BeeBee & Leaf meets Martin Dorey, author, writer, surfer, campervan owner, speaker, and conservationist. We speak mainly about his work as founder of the #2minutebeachclean movement and foundation, in time for the Great British Beach Clean which is this weekend - 18-21 September.
We are delighted to welcome Christina Hawkes, founder of Greenscents organic laundry & household products to guest write our blog on choosing the best ecofriendly household products.
During the Covid-19 crisis, we have become much more conscious of the cleaning products we buy. We all need household products that do not damage our health or the environment but get rid of harmful bacteria and viruses and this is perfectly possible!
This week has been Zero Waste Week. We have been suggesting some simple swaps you can try making in your home to cut down, or eliminate, waste. Finally, we’re taking a look at our bathroom products. Our bathrooms are filled with plastic - shampoo and shower gel bottles, toothpaste tube, toothbrush, sanitary products, moisturiser bottles, soap dispensers, deodorant cans. It all ends up in landfill.
BeeBee & Leaf meets Jen Gale, eco speaker, author, blogger, festival coordinator, coach, social media influencer, podcaster and founder of Sustainable(ish). We talk about her journey from 'a year of buying to nothing new' to being a leading eco influencer and author. She guides us through the common barriers to eco living, and offers really practical advice for getting started on a more sustainable journey.
It can be daunting when you first start to consider a more sustainable way of living but by making regular small changes, you’re setting yourself up for long-term success. BeeBee & Leaf asked the BeeBee Club: ‘What single use plastic do you struggle to ditch?’ We then also asked you to tell us your best single use plastic swaps and ideas. So here they are – the top struggles, and the top solutions. All to help you transition to plastic free living.
