Yay! It’s December, so I’m officially allowed to talk about Christmas and wear my lovely second hand Christmas t-shirt.

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…

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,…

“Please don’t leave before we’ve had a chance to have a chat about something else. There’s a question, I’ve been longing to ask you.” I was at the opening night of an exhibition that I’d put together for our local history archive. (You see I don’t only talk rubbish!)

I co-hosted an RSA Sustainable Households subgroup workshop with Nicola Mansfield, Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Fashion at the University of Westminster. During the workshop we…
