If you are wondering if adjusting your diet really could have an impact on climate change, I can highly recommend watching “Feast to Save the Planet” that is now on BBC iPlayer.

New Year Resolutions

My mantra at the moment is to focus on what I can do rather than what I cannot. Positivity is what I need right now and so I am currently thinking about what my New Year’s resolutions should be to motivate myself. The start of 2021 is unfortunately not going to be the fresh start …

Fruit and Veg Miles

Just because we can have it all, doesn’t mean we should. I have absolutely no idea what season different fruits and vegetables can grow here in the UK as our supermarkets have always enabled me buy whatever I like, whenever I like.

Litter Pick

I haven’t managed to read a book for about 7 years (mainly due to relentless children and the subsequent tiredness), however on recommendation by a friend I have just finished ‘No More Plastic’ by Martin Dorey. It is a great little quick read, giving an overview of the plastic problem we are facing and introducing …
