In episode 6 I chat with my friend Larisa Barth. She is such an encouragement to me when it comes to a low-waste lifestyle. Her and her family have drastically reduced the amount of waste they produce and she is here today to share her tips and also items she uses for low-waste travel. Get a pen and paper handy because you’re sure to need it.
WHAT YOU WILL HEAR US TALK ABOUT:
Her road to minimalism
How her family started to be more aware of the waste they were producing.
Her health story and how it helped her find a lower waste lifestyle.
How opening up her mind to a low waste life helped her reduce the chemicals in her home too.
How she stays low waste in her small town.
Her tips on making oat milk at home.
Not worrying about having all the wood items, that no matter what you can make a difference.
Owning it! Having confidence in your choices of living a low-waste lifestyle.
We talk about my dislike of bamboo toothbrushes and her alternative to that.
Traveling with kids and fun things to keep them occupied in the car during long drives.

ITEMS WE TALK ABOUT:
Glass bottles (for toxin free DIY hair detangler and body spray).
Konjac sponge (100% natural sponge from the konjac root for gentle exfoliation.)
Bars of soap (We found a local organic soap maker and buy in bulk. They give us a great deal because we ask for no packaging. Our backup if we run out is Dr. Bronners, available at most natural and big box stores now.)
