Hi,

It’s been a while since I last really blogged. I have been busy with work and family life. This blog is all about going plastic free, or at least creating less waste. It’s shocking that all the plastic ever made is still on earth! It takes over 300 years to decompose

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. This year mine and Jessica’s (plus Andy being dragged into it) new years resolution is to use less plastic. It’s great how it’s been high-lighted in the media so much now. It’s going to be a gentle move over to more recyclable items. I personally see no point in getting rid of items we already own and Jessica is adamant that Lego isn’t to be included in this new years resolution hehe! We mostly buy second hand, so I’m justifying it that way! I have seen wooden “Lego” bricks before, but as most eco friendly items seem to be it costs a fortune! Our biggest problem is going to be the supermarket for going plastic-free and I begrudge paying loads more to be environmentally friendly. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind spending slightly more, but seems daft to spend a great deal more and unfair.

In the salon I am aiming for a plastic free shelf! I moan about Tesco enough that I feel I should take the first move. It’s not going to be easy. I currently have in bulk nail varnish remover, I am able to do refills on that if you have your own bottle. I need to have a really good think about what I am going to stock. Please note I am not an open salon. It’s by appointment only. I am not an open shop.

.Jessica is in her final year of infants school now and going to be doing for first SATS this year! Not that we have told her she has exams. Her school is great and they are very laid back about them, so the kids shouldn’t even be a aware they are taking them.

Last year I de-cluttered the house and cut back on our spending as our new year resolution. It’s been great and now just feels natural. I am amazed by how many people have no idea how much they spend on food a month! I still have a lot more de-cluttering to do sadly.

Chat soon,

Liz

Here are a few of my fav alternatives to plastic items. Most of them remind me of childhood.
