This is my humble effort to reduce my plastic consumption and waste for Zero Waste Week 2020.
I've been very poorly this year and hope to support the Zero Waste movement with zest and vigour next year.
Day 1 of #ZeroWasteWeek, I'm sharing re-usable masks.
It's been 6 months since the Covid 19 pandemic swept the world.
The message remains the same wash your hands, wear a mask and keep your distance.
Stay safe everyone!
In an attempt to remove plastic cups from my life.
I have stopped drinking tea and keep a bamboo eco cup in my bag.
Many thanks to my sister Irem for this gorgeous William Morris bamboo eco mug.

Over the past 4 years I have discovered, tried and tested many zero waste bathroom alternatives.
I'm still using the following zero waste bathroom alternatives.
Organic Loofah instead of a plastic one
Organic handmade soap instead of hand wash
Herbal Tooth powder instead of toothpaste
Bamboo Toothbrush instead of plastic tooth brush and
Miswaak (cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree)
Organic Herbal Shampoo.
Thank you to my sister for this lovely William Morris cotton bag.
On days 6 and 7 I spent the day in the garden enjoying the weather.

Zero Waste week was founded by Rachelle Strauss in 2008 and began as a National UK Campaign.Campaigns last a week and take place annually during the first full week in September.
The campaign runs predominantly on social media and the website ZeroWasteWeek to reach a community of like-minded people who want to reduce residential or commercial waste, reuse materials and recycle as much as possible. The aim of the campaign is to help householders, businesses, schools and community groups increase recycling, reduce landfill waste and participate in the circular economy – in alignment with European recommendations and Directives.

In 2015 my Creative Director Helen Barlow Scott and I worked to design The Little Fair Trade Stamps which would be included in the launch of The Little Fair Trade Shop website Quarter 1, 2016.
In this blog I explain what each stamp means and introduce you to a fairtrade producer who has aligned their business to implement and promote a living wage, decent working conditions, transparency and accountability, empowerment, environmental sustainability, dignity and self respect for all.
This month I continued to heal from surgery.
Completed the prestigious World Literacy Foundation Ambassador 2020 Program and
Attended Ethical Consumer Week 2020 via virtual sessions.
