Glorious March

Lovely weather this March so nice to be able to enjoy the sun for so long (ie unlike the south Island).
Our task of minimising the waste is going well. Compost deposited via a lovely lady from the Facebook Zero Waste in NZ group. Recycling sorted as usual and only a small bag for the landfill this month but you really don't want to see how much soft plastic packaging I have. Unfortunately we'll need to keep the soft plastics with us until we visit the Waikato again as not many places in the North Island have the facilities to recycle soft plastics but at least it doesn't take up as much room as the rest of the recycling. Also finished the last bottle of washing up liquid so the transistion to soap is done. Not sure if this is the best environmentally friendly soap (unsustainable palm oil and all that) but at least it's a step in the right direction. I think.

Thumbs Up

Thumbs up to a more positive effort to minimize our waste while on the road. Cloth bags organised, food scraps composted, soft plastics sorted and just one tiny plastic bag of waste to go to the landfill this month.

Ha, ha

Ha, ha, Mark thought he'd managed to put down the tools but a few electrical gremlins of his own came to find him. Well at least he did manage to get to the beach.

Eventually managed to put down the tools and find somewhere to hide away for the Summer.

Wow! that was a quick month. I can't believe it is December already.

Wow it's nearly December and I haven't got round to putting up October's post yet.  Erm I wonder why? We must have been busy catching up on jobs. Thanks AA (not).
