Have you ever had a really bad year? Where it felt that practically everything that could go wrong, did go wrong? A time where if you decided to jump out of a plane, the parachute would inevitably fail? Well mine was July 2018 – June 2019.
After much soul searching, blame attaching and wine consumption, I realised there were some things I could change, even if others didn’t. My food choices. How I treat others. Drink less wine. And in amongst all of that was uncertainty around the future for my 13 year old son, maybe his children, and then their children.
Then I started to think more deeply about what I was buying. And I wanted to ask questions around my purchases. Was I being greenwashed? But there’s nobody to really ask. Most packaging is vague and gone are the days when you can just pick up the phone and speak to someone!
When you do start to buy differently, it can be quite a shock at how costly ethical products are. I was fully prepared and willing to pay a premium for moving away from mass production, but some products…seriously?!
So all of the abbreviated mess above, probably sums up how this website came about. And if some of it resonates with you, then please stay a while…
