School Photos

My boys’ lockdown haircuts (or lack of) have meant that this year’s school photos have turned out to be a great source of amusement for me. However, having recently put all of the previous school photos up on the wall I knew that I already had a collection of unused cardboard frames (mounts) stashed in …

Circular System

These 4 containers save me buying 40 plastic bottles! It has taken me a while to get around to clearing the space but I am delighted to have finally been able to order these 5 litre containers of refill products from Bare + Fair. Not only are they great eco-friendly products but they also work …

Electric Razor

My husband doesn’t have much time to spare these days and so his willingness to take the extra time to learn how to use his safety razor quickly (and safely) has not materialized over the last 2 years. So as a result I have finally had to make a compromise and buy him an electric …

How beautiful are my birthday flowers?! My husband was a little bit concerned that it was going to be difficult to buy me flowers this year as he knew that I would want them to be sustainable. However he needn’t have worried as I was delighted to discover that our local florist Poppies & Peonies …

I hadn’t previously thought of Fairtrade products as being that important in the fight against climate change however …

Trousers

It is always a nice surprise when I find sustainable choices easy to find in a mainstream High Street shop. My latest discovery has been the H&M Conscious clothing range. Having been unable to find the hand-me-down trousers for my youngest and my eldest son’s legs suddenly growing, I have recently had to buy some …

Pans

Apparently my cooking technique of heating everything at full power and then ignoring it until it burns/overflows is not the best way to care for my pans (let alone the food)! My recent utter boredom with cooking has therefore unsurprisingly meant I that have managed to kill off more than one of my non-stick pans …
