Podcast - A conversation with Peggy La Point of Talking Trash

The Talking Trash Podcast by Peggy La Point with Conscious by Chloé

I was a guest on Talking Trash, a green tips podcast.

Talking Trash, a Green Tips podcast is a chance for Peggy La Point to dive into the world of sustainability by talking to people in business and non-profits, and folks knee-deep in the field of sustainability.

In this episode, Peggy & I chatted about the Zero Waste Conference, the Master Recycler program and Zero Waste PDX.

Here's a link to my Talking Trash podcast episode. I hope you'll enjoy it!

And don't forget to check out my Zero Waste PDX project.

I'm gonna put the final touches to the tiny house we moved into last week and wander around my new neighborhood.

I hope you'll have a great one and in the meantime, here are a few things that made my week and a couple links from around the web...

Self Care - Pretend You're a Hotel Guest

SOL Organics Classic Organic Bedding Bundle King White by Conscious by Chloé

Whenever Octave leaves town and I have the opportunity to spend some time alone at home. Something irremediably happens: I start moving furniture all around the house!

It's a way for me to reappropriate the space, flex my interior designer muscles and give our little house a breath of fresh air.

Our bedroom situation is not the easiest to furnish: 4 walls (duh), 2 windows, 2 doors, 1 air vent under one the windows, 0 bare wall.

The best situation I had found until now, so we would each have space to walk around the bed and room for a bedside table was to put the bed in the middle of the room far enough from the window so the air can circulate through the vent and so we wouldn't freeze our brains against it in the winter. But this meant no head support for reading - since we do not have a headboard (I'm totally considering DIYing one next summer).

Strangely enough I had not changed this configuration in close to a year, and then, I got a package from SOL Organics with brand new white & organic cotton bedding and knew it was time to spruce things up a little.

I switched the bedroom rug with the living room one, ditched one of the 2 bedside "tables", brought in plants, and piled pillows to create the coziest reading nook on my bed.

Our bed is a queen but our comforter is a king. I learned that trick a couple years ago. I love a comforter that cascades around the bed and hides our ugly bed frame. I love its weight and having the luxury to be able to get lost under the sheets without fighting for the covers with your partner.

As for pillowcases - if duvet covers and pillowcases come as a set - I either make small alterations so they fit my queen-sized pillows, or, like here, put two of them in each pillowcase.

If I ever have to buy new pillows, I might upgrade to king-sized ones too. But I'm happy my our current set. We'll see when the time comes!

I read somewhere that a great way to make your room fresh and cozy is to pretend you're in a hotel room.

And, to me, nothing says hotel room better than soft white sheets. There's something so luxurious to having soft, quality white sheets! They make a room bright, give a feeling of peace and are simply a perfect blank canvas which allows small details to stand out, like a bright-colored pillow, plants or a piece of artwork.
