As you know by now, our aim at Lisa Valentine Home is to help you create a home which will make your life easier, more stylish and more sustainable. Here are some of the ways we can help you with this.
GET YOUR MILK DELIVERED BY YOUR LOCAL MILKMAN.
Milk doorstep deliveries have been in steady decline over the past 20 years. Back in 1975, 94% UK milk was delivered in glass bottles, but by 2016 that had decreased to just 3%. `but it seems that things are changing, with dairies reporting a surge in enquiries in recent months, This is one area where you can instantly cut down your plastic used and support a small business too . This website provides details of all the milk deliveries in your area- ask them if they deliver in glass bottles. I know the issue of glass bottles vs plastic isn’t as straightforward as it first sounds but surely if it helps reduce our plastic consumption its got to be a step in the right direction.
CUT DOWN ON PAPER TOWELS AND CLEANING WIPES
Instead of constantly throwing away paper towels, our natural unbleached cotton cleaning cloths can be washed over and over and used for cleaning every surface. We have smaller cloths for surfaces and larger ones which are great for floors.
USE BUTTER AND NOT SPREADS IN PLASTIC TUBS
a design classic(and i’ve always had a thing for galvanised steel) - our dustpans and brushes will last a lifetime.
STOP BUYING BAGS FOR LIFE
pop one or two of these in your hand bag for when you nip into to the supermarket . you’ll save yourself buying yet another bag for life (the irony, how many have you got?) or a 5p last carrier bag - and the bonus is you’ll look like like you’ve just walked out of French market,
