Zero Waste Beauty Gift Guide
Winter hasn’t arrived yet but the holiday spirit is alive and well.
I try to live as close to zero waste as possible. I encourage anyone to take smell steps such as swapping plastic straws for reusable ones. Other options: making a few meals from home, bringing reusable (I have cotton) bags to the farmers market. Plastic bags should become a thing of the past.
Living sustainably should not mean living perfectly. None of us are perfect and to put ourselves on that pedestal can lead to burnout or feel like we aren’t reaching a standard. My hope Is that someday living sustainably will not be viewed as an exclusive standard, but that it can become accessible for everyone.
It is that time of year y’all, winter is coming and so are the holidays! Winter holds a special place in my heart. It yokes back to warm mugs of marshmallow filled hot cocoa, the shorter days gently nudging you to spend as much time in the daylight but once the skies dim you can always count on twinkling lights to guide the way (I can’t help but romanticize the seasons!)
I’ve come to realize that winter is a season of coming together. it harkens you to go inward and find warmth from the chill and reconnect with kin & company. As lovely as that does sound, it’s not always the smoothest sailing during the holidays. Some of us get stressed, some have too much on their plates, everyone has their own story during this time of the year so I hope yall remember to take deep breaths and focus on yourself first.
Here I have curated four gift guides that feature products that are either sustainable, handmade by artisans, and are wellness staples. There is guide for a cozy night in, the wildflower spirit, the conscious hostess (or yourself!), and self-care lounge. I wanted to select pieces that serve a purpose and function. Supporting local + handmade craft is a passion of mine and I enjoy observing the personality of the maker shine through their creations. Comfort + repose also come to mind when the weather drops. Of course everything in this guide is plant-based & vegan
