What would a National Breastfeeding Month series from a menstrual cup company be without a post on periods?? Periods during/after breastfeeding are tricky.  Gone are the days of perfectly timed cycles and knowing when you would start. Unfortunately, I can’t give you cut and dry answers about when your cycle will start but I can […]

Welcome to the second post in our National Breastfeeding Month series!  Last week we looked at common breastfeeding myths, this week we’re going to look at some of the benefits for Mom and Baby.   Mothers know that breast milk is more nutritious and beneficial for their babies but often aren’t sure exactly what the […]

Last year during Waste Less and Be Green in 2015 I introduced you to a different challenge every week and brought in some great Zero Waste and green business women to share their wisdom with you.  Striving for a Zero Waste/ less wasteful life can get lonely in a world of pre-packaged foods, “fast clothes” […]

Tiny House mania is sweeping the nation.  There are several Tiny House shows on TV, tiny house exhibitions are easy to find, and Pinterest is full of Tiny House love (check our board out here!)  What is it that’s so appealing about these homes and would the transition to tiny be right for you? If […]

Ideally, going green would be a lifestyle choice that everyone would adopt. Earth Day is a great way of bringing environmental issues to the forefront of public consciousness, but too often people forget about the planet once April is over. The trick to making greener choices throughout the year is to keep them simple and […]

Most of us living a “green” or Zero Waste lifestyle recycle.  Heck, even many people who wouldn’t consider themselves green at all recycle.  Did you know that there are several errors people frequently make when recycling?  Recycling errors can lead to a “bad” batch of recycling where everything ends up getting trashed!  Let’s make sure […]

Spring is officially here, and with the warmer weather comes the desire to get a fresh start. You’re probably thinking about airing out your home, doing some deep cleaning, and clearing out clutter and older, unused items. Having a closet full of rarely used items just makes it difficult to find what you actually need […]

The first day of Spring is a few days away.  Life here in Colorado is deceiving this time of year.  We’ve had temperatures in the 60s and 70s lately, trees are budding and flowers are blooming.  Springtime in the Rockies, however, means SNOW!  March and April are typically our wettest months of the year and […]

The United Nations-backed International Women’s Day 2016 was celebrated on March 8th, but there’s more to it than just paying lip service to the history of women making change in the world. It’s a day to consider what women can do going forward, to make a positive impact on society and the planet. This year’s […]

It may still be winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on your spring cleaning. After all, who wants to spend the warmer, sunnier months indoors scrubbing all day? Continuing from our theme last week, today we have some great non-edible uses for food scraps. Instead of tossing these small bits […]

The Super Bowl this year, Super Bowl 50, is supposed to be the most viewed television program ever. As a Colorado native and HUGE Broncos fan, you can guess that I’m excited about the upcoming big game.  Now my family doesn’t actually own a TV so most games we listen to on the radio or […]

Happy New Year Everyone! I have taken the last couple weeks off the blog to get myself a bit better organized for 2016 and to enjoy the last bit of winter break with my son.  I’m happy to be back with you all this year to continue learning together about how we can reduce our […]

The Holiday travel season is right around the corner. Families are busy finishing up shopping, securing motel reservations and getting excited to see loved ones.  All that travel does have a significant impact on the Earth.  Fortunately there are some easy ways to reduce our impact and have the trip we desire. Last year we […]

When do you typically decorate for the Holidays? I love how every family has a different timeline and tradition for decorations.  We begin decorating the day after Thanksgiving and gradually add ornaments and decorations over the following weeks.   A couple years ago we made the switch to all LED Christmas lights which are “supposed” […]

According to the EPA waste increases by nearly 25% between Thanksgiving and New Years- accounting for a million tons per week of additional garbage.  Let that sink in a little bit- one MILLION tons per week!!! Most of this is wrapping, bows, boxes, gift bags, etc.  YIKES!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately most gift wrap cannot be recycled- only […]

Halloween is right around the corner. My son starts planning his costume for the next year on Halloween!  We usually go through dozens of ideas before deciding on something right before Halloween.   It is so fun to watch kids get dressed up and tap into their imaginations.  Costumes, however, can be super expensive.  This year […]

Halloween is coming soon!  This is a tough holiday for individuals with food allergies and sensitivities.  It can also be tricky for Zero Wasters with all the food wrappers!   Thankfully the Teal Pumpkin Project launched last year and is gaining popularity-   This project was created by a mom who has a child with food […]

Did you know the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) estimates that 2 BILLION disposable razors a year are thrown away?!?! I can’t even wrap my mind around what that looks like.  Those razors are most likely never going to breakdown- and that doesn’t even count the disposable razor blade heads on refillable razors! Fortunately, there are […]

“Scoopin’ the loop” was the only amusement for adolescents in my rural Iowan hometown on Sunday nights in the summer. The “loop” was the uptown square, and to “scoop” it was to drive in endless circles (squares?) around it. Scoopin’ the loop was tailgating in motion. Teens borrowing their dad’s truck had a five-second window […]

The last couple of weeks we’ve looked at reducing our closets and keeping clothing out of the dumps. One aspect of clothing care that is often overlooked is dry cleaning.  Hangers and garment bags from dry cleaning account for a HUGE amount of waste.  These are usually tossed without second thought. The best option is to […]
