I spent nigh-on 30 years as a pescetarian. Revert for a month.
Ever since my young daughter was toilet trained I’ve noticed that I don’t throw all that much away any more.
I’m wondering if I can cut out all waste destined for landfill completely for the next 30 days.
This month I’ll be taking a break from social media. No Twitter, Facebook. Which sites constitute being social media?
This month I’ll be attempting to not spend any cash. Obviously I’ll still exchange money for goods and services but I’m hoping to see just how viable it is to go cashless. I certainly expect it to be a lot easier than the same experiment would have been even a few years ago.
I’m already a bit like the Queen (that’s the not a) in that I don’t really do cash.
I don’t mean “independent” as in going to the shops all by myself — I’ve been doing that for quite a while now along with dressing myself and packing my own bags when I travel.
Edinburgh is blessed with a multitude of fantastic independent shops; the city is fortunate to have them. Like a lot of people, I think I’m guilty of overlooking them in the name of convenience a little too often.
This month, I’ll not be giving my custom to any chain shops or supermarkets.
