  1. I really appreciate the posts where you compile lists of links to ethical and sustainable clothing sites and other businesses – its always a struggle to find clothing that fits my criteria and it makes it so much easier to have somewhere to start! And its how I first found your blog. :)

  7. Amazing that you have been going for five years! I have probably been thinking about starting a blog for the same amount of time but you have gone and done it!

  8. There’s nothing wrong with hippie! As an older reader of your web site I can remember that hippies were one of the first cultural movements to try to live more sustainably and with a strong awareness of ecology and environmentalism.

  9. Congratulations on 5 years! I think I first started reading your blog when I was looking for more ethical clothing options and I’ve found so many great things on here over the years. I like the mix of topics on here and I like that you acknowledge the complexities of ethical shopping and sustainability.

  10. I really like articles on going plastic free. Also if there are tips on using less chemicals around the home (which presumably will also help in going plastic free as less cleaning product is used) I also enjoy reading those. And anything on reusing items from around the home in some way.

  11. I enjoy articles about ethical fashion, which is how I discovered your blog. Where I live I have to endure summers with temperatures in the high 40s so would love to see a post about ethical work appropriate summer clothing for such high temperatures, if such a thing exists, as every time summer comes round all I can find are itsy bitsy viscose and polyester dresses, which I really don’t want to include in my wardrobe!

  14. Congratulations on five years!

    My favourite posts are ones about ethical fashion. This is one of the areas I find it hardest to make real changes in, finding a balance between affordability and buying ethically is really difficult – recommendations are always welcome!

I love it all but if forced to choose, I get most out of the little hints and tips – small changes to make, green cleaning, minimising waste, plastic-free. I also appreciate your 10 Things round-ups – you’ve pointed me in the direction of so many good articles. Thank you, and here’s to the next 5 years 🎂

  27. Hello,

    I have been following you for about six months. I love reading about fashion, zero waste and things to do in Scotland. I think there is so much focus on blogs that are based in England, particularly London, so I love to find blogs that are nearer to me (I live in the Scottish Highlands). I like how you take a flexible approach to being more eco friendly, you make changes like drinking milk alternatives and you don’t put pressure on to your readers to be perfect.

  28. I started following your blog a few years ago as part of my aim to reduce plastic in my life and practice the beliefs I hold. I now find I’m drawn to your articles about ethical living and shopping. Thank you for making it easier to find ethical choices.

  37. Hi Wendy, I have only recently discovered you, possibly via Jen Gale’s social media/podcasts?? I run a deli and we are considering selling bulk food items to cut down on plastic so anything relating to food or reducing plastic is useful to us. I’m also part of a Transition Town so its nice to share ALL of your posts :) thank you for the inspiration. Ten Things are great, I enjoy reading them and finding other links/people to follow, a great promo tool.

    Congrats on your blog anniversary! You are one of my favourite blogs that I follow :)
