Daily Somethings are putting the kettle on with the most eco kettles around.

First up is Eco Kettle. The new Eco Kettle 3 will help save you time and energy by boiling the exact amount of water you need and now features a temperature control. With its unique, patented dual chamber design, you can fill your kettle up to 1.5 litres, and then transfer the amount of water you want to boil into the heating chamber simply by pressing the plunger. The water you don't use is ready and waiting for the next time you want to use it.

Next up is the the Vektra kettle - a smart eco-friendly electric kettle that incorporates vacuum flask technology to boil water efficiently then keep it hot for up to four hours. This means you don’t continuously re-boil, saving money, time and energy.

Water stays hot enough for tea for up to two hours, at around 80°C and hot enough for coffee for up to four hours after boiling, at around 68°C.

The kettle’s sides remain cool, even when the kettle is boiling. It has a lever controlled anti-spill stopper, non-drip pouring spout, and a secure, comfortable handle for safe, easy use in the busiest of homes and offices.

The Vektra Kettle has 18/8 grade stainless steel inside and out, the only plastics used on the product are the trim and handle. The kettle is free from banned substances while also being CE certified for safety.

And lastly for those who love to be in the wilderness. There is the BioLite KettlePot is the perfect accessory to go with the BioLite CampStove if you’re a lover of the great outdoors and a serial camper. The KettlePot can be used for making your morning coffee or cooking a meal for four at the end of the day, and with the combination of the unique pouring top and clever CampStove nesting design you can pack a single piece of cookware without sacrificing functionality or space. (ps and you can charge your phone while your cook.

I just had to throw this on in there too. The BioLite BaseCamp converts heat into usable electricity for large-format cooking and charging.

Using only fallen branches or small pieces of firewood, make wood-fired meals and charge devices all at the same time. It's a smart alternative to fossil-fueled stoves, creating an elevated cooking fire that burns smarter than any fire you're used to. I have just added this to my wish list. http://www.biolitestove.com/ #putthekettleon #kettle #eco #biolite #tea #englishtea #herbaltea

Oopsy Daily. Daily Somethings missed a post yesterday. It has been crazy busy the last few days. Today is all about luscious locks and the best haircare products that can achieve it.

First off there is pure luxury brand Rahua. 1A 100% natural hair care range. For centuries, women from the Quechua-Shuar tribes have travelled deep into the Amazon rainforest to prepare a highly potent, restorative oil they call Rahua (ra-wa) – believing it to be the secret to their thick, flowing, lustrous hair. In the 1990s, these women shared Rahua’s power with renowned New York stylist and colorist Fabian Lliguin, a native Ecuadorian of Quechua descent.

They are an earth-friendly, sustainable business in partnership with women from Amazonian nations such as Waorani, Achuar, Quichua, Quechua and Shuar. Rahua and ungurahua oils are sourced and processed by these women and men in accordance with the traditional methods that have been passed down for generations. https://rahua.com/

Next up is Boucleme a haircare system especially designed for curly girls. Their simple 3 step system cleanse, condition, define will give you beautiful, shiny and frizz free curls. As nature intended.http://boucleme.co.uk/

Then there is John Masters, Less is More, Weleda and Neals Yard Remedies for their gorgeous range of natural and organic haircare. Have a fab Thurday!!! @rahua @boucleme #rahua #boucleme #lessismore #haircare #lusciouslocks #locks #hair #artist #surfacepatterndesigner #advertising

Daily Somethings are feeling the BLING today with the best ethical jewellry.

At Ingle & Rhode, they don’t just guarantee that our diamonds are conflict-free, they guarantee that they are truly ethical diamonds, cut and polished by adults working with fair pay and conditions, and produced with due care to minimise any impact on the environment. They can trace our diamonds back to their mine of origin.

During the 1990s and the first decade of this century, hundreds of thousands of people were killed in wars fuelled by diamonds, across Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Liberia and Sierra Leone. Even today, blood diamonds from the Cote d’Ivoire, eastern DRC, and Zimbabwe continue to enter the market. Furthermore, many diamonds, even conflict-free diamonds, are cut and polished in sweatshop conditions, often by children, for wages that are inadequate for even the most basic standard of living

They source Canadian diamonds, that are mined under strict regulations imposed by the government of the Northwest Territories, and cut and polished according to guidelines established by the Council for Responsible Jewellery Practices. They are fully traceable, and the larger stones are laser-inscribed.

They have also found ethical sources for almost all types of coloured gemstones, including ruby, sapphire, emerald, tanzanite, peridot, amethyst, aquamarine, citrine, and tourmaline.

Most of their coloured gemstones come from small-scale mining cooperatives where the wealth generated by mining is directly retained by the local communities. Others come from ethical producers in the US and Australia. Our gemstones are all cut and polished in ethical working conditions, many at the Surat Diamond Workers Cooperative in Gujarat, India. Here, wages are calculated on fair trade principles, and employees are entitled to paid holiday, sick leave, and maternity leave.
