Doing laundry is (unfortunately) just part of all of our lives. I don't particularly like doing laundry and will wear my clothes over and over again until I really need to wash them. At times, my loving partner will have to remind me that it's time to wash something, when I crawl into bed with dirty pajamas! I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for your love life...

Are you obsessed with paper towels? Well apparently you're not the only one! The Atlantic wrote an article in 2018 titled "Americans are weirdly obsessed with paper towels" and the numbers back it up. Out of every country in the world, we spend way more money on paper towels.

Recently though, I've discovered a zero waste sham
One of the first things I looked at when going zero waste was the skin care and cosmetic products I used. Growing up as a teen, I didn't wear a lot of makeup at all. I started wearing mascara and eye liner at about sixteen but it wasn't until college that I started exploring foundations, blushes, and powders. I did, however, use a ton of lotions, facial sprays, toners, and body products. I was basically an addict when it came to buying different types of soaps! Since going ze
