Eco Fluffy Mama Blog – with a strong focus on reusable menstrual products

Hi there, my name is Tamsin and I am the creator of the blog, Eco Fluffy Mama. My blog is based on Green Living, with a strong focus on reusable menstrual products and zero waste. I also write about my life as someone with multiple chronic illnesses. I am 29 years old and live in rural Suffolk with my son and fiance.

I am extremely passionate about reusable menstrual products, and helping others understand why disposables are bad for the planet and our health.

Projects-

I really enjoy helping others, and am currently working on distributing reusable menstrual products to charities that work with homeless people, and those living below the breadline. In 2015, I created a campaign called Ditch The Disposables – I worked with the UK’s leading retailers for Reusable Menstrual Products, and between us we generated 122 brand new menstrual cups to donate between the 2 charities that the campaign has sponsored.

For 2017, I am hoping to run another campaign to help more charities give reusable menstrual products to the people they help. This will eliminate waste, and help those in need to always have something to manage their period.

And the Pf U.K. Directory is…?
…a directory of UK-based groups, organisations businesses and individuals who are responding to the problems presented by the misuse of plastic. That does not mean anti-plastic necessarily but certainly plastic-problem aware.
The DIRECTORY is to promote their fantastic work. Read more here…

About Plastic Free UK

I am compiling a directory of UK-based groups, organisations businesses and individuals who are responding to the problems presented by the misuse of plastic. That does not mean anti-plastic necessarily but certainly plastic-problem aware.

Why?

It is becoming increasingly apparent that though plastic is a massively useful product, it has a dark side. Plastic pollution is emerging as one of the major ecological challenges of the next decade – we need to start looking for some solutions, and quickly. A total ban on all plastics is not a realistic or even a desirable goal. Some plastic products are worth the (properly managed) environmental costs.

Others are not.

What is unnecessary is of course open to debate but one that is becoming increasingly relevent. And there are lots great people out there doing just that; debating and proposing all manner of exciting solutions that range from personal plastic boycotts to advanced techno fixes. Some focus on primarily on plastic issues, for others it is an incidental – but for all it is a consideration.

I want to feature U.K. based initiatives that are tackling the growing problems of plastic abuse – one each month to create a directory of UK-based plastic aware projects, refuseniks, trash slashers, businesses and the rest.

The DIRECTORY is to promote their work.

I hope that by sharing information and providing a forum for a plastic-aware community we can;

  • contribute to the growing plastic debate,
  • support and promote plastic aware projects and products,
  • show there is a market for plastic free products and services,
  • document the growing concern about the problems of plastic abuse.promote and support plastic aware people and projects
  • help others tackle and reduce the plastic in their lives
  • encourage the provision of plastic free alternative products
  • disseminate the latest information about plastic and plastic research
  • campaign for a sustainable use of plastic and for cleaner plastics

Wales Plastic Free Lent

When did our lives become so plastic? Plastic chairs, plastic cups, plastic toys, plastic packaged food; where does it all go? In our little family of 5 with 3 small children, we recycle as much as we can but still, our bins heave. Looking at the contents of our waste bin, much of that is plastic food packaging. We are not alone as 60% of household waste is packaging. Our oceans swirl with billions of pounds of plastic, with sea birds and mammals being killed in abundance. Recycling is not the answer because once it is in existence, plastic never goes away and virtually every piece of plastic ever produced is still here in some shape or form. We have given up buying plastic for Lent and are really interested in how this will affect our daily lives. We will let you know how it goes!’

We will give up using plastics for lent. We plan to get an organic box, go to the butchers with our own Tupperware, use the milkman and also try to find a solution to the many other plastic dilemmas posed in a family with small children.’

Devon & Sarah

My name is Sarah, I live in Devon, and I write about my adventures towards a more environmentally friendly life and how I combine this with parenting (trying to be gentle and respectful to both the planet and my children). At the start of 2017 I decided to try to achieve zero-waste to landfill. See how I am getting on at www.facebook.com/rhubarbandrunnerbeans
