I’m delighted to be featuring an author I love and admire, Lindsay Miles of Treading My Own Path. You may know her from her blog or Instagram profile, or from her first book, Less Stuff: Simple zero-waste steps to a joyful and clutter-free life. Now Lindsay has a new book: The Less Waste No Fuss Kitchen, and I’m sure you’re going to love it as much as I did! (PS. I also have a giveaway on my Instagram, so check it out!)Continue reading “Interview with Lindsay Miles, author of The Less Waste No Fuss Kitchen”

Massive disclaimer on this post: It’s OKAY to not use this time to “be productive” or “make the most of it.” These are challenging times. You’re allowed to be upset (I certainly am.) It’s okay if all you manage is to get through the day.
That being said, I’ve received a lot of questions recently about how we can continue (or start!) our eco-friendly lifestyles during COVID-19. Of course, we can’t go out with our Zero Waste kits or refuse as much single-use plastic. It’s disheartening for sure; however, think of what else you’re doing anyway! You’re probably already driving less, making your tea/coffee at home, and so on. So if you are wondering what else you can do during this time, this list is for you. And if you’re looking to help encourage others, please feel free to share it with your friends.
I’ve been doing more yoga lately in the name of self-care and it occurred to me that I should share my DIY mat cleaner with all of you! A few spritzes of this spray leaves my mat fresh and smelling lovely. And of course, it can be customized to your own preference by using your favourite essential oils.
