Join our 5 Days To a More Sustainable Home ecourse - It's FREE!

Caring for your home, your family and yourself, can be hard work. Making changes at home, trying to be more sustainable and take steps to create a home that is healthy, can feel impossible sometimes. Finances, Time, Skills - of all these things can get in the way of creating the home you want. It is easy to get overwhelmed.

But each small step you take, each small step we all take, makes a big, gorgeous, combined impact on the health of our planet, you, your family and your home. It is all connected.

You are not alone!! I feel the same way. Often. And so do many people in our community.

It is easy to give up and think it is all too hard, but you can make time to focus on the simple steps you can take.

Join our FREE 5 day e course to find out some of the small changes you can make to create a happy healthy more sustainable home, increase your health and wellbeing, and try some simple steps to sustainability.

I’m a newbie to all things sustainable, but Helen’s book had my interest piqued from the start. She covers lots of areas of sustainability – cooking, gardening, furniture restoration, and sustainable decorating – and makes some great points about the benefits of these practices, backed up with facts about environmental impacts. Would recommend her book to anyone looking for a simple, common-sense guide to sustainability - Bridgett McDonald, The Able Editor

Why get involved in creating a more sustainable home?

Time for change

If you are reading this you probably have a desire to make a shift in your home and your life. A desire for a life that is slower than your current one and a home which considers more than the latest decorating trends. The world gets on with it no matter what you do. You are just a teeny tiny spot when it comes to the overall picture, yet your actions have huge repercussions.

Consuming less

Living a life that considers more than yourself, your needs and desires for pretty things, or the pressure of “keeping up with the Joneses”, will also bring you gifts far more valuable than the latest big screen television. If you tune into what really matters to you as a human being, consider your impact on the planet, and decide to make a shift in the way you live, you will find that you have a much happier and healthier life.

Thanks everyone for a great month! I've really enjoyed spending time with you all, trying new things, learning from each other, and glimpsing into your beautiful homes and lives. The sense of community here has been warm and encouraging. Helen, thank you!  I found it so helpful to have some suggestions around organising and prioritising during this time of year when I am usually restless. It's been a great month!!
