Why we need this book
Autumn is a special time of year, when the heat and daylight slowly fade and the cooler darker nights bring freshness and calm. It’s when we can harvest, appreciate, and get ready.
This workbook is filled with practical and easy ways to create an Eco Autumn, supporting you to move towards a sustainable, frugal and environmentally friendly life.
We have split the book into 5 practical sections, each with 5 ideas – something to suit everyone.
What is in the book?
Here are just some of the ideas and activities in Eco-Friendly Autumn
Use it / Sort it
Get ready for winter with some gentle decluttering and some time saving home maintenance. We have included helpful information about menu planning, printable fridge labels and ideas for altruistic activities that are proven to increase well being. Don’t throw away old jeans because we have a whole load of upcycle ideas for them!
Opening up a whole new world of sharing and lending, this section covers foraging, seed saving as well as loads of other things you can borrow to make your life easier.
Combining money saving with eco living, the Swap it section of Eco-Friendly Autumn has ideas for plastic free swaps as well as a brilliant recipe for the best jam ever!
Fancy trying your hand at patchwork? We have full instructions and templates to get you going. There are some unusual makes in this section, cold cures from store cupboard ingredients, washing soap from conkers and all the recipes you need for a Zero Waste seasonal party.
Buy it / Thrift it
Save money and the environment by following the instructions to make hankies, with the easiest way to hem and turn the corners. We have listed ideas for things you could easily find secondhand that will make your Autumn warmer and fill your spring with flowers.
Each activity can be printed on it’s own and none of them need specialised equipment or lots of time to do.
