Reduced Plastic Touring
Over the next couple of months I have calculated that my
total flight footprint = 5.64 metric tons of CO2e. This is due to the majority of travelling/touring being done through flying, which is understandable due to it often being the quickest and potentially cheapeest option.
However, it is doing increasingly damage to the environment.
That is why I have decided to try reduced plastic touring. It is as simple as taking a water bottle to refill instead of purchasing a new one at every terminal shop.
Here are a few of the products that I have been - using with the environment (and turtles) in mind;
3. Bamboo Toothbrush by Humble Brush - Boots
4. Bamboo cotton swabs - ASDA
5. Toothy Tabs & Mouthwash Tabs - Lush (Toothpaste alternative)
6. Portable blender by Blendjet - Online (Smoothie making alternative)

"A Celebration of Women in Piping" - Celtic Connections
19th Jan 2020
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Strathclyde Suite
"Building on Limerick-born uilleann piper Louise Mulcahy’s extensive research into her female forebears on the instrument, this special collaborative show comprehensively demolishes macho bagpipe stereotypes, with an all-women line-up representing diverse traditions and territories. Also on the Irish side, Mulcahy is joined by Cork native Máire Ní Ghráda, with Glasgow’s Sheila Friel (of Friel Sisters fame) and Londoner Marion McCarthy representing the wider diaspora. From South Uist, Alana MacInnes plays both Highland pipes and smallpipes, while fellow Scot Robyn Ada McKay draws on Cape Breton and Irish as well as home-grown influences. Completing the line-up, Breton-born Enora Morice is an award-winning member of Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band."
