For the last year I’ve been making a real conscious effort to buy less and buy better. I used to buy loads of second hand clothes and just purge my wardrobe every few months which was fun for a while but I always end up with too much stuff and clothes that just fall apart.... Continue Reading →
What should you consider when buying sustainable? Perhaps you’ve recently decided that you want to shop a little more consciously, choosing loose fruit and veg instead of in plastic packaging, buying sustainable products over cheap mass made ones.

There's no doubt that this global pandemic is likely affecting almost everyone in the world in some way or another, but some industries and businesses are hit a lot harder in a situation like this. I feel hugely sad for areas of the world that survive on tourism but even here in the UK we... Continue Reading →
