Well, 2019 has well and truly kicked off, and this is the year of sustainability and 'going green'.
Sustainable living is following a lifestyle that doesn’t harm society or culture by living within the means of the environment. It’s about taking what we need to live now, without jeopardising the needs of future generations.
Sounds great right? Well, that's because it is!
It might seem overwhelming at first when making the change from conventional everyday goods, but thanks to amazing world we live in, there are loads of environmentally conscious brands available to us at every turn!
Here are some of my favourites!
