I know so many people are sharing posts about loungewear, pajamas, and athleisure clothing… but for me, it felt like a good opportunity to share ethically made options in that category. Especially because I haven’t seen anyone do it yet! If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that my most recent fashion journey (if you can call it that) involves making more eco-friendly choices. I recently purchased a few sustainable loungewear items and definitely thought I needed to share some of what I found with you! I hope this post inspires you to go green with your shopping, even now.Continue reading “My Sustainable Loungewear Picks”

Today I am so excited because I teamed up with Grove Collaborative, a service I have personally used for years, to share my sustainable cleaning toolkit with you! That includes everything I use, how I use it, and why I love it.Continue reading “My Sustainable Cleaning Toolkit”
The amount of food that is wasted every day is absolutely astronomical and, quickly frankly, out of control. Especially considering how many people either don’t have access to fresh, healthy produce or can’t afford it. In an effort to be more sustainable and a more conscious consumer, we’ve made some changes in our home to reduce food waste. The EPA has a list of tips, but I wanted to share 5 things that have actually worked for me as well.Continue reading “How to Reduce Food Waste”
Thrifting is one of my truly favorite things to do. Either with a good friend or solo, nothing can beat a successful trip to my local secondhand store.

Ever since my No Shopping Challenge, my buying habits have changed. I have never been especially ‘trendy,’ but I enjoy knowing that the trends are. But that doesn’t always mix with wanting to live a more sustainable lifestyle. The constantly updating fashion industry and seasons is hard to keep up with and has quite an impact on our earth. So instead of a trend round up like I used to share, I wanted to round up my ethical style picks today. To me, each item feels like it will ‘live’ longer than one fast fashion cycle — all while being ethically made!Continue reading “My Ethical Style Picks for Spring 2020”
I don’t know if you actually know this, but I am a huge skincare and beauty buff. I’m not nearly as obsessed with makeup, but skincare… ooooooh boy that’s my fave. It all comes down to self-care.

Have you been enjoying the sustainable style posts I’ve been sharing lately?? I hope so! Today, we’re going below the belt and talking underwear and lingerie! I know that this might come off as a weird topic, but underwear is a manufactured piece of clothing like everything else, so I thought it was worth a deep dive. Plus, have you ever stopped and really put thought into where your underwear comes from? I mean, it touches the most intimate parts of the body, so I’d like to know what goes into making it. During my last closet purge, I decided that from then on I would only purchase sustainable and ethical lingerie. Here are some great brands to inspire you to update your underwear drawer!Continue reading “8 Sustainable & Ethical Lingerie Brands to Know About”
