Making the switch from normal products to greener things may seem daunting, but, to be honest, there are easy exchanges you can make as soon as possible.
If you follow the green community on social media, you'll have seen the latest drive for a plastic-free July. The zero-wasters are promoting their cause by showing how it can be done for just one month (and then hopefully it will encourage participants to carry on throughout the year).
The kitchen has to be the most wasteful room in the house. It certainly is in our house any way. So I've been looking at ways to reduce our waste.
In the green world words get thrown around to describe the different attributes of products but what do they mean? It's easy to get bogged down by the lingo and walk into a shop not really knowing what to expect. So I've put together a little glossary of terms which will probably get extended and added to over time to include new terminology I learn as I'm going along!
The journey to going green isn't easy, the steps you can take are simple but, as with any journey, you will face challenges along the way. I've only just started out and already I'm finding difficulties I did not anticipate! Here is the 5 main challenges I have found so far:

My boyfriend (let's call him G) and I have been unconsciously making our way to a more sustainable lifestyle for some years now. But there came a time when we decided to make conscious decisions to live a greener, cleaner and environmentally friendlier life.
My name is Rose and this is my blog on leading a sustainable and ethical lifestyle in the United Kingdom. I follow hundreds of ethical fashion and beauty Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr accounts but only a handful of these are from the UK.
