Low/Zero Waste Bathroom Swaps
 
01:32
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!

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!

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??

Some Changes I Have to Make
 
07:01
I'm both really happy and sad/scared to be announcing some changes that will be happening on the channel. I'm so excited to finally remove YouTube ads, they have always bothered me because they're usually not for brands I support and I hated having to rely on them. However I'm also sad to be uploading less because it's been so amazing creating videos for you every week and sharing something I'm passionate about. It's also scary because I don't know what this will mean for the future of my channel, but I feel like it's something I need to do and time to take a step back from youtube.

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?

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!

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.

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.

Why We Can't Stop Buying Fast Fashion | Psychology of Shopping
 
06:40
Let's talk about what's going on in our brains while we're shopping and why it's difficult to change shopping habits. As with anything related to our brains, it's very complex and complicated and a lot is unknown. I'm also obviously not a Psychologist or Neuroscientist so I'm talking about this is a very simplified way, based on the research I've done.

Sustainable Bras & Underwear | eco-friendly & fair fashion
 
08:14
I get so many questions about this topic, so I hope you find this video helpful! There are some great conscious brands (and more are starting up!) but finding eco-friendly and ethically made lingerie can be a challenge, especially if you're looking for specific styles or non-standard sizes. If you can't find what you're looking for, don't forget about longevity and care with any garment (eco brand or not) as a way to have a greener wardrobe!

My usual makeup routine using all natural beauty products.

If you also use natural makeup I'd love to hear your green beauty recommendations and tips!
