Hello, I'm Rachel a 26 year old writer, knitter and activist living in the Oxfordshire countryside with my husband. Life With The Roof Down is a slow and sustainable fashion and lifestyle blog where I document my journey trying my best to help our planet and its people through buying better, creating a handmade wardrobe, living in tune with the seasons and trying to be as low waste as possible. 

I often have a lot of friends and family wanting to be more sustainable and ethical but they just aren't sure where to start. I think this is the case for a lot of people so I try my best to share helpful tips, information and inspiration to encourage people on their journey to living a slower more sustainable way of life. 

None of us will be able to do sustainability perfectly but if we all try to do better we can make a huge impact on our planet. Never underestimate your power to make change happen, individual small actions build up to big changes for our world and its people. 

One of the biggest ways we can help our planet is to live in tune with nature and so I try to live a slow life governed by the seasons. I share my love for nature and country living here as well ideas on how we can all embrace each season as it comes. 

I hope you find this space to be useful and inspiring on your journey to building a better planet.
