green' shop, but just couldn't justify the price. As with most plastic alternatives the initial cost is always an investment (and I've accepted that), but I thought I'd have a go at making my own before handing over the cash.

For example being more aware of just how much plastic is used to package pretty much … Continue reading What a lovely package…
Before I get started, I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year! I'm struggling with normality and seem to have no idea what day it is, how we suddenly ended up in 2018, what I'm doing tomorrow and seriously questioning why I didn't ask anybody for a diary or calendar for Christmas!
