Before we get into recycling, I’d first like to remind you about those two things that are even better than recycling! YES. REDUCE AND REUSE. Always do those two things first. Now that that is out of the way… Obviously, there’s always going to be stuff to recycle. And recycling is much better than having something go to the landfill. However, there is also something called wishful recycling… where you desperately don’t want to put something in the trash so you figure, hey, this item COULD be recyclable (or this is similar to other things I recycle)… let’s just do that. Don’t do this. It can contaminate items that can…

Link Round Up #110
The pandemic void only my girlfriends can fill. 20 one minute habits for a clutter-free home. The end of the shelfie. K-drama + K-beauty pairings. Racism against the AAPI community is a beauty industry problem. I recommend regular celebrations.
Link Round Up #109 + Garden Update
It’s been a hell of a week down here in Texas… we were very lucky with our power (unlike my parents 2 miles away… thankfully, they were able to make it over here safely and spend a few days in the warmth). If you’d like to help the many people in need… check out the following resources. View this post on Instagram A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) I’m not looking forward to seeing what the community garden looks like next week after all this snow melts… we’re pretty nervous about all the onions that have been planted… while cold hardy, I definitely don’t think they are meant to…
Eco-Friendly Finds: Target Edition
In the past, it’s definitely felt like being eco-friendly also meant paying a lot of money (or having to get things shipped from far off zero waste stores) to get things like bar shampoos, refillable deodorant, cleaning supplies, etc. At times, it has seemed like being eco-friendly just wasn’t for the normal person who buys most of their necessities at the local grocery store/Walmart/Target/etc. (Big Target fan here!) BUT — good news ahead. It seems like a lot of the big box stores are now carrying eco-friendly products (because, surprise, there’s a demand for it!). Sure, is some of it imperfect? Yeah. But is it still a big step up.…

Carrot harvest time! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Less is Meera (@lessismeera) Mental tools to survive the winter. A list of favorite Etsy shops. Places to donate unwanted items. How to get a hobby. They say this isn’t America.
Zero Waste + Eco-Friendly New Year?s Resolutions (for 2021)
First off, I’m using the word ‘resolutions’ very loosely here… if 2020 taught us anything… it’s that plans/goals/resolutions can very, very easily go down the drain. So. Be kind to yourself. For me, these are aspirations… goals… a few things I hope to try out this year. There’s a new refill store in Dallas! Yay! It seems they have a booth at the Dallas Farmer’s Market every Saturday + Sunday for a few toiletry + home essentials. I’m so excited to try them out once I run out of some current stuff. I definitely want to try out their liquid dish soap, laundry detergent, and body cream! Keep an eye…
