About Me

All About Me

Hi! And welcome to a Rose Tinted World. Here is where I share my ways to become more eco-friendly and zero waste. I want to show you show you how you can save money by making and sewing your own zero waste products. 

Your support means the world to me, thank you.

But I thought it was time for a formal introduction so here goes. I’m Jo, I’m 52 and I live in Leeds in the UK.

I’m a dentist by profession but I currently volunteer as a school governor, and am taking a little sabbatical from my career as I look after my little girl and Edwardian home.

I write and produce content about sewing and sustainability, whilst working. I’ve always been aware about the environmental impact on my lifestyle but I didn’t really get serious about it until I have my own child seven years ago. I want my daughter to grow up in a cleaner safer fairer world. 

A Simpler Life

After having a child I realised that I had built up so much clutter in my life, and so I decided to live a bit more simply.

My life has become more about zero waste and leaving this planet for our children. After years of collecting things, I am starting to declutter and reuse/upcycle instead of just throwing away. And I would love to bring all my hints and tips to these pages to share with you.

I hope that you enjoy reading.



My space is all about progress not perfection – we can all make small changes to become more planet friendly.  it’s really not about being perfect, but if we all make small changes it can have a big impact. I’m  always looking for new ways we can lower our waste by making swaps.
