Tips for your haven

This month, we've decided to start a theme for each month, so you know what you can look forward to on our site. For November, our theme is House, Garden, and Style.

I'm really looking forward to sharing our brand new Green Swaps with you. For the first one, we'll let you know some simple cleaning swaps to make in your home to earn you serious eco-brownie points, along with health benefits to boot.

We'll follow on from our spring growing tips to help you have a productive vegie patch to take you through to the end of the year, with tips on what to plant now for your family's Christmas dinner table.

Recently, we covered the seriously ethical Sleep Made-To-Measure products for you, but now we're also going to have a review of the pillow up for you (giving you time to take advantage of the 15 per cent discount that's valid until the end of the year).

It's just a few weeks since we announced the winners of the Green Lifestyle Awards, but I'm still finding all the new products, companies, and people that we found out about so inspiring, so you'll hear more about them too.

In terms of fashion and style, we're profiling many of the winners of our recent Green Lifestyle Awards, including this profile of Carlie Ballard here. And we'll also have a chat to Rachel from Moonbird PJs in the next week.

December's theme will be Food, Family, and Travel – so there's everything you need to end the year comfortably sustainably.
