Hi all! Not much is going on chez Robyn at the moment, other than a lot of gardening and a sudden interest in changing my lifestyle to become as ecologically friendly as possible. I foresee a new series with a permaculture-focussed sleuth on the horizon, …Read More
Who Gives A Crap?
My daughter recently told me about Who Gives A Crap toilet paper. It’s fully recycled paper (or bamboo for their premium brand). They donate 50% of their profits to build toilets in places where they don’t have them. They deliver it to your house – …Read More
