Ten Things

green blog

Hiya!  It’s been a quiet week – I’ve had writer’s block and words and ideas haven’t been flowing easily.  Rather than trying to force things I’ve caught up on the odd jobs around my home that often get pushed to the side when I am in full writing/photographing flow.  If anyone has any tips for overcoming writer’s block or if there is something you want me to write about on the blog then let me know!

Whilst I haven’t been writing, I have been reading!  Here are 10 good articles from this week:

1.  Hurricane Harvey is exactly the time to talk about climate change.

2. 10 things you can do to shop more sustainably.

3.  What do bakers trapped by flooding do?  Bake for people affected by the flooding.

4. #greenpixiepotus

5. The businesses curbing plastics waste.

6.  The Mirror covered the zero waste shop in Totnes positively, and I can’t help but hope it’s the start of a sea-change on how the mainstream media cover people trying to do good, environment wise.

7.  Want to travel the world with Weleda?  This way, my friend.

8.  A cheat sheet to living plastic free.

9. The world’s toughest plastic bag ban – four years in prison or a $41,000 fine!

10.  So much love for this tiny house.

And three things from the Moral Fibres archives you might have missed:

What to do with leftover bread.

A guide to ethical maternity clothes.

Come on elderberry season – I’m waiting on you!

Have a relaxing Sunday!



  1. Hi Wendy,
    Google ‘writer’s block’ on Farnam street. They always have an interesting spin on things. Saw a piece about the writer Asimov, and a piece about ‘bird to bird’ that may inspire you.
    Also know, I enjoy reading your posts!

  2. Hi, I would love a post about sustainable feminine hygiene, my daughter is nearing this phase and the thought of her using some chemical gel filled monstrosity fills me with horror! I found a good post on reading my tea leaves but would like to know what’s available in the uk.

  3. Writer’s block sucks – I find the best way to combat it is by reading! I need to read up on plastic free living so thanks for the resource.
