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”

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?”

Should We Be Going Meat-Free?

Should we be going meat-free? This is something I have been going back and forth with over the last year I’d say. Having watched my sister turn Vegetarian last year and thinking she was mad after over 30 years of being a meat-eater, I am now contemplating joining her. Why? Because I feel that I need to do more for our planet and going meat-free could have the biggest impact.

I have watched a lot of TV programmes in the last 18 months and I am very aware of our plastic problem, of the need to cut back on what we buy and the importance of making better product choices BUT Continue reading “Should We Be Going Meat-Free?”

How You Can Be More Eco-Friendly This Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, you may already be thinking about those presents, the decorations, how much food you will need to buy and which family will be hosting. It’s a big day and it can take a lot of planning BUT is it too big? Has Christmas got out of hand? Do we need to start reining it all in? Do we need to consider our waste and consumption now that we are very aware of the overuse of plastic and climate change? Looking at current figures I’d say so! It has been reported that in the UK alone we create 30% more waste than usual during the festive period, which includes two million turkeys and six million Christmas trees plus 1 billion Christmas cards!!
