Eco tips XXVI, XXVII: grow your own!

Apologies that tip 26 went unpublished yesterday; I was unable to download it then, but it came quietly this evening. I was looking at herb seeds just yesterday, but ran out of time to sow them.

Daily Eco Tip 27

Grow your own little garden on your window sill with some herb seeds. They are easy to manage and when the time is right you can pluck them fresh and throw them into your meals. 

Daily Eco Tip 26

Hair products as well as face ones are now available in bars. Rubbing the bar produces the same result as their liquid counterpart and can sometimes even last longer.

Daily eco tips XXIII, XXIV: fasting from fast food

I think we’ve caught up with ourselves again.

Daily Eco Tip 24

Invest in mouthwash tablets and store them in a plastic-free container. You can also purchase refill packs that come in compostable packaging. Just dissolve the tablets in some water and gargle.

Daily Eco Tip 23

Reducing the amount of takeaways you have monthly will not only help your diet but also reduce the amount of plastic waste. If you want some alternatives you can look for new tasty recipes you haven’t tried before. Or try some recipes that taste exactly like your local takeaway spot.

Eco Tip XX – or a better idea …

How many plastic razors do you think you have gone through in your lifetime? Probably in the hundreds- a lot right? You can stop that number from growing by investing in a reusable metal razor. They are high quality and all you need to do is replace the metal razor blade. Simple!

A much better idea would be to grow a beard, which

gives you permanent face cover into the bargain!
