Larkhill is an eco-friendly glamping site in Carmarthenshire, West Wales, that my partner and I stayed at for my 23rd birthday. We chose to stay in the Bentwood Yurt, but there are currently four other structures you can stay in, including a Tipi and a Mongolian Ger. Each of these has been handmade by the owners, Fran and Tony and their children. It is a unique and, dare I say magical place to stay – despite us visiting in the winter. From the actual buildings to the play area with fairy houses, Larkhill is a lovely experience that has been handcrafted by people that really care about your experience and the environment.
According to Fairphone, the Fairphone 4 does everything like every other phone, except ruining the planet – I decided to put that to the test.
I am very aware that this could appear to be an advert so I’d like to start off by saying that this is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Fairphone. I am simply an enthusiastic customer!
Online shopping holds value. It can be more accessible for some, it gives you space to compare prices and brands, and there is more variety available. Unfortunately, despite there being some positive aspects of the online shopping experience, it has also exacerbated the problem of fast fashion and its impact on us as individuals and the earth. This is because it makes it more convenient, and in some cases cheaper, to shop.
