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

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

Project Pan: Powder

I've had this post scheduled for weeks, but I kept pushing it because even though replacing an essential make up product or toiletry item was in my exceptions list for my no-buy month, I was still doing a no-buy month. But if I'm going to get something that could be considered clean or low-waste beauty … Continue reading Project Pan: Powder

Mid-Week Procrastination

This has been a very heavy week at work, I work with many Indigenous people and serve Indigenous communities and the news of the mass grave in Kamloops has hit them all very hard particularly and has hit the entire country very hard. We ended up scraping (appropriately and mostly my idea) my big project … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination

April Empties

Compared to March it looks like I didn't use anything up this month! Mostly, I just finished up some samples that I have had for several months. The nice thing about a Project Pan is that you actually do use those random things that you have accumulated over your years of purchasing. I do see … Continue reading April Empties

Obsessions: April 24

I'm rounding out the Earth Week content with a themed obsessions post! From drag-tivism to my favourite shops in Ontario to access low waste products - these are a few of my favourite things. Instagram Obsession: @Pattiegonia I adore Pattie Gonia and Wyn Wiley equally. They raise such awareness for outdoors-people who don't look like … Continue reading Obsessions: April 24

Mid-Week Procrastination: Earth Week Edition

We're sticking to a theme this week (which means that next week's MWP post will be super full of fun, random stuff- hint, hint). But the ultimate Earth Week procrastination item would be to grab some shoes, a garbage bag, and a set of tongs and a container (if you live in an area where … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination: Earth Week Edition

Earth Week: Low Waste House Cleaning

I am a fastidious house cleaner. Maybe excessively so, I just find it so much more pleasant, but it has not escaped my desire to use less plastic. I think I have made great strides here, but there are still areas I can work on. I also don't think that there is any increased costs … Continue reading Earth Week: Low Waste House Cleaning
