Living simply - how to declutter responsibly.

The Marie Kondo effect has resonated with many, sparking a mass decluttering by people all over the world.

The Pits; why you should go natural under the arm.

THE PITS! They're a smelly bunch. Naturally, we all want our friends to stay close and our enemies closer, so have no doubt been rather UNnaturally slathering aluminium based antiperspirant deodorants on our underarms to keep the sweat at bay.

Disposable vs Reusable - 1 year of baby wipes

Disposable vs Reusable - 1 year of baby wipes

With an average of 1 pack per week for 1 baby (this would be more if you use wipes for messy hands and faces too) and each pack containing 60 wipes, this creates 3120 wipes in total that can only go to landfill*. Instead, I recommend using 3 packs of The Waste-Free Home reusable wipes (1 x Terry and 2 x Muslin) instead of disposable ones.
