Welcome to The Pepperbox Couture Blog…
Living in an off grid powered tiny house? Concerned enough about your carbon footprint that you only buy local, fresh, in season produce? You use only reusable bags and buy only secondhand clothing, or sustainable organically grown natural fabrics whilst you sip your alternative nut mylk spicy chai latte……all by choice?….. Yeah, Nah? I mean even if you are just have a passing interest in green living, or day dream occasionally about a simplified life outside the ‘work-to-live’ rat race that consumes our prime years, there is something here for you.
Otherwise – you’ve stumbled upon the wrong blog and you are free to leave at any time.
Just kidding, you can stay, this blog is a hodgepodge mix of all sorts of greeny adventures, DIY projects, art and design inspiration, eco trends and some wonderful disasters – all here, like a giant kaleidoscope of crazy. Stay, grab a cuppa and have a browse and a chuckle.
I mean half the worlds in lock down – you have time.
My husband and I are full time employees of the work-to-live-rat-wheel of life… But we fiercely day dream about a simplified life. As a result we have made incremental shifts in the way we think and do things and can say with confidence we are dabblers in the-high-wire-balancing-act that is sustainability.
We live in a tiny house (I affectionately describe it as – a crap-shack) in the forest, grow a vege garden, have cheeky chickens for eggs and buy everything we can secondhand – by choice. We source DIY materials from recycle stores and refurbish furniture, mend and sew clothes, make our own cleaning products, and keep our larder stocked with grains, flour, and dried legumes in glass jars. Generally we live light on the earth and more importantly within our means.
This blog is really a pick and mix with no rhyme or reason – depicting our kiwi life and how we live it.
