Self-care. It’s SO IMPORTANT. And I’m not talking about getting your nails done or having a fun night out (although those things are lovely!) I’m talking about the really important things. Why are we so bad at taking care of ourselves sometimes? Or is that only me?
Let’s talk money! Does going Zero Waste save money, or cost more money? Some people swear it saves money, while others find it expensive. So what’s the truth? In my experience, it depends on a lot of factors.
How do you live a low-waste lifestyle with a reluctant partner or family member? By request, I’m tackling that topic today.
In 2019 I resolved to drastically reduce my waste–garbage and recycling. I first wrote about it in a blog post in March, three months into the year. Since it’s now June, I figured it’s time for another quarterly update!
This is a blog post I’ve been itching to write for a long time. I keep drafting it in my head, and then deadlines and everyday life get in the way. Oh, #momlife!
My 2019 New Year’s Resolution was to become more eco-friendly. The funny thing is that I used to be much better at this. When I was a teenager, and during my undergrad years at university, I was a hippie! Anyone who knew me during that time would attest to it: I brought my own container to restaurants for leftovers, I wore hemp clothing, and I worked at a health food store (a store that I still love and frequent).
What happened to that hippie girl? I’m not sure, to be honest. She never truly went away, but she stepped aside for a while while I took on an office job, planned a wedding, went back to school, and had a baby. Although I always prioritized natural products, I fell into the convenience trap. But now I feel like that side of me is back, full-force, and full of excitement.
