Who doesn't love a good party? The thing about being less wasteful is that it shouldn't mean you can't still have fun! But instead of plastic, polluting balloons and single use cups why not go more classy? Get the real wine glasses out, make some punch from locally-sourced fruit and party like it's 1999 (except with composting, curbside recycling and fair trade)!
One of the things ubiquitous with weddings is stationery. From save-the-dates to table plans, paper is used everywhere. This is one of the first eco-friendly things we are thinking about for the wedding.
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.
This was my first attempt at being plastic-free for a whole month (See my original post here) and, as predicted, I ran into a few problems.
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.
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!
