Your journey to a
zero waste lifestyle begins here!

Are you doing your best to be kind to the earth?

Are you on a journey to zero waste living?

Susan is, and wants you to as well! She showcases handmade items that help you become a better steward of the earth. They are refashioned, reclaimed, repurposed and/or reinvented, and they all support a zero waste lifestyle. Susan also leads workshops on sustainable homesteading activities.
