Using less plastic and switching to eco products it takes time, especially when so many brands are greenwashing and making us believe we are buying truly eco products from them. Using only a few products made that transfer and cleaning so much easier, healthier and cheaper for me. This is how.
…. for more and less eco-conscious people. Gift ideas for Activists, open minded eco-conscious people and also for those not-so-eco-conscious uncle. How and what can we buy them, without a part of us dying inside? I have a few ideas for all of them. Hope they help you out.
With so many products on the market, it´s really hard to make the right decision today. What´s really natural or eco.

To help you during this Plastic-free July challenge I put together a list of Plastic-free swaps, to help you find an alternative.
Hi fellow earthlings, 5th of June was World environment day and today is World Oceans day. I know there was also World Jo-Jo day and World VCR day in between, but I hope you can agree with me that those two …
Cutting plastic out of your life is a process. Don´t feel bad if you have a lot of plastic in your bathroom right now. Use what you have and recycle the bottles. If you don´t use some of the products, sell them or just give them away if they are still good. And after that buy more consciously, DIY some products, experiment. I hope I can make even more products at home in the future, but right now I have all I need.

About 70-80% of tea bags are made from compostable paper while the remaining 20-30% contains heat-resistant polypropylene.

This is just something the brands will never share with us.
My way of showing you that we all fail sometimes. Hope they make you feel a little bit better, give you some hope and a push to give it a try. Going zero waste doesn´t happen over night. It takes time and a lot of researching, especially if you don´t live in a city and your options are limited. It´s about trying your best. It´s about producing less waste. Every plastic that we avoid buying matters.
July is a Plastic Free Month. It´s also time when a lot of people move to the seaside to enjoy their holidays. And by staying by the sea, we need to be extra careful what we bring and use. There is no trash man, no cleaning lady that will clean the sea after us.
