Are you Greek?
– I’m half Greek half Portuguese.

Where do you live?
– In Greece

Why do you have an American accent?
– My parents grew up in the US so I was raised bilingual speaking Greek and English

What camera do you use?
– For my main videos I use the canon 5d mark ii with a 24-70mm f/2.8 sigma lens or the 40mm pancake lens. For vlogs usually my gopro hero 4 silver or the canon s120 (very bad audio, wouldn’t recommend this to anyone)

Where can I find a list of ethical brands?

I LOVE your whale tattoo. So cute. Ugh.

madison.smiles says:

you're such an inspiration ๐Ÿ’•

Josephine Koch says:

everyone should join the zero waste club!

Meow Glab says:

I don't think I could use a menstrual cup…………… I just don't want any blood or nasty shit in my sink. That's where my clean hands and my mouth cleaning stuff goes. And once in a while, everyone drops their toothbrush in there. I don't want to ever drop my toothbrush and then know "now there's PERIOD BLOOD GERMS ON THIS". Maybe that's just me, I'm kind of a germaphobe.

Diana Nguyen says:

new goal in adult life: get a bidet

Kathleen Ann says:

What about the bag the pods come in?

Hannah Trilling says:

Hey!! I love your channel!

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know about @eco_dreams on Instagram! I've been following them for awhile, and they are an eco-friendly and zero-waste company that specializes in reusable period products. I really think you should check them out!

So yeah, I just wanted to let you know! ๐Ÿค—

Helene says:

Cleancult only ships to the US tho? But you live in Greece? I'm confused…

Aurora Wolf says:

I was looking for a bidet for so long!!!Yaaaass !!!Love your video as always ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Greener Living Charlotte says:

you're going an awesome job! Just wondering though; the laundry detergent comes in plastic??, i'm confused is it recycled plastic or recyclable?

Sofia Rosas says:

you have the same menstrual cup as me!!

Steph P. says:

does cleancult ship internationally (Germany)?

Kalin Elizabeth LaPlace says:

As a 0 waste beginner, the first thing I did was get reusable straws for this big 30 oz cup I have. I carry it around with me or bring the straws when I go out to eat so I'm not wasting a random straw or constantly throwing cups away. Also, I get my facial moisturiser in these small tubs, and when I finish the product I clean the tub and put coconut oil mixed with shea butter in it for my haircare, because my jar of coconut oil is running low and my gross man hands don't fit in the jar.

ILoveYou says:

yo periods are extremely sacred… its a necessary part of being the childbearing sex ๐Ÿ˜› thanks for the tip <3

Cathrin B says:

Hey Kristen, you really inspired me to shop at thrift stores instead of fast fashion stores! It's so much more fun and makes me feel really good. Also in general your channel is really inspiring. I followed you for videos on veganism, but I love the path you have taken.

Greisy H says:

How do you make the little animations (intro) ? I loved this video and I suggest you try composting if it's possible

Delaney says:

I have been watching your channel for a long time and I'm still in love with your videos and passion for everything you believe in. I too have long, thick, wavy/curly hair and was hoping for updates on your hair care and maybe more tutorials? Thanks !

Celimene says:

You deserve so much more subscribers and views! I always learn so much things when I watch your videos Kristen, I love it!!! ๐Ÿ˜. Thanks for all the tips and links. Love youuuuuu

Four Hemispheres says:

Your hair looks magical! And good on you for sharing this ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’Ÿ

Melissa Loves Thrifting says:

I need to tell my husband about that bidet! He's Italian and he thinks it's disgusting that North America as a whole doesn't use them! ๐Ÿ˜›

panic! at the twenty รธne pilรธts disco says:

I switched to a plant based diet this month and I feel SO good. My skin is pretty clear (I do have some spots because I'm 14 so my hormones are acting crazy) and I have so much more energy. You inspire me a lot โค๏ธ Could you do a video on vegan snacks and vegan food that would be easy to bring to school? Love from Finland ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ โค๏ธ

Machka0 says:

I have been using my mooncup for over half a year now and I like it, I'm glad I reduced the amount of trash that I make with this, and I'm saving money. There are even no leaks anymore, after a few in the begining when I was still learning to use it. Every woman should switch to this ๐Ÿ™‚

Roxie Whitmire says:

I'm genuinely confused and curious…. What about deforestation vs wasting clean water? Using tp isn't great for the environment, but isn't it a waste of water for it to be used in a bidet?

Trying to reduce waste can be so confusing.

Maiara Caroline says:

Hi, would you mind making a video recommending Depop sellers with a style similar to yours? Thanks.

living unjaded says:

Lol that bidet though! Props for trying that out–still haven't gotten that far, even though Tushy makes it seem cool. If you're still wiping, an easy ZW-ish swap is to use TP wrapped in recyclable/compostable paper ๐Ÿ™‚

lackofcorporate says:

I have always been so into wet wipes then I realized how wasteful they are, and how they are just more effective because water is the best way to get clean!! Bidets ftw

lackofcorporate says:

I love my Meluna cup! I hope you like yours. I wear pantyliners everyday I got them from an Etsy shop called CarolinesCreations they've lasted me years, I believe they do ship internationally as well (:

C Stefan says:

I had accidentally stumbled upon your video and wanted to say congratulations….good sensible living lessons presented in an captivating and thoughtful manner. This is a great next step and there are many more aspects of ones daily routines that could be returned to clean honest living such as our dish soap, bathing oils and shampoos that not only effect our bodies yet our environment as you have wonderfully explained. Please continue to search out products and share as you are a natural at embracing an audience's attention. I am confident you will keep making an impact by changing the world for the better one little change at a time that's all we as a human could ever hope for. Thank you…you are appreciated
