If there’s ever a time to get started with the zero-waste movement, it’s now! This July, we want to encourage you to be part of a global movement to reduce single-use plastic waste. To help you get started, here are some tips for reducing and reusing single-use plastics this July, and from now on!
Father’s Day is just around the corner if you call the US or UK home. It’s one of those days where you don’t want to spend a fortune, but a little bit of acknowledgment for everything your Dad or father figure has done is always appreciated. Gifting something you’ve made yourself is the best way to win him over, you’ll be the favourite in no time.
World Milk Day has been celebrated this week which gave us a timely reminder of why we really do love the creamy white stuff. More and more, milk is getting a bad reputation as we shift to an environmentally focused lens on our food and beverages. While we wholeheartedly agree that we need to reduce our consumption of certain products, we do think some things are still ok in moderation. Milk is one of these, with its nutritional benefits it’s a product that is hard to beat. Plus, without milk we can’t make cheese!!
Fermented foods are good, this we know. Our gut microbiome loves to get a good dose of probiotic bacteria so it can keep itself nice and balanced. But what’s even better than just fermented foods?
Mother’s Day is one of those days that can so easily creep up on you and while we tend to shy away from the commercialisation of it all, it is so nice to recognise Mum for just doing what she does. We think it’s the thought that counts and whether you choose to give her a gift, make her something or just put aside some time to spend together, she’ll appreciate the thought.
Every year on the 25th of April, Australia and New Zealand stand still for a moment and commemorate our fallen soldiers. Whether it’s through attending a dawn service and hearing the bag pipes play into the sunrise or taking a moment to eat an ANZAC cookie and think about why we have them; most people will pause for thought.
This year while doing this, we encourage you to stop a little longer and think about how often you do just that, stop.
