Hello everybody! When it comes to a subject such as TP, there are several ways to avoid making too much trash. Personally, I am a fan of plastic free alternatives, but of course going all the way and using washable cloths is also an option – just not for me. Instead I contacted a local cleaning agency which then provided me with a huge package-free roll of toilet paper, pretty amazing. The ones I found was sold individually and with no sort of packaging. Walk around in your area or contact local businesses to find alternative solutions and avoid the unnecessary plastic!
Hello everyone! A few days ago I filmed a new video, taking you guys with me while I go zero waste shopping! I hope you will like the video! I filmed the video three days ago and the veggies are still going strong. I have been challenging myself to only come up with recipes from one batch of groceries and so far it is going really well. This is my day four without meat, although I have been eating dairy products, but meat-wise I have not been having a problem skipping it several days in a row. And while I am here, I really have to explain my inactivity here on the blog. My laptop crashed, so my time on a computer has been sparse. However, I have been posting on Instagram and Facebook, so stay tuned on my social media platforms until my laptop situation improves. Until next time, take care!
Hello everybody! A massive part of living zero waste is minding all kinds of waste, not only plastic. Food waste is wasted energy and nurture and effort. By letting stuff go bad in the fridge, all the effort that was put into growing or making the food is suddenly all for nothing. Therefore, I am giving you guys 4 steps to minding food waste and avoiding good ingredients ending up in the trash. 1// Dedicate a day or two in the week for left over dishes! I have a couple of dishes that are perfect for left overs, like grilled sandwiches, tortilla filling, soups, salats and so on. We have those dishes every week to get rid of whatever may be left in the fridge! 2// Make, bake and cook! Making things from scratch may seem obvious and stupid to some. But by baking your own bread or mixing your own salsa, you achieve a higher level of respect for the food and may be less likely to through it away. 3// Know your trash. Go and take a look in your trashcan, what kinds of foods is most likely to go bad before you get to it? For me it was bananas, so I started freezing them and using them for nice cream and banana bread! 4// Reuse the veggies! Before composting (which is an awesome way to use food scraps btw) I store stuff like onion coats, carrot peels etc in a jar in the freezer and I use it to make soup broth, tastes amazing!

Hello everyone! Right now, I am enjoying myself on a tiny vacation, which was utterly needed after the move. So today, I am simply here to remind you of my latest video, in case you have not yet seen it. I made a festive lookbook consisting of three outfits. The main piece in every outfit, that is the dresses and the jumpsuit are all vintage items from MorfarsMoustache, a danish vintage store. The other items are secondhand – as always! The aspect of fashion can easily be combined with zero waste. I thrift and I love it. By going to secondhand stores for clothing, instead of buying everything from new, you are using something that is already in the waste stream. Reuse what is already there! I hope you enjoy the video, take care!
