Gardening is such a joy. Even more so when it’s plastic free
Don’t have a garden? Nothing to stop you from growing some herbs even a few lettuces on your window sill. Don’t have a window sill? We have found some seed grenades for that derelict bit of land by the canal that has been bugging you for ages.
So no more excuses – come and hang out in our virtual potting shed for a while.

One of the real joys of buying #plasticfree is sourcing the stuff in local shops. The excitement when you see milk in glass bottle in the newsagents is beyond words.
However sometime you have to buy on line. Most of the products featured have an online option to buy. Though we try to link with business we know we cannot always do this. Then we try to find a similar product on Amazon.
Amazon is a very dirty word at the moment and I thought long and hard before suggesting them. Heres why I went ahead….. No we are not entirely happy with Amazons recent history. However, we have always found their service to be good and their packaging usually compostable.
If you buy a product via this link we do get an affiliation fee for this. This is not why we do it.

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.
