I am always on the lookout for shops which are more geared towards refilling and less packaging. This video shows EAT 17 which has popped up close to home — and is helping me stick to my no plastic resolution.
You can do this too.
Find your closest ‘green’ shop…
Growing stuff is a simple trick to cut down on single use plastics. For a lot of the year I have made an effort to buy fresh unpackaged veg and herbs… or gone without.
I see the inspiring ways people enable others to help our planet rather than destroy it, which is why I say “I wear green tinted lenses”. …
I was utterly stunned when I looked closer at a beautiful blue ‘painting’ I’d been admiring from my seat in a Cornish restaurant in St Mawes.
It was this wonderful abstract collection of bold blues under a simple glass pane and white frame, that caught my eye. …
I can now be less of a hairy Clarey without my v blunt razor or £££ waxing. I have a solid reusable option :)
I discovered Mutiny Shaving Co on Anything But Plastic. Going directly to the Mutiny Shaving Co website, I was able to order just the razor, blades and an orange and lavender soap for £13.99 (I didn’t need the shaving brush).
I’ll build up the courage to hone my shaving skills as it all looks slightly more edgy than my normal blades! Eek! All in the name of saying no to disposable plastic. #jointhemutiny
Pret A Manger offer 50p off if you bring in a reusable cup. If you’re hungry their toasties are delicious and come in fully recyclable paper bags. Yum and Phew as I’m off to work and forgot to have some tea!!! They also sell some cool water bottles and reusable cups.
I am pleased to say we have made a next Little step to help us cut down on what we need to buy from supermarkets.
With a bit of help from Mum, Flora and some lovely weather here in London… we have planted some herbs in the flower bed. Flora swears she will be chief waterer. I am on pest duty… just looking up how to stop the slugs and snails from eating our herbs before us.
Whoop! We are hoping the Mint, Basil, Coriander and Parsley take a leaf out of the weeds book and grow out of control in our garden – one less thing to buy!
