Earth Hour – Letting the planet catch its breath.

   Earth Hour is celebrating its 10 year anniversary today, an Australian borne idea to tackle climate change by turning off power sources for one hour and letting the earth take a breather. The idea grew quickly and is now celebrated in 172 Countries and over 7,000 cities and town around the globe, with 50-100 million participants. Crazy!! It seems looking after the planet is high on lots of people’s agendas – and with finding renewable energy supported for some time by the government, 1 in 7 Australians now have solar panels on their roofs. Go Aussie Go! As it...

Our 'Living Room' love

Sooooo a fortnight ago I flew to Sydney for something pretty freeeaking exciting. Okay…. like big time exciting. As part of an acknowledgement of Earth Hour, Channel 10’s 'The Living Room' featured some environmentally friendly products to road test. And our divine little soapy balls of wonder were invited to join the partaaeee!!! Get. The. F&*%. OUT!!!! So I flew around in circles for a little bit, juggled my schedule, re-arranged days to wash my hair and jumped on a plane. I met Natalia, TRH business partner there (she lives in Sydney) and off we trotted… almost peeing our pants with anticipation,...

Making the mother broth! Soapberry liquid

It’s true that our little balls of wonder can be used for so many household cleaning applications and all roads lead to our soapberry liquid! It’s the base for most of our chemical free household and personal care recipes. So once you’ve mastered the craft (slight exaggeration of the effort it will take) of boiling up some berries, you’ll be on your way to eliminating chemicals from so many other areas of your home. Here is how to make the mother broth… Add about 10 whole shells (or equivalent) per litre of water and boil for 15-20 minutes. Use the...

Fermented Foods – Why are they all urban hippy cool now?!

Well apparently, they’re kind of freeeeaking awesome for you and your gut. It's not new, it a resurgence from the dawn of time (well almost), our ancient ancestors were all over it - but that was out of a basic need to preserve food without refrigeration. They had it right back then, but over the decades we thought we knew better... turns out we didn't. We REALLY didn't. In fact, our food has turned toxic with the advancement of technology. But now it is back - not that it ever went anywhere, but back in the mainstream and it's uber groovy to delve back into...

Soapberries and camping – the perfect companions.

How do you keep clean naturally when camping this Easter? And no, we are not talking about the jokes around the campfire, we like them as dirty as possible! Easter holidays are approaching and soon the camp grounds will be a sea of colourful tents, swarming with dusty kids, stray dogs, a million bikes, sauce covered sausages, a gazillion flies and loads of foil covered chocolate. If you plan to go away for Easter, chances are you will need to do a load or two of washing while you’re gone. There is no avoiding it. The dirt, the dust, the...
