Sustainable Changes in the Bathroom

As we started our journey on living sustainably, the first place to make changes was the bathroom. It seemed the easiest place to start, and I thought it would be, but I was so surprised with how much we used in the bathroom that was unsustainable. If I am honest, it was mainly a lot…

Sustainable Living

More now than ever, we are aware of the destruction our lifestyle has on our planet. Full of ignorance and greed we have damaged what Mother Earth has created. We are at crisis point with the oceans overcome with plastic and global warming at its highest. Since starting a family myself and my husband have…

Vintage Cleaning Solutions – Bicarbonate of Soda

For the last few years, I have been trying and testing the good old fashion go to’s following using a heavily chemical product on my oven, which completely stripped it of its coating. Especially now with a baby these overpriced products with strong odours are not suitable for everyday life. My first testing in my…
