Good Morning on Day 17 of the Eco Friendly Challenge. We are over half way through! Don’t Forget to catch up on all previous days in our BLOG
Here’s a round up of Days 13-16…
Slightly different day 13 as its not really about action but being aware. Its safe to say we cant get away from the news at the moment, however, there has been some positives from the current situation. There have been reports showing the overwhelming improvement of our environment due to the reduction of pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Marshall Burke from Stanford University has calculated the potential lives SAVED from the reduction of pollution in China. Two months of pollution reduction has probably saved the lives of 4,000 children under 5 and 73,000 adults adults over 70 in China.
Its something we’ve known about for a long time, air pollution can cost us 3 years off our global life expectancy.
We have been having some gorgeous weather so this has come at the perfect time, hanging out your laundry.
Hanging your laundry out to dry instead of using your tumble dryer:
Even if you don’t hang every wash load, each time you do, you save yourself money and help to protect the environment.

Lets face it, times are difficult, so why not treat yourself? You could also treat someone else who you are missing or maybe one of our key workers. We have introduced the Between Green Boxes.
I don’t know about you but I love a candle or wax melt burning through the home. And now we’re at staying home we’re using them more.
To keep the lovely scents strong I’ve been adding a few drops of essential oil to some plain wax (tealight candle removed from the outer tin and remove the inner wick) and using that instead of wax melts.
The benefits of using essential oils in this way:
We are currently using a blend of lavender, geranium and ylang-ylang.
Between Green offers a wide range of oils and blends and you can find them all HERE
