my thoughts on climate change

My main reason for trying to choose more eco-friendly options is less about climate change and more about Jesus. // I don’t want to litter because that destroys the beautiful world God created. // I don’t want to buy fast fashion because I care about the treatment of the workers. // I don’t want to […]

EGG

This week, as I told my siblings, I have been an adult with delicious food. (Actually, in the message it was all in caps, but that might scare off potential readers.) My parents have been away, which brings with it the freedom to experiment in the kitchen and quietly throw anything away that doesn’t turn […]

Eco-Friendly Implementation

Since Sunday’s post I’ve been thinking about ways I can implement more eco-friendly steps at work. On Monday I made myself a recycling-box, as that was an issue area for me, but there’s more I can be doing. Here’s what I’ve thought of so far: 1/ Buy local where possible. (Okay, this isn’t specifically eco-friendly, […]

Environmental Accountability

Lately I’ve been re-inspired by all things eco-friendly and minimal. Not that I ever stopped being interested, and I haven’t ‘forgotten’ to be more aware of waste, but after the initial excitement of researching something new, it’s easy to push it to the back of your mind. The other day I bought some Australian-made, organic, […]

Reversing the Damage to Our Environment

Taking care of the earth is a hot topic right now, and probably will be until Jesus returns. I say this because I believe that no amount of meat-free Monday’s we participate in (with our metal straws at the ready) can reverse some of the damage already done to this planet. In light of this, […]

The Effects of Minimalism

I posted an eco-friendly update here, but I wanted to write about the positive effects minimalism has had on my life thus far. As I’ve said, I’ve always been a neat, organised person who doesn’t like clutter or mess, but even so I’ve decluttered further in the last few weeks. I wouldn’t call myself a […]

Declutter: Ten Things

I thought I’d make a list of ten things that are relatively easy to declutter; they’re main areas that usually build up items we don’t like or need. 1/ Clothes My top tip for this is: take everything out of the wardrobe. Looking at an item in your closet makes you more likely to leave […]

Eco-Friendly: An Update

Nearly ten days ago I posted this, which spoke of my want to be more eco-friendly and minimalistic. It hasn’t been too long, but I felt like blogging a little update, so here we are! Here’s what’s happened since that blog post: 1/ I bought a phone case that’s compostable I’ve been wanting a new […]

Sewing: Reusable Cotton Rounds

If you remember from this post, I said that one small step I want to take to help the environment was to sew reusable cotton rounds. I use disposable ones to remove makeup and nail polish, and that’s a lot of waste. Sewing reusable ones wasn’t that hard, either; I spent half an hour one […]

Roasted Chickpeas

I roasted a tin of chickpeas on Sunday. Well, it was meant to be a tin of chickpeas; in all honesty, I did eat several handfuls before they made it onto the tray. To be fair, I was hungry and they were nicer than I expected them to be. I looked up many recipes, and […]
