Potato Peel Cookies

By Anna Pitt / April 3, 2020 / 0 Comments

If you’ve started Rachelle’s fantastic Waste Less, Enjoy More During Lockdown course you’ll love this recipe. Mr Pitt has never really been a fan of the potato skin crisps I make, so the skins were often ending up in the compost these days as I can’t eat them all myself and we are not expecting…

Preparing for Self Isolation – a Zero Waste (and No Panic Buying) Shopping List!

By Anna Pitt / March 9, 2020 / 2 Comments

Mr Pitt came home the other day and told me a colleague of his said he’d been to the supermarket and the shelves were empty. Panic buying? It seems. Coronavirus is constantly in the media. Conferences are being postponed or cancelled, people are postponing travel plans, some countries are banning large gatherings – France says…

Lentil bake – the IBS friendly way

By Anna Pitt / February 27, 2020 / 0 Comments

I recently had the experience of cooking for a friend who has to avoid a whole load of staple ingredients that I use (and she used to use) all the time. She can’t eat any pulses that have skins. I had never thought about pulses having skins! Apparently red lentils don’t.  She can’t eat onions,…

The decade that circular becomes mainstream

By Anna Pitt / January 14, 2020 / 0 Comments

I was delighted to see this at the start of 2020. We have a new decade so let’s make this the decade when sustainable circular economy principles become mainstream.

Going Glitter Free this Christmas

By Anna Pitt / December 4, 2019 / 0 Comments

Yay! It’s December, so I’m officially allowed to talk about Christmas and wear my lovely second hand Christmas t-shirt. My family ban all discussion of Christmas until December, but I was discussing greener alternatives to Christmas at Naked Wines back in October.  And one of my favourite tips that they shared was doing a Secret Santa…

I’ve worked for several years now as a “Love Food Hate Waste Champion” for Oxfordshire County Council. However, earlier this year I left Oxfordshire for pastures new and was very sorry not to be continuing with this role.

Anna’s ZWW – Day 5

By Anna Pitt / September 6, 2019 / 0 Comments

I’m really glad that this Zero Waste Week is showing the connection between reducing waste and the climate crisis. I think a lot of people would agree with me that life has got a bit manic. “I’m so busy”. Being busy is often cited as the reason people waste stuff. I have often thought that…

Anna’s ZWW – Day 4

By Anna Pitt / September 5, 2019 / 0 Comments

Climate change in your bathroom! This is the biggest struggle for me. I seam to accumulate packaging in the bathroom. The best thing I did in my efforts at greening up our home was to put a recycling container on my landing so that it saved me time sorting out the bathroom bin. Last year,…

By Anna Pitt / September 4, 2019 / 0 Comments

OMG I think I’m contributing to that 30bn of unused clothes with my wardrobe. I’ve really noticed lately that I wear very few of my clothes. So today I’m going to think about what to keep and what should go. I had a good long look at what was in there and I have three…
