Ten Things

Eco blog

Hiya!  Good week?  This one went quick, don’t you think?  We lit our woodburning stove this week for the first time since spring, and have officially said bye to summer.  We’re on full on autumn mode now and I’m even contemplating buying a slow cooker* (this one is just £25 and has good reviews) as I’m currently craving hearty dinners like stews and chillis.   Do you have a slow cooker?  Do you love it?  Any recommendations for vegetarian/vegan slow cooker recipes before I make the plunge?

On to the links:

1.  Why Paris will be the first car-free metropolis. “The city’s parking spaces will become bike or scooter paths, café terraces or playgrounds” and it sounds heavenly.

2.  Scientists can calculate just how much climate change individual oil companies are responsible for – one-quarter of global warming can be traced to emissions from fewer than two-dozen companies.

3.  An important thing to remember – humans aren’t detached from nature.

4.  The problem with mason jars.  Nothing is safe.  Nothing.

5.  12 one-hour things you can do that will make the world a better place.  So many sweet ideas.  Top of my list: make a wiggly bag.

6.  Disco soup!

7.  Scientists have created cotton that glows and is magnetic, with no genetic engineering required – just sugar.  Clothes just got hi-tech!

8.  The funniest museum spat.

9.. The Festival of Thrift is on next weekend and looks pretty good!

10.  Finally, one tray vegetarian dinners.  Yes please.

PS: there is 20% off at Gudrun Sjõdén right now with code GSWEBB20 in honour of their 20th birthday.

Zero waste crisps.

Food that magically regrows.

Handy resources to help you shop more ethically.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Is that Glen Coe in the picture? It’s such a beautiful place.
    I always wondered whether or not the lining on the understand of mason jar lids was safe. I suspected it probably wasn’t. The bamboo lids are cute. I’ve been using kilner jars with the clips a lot.

  2. If you haven’t already bought one, I’ve got the Tesco own brand slow cooker, which is slightly smaller but is great (and cheap!)
