Natural Cleaning · Shopping Locally · Sustainable Living · Zero Waste

The Living Natural Project 2017

Ever wondered what it would be like to rid your house of chemicals, reduce your waste to zero or make your own natural cleaning products? I have, but where do I start!

Like many of us, I’ve made small changes over the years, but my home still doesn’t feel healthy or by any means environmentally friendly. So in 2017, I’ve set a challenge to make 1 change each week – big or small – to reduce my impact on the environment and make my home a healthier place.

Check out my progress or join me on this challenge via my weekly post.
