Lets leave a waste free world for our children and grandchildren.
I have created this website to help support you in becoming more waste free at home with your family.
Often we believe we need to change everything to make a difference, in the long term this is true but in the short term it seems too hard. What we forget is that if we all just make a small seemingly insignificant change every day the results will be hugely significant. It is the old saying...Take care of the penny's and the pounds will look after themselves....
Making decisions as a parent can be difficult
I know it can be very confusing and quite a time consuming decision making decisions when you are having your first baby because there are so many options available, but hopefully after reading through my website guides you will be able to confidently make the right decision or come along to a workshop and get educated.learn more >>
