Is there anyone else in the zero waste/environmental/health world that’s also in college?  I would love to exchange ideas on how to make this all work while going to school!



For the past three or four years I’ve convinced my family to turn off the lights for Earth Hour and tonight’s the night! Tonight at 8:30 wherever you are, you have the power to be something bigger and raise awareness for climate change. Use the hashtags #earthhour and #yourpower to show everyone how you’re making a difference! 

Later I’m going to make a post of other ways you can make a positive environmental change! 

Are you celebrating Earth Hour tonight? Let me know! 

Zero Waste

I’ve been looking and researching the idea of producing zero waste for a bit now and I’m loving the idea. I think for the new year I’m going to try it. I’m not going all out all at once. A lifestyle change takes time. But how awesome would it be to eventually be able to keep all my trash in a mason jar?!
This morning I brought up the idea of folding up our used wrapping paper and using it again next year to my parents. My dad said, “well that’s not what normal people do”. I don’t think too much of anything I value or come up with could be considered “normal”. I mean think about it, on Christmas every household that celebrates it will have some amount of wrapping paper to just throw away. And that’s that’s normal.
Are any of you zero waste or heard anything about it? Anyone have any tips? Help me out?
