About Me

Hi! I'm Ashleigh!

I’m a writer based in the Northeast of England, and a mother to two beautiful children. I'm also the founder and creator of Sweet Sustainable Living Blog & Shop and let me tell you, we've come a long way on our journey! What started as a small blog about my general thoughts and musings has, with a little help from my friends, progressed into something so much more!

The Blog

The blog exists to share my experience of trying to live a sustainable, affordable “everyday” family life – with a particular focus on Eco-parenting. Why? Because I want the world to be a better place for my children, and all children, to grow up in.

Something key that I’ve learned on my journey so far, is that there are many ways to live a greener life and, even without access to high tech gadgets or expensive resources, we can each make a difference in our own way – and that’s a pretty empowering realization, don’t you think?

So, on this blog upon which you’ve gratefully stumbled, I’ll be sharing top tips for sustainable living, writing product reviews, and posting researched guidance to changes that can be made around the house. Just about everything I share on Sweet Sustainable Living comes from firsthand experience and, where it doesn’t, I’ll make that clear. 

When I'm not trying to save the world one plastic straw at a time, or stuffing cloth nappies, I also write short stories, film scripts, and other writing projects, and very very occasionally, we travel! From time to time, I'll share a little of this and that!

The Shop

The shop, much like my writing, has been inspired by my own real-life experiences! It came from an idea around a kit that could be taken into your birthing space, to assist in having a calm, empowering birthing experience. But then I thought... why stop there? And so it's growing, and growing. Everything I stock has been thoroughly researched and tested. All of my products are as Eco-Friendly as possible and ethically sourced! Hours and hours of time go into making sure that these are the best possible products!
