About Me

Hi, I’m Helen. First and foremost, I’m a mum, with three beautiful, very lively children. Myself and my husband run a business together from home and those two facts keep us pretty darn busy. So why why why have I decided to squeeze the Plastic Free Portal into my life??

It started as a simple conversation with my kids about how plastic is killing the turtles, followed by a frantic 30 minutes going through every cupboard in the house looking for the evil turtle killers in our home. I’ve spoken to a fair few people since then and so far, absolutely everyone has a desire to cut down on plastic, even if they’ve not done anything about it.

I figured I owed it to my kids, and to their future kids, to not just follow through on this myself, but also to help others do the same.  So in the menu, you’ll find a “shop” which has links to all the plastic free, or reduced plastic alternatives I could find.  It’s designed to be easy to navigate and is growing all the time.  If what you’re looking for isn’t there then feel free to let me know via the contact page.
