House Plant Stylings

So you want to adopt a house plant? Unlike fur babies, real babies, or goldfish, house plants are a commitment that’s within reach of most folk regardless of their ability to care and/or time commitments. The only thing that one really has to be on the look out for is that your plant baby is the right  for your care factor level. If you really like the idea of greenery in your home but forget to brush your teeth most nights and...

Sleep Well and Look Good

Sleeping Beauty had it worked out. We all know it but not all of us are game to admit it- no amount of coffee or concealer will make up for a restless night. Sleep is one of those wonderful things in life that is free, makes us look and feel good, and can be as easy as closing your eyes. However, for some of us (my dear hubby included) sleep isn’t all that easy! We have busy schedules, parental demands (fur babies included), and...

Label Love: Flora Stationery

Back to school! For some of us Uni students here in Australia August is generally the time of year where we start to get back into the swing of things and knuckle down for another 13+ weeks of hard-thinking-yards. While study can be a great way to expand your mind, it doesn’t alway result in an expansion of horizons. In fact most of the semester is spent hunched over a computer or slouched in a lecture chair. The good thing is...

Recycled Paper Notebook

Giving a Crap About Paper A little while back I changed my toilet paper options to something that better suited my personal values. First and foremost I was looking for a way to buy my recycled toilet paper plastic free, and secondly I was pretty stoked I could fund sanitation projects in developing countries while wiping my bottom. Double win. The downside? Annoying amounts of toilet paper wrapping. Unfortunately the two companies I...

Bohemian Living, Business Ethics, and Coffee with Tupac.

Bohemian Love with Zarpar | Global Living Since I began my blogging journey with Sustainability in Style I have had the joy of starting loads of eco-conversations with interesting folks from across the Globe. I feel very grateful to be able to chat with likeminded people who come from all walks of life and have all kinds of unique skills and life experiences.

An Eco Mothers Day to Remember

‘Mum’ is the hardest job going. Mothers do it tough. They work around the clock providing love, care, and well wishes for their children. It’s more than a full time job, it is a lifestyle. Those who choose to take on the massive responsibility of motherhood sometimes do so without much daily acknowledgment of the sacrifices they make to keep a household running. Which is why we need prompts like Mothers day to remind...

Tips and Tricks: Green Clean

  Cleaning Green  Cleaning products are a tricky one. The advertisements on television tell us that visitors judge us by how clean our toilet is and that our floors need to be spotless enough to eat off to ensure the health and safety of our family. While household hygiene is always a good way to win friends and influence people, there is a growing concern over the use of chemical based cleaning products and the effects they can...

Take Action: Plastic Free July & Nut Milk

  Ok… I am a little behind the eight ball with the Plastic Free July challenge information. One week and one day to be precise. However we can look at it from the point of view that any day is a good day to start reducing plastic. Some of you may remember that month I spent collecting, photographing and weighing my household waste. It has been seven months since the Waste Weigh Up challenge ended but I can safely say it has...

Mindful Eating: Alnatura Wholefoods

For those of you who have been with me for a while now you may remember back to a time when I committed one month to collecting, analysing and weighing my garbage and even followed it to the landfill to see where it ends up. Yup… sounds crazy doesn’t it. It was a bit crazy. However it was also one of the most informative and liberating experiences of my sustainability journey yet and one that I would recommend to every...
