A Visit to Copenhagen Bulk Store LØS

Hello everyone! I visited Copenhagen last week, and I just cannot control myself – I had to go to LØS. It is the Danish bulk store and I am always completely swept away. Furthermore, the trip consisted of wine, delicious food and art – all my favourite things. I brought my own canvas bags and containers from home it was heavy and annoying to bring them along, but in the end it was totally worth it.

I made a video in which I show what products I brought home with me from LØS. I also inserted my first video guide from the place into the video, with all the visual pleasantries that comes with a package free bulk store.

Sustainable Travel Cutlery

Hello everyone! Recently, I got the opportunity to try out a zero waste travel cutlery kit from Make Life Green. From the very beginning, I was quite excited because the travel kit is both adorable looking and extremely practical. In the video below I talk more about the travel kit and you can see how I carry one in my school bag every day. Also, tomorrow I am going to Copenhagen for a few days (and visiting the Danish bulk store LØS again, I am so excited!) and I will be bringing my lovely set of travel cutlery with me. In order to travel more sustainably I will be taking the bus (six hour trip), so it does not seem unrealistic that I will be needing some cutlery for light snacking on the way. Anyway, if you are interested go give Make life Green a look.

My Zero Waste Pantry // Tour

Watch the video here

Hello everyone! I have seen tons of other zero wasters display their pantries, some of which are really impressive, in contrast to this little shelf of mine. However, I am still going to give it a go. You guys have been so amazing and given me tons of tips on how to expand it, one girl told me about bulk oils in my local area. It is pretty extra that I have people tipping about bulk, both to me and to each other, now that I think about it – but I simply how a life style such as zero waste brings people together in this supportive and constructive community. All credit to you guys, you are amazing!

RIVER BLUE Screening w/ Sustain Daily

Hello everybody! Recently I went to the screening, here in Aalborg, of the new fashion-critical documentary River Blue. This is merely a general shout-out to everyone to go and watch this film if you can. It completely blew me away. It talked about the massive consequences our fast-fashion industry and the consumer’s endless cravings for new things have lead to enormous water pollution damage in the countries that produce these items, and furthermore, the global impact of these local disasters. The fashion industry is one of the world’s largest polluters, however it is easy to not contribute to this wrongdoing.  The documentary also mentions several initiatives that attempt to turn this polluting tendency around, for instance by replacing dangerous chemicals with earth friendly alternatives, like utilising wind power to distress jeans, pretty cool.

I attached pictures of myself in 2012 and 2016 in this blogpost, to showcase my second hand journey and how I have now distanced myself from the fast fashion market. It is not easy for everyone to go completely second hand, however you’ve come a long way by simply boycotting world wide polluting brands like Gap, H&M, Zara etc. Instead spend our money supporting  more earth friendly smaller brands that try to make a difference, both in terms of execution, design, materials and ethics.
