Have a go and grow it yourself!

Intermittent sunshine and exposed extremities - it must be nearing planting season in Australia! Welcome October and all your springy gorgeousness! Here at TRH headquarters, we have been clearing out the garden beds, pulling weeds and trimming up the yard, to make way for the October planting. There is nothing like the sun on your back, fresh air in your lungs and kids running on the grass to make you feel earthed and alive! Well a G&T in the sun might come close – but it’s slightly less productive! In a double win it is also school holidays which means a good sesh in...

Your laundry detergents dirty little secret

‘Bulking agents’ are not just for body builders and ‘fillers’ are not just for cracks. Unfortunately they are both polluting your laundry and effecting your health and chances are, you don't even realise. Unless you’ve looked further than the back of your laundry detergent box, you will be shocked to find out what they actually contain. I know I was. Not shocked actually. More like horrified. Granular bulking agents and fillers are the shit (and not as in... ‘da shit’ but actual shit!!) that is added to laundry detergents to make their volume larger and give you the perception that you are getting...

Micro sized; causing macro sized problems.

Micro sized; causing macro sized problems.

The bathroom is the biggest offender when it comes to offensive materials in the home and no, I’m not talking about what your husband just backed out! I’m talking other environmental nightmares. We have more chemicals here, than in any other room in the house. And unless you have been living under a very large rock – or you choose to ignore it - chemical exposure has a seriously detrimental effect on our health.

Choking the planet – one coffee cup at a time.

Until, not so long ago did we all assume (or was it just me?) that every time you bought a takeaway coffee, your cup was recyclable? Well, bloody hell people – I am here to tell you – they’re not!! WTAF!! Coffee cups, are not bloody recyclable!!! Sweet Jesus – am I the only one who was clueless about this? Paper cups, plastic cups, styrofoam cups, and those not-quite-paper, not-quite-plastic who-knows-what-it-is coffee cups = landfill, landfill, landfill. I’m actually aghast as to how this has actually happened. Surely we now live in a progressive, environmentally aware (and conscious) society… How...
