Sounds like you've found some good way to cut down/recycle your plastic Ann ..

 

Unfortunately my meds are the kind that come pre-packaged on a plastic/foil tray, and I'm not near a city so no EnviroWaste centres to take bubble wrap too either .. But that's ok as it's extremely rare I order new books, and simply request packages be sent in cardboard not plastic :D

 

Doing really good on the plastic-free front actually - so much so that the last 3wks worth of our household rubbish fits inside an Udon noodle packet and is still only 3/4 full!

For nut milk I  soak 100gram of nuts overnight (I especially love walnut) .. Strain the next morning and grind in a blender, then add 2 dates,1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste (pureed vanilla beans), and 3 cups of water, then whiz for 2min and strain through muslin .. That makes a liter and takes only 5 minutes of my time :)

Too small for me, but I wanted to say that I love the idea of biodegradable footwear, and smelling of cinnamon = omgoodness yes please :) 

 

I really don't buy a lot of clothes, maybe a couple of tops & socks once every second year?  so I guess my tips would be to not purchase more than you actually will wear to start with .. Personally I love wrap-around skirts which adjust to any form of weight fluctuate, and are so easy to make at home out of what you already have, or 2nd hand items purchased for the material (even cotton bed sheets/duvet covers!) .. 

 

And it's fascinating to hear about people having to refuse hangers at shops as here in New Zealand I doubt they would let you keep them even if you asked ..
