Forget the can of Mr Muscle or Pledge and discover e-cloths. These magic cloths work brilliantly without polish. The micro fibre has a unique surface (480,000 strands per square centimetre) which traps and absorbs minute particles of dust and dirt, leaving surfaces completely clean.
The nights have drawn in here in the UK. Curtains are being closed across the land, throws are no longer laying decoratively on the back of the sofa but are warming up toes instead. There is light at the end of the tunnel though, we can all start lighting candles again!
I have found a selection of candles and candle holders, some are fairtraded, some made from recycled materials and some are made from soya oil and bees wax. There’s even an olive oil lamp.
For a light hearted take on the environmental issues surrounding candles go to New Scientist.
It’s quite difficult to get any more eco-friendly really. Reusing unloved things and turning them into lovely things. This is exactly what they do at Ting.
Ting transforms seat belts into cushions, poofs, wallets and more. Not just black seat belts either, there’s green ones courtesy of the ambulance service and orange ones from Easyjet. You won’t need to worry about chocolate stains or greasy fingerprints spoiling your new cushion though, the seat belts are all new having been rejected by buyers for one reason or another. The leather items were once old belts and saddles.
Ting is based in London, everyone cycles to the office, and they minimise their environmental impact wherever they can. There’s so many reasons to support Ting.
