So the sun sets on an awesome year and 2015 is brimming with possibilities. Through 2014, our E'phy followers have browsed our blogs, shared our social, mailed us fabulous snaps of their newly opened Ecolosophy goodies and so much more - you are simply beautiful human beings. Here's a snippet of our wonderful first year in business with our favourite pics, posts and tags...
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.
So, how d'you go with Supermarket Free Month this April? Are you a fully fledged 'super-freegan' now - a fearless crusader who rejects large corporate supermarkets in favour of smaller local retailers and producers? Or maybe you hadn't heard about being supermarket free? Well, it's pretty unlikely you're all fully converted in a few weeks but Supermarket Free Month certainly gives us an opportunity to ask where our food comes from, how far it travels and what the real cost of convenience food is.
