HI Everyone - Just a quick post today. Thanks to Martin Lewis' Money saving expertise - see his website and sign up for emails here - I have found a link where those of us in the UK can order some water-saving devices FREE for a limited time. Clearly those with water meters are happy to … Continue reading Free Ways to Save Water – Limited Offer
As part of my Lent Promise I started a new petition yesterday. It’s very similar to the old (unsuccessful) one. Today’s Lent activity is to publicise said petition so here we go. In early September 2018 I petitioned the government on their own petition website. I had six months to gather as many electronic signatures … Continue reading New Petition! Please Help! (Groan!)
I’m so embarrassed! I’ve never claimed to be a perfect greenie and I’m sorry to say that I have booked FOUR plane flights this year. I’m sorry for the harm I’m doing to the planet but I forgive myself for the two holidays! We’ve already taken one – to the Canaries – and it was … Continue reading Confession Time!
Sadly only three entrants this time – I guess I should be pleased with the 50% rise in numbers! As there were three entries and 2 prizes, I have added a third prize, a roll of paper tape, which I now use in place of sellotape. Therefore I will pull the names out of a … Continue reading Competition Result Feb 2019

There are lots of companies selling plastic free versions of everyday items now, both locally and online. A google search will throw up loads of sites and it would be impossible to explore them all. As you may have read in my January Resolution, I have visited some local shops, but they are more focused … Continue reading Great Retailer – nonplasticbeach.com
We've been on our first Litter Pick! Through our local Facebook group, Love Horfield, a young woman asked if anyone wanted to join her in a local litter pick. It seemed like quite a few people were going and we signed up. In the hope that we would do this more than once we even … Continue reading Litter Picking!
How do we ethically wrap our Christmas and birthday presents? The wrapping paper industry must be huge, especially at this time of year. Unfortunately most local authorities will not take wrapping paper for recycling. Bristol City Council say that they do not recycle it because it is such low grade. I may not be right … Continue reading Wrapping Up for Christmas?
I think my reader has realised by now that I am slightly obsessed with the environment and how we are destroying it. I am not by any stretch of the imagination the best at producing zero waste or not using single-use plastic but I am at least trying. It wouldn’t be any good being perfect … Continue reading Eco Bricking (and why I’m not doing it)
I know that not many people read this blog yet (note the optimism), and that everyone reading this probably knows about my petition, but I really need some help with it. It requires 10,000 signatures for government to respond and 100,000 to be considered for debate. As I write I am proud to say that … Continue reading Re-Visiting the Black Plastic Petition
