I've been inspired by the Plastic Free Choices calendar,...

Here's a little run down of some of the special days and upcoming celebrations over the coming days (not an exhaustive list, by any means... there's also the beginning of the LGBT+ History Month and Vasant Panchami, and more, but I just wanted to focus on a few, before I have to head off and collect my son from nursery, ha ha!):   31st...
