Inflation and climate change

You don’t have to be an economist to see inflation all around you. All costs have gone up, groceries, gasoline, clothing and other goods.

In addition, we can see the effects of climate change in our daily lives. For the past few years, temperature variations have surprised us. Storms are multiplying in virulence, and the melting of the ice at the North Pole is in the news.

We must not let ourselves be overwhelmed by discouragement.

My sister, an eco-responsibility fanatic, tells me that every gesture counts.

These reasons motivate me to rack my brain to spend less and try not to waste. We can take the example of the habits of our parents and grandparents who lived during the war. Out of necessity, they developed ways to save.

I hope to inspire you with these three small actions out of the ordinary.

Saving money to help the planet

Those who follow my blog know that I am a lipstick fanatic. It’s my go-to for moisturizing my lips and looking less tired. A brush designed to apply this makeup product allows you to use a smaller amount. You can also go to the bottom of the tube to use the whole stick.

Recycle to help the planet

I always end up breaking the lids off my teapots. Instead of getting rid of them, I try to find a way to recover them. Here is my latest find.

I made a bird feeder out of this teapot. A good ball of absorbent cotton in the spout keeps the seeds from falling. I used a clip in the handle and hung it on a hook. And it works, I saw birds pecking at the offered seeds, but I have yet to catch a photo of them in action.
