23 Simple Ways To Reduce Your Household Waste

Reducing our household waste has been an ongoing process for the last 2 years and even though it all comes with research and learning curves we are finally making a huge dent in how many bin liners leave our home for landfill. Our best ever was one bin liner in one week and that’s a family of 4 with one child still in nappies, a dog and a cat!! Yes, it is doable and no it doesn’t have to be hard and I want to share exactly how everybody could make changes within their own lives and lifestyles to work towards a more environmentally friendly future for all of us.

How Semi-Vegetarianism Can Help To Save Our Planet

Saving the planet is most certainly at the forefront of a lot more people’s minds and as we all learn new ways to adapt, find new ways to reuse items, work on reducing our waste I know that most of us are still asking ‘is this enough?’ It can be hard to answer this because it isn’t something we can all measure and what isn’t much to one person may be a big change to another. I am all for the message that if everybody made one simple sustainable change in their lives it will have a big impact. But whilst we are focussing on plastic and rubbish, single-use items and litter picking, what about the bigger picture? Your carbon footprint.

My Tips For Coping With Flying Guilt In An Eco-Conscious World

As you all know, I have become far more eco-conscious over the last two years and as I continue to research more areas it has become very apparent that there are an awful lot of things that we all do every single day that has an impact on our planet. Whether that’s waste, plastic pollution, CO2 emissions, chemicals from products, animal testing… It seems never-ending. I have so far made many a swap, a lifestyle change and even more recently a diet change (I went vegetarian in January) but there is one environmental issue that is hanging over me like a big black cloud and it feels that way because I know it is something I could never stop doing and that’s flying.

How Well Does The Samsung Eco-Bubble Perform?

When we were looking into buying a new washing machine, the Samsung eco-bubble immediately came to my mind. I’d heard good things about it and the fact that it also had the eco function, meant we would also be saving water. However, on the flip side of this, I was concerned that less water, especially in a hard water area would bring problems for our clothing but as most of the reviews we read were positive we decided that the pros outweighed the cons and made our purchase. So how well does the Samsung eco-bubble perform?… Continue reading “How Well Does The Samsung Eco-Bubble Perform?”

Where Is The Love? For Our Planet and For Others…?

“People killing, people dying, children hurting, you hear them crying, can you practice what you preach? Would you turn the other cheek?… Where is the love?…”

 

Just recently as I have sat and heard the news of all that people are trying to do to raise awareness of climate change, as I have scrolled through Instagram seeing those that I follow make eco-swap after eco-swap and as I have read yet another passionate talk from Greta Thunberg, my heart has been filled with pride. Proud that at long last, people are standing up for our planet, that people are trying no matter how small a change it is and that the next generation are going to be the changers for this world but there’s a but… Urgh, I know! Where there is positivity, negativity seems to somehow follow. Continue reading “Where Is The Love? For Our Planet and For Others…?”
