We talk a lot about zero waste essentials, must haves and goto products. i’m guilty of this. but i feel like the market is flooded with reusables made of sustainable materials and more new things come out every day. so i️ just want to stop for a second and just remind people out there(and myself) that you can live a zero waste lifestyle without mason jars and bamboo utensils. you don’t have to collect your trash. you don’t need a 100% natural wardrobe
my new blog post on not t****y (link in bio) lists “zero waste products you can live without”. i️ think it is important to stress that your plastic free journey doesn’t have to start with what to buy in order to reduce waste in your day to day life. although the items i list are 100% useful, they’re not essential. it is just a friendly reminder to focus your energy on what is important, reducing waste
for me, buying new things gives me joy... and so does bringing my own cup to the coffee shop and refusing a straw. i’m making a choice. what i️ will allow to make me happy? i choose, keeping my money 🙃
Hey #austin area folks, i’ve got this beautiful, custom, refinished bar cart / liquor cabinet available for sale! as you can see from the last photos, it is an antique tool cabinet that i stripped down and re-finished and repurposed, using @generalfinishes dark chocolate.
dm if interested and spread the word!
It's been a while since i made any peter rabbit items, so here is a cute lamp shade made from vintage sheet and lace! if you know my shop, then you know that i love to repurpose. there is so much charm and beauty in vintage fabrics and styles! shade available in my shop.
Emptied boxes and containers from a #konmari session. marie kondo recommends putting nice containers aside as you go through the process, because you might be able to repurpose them when you think about storage at the end of the process. you don’t need to keep this many, or any that are worn or that are too big to repurpose, but it can be fun to see how many containers you’ve managed to empty out!
