Since I’ve lived my entire life in California, the outdoors have always been a big part of my life. In my childhood I spent hours playing outside and as I grew older I turned to other outdoor activities like running, camping, and trips to the lake. As an adult some of my favorite trips involve the great outdoors and although other places are beautiful, there’s no place that has my heart as much as my own backyard. Today I’ve partnered with Athleta to share some of my favorite places to hike in California as well as a look at their new sustainable line.
Years ago I purchased my first reusable bag for groceries. Shortly thereafter plastic bags were banned in my area, and now they’re banned in all of California. It really got me thinking about the type of waste I create, and for a long time now I’ve become more focused on my efforts to reduce the waste I create and bring home with my groceries. Today I’m sharing my favorite and the easiest way to create less waste, by using reusable bags for shopping. I’m sharing some of my favorites for buying different items (you’d be amazed at what you can find in bulk), as well as a few other common wasteful items to replace.
