Using your garden to deal with rising air pollution

Air pollution is a potentially an epidemic in the making. With 40,000 deaths in the UK each year linked to toxic air levels, and the potential for the first death certificate to have ‘toxic air’ cited as the primary cause of death, it is an invisible killer we shouldn’t ignore.

But what can we do about it?

Obviously, paying attention to our carbon footprint is one way to fight back against the rising toxin levels in the air. Another is to put something in place that will clean the current state of the air.

Competition – Win a month’s supply of Sudocrem Skin Recovery Cream

Today I’m happy to share with you a giveaway for a month’s supply of Sudocrem’s new Skin Recovery Cream. It’s silky smooth and makes your skin feel wonderful. I get quite dry skin at this time of year, and by using the cream before bed, I’ve seen a difference when I wake up in the mornings. Plus I’ve only been using it for 5 days.

Living close to the beach and of course being out in the garden all Summer. We have had the most gorgeous hot weather, and I do use factor 50 sunscreen due to my fair skin. But inevitably my skin needs a little time to recover from the sun.

Blog Tour – The Tissue Veil by Brenda Bannister

Book Description

What if you discovered a hundred-year-old diary under your floorboards – and then found references in it to yourself? Or if you lived in 1901, yet kept seeing glimpses of a girl from modern times? And what if both of you had problems that only the other could really understand? Emily and Aysha live in the same Stepney house and an inexplicable link develops between them, fuelled by Aysha’s discovery of a journal and Emily’s sightings of a ‘future ghost’. Each takes courage from the other’s predicament – after all, what’s a hundred years between friends?
