    How to organize your fridge. Outgrowing the life you thought you wanted. Joy takes practice. The Olympics and the environment. Whattt…. you’re surprised women are putting off motherhood? Shocking. The worst money spent.

  • Plastic Free July Tips for 2021

    It’s that time again — Plastic Free July! While every day should involve doing your best to save our planet, Plastic Free July is a great time to explore even more ways to reduce plastic waste. At this point, reusable bags/straws/water bottles are becoming a bit more mainstream… so let’s talk about some other ways to challenge yourself to go plastic free. Hair/body care products: This month, make it a goal to replace at least one of your plastic shampoo/conditioner/body wash bottles with a package free, bar soap option. (I’d say the easiest one to replace is body wash as there are so many bar soap options from both small,…

  • Wishful Recycling

    Before we get into recycling, I’d first like to remind you about those two things that are even better than recycling! YES. REDUCE AND REUSE. Always do those two things first. Now that that is out of the way… Obviously, there’s always going to be stuff to recycle. And recycling is much better than having something go to the landfill. However, there is also something called wishful recycling… where you desperately don’t want to put something in the trash so you figure, hey, this item COULD be recyclable (or this is similar to other things I recycle)… let’s just do that. Don’t do this. It can contaminate items that can…

  • Link Round Up #109 + Garden Update

    It’s been a hell of a week down here in Texas… we were very lucky with our power (unlike my parents 2 miles away… thankfully, they were able to make it over here safely and spend a few days in the warmth). If you’d like to help the many people in need… check out the following resources. View this post on Instagram A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) I’m not looking forward to seeing what the community garden looks like next week after all this snow melts… we’re pretty nervous about all the onions that have been planted… while cold hardy, I definitely don’t think they are meant to…

  • Eco-Friendly Finds: Target Edition

    In the past, it’s definitely felt like being eco-friendly also meant paying a lot of money (or having to get things shipped from far off zero waste stores) to get things like bar shampoos, refillable deodorant, cleaning supplies, etc. At times, it has seemed like being eco-friendly just wasn’t for the normal person who buys most of their necessities at the local grocery store/Walmart/Target/etc. (Big Target fan here!) BUT — good news ahead. It seems like a lot of the big box stores are now carrying eco-friendly products (because, surprise, there’s a demand for it!). Sure, is some of it imperfect? Yeah. But is it still a big step up.…
