Time to start planning our new allotment for the forthcoming year. A whole year of vegetables to be planted!
A delicious and super easy recipe for dark chocolate truffles. Perfect for a gift or a little indulgence for yourself.
As the Christmas season gets into full swing it seems to have become so easy to lose my green way. I feel so much pressure to find presents for various people (many of whom would not appreciate or recognise a green gift) that my simple green gift rules seem to go astray.
Another year has gone by and Christmas is here again! In our house it truly is a wonderful time of year and part of getting into the spirit is an evening spent setting up the decorations with a glass of hot gluhwein in hand.
Once again that time of year is upon us again. But unfortunately commercialisation of the season lures more and more people into buying throw-away gifts, tat and cheap items. Here are my suggestions of conscious presents to give this year.
Have you ever thought about where all those used tampons and sanitary towels go? Have you wanted to think about it?? Well it's not nice. Water companies clear over 55,000 sewage blockages every year, and most are caused by the wrong things being flushed down the loo. But if you don't flush it do you bin it? The average woman can use between 8,000 to 17,000 tampons in her lifetime. That amounts to A) a lot of rubbish in the landfill and B) a lot of money. So what are the alternatives?
We spend a lot of time thinking about how we can be more green at home, but for most of us a vast majority of our week is spent at work. In a place where we usually have limited control over how green our lives can be.
Being green isn't just for humans you know. Here is a simple recipe for chemical and additive-free cat treats that they will love!
As ever, I am always looking out for more eco-friendly options in my daily life. This week my already eco-conscious choice of clothes detergent ran out so I've tried Soap Nuts and written a review on my first thoughts.
Remember that it is possible to be green and still enjoy going on holiday. But it's important to think about how you go and what you do once you're there.
