In Conversation With Kate From Just a Card

david-austin-british-flowers-week-homeofjuniperHave you heard about the #justacard campaign? As a small business owner, it is a campaign close to my heart.

Plastic Free July | What & Why


Have you ever taken a moment to think about the amount of plastic you use in a day? 

Plastic was and is an amazing invention. It has made things possible, which wouldn’t have been without it. But we have become very ‘throw-a-way’ with it, not everything we use plastic for we need to use plastic for. There are plenty of natural or more sustainable materials we can use instead. 

Plastic Free July is all about choosing not to use single-use plastic in July. The aim of this campaign is to highlight the use of single use plastic and show you how you can live without it.

Remember it is all about the little positive changes. Read more
