Baking bread (without the plastic)

July 16, 2015

I'm not a big bread eater but my family members are. They'll easily scoff a loaf in a day or two and the waste from plastic wrapped supermarket loaves was driving me nuts. I needed to start making bread from scratch…read on.

My guilty secret...

June 25, 2015

As Plastic Free July looms, I have a confession to make…at home, I'm not quite Plastic Free. I know, I know, we blog about Plastic Free-ness all the time. Surely, I must be Plastic Free by now? Well… I'm not quite there yet. I'm what you'd call a Plastic Free Wannabe. But I really, really wannabe!

Be a doo-doo gooder

May 28, 2015

We're huge fans of WGAC (Who Gives a Crap) - the ultimate 'hipster' brand of recycled loo roll with some serious eco credentials. They donate 50% of their profits to charity Wateraid helping to provide sanitation to disadvantaged places around the globe. They use 100% recycled post consumer waste (think BPA free) and there's no chlorine, inks, dyes or perfumes. And it's fun - I mean check it out - the packaging really is way too fancy to throw away so you can have heaps of fun trying to come up with the best ways to recycle it. Check out these crazy cats…errr well dogs, from WGAC's entertaining Insta feed (it seems loo roll of any persuasion needs a cute doggie ad).

Dear Australia Post...

Dear Australia Post,

We have a terrific idea for you. We really think you'll like it. Imagine if you were to launch an eco version of your parcel post service. One where you incentivise people to reduce their carbon footprint instead of penalising the ones that do.

Easy Cheesy Bikkie Bites

August 08, 2014

Striving to be plastic free is fine on a good day when I'm super organised, the weather's good and I've had a reasonable amount of sleep but life doesn't always work that way once small fry come on the scene. You know the day....the one where I would have whipped up some healthy homebaked snacks for our trip to town but we had to spend half an hour finding the other shoe (only to discover that the dogs found it first and so we had to pick out another pair but those shoes don't fit anymore…). Or those days when the spare hand I had to bake and pack snacks was occupied carrying the stainless steel water bottles, extra clothes, packages to post plus the newly built airplane made from cardboard scraps that absolutely has to come. It takes time and effort to be plastic free perfect.

(almost) Plastic Free with Kids

July 20, 2014

So I've been trying really hard to give Plastic Free July a go but, with kids, by jingo it's challenging. Now don't get me wrong, total kudos to those wonderful mums I see on facebook and pinterest, you know the ones... They buy only bulk produce and spend weekends at the growers market. "Oh we wouldn't dream of using store bought plastic wrapped bread" they say while they turn out perfect loaf of organic spelt sourdough and pop yet another tray of sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free superfood muesli bars in the oven but the fact is, I am not that mum - yet.
