Join me as I try to put less food scraps in my compost bin and give them a second life instead. First on my list- green onions. Endless taco toppings, here I come.
A month ago, I began composting for the first time with a DIY bin. I’ve learned a lot of lessons along the way- in some ways, this particular method is working for me so far, and in some ways, it’s not.
Allow me to walk you through how to wash dishes, zero-waste style, without the luxury of a dishwasher.
Here is how to make your own dishwashing detergent- cheap, simple, chemical and plastic free, and zero waste!
Winter is rough on my hands. Finding a hand cream recipe that could soothe my dry, cracked skin was a big need of mine when making my own beauty products. Now I have this recipe and it works wonders!
Everyday I think about how I can try to live more sustainably and slow my overall consumption of things. Recently I decided to sew my own clothes.
Composting reduces landfill waste AND gives you free fertilizer. It’s nature’s trash can and it’s awesome. Here’s how to do it if you live in an apartment, like me.
Refusing rolled paper towels was one of the most difficult parts of my zero-waste transition. Now, I save money with one simple hack.
Think of how many pens, highlighters, plastic binders and folders, markers, etc. you’ve used in your lifetime. Where are they all at now? Plastic free writing utensils are a thing, y’all.
As I’ve mentioned previously, my zero-waste journey began when I was still dealing with acne as an adult and as a last resort, I starting making homemade skin products rather than using industrial products packaged in plastic and made with chemicals. This serum is one of them and I’m convinced it is liquid magic.
Avoiding those chemicals that come in a plastic tub never smelled so good.
Having a healthy mouth and a healthy planet are both totally obtainable. Here’s how.
