Who Gives a Crap Toilet Paper

Finding toilet paper that ISN’T wrapped in non-recyclable plastic? So, so easy. Get comfy because we are going to talk way more about toilet paper then I’m sure you ever thought you would!

Lush Company Review

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.

Reusable Bottles

One of the first changes that everyone talks about when going zero-waste is to switch to a reusable water bottle and I whole heartily agree.

Often, they are too small to go through recycling machines, if they are recycled at all. About 6 billion pounds of plastic bottles get thrown away every year, and only 30% get recycled. YIKES!
