Some of the low waste swaps I've made in the bathroom with my care and hygiene products. - Bamboo toothbrush - Toothpaste tabs - Concentrated mouthwash - you use a few drops in water - Menstrual cup - mine is from OrganiCup (you can use code MYGREENCLOSET on their website for free shipping) - Washable menstrual pads - have a couple thin liners made from hemp and organic cotton - Glass nail file - mine is from Logona - Peel-off nail polish - I like using Little Ondine* - Cream Deodorant - my DIY recipe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzQurpBAtBY - Face/body oils - I've liked using jojoba, argan, and sweet almond on my face and I use sweet almond as a body moisturizer (helpful video about choosing face oils for your skin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1TZwTDlzw4&t) - Washable cotton/makeup remover pads - I crocheted my own from organic cotton yarn - Shampoo bar - Bar soap - Safety razor Thanks for watching!

SUSTAINABLE WARDROBE BASICS | 4 Things to do for a Greener Closet
 
05:07
The 4 areas I consider to be the foundation of an eco-friendly wardrobe. They are: Wear - make sure you'll actually wear and get a lots of use from new clothes, commit to at least 30 wears! I get a lot of wear from my clothes by keeping it minimal with a capsule wardrobe. Check out my capsule wardrobes here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7Qq0pGGOYY&list=PLab1HN1VQq5P_8eR2kWcw0KVCr-BHreSc Quality - Buy clothes that will last, and definitely avoid anything that looks likely to fall apart or wear out after a few washes. How to identify good quality clothes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjWiUI7MdbQ&t Care - care for your clothes so they last and have a lower impact. How to properly care for your clothes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt9yB7Xrcnc&t Next Life - what happens to your clothes when they can't be worn anymore or you're done with them?

Start your Ethical Wardrobe Without Spending a Cent
 
03:14
You can begin your conscious closet journey right now, you don't have to buy anything! The sustainable and #ethicalfashion movement talks a lot about shopping - what to buy and where to find better products, but choosing NOT to buy something is equally, if not more important. We need to slow down the insane rate we're consuming and disposing of clothes. Did you know the average person in the US throws away (yes, straight to the landfill) about 70 pounds of textiles every year??

What are Good Quality Clothes?
 
06:30
Buying high quality clothing is important, especially if you have a capsule wardrobe or are trying to build a more sustainable wardrobe. These are some tips and signs to help you find good quality and well made garments. Videos mentioned Common Fabrics Pros & Cons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QmTnHNb8ro Clothing Care: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt9yB7Xrcnc More info: how to assess the quality of garments: a beginner’s guide {part i} http://into-mind.com/2014/05/01/how-to-assess-the-quality-of-garments-a-beginners-guide-part-i/ **Please note that these signs and tips are generalizations. One or two things does not necessarily mean that the garment is good quality. Also even if the garment is well made with high quality finishings it could still possibly be made from a poor quality fabric, which is why assessing the fabric is most important. The best thing to do is feel the clothes, look at the inside and trust your instincts! ;) Please share any other tips you have!

5 Eco Lifestyle Essentials ♻️
 
03:13
5 products which help reduce your daily waste and environmental impact! Shopping bags - you can often find them given away for free, but I'd also recommend getting a heavy-duty one for grocery shopping. Water bottle - way too much plastic waste comes from bottled water, save money and plastic by bringing your own bottle. My glass one is from Soul Bottles https://www.soulbottles.de/en * Reusable coffee cup - if you ever get coffee or tea to-go you should bring your own mug! Mine is a bamboo Ecoffee cup from Pukka Herbs https://shop.pukkaherbs.com/gifts/pukka-cups.html * but if you're looking for an insulated cup, a lot of people seem to like Keep Cup https://eu.keepcup.com Jars - use these to buy bulk food, bring lunches or snacks in, as take-away conatiners, or to replace any other plastic containers. You can buy jars but it's easiest and cheapest to use the ones you get at grocery stores. Cloth towels/napkins/cleaning rags - save paper towels, napkins and synthetic cleaning cloths. It's also cheaper than buying disposable products and you can even re-purpose worn out garments into cleaning rags. What else do you think is a eco-friendly must-have? Thanks for watching!

Is it Ethical to buy Fast Fashion Secondhand?
 
05:05
Come for a walk with me! In this video I chat about why I think it's okay to buy fast fashion brands second hand and a few things to think about when doing so. As I've mentioned in other videos shopping secondhand is one of the most sustainable and ethical ways to buy clothes - you are not using any new resources or supporting unethical manufacturing, and you're reducing waste. It's also a very affordable way to reduce your impact and build a conscious wardrobe. I would love to hear your thoughts on this! My secondhand and thrift shopping tips: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJHd81IHHGg Why I buy new and used clothing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gHzP1hvu0o Also I apologize about the quality and audio!

Why Sustainable Products Are Made From Bamboo
 
03:00
This video is kindly sponsored by One Happy Leaf, check out their bamboo jewellery! https://www.onehappyleaf.com/ Bamboo is a very eco friendly material because it grows so quickly, requires little water, no pesticides/herbicides/fungicides, and actually produces more oxygen than the same area of trees. It's also very versatile which makes it a good choice for a lot of products.

Fall 2015 Capsule Wardrobe | Project 333
 
02:23
A quick video of the items in my fall 2015 capsule wardrobe. Fall capsule combinations/lookbook https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mt5K__SzvaI As mentioned in my Year of Project 333 video, for fall and winter I'm going to have a few more than 33 items. This capsule currently has 32 pieces and I'll be adding in another pair of shoes, probably another scarf, and possibly a belt if I find I need one. As usual I don't include jewelry, underwear & socks, sleepwear, athletic clothing, and lounge/around the house clothes. I also decided this season not to include winter hats or mittens. What is Project 333? It's a capsule wardrobe challenge where you wear 33 items for 3 months. Learn more about it here: http://theproject333.com/about/ Interested in creating your own capsule wardrobe?

5 Min, 5 Product Makeup | Green Beauty
 
02:47
The quick and simple makeup I've been wearing most days this summer. Products used: 1. 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer in Creme http://shrsl.com/j6kq * (I've used both Creme and Alpine Rose, both are a little too dark but Alpine Rose is a bit better for my skin tone) 2. Lily Lolo Mineral Concealer in Barely Beige http://www.lilylolo.co.uk/sp+mineral-concealer+005 3. Red Apple Lipstick custom eyeshadow palette http://shrsl.com/j6kt * (colours I used in this video are Brownie Points for eyebrows and Black Magic for eyeliner) 4. 100% Pure Maracuja Mascara in Blackberry http://shrsl.com/j6ku * (I would not recommend the blackberry shade if you have blond eyelashes like me as it can be very purple, the black or brown is probably better) 5. 100% Pure Lip and Cheek Tint in Pink Grapefruit Glow http://shrsl.com/j6kv * (Shimmery Strawberry is also a great shade if you want some shimmer) Versatile makeup video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsaAT6XNjUc Thanks for watching!

Hair Care | green, natural, & cruelty-free
 
05:36
Since switching to more natural beauty products and growing out my hair it's taken a while to develop a routine I'm happy with, but I think I've finally found something that works well for my hair. :) I currently use: - Argan oil as a pre-wash treatment and occasionally on the ends of my hair - Logona Moisturizing Shampoo - Aloe Vera (vegan) - Rhassoul or ghassoul clay twice a month (I got mine from Ecco Verde https://www.ecco-verde.de/tea-natura/ghassoul-wascherde) - Apple cider vinegar rinse following the clay - wooden brush I had my hair previously dyed with henna, it's mostly gone and grown out but that's why the bottom is more reddish. What are your favorite natural hair products?? Thanks for watching!

Wardrobe Basics NOT in my Capsule | feat. Boody
 
03:54
The staple and essential garments not included in my capsule wardrobe. This video was kindly sponsored by Boody and features some of their bamboo basics. All Boody products made from up to 95% viscose from bamboo, manufactured in a closed-loop system so the liquids and chemicals are recycled/recovered. The majority their designs are knit as tubes which makes them seamless and greatly reduces fabric waste from cutting. My wardrobe foundation pieces and under-layers include: - boyshort and g-string style underwear (examples shown from Boody) - bodysuits and/or thin tanks (example shown from Woron) - regular socks and hidden/ankle socks (examples shown from Boody) - leggings and tights (example from Boody, and check out Swedish Stockings for recycled nylons) - slip dress You can get Boody around the world!
