It’s time for a new documentary. And this documentary is so beautiful to me, since it’s about something I’m really passionate about: food. More specifically: it’s about local food. Knowing where your food comes from, who has put so much effort into growing it and what’s the story behind the food. The following documentary has all that: Sustainable.

Why zero waste isn’t always Instagram-pretty

Today I’d like to clarify something. Search online for zero waste lifestyle and you see pictures of mostly reusables. Pretty reusables, a closet full of perfectly matching jars, an amazing looking reusable cup or a beautiful set of lunchboxes. I love those pictures, but today I want to tell you that this isn’t always reality. Continue reading “Why zero waste isn’t always Instagram-pretty”

Why paper, glass and cans are more sustainable than plastic

Now that I think about it, it feel kind of strange that I have not dedicated a full blogpost to this subject. You have probably heard me say it a lot, in my weekly diaries and other posts: I prefer glass, cans and paper over plastic. Always. But why? And is that a fair choice to make?

I’ve decided to get my drivers license! Why?

Cars are not sustainable, they pollute the air by the carbon dioxide they release. Especially with all the cars we have right now on this planet, we have a problem. For a long while, I had chosen not to be a part of that problem. This had multiple reasons, which I’ll come to later. However, I’ve made up my mind after a long time. I am getting my drivers license.
