Blog of the Week
Going Zero Waste
Kathryn lives in the Bay Area and attempts a zero waste lifestyle. She has been documenting her efforts for a few years and has some great tips on how to go about DIY cleaning, beauty, cooking and more! These new practices can take time to fully implement and each person's journey will look a little different. However, she has a great blog post to get you started. Kathryn is getting married next month and recently wrote about her efforts to have a zero waste wedding- check it out here.
Product of the Week
"Every year, nearly five billion plastic toothbrushes end up in our oceans and landfills." Mable toothbrushes are made of bamboo, BPA-free nylon bristles and non-toxic paint. The company even has a comprehensive video showing customers how to safely recycle their toothbrush after 3 or 4 months of use. Ditch the plastic and get yourself a Mable Brush!
Another fun event happening in Los Angeles this weekend is Beyond the Label: Upcycling Lab at UCLA. The event is on Thursday, April 20th, from 10am-3pm and absolutely FREE. Go learn how to turn "trash" into treasure tomorrow!
