Going green is on a lot of people’s minds these days. Plastic-free, waste-free, sustainability, the 5 R’s (refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle).
I’m a lot more mindful about the way I treat my waste and my plastic, but it’s really hard to live a green lifestyle!
It’s extremely helpful and motivational to see that there are so many resources out there for learning about going green. I’m thankful to these people for giving me ideas and inspiration for doing my best, and giving me permission to screw up.
Here are some resources for going green.
Pretty self-explanatory title, right? Meg’s page shows her journey to living completely waste free. She’s come up with all sorts of ideas for repurposing items in order to replace plastic. And she’s starting to host Q+A meetups in Saskatoon if you’re a local. Check out her Facebook page here and her Instagram here.
On her blog, Whitney posts about sustainable living. Some topics she covers include homemade recipes for simple household cleaning and eco-friendly travel tips. You can check out her blog here.
“Easy Switches You Can Make to Help Save the Planet”
This post on From Bee with Love is a great beginner’s guide to making some simple switches like trading your old shampoo bottle for bar shampoo, or your plastic toothbrush for a bamboo one. They’re simple ideas, but they’re a great place to start, whether you’re new to the green living game, or you’ve been trying for a while and don’t know what to do next. Explore the blog further and you’ll get some ideas for making your periods a little more environmentally friendly, too! Check out the post here.
Raw Fashion Blog
Another resource coming at you from YXE! Tiara talks a lot about sustainable fashion – shopping vintage, choosing environmentally friendly fabrics, and avoiding the fast-fashion game. You’ll also find posts about cleaning up your facial care, your beauty routine, and more! Check out the blog here.
I’m hoping to be able to grow this list over time. There is so much to learn about going green!
