At the end of a long winter, Easter feels like a great opportunity to celebrate nature coming back to life; embrace the longer days and warmer weather, do some Spring cleaning, fill the house with spring flowers, and create some seasonally-inspired recipes in the kitchen.
And as part of a recent collaboration with Wales Recycles on their BeMightyRecycle / Bydd Wych, Ailgylcha campaign, I wanted to share some tips to make this year’s festivities a more eco-friendly affair – by making sure your Easter recyclables go on to live a new life of their own, too.
It’s a sad fact that Christmas is a time when we all create more waste. But this means it’s also a prime opportunity to make little changes that can really add up. I’ve teamed up with Wales Recycles on their BeMightyRecycle / Bydd Wych, Ailgylcha campaign to share some easy wins for a more eco-friendly 2020 Christmas.
We all know we should be doing our bit to cut food waste at home. But when it comes to the stuff we can’t eat (like teabags, coffee grounds, and eggshells) we can still have a positive environmental impact by making sure we recycle them.
As more of us seek to minimise our impact on the planet, choosing organic can offer a simple, trusted way to be more sustainable in our daily lives. This month, the Organic September movement aims to draw attention to the many benefits of organic food and farming, which include supporting biodiversity and wildlife, helping to combat climate change, providing the highest standards of animal welfare, and reducing exposure to pesticides.
These are some of my favourite ways you can show your support this month, from drinking organic wine, to eating out in local restaurants, and getting back to nature.
