Zero Waste Challenge

Join Me On My Zero Waste Challenge

I’m making one green / zero-waste change
every day for 183 days.

DAY 168 | Mission: Plant-Based

Alright, it’s time to go full-on plant-based! Here’s the mission: a full-day of plant-based eating. Just foods that are from their natural form. No toxins or preservatives. Eating more plant-based is better for the environment. There’s less energy to make processed foods. There’s almost always less packaging with whole foods. And it’s healthier. Tomorrow it … Read moreDAY 168 | Mission: Plant-Based

DAY 166 | Dish Liquid Bar Soap

Going with the soap theme, we arrive at the last one! For now on, instead of using dish liquid that comes in plastic, I will be using bar soap. You can use a bamboo scrub brush with the bar soap and that would work well. I’m going to be turning the bar soaps into liquid. … Read moreDAY 166 | Dish Liquid Bar Soap

DAY 165 | Handsoap Bars

We are heading into a bar soap theme! Today’s change is using bar soap for handwashing only. This is the easiest bar soap you can find in stores and most are packaged in paper. And honestly, they’re cheap too. Winning!!!

DAY 164 | Shampoo Bars

Alrighty. It’s time to get into shampoo bars. I’m afraid of my hair being wrecked, but… I have been using a natural shampoo, so hopefully, it will be alright!! No more shampoo in plastic for me!

DAY 163 | Compost Vacuum Dust

I was researching composting and came across a mega list of compostable items. On there was vacuum dust. It never occurred to me that the dirt picked up from our floors don’t have to be thrown away. Now I don’t have a compost pile, and I’m not planning on having one. But I saw a … Read moreDAY 163 | Compost Vacuum Dust

DAY 161 | No Canned Beverages

My drinking situation keeps getting smaller. I first gave up plastic bottled water then other drinks in plastic and now I’m giving up canned beverages. Canned beverages are GREAT!! And the better option than plastic. They are easier to recycle. But recycling is not the answer to zero waste. So we should strive to recycle … Read moreDAY 161 | No Canned Beverages

DAY 159 | Use Solar When Possible

Ever since I was 16 I always wanted a solar panel. I’ve always thought they were SO DAMN COOL!! And I am so EXCITED!!! Because I’m finally getting one! It’s a solar panel bank that will charge my phone and other devices. I can’t wait to use the sun’s power for my tech 🙂

DAY 158 | Rechargeable Batteries

This is my husband’s most anticipated change! The only thing that has been holding us back from getting rechargeable batteries is that we have a lot of battery usage. And we have many different TYPES of batteries. This means it’s going to be expensive. So I guess the best way to do it is to … Read moreDAY 158 | Rechargeable Batteries

DAY 157 | Bottle Brush

After a while bottle brush turns super gross. Unfortunately, the ones I’ve been using have been plastic. So I will be switching to a bamboo bottle brush.

DAY 156 | Plant a Tree and Other Plants

Planting a tree is a fun experience that is also beneficial to the environment. I will be planting a tree either through a charity network or my family’s yard. I am also gardening and planting berry bushes. More greenery for the yard and more berries for smoothies!!
