    I went shopping for a winter sports jacket last night and learnt that some brands had started to use eco-friendly materials.  I ended up picking a couple Superdry padded jackets that used recycled polyster (rPET) for the polyester fill.  On average, 10 plastic bottles are utilised in each Superdry padded jacket.  It's great to look fashionable and be eco-friendly at the same time.

      Certainly, Cindy!  I will wear the jacket and post a picture when I'm out next time.  :)

      Sounds great. Can we see a picture of you in one of your jackets? Maybe when you are on another walk? Love the one you posted last week; helps me to feel like I am ‘visiting’ new places and ‘meeting up’ with colleagues, while keeping our carbon footprint low ;-)

    I came across some good tips on how to save electricity at home and would like to share with everyone.  Note that the savings estimated on the website are in Canadian dollars.  :)

      Great to go for a walk to get some fresh air!  And Cindy’s pictures are beautiful!  I also have a picture to share from a couple weeks ago.

      I’m trying to do this too Angela. STEPtember was a great way to kick-start this new habit! What I’ve noticed this month is how beautiful the trees are this autumn in London...

    Smaller potion meal reduces the food wasted and also helps me to stay healthy

    Nearly 2m kids in the U.K. start school on an empty stomach; this reduces their ability to learn. We are supporting a charity called Magic Breakfast which helps to fill some of the gap. To ensure the bigger Community Social Justice problem gets solved, I have written to my local MP to ask her to sign the upcoming Breakfast Bill : https://www.magicbreakfast.com/school-breakfast-bill

    I came across this old article from Reader's Digest when I was looking for energy saving ideas.  I was shocked to hear "Roughly 50 devices and appliances in the typical American home are always drawing power, even when they’re not being actively used."

    After reading this, I just unplugged my devices at home that are used only rarely!
