Unfortunately, there aren't many options for green travel when you're going on holiday abroad - which leaves most of us needing to use an aeroplane to get to and from our destination.
Packing for your holiday can be stressful - there's so many variables to consider... but have you ever thought about taking a capsule wardrobe with you?
For this instalment of Food Friday, I'll be talking about buying produce from your local food market.
For me, my local market is based at Kew Village on the first Sunday of every month, but I also have a few other markets nearby which are open every weekend, which makes food shopping a little easier for fresh items.
After speaking to a few amazing people over the last couple of weeks, I thought it would be good to start a monthly "spotlight" feature.
For this, I'll be interviewing individuals from all different backgrounds, from farmers to designers, to really get to grips with ethical standards in different industries.
So, for the first ever "In the Spotlight' feature, I asked Hannah Price, founder of Willowknd some questions!
I always try to buy my meat direct from the farmers, or at worst, my local butcher, but to get everyday essentials I do a weekly shop at a "normal" supermarket.
So, I had written the blog and had just pressed "publish" when it deleted itself! Undeterred, I'm now re-writing it!
I attended Fashion Revolution Week: Launch Night & Panel Discussion, where the question was can fast-fashion ever be sustainable?
The panel consisted of:
- Fee Uhssi, Fashion Designer
- Slywia Bajek, Fashion and Art Consultant
- Dr. Francesco Mazzarella, Research Fellow at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion.
What a line up!
What a stunning weekend we're having in the UK at the moment! Anyway, I thought it would be apt to write about some of things I've been up to :)
I first went to the London Expo 2018: International Garments & Fabrics Trade Fair. Although I'm not a buyer, I thought it would be interesting to meet some of the people who make a vast amount of our clothes and find out what their sales pitches are like!
Every Friday in May I'll be reviewing different food suppliers and/or supermarkets, starting with Pipers Farm.
I do eat meat, which I know is a controversial choice for a lot of people. I am very strict on the provenance of where it comes from, and I research numerous suppliers before I commit to purchase.
In my quest to keep finding new and exciting ethical and sustainable fashion brands (mainly clothing, but the odd accessory too!), I thought it would be a good idea to start a blog post that lists them all. It will be on-going and added to as and when I find somewhere new!
Please also comment your favourite brands if I've missed them :D
