Inspired by @sozoblog who made a bunch of #pocketjoggers by @elementopatterns for baby no. 4, they are so nice that I am attempting to make the next size up, so patterns cut this will be my weekend project with the added bonus that the grey fabric is a French Terry from @girlcharleeuk that was in my stash and the black fabric is a worn out tee 😊👍.

The 5 R’s . I have been trying to use this ethos . 
Reduce the amount of waste I produce , reusing where I can , for example old tees for cloth wipes , refusing plastic bags by bringing my tote, recycling plastics I do use and finally I am staring to collect food waste for my allotment compost bin. Little things can help contribute to a bigger goal. 🌱🌎.

I’ve been trying think about my goals  and what I want to achieve . For me it’s important that even if I’m not the most zero waste person , I show my kids how to be more conscious of what they use.  I do this by trying to get them excited when going on a treasure hut through charity shops , making snacks , going to the bulk store , helping grow our food at the allotment🌱.I hope that this helps them care about the planet we live on. 🌎
What are your goals ? .

One of my favorite charity shop finds is this lovely handmade baby hat🧢, so unique. One of the things I love about having a good hunt around a charity store is when you come across handmade items that someone has put a lot of effort into making and I get to share in appreciating that to. 💕.

There are often lots of posts saying what kit you should have to be zerowaste, and it can be easy to get caught up in thinking you need it all. But truly you can use what you have, I almost brought metal straws the other day but luckily I took a step back and throught wait I don't use straws normally so I promptly put them down. I use cutlery from my kitchen instead of a bamboo travel set ( although that may be on my birthday wish list) and am gathering old unusable clothing to make cloth wipes. So if you want to be more zerowaste have a 'shop' around the house and I'm sure you will find some useful items just waiting to be reused.

Finally getting started on a new sewing project #yorkpinafore . Hopefully this will be just right for my wardrobe at the moment and sort out my need for a dress I can easily breastfeed in. ✂️🧵🤱.

Little day trip to Brighton today. Popped into this gem @birdandblendtea. I loved how enthusiastic lovely staff member was about tea and they are encouraging less waste by giving 10% off if you bring your own container, which I will on my next trip to B Town. Looking forward to having this brewed with oat milk over ice 🥤

#zerowaste win of the day fully thrited and handmade outfit on new baba . It's the little things that make me happy 😀. Sometimes I feel I'm not doing enough and find it really hard to be frugal and zerowaste with  a family of six, but one thing I have found easy is clothes  shopping.  Where once I dreaded clothes shopping, I now feel excited when I find a bargain, and relish a challenge in hunting down anx item I need. Thanks for teaching me some skills @chaz_and_save  xx
