July Eco-challenge – beauty products ooh la la

For my eco-friendly challenge this month, I’ve decided to take a long hard look at all of the products that I use and do a bit of an audit, as well as try to make some more eco-friendly swaps and try my hand at a homemade product or two. 

Waste less water – May and my eco-friendly challenge

Water is arguably one of our most precious and vital commodities. After all, it’s the thing that makes Earth so unique. However, we quite simply use way too much water. Think about it – to prepare our foods, to wash and for personal hygiene, to clean everything else in our lives and more. Water is such a fundamental part of our lives, and yet, unfortunately, it is a resource that we are quickly realising is not indefinite. All over the world, though, I do believe that people realise we can’t just use as much water as we want and still think we’ll have plenty for years to come. However, I believe that we can all be more clever about saving water, so that is what my May eco-challenge will be all about. The ways in which I can try to save as much water as possible. 

April Eco-friendly Challenge and Earth Day Collab with Project Eco

April is all about Earth Day, so all the points and tips about how we can be more friendly to our beautiful planet and do small things to contribute to helping it heal in some way or the other. So today, I am so happy to be setting my monthly challenge and chatting about how to be more eco-friendly in our daily lives with Project Eco. Being eco-friendly is something I am so passionate about so being able to do a collab like this is a huge moment for me. (Throwing a little party in my head!! Wooohoooo). I hope you enjoy today’s post!

World Wildlife Wednesday – Eco-friendly March is marching for wildlife

I was doing some research to help me decide which eco-friendly goal I wanted to pursue next when I realised that the 3rd of March is World Wildlife Day, so what better topic for me to blog about today than to choose something wildlife-related as my goal for the month? Today I’m going through my wildlife goals for this month – I hope you’ll join me in the challenge

February Eco-Friendly Challenge – Pitching Plastic!!

s I said, I’m making it a mission to become more environmentally friendly. The way I’m going to do this is by setting myself a challenge each month. Every month I’m going to try and tackle a different part of my life where I can live more sustainably or be more eco-friendly, and this month I’m pitching plastic! Now I know that in society’s current climate it can be challenging to make significant changes like this (it’s not like the rest of the world is necessarily helping out like all the plastic packaging in supermarkets, straws etc.). The big thing I really want to do with these challenges is to make them sustainable and practical to slot into daily life.

Blogmas Day Sixteen – Guest post by Elena (Christmas sustainability)

Today I have a special post for you all. When I put out the announcement for guest posts to all of you in the Blogosphere, I also put it out to my close friends both at home and university and so today I am sharing one of those posts. This post is written by one of my friends Elena – we’re both doing the same degree and are both passionate about the environment so today I am sharing with you Elena’s post on having a more green Christmas this year. I hope you all enjoy it!

Blogmas Day Seven – Sustainable gift-giving guide

Gift-giving at Christmas might be one of the most stressful aspects of the holiday. Now that December has well and truly begun, I have a feeling Christmas shopping is relatively high up on people’s lists of priorities because there is nothing worse than leaving it for the last minute and having to regift half the things in your bedroom or resorting to sending everyone a card and little e-voucher via email. Another thing that’s important to consider when doing gift shopping is the environment. So today, in honour of the polar bears (and all the other wildlife creatures with their homes under threat), I’m going to be sharing the sustainable version of my gift-giving guide!
