Switching to bamboo cotton buds!

As we need to use cotton buds dozens of times a day at work (in a veterinary hospital), we have now switched to biodegradable bamboo buds to cut down on our plastic waste!

Milk delivery & yoghurt making

I never buy plastic milk bottles or plastic yoghurt pots because I have a regular milk delivery in reusable glass bottles. I then make my own yoghurt from the milk in a thermos flask and store it in glass jars. I never need to buy yoghurt in plastic pots because each new batch is started using yoghurt from the previous batch. I flavour it with tinned fruit. Simples!

Reuse egg shells to plant seeds

I created little planters for my pepper seeds, using old egg shells and the egg box to hold them in.

It’s super easy and a great idea to do with the kids.

  1. Wash out the old egg shells
  2. Place them in the egg box
  3. Fill each one with compost (this can be from your garden or an old potted plant you have around the house)
  4. Make a small well in the centre of each one
  5. Place 1-2 seeds inside and cover back up with the soil
  6. Give them a little water
  7. Place on to your windowsill
  8. Now, watch them grow!
