Want to buy less fast fashion, but still love to shop? Buy vintage! I love going to second hand shops because you never know what treasures you might find. It’s also good for the environment ánd for your wallet, so what’s not to love?
(Almost) all items on here were thrifted by me, except for the lipstick of course 😉
PS. I still have 20% off on EVERYTHING in my ETSY shop until February 4th.

Happy Thrift Shop Day! Thrift store shopping is so much fun because you never know what kind of unique treasures you might find. Buying used items instead of new ones is also good for the environment ánd your budget; a real win-win-win situation!
Can you believe it’s already February?! Me neither, but it really is, so time to turn my calendar to a new page. If you’re quick you can still get one of the very last copies of my 2019 calendar on Etsy.
Happy national thrift shop day! I love to visit thrift shops when I have time. You never know what treasures you might find. It’s also good for the environment ánd for your wallet. These are some of my personal favourite thrifted items.
Today is World Environment Day and this year’s theme is Beat Plastic Pollution. That’s why I thought I’d share some of the small changes that I’ve recently made to reduce my waste, especially my plastic waste. It’s not perfect by far, but I’m trying to be more mindful about it. If everyone does a little bit, together we can accomplish a lot! The small changes that I’ve illustrated here are só easy to make, I feel that anyone can make them.
- Switch to a bamboo toothbrush
- Use washable face cleaning pads
- Use fabric napkins
- Carry a (fabric) napkin, spork and reusable coffee cup with me
- Buying fruit and vegetables at the local market in (very cute) reusable cotton bags to avoid plastic-wrapped supermarket products.
- Always choose a non-plastic packaging option for everything I buy. (If there is one.)
- Make some products myself from all natural ingredients. (Sea salt spray, dry shampoo and face toner for example are all very easy (and fun) to make. You can find many tutorials on how to do this on YouTube and Pinterest.
These are just some of the things that I’ve personally started doing. If you want more tips on how to reduce your waste there are tons of YouTube videos you can watch on this topic. I like watching these because I keep finding new ideas on how to improve my waste reduction. Hopefully soon I can make a new illustration with the next “green” steps that I’ve taken. 😉
