Our minimalist bathroom

Oct 5, 2017 | 0 comments

/ Although I have previously published both a video and another post both with my thoughts about avoiding plastics and what environmentally friendly products I can not live without in the bathroom, I think it’s super important to talk openly about the journey it is , trying to live more sustainable. You will face challenges because our society is not there yet, where it is “normal”, for example, to buy 100% natural products or products that doesn’t come in plastic containers plastic. But if you don’t look after yourself, you end up isolating yourself and stress yourself out on this journey. And that’s far from what we want when approaching this lifestyle!

Selvom jeg før har udgivet både en video og et andet indlæg både med mine tanker om, at undgå plastik produkter og hvilke miljøvenlige produkter jeg ikke kan leve uden på badeværelset, så synes jeg det er super vigtigt, at tale åbent om den rejse det er, at forsøge at leve mere bæredygtigt. Man løber ind i udfordringer konstant, fordi vores samfund bare ikke er dér endnu, hvor det er “normalt” fx at købe 100% naturlige produkter eller produkter der ikke er pakket ind i alverdens plastik. Hvis man ikke passer på sig selv, så ender man med at isolere sig og blive stresset. Og det er jo langt fra meningen, med denne livsstil!

/ To start out with it was more about minimizing my consumption and only keeping the things that really worked for me. After that I slowly began to replace conventional products with more eco-friendly ones, as I emptied what I already had. As you will also see in the video at the bottom of the post, it will not happen over one night to change your habits. And in addition, it takes a long time to explore new brands and products, and find out what works for you. I take small steps at a time, but have nevertheless come a long way in the process. So far, I’ll soon be ready to look at our consumption habits in the kitchen and scullery too. We spend quite some time in the bathroom and therefore I have tried to make it cozy out there. I like green plants, scented candles and wooden decor which compliments our large open bathroom quite well. It just becomes more cozy that way! Anyway, if you want a look inside our bathroom and hear a little more about where I am in this process, watch the video in the bottom of this post!

I første omgang handlede det for mig om, a skære ind til benet og minimere mit forbrug. Efter det er jeg så langsomt gået over til, at lægge vægt på renere produkter når jeg har skullet skifte noget ud. Som I også vil se i videoen nederst i indlægget, så sker det ikke over én nat, at man får ændret sine vaner. Og desuden tager det jo lang tid, at udforske nye brands og produkter, og finde ud af, hvad der fungerer for én selv. Jeg tager et lille skridt af gangen, men er alligevel kommet ret langt i processen. Så langt at jeg snart føler mig klar til, at kigge på vores forbrugsvaner i køkkenet og bryggerset. Vi bruger en del tid på badeværelset, og derfor har jeg forsøgt at gøre det hyggeligt derude. Jeg kan godt lide grønne planter, duftlys og træ hvilket komplimenterer vores store åbne badeværelse ret godt. Det bliver lidt mere hyggeligt på den måde! Anyway, hvis I vil have et kig indenfor på vores badeværelse og høre lidt mere om hvor jeg er i denne proces, så se med nederst i indlægget!
