Please note that none of these suggestions replace medical advice and if you need to take medicine’s do so. Living plastic free is great but being healthy is better. That said….
For those of you into self medicating, the BBC are showing you how to grow, harvest and prepare your own herbal remedies.
The show is called Grow Your Own Drugs ( saucy) and features James Wong. He is an ethnobotanist and not, and he was very clear about this, a hippy – despite the bare feet and the beads. Hey far be it from me to stereo type.
Any way the boy mixed up some remedies from flowers and weeds and seemed to know what he was talking about. Moreover he is an all time sweetie even though he is a SCIENTIST and not a hippy. Got a very nice kitchen too. There is book full of recipes to accompany the show..
As you know from my own creamy exploits, making your own cosmetics is a great way to cut down dramatically on your plastic – making your own remedies will obviously do the same. You can find my favourite recipes right here.

WHY CUT PLASTIC
About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items.
Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
