As someone who loves to get outside as much as I can, litter is something that bothers me greatly. Whether I’m in town (read about my visit to Bridgnorth), by the sea or in the countryside, litter – especially plastic waste – is a massive issue. In an attempt to rally the troops and spread the load a little, Jenni


Litter and waste in general is a huge issue, and one that seems to be high on the agenda at the moment. The amount of rubbish I throw away has always bothered me, and I am always on the lookout for ways I can do my bit to cut waste. I am a huge believer that

Review: SIGG Classic Bottle and Alu Box

It has long been generally accepted that packing up your own lunch to take to work is cheaper than buying lunch every day. Being organised with our at-work-food-intake by making it in advance also helps us keep track of what we are eating and look after ourselves nutrition-wise; and it leaves our lunch break for

My Ditch the Plastic Challenge

During February I was challenged by SIGG to ditch the plastic – a challenge for which they sent me one of their metal bottles with an active top. When I first agreed to the challenge, before I wrote my post introducing it to you, I thought it would be no problem at all – easy even. I

Review: SIGG Active Top 0.75l Bottle

I’ll let you know how I’ve got on with my ditch the plastic challenge in a few days, but first I wanted to give the SIGG bottle I was given a proper review post. This is the SIGG Active Top 0.75l Performance Purple bottle. It is a 750ml metal bottle with a plastic lid and straw

Ditch the Plastic with SIGG

I have been challenged by SIGG to ditch the plastic this February – more specifically, to stop buying single use plastic bottles for one month. The fact is that in the UK we just don’t need to buy bottled water. We have clean running water in our homes, in our offices, in our schools, in

Review: J2O Fridge Pack

I am a BzzAgent and this is a Bzz Review… I was recently sent on one of the new J2O Fridge Packs to try at home. I am already a fan of J2O, I enjoy the juice drinks very much and, even though they are very sweet, they are something nice to have when I

Lifebottle Competition

This competition is now closed. All comments before 8pm on the closing date have been approved and the winners will be announced in a new blog post in the next few days. Good luck!! The lovely people at have been very generous and have given me six lifebottles to give away. That means that

Lifebottle by

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about and the fact that they were trying to encourage people to ditch single use plastic water bottles in favour of reusable bottles. I thought, feel, that this is a very worthy campaign – while the plastic bottles you get mineral water in are generally recycled/recyclable, we

Drink Tap Water

I walked passed Lush in Lincoln the other day and spotted a blue sticker in the window that said “”.  Naturally I had to look it up: is a not for profit organisation promoting the drinking of tap water in the UK. Our aim is to reduce the use of expensive and environmentally damaging

Bottlepink for Breakthrough Breast Cancer

Bottlegreen have teamed up with Breakthrough Breast Cancer to turn into a particularly girly Bottlepink in this special edition drink. This well known green company has turned pink for October 2011 which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, just like it did last October, to help raise awareness – and money.  The Pomegranate & Elderflower Cordial and

Fentimans Rose Lemonade

Fentimans is a producer of traditional drinks in glass bottles – from Curiosity Cola and Ginger Beer to my favourite drink ever – Victorian Lemonade. This is their Rose Lemonade.  It is available in 750ml bottles and I got mine from Tesco. I wondered what the addition of rose would be, and it does really
