Hello everyone! As many other beautiful bloggers, I’ve decided to run through my goals for 2018, although these goals have nothing to do with the regular resolution clichés, these are my zero waste goals for 2018. Why am I making this post? Because we can always improve, maybe that seems demotivating, but there is always room to grow and learn and evolve, and I think that is a really important thing to remember.
Plant based food // In 2017 I took a big step and overcame something I never thought I could. I quit meat and I am insanely proud of myself. However, with my own pad on the back I have to continue further, I am not nearly done; during 2018 I would like to get even more into plant based foods. I’ve been so good at replacing dairy in my everyday diet as well, but I want to be even better. I would also like to visit more vegan restaurants in the future.
Materials of my clothes // One of my ultimate goals is rely more on natural materials in favour of synthetic ones. I have some clothes that are very dear to me, made synthetically and I have no intention of throwing them away. However, things that is thrown in the wash in a regular basis does retain microplastics if they are made synthetically, I would like to avoid that in the future.
More about materials // While we are on the subject; I would like to work towards organic fabrics in terms of bed spreads, towels and so on. I still use whatever I bought when I moved out from home, and it is probably not the most eco-friendly material. Damn these high prices! This is definitely something worth saving up for.
Eco friendly travels // I need to travel more, I can feel it in my bones. Next time I travel, I want to put my money somewhere useful, support local initiatives and arrangements that are more eco friendly, spreading good vibes and tasting amazing plant based as well. I have an idea about Barcelona, so if you know any eco hotels, restaurants etc, let me know!
Keep doing what I am doing, but better // I want to continue this healthy and positive path of zero waste. Remembering my reuseable glass, having my spork in my bag, using stainless steel straws, shopping at my bulk stores and plastic free farmer’s market and of course, wearing my canvas bag and my second hand outfits. Remembering that this planet’s resources are precious and few and that we need to make an effort to take care of them. Remembering that the world is not there for my convenience and pleasure and I need to earn my place here. I want to hold on to this mindset and never let it go, because I have honestly never been so happy and motivated as I am right now.
