Baby Steps

I’ve been so inspired and motivated in the zero waste world lately from downsizing my things so asking a store employee if I can use glass jars for their bulk bins. Today in my city, I went to an awesome event called EarthFest. EarthFest is a festival type deal with vendors and workshops on things like fermentation, reiki, solar power, beekeeping, and zero waste! I unfortunately missed the zero waste workshop, but I love everything about the event and atmosphere. 

But after EarthFest I stopped by Kroger and their glass jars were on sale! So I got some 4 oz jars to switch my beauty-ish products (toothpaste, deodorant, face scrub, and face powder-all homemade) from plastic containers to the jars!

It’s a slow process, and my family right now only has about three trash bags a month (not including recycling and compost), but I would love to get that down to even less! 

Is there anything like EarthFest in your area? Did you do anything awesome on this lovely Saturday? Let me know!
