You could say I’m a bit of a daydreamer. I have been known to walk to the shop, for example, and not even remember how I got there. Many of my hours have been spent day dreaming about living on a tropical beach and working as a Scuba Diving Instructor. Probably a common dream for a lot of people actually. But a couple of months ago, I was able to turn my dream into reality.
What better way to show your love than giving a Halmark card on a Halmark holiday… Yeah right!
I’m a firm believer that people shouldn’t need a specific day to show their love for others but there’s no doubt about it, everybody loves Valentine’s Day and the loving feelings it promotes. And yes, I know I should be a bit more romantic haha!
Globally, we dump over 2 billion tonnes of trash every year and sadly, the majority of us have adopted an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ attitude when it comes to waste. But it is now becoming common knowledge that our waste has to go somewhere, it doesn’t just disappear into nothing.
One of my favourite things to do at Christmas time is wrap all of the gifts I have bought for my loved ones. Ever since I was young, I remember this always being an exciting time for me because I just love giving gifts to people.
Christmas is literally round the corner! As usual, I can’t believe that another year is almost over but time flies when you’re having fun!!
Like a lot of people, I love this time of year as it is the perfect excuse to spend quality time with family and/or friends, eat good food, laugh loads and of course exchange presents.
Have you ever purchased one of those sound cd’s? You know the ones with the birds singing and the trees rustling in the light breeze. You may have played this kind of cd to help you sleep at night or to bring some calmness to your day. Well, I’m pretty sure I’ve found the place where these sounds are recorded. And it’s in Guatemala!
I recently watched the documentary called ‘The True Cost’ and it really got me thinking about my relationship with fast fashion. To be honest, in the past I didn’t really care much for the origin of my clothing (or stuff in general), I just liked and wanted the pretty end product. Please note the words ‘liked’ and ‘wanted’, most of the time, I didn’t even need what I was buying and I hardly used it.
What’s one of the easiest ways to cut down on unnecessary waste? Swap out your tissues and serviettes for handkerchiefs!
I’m one of those people that’s always thinking about food. Like always. When I’m eating a meal, I’m already thinking about my next one. And sweets; I just love sweets!
It’s always great to have a handy reference guide when starting out as a new zero waster so I thought I would put together a bunch of quick tips. But even a seasoned zero waster can benefit from these tips!
