Hello everybody! Since this is a pretty large part of any lifestyle, I thought I would share my personal experiences about zero waste and how much it costs. Some have referred to zero waste as something only a minority of people can practise because it is too expensive. I beg to differ, of course some aspects seem pricey, but do what you can. Even the smallest changes are huge.
Hello everybody! It has been a while since I last talked about my wedding plans, and I want to document the entire process so here goes. There is about 8 months until we are getting married, so still quite a while, but if there is one thing I have learned from my previous zero waste parties, it is be freaking prepared!
I think that all too often we clutter our most important moments in disposable uselessness. Instead of really focusing on what it is all about, we are too easily distracted with all kinds of stuff, things that will maybe seem fun for 5 minutes and then forgotten, or things that will make us seem more wealthy – plastic disguised as silver and gold. With the Zero Waste lifestyle, I am trying to take a step back from all of these single-use products and our wedding will be no exception.
There are so many things one can do to lessen the impact of trash and pollution, especially when it comes to a large celebration like this. Of course, you will always have to compromise, because not everyone’s situation is the same, but still, within the frame you live and the opportunities which you have, there is so much to done. Take a look it this guide I found on Pinterest:
Hello everybody! With the shipment of the amazing iron cast skillet, I also received some extra cotton cloths for my kitchen. They are designed as kettle holders, but honestly, I use them for everything. They look a lot like the homemade dish cloths my mum got me, I posted a picture down below for reference, and they are just as practical. I have little, verging on absolutely no, sewing skills, so having a plan B when it comes to alternatives like this is quite practical.
Hello everybody! I am simply here to share my latest video! I made the video in cooperation with Almino minimalism, which is an app where you can share minimalistic ideas and aesthetics, pretty cool I think. Anyway I hope you enjoy the video, and remember if you have any additional tips, post them down below and share your tips on how to avoid waste and clutter!
Hello everybody! Recently, I finally got a cast iron skillet. I was always told that you need to invest in quality over quantity, but as university student that is easier said than done. I was so lucky to receive one. Cast iron is in true spirit of the zero waste movement, and in alignment of ‘buy it once’. I talk way more about this in my latest video – watch it here. This particular skillet is from EcoKitch.dk – a sustainable Danish webshop. They even sent me the most sustainable stationary I have ever seen, check it out on my Instagram! Now to the recipe, this is a mixture that I personally favour, and I hope you will too.
You will need: Chickpeas, onion, garlic, carrot, flour, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, chive and water
How to: Put chickpeas, onion, garlic and carrots in a blender. I like to chop them you in small pieces for the process to go smoother. Add water if needed. When it is all one lovely dough, add herbs and spices. Mix it with flour in a bowl until the texture resembles that of bread dough. Then either deep fry them or fry them on a pan, you decide depending on what you like, although I think the texture is better then deep fried. Serve with veggies and a dip and you are good to go!
