I definitely want to try this! We drink a lot of cold coffee in the summer anyway.


I wanted to suggest saving the coffee grounds - particularly if you can't compost. They are awesome for shower scrubs. You don't need to add sugar or oil - just wet coffee grounds to make your knees and elbows smooth.

These types of bans really scare me. We are heading towards a society where governments tell us what is bad for us, and therefore, what is good for us as well. Take your vaccines and Soma tablets and relax, in other words. This is the kind of mentality that got us stuck in the plastic rut in the first place - simply accepting what we are given.

Just as a consumer, my pet peeve is companies that mis-use terminology. For example, recycled plastic packaging is NOT eco-friendly, because it's still plastic. And neither is a smaller plastic bottle of concentrated petro-chemical laundry soap.

 

As a blogger who cares about the origin of products, knowing exactly where something came from, and how it was handled is really important to me as well.

Your last paragraph sums it up perfectly. For a long time, I've felt that children and the environment should always come first. Whatever decisions we make, if we keep those two priorities in mind, everything else will fall into place; because what's good for children, and good for the planet, is good for everyone, and will carry on into the future.
