Waste Waning Wednesday #6

Our past week was amazing. The final day of the week (that’s Sunday for us, if you’re wondering) in particular was incredibly fun. There weren’t any specific dinners or events throughout the week, so instead we’re talking about a few things that we’ve used repeatedly over the past month or…

A zero waste lifestyle can be daunting

In particular in the western world, many of us are brought up quite spoiled. Sure, each parent raises their kids differently, but it’s often that I see kids in stores cry until they get the toy or candy bar they so desperately want. Once raised in a world where everything…

Waste Waning Wednesday #5

With Thanksgiving taking place last week, let’s start by sharing what we’re thankful for. We finished the 8 month build of our home on wheels in May, earlier this year. Though we hoped to spend years on end driving it around countless countries, we ended up doing something completely different.…

Eight years ago, I was ready for a change. I wanted to dye my hair, but didn’t want to damage it with chemical dyes. Henna seemed to be the perfect solution, and it’d give my hair a gorgeous red hue. I have used henna every couple of months since then,…

Waste Waning Wednesday #2

What started off feeling as a slow and unsuccessful week ended being incredibly satisfying! But before we share this week’s zero waste diary, we’re sharing an intriguing observation we made on Monday. A man was drinking a bottle of Coca Cola on the platform. When his train arrived, he flung…

The ubiquitous nature of plastic

Plastic and microplastics are truly omnipresent. There doesn’t seem to be a place left on earth where microplastics haven’t been found. Though certainly not unexpected, the National Geographic recently reported that microplastics have been found in human poop. Looking at the habits of our current society, the outcome of the…
