Ethical Wardrobe on a Budget Dilemma

As some of you may know I’m on a recycle less, use less plastic journey. I’m also more aware of where I clothes shop from. Many of you also know I’m vegan for the past 5 years having been vegetarian for 14-13 years previously. I think that once you start on one of these journeys they all merge at some point down the same road or different lanes in the same motorway. 

My usual hot weather summer style. Hiking hence rucksack and cap (okay that’s usual as I cycle everywhere). I’m no fashion blogger but a post about fashion requires a clothes photo right?

Shopping for ethical clothes is hard on a budget. I shop on the high street while keeping in mind the fibres the clothes are made from, the environmental impact, where they were made as to the wage and conditions they were made in. I’ve had to meet half way focusing on fibres in some shops.

Summer Reads 2018

I mentioned that I’m getting back more into reading books, putting down my phone and iPad, switching NetFlix and YouTube for paper. I thought it would be fun to share with you my summer reading list! 

One I’ve already finished, two I’m half way though switching out depending on my mood. I should also mention I’m probably an author’s worst nightmare. Like I do with K Dramas or any TV show I’m into I read ahead on recaps. I do this with books too. It doesn’t matter if it’s books I’m Continue reading “Summer Reads 2018”

Cotton Muslin Produce Bags

The clique zero waste produce muslin bags. That save turtles, whales and other marine animals and birds from another mistaken jelly fish plastic bag that might end up in the oceans and seas and subsequent digestive death. Or from land animals and birds the same fate.   

I don’t know why I didn’t order these as the beginning of my recycle less journey. The main reason I didn’t think to. Some in a local organic shop caught my eye, Continue reading “Cotton Muslin Produce Bags”
