The Joy of Doing Nothing – Ethical Advent Day 24

Christmas Eve is upon us, and the traditional plans (whatever they may be, and however you choose to celebrate) for many have been changed. It may be a quieter, less sociable Christmas for many of us, and I just want to make the statement that you won’t hear from many places – it’s OK to…

Stay Safe this Christmas – Ethical Advent Day 21

Welcome to Day 21 of my Ethical Advent series 2020. Today is far from the normal Christmas message I’d be sending out, but then 2020 has been far from a normal year! In light of the pandemic, and various restrictions here and around the world, many of us will be spending Christmas in a different…

Tea. Most of us love tea. How do you drink yours, green, black, loose or in tea bags? Regardless of the type or style, I prefer mine to come without a side of plastic. In fact, I’d prefer mine to be completely zero waste – naked as the day it was picked from the tree….

Conscious Christmas Gift Guide – Ethical Advent Day 1

After a very strange year, December has crept up on us and blasted us with Christmas – ready or not! This year, I’m feeling the need to be more festive at home, just to mix it up a bit and get some lights and brightness, and a change of indoor scenery. I’ve therefore decided to…
