If you, like me, are doing your best to live a more natural, greener life, producing as little waste as possible then you need to start following these blogs.
These have become my favourites:
Wellness Mama; simpler answers for healthier families. – I follow her blog for her awesome recipes on natural beauty products. Also posts on natural home, fitness, remedies, motherhood, kitchen sink and recipes.
Zero Waste Chef; no packaging, no processed, no waste. – delicious, frugal recipes for healthy eating.
Zero Waste Home; refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot (only in that order). – Bea Johnson and her family have taken Zero Waste living to awe inspiring heights. Great tips and inspiration.
Trash is for Tossers; say no to trash. – Lauren Singer is inspiring people to live a Zero Waste life. Useful tips and inspiration on her site.
I would love to find more great blogs about these topics; greener living, zero waste, natural living, living plastic free in South Africa and around the world.
I am also finding that there are lots of great products out there, but always in US, UK or Aus. Maybe I am just searching in the wrong places. Please do share any great places to shop, or suppliers that you know of.
Just some of the cool products I have discovered so far:
EcoJarz – turns a jar into a drinking cup
Onya weigh Bags – instead of plastic produce bags
Credo cotton produce bags – replaces plastic produce bags
Cheeky Wipes – replaces wet wipes, nappy wipes and san pads
If you live in the U.S or are happy to pay postage, then Life without Plastic has absolutely amazing stuff! The best online site I have found in South Africa is Faithful to Nature – unbelievable service and great products.
Happy Zero Waste living people – it is SO much easier than you might think.
