To milk or nut mylk? – debunking the calcium myth.

The subject of calcium and where you get it from is a hotly debated one.

Are you enjoying your daily chemical cocktail? – key takeaways from our Organic Food and Beauty Workshop

How to live a chemical free life can seem incredibly daunting when you begin thinking about changing your diet, beauty regime and overall lifestyle, with the average woman putting on about 515 synthetic chemicals every day – a cosmetic cocktail of industrial produced chemicals that have been linked to cancer, infertility, hormonal imbalances, and, in some cases, rather than delivering the ‘anti-ageing’ promise, are actually causing us to age faster.

Wisdom in re-wilding your child

Wisdom in re-wilding your child

Most adult New Zealanders will recall childhoods filled with memories of roaming the neighbourhood freely. Telling mum where you were going and being home in time for tea was one of few restrictions we had to respect. Minor cuts, scrapes, dirty finger nails and grass stains were par for the course. This was true even for urban children for whom backyards, pavements and parks offered the outdoor scope. Sadly, this right-of-passage is diminishing fast in the developed world.

Activated Charcoal – what it is and why you should be rubbing it all over your teeth

Activated charcoal has been used for decades as an antidote for drugs and poison, as well as water filtration. But in addition to this it is a great remedy for general detoxification, digestion issues, gas and bloating. We encounter toxins in our every day lives from the processed foods we consume to the air we breathe, and so it is important to help our body eliminate them to promote healthy bodily functioning.

The Buzz on the Buzzy Bee - what you can do to help.

They may be small, but their importance in the world as we know it is beyond our understanding. Bees are some of the hardest working creatures on the planet, working tirelessly around the clock to make many of the things we take for granted (like human development itself on the earth!) possible.

A life without plastic – is it possible?

A life without plastic – is it possible?

Food packaging accounts for most of our plastic waste, and its often completely unnecessary. Example number one - I love cucumber, and its frustrating to go to the local supermarket and not be able to buy one that doesn’t come sealed in a long plastic tube. So this is where I encounter my first plastic-free-living problem. Do I buy the shrink-wrapped cucumber, or avoid cucumbers entirely for the rest of my life… So now you may be asking, how hard is it to live plastic free? Well, lets dive right in to the subject.

Plastic Microbeads are nasty

Plastic microbeads? Where you might find them and why they are a threat to the health of our waterways.
