Saved chicken bones and vegetable scraps can make easy, packaging-free, low-waste chicken stock (aka bone broth) in the slow cooker.
We reduced our loads from an average of three per week to one load in two and a half weeks. By only washing the things that absolutely need it, I am reminded again of the benefits of NOT washing everything out of habit.
Plastic Free July and Pie July are over for another year. Here's how they went for us.
One year after purchasing my menstrual cup, and 30-odd years since my first period, I have just had my first ever plastic-free period. It took a while, but I finally found a way that works for me and my body.
Bringing your own containers can extend to more than reusable coffee cups, water bottles and even bulk food stores. Try taking a container to your local butcher, deli and lunch bar to save on single-use plastic bags, paper bags, plastic and foam takeaway containers.
Beautiful bowls, delicious soup and funds for an organisation that does good work. Plus Plastic Free July and Pie July updates.
I wanted to get better at making pastry from scratch, so I invented "Pie July". Feel free to join in!
