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...
PS: Follow me on Spotify.

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.
PS: Follow Conscious by Chloé on Pinterest.

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.

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.

Fashion Revolution

Next week is Fashion Revolution Week. Take action and ask "Who Made my Clothes?"

What are you up to this weekend?

Today's my birthday so I'm gonna treat myself a little. First by working from one of the many new coffee shops that have popped up in Portland while I was in Europe and then by going for a walk, taking in as much sun as possible and admiring all the beautiful spring flowers.

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