Green-up your cleaning routine

Give your home a bit of TLC with an eco-friendly makeover

Get the dusters out, your sleeves rolled up and put your marigolds on – it’s time to do your spring clean. But, before you head to the shop and fill your basket with products that will make your home sparkle, take a look at the packaging and check if it’s eco-friendly. Choosing cleaning products that are kind to the planet offers a whole host of benefits, not just for the environment, but for ourselves and our families, too.

About Be Kind

Hello, Welcome to the new issue. We had an overwhelming response to our first edition – we’re so glad we reached so many like-minded people who want to make the world a better place. This month we’re looking at the huge topic of food and, in particular, why so much of this precious resource ends up in the bin. I was astonished to learn that around one third of all food produced for humans gets wasted each year – that’s around 1.3 billion tonnes of perfectly edible food ending up lost or wasted. It’s time to redress the balance and start taking responsibility for our own contribution to these scary statistics, and this issue is packed with ways to reduce your food footprint, make more sustainable choices and fight back against waste. So many times this month I have found myself referring back to how our grandparents used to live – buying items built to last, repairing and reusing, being creative with food scraps and living, where possible, within their means. Sharing this ethos, we spoke to the inspirational social enterprise Emmaus, who are encouraging us all to ditch the flat pack and buy second-hand furniture and the lovely Selkie Patterns who want to get us all sewing our own clothes. With these small steps, together we can start making a difference. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
