Living a carbon neutral life

Living a carbon neutral life

If you care about the planet and you want to make sure that you are doing your part, there are a lot of areas of living that you might want to focus on. One thing that is going to form a central aspect to all of that is trying to ensure that you are living a carbon neutral life. That simply means that you are offsetting whatever carbon you might use, and as such you can be sure that you are minimising the harm you do to the planet. Let’s take a look at how you can do this right now in some more detail. VIEW the POST

Eco-friendly and vegan products you need in your beauty regime

Eco-friendly and vegan products you need in your beauty regime

Did you know it's World Earth Day on April 22nd 2021 and World Environment Day on 5th June 2021? From the plastic packaging filling land fills, to cosmetic chemicals washing away down the drain and disrupting marine life; our beauty routines can make a huge impact. Over the past year I have been looking out for eco-friendly and vegan products to introduce into my beauty regime. I am really conscious about what products I use, where they come from and how they are made. With more and more brands conscious about this too, products are easier to find and in most cases, I find, better than the originals. My quandary is; if vegan ice cream tastes the same, if not better than, normal ice cream - why not make it all vegan? Here are some products I have been using and I love them. VIEW the POST

Eco-friendly baby and children products to look out for in 2021

With each new year comes a renewed sense for many of us to look at ourselves and ask how we can be better. This can cover so many different aspects of our lives, from our performance at work to being a better friend. Another area where each year people continue to aim for improvements is their environmental impact. Making a difference with our environmental impact can take many forms. Doing simple things such as reducing the number of single-use plastics we purchase or swapping out the car for a bicycle or public transport when we can head back into the office. Buying eco-friendly baby and children products should definitely be at the top of your list.

How do reusable baby wipes work?

Many of us may have heard of reusable baby wipes but not thought too much about them, but do you know the positive impact they can bring to our planet? In fact, disposable baby wipes contain a high amount of plastic, and with this material it can actually harm your little ones skin without you realising the problem. VIEW the POST

A toy guide for developing little ones needs

A toy guide for developing little ones needs

With little Isla's looming birthday on Sunday, with the big 3, I have been thinking about the things that have helped her and Noah develop over the years. The toys that really helped them to learn about colours, alphabets and shapes for example. The toys that helped them to develop their motor skills and logical thinking. It might not seem important to think about these things when they are newborns but those developmental toys are an essential part of being a little person. Here are some of the toys that are top of my list: VIEW the POST

Nappy week: gNappies eco friendly

One cute cover. Two nappy options. We were sent some lovely gNappies to try out on little Isla and we got on with them really well, we were sent a small goddess pink gPants and gurple purple gPants with 10 gRefills. I hadn't heard of gNappies before or their concepts, but I am so glad that we were sent them to review. So what is a gPant and what are gRefills? Well I can tell you that combined they are really clever little eco friendly nappies! The difference with these nappies is that they are part reusable and part disposable, so you get to have the stylish, fashionable and funky looks with the yucky bit that you throw away! Apparently 8 million disposable nappies go into landfill in the UK everyday and they take approximately 500 years to to break down, so using gNappies and the gRefills has made me…
