Plan Bee

Spring is here! The days are getting longer, the flowers are blooming and the bees are… the bees are.. where are the bees? If you’ve been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of our buzzing little friends then I’m sure, like myself, you got really excited. This time of year is when hibernating bees wake up…

Dust off your hat: spring is here!

Spring has well and truly sprung. Waking up to daylight, seeing daffodils bursting out of the ground and leaving the scarves at home: it’s a sign of better things to come. Now, whilst most of us will have pub gardens and summer holidays at the forefront of our minds, some will have another epitomy of…

Ready. This Season. Cook!

It is  week 10 of the sustainunable revoloution. We’ve covered your search engine options, local ales and  staycations. What a journey  it has been,I don’t know about you but I’ve worked up quite the appetite! Tip number 10: Eat seasonal food! Spring is basically here and March is your month for green leafy veg. Think…

Flipping yes.

PANCAKES!!!! That’s right, it’s the most scrumptious holiday of the year: Shrove Tuesday. Many of us will have seen the numerous adverts telling us to stock up on eggs, Nutella, lemons and other delicious pancake-based ingredients… I for one, cannot wait to get stuck into the stodgy goodness. Now, most will know that Shrove Tuesday…

Be more sustainable. Take a holiday.

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little restless. Work days are dragging, Christmas was yonks ago and despite it being unseasonably warm at the moment, summer is still a while away. What do we need? Well, I think now is time to listen to the queen of pop. WE NEED A HOLIDAY….

Moving-in-imalism

I have too much stuff. I bet we’ve all said this at some point in our lives. I myself said it at least twelve times last night, desperately stuffing books into bags, ceramic chickens into boxes and an armchair into the back of a van. Moving-out or moving-in offers us the perfect, mildly stressful, opportunity…

Be my (sustainable) valentine?

Is Valentines the day of love? … or a day of overpriced dinners, unnecessary cards and pressure to spend lots of money on presents? Sorry. I’ll stop being so cynical. Valentines day, although a punch in the face for singletons, is a great opportunity to express your undying love to that special someone. However, as…

Big up the Local Ales!

To those who have just completed Dry January, well done! I admire your efforts (I was there in spirit, the one called Gin). I’m sure many people will be merrily jogging along to the pub this evening to indulge in their first pint of 2017! Enjoy! Number 5 in the sustainunable revolution: Drink locally brewed beer (or…

The Buzz Kill.

Many of us need it. That overdose of caffeine in the morning to jolt us out of our droopy-eyed slumber and shunt a partial version of ourselves into the start of a working day. It’s January. It’s cold, it’s frosty, it’s early, and hardly anyone is drinking alcohol. Therefore, it’s justifiable to buy a lovely…

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Over the last 10 days or so, some of you may have seen some adverts on the tube which look a little bit like this: Turns out there’s this fad called ‘Veganuary’ (yes, that’s the words vegan and January smushed together) in order to encourage people to ditch the meat and #SaveRocky (the cow), #SaveErnie…

Searching Sustainably

Happy New Year one and all – It’s 2017, at last! And so, to start the Sustainable Revolution, we’ll be changing a daily habit: the Google search! Whether it’s at work, at home, or a sneaky one under the table at a pub quiz, we all do it. What’s wrong with googling it, I hear…
