Welcome to The Sustainable Home Hub, where we are all about people and planet. I am Helen Edwards, an award winning blogger and children's author. I am Mama to 3 beautiful sons and I have just finished my PhD in psychology. Our focus is on reducing eco-anxiety, removing barriers to sustainability, and helping you to take small simple actionable steps, towards a sustainable home and life.

Celebrate diversity, love your own style, and connect more with each other. Stop worrying about what other people think and more about what you can do to be happier, healthier, and create a home you love that's better for you, your family and our planet.
