Day five – weekend

No supermarket shop today – the delights of Brixton Village instead and the remains of the Christmas ham became a Twelfth Night pie. We spent no more than £6 on vegetables – vast salad onions, lemons, tomatoes and thyme (inserts vast photograph).

My other discovery today, and quite by chance, was a brilliant charity called WasteAid. One in three people globally don’t have their waste taken away and so they dump or burn it, leading to public health and environmental problems. WasteAid supports local people to become self-employed “recycling entrepreneurs”, turning ‘waste’ into wealth.

WasteAid’s intervention builds prosperity, improves health and protects the environment. Check out this short video:
