I was recently filmed for the news on our National TV station RTE. The segment was about the use of brown bins (compost bins) in Ireland, which apparently is on the decline. The piece equated food waste with brown bin usage but i made the point (which was edited out) that if someone is doing […]
I was a huge fan of Miffy when i was younger so i couldn’t resist including the uber cute Miffy inspired bunny garland from Mini Eco. They even include a template so you can make your own.
It’s that time of the year again; spring cleaning, and this year lets ditch all those nasty chemicals and clean effectively without putting our health at risk. I am a minimalist at heart so I like to use the least ingredients possible! You’d be surprised at just how little you need to clean your house […]
So guilt-free undies, do they exist? Are they hideous? Are they expensive? Well firstly i’m happy to report that they do exist and they’re not at all hideous (well most of them) and you seem to be able to get them for the same price as an average good-quality bra, which is very encouraging. As […]
It’s mother’s day in Ireland this weekend and in an effort to avoid that awful plastic wrapping you get with most shop bought mothers day cards I’m making my own.

I’ve been trying to move towards Zero Waste for about a year now and I’ve learned a lot on my journey. Even though it’s taken quite a lot of research to find alternative products in no / compostable / recyclable packaging the changes haven’t been as hard as i thought. This is partly down to […]
On these dark wet days summer can seem like a life time way. One way to bring it closer is to start planning for that summer glory by selecting which annuals or biennials to plant. Annuals are plants that only live for one season, they germinate, flower and die all in one year. Biennials germinate […]
For the life of me i cannot find palm-oil free crackers in compostable / recyclable packaging so I’ve had to learn to make our own and would you believe it’s dead easy, and quick!
