link roundup blog

Hello!  Nice to see you today!  Did you catch Friday’s post?  Moral Fibres is a whole five years old!  This was the first ever post if you’re curious – I like to think we’ve come a long way since then!  To celebrate the five-year milestone I’m running a fantastic giveaway with Green People and People Tree, so do head over and enter!

This week’s links:

1. Patagonia has launched a “dating tool” to set you up with activism.  It only has a limited UK focus at the moment, but I hope it will grow.

2.  Second life – a lovely look at the joy of secondhand and buying from estate sales.  Estate sales aren’t a thing in the UK and truth be told, I used to think they sounded a bit creepy, but I have just changed my mind thanks to the writer’s words.  “I walk out of each home reminded that our time to cook, to write, to live is limited. I’ll always think about the people whose things are bringing me joy and pray that they’re at peace, wherever that may be“.

3.   How amazing does this Swedish shopping centre dedicated to repaired and recycled goods sound?

4.  I downloaded this water bottle refill app this week and it’s pretty useful.  I haven’t had many, if any, problems filling up my water bottle, to be honest, but it’s always helpful to know if somewhere water bottle friendly is nearby.

5.  How to eat homemade lunch every day at work (and only cook once).  I’d love to set up a work lunch club!

6.  Huge respect to Riverford.

7.  I really related to this account of a week of living plastic-free.

8.   Inside Aberporth, the first plastic-free community, whilst the Shetland Islands vow to be plastic free by the end of this year!

9.  This insect ‘art’ is stunning.

10.  Finally, some non-consumerist Valentine’s Day ideas if you want to ditch the roses and do something a little less commercial this year.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  One of my kids has been under the weather, so we’ve been holed up indoors so far.  I have my fingers crossed we can get out for some restorative fresh air today!


PS: catch up on 4th February’s post here, in case you missed it.
