Chapter 3- Ecosia

Hello Lovelies,

We’re already on Chapter 3 of the helping the environment series! Today’s post is about a tiny change that makes such a difference- Switching your browser to Ecosia!

Ecosia is like any other internet browser except one big difference- Ecosia uses 80% or more of its profits from advertising revenue to support tree planting projects. So by doing what you usually do, you’re planting trees… NO HIDDEN CATCH. It’s really that simple!

The app costs nothing to download and it’s really simple to use. I use it every day and I’ve managed to plant 55 trees from just using it as my search engine. I honestly can’t recommend it enough- download it now!!!!

Love as always,
Rosie

Chapter 2- Reusable Straws

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back! Another post to add to the series of helping the environment and today it’s on straws…

I am the WORST for using straws. So after seeing so many posts on social media about metal straws, I was ready to shop for the prettiest one I could find. I ended up buying a metal collapsible one, so I could travel with it and it wouldn’t take up a lot of space. I found this one on Amazon (link below) and it comes in a little pink box to keep it clean.

It’s such an easy thing to keep In your bag, especially if you travel a lot like me. If you prefer to have a normal straw, you can buy solid stainless steel ones too, often in a variety of colours and designs. (I’m yet to find any floral ones, Cath Kidston- Hurry Up!) Amazon has an abundance of them! Alternatively, even if you don’t want metal ones, single use paper straws are better than plastic! You can get the CUTEST Paper straws.

I hope you enjoyed this little post!

Love as always,
Rosie

Chapter 1- The Stojo Cup

Hello lovelies,

How are you all? I hope you’re all looking after yourselves during this stressful exam season! Today’s post is a start of a series of little ways to help environment…

As you are all aware, the climate change problem is getting worse and it’s all over the news and social media. So I thought I would do a little series of posts of little things you can do to help. I’m by no means a scientist and I’m not saying these tips and tricks will save the planet overnight, BUT if everyone does their bit, surely it will make a positive change in some way?

My first tip I wanted to share with you is a way to help reduce rubbish when it comes to having take away coffee and hot drinks. As an absolute coffee and tea lover, I am constantly using single use cups and straws. So I started using my reusable plastic Starbucks tumbler. This is a great solution because you can save 25p on every drink and you’re recycling… but I find it so annoying to have to carry around the flask for the rest of my day. My solution? Buy a Stojo.

What is a Stojo, I hear you ask? A Stojo is a collapsible pocket cup.

There are a few sizes, I personally got the Pocket Cup 12oz. You can buy them on Amazon or on the company website (Linked below!) They range around £10-15 and they have sooooo many colours (I got bright pink, obviously), they’re so cute!

Stojo

I have mine in my bag for university all the time and it’s so handy, especially as they take up barely any room. I hope you enjoyed this little post, look out for another post soon!

Love as always,
Rosie
