What better way to start this blog than with Zero Waste Week? A whole week dedicated to reducing waste. It’s been going for 10 years and technically I have taken part for the past three years but I’m not entirely sure last year’s failure counts!
Zero Waste Week always makes me look at the way that I live and the things that we do as a family, to see if there’s anything we can change to reduce our impact on the planet.
Three years ago we worked at getting D out of disposable nappies by potty training. The week itself was a disaster but we had cracked it by the end of the month. Two years ago I pledged to have a handmade christmas, and looked at various gift and gift wrapping ideas.
This year I am looking at reducing waste through making, mending and upcycling. I will be posting every day during the week and also posting content on twitter with the other ambassadors, so please join us.
