Zero Waste Sex

Let’s talk about sex. I have never written about sex before on Trash is for Tossers because it is one of those subjects that people get all weird about which is funny because one of the first questions people ask me is “how do you have sex if you live a Zero Waste life?” A question that I have shamefully,…

Cleaning the Toilet Without Waste

Cleaning the toilet is definitely not the most glamorous thing in the world, but at least it isn’t hard. Some people use bleach and other nasty chemicals to get their bathroom clean, not me! My method is completely non-toxic! I use four things to clean my toilet: 1) Organic liquid castile soap 2) Distilled white vinegar 3) Washcloth 4) Plastic…

Zero Waste Period

So obviously no one really likes getting their period. Let’s face it, except for when you jump for joy when you get it because you realize you aren’t pregnant when you don’t want to be, they suck. I especially don’t like them because I turn into the absolute worst person in the world when I get my period, my ex can…

Bamboo Toothbrushes

Think about your toothbrush for a second. Yes, i’m serious.

I Cut My Hair Off

I cut 11 inches of my hair off. Okay, maybe this was partially done because I was feeling lazy, a little hormonal, and didn’t want to wash my own hair yesterday… but it was also done because my hair was 30 feet long, crazy thick, and totally donatable. I am obsessed with Locks of Love and have always wanted to contribute to them.…

Why I Became a Diva Cup Diva

Guest Post by Katherine Kartis I am a newly converted Diva cup diva. I refuse to use tampons. Period (pun intended!) It all began a few months ago when I was shopping at Whole Foods in the toiletries aisle with a girlfriend. While I consider myself to be a naturalist, this particular friend takes the all-natural movement to a new…

Zero Waste Toothpaste

I once told my boyfriend that I would never brush my teeth with baking soda like he did, and went so far as to scoff at his “unhygienic” ways. I guess the alien idea of being clean without using a packaged product with miscellaneous ingredients was too farfetched and implausable for me at the time. But here I am. Less…
