The accidental environmentalist

I think I know what a pregnant elephant feels like. And not just down to the vast quantities of Green & Blacks that has been getting me through the past few days. After 22 months of gestation (or incubation, I’m not exactly sure of the difference) I’m about to give birth to my own baby and it promises to be just as agonising.



Perhaps it’s all part of the whole ‘pleasure/pain’ principle. The pain I seem to be constantly enduring (violins please......) and the pleasure I assume is… Continue

Upcycling With My Green Lipstick



The term upcycling is frequently being used in the world of ethical fashion. So what exactly does it mean? Upcycling is re-using materials and items to re-create something that improves the value of the original. Upcycling retains elements of the original item. For example, transforming an old shirt into a fabulous dress. Upcycling itself is not new. Hopefully, now that it has been given a label it will create more awareness for… Continue
