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

Wednesday Wants: Beauty

So this is slightly different, not only is this things I want, it's also things I have an order placed on it. But I have run out of a ton of makeup and skincare items, which is great from the perspective of my Project Pan, but of course I'm out of the things I'm actually … Continue reading Wednesday Wants: Beauty

August Empties

I was actually pretty surprised when I opened my empties shoe box and saw how little there was. This is probably a product of my no-buy month, but I felt like I used a lot up this month and I definitely need to do a skincare order/shop very soon. I'm going to get more into … Continue reading August Empties
