I´m here to show you today how you can make smarter choices during your normal workday. And just for fun, I wanna show you that through a story about a woman called Mathilda.

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.
You know the feeling when a motivation wave hits you and you are convinced that from this moment on you will exercise every day, but somehow 4 days later your motivation is not that strong anymore and all the excuses are getting stronger? But what if you twist it around and make it fun.
Welcome back and welcome to 2018. I think a post about fighting climate change is a good way to start a new year of my posts. Some researchers suggest that we have …
Giving gifts should be fun and thoughtful and environmentally friendly gesture of love and friendship. But somehow it turned into heavy consumerism, pollution and stress. Here is how you can make some gifts at home and keep your holidays sustainable and creative.
I really enjoy checking Instagram posts and stories of people´s work, traveling, news, info, experiences or just everyday life. Scrolling through nice outdoor adventure photos, travel with people all over the globe through their stories. And although a lot of Instagram is fake these days, we can try our best to keep it as honest and raw as possible. Here is my November in stories.
As the percentage of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere rises, our planet heats up. Glaciers melt. Seasons blend together as winters become warmer. What are we-snowboarders doing about it and are we making it worse?
Synthetic materials are poisoning our environment. When we think about this problem, images of plastic bottles and plastic bags come to mind, but synthetic textiles are a big part of the problem, too. The Guppyfriend washing bag filters out the tiniest microfibers released from textiles during washing.
Ladies, there are options, green options available for us now. From menstrual cups, reusable pads, period panties, sea sponge tampons. If you just made a Naaaah. face, or even Eeeww! I don´t blame you, I was not convinced the first time I heard about them either. But hopefully, you will continue reading and give this or some other alternative a try.
I strive to have a simple life. I don´t like chaos, clutter, having a lot of things. I like my living space and space in my head to be clutter free, organized and happy. It´s not always easy, but it´s always possible. I want to share with you some of the basics steps to more simple living.

About 70-80% of tea bags are made from compostable paper while the remaining 20-30% contains heat-resistant polypropylene. This is to prevent the breaking of the bag, but it does mean that small pieces of plastic mesh are left behind in the soil when you compost the bags.

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.
