Download your bonus papers New year is a time when I like to declutter. In my household this is met with mild enthusiasm on the part of my daughter, who likes a tidy room but isn’t always keen on the tidying part; mild resistance on the part of my son, who develops a deep and sentimental attachment to any object that finds its way into his possession; and strenuous resistance from my partner, who takes the view that all manner of ‘useful things’ should be stored for an indefinite period of time until the day that they are needed (which, to be fair, they sometimes are). In this context, I have always thought of myself as a bit of a champion declutterer, so reading our feature A Life Less Cluttered (page 30)…

Photo comp winner! Our latest Instagram photography challenge theme was ‘morning’ and we loved this entry from Tammy (@tammymarshmallow_mylife) “One consistent factor of my mornings for many decades now (since reading an article in my mum’s magazine aged 14) has been to have a slice of lemon in hot water before anything else. If I’m away from home, the first thing into my bag is a lemon so I can start my day right. My family know that in the (extremely rare) event they decide to bring me breakfast/coffee in bed, I’ll still need my lemon tea first. So, no matter where I am in my life or where in the world, this picture pretty much starts my day.” Tammy wins this tea set by T2 worth £35 (t2tea.com). See last month’s shortlist…

Where there’s a will… Single use plastic packaging can be hard to avoid, but we’ve discovered a fantastic new initiative that pioneers a clever alternative to landfill – ecobricks. The premise is simple: take a plastic bottle and fill it with all of those bits of plastic packaging that can’t otherwise be recycled, turning it into a durable brick that can be used to build community projects, outdoor furniture and even walls. Find helpful guidelines for creating ecobricks over at www.ecobricks.org (getting the right density is vital) and once you’ve set up an account you can keep track of your personal ‘Plastic Transition Ratio’ – a great idea if you’re getting kids involved as they can measure their contribution. Not only do ecobricks reduce the amount of plastic being spread around the world,…

the climate researcher

Lisa Orme, 30, is a climate change researcher. For the past two years she has been working at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromsø, Norway and has recently moved to Dublin. I feel lucky. Researchers who are early in their careers are often in temporary contracts and without job security. I’ve just finished a two-year contract in Norway and will soon start a three-year position in Ireland. It can feel unsettling starting again somewhere completely new, but my work has given me amazing opportunities, like doing fieldwork in the Arctic. When I’m feeling unsure of what lies ahead, I remind myself of what I love about my job. It’s very levelling. I find true peace in nature. I relax by getting away from modern day life. I walk in the mountains a lot. The…
