I have decided that I'd like to live a more sustainable, eco friendly 2017. So here's to eggs that wash your clothes without detergent, handbags that are made of recycled and sustainable materials and shoes that are not just throw away generic sized fashion fodder.
I am embracing 'less is more'.
We can't change everything but we may as well make a start!
Have you measured your feet recently? Thanks to a kickstarted campaign for Charlie Butler shoes, I did the Charlie Butler foot measure.
My feet are as wide as the street but my new shoes, when they arrive, will take my wedged feet into account and build a shoe which will fit me perfectly. I even asked for a red sole. Vegan, hand made and gorgeous. Cannot wait.
Why spend a fortune polluting the planet with grey water from detergents in your washing machine if you don't have to? Get an Ecoegg! Skip the rinse function on the machine and get greener without animal testing. I washed the dogs blankets today without the usual chemical pouch, just an egg with some lightly smelling balls in it.
Result. Happy out.
Today made me happy on all levels. I banish the January resolution guilts and the bad weather blues and I embrace small but affective changes, new handbags as long as they don't kill and nice things as long as they ecologically sustain us x
Happy new year xxx
