mrs-green-my-zero-wasteMorning all! Here are my top 3 zero waste stories from around the internet this week.

Each one will help you reduce, reuse, recycle or compost.

Home made planters

Over on “The Really Good Life”, Louisa has been exploring ideas for making planters.

She has two walls which she would like to cover in planters, but she wants to reuse and repurpose materials to make her own instead of buying new

Go along and have a read through the suggestions and add your own with her “Adventures in frugal, vertical gardening“.

How do I recycle?

Over on Greening Sam and Avery, Abbie challenged her readers to have a zero waste day, and I was on hand to answer any questions.

From dryer lint to snacks they asked it all!

Check out “reduce, reuse, recycle” and if you’ve got a burning question for me, ask away!

Ok, I’m sorry to lower the tone, and I know we focus on reducing and reusing but I am seriously in love with these shoes from TRAIDremade.

Ballet pumps are never out of style and these gorgeous “Golightly Pumps” are made from recycled vintage fabrics, so you can indulge in some guilt-free eco shopping.

At £40 a pop, it’s not an unreasonable price for something that is handmade in the UK and unique!
