1.5L brewed overnight in the fridge
2x Twinings English Breakfast Decaffinated Tea
1x Tetley Forest Fruits Infusion
Once Bub has gone to bed, I have an hour or so to myself before I head to sleep too. It’s my time to enjoy my hobbies like playing my Kalimba and drinking tea. 🍵
It’s late so a decaffinated tea with the fruity infusion really relaxes and won’t keep me up. The bold tea is really comforting and is always refreshing after a long day. 🍵
Like and enjoy till next teatime! 🍵

Saying goodbye to single use beverage bottles is green goal is one that I think will be making a huge difference in my waste creation and disposal. Check out this link for some facts & stats about plastic water bottles: https://www.banthebottle.net/bottled-water-facts/
After many years of living on my own I moved back in with my parents (that’s a story for another time). I’ve had to make a lot of adjustments as I’ve gone from running a minimal waste household to blending into their more conventional lifestyle. At first, I tried to make accommodations and found myself falling into old habits out of convenience. My parents ALWAYS have cases of single use disposable plastic bottles available and it ended up taking a little bit of effort to avoid grabbing one while on the go. I’ve been recycling all the bottles, which makes me a little money when I get the deposit back but I still feel awful for even living under the same roof with this source of waste. This year, I have decided that I will not buy or use single use beverage containers. I will use my filtered water pitcher to refill my bottles, create my own seltzer in reusable bottles, drink my coffee and tea from reusable on the go mugs, and bring my own cup while eating at places that have on the go beverages. So far this has been working really well. I told the people I spend time with about my goal for accountability and I keep a reusable hot/cold cup on me. I have also used my reusable drink bottles while traveling and on the go without issue. As this habit becomes second nature I can feel really good about the amount of trash I am keeping out of the waste stream and the resources I am conserving by sticking to reusables.
p.s. I have recently had the amazing opportunity to cross paths on social media with an entrepreneur based out of NJ who is cleaning up local beaches and creating beautiful night lights from the littered beverage bottles he finds. The best part is, the profits get used to support more beach cleanups. Check out: http://cleanoceancreations.com/ for more info on this incredible project or to get involved.
As we continue our break from alchohol and caffiene, this is our go-to to beat the afternoon energy crash: Mate. ⭐️⭐️ We first tried mate when we were hiking in Peru as an alternative to coffee, and we’ve been in love since! 💚 Check our our blog and learn how to make mate! (Spoiler alert -it’s REALLY easy) #ensemblcooks#howwecometogether
