Remember The Wonder Years?

I’m currently re-watching “The Wonder Years” during my crafty moments and I’ve come across many lessons and also memories. Somehow is one of those undervalued series that could, among some of those from the 90s, make a come-back. Now, it makes more sense wince I’m watching the series as an adult, back then it was just the cute guy Kevin and wondering if he would end up with Winnie, but now it has a deeper meaning.

Can we fight it all? Zero Waste, Plastic-Free, Consumerism & Food Waste

Lately we have been struggling to take the “right” decisions. This year we started, together as a couple, the commitment to reduce our plastic consumption as much as we can, but to reduce food waste as well.
