Creating A Privacy Garden With An Eco-Friendly Twist

Here’s how to create a privacy garden… Continue reading “Creating A Privacy Garden With An Eco-Friendly Twist”

Leave Only Your Footprints: Must-Have Reusables For The Beach

We all love to enjoy a day out at the beach, don’t we? But it is incredibly sad and infuriating when images of litter-strewn beaches fill the news after a hot summer’s day. There really is no excuse. Every beach will have a bin somewhere, most beaches also provide toilet facilities and there are often cafe’s who could provide you with a bin liner if you forget your own. The trouble is, a lot of people just don’t seem to care. They seem to think that it’s somebody else’s job to clean up after them, that this will happen before the tide takes the litter and that they can just simply walk away from it all. This is NOT the case. If you visit a place like the beach, the only person responsible for your mess is YOU. If you are leaving litter on the beach but shocked by images such as The Great Pacific Garbage Patch then you have your priorities all wrong.

3 Ways To Have A Plastic-Free Period

*Contains Previously Gifted Product

When I discovered that the majority of sanitary products available on the market contain plastic I was shocked. I mean, I had been using these essential items since the age of 11/12 and never once had I wondered what they were made from, what was added to them or what chemicals they contained. Why would I? We are sold these products on adverts and in magazines, we are told we need them, we are shown a variety of disposable options and told over and over ‘This one is the best!’ What nobody ever told me was that there were other choices.
