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! 

Here’s before:

  

And here’s after:

  

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!

Goals for 2015

Hey guys! So it’s that time of year when everyone sets goals for themselves to accomplish in the upcoming year. This year, instead of just listing goals, I also made steps to help me achieve these goals. Here they are:

1. Read some of the Bible every day

2. Get all A’s this semester

3. Sign up for yoga teacher training

4. Begin transition into plastic-free/zero waste lifestyle

5. Put more effort in blog/YouTube (I’m thinking about making YouTube videos! If I did, what kinds of videos would you like to see?)

6. Write more

So those are some of the things I want to do this year. I’m trying to stay really focused and driven in my goals, but also working on letting go and being content throughout life in general. Does that make any sense?

I want to know what your goals are for this year, let me know!
