Zero Waste Recipe: Quick Cashew Milk

By: Ariana Palmieri

Anybody up for some quick cashew milk? I know I am: I'm rather impatient (at least when it comes to food), so I like really simple, time efficient recipes. A lot of cashew milk recipes I see online require you to soak the cashews for at least 3 hours, or overnight. Yawn. No thanks. If you don't feel like soaking cashews (or any nuts) for hours just to get milk, I hear you. That's why I decided to share this zero waste recipe for quick cashew milk: It only takes about 30 minutes to make. No soaking, no straining and no nut pulp: Just creamy, delicious, plant-based milk.

Zero Waste Cleaning: Orange Peel Vinegar Cleaner

Recently, I posted a photo on Instagram of my (at the time, unfinished) orange peel vinegar cleaner: It got a lot of likes and so many people expressed interest in making some. That's why I figured it'd be a good idea to share the recipe on my blog, along with my opinion of it as a cleaner. It's really not hard to make at all and makes for easy zero waste cleaning. Oh, and it smells amazing.

Zero Waste Recipe: No Bake Vegan Chocolate Bites

By: Ariana Palmieri

If you have a sweet tooth like me, you always appreciate the taste of chocolate. While I do prefer organic chocolate, even that comes in a wasteful wrapper. What's a girl to do? Well, thankfully I've devised a zero waste recipe for no bake vegan chocolate bites and it's absolutely amazing. Because this recipe is vegan and no bake, it only takes an hour or so to make (and most of that hour is spent waiting for the chocolate to harden in the freezer). It's only got 3 ingredients (cocoa, coconut oil and maple syrup) making it extra easy and extra healthy. Gift them to give your sweetie on Valentine's Day (or eat them by yourself, watching some Netflix - I don't judge). Either way they'll be sure to please. What more could you ask for?

Review: Kypris Beauty - Cleanser Concentrate + Glow Philtre

kypris beauty review

By: Ariana Palmieri
I'm very picky when it comes to skin care products now a days: I like efficiency, but need clean ingredients I can feel good about putting on my skin. But, perhaps most importantly, I have to love the packaging. No, I'm not saying this to sound superficial, I mean it in the best way: It needs to be zero waste friendly packaging. So items in disposable plastic, or plastic in general, are not exactly ideal. I want to be able to reuse any container I have and make it last, even once its contents are gone. Thankfully, Kypris Beauty gets it. They not only have amazing products with clean, all-natural ingredients, but also reusable packaging. Everything is packaged beautifully in glass, including their Cleanser Concentrate and Glow Philtre (which are the two products I have). Score! No nasty rigid plastic here, and no toxins. The Cleanser Concentrate is just that (a cleanser) and the Glow Philtre can double as a mask or gentle exfoliant. If you're looking for some all-natural, high quality, zero waste skincare, you need to read my official Kypris Beauty review below!
