Just One Small Change…….

Just One Small Change….

It has become increasingly apparent that we need to change the way we live.

There are so many things that we, as a species, need to address: 

From single-use plastics to our reliance on rain forest-destroying palm oil, we simply MUST change our habits.

I was so upset earlier today when I read the story of a dead sperm whale with 6kg of plastic inside it. How can we have so little respect for the other inhabitants of planet Earth? 

I am working hard to eliminate plastic from my business & have already decided that in 2019 my bath bombs will be wrapped in recycled tissue paper and my outer packaging (for when I post parcels out) will be recycled cardboard packed with shredded recycled tissue paper.

I already choose glass jars with cork lids over plastic bottles for bath salts & oils.

None of my products contain palm oil and they are also vegan, natural, and cruelty-free.

Just one small change – from each and every one of us. It’s what we must do.

In tears,

And……..Breathe!

It definitely seems to take me longer to recover from the craft fairs these days! Finish on a Sunday & I may just be back to ‘normal’ by Wednesday haha.

We generally have about a month between events which is plenty of time for me to replace sold stock & come up with a few new ideas too.

This time though it’s only THREE weeks until our last fair of 2018 – Mold Town Centre 28th November to 2nd December – so I need to get my skates on, especially as I am also attending the Mothers In Business Association meeting on the 19th!

Mold Xmas for Facbook 9.10.18

So what gifts are you all looking to buy this Christmas? I am making a determined effort to support small local businesses this year so that my money goes to help other people like myself.

If we all made the effort to buy hand-made it could make so much difference to the local economy. After all, we aren’t going to be squirrelling away what we earn in off-shore accounts to avoid paying tax, but instead will be using it to buy gifts for our own loved ones.

There are so many talented people out there and a unique gift is always so much more special that a mass-produced piece of plastic!

Come and see some of our fabulously talented crafters in Mold & I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

I’m off to make a new batch of bath salts now.

Love & Light
