๐ŸŒผ in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, theyโ€™re also natural and non-toxic.

Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒป What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

Please read till the end...

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.
.
โœง Totally understandable given our current situation, so this is a great time to make sure all of our reusable bags are washed and if needed, repaired ๐ŸŒฟ
.
โœง แด‡แด„แด-แด›ษชแด˜: For bigger and bulkier items, I always like to use boxes (the grocery stores always have these on hand and they're totally free!) and when I forget to bring my reusable bags, I try to limit the number of items I buy to however many I can carry in my hands and out the store.
.
โœง Buying produce (like leafy greens ๐Ÿฅฌ) without a bag is another story... Iโ€™d love to know, do you have any tips or tricks for reducing our plastic consumption while buying produce during these times?

Miss. Frankie – Perfect Stranger Nail Polish Review

Posted on
This post may contain affiliate links.

Oh, Hello Fall! So nice of you to join us. During this time of the year, I’m usually feeling all types of orange and grey colors on my nails. Orange because pumpkin spice and everything nice. And grey because when it rains in Vancouver, it pours.

So my October mood has been: Pumpkins and Grey Skies.

Which leads me to this gorgeous dark grey nail polish color called Perfect Stranger by Miss Frankie. I’ve reviewed and featured a bunch of Miss Frankie’s cruelty-free and vegan nail polish before, which you can see them all here.

Perfect Stranger – Miss. Frankie

Color: Perfect Stranger is described as a moody dark grey for all seasons.

Price: AUD$22 or USD$15

Formula: It appears a little watery at first but builds up nicely after the first coat. By the second coat, I can kind of see my nail line still so I would say this is full coverage in 3 coats. Non-streaky. And as always, I love Miss Frankie’s wide-tapered nail polish brushes; they make application super quick and easy!

Wear Test: lasted 2-3 without chipping.
