This week is actually 4th of July week. 4th of July. Wasn’t it March just last week?????
Here are my groceries for this week. My co-op has reopened for shoppers (yeah!), though allowing reusable bags for produce is questionable. I may be throwing everything in my cart willy-nilly next week if they don’t allow them!
Since moving toward a low-waste lifestyle, I have been trying to shop local and shop small. Lush, unfortunately, does not fit that bill but they are one of the first companies that I fell in love with when I was switching to all-natural products several years back. Throughout the years, they have made continuous strides to lessen the waste that they offer including taking back their packaging for reuse and offering “naked” products like shampoos, conditioners, solid moisturizers and soaps. The real reason I’m featuring them, though, is that they have brick and mortar stores with an incredibly helpful staff. I think when you are starting on a low waste journey, or are looking for products with cleaner ingredients, it can be really intimidating. Instead of scrolling through pages on line, you can talk to real people about what your looking for and get recommendations.
It’s been over a month since I posted anything and since then so much has been going on in the world. Last week was particularly heavy, but necessary, with the protests and conversations that George Floyd’s death sparked. I took some time away from posting and sponged up as much of the information as I could. I think the most interesting thing I watched was 13th on Netflix. I highly recommend it.
Happy Wednesday, everyone! This post was supposed to go live on Monday but my blog and I are having a bit of a fight. I accidentally changed the layout on Monday when I went to post this and haven’t been able to figure out how to change it back. My bad! Hopefully, it will be fixed by next week. Until then, bear with me.
Happy Earth Day, everyone! I couldn’t let this holiday go by without a post of some sort. If you are following my on IG today, I’m sort of doing a walk through of my day and some of the eco-friendly products that I use. I’ll try and save those stories to a Highlight if you want to review them later.
Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a nice Easter or Passover, despite having to stay indoors and social distance. It was sad not getting together with my big family but we did make an Easter dinner, we had a zoom meet up with the family and, since it was a special occasion, we even made a point of putting on real clothes. 🙂
Another Monday, another week of social distancing. How is everyone doing? I hope everyone is still doing well, staying healthy and social distancing. If staying indoors is starting to get to you, well, I have a recipe for a giant chocolate chip cookie pie with your name on it below.
Hello, everyone! Most of us are on week 2-ish of being isolated. I hope everyone is still healthy and sane.
Today, I wanted to start something I have been mulling over since before I launched Trees & Honeybees- Small Business Spotlight. I think helping to support small businesses is so important. I truly believe we vote with our dollars and if we continue to support small businesses, especially ones that are making efforts to promote sustainability and remain eco-friendly, people will take notice.
