What are you up to this weekend?

I'm giving a Zero Waste Home Tour and plan on going to the museum since admissions are discounted on the first Sunday of the month.

I hope you'll have a great one and in the meantime, here are a few things that made my week:

A BOOK - Garbology by Edward Humes

You can find all my favorite Zero Waste related books on my bookshelf.

A SONG - Fenceline by Anna Tivel

I got to meet Anna, a Portland singer-songwriter a few weeks ago and discovered this moving song about a crossing between two lands...

A PODCAST - Welcome to the Margalaxy! by Mystery Ingredient: The Vegan Iron Chef Podcast

My friend Margaux is an incredibly talented entrepreneur. Not only does she co-own a juice cart, Best Friend, but she also runs her own vegan treats business, Margalaxy!

A VIDEO - The Power of Knowing Who Made Your Clothes by Kohl Crecelius

I met Kohl when I lived in SoCal and have been following his journey ever since, from teaching women in Uganda how to crochet to creating a global movement by asking a simple question: Who made my clothes?

A DIY - A foraged Wreath

I'm not super into holiday decor, but I like foraging and it might be time I updated my current wreath.

A RECIPE - Garlic and Rosemary Skillet Bread by The Food Charlatan

My friend Rémi made this bread for our Fall Feast and I might have eaten at least half of it. I cannot wait to make it again, once I've recovered from the food coma.

And a couple links from around the web...

  • I wrote this Vegan Guide to Portland for Here and There Collective.

  • I loved how Candice recreated a looked she loved on Pinterest with items from her own wardrobe in this Recreate to Renew.

  • Food waste is a precious material that should not end up in a landfill, an environment that was not designed to process decomposing material and where food waste produces greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to global warming and climate change. Sign up for free on Share Waste to offer or find a composting option in your area.

  • I'm working on updating my shop in time for the holidays, so if you're in the hunt for Zero Waste and durable gifts, head this way.
