What I’m Buying in October

The one thing about writing these posts basically mid-month is that I've already bought nearly everything on this list and now I need to stop shopping, especially since I accidentally ordered the wrong item because I'm an idiot who doesn't pay attention and only noticed after it shipped and now I can't change it. Anyways: … Continue reading What I’m Buying in October

September Empties

If I have noticed anything writing these posts it's that I follow a cycle, extreme waste reduction to hyperconsumption to feeling guilty about spending so much on beauty products and consuming so much plastic packaging, to not buying anything and then it starts again. And I am definitely in a not buying anything phase, even … Continue reading September Empties

Getting back into waste reduction

As per usual with my birthday, I got a little reflective last week. And I realized that I've really been slacking on the whole zero waste/low waste thing. I used to be very into it, kind of around the whole girl boss, peak hustle culture, doing everything to the utmost and to esthetic perfection, the … Continue reading Getting back into waste reduction

June Empties

After a few months of really hefty empties posts it feels very nice to have a slightly more normal level of empties this month. I also am slightly annoyed with myself because three of these empties are because I can't resist samples/trial sizes, particularly the Ouai samples because I requested them, whereas I didn't even … Continue reading June Empties

May Empties

I've been on a bit more of a buying moment lately than a use up moment, and I have been using what I buy so I have no guilt about it, but I need to put a freeze on the buying and really lean back into the Project Pan and get some stuff used up. … Continue reading May Empties

A Full Year of Project Pan

I thought it would be interesting to reflect on a full year of tracking the empties that I used up throughout the year. So overall, I don't know how effective it was, I still have a lot of product, but the majority of it is stuff that I use every day now, I have a … Continue reading A Full Year of Project Pan

October Empties

When I picked up my empties box today I thought it must be packed full because it was so heavy. It was decently full, but I think that most of the weight came from the couple empty glass containers that were in it rather than a great abundance of used up product. I also have … Continue reading October Empties

Low-Waste Swaps I Want to Make

I am one the verge of running out of several things at close to the same time. And in my opinion, they are things that I think I can easily (although maybe not inexpensively) swap out for lower-waste/cleaner alternatives. The point I have come to with living lower waste and reducing my impact is that … Continue reading Low-Waste Swaps I Want to Make

Waste Reduction Week: Things I no longer buy living low waste

Happy Waste Reduction Week fellow Canadians! I've been enjoying a bunch of random YouTube videos lately, including in the "things I no longer..." vein, and while I'm definitely not going to be starting a YouTube channel anytime soon (but I'll never say never!) I'm loving a lot of these trends and want to write blog … Continue reading Waste Reduction Week: Things I no longer buy living low waste

September Empties

September felt like a big use-up month. I think that is more because of the GoCleanCo fall challenge and cleaning out my bathroom (I didn't include those items in here, I didn't use them up, but I might do a round-up of what I'm getting rid of in that clean out to see if we … Continue reading September Empties
