About ‘Dan Yr Haul’   Leave a comment

Hello World!

This blog is going to chronicle the progress I make in following one of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2012. I intend to avoid buying anything new for the next year, with a few clearly unavoidable exceptions such as toilet paper, food, knickers…

The main idea is to save the planet, at least a teeny tiny fraction, by not buying into the consumerist black hole vortex. For example, I have been as guilty as any – probably more so -for buying plastic doo dahs that were meant to save me immeasurable amounts of time (never did) but contributed to the demand and planet stockpile of stuff made from plastics.

If I need something I will get second hand (upcycling if necessary) recycle or reuse other materials, or simply do without.

In case you’re wondering- the name ‘dan yr haul’ is Welsh for ‘under the sun’- coming from the saying ‘ nothing new…’ . so ‘Nothing new for 2012.

Wish me well!

June
