Did you know?
.
the sneakers industry is far from being eco-friendly.
.
the production process, the materials used, the transportation and then the disposal of these shoes have a huge impact on the environment.
.
the good news is that it is possible to find great brands that are actually eco-conscious.
.
last week, we visited @cariuma in their pop-up store on venice beach, and shared some of our eco tips with them and their customers.
.
we also learned about their really cool sneakers, which are also eco-friendly! they are handmade from fair trade cotton and 100% natural rubber sole, and produced in ethical factories.
.
in addition, cariuma sneakers come with a recycled and recyclable packaging, and they make sure that the shipping is carbon neutral!
.
so next time you go shopping, remember the impact of the fashion industry on the environment, and when choosing your new stylish sneakers, go for a sustainable brand! easy! 😉

Tip 17: compost your food scraps⁠

when you compost your food scraps, they can be recycled into higher and better use, rather than ending up in landfill. the options are endless - freeze your citrus peels and use them another time for cooking or making a scented spray, or throw them in your garden to give your plants extra nutrients!⁠

❤️why i love food so much…⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
👨🏻‍🍳i love food so much that i was practically born in a restaurant, i guess it was meant to be that i cook. my father cooked & owned a few restaurants while i was growing up (until i was 14 years old). i think i know a thing or two about cooking now.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
⚡️there is something magical about food that it can bring people together from all walks of life, and has the ability to remove each other’s differences. it doesn’t matter where you are from or who/what you believe in - food will always bring a smile to a face and happiness on your tastebuds.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
📖my upcoming debut cookbook ‘more plants less waste’ started almost two years ago when i was hosting dinner parties and supper clubs with friends in nyc and la. so much has happened since that first diner party that it’s now in a form a cookbook for everyone to experience.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
🤤whether you enjoy eating or cooking food for yourself or for others, you’re going to love these recipes. this is cookbook is for everyone. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
💚what’s your favorite dish, maybe it makes an appearance in my cookbook?

Have you ever noticed how bland most sustainable swaps are? how most instagramable assortments are the perfect mix of white, stainless steel and wood?

it’s not a bad thing, it’s just never been how my “zero waste swaps” look. most of them i collected kind of randomly and never with the perfect instagram flat lay in mind - but instead their usability. if i thought something would work well for me long term then i didn’t mind it not fitting into the perfect eco-aesthetic.
since it’s #plasticfreejuly i thought i would share some of my favorites with you, but i’ll go into detail in my youtube video tomorrow 😉
.
in the meantime, do you have any of these same swap? are you happy with all of yours?

What to do with your wraps once they're at the end of their lifecycle⁠
.⁠
when you decide to stop using your wraps is up to you. after about a year they may start to stick less, or maybe the wax is starting to flake a little. you can try to revive them by placing the wrap between two pieces of parchment paper and ironing on low to melt the wax. it may refresh it for a bit, or if not, it's likely done.⁠
.⁠
so what now? we typically recommend one of two options:⁠

1) compost them 🌱⁠
cotton, beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil are all natural so they are completely zero waste at the end of their life cycle⁠

2) use as fire starter 🔥⁠
you can cut your old wrap into strips and twist them. this makes a perfect fire starter for camping or backyard bonfires since it essentially acts like a slow burning wick⁠

We've spoken about eco-friendly kitchen swaps and eco-friendly laundry swaps, so this week... let's talk about eco-friendly bathroom swaps! 🛁⁠
~⁠
our shower and personal care routines are notoriously plastic-intensive. think about it – the big plastic shampoo bottle, the single-use plastic cotton buds and sanitary products – not to mention the plastic bag that lines the bin. these are the biggest culprits that fill our bathroom bin and all this non-biodegradable waste lingers in landfills for years and years while leaching toxins into our soil and waterways.⁠

the good news: there are so many plastic-free alternatives made from materials such as bamboo, coconut and silk. we’ve made a list of a few common bathroom items you can swap out to lighten your plastic load without adding extra effort to your bathroom routine.⁠

head to our website to read the full blog! 👆⁠
