I have adopted a different but still zero waste (or at least fairly zero waste) hair routine. Here it is:

For my zero waste hair I do:
🔸Refillable shampoo and conditioner
🔸Bamboo comb and brush
🔸Plastic free hair ties
🔸coconut oil as hair shine

Our dream of self sufficient living and economic freedom is work in progress and today we grow 80% of our own food saving us lots of money, we are blessed to feed our kids organic homegrown food with little carbon footprint. I say dream big, enjoy the journey and count your blessings.

We needed a desk for our home office but we’re doing a no buy so lucky us we found one that our neighbors discarded. I don’t know who said it here on Instagram but we need to normalize second hand shopping, or in our case rescue furniture from going to a landfill. It’s better for the planet and our wallet.

One of our biggest mistake we did when we decided we would do a no buy challenge was forgetting to include the kids in the decision. It was a big parent fail moment. We for sure should have had that discussion as a family however I’m firmly believe teaching children about money and budget is so important. Our kids have their own money they have saved up and can use them buying things they want if they wish and I am amazed how they love saving instead of spending it and how they keep track off how much they have and how they can keep growing their savings.

Growing up we always has raw grated carrots with almost every meal. I like some raw and crunchy veggies with my meals and today I do the same for my family and my youngest calls it the sunshine salad and love adding raw sunflower seeds and sprouts to our salad. I love adding raw veggies that are a packed with beta carotene, fiber and antioxidants.
