MM Matters: How to care for ourselves and the planet
With a new year in sight, it's the perfect time to prioritise your health, your home and the planet.
Here's a few easy suggestions to help to take care of them all.
Switch to 100% linen bedding.
Virtuous on all fronts, linen is just as caring for you as it is for our world.
Grown with minimal water and no pesticides linen is harvested without waste.
Antibacterial, antimicrobial, breathable...linen cares for you deeply and naturally.
Invest in an Organic Latex Mattress.
A wonderful sleep has seriously wonderful benefits and switching to an organic mattress only makes it sweeter.
We love Totem Road's Organic Latex Mattress - dreamily comfortable, anti-bacterial and with a truly sensitive side that's non-toxic to you or the environment.
Eat locally, eat seasonally.
Eating in season is a great way to look after yourself and our world.
By indulging in what's readily available locally you not only cut down on food CO2 miles but you give your body exactly what it needs.
There's a reason why immunity-building, vitamin C-rich citrus fruits are ripe as we head into the colder months.
Using gentle soaps, detergents and household cleaners helps us all.
By choosing clean and natural shampoos, dishwashing liquids and laundry detergents, we minimise the flushing of chemicals into our water systems whilst caring for our own health and wellbeing. Plus, our linen will last a lifetime when cared for by friendly soap suds.
Clear the air, clear your mind.
Heading out? Why not park the car and take a hike.
Leaving your wheels at home is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint whilst the fresh air will do wonders for you mind and wellbeing.
