Living a zero-waste lifestyle is honestly impossible. But we can try, right? I love being creative with sustainable and intentional living, so when I heard about Zero Waste Kits I knew I wanted to make my own because I thought it sounded like a fun + creative way to reduce waste.
I’ve heard this comment + have been asked this question a handful of times. It makes me reflect on how I’m portraying my wardrobe + lifestyle, how Slow Fashion portrays what S L O W actually means, and makes me question how I can better talk, equip + teach about living a sustainable, wholehearted + responsible lifestyle. The statement I’m referring to is: “I cannot afford to buy ethical clothes/I can’t afford an ethical lifestyle.” Have you ever said that, thought that, or made a decision based on that lie? I definitely have.
A few weeks ago my husband and I took a trip to Crested Butte, CO (about 5 hours from where we live) for a weekend getaway.
Summers are naturally busy. Longer days + warmer weather are the first ingredients to packed weeknights and weekends and filled schedules. Lately I’ve been craving slower mornings + yet still desiring more adventure on a weekly basis. I’ve been thinking of how to slow down my summer with still getting my fill of people, swimming in the pool, boating on the lake, taking weekend trips, and enjoying a glass of rose on the porch with friends on a random Tuesday night.
