Just like Plastic Free July, Zero Waste Week is a fantastic focus to encourage more of us to look at what changes we can make in our lives in order to reduce our household waste.
What Is Zero Waste Week?
“Zero Waste Week was founded by Rachelle Strauss in 2008 and began as a National UK Campaign. Campaigns last a week and take place annually during the first full week in September.
The campaign runs predominantly on social media and the website ZeroWasteWeek to reach a community of like-minded people who want to reduce residential or commercial waste, reuse materials and recycle as much as possible. The aim of the campaign is to help householders, businesses, schools and community groups increase recycling, reduce landfill waste and participate in the circular economy – in alignment with European recommendations and Directives.
Zero Waste Week was created as a non-commercial grassroots campaign to demonstrate means and methods to reduce waste, foster community support and bring awareness to the increasing problem of environmental waste and pollution”

When it comes to making your home a little more sustainable, I always say to start small, look at what you think is possible for you to change and start in one room. The bathroom is probably one of the most popular rooms for you to begin with because this is the room that has an awful lot of plastic staring at you each time you enter and as there are plenty of plastic-free alternatives now available these should help you to choose which items you could swap out quite easily. Of course, as with all eco changes, not all will work for you and that’s ok. Making more sustainable choices for the planet has to be sustainable for you, there is no point in struggling on when it doesn’t work for you or you know you won’t be able to keep it up. We all have different lifestyles and needs and this journey is all about you, nobody else. To give you a good starting point, I have teamed up with SaveMoneyCutCarbon to bring you these 7 fantastic sustainable bathroom product ideas…Continue reading “7 Fantastic Sustainable Bathroom Product Ideas”
As a pet owner, I am always conscious of what we purchase, what waste we produce (or they produce) and how even our beloved animals also come with a carbon footprint – yes, that’s right even our pets contribute towards global warming. In the UK alone we are reported to own around 12 million pets – that’s 44% of us who own a pet of some variety, so what exactly does this look like in terms of emissions?Continue reading “10 Ways To Be An Eco-Friendly Dog Owner”
Finding a sustainable, plastic-free, natural deodorant has probably been one of the hardest parts of making my lifestyle more eco-friendly. I have tried many brands over the last couple of years and I find that they either don’t work at all, they are messy to apply or they have dried my skin out so much that it has cracked and become extremely painful. I needed a product that was in the middle ground. One that could work on my sweating but wasn’t hard to use. I’d heard great things about Wild deodorant from other people so I thought I would give it a try and here are my thoughts…Continue reading “Wild Deodorant Review”
