10 ways to help the planet on Earth Day (or every day)

  1. Leave the car at home and use the bus, bike, train, or walk
  2. Turn off all non-essential electrical appliances (this means the TV, video, computer and mobile phone) -you can do it for just one day.
  3. Buy a packet of seeds and plant some herbs to grow on the kitchen window sill or re-seed the lawn.
  4. Buy some lemon juice and use it to clean your floor and bathroom (it’s great on limescale, and for polishing mirrors).
  5. Cook a whole meal  from scratch – buy local fresh ingredients and see how creative you can be without opening a can or pack.
  6. Have a shower instead of a bath, or share your bath with a good friend!
  7. Treat yourself to a good book and take the day off for some ‘me’ time, read, take a leisurely walk and spoil yourself.
  8. Pledge to replace your light bulbs with low energy ones.
  9. Fill a plastic bag with water, tie the top off & place in your loo cistern to save an extra litre or so when you flush.
  10. Buy a native fruit tree to plant in your garden.

Progress Update

Fri 17 April, I’m having quite a good week, had a good discussion with the “Paw Store” manager at Bath Cats & Dogs Home yesterday and a great meeting with Jacob our graphics man today. J and I have been working on some designs for our range of childrens soaps – coming soon – and he’s done a great job. I think Ossie (our dog) and Ivor (the rabbit) will be very pleased with their alter egos.
