Winter biking through the snpw has its own thrills but now it’s...

    It's easy to find and choose palm oil free margarin in stores, but giving up / replacing coffee and chocolate is hard. Maybe tea instead?

    Instead of waste, I'd rather spend this on my garden renovation, summer vacation or hobbies.
