Happy to have a post about going plasticless featured in Henpicked.
Henpicked is an online magazine “about sharing the wisdom of women”. Any cheek from you lot and you are going home! It started with a group of friends meeting up and talking who “realised there must be a huge number of wise women out there” so created an online forum for “the sort of things that women over 40 would be interested in.”
They don’t exclude younger women or even men “if they have something fascinating to tell us.” Well I am not young, or a man, but I think we can agree I am fascinating so here are my wise words.
Signing up online is free, you can comment on articles, contribute to the forum even write articles for them. They are fun so why not give em a whirl. And do feel free to leave very enthusiastic comments. On my post that is!
Got a nice write up in Green Parenting this month.
Inspiring people who have gone plastic free
Polythene Pam and Village Boy, a pair of bloggers from Yorkshire have documented their boycott of (almost) all things plastic on their blog Plastic Is Rubbish. They also have great resources on their website for finding out about plastic alternatives, what plastic they cannot live without and why you should consider cutting down your plastic consumption too.
Thank you and we like you too. Not only are there lots of interesting articles but they also attract some interesting advertisers. I was particuarly taken with Honour Your Flow selling woollen reusable sanitary towels.
I have asked them for more info which I hope they send.
