Organic Zinc Sunscreen - Surfers Zinc SPF 50

With all of the knowledge we now have on just how damaging the suns UV rays are to our skin, it makes sense to be proactive and to ensure that you take the very best care possible. 

Bamboo Toothbrushes

Beginning of February me and my daughter opened a new toothbrush and wrote the date onto the brushes. This was out of pure curiosity as I really wanted to know how long my toothbrush would last, as well as our daughter's one. 

Be good, Dish Brush

12 months ago we started using the Be Good Dish Brush. The handle is made of bamboo and the brush head & bristles made from recycled plastic. 

Reusable fresh produce bags

Well, I have to say that those string bags remind me of my teenage years back in Switzerland. Back then, they used to be hip, had nearly one in every colour to match my outfit.

Oxygen Bleach, 100 % Sodium Percarbonate

Can you feel that Spring is in the air? Still cold mornings but beautiful days. I also spotted the first pollen on our car. Which made me think that it is that time of the year again to wake everything up from the "winter sleep"...

Dish cloths

Me personally am not much of a blogger but in this case I'd like to write about this fantastic product. It seems a bit weird to write about such a simple household item, but I feel like it's worth spreading the word.

Bokashi

Are you struggling to keep the little animals away from your compost heap? We have been using the amazing Bokashi compost system for years now and still think this is the best system ever.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

This is an article to share as it is exciting news. As most of us know, methane emissions are worse then all the emissions caused by trains, cars, planes, bikes and boats.

Bike lane is also a Solar Array

Now that is just so impressive. While reading and watching how the have build a bike lane as well as a solar array in Korea we were wondering, if something like that would be possible in New Zealand?

    I wanted something that was not a Ziplock bag as I dont want to use plastic in my house. These bags are perfect for sandwiches, big enough for large bread. Perfect! Great product!

    Mary F on Large Laundry Pack

    Grade:
    I bought these as they are completely natural and free from chemicals and toxins. I was really impressed by the first use but by the fourth I didn't feel they did such a great job. and the used nuts smell odd (the essential oil makes the clothes smell fab). They are excellent for items that aren't actually dirty but need a refresh. I found them lacking when it comes to washing whites. I'd absolutely recommend them, though.

    Mary F on Compostable Kitchen Tidy Liners, 27l

    Grade:
    I've been using these for a while now and I highly recommend them. They work best with dry waste as they tend to break down with wet waste, but I do use them in my kitchen compost bin as well. They are great for taking straight to the garden as there's no mess and they break down quickly. I love them!
