Welcome to The Sustainable Home Hub, an award-winning eco blog and directory. We are all about inspiring action for our planet while tackling climate grief & eco-anxiety, and shining a light on people who are beacons of hope for our planet.

I am Helen Edwards, an award winning writer, 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 helping you to take smll, simple, realistic and actionable steps, to a more sustainable life, while reducing eco-anxiety and climate grief.

We are constantly overwhelmed with the devastating impacts of our climate emergency, with the plastic pollution tsunami, extinction crisis, loss of habitats and eco-systems, and the ultimate demise of human beings. It is easy to become filled with guilt and despair.

While we need to share these messages, take as much action as we can ourselves, and keep speaking up and fighting for change at all levels, we also need to acknowledge our  grief, sadness, anxiety, and feelings that all is lost. The collective grief is growing and adults and children across the globe, are feeling the weight of hopelessness. But without hope, there is nothing.

I hope you will join us in being beacons for Lighthouse Earth, so we can take inspired action, for all of our futures.  Sign up here for our newsletter so you don't miss updates, new stories and info about my books, resources and events.

Let's change the conversation. Let's acknowledge our sadness and grief about our planet, but also, let's stand together and see the joy in our planet so we can stay on the path to keeping her safe and healthy. Let's do this together, with kindness and hope, for our children's futures.

Look for the helpers and be the light.

old truck upcycled into a car bed - Perry Hudson Attachments 3:32 AM (4 hours ago) to me Ever since I started building these truck beds I wanted them to look like what I remembered going down the road as a kid. I build a cabinet that goes in rear window with a gun rack , later on I started putting a mirror in it as well to give it depth and put off more light reflection from the dome reading light I put in. The tailgates are functional and there’s faux dual exhaust . Bed rails bolt right up to head and footboard for queen or king. Last but not least the LED lights can be operated by either a manual dimmer switch or a wireless key fob on a novelty key chain which is a detail customers love.
