Review | Eco Made Easy Subscription Box from Smallkind

*Ad

Eco Made Easy is a term I live by. If you follow me on social media you will know that my posts are dedicated to showing how simple eco living can be and breaking down those myths we often hear about it being more complicated and costly. Since making many of my own eco swaps, I can honestly say that I buy less, spend less time at the shops, have just a handful of products for cleaning, and my house is nowhere near as full of “stuff” as it once was. Switching over to eco-friendly ways has completely changed my lifestyle and it can yours too. There are just so many amazing products, companies, tips and blogs out there to help you along your way and one small business has recently taken it a step further by providing a brand new service.

Smallkind is a small sustainable business that I have known for a while and they have just launched their Eco Made Easy subscription box which is specifically designed to help you on your eco journey. I was sent the very first box to review and here are my thoughts…

Ruby Cup Review

*Ad

Having a plastic-free and sustainable period is really important to me. Firstly because I am always looking for ways to reduce my plastic waste, secondly because reusable products are far better for my vaginal health and thirdly because it saves me money. I have been using cloth sanitary pads and period pants for a number of years now but it took me a little longer to switch over to a menstrual cup. This product is definitely the one that many of us are a little reluctant to try out and I think that comes down to the way the cup looks. I for one was initially put off by the size and my very first purchase proved to be wrong for me which didn’t help. I went on to find another brand and even though it was better than my first experience, I hadn’t ever felt 100% comfortable wearing it. However, having carried out a lot of research on menstrual cups I knew there had to be better cup out there for me so when Ruby Cup asked me to try out and review theirs I was keen to find out if this was going to be the winner.

Chris Packham’s Pictures From The Edge of The World Review

*Ad- press tickets

As a child of the ’80’s and ’90’s I grew up watching and loving wildlife shows, they sparked a passion for animals and the environment. I loved learning about the wildlife across the world and how we could all help. The 2 most significant shows at this time had to be Wildlife on One which showed in the evening and The Really Wild Show which was on for children. The hosts, at the time I was tuning in, were Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Terry Nutkins and their energy and enthusiasm had me hooked! Fast forward 20 years and I still try my best to watch all of Chris’ TV shows and I also follow him on social media so when I heard that his live show Pictures From The Edge of The World was coming to The Anvil in Basingstoke I knew I had to see it… And it did NOT disappoint.

We are all very aware that we need to reduce waste, cut our carbon footprint and reduce our meat intake in order to do our bit for the planet but did you know that your pets could help with this too?!

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?

Review | Personalised Rustic Wooden Pet Bowl Holder From BoutiqueGifts

If you currently follow my blog, you’ll know that we welcomed a gorgeous Border Terrier pup into our family in October 2020 after losing our previous Border, Molly, at the grand age of 18. We hadn’t planned on getting another dog but our home just felt so empty. We were so lucky to find Tessa, she was perfect for us and that was clear from the moment we first viewed her. Needless to say, over a year on, she is one of us. She adores the boys, she is so much like Molly in many ways and just so incredibly loyal.

Pet’s for us are family. They aren’t just an animal, they are included in our everyday lives and with dogs that means coming with us almost everywhere we go. It also means they are (ahem) very well looked after – yes, she sleeps on the bed and gets lots of cuddles all of the time and yes, I talk to her like she’s another child… So, of course when BoutiqueGifts asked if I would like to review a Personalised Wooden Rustic Pet Bowl Holder from their website I jumped at the chance to treat her.

Nordgreen watch

Review | Nordgreen Sustainable Watch

Do you know what? I haven’t worn a watch since before having my children! I always used to wear one but the clasp kept getting snagged on things and I didn’t want to hurt their little gentle skin on the cold strap when they were tiny. Checking the time seemed to somehow naturally shift to constantly checking my mobile phone but I must admit that gets really tiresome especially if you don’t always want to have your phone on you. A simple solution would be to now go back to wearing a watch but with sustainability being a really important factor for me, I wanted to ensure I could find a brand that ticked all of my boxes. Nordgreen is one such company who have not only created a sleek and stylish range of sustainable and vegan watches for both men and women but who are also passionate about the impact they have on our planet. They sent me a women’s watch from their Infinity range and this is my review.
