Review | Skaza Bokashi Organko 2

Here’s a couple of interesting facts for you; in the UK 6.7 million tonnes of food is wasted each year?? That totals to costs of £10.2 billion!! That’s around £250-£400 per household each year, how crazy is that??

 

I didn’t know that until I started to do some research. Mason asked the big questions; What happens to our food waste once the council have collected it?? What happens if we don’t put it in a food waste bin??

 

I genuinely didn’t know how to answer him. I decided to do some research and find out what actually happens to our food waste.

Review | Saalt Menstrual Cup

Menstrual cups, this is not a new thing but I’ve come across them more over the past few years. I never really thought about buying one let alone using one until I became much more conscious about becoming more green and Eco-Friendly. Who wants to bulk buy sanitary protection each month, stockpiling in different absorbency pads and tampons that really don’t do our environment any good?? Think about how much money we as women spend each month on sanitary protection alone, it’s not cheap getting your period. So I decided that I would look into menstrual cups.

Review | Wild Refillable Deodorant // AD

~*This post contains gifted products*~

 

Natural deodorants that are also sustainable and help reduce your plastic waste, for me is one of those products I’ve been struggling with. Throughout my journey so far I’ve found loads of different types of natural deodorants some in glass bottles but the majority that I’ve tried have been in plastic bottles and when you’re trying to cut down your plastic usage in your home it kind of becomes a bit of an issue if you think about how many you may go through a year.

Don’t get me wrong I’ve found some amazing natural deodorants that do work and that I would buy again, but nothing that ticks all the boxes. Then along came *Wild Natural Deodorants.

Review | Resuaboo Bamboo Coffee Cup // AD

~*This post contains gifted products*~

Being a mum to 3 boys and just living in a house full of boys in general is hard work and I can’t live without my morning coffee, the dream baby has been teething and his tooth has started to cut through the gum so he’s not been sleeping and I think he’s having a bit of a leap as he’s almost crawling so that hasn’t really helped the sleeping either as he’s been waking himself up either on his front trying to crawl or screaming in pain because of his teeth. Let me introduce to you my new Eco-Friendly best friend the *Reusaboo Bamboo Coffee Cup.

 

Those of you that know me, know that I never leave home without a reusable coffee cup, because it not only saves on creating waste (and saves me £££’s), it keeps me topped up with caffeine too for those really long and tiring days when I need it. I’m trying to cut down my single use plastic waste, and this was the first time I’ve actually used a bamboo coffee cup and I have to say that it was so worth the swap. I’ve seen them around and had been dying to try one but never really knew if it would be worth it.

Eco-Swaps | Ditching Single Use Plastic Straws

Since it’s Plastic Free July,

I want to talk to you about a really easy way to start ditching the plastic. If you’ve been a reader of my little blog for a while then you’ll know that I’m on the path to try and lead a more ethical and eco-friendly life. If like me you have kiddies in your house you’ll know the nightmares of having to have straws in the house for them to drink their drinks with, we used to always have those single use plastic straws until I found out the impact they can have on our planet.

 

The UK consumes approximately 8.5 billion plastic straws per year. This equates to an average citizen using 130 straws per year, and compared to other European countries, this figure is remarkably high.

The One Day No Single-Use Plastic Challenge

Back in March WAKEcup and The Marine Conservation Society teamed up, with the aim of inspiring 1 million people around the world to take part in their “1 Day No Single-Use Plastic Challenge” over the course of 2019. Can you challenge yourself to go just 1 day without using single-use plastic?? Easy you may say, I have to disagree, it’s really not as easy as you may think. The idea is really clear but can you do it?? The are lots of helpful tips on the pic above which just so happens to be on the lovely cotton tote bag I got for taking part in the challenge, which I’m finally getting to share with you guys today.
