This month we are
Voting in the Blog Awards U.K.
Preparing for a plastic-free Christmas
Vote For Me!
To vote for me in the U.K. Blog Awards. Follow this link and cast your vote
Or read the open letter…
Would so appreciate your help with tackling plastic pollution at source. Really easy to do! Just vote for my blog in the in the UK Blog Awards 2017.
I entered the blog for the following reasons:
“Plastic pollution is a huge environmental problem that needs to be addressed at source and soon. Voting for me would raise awareness, help others to reduce their plastic footprint, promote plastic free alternatives, encourage businesses to rethink their packaging and lend support to sustainable solutions. ”
The Public Vote, begins Monday 5th December at 8.00am and is open to Monday 19th December at 10.00am.
Of course the public vote indicates the level of support and interest in the project. As the UK Blog Awards are the “biggest and UK’s longest running programme to recognise influencer talent”, doing well here could really help spread the message that we need to manage plastic pollution and that consumers want to see change.
So please consider voting, asking your friends to vote, sharing this on face book and generally being an all round good egg.
You can vote for the Plastic Is Rubbish project via my profile page on the UK Blog Awards website. Though not until the 5th obvs!
The Blog Awards website notes that “votes will not be accepted until 8.00am on Monday 8th December 2016. ” Which I think means you can vote from the 5th onwards but they wont be shown till the 8th?
Lets tackle plastic pollution at source together
Plastic Free Christmas
As for the rest of December….sigh! But lets not give way! Gird those loins and get busy. My first job is making mincemeat. You can see our sweet mincemeat recipe here. Call back tomorrow …. or may be the day after to see how we got on!
Going out carolling? Here’s a song you might like to learn!
I am busy buying my passive-aggressive, pointed, eco gifts. These cotton produce bags are for you, you crazy, double-bagging freak! No – not really! These are lovely gifts for lovely people …. who doesn’t want to sponsor a hippo? But should you go really hardcore here are some perfectly good reasons from Unistash to cutdown on presents….
And as for the other festive stuff – as we all know by now, plastic isn’t just for Christmas. Sadly. So here are a few tips on how to ensure your festive rubbish can be composted to feed next years plants.
Apologies for the huge amounts of clothing I posted last month. I am way behind with documenting my plastic-free, compostable wardrobe. And while I am sorry, there is no doubt that this month you will be seeing more of my handywork as I try to get write ups posted before the end of the year.
