How to buy Cheese and other Deli items Zero Waste

When it comes to buying cheese and deli items, this is my favourite part of my shopping journey. I say a journey, because I don’t just go to one supermarket in order to buy my weekly food shop. Instead, I start at the butchers, followed by the fishmonger and the bakery. Just before I move on to veg and the rest of my shopping, I come to the deli shop.  You would think that this takes me a long time, but it doesn’t add that much time to my weekly shop. Even if it did, I welcome slower paced shopping. Why does buying food have to be so rushed and full of stress?

Zero Waste Hair Care

The days when I had a basket full of half used hair care products are long gone. Conditioners, hair foams, gels, salt water sprays, heat protection sprays and millions of other things were sat in my bathroom, used once in a blue moon and collecting dust. Fast forward a few years and my hair care kit consists of only three items. I use these items daily and take them with me everywhere I go including hiking and cycling trips. There is nothing to collect dust anymore!

                    The bread and the bread makers working hard behind the scenes 

Sometimes all you want is a nice crusty piece of toast. One of those which crunches in your mouth as you take the first bite. Spread a bit of nice butter on top and you are officially at peace. Sounds familiar?

How to reduce your plastic waste on a climbing trip to Kalymnos

If you are a climber, chances are that you have heard or been to Kalymnos. Words like paradise, incredible, world-class climbing, excellent food and friendly locals spring to mind. If you speak to your fellow climbers who have been fortunate enough to spend some time there, they will all have this all-knowing smile and misty look in their eyes. I have just recently got back from a 10-day trip and I can report that it really is that good.
