What fresh hell is this? Surely this is taking the whole eco-friendly thing too far? That's what my friends think anyway. I love it. I am a convert. Goodbye conditioner.

Simple Eco Swaps
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.

They are … Continue reading Cloth Sanitary Pads: A Monthly Game Changer
Review: Cheeky Wipes
If I had to pick only one product to recommend to prospective parents (or current parents) it would be Cheeky Wipes. We stumbled across these at a baby show at Kensington Olympia and were immediately sold on the idea because disposable wipes are horrible for the environment and we wanted to try to limit our … Continue reading Review: Cheeky Wipes
Review: Tots Bots Cloth Nappies
We decided to go cloth quite early on in my pregnancy as we wanted to do a little bit towards saving the environment. Cloth nappies can be up to 40% better for the environment than disposable nappies depending on how you use them. The reason we went with Tots Bots was because we happened upon their stall … Continue reading Review: Tots Bots Cloth Nappies
