To be totally honest, I haven’t been shopping much. It’s not like I really have anywhere to go! But now that it’s summer, there are a few key pieces I have my eyes on — and all are from sustainable fashion brands. I’ve really been focusing on ‘greening up’ my wardrobe choices, so I recently did a deep dive on Instagram to discover new eco-friendly options. Here are a few you might be into!
It’s taken me quite a while to get this post fully fleshed out and written, but it’s definitely one that I’m asked over and over again! If you’ve ever wondered how to start composting at home, this guide is for you. I tried to keep it as easy and informative as possible, but if you have any outstanding questions, definitely leave a comment on this post. And by no means am I an expert in composting — this post is based off of what I’ve researched, but also what’s worked for us. Climate and location are factors in how you should compost, so be sure to research anything specific to your home, too. We’re in Seattle, so our compost ‘recipe’ reflects that. Let’s dig in (pun very much intended).Continue reading “How To Start Composting At Home”
Thanks to our burgeoning vegetable garden and my obsession with our local farmers market, we always have a lot of fresh produce on hand. If you’re like me or have a CSA sometimes it’s really hard to keep up with making sure everything is eaten before it spoils. I used to google ‘how to store X’ in order to find out the best way. At some point, it got really annoying, especially when Sean asked me how to do it. So I decided to make a list of what goes where (counter, pantry, fridge, etc). If you’ve ever wondered how to store produce so it lasts longer, this is the post for you!Continue reading “How to Store Produce So It Lasts Longer”
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”

With 2 humans, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and currently 6 baby chickens, our house might be small but it can get messy rather quickly. Now, more than ever before, we are focused on cleaning and disinfecting as much as we can — but in a sustainable, earth-friendly way. 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. I love it for a few different reasons, one being the thrill of the hunt. You just never know what you’ll find! Another reason is that it not only helps me save money, but also is a key part of living a more sustainable lifestyle. There are a few things that I typically always buy secondhand, so I wanted to share those with you today. My hope is that if you feel overwhelmed by thrifting, this list will give you a bit more guidance on what to look for.Continue reading “6 Things I Always Buy Secondhand”
