All You Need To Know About Using A Menstrual Cup

Plastic-free periods have been taking the spotlight in the last few years and having several choices now means that every period can be more comfortable, more affordable in the long run and better for your health as well as for the environment. The three options that are currently available to use are cloth sanitary pads (CSP), period pants and the menstrual cup. All three can be used, washed and reused. You can choose just one, you may want to choose two options or you can mix it up and go for all three. For example, on heavier days you may feel better wearing a period pant as you get that all round protection, at night you may like CSP and for swimming the menstrual cup may be your go to plastic-free period product. The joy of having all of these is that you can choose what will work for you.

Cleaning Products That Make Being More Eco-Friendly Simple

Ad

Having a clean home is important but this has long been associated with chemicals, plastic bottles, plastic sponges and non-recyclable items. When you walk down the cleaning aisle in the supermarket you are stepping into an area that has a product for every job imaginable and it is easy to become overwhelmed, to feel as though you need it all and to go away with a trolley filled with plastic, which is why sourcing your cleaning products (including your brushes, sponges, scrubbers, etc) elsewhere is far more beneficial. SaveMoneyCutCarbon can meet all of your eco cleaning needs and more, and I am going to take a closer look at some of the eco-friendly cleaning products that they recommend and also some of my personal favourites.

10 Water Saving Tips That Will Help The Environment

When you live in a country like the UK it may be hard to imagine that saving water can be important but even with our amount of rainfall, the earth is still warming, we are beginning to see hotter summers and more unusual weather patterns which is all leading to a water shortage and, if we don’t act now, it is predicted that by 2050 we will see real struggles. Here are 10 water saving tips that you can easily do each and every day in your own home that will help the environment.

Talking To Childcare Settings About Cloth Nappies… And Getting Them On Board!

When it comes to the time to choose a childcare setting we all have certain areas that we want to be ticked off: experienced staff, outdoor time, educational play, socialisation, role play, plenty of stimulation and so on, but if you are a cloth parent, approaching childcare settings about using them can feel very daunting. Disposable nappies have been mainstream for a long time now and it may seem the easiest option to go along with this just to “fit in” but if we want to continue to spread the word about cloth, if we want our child/children to wear them full time, if we want to make a change and bring cloth to the forefront then talking about them and asking others to use them too is the way to help this to happen. In this article, I am going to share how I went about talking to a childcare setting about cloth nappies and how I got them on board (spoiler, it wasn’t hard!)

Stasher Bag Review

*Ad

As a family, we are always looking for new ways to reduce our kitchen waste and one of the biggest areas is to eliminate all single-use food coverings and storage. We already use beeswax wraps which have been a great step towards banishing the clingfilm but sometimes you really need a sealed option that won’t let the air in and even though we try out best to reuse freezer bags, they still wear over time and need replacing. We needed a reusable and long-term solution. Stasher Bags provide that and I was sent a selection in this month’s SaveMoneyCutCarbon box to review.

6 Ways You Can Reduce Your Food Waste

Food waste is a huge problem not only here in the UK but across the globe. It is estimated that 1/3 of the food we buy ends up going to waste which equates to 10 million tonnes a year! Not only is this shocking because of the number of people who are living in food poverty but it is a huge issue for our planet too. This food all has to go somewhere and, if not incinerated, that somewhere will be landfill where it will very slowly rot. You may think this is the best place for it as many companies consistently try to persuade us that products can biodegrade in landfill but unfortunately, landfill will never be able to provide the right conditions for this and instead, everything that ends up there will still be there in decades to come. The waste we send is usually inside a plastic bin bag. Items inside will be up against more plastic, materials and metals. The mix of this as well as the lack of oxygen leads to your food waste emitting dangerous gases such as methane which enter the atmosphere and contributing to global warming.
