I’ve been waiting forever for the internet to be installed in my apartment, but they only could do it like two weeks after we moved in :(
But now I have internet! I don’t always have to blog from work anymore!
Good morning lovelies!
So since I’ve started going on this path where I try to live as green as possible, I thought my first actual post that I make on here is what changes I already made (since this has always been an idea, but I’ve never actually done it until recently)
It was always pretty difficult to go green when I was younger, because I basically had to use whatever my parents would buy for me. But since I have my own job, and I’m living on my own for most of the time now, I can work towards that goal!
My first major change that I made was on (warning: we’re going to talk about periods and menstrual cycles really quick, but it won’t be long right now, I promise!) is reusable menstrual products. Now, I used to think the idea of reusable pads was one of the weirdest and nastiest things. If I knew about menstrual cups back then, I would have been so against it. But now that I’ve actually tried it, it’s literally one of the best switches I ever made. I’ll save my rant for other posts, because I’m going to be putting reviews on here on all the different products that I’ve tried, and will be trying. (I’ve graciously been given a ton of different samples to review and I will be putting up my thoughts here!)
The second change I’ve started to make, but haven’t gotten much use out of is reusable alternative to paper products. I’ve made my own “un-paper” towels and dish cloths, etc. and it’s so much more convenient! You never run out, and once you have the first ones, you really don’t need to buy more for a long time. Also, crocheted swifter pads are pretty much the best.
Cruelty free/ethical clothing and beauty products: even though it’s not totally because you want to be “green”, it’s nice to buy from companies who don’t cause harm to others, or force people to work in sub-par environments. But, there are a lot that are made with organic materials!
And those are the main big changes I’ve made thus far. Soon, I will be able to give you more in depth info on everything! I just moved into a new apartment and have no internet until Sunday :(
But once I get it, be prepared!
I created this blog in order to give myself motivation to be healthier in all aspects.
Recently, I’ve decided to take the “healthier in all aspects” to a whole new, green level. I’m going eco-friendly!
A bunch of my friends have been asking me questions about my process, what I’m changing, etc etc etc. So I’m just going to keep posting all of my new findings and changes here!
So far it’s actually a lot easier than expected, and it’s even pretty fun. Like, DIY projects have become an even bigger part of my life, and that’s saying something. I’m already a huge seamstress/knitter/crocheter (I’m convinced that I’m actually a 90 year old woman stuck in a 20 year old’s body).
And ethical shopping itself is actually really fun and simple too! There are more and more brands of clothing and makeup that are made with organic materials, and made all ethical.
So instead of just being a fitness/motivation blog (which is still going to be a thing), I’m going to start putting up my own experiences and reviews on all these new things that I’m going to be trying! (and I’ll post about all my really cool- at least I think they’re cool- reusable crafts that I’ve been making! Woo!)
I look forward to starting this new adventure with all of you! <3
