How can YOU create change and make a difference?
All of us who saw Blue Planet II watched in horror at the dead baby whale, and the birds with stomachs full of plastic.
And some of us probably vowed to take action.
But then you go to your kitchen to make a cuppa, and take out your plastic milk bottle, or open a packet of biscuits, and you suddenly see ALL the plastic. I mean, it's everywhere. Our food is packaged in it, our bathrooms are rammed full of plastic bottles and tubes, and don't even get me started on the kids...
You are NOT alone...

I wanted to get support for plastic reduction, as well as ideas for non plastic alternative products, such as deodorants, etc.
My changes have been switching to more environmentally friendly products such as Ecover, and I’m in the process of changing to Eco eggs and doorstep milk delivery and I’m replacing my toothbrush with a bamboo one. Also, I’ve been making my own fave (occasional) foodie buys, such as M&S pasta and chicken and chicken arrabiata.
The emails are really good in informing me of the effects of plastic on the environment, and the articles are inspiring too.
PS I'm changing from plastic bottles of sauces, etc, to glass, surprisingly they're often cheaper!
I kept meaning to do something about my plastic use and I hoped that this would inspire me (it did!)
I’ve just done my first order of Who Gives a Crap loo roll (I even managed to get my colleagues to join in so it’s a bulk order).
We’ve re-started a weekly veg box order to avoid plastic wrapped fruit and veg from the supermarket and I've started making homemade hummus to avoid plastic tubs
The daily emails have encouraged me to stay on track and also given me a great resource to use when I want/need to buy plastic free alternatives.
Why Plastic Free (ish)?
I don't know about you, but the idea of a plastic free life feels a looooong way off. Everywhere I look I see plastic, and my kids seem to have some kind of magnetic attraction for the stuff.
If it was just me on my own, I reckon I could be pretty draconian, and maybe even fit my plastic waste into an Instagram-worthy mason jar. But it's not. I have a busy family life, and make a whole host of compromises every single day.
That's the reality for most of us.
And I don't want to the ideal, the perfection, of 'plastic free' to put anyone off starting.
This guide, my philosophy, is all about starting from where you are, and taking one step at a time.
What do I actually get?
When you buy The Essential Guide to a Plastic-Free (ish) home, you'll be re-directed to a thank you page where you'll find a link to download your e-guide. There's no physical book, it's all online (keeping the carbon footprint low!)
What if I want to upgrade to the other option?
No problem, just drop me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can sort that out 🙂
Surely there's way more action to take than this?
Yes! You're so right.
But if I were to produce a comprehensive guide containing every single thing you could possibly do, I'm thinking there's going to be some overwhelm there.
This guide will get you started, it will show you how to identify the changes you want to make, and give you ideas to take action.
It's not intended as the Plastic Free (ish) guide to life, the universe and everything.
It IS intended to gently nudge you from a place of inaction, frustration and guilt, and help you to step into the power that your actions have to create the kind of world you want.
