weekly round upWelcome to our weekly roundup. If you’re new to the site, this is the place where you can gather the past week’s news and catch up with things.

We began the week with a reminder about zero waste week. If you’re a resident of Gloucestershire (and hey, even if you’re not), this is your chance to have a go at reducing your rubbish. Find out more and if you’re all signed up, then come over to our dedicated zero waste page to ask questions, share your experiences and chivvy one another along.

On Tuesday, we were still sharing some of our Christmas stories. This time we had a bit of a moan about a certain company who failed miserably on the zero waste packaging stakes. All in all they were a bit rubbish.

Little Miss Green was invited to her first party of the year. As every parent knows, along with a party comes a party bag. Did the contents swell our bin this week?

Our bin was delighted with her weigh in this week. Find out how much she weighed and what we found in her tummy.

On Thursday, we proudly presented a guest post from Sarah, from Ethics Trading. She shared a great way to get around the problem of growing carrots in clay soil, making use of an item you might otherwise throw away.

To continue the theme, Little Miss Green and I did a short YouTube video on Friday, showing you what we’ve been doing with our toilet roll inners! I bet you can’t wait to find out 😉

That just about rounds up another week here at Chez Green. Thank you again for your continuing support, for all your comments and feedback. Don’t forget to join in with our latest discussions,  and to browse our articles for help and advice.

Have yourselves a lovely Sunday and we’ll back tomorrow for more rubbishy adventures.
