Another fresh new year is here. As poet Rainer Maria Rilke said, 'The new year is full of things that have never been'. So, with the excitement of opening a blank notebook on the first page, we have the opportunity to write a new story for 2013.
The turn of the year is a gentle reminder to celebrate life; to fill our days with laughter, love and peace. And to decide how you want the rest of the year to pan out.
Eden is with you every step of the way, to help you create a lifestyle of working with nature, helping you to organise and structure your home and garden, and even offer tips for a healthy, home-grown diet.
For a healthy 2013
These recycled coffee cup weekly planners make great meal planners. Taking five minutes to plan your weekly menu out is a great way to save money and eat more healthily. No more-last minute, 'oh let's just get fish and chips' to fill the gap.
For the orderly home
Pop an Eden Project calendar on the wall to keep tabs of what's going on in the week. It'll reduce those 'I TOLD you I had swimming on Thursday' arguments'! This calendar is full of beautiful images of Eden throughout the year - a little corner of tranquillity in a hectic world.
Organise the office
Start afresh with a brand new stationery kit, full of sharp pencils made out of recycled packaging, and a ruler and pen made from corn on the cob.
The NHS claims that 'the average chopping board can contain 200% more bacteria than the average toilet seat'. Hygiene experts therefore recommend you use separate chopping boards for red meat, poultry, vegetables and fish to help reduce cross-contamination. Our coloured edge bamboo chopping boards are a great way to help you keep your food separate, and to keep organised in the kitchen. And, as they're made out of bamboo, they're naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Clever, hey?
Get the garden in check
Hang this chalkboard either inside or outside to jot down your gardening to-do list, such as dates for staggering your vegetables, and your seed inventory. The pack, designed exclusively for Eden, also contains reusable labels and three packets of seeds (chilli, lavender and sunflower) and comes with reusable labels so you know what you've planted where.
Keep your garden tools tidy
Tidy away your tools and prevent them from being battered by the elements with this unusual gardening bag. Handmade out of reused cement sacks, it's waterproof and sturdy. It's made by a cooperative that promotes recycling and reusing in India, while paying the workers a fair wage.
