In by Lisa ColeLeave a Comment

Winning at Winter is full of little ideas that will help you make winter much easier.

Including a full upcycling tutorial, recipes, ideas for saving money and gentle decluttering tips.

The long winter months can drag on. There is a flurry of activity for Christmas that can leave you feeling flat afterwards.  You might make and break new years resolutions and February sometimes feels pretty bleak.

We have collaborated and written a book with daily themes and a blank calendar to fill in with daily actions. Each daily theme has a list of actionable ideas for you to try. Each action will help you make a small difference to your life and the world.

You can pick activities you are interested in because you want to do them, not because you think you should. As long as you give some of these things a go, we can guarantee you that at the end of 4 weeks you will have made a difference to your life and been kinder to the planet.

Low Waste Christmas Printed Paperback

In by Lisa ColeLeave a Comment

Christmas is traditionally a time of giving and of spending time with loved ones. Increasingly over the years it has become more about spending money and it is easy to get drawn into consumerism, spending and even debt.

It doesn’t have to be like that; you can have a really lovely Christmas without spending much at all and the knock-on effect is that it can be better for the environment too.

This book has ideas for easy to make presents and decorations, seasonal activities, lovely ways to connect with your family and friends and will help you prepare for next year too.

“It’s worth buying the book as it’s packed full of good ideas, hints and tips.” Dina
