Green Living Family Style...
Whether you are part of a large family network, have recently become a single parent, look after grandchildren, or work within an educational setting – green living ideals can seem out of reach when there are kids involved.
Take a look through some of our hints and tips, tried and tested blog posts, recommended local businesses and upcoming events.
Get the family excited and involved and you will be amazed at how easy change can be when everyone is on-board.
Encourage a love of nature, save money, burn off some energy and enjoy a change of scenery. We protect what we love.
Use Your Freezer
With a little bit of planning, bulk cooking is a great way to use ingredients when they are abundant and save you hassle when you have a hangry toddler to deal with!
Low Waste Crafts
Keep boxes, toilet rolls and packaging paper for rainy day crafts. Say to no glitter, foam and stickers.
Ditch those wetwipes. Reusable wipes are much simpler than you may think AND they will save you money.
However beautiful that pram is or nifty that gadget is, think twice before buying. Do you really need it?
Learn to Say No
Be firm but kind with friends and family. Stand firm to stroppy toddlers or teenagers wanting the latest gadget.
