Its been a busy few weeks and I haven’t been able to develop this little project as I would have hoped to. I’m hoping to do some research on topics relevant to my lifestyle to see how I can make life more eco friendly. Despite the busyness, I have been continuing with the project and here are some of the things I’ve done.
- I’ve been to collect my new food caddies. Our old ones were damaged and unable to be used, so I ordered new ones online and am now saving my food waste again. I also got a battery recycling bag and lots of leaflets and advice on how to recycle more.
- Mr S has been making some new raised beds for growing vegetables and I have helped prepare them. He has done most of the work, but I did help line them and move them into position in the garden. We also borrowed a wheel barrow from a neighbour to move the soil rather than go and buy a new one for this job. Sharing is caring!
- Disposable cups used : 0 The most difficult aspect of this is not take away drinks but the water fountain at work with its plastic cups.
- Plastic bags purchased : 0 I am being really good at remembering to always have bags in my bag and being prepared for my trip.
I think my focus for the next few weeks is looking at the seasonal foods for February and using less food packaging. Happy eco living.
