Simply Living Well
Author: Julia Watkins
Julia shares with us rituals, recipes, and projects for living simply and sustainably at home. She shows us how to eliminate wasteful packaging, harmful ingredients, and disposable items in every area of th household, including the kitchen, cleaning, wellness, bath, and garden.
Practical checklists outline easy swaps (instead of disposable sponges, opt for biodegradable sponges or Swedish dishcloths; choose a bamboo toothbrush over a plastic one) and sustainable upgrades for common household tools and products. Projects include scrap apple cider vinegar, wool dryer balls, kitchen bowl covers and cloth produce bags, non-toxic dryer sheets, all-purpose citrus cleaner, herbal tinctures and balms, and more, plus recipes for package-free essentials like homemade nut milk, hummus, ketchup, salad dressings, and veggie stock.
