Since living in London I've really struggled with the hard tap water. I want to drink more (and less squash), but the taste I just can't quite cope with.
So, after reading a post by Eco Boost, I thought I'd give bamboo charcoal a try.
There's a lot of debate about sunscreen and it's confusing....
How often should I apply sunscreen? Is chemical sunscreen safe? Should I use mineral sunscreen? Or I not use sunscreen at all?
I've been working and living in central London for 2 years now, and I've only just started going on holidays... well long weekend getaways really... and one of the things that I've been looking for is sustainable swimwear.
The demand for polyester has been exponential over the years; in 1980, the demand was "only" 5.3 million tonnes globally but by 2000 the demand had grown to 19.2 million tonnes.
In 2014, the demand had surged to 46.1 million tonnes. To put this into perspective, the total fibre demand (includes cotton, silk amongst others) was 55.7 million tonnes - so polyester takes up to 73.4% of the whole fibre/fabric market!
(My apologies must go to Rose as I've been so busy over the last couple of weeks, I've been hardly responding to messages or even writing blog posts.)
I've been utterly intrigued by Rose's life since I started speaking to her over Facebook a few weeks ago, so I was absolutely thrilled when she agreed to be involved in my "In The Spotlight" series.
I don't know about you, but I always seem to run out of toilet roll! It's one of those products that I just seem to forget about, and then have to do a mad dash to my local corner shop to replenish.
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!
