I’m getting used to the breakfasts of porridge and homemade bread, and definitely straightforward.  It would be nice to have a bit of milk though, but I’ve not yet found a milkman delivery in my area (yet…).  However we’ve run out of homemade soup!  Disaster!  We do have some salad in the fridge but it’s all wrapped in plastic – the lettuce, cucumber, rocket.  My food planning has not quite worked out.

I’m still using my plastic toothbrush and plastic toothpaste tube which is frustrating me a little.  However, I've just subscribed to Bristle, a biodegradable toothbrush subscription service.  Although the bristles themselves are nylon, there's far less plastic than a regular toothbrush.  I'll keep you posted on how it works out.  I’ve also looked at tooth cleaning powder recipes, but you need a fair few ingredients for them, and I really don't know where to start finding them.  I have discovered that Euthymol comes in an aluminium tube, with only a metal cap, so I've ordered some of that for the time being.  Again, I'll let you know what I think of it.

Plastic count:

1 x cucumber wrapper

1 x lettuce wrapper

1 x rocket packet
