Zero Waste Chocolate Chip Cookies


Zero Waste Chocolate Chip Cookies

No one can resist these delicious chocolate chip cookies. Every time I make them, they go so fast. Sometimes, my dad and I will eat one right off the cookie tray while it's still hot...that's when they're at their most melt worthy. And I seriously have no regrets (though my tongue might - cause like I said, they're HOT at that point.). But perhaps the best part of all? These cookies are zero waste! I know how wasteful things can get in the kitchen, no matter how good the intentions. That's why I've crafted this recipe with a zero waste spin. While it's not vegan, you could easily veganize it (the only two things in it preventing it from being vegan are literally the butter and the egg, and there are tons of vegan substitutes out there for both). Here's how to make these zero waste chocolate chip cookies. You'll have your whole family drooling over these, trust me!

Zero Waste Christmas Ornaments


Zero Waste Christmas Ornaments

Have you ever tried making your own zero waste Christmas ornaments? They're a lot of fun to make, and they produce little to no waste! Or, at least, the waste they produce can be composted. If you're looking to have a zero waste Christmas or holiday season, you're likely to have a Christmas tree. But Christmas decorations can get a little wasteful. If you walk around shopping malls and spot Christmas decor, you'll likely find TONS of plastic ornaments and tree decorations. The worst part? So many people purchase ornaments and decorations they'll use only once. Just once. Isn't that insane? It's also incredibly wasteful. Instead, how about we choose some plastic free, DIY ornaments instead? These ornaments are cheap, easy to make (with a little patience), and you'll likely have the ingredients to make them already on hand. Also - fun fact - all of them are compostable at the end of their life. In fact, most of them are made from food items. So cool, right? And that only adds to their charm, in my book. Though, if you wanted to store these for another Christmas, you probably could (if done carefully enough). If not, no worries - you just toss it into the compost bin and next year you make more. Definitely beats buying a bunch of new ornaments and sending them to landfill after one use. Without further ado, here's how to make some amazing, zero waste ornaments.
