What are you up to this weekend?

I'm hoping to go camping along the Oregon Coast to breathe some fresh and disconnect after a technology full week.

I hope you'll have a great one and in the meantime, here are a few links from around the web:

  • Tillak, a brand that allocates 25% of its benefits to conservation efforts launches the world's most versatile waterproof backpack!

  • Tampax is launching its own menstrual cup. Thoughts?

  • Got too much stuff? Try these 7 tips to help pare down

  • My friend Christine of Snapshots of Simplicity published a wonderful book to help you make your home more sustainable.

  • I e-met Hawnuh Lee of Closed-Loop Cooking and cannot wait to meet her IRL and work together with her and explore sustainable food systems to help reduce food waste and single use items in the kitchen!

  • I found the most perfect tote bag, which is just the right size for grocery shopping, package-free style.

  • I have yet to write about the Zero Waste Conference I co-organized 2 weeks ago, but in the meantime, check out Jenica of Zero Waste Wisdom's article about it.

  • I loved reading this article by Alden of Ecocult about the Swiss brand QWSTION who designed a fair trade, sustainable, zero-waste backpack made from banana fiber.

  • I attended an Portland Textile Month event where Oregon-based Renewal Workshop presented their zero waste system which takes discarded apparel and textiles and turns them into Renewed Apparel, upcycled materials or recycling feedstock.

  • I learnt in this article that some of the biggest recycling operations are owned by landfill companies whose profits improve when recycling doesn’t work well.
