      Would you mind doing a follow up video on this please? Just showing what you have adapted into your everyday life and my taking on a few bigger things like female sanitary products. (which is by the way a massive waste and burden on the environment) I love your content. Please keep it up.

    We honestly need to pay attention more. Like, bees are dying and they help with almost 2/3 of our food. We don’t want everything to end up in the ocean. Anyone want to team up and help? We definitely need it.

    To be honest, I'm glad you did this 'challenge', but I think now that you've educated yourself, you really can't go back to that lifestyle of waste Michelle. Please keep it up and take onus over your responsibility to the planet. P.S. never buy online, there's no need and its so wasteful!

    You were confused when they couldn't weight your mason jar of almonds? :P They'd have no way to know the weight of the jar without emptying the contents first, which would have been seen as unsanitary or something i suppose.
    Also, little related thing: mailing packaging can definitely be reused. I always save mine.

    With the paper towel thing my family has almost completely switched over to using exclusively towels. We have specific ones for hand drying and others for dish drying or cleaning. We still have some paper towels just because we cant use towels for everything but we have greatly reduced the amount we use.
    Also I have to wonder about the people that live almost or completely waste free, what do you do about floss?

    My first step towards living more sustainably was choosing to cloth diaper my baby. Then I chose to use my tax refund to get a Berkey Water Filter. Then I chose to get metal straws, then a dish soap block and bamboo brush instead of a bottle of liquid dish soap and bag of disposable sponges... it’s been snowballing for me lately and I’m working hard to consciously make the effort and put in the work to take an extra step. One day it’ll be my daily norm and I hope it will be for you as well.

    I find dairy the hardest thing to do zero waste. Of course I recycle my milk container but can’t find it as a refill.
    I don’t make toothpaste, baking soda can be really bad for your teeth. It makes me really mad when I can’t find small produce at the store.
    It gets easier and I figure the packaging for a reusable bag is worth it because it’s one piece of cardboard replacing all the trash you’d make otherwise. The jar of trash is so unrealistic. You get used to it but in some cases you just can’t. Like medication, there’s no alternative to that.

    Cloth bags (tight weave) for bulk buying. Also wax wraps for sandwiches (i.e. Abeego, Bees Wraps, etc). Just a thought.
