Good to see Waitrose jumping on the bandwagon and ending the distribution of takeaway coffee cups in their stores by autumn 2018. It's a small step but it will go its way to making carrying your own coffee cup the norm, just as carrying a reusable shopping bag now is.
After a short hiatus from the blog I'm back and ready to talk about the fun we've been having down at the allotment...
It's almost that time of year again to start a new plastic-free challenge. This is a great place to start thinking about what we use and what we buy which I hope to take onto the rest of the year.
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.
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).
