Mrs A celebrates three years of talking rubbish over at The Rubbish Diet

Welcome to my round up of some of the best reduce, recycle, reuse stories!

Each one will inspire us to take another step towards a more sustainable and zero waste future.

Plastic free salad

As you know, Mr Green favours a high raw diet during the summer.

He has more energy, feels healthier and last year we successfully grew our own salad mixes.

The only challenge was, Mr green wouldn’t listen to my ‘successive sowing’ advise and ended up with a glut followed by a lean time when he had to buy stuff from the shop.

Over on “Eat Weeds”, lean times don’t exist because these two know how to forrage. Last week they were tucking into a foraged winter herb salad which included 9 different plants!

Sowing seeds

Talking of food, I’ve set myself a bit of a personal challenge this year.

I want to get all my seeds in on time. Each year I throw them in last minute and hope for the best.

2011 is going to be my year of planning and organisation in the garden and as Fern reminds us from “Life on the Balcony”, it’s never too early to sow some seeds indoors.

Check out her Who, What , Where, When and Why of indoor sowing.

Mrs A celebrates!

This week’s round up wouldn’t be complete without a huge congratulations for our very own Mrs A.

Mrs A celebrated her third year blogaversary over on “The Rubbish Diet” last Friday.

If you’ve been with us since the launch of my zero waste, you’ll be aware that this special lady was the initial inspiration  for reducing our waste. Without her, there would probably be no us.

Now there’s a thought…

Please take a moment to head over to her blog and wish her a happy blogaversary!

    How about this piece of news to rejuvenate jaded spirits, sagging under a landfill of plastic hell! There is clear, green light at the end of a very murky plastic tunnel after all!
