This is wonderful, Kristen! I love how honest you are. Also how you make reducing waste into a fun game 😀

Angi Snowflake says:

Great video. I think it's awesome that you made a video about this. I am very interessted in Zero Wast and already did a some changes that both reduce waste and also saved me a lot of money already. The best one is actuelly to start drinking tap water. I always take a glass bottle filled with tap water to work and even at home I nearly only drink tap water. It's way less expensive, more convinient and better for the health of both the enviorment and me.
Besides that I am also using soap and shampoo bars since quite a while now and I am really happy with them. Also when it comes to traveling these are much lighter which is a great thing as well.
There is more but I don't want to write down everything! Thanks for making such a video because it's so important!

Jervin Quisada says:

IMPRESSIVE! Like it, I made a Amsterdam Travel Video! ⚡️

Jonina N says:

This video is so handy. I hate buying and disposing simple every day things while travelling.
Btw, motherhood looks so good on you!

Neri Domingo says:

I would just like to point out that although it does make an impact that we as consumers make the change towards "zero waste" living, manufacturers should also take a hand in becoming more environment-conscious. If production of non-environment friendly and toxic substances still continue, we as individual consumers could only do so much to keep our ecosystem from totally deteriorating.

holisticmaya says:

How are you liking that Seanik lush bar shampoo? How does it leave your hair feeling?:) I think it would be perfect for my bf who has a similar hair type to yours. Too bad the conditioner doesn’t last as long because I have rather long hair and it’s extremely thick too. How often were you using it? I would only use it once a week:)

holisticmaya says:

Omg i need that blendjet!!! I’ve been looking for something like this for my travels. I don’t even make smoothies that often but I love to blend sauces, cashew cheese, etc… thank you!

Katie Jane Lee says:

If anyone has links to any reusable makeup wipe/cotton pad thingies please let ya girl know! Love the idea!!

cutepoiisonn says:

for the cotton pads, you can always used a old t shirt and or towel!

vivivixen09 says:

What eyeshadow are you using?

Carolyn Karns says:

Where is the little pouch from that you put the spork in I CANT FIND ONE ANYWHERE!!

Andrea's Promenade says:

I use period underwear with the menstrual cup, just in case there is any leak. It’s amazing, I love them, they are so convenient AND low waste!

Elusive Illusion says:

Where did u get a plant 🌱 based bristled tooth brush? The only ones in found have all had plastic bristles.

Jessie Gilbert says:

Actually just about any truck stop has a water option on the soda machine, I refill my water bottle from there and most places don’t charge anything for water.

Leah Delahaye says:

IKEA is a great place to get affordable chargeable batteries, about $5 for a charger and $5-10 for a 4 pack of batteries!

ThermalViolet says:

We're talking about being low waste, right? To be frank, that's a lot of shit to consider essential. You don't 'need' all that crap! You can just bring a fork from home, for example. How many people truly need a wash cloth AND those circular wipey things? This was not really a travel video imo and just a zero waste supply video in general, and not even an 'essentials' video. Get one blender and just put your smoothie into a mason jar! Having tons of supplies is not zero waste! Wow! Unless that's your only blender…. which I mean it is functional and cool, I'm not saying it's not, but it's definitely not an item to include in a video like this. You don't want to inspire people new to the life style to run out and by something like that. It's not a necessary item and it's made of plastic! Come on girl! Be a true game changer!

Jessica Heo says:

This is really informative..I love it

MJ Z says:

Great ideas. Thank you for sharing.

Samara Isbrandt says:

I want to go low waste but I’m still young and I have five other family members. I don’t think my parents would try low waste

Elizabeth Roberts says:

I try to spread the word because it’s sooo much better than Lush’s conditioner; Bar None. It’s also a bar conditioner but drastically more moisturizing, creamier, and all around better! It’s lasts longer too! I buy at Ulta but it’s online of course.

Renee Robinson says:

I agree that it is completely overwhelming to use the term zero waste and for me to attempt to be a zero-waste er!!! I guess I'm going to strive to be a low-waste person. For years I've recycled as much as I can, been using reusable bottles, and have bought loads of reusable grocery bags. All of these I have been doing for years and years. However I have to get a lot better at remembering my reusable bags in the trunk of the car and remembering to bring them into non grocery stores when I shop at those.

Last year I switch to Bamboo to brushes! I stopped buying any kind of plastic food storage containers. I have bought several pretty ceramic bowls that come with plastic tops with vents for the microwave because I also swap them for usable decor, and in the future will probably buy a few glass food storage containers. I also bought wool dryer balls to replace the nuby plastic dryer balls I've been using for years since I stopped using dryer sheets.

And soon I will be purchasing some reusable straws in stainless steel, silicone, and a few pretty glass ones. These are for when I eat out in a restaurant or grab something at a drive-thru. I don't use straws at home that often except for the straws that come in my reusable decorative plastic cups I bought years ago. Now I use double wall metal reusable bottles. I am also going to purchase cloth napkins to use at home and to have one in the car and one in my purse along with a set of silverware from home for when I am out and about.

Adventures of Kate says:

I 100% recommend the bar conditioner from Ethique! I use ‘the guardian’ (the green one) and it lasts for up to six months, I took it on my 5 month trip last year and it lasted the whole time! I’m now into my second bar 🙂 you can get it on amazon!

Adrian Kai says:

I have seen people cut up the bar conditioner and melt it with hot water to make a paste, if you don't want to use a bar 🙂

Thegreypoet says:

I love working towards being gentle on the world. But please remember that many people need straws/other plastic waste things. I'd love to see a video on how the health industry is wasteful and how to do better. Also; jars can be recycled~ don't have to buy mason jars new.
