People ask me all the time how much work is involved in living zero waste and the answer is not much more than someone living less sustainable. Of course we grow 70% of our own food and that requires some of our time and we spend about 30 minutes each on that per day. But the rest, shopping in bulk, washing cloth napkins, baking bread does not take more time than shopping at vons or calling for takeout. I always tell people that we are not doing this to complicate our life instead doing this to uncomplicated it.

Posted @withregram • @arraynow If you think you have mastered recycling and composting, wait until you meet the Syren family! They set a shining example for us all through their commitment to ensuring a thriving future for our planet. Although they wouldn't give up their zero-waste lifestyle, it was important to Fredrika and James to open their kids' eyes to a different way of life. Take the adventure with them on the new episode of #HomeSweetHome tonight on @nbc at 8/7c.

Cozy morning begins with candle lights, clean burning of course and we prefer soy candles that are unscented.

Unfortunately, many conventional candles contains toxic chemicals that pollutes your indoor air so make sure to do you research to make sure you only burn clean burning candles this fall.
