Exceptions I make on plastic

I try to give this blog a positive touch. In my weekly diaries, in my other posts, I try to focus on the good things. This way everything is and stays fun. But I like to challenge myself too. And as a privileged person in Netherlands, I feel like I am obligated to do whatever I can to live an eco-positive lifestyle. Now, even though I share a lot of good things, I’d like to share my challenges too. As I said, I like those. Today I’ll share my challenges when it comes to plastic.

The 5R’s of zero waste

I’ve been blogging on here for a while now, I think it’s been about three years. The starting point of this whole green and eco-positive lifestyle has been a zero waste lifestyle. It’s the thing I started blogging about at first, but over the years it has evolved into a whole different lifestyle. But, a zero waste lifestyle is still very important to me, as I thrive to live zero waste and spread this message. Recently I did a lecture about a zero waste lifestyle at my local library, talking about the base of a zero waste lifestyle. While I did that, I realized I had never talked about it on here. So, today I want to tell you more about the philosophy of zero waste, the 5R’s.

Zero waste snack: roasted chickpeas

Snacking, I think it’s something we all do (even if you claim you don’t). I mean, who doesn’t love a sugary or salty (in my case) snack on a good movie night or get together with friends. I think snacks are essential! Finding zero waste snacks can be quite hard, if you’re tied to a ‘normal’ supermarket. But, there are tons of zero waste snacks out there and today might be just right for you. I want to share a recipe for roasted chickpeas! Lees “Zero waste snack: roasted chickpeas” verder
