The Perfect Reusable On-The-Go Products from Net Zero Company

*Gifted products

I love finding new ways of reducing our plastic waste, living more sustainably and producing less waste. I have the baby/toddler bits sussed now, I have managed to significantly reduce plastic bottles in the bathroom and our kitchen area has many eco-products used in it now so my next steps are to work out where else in our lifestyles we can make positive changes. This year we are taking part in the 1000 hours outside scheme which encourages more activities outdoors and getting in touch with nature rather than being sat inside in front of a screen and this made me realise that we needed more on the go products to help us to be outside all day without the need of buying packaged food items or disposable items such as cutlery and cups so when I saw Net Zero Co’s On-The-Go Reusable Kit it was just the perfect solution.

Which Reusables Can Help You Through The Coronavirus?

*Contains Amazon Affiliate Links

Well, um, where do I start, eh? It all feels very surreal right now. I have literally just returned from a shop where people are grabbing the toilet rolls that have just come in and then frantically asking the staff when more is coming. I saw a man wearing a face mask and a woman wiping her hands over and over with a disposable wipe in her car after shopping. I must admit, I did feel quite calm knowing that I was buying washing powder so I could go home and wash my reusable nappies and wipes and that under my bed I have enough Who Give’s a Crap toilet roll to last me around 3 months or more! Being more eco-friendly seems to have its benefits during a crisis Continue reading “Which Reusables Can Help You Through The Coronavirus?”

Review | Eco Cleaning with E-Cloth

*Gifted Products

I really do like a clean house but I really detest having to use chemicals. I have become far more aware of the amount most people use every single day around their homes and this not only affects the environment but can also affect your health, your children’s and any pets you may own too. I’ve recently been making my own cleaning products in order to steer clear of all of these toxins but then e-cloth got in touch with me and told me they had cloths that enabled you to clean using only water!! Yes, just water. Continue reading “Review | Eco Cleaning with E-Cloth”

Review | Vegan Dish Washing Block

In my constant quest to find products that are both eco-friendly, animal-friendly and plastic-free I am always excited when I see other people using new items on Instagram. When I saw a few posts on a vegan dish washing block I knew I had to give it a go because the washing up liquid was one of the last plastic-filled items on my kitchen worktop. I purchased the block back in September ’19 but wanted to be able to give you a good review of it over time rather than a rushed one over a couple of weeks or so.

My Sustainability Aims for 2020 Blogger Tag

With sustainability being a topic that has become a larger focus both in my life and on my blog, I’m always trying to think of new ways in which to spread the message that being more eco-friendly isn’t that hard at all, giving tips on how to achieve it and to make people realise that anybody can do their bit no matter how small… And what better way to do this than with a blogger tag post? The aim of a blogger tag post is that you join in with the community by answering a set of questions, tagging some likeminded bloggers and sharing the post on social media which is perfect when you are also trying to get an important point out there. So, let’s spread the sustainability idea and tips love. Continue reading “My Sustainability Aims for 2020 Blogger Tag”

Why Absolutely Anybody Can Be Eco

Being more eco is really starting to catch on and the little eco-warrior inside of me is doing a very happy dance about this! But there are still so many more people who could be doing more yet don’t feel they can do due to the way in which being eco is sometimes portrayed. It’s not about being entirely zero waste, you don’t have to completely overhaul your lifestyle, you don’t necessarily need to start growing your own veg and you definitely don’t have to start throwing out all the plastic toys you own. You don’t have to stop driving altogether, you don’t have to turn vegan and you certainly don’t need to live in a log cabin out in the woods! Continue reading “Why Absolutely Anybody Can Be Eco”
