Raw (un)cooking class

I love raw food. It can be some of the tastiest food I get to eat. One of my absolute favourite cafes is a raw vegetarian cafe. For some time now I’ve been dreaming of going to an A Foodly Affair raw (un)cooking class. Finally I had enough free time and a good excuse (early Christmas present)…

Why every parent should join a toy library

I heart Hulbert Street… even more!

We visited the annual Hulbert Street Sustainability Fiesta yesterday and it was just like I remember it: inspirational, educational but most of all fun! It was even bigger than last year (I blogged about it for the first time here) but I saw it with new eyes as a new Mum. I realised how it’s…

My local fair trade, recycled and organic shop

Awesome Christmas shopping (that you can feel good about)

It’s more about being smart about your Christmas shopping – and buying sustainable and eco friendly…

I Heart Hulbert Street

Yesterday I visited the Hulbert Street Sustainability Fiesta in (you guessed it) Hulbert Street, Fremantle. The Fiesta began in 2008 by residents Shani and Tim after they held a successful Solar Power Day at the newly opened Painted Fish in 2007 (sustainable, carbon neutral bed and breakfast accomodation at #37 Hulbert Street). They realised people…

My plastic fantastic bag

I found the amazing Bags Revolt  stall at the last Made on the Left Market and instantly fell in love with this bag (which I subsequently bought). I love the colours. I love the size. I love the fact that it’s made from old plastic bags! Talk about an upcycling hero! Venezuelan born artist Patricia…
