After another big shop at Original Unverpackt (our local zero waste shop) we are almost plastic free. Toothpaste was the last item in our bathroom where we still used a regular store bought product so we were delighted to find the toothpaste tablets below, and I am really pleased with the clean feeling I get after using them. Do any of you have experience with toothpaste tablets, toothpaste powder or homemade toothpaste? If so I would love to hear about it!
In the kitchen there are only two products that I still buy in plastic – rice cakes and tofu – but we will continue to search for options with more sustainable packaging. We found a local tofu maker, we just need to figure out how to get a private bulk order!
With the kitchen and bathroom just about done my next big project is sewing, I am really inspired by thrift store transformations and people like Lydia, April and Angela Lan (who is only 15!) that make their own wardrobes. I am pretty handy at mending, but I have a lot to learn about sewing so it will be an exciting new adventure to embark on.
I’m also currently planning our zero waste wedding which will be on Dec 1st 2017, I am not sure how much interest there might be in reading about that since all weddings are unique and personal anyway, but if anyone wants to find out more drop me a comment and I will write up a post!
