MY 2018 SUSTAINABILITY GOALS

When I read this post about micro actions we can take to reduce rubbish in the New Year by Lindsay of Treading My Own Path, it really got me thinking about all the small steps we’ve taken in our house towards a lower carbon footprint and lower waste output.

ZERO WASTE UPDATE: HANKIES, ECO-FRIENDLY PERIODS AND MORE

Since starting up Simple Life Experiment, I’ve been looking forward to sharing some of the ways we are working towards zero waste in our home. It’s a very ambitious goal, and the fact that we use a bin and we still take it out each week is evidence of just how ambitious it is, but we…… Continue reading ZERO WASTE UPDATE: HANKIES, ECO-FRIENDLY PERIODS AND MORE
