I want to thank you so much 💙 it's not just about the zero waste life style that i'm really interesting in and this video gave me examples of things that I can start with.. but these beautiful words in the end of the video 💙💙 this really helped me, inspired me.. now i'm more compassionate with myself and with others as well. I live with these words "take one step at a time.. don't be so hard on yourself.. it's a journey and everyone is at a different point.. don't judge others.. it all begins with awarness.." 💙 i'm now more grateful for this awareness.. and everytime I forget these words I come to this video and listen again.. so thank you so much.. love you 💙💙

The only thing i’m absolutely not willing to do is stop using tampons/pads etc. That seems so fuckinh disgusting.

To make less book "waste", use the library!
Laura Kirwan (3 days ago)
good pionts. however, second hand books are an eg of reuse and a carbon sink so will continue to get them.

There's also reusable/washable menstrual pads if you are not comfortable with a menstrual cup :)

I’m pretty much doing all of these things except for the no books thing. I could never give up holding a book in my hand. For some reason, I was never able to get into reading ebooks. Anyways, great video!

I think paper books are irreplaceable. So I'd suggest go to a library and rent books instead of buy new ones.
Samantha Thompson (8 days ago)
I love you View on everyone on different part of their journey. I’ve recently switched to reusable bags and honestly I’m so glad I’ve changed because I can carry so much more in one bag and it never falls apart on me. Also, I’ve started to use reusable containers for bulk items like brown sugar etc. I also bring my own chopstick from home instead of using the wooden ones. I feel like I haven’t done much but, if I look at myself just a couple years ago I’ve already cut my waste by a lot just doing those things. I sometimes feel like some people judge me because I’m still very wasteful but I’m doing the best I can and switching something out almost weekly!
Doktor Tenma (8 days ago)
Okay, here is the question I struggle with. I take plastic bags from markets because I use them instead trash bags. So even if I don't use plastic bags I must use trash bags which are also made from plastic. So what do you suggest me instead those? Sorry for my weak English by the way, I am a nonnative speaker.
U r beautiful ❤

Is using foil wrapper ok, or that should be substituted as well?

For those concerned about the beeswax wraps, look up ones made with soy wax!! They have amazing options on places like Etsy and don’t contain any animal products~

If I may add to this, if youre a baker like me, perhaps switch to silicon cupcake/muffin wrappers. Ive been using them for a year and they work great and are easy to wash :D

also if you don't want to use a cup use tampons with no applicator or cardboard applicator. they are cheaper also and the cardboard is biodegradable

Heyy I love love LOVE this video, it's got a great vibe as well as wonderful tips, but might I add that not everyone that menstrates is a woman, some men and nonbinary folk have periods too, so maybe "people who menstrate" might be a better phrase, or even just non gendered language too ♡ Inclusiveness helps everyone! ♡

TIP For Books: Do not buy new books, there are hundreds of Book Markets where you can find almost any book you want, also, it will probably be cheaper. It is a great option.

If you use the disposable silver wear, bring it home, wash, and reuse it.

to avoid buying and bringing paper books into your home just get a library card and take those books homr to read and return them later!

Addition to the period problem, if you don't want to put something into your body so don't want to use diva cups invest in some period pants - they absorb blood the same as pads or tampons and mine were around £30 but you NEVER have to buy tampons or pads again (which are pretty pricey where I'm from due to the tampon tax). It also means no more chemically treated or plastic products in your most sensitive and absorbent area. No more chaffing or discomfort.I bought mine from https://www.shethinx.com and each one says how many tampons worth of blood it absorbs. I have a couple of pairs and once you wear them you just wash and dry them ready to be worn again. 100% would recommend to all. Some different brands: https://menstrualcupreviews.net/best-period-panties-reviews/

I prefer paper books but whenever it is possible i buy vintage books because it does'nt harm new tress and it is much cheaper than new ones

A good alternative to ebooks is to get a library card!! Just putting that out there!! Also, does anyone know of an alternative, plant based option to the beeswax food savers?

I feel like I do the most damage with water bottles. I don’t know why, but i NEED to drink water from a water bottle closed. I wanna puke if I drink it out of a glass, or a reusable bottle. I drink a lot of water, but since I just can drink it out of a closed water bottle; in one day I could easily waste 9 or so. Any tips recicling them, or just to make a change?
