Since Christmas I've made a few simple swaps to reduce the amount of plastic and single use waste in our house. Milk Deliveries! We now get milk delivered 3 times a week from Milk and More. We also get bread, eggs and a yummy organic squash in glass bottles from Rocks. There is something special … Continue reading Simple Eco Swaps
One of my favourite eco swaps has been unpaper towels. And they didn't cost a penny.
