Sustainable Products / Projects / Ideas

This year I am going to try to:

-Be more healthy (look after myself properly and get back into dance/swim&sauna/berries!)
-Start playing music again
-Travel more
-Get more in touch with nature
-Get more in touch with my 'inner-self' - whatever that is -  (through yoga/meditation)

(Me on the right, taking an evening break by the fjord while working on an organic farm/ outdoor centre in Norway with

There are also a few new brands/projects aiming to achieve similar goals:

(most of these are in the UK and the Netherlands, because that is where I spend most of my time...)

My Current Obsessions:

Blueberry Jam
Oats (especially cheesy oatcakes from Nairns)
Eating Seasonally

Some little ideas for more sustainable, happy and peaceful living:

-Wrapping presents? - why not wrap them in recycled newspaper?
-Put a brick in your toilet ( Brick in toilet info and How To )
-Use natural ingredients as beauty products (will maybe write a post about this later)
-Wear a jumper or cuddle instead of putting up the heating (great for your heating bills and your conscience!)
-Make a mini vegetable patch 
-Recycle old clothes, or take them to a charity shop
-Take your time to eat, and try to make your food from scratch - it is healthier and can be a nice group activity! (Plus that way you know exactly what went into your meal).
-Take a breather. A few minutes each day to relax and reflect.

Peace out.

Heart It
