Last week I told you more about the 5R’s of zero waste. The biggest part is to refuse things I said, single use things mainly. But what if there is an item that is zero waste and you just don’t want to refuse? It’s not impossible, it happens to me too. Today I want to … More Greeting cards: a single use item I don’t refuse
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 … More The 5R’s of zero waste
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 … More Zero waste snack: roasted chickpeas
Now that I think about it, it feel kind of strange that I have not dedicated a full blogpost to this subject.

I think you’ve noticed by now: I am an entrepreneur! Wow. That sounds so fancy. And it is! I have started my own webshop for package free groceries in Enschede: Loose, to do something about our big problem with waste. It has been fun, exiting and scary at the same time. Currently I am working … More Making my own business cards
Before I start, I should say that this post is the most interesting for Dutch people. Because, today, I want to share some more about ‘Het Plasticdieet‘ (the plastic diet in Dutch)! As you might have read in my Weekly diary, I was a speaker at the kick-off event of ‘Het Plasticdieet’ and I am very … More A month without plastic: Het Plasticdieet (the plastic diet)
I’ve shared before which sunscreen I use. Today I’m sharing this again since I switched! In this blogpost (which is still in Dutch) I shared which one I used, it was a good option back then. Right now it isn’t anymore. I’ve switched to Suntribe! Today I want to share with you why.
Recently I’ve read this post from Zaailingen. In this article Linda calculates the impact she has had on the environment the past year, and the sees wether she is living within the capacity of the earth or not. I was very curious. Not just about her, but also about me. I know I’ve been making some great … More How sustainable have I lived the past year?
