A Fast Fashion Boycott…

I’m boycotting the high street and saying no to fast fashion for moral and environmental reasons.

Why we need to forget eco-friendly alternatives.

So we all know it now, disposable nappies are bad for landfill, wipes contain plastic, we should all have cloths around the kitchen that can be washed after use. We get it, we know it’s all bad. But hang on, you can buy eco- alternatives. This is great, Detol says theirs are 100% biodegradable and…

Low Waste Camping with Kids

Is it possible? Yes. It is completely Zero Waste? Not a lot is but we can try… The number 1 thing on the list is to Be Prepared. Easier said than done I know and I certainly failed a few times on this trip. But the main learning curve with all of my holidays really…

Looking beyond Zero Waste

First of all most of this post is me speaking of some of the guilt I feel. Guilt of how lucky I am. I was born into Privilege. Number one with the colour of my skin. There’s no denying that being born white means more doors are instantly opened for you. If you had said…
