Thirty paper valentines with plastic-wrapped candy for your child’s classroom. Mass produced stuffies that come apart at the seams a month later. Flowers that wilt well before your love does.

5 Things to carry when you step out of your home that prevent you from making more trash.  Despite many years of living low waste, I failed countless times when it comes to consuming outside the home.

Progress Over Perfection

The end of another year, in fact the end of another decade. It always feels massively significant and I always put pressure on myself to get the new year off to a flawless start, which is kind of silly considering that I am in fact the same person from 11:59pm on December 31st to 12:00am on January 1st.   On my quest to live a more sustainable life, I try to take a holistic approach.
