The whole idea of moving to the house on the lake was to enjoy the outdoors a bit more, live a healthier and happier lifestyle and have more space. We have all of this but what I didn’t foresee was all the wonderful fresh food readily available on our doorstep – by the way, this is now our doorstep ;-):
I’m determined to make our house Eco friendly, be kinder to my own skin and protect nature and waterways. Making the house on the lake into a ‘green’ house takes a little bit of reading and so my obsessing with Pinterest grows everyday! I’m of course hoping to look a bit like this whilst cleaning my new home, ahem:
When talking to others I realise that an obstacle to buying eco friendly products (I love Ecover) from the supermarkets is that they can be quite pricey however with some creative thinking and a little bit of elbow grease it’s actually a lot cheaper and more satisfying to create your own from natural ingredients.
Think about showering without unknown chemicals – I love this recipe from savvy sugar plus they have great budget tips too:
And why not try this one too while you’re at it:
Or the drain cleaner and air freshened from Brightnest :
It is becoming more and more difficult to live a natural life with hidden chemicals in everything from food to paint so sometimes it’s nice to take matters into your own hand and create a better environment for yourself and the people around you!
