Welcome to the first instalment of Follow Friday here at Sunbeams and Sass! These posts will be a small round-up of fellow bloggers that I stumble upon and wish to share with you. I’ll give a general overview of what their blog is about and a brief outline of their most recent post.
This week I’m looking at blogs which talk about an eco-friendly life. I’m calling it Part 1, as I follow quite a few eco bloggers, and won’t fit them all into one post. I also foresee me finding new eco blogs, and making Go Eco! a series gives me the opportunity to give them a shout-out in future posts.
First up, we have A Reusable Life. Heather is mum to two boys and her blog is based widely around reusable/ethical products – cloth nappies in particular. Once you start using cloth nappies, you begin to look at other changes you can make with regards to hygiene products. Her latest post talks about the Bloom and Nora cloth sanitary pads gift box. Take a peek if you want to know more.
Freerangemummy is about Clare and her quest for a more eco-friendly lifestyle. She, her husband, and their two boys are striving to live a life “which doesn’t harm people or the planet.” They have just given up their family car, in a further step to reduce their carbon footprint. Read about how they coped with their family holiday without a car in her latest blog post.
In Naturally Sus(tainable), Lisa is passionate about the environment, but understands that some people can feel overwhelmed when trying to make changes. Her aim is to share her experiences, and gently guide us through what we can do to live a more environmentally sustainable life. In her most recent post, she gives a rundown of eco gifts to give this Christmas. If you’re stuck for ideas and fancy giving the gift of sustainability, head on over to her page.
Sustainable Girl, Material World is where A shares her successes and her failures in living a simpler, more sustainable life. I like her blog, as it gives hope to those who are perhaps on the verge of giving up after a bad run. Her latest post tells us how she and her husband fared in their eco-living journey when they both got sick. Inspiring. (The song Get Back up Again from Trolls runs through my head when I read her posts!)
In My Journey to a Plastic Free Life Beth is going plastic free in an effort to save our planet from destruction. She shares her journey with us, as well as giving helpful tips for anyone who wants to join her (and why wouldn’t you?!) Her most recent post gives tips for how to go plastic free at Christmas – it’s not too late to start caring for our planet!
It’s so interesting to see how different bloggers approach the same principles and topics in different ways. There are so many things we can do to ‘go eco’ – the trick is to take baby steps and try not to do everything at once. If we all took this approach, we’d see the benefits very quickly. Spread the love for the eco bloggers! Do you have a favourite eco blog you’d like to give a shout-out to? Share in the comments!
