Journey to Zero Waste Living

Adopting a zero waste lifestyle is a process, and you can choose what your goal is and how to reach it. Take part in workshops, shop for products, attend events. Every step is a step in the right direction. If you don't know where to begin, I recommend starting with a trash audit - ask me for details. It's fun, easy and enlightening to do!

Use and Care of Beeswax Food Wraps

To use, simply shape your cloth around the food item you wish to cover, and with the warmth of your hands you can soften the wax and seal the wrap. It's perfect for cheese, fruit, snacks, plate covers. To clean your waxed wraps and bags, simply pass under warm running water or gently wipe with a warm damp soapy cloth. Hang or lay flat to dry, then reuse, over and over.

zero waste for the holidays

tuesday, December 8, 7:00pm

Are you wondering if the holidays would be as bright and cheery if you chose to decorate and wrap and enjoy with waste awareness in mind? Let me assure you that you can still have all the glitz, shine, colour and glitter with a zero waste version. Join this FREE workshop to learn how to create, wrap and decorate with a zero waste mindset. The focus is going to be on my favourite motto "something from nothing". When you register I'll send you a link to the virtual event as well as a supply list made up of a few simple items you already have around your home. Or, for a small fee, you can pick up a supply kit from me and get ready to craft with the bag of goodies I've put together for you. Registration is required. Registration opens soon.

    I attended a DIY Beeswax Wraps Workshop with All Things Preserved. It was so much fun learning how to make the wraps, and I am using them so often in my kitchen already! I will definitely be buying beeswax wraps again. Thank you Susan!
