Book Description

It’s never been more important to be mindful of what we consume. This book will help you to make 25 small but meaningful life swaps to help reduce waste. For example, trade in your disposable face wipes and replace them with washable pads; make beeswax fabric wraps and elasticated covers so that you never have to buy single-use plastic food wrap again; make a sturdy shopping tote to replace single-use plastic versions.


Packed with all the easy-to-follow instructions and friendly sewing tips you expect from Debbie Shore, this book also contains hints and tips for face scrubs, bath salts and more to use with your new projects, or to make a perfect eco-friendly gift.
