    In reply to: Larissa posted an update Ever wondered if there is an alternative to the plastic bags provided for your fruit and vegies at the store. There is! Its Get Real Bags. I have been using these drawstring bags for six […] View

    Those bags are great! Its good to see shops making you pay for plastic. Cafes should do the same thing and offer discounts for those who bring in their own mugs of Keep Cups.

    Just progressed one of my challenges – got myself a ACT library membership (bit of low hanging fruit – but just as tasty :) . Realise my bookshelf is overflowing – going to keep only the ones worth re-reading. The rest are for donation. The gap can be filled by my new membership!

    Hi Sonya Mermaid – I have been to the one at Curin. It is great – especially cause its open till 7 on weekdays! They have great olives although I recently visited the Fedra Olive Grove and got some straight from the site! Have you been out there?

    Looking forward to advancing my challenges over the break although I have to admit its hard when your on vacation. You don’t just take a break from work but from the good habits of daily life. Some things are easier (like eating less meat – esp on good friday) but some harder – like use less energy – especially if the weather goes belly up!

    Went to Tiny’s green shed to get a few things. Better buying recycled then creating further demand for new things :)

    The epic markets are choice, but its a pity its only open early on Saturday. There needs to be markets that appeal to the night owls! Do agree that native limes are great – I like to squeeze some in with cold water.
