What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

Thank you to everyone who has sent emails and left comments with suggestions for my wedding. I have had so many great ideas come my way. The tipping point of kindness came last night, when someone offered me their wedding dress. So. Kind.

I wish I had more giveaways on the blog...but it's kinda hard to do when I so rarely buy anything new myself.

Instead, I want to ask what I can do for you this year? What would YOU like to see more of on the blog? How can this space improve? What don't you like?

Ultimately, I want to be as helpful as I can be, when I blog and share. I have posts coming up about life without bulk food stores and other blogs posts around those obstacles. But I want to make sure what I am sharing here serves you.
So tell me in the comments below or shoot me an email (hello[at]therogueginger.com), with any thoughts or suggestions.

  1. I'd be interested in reading more articles on the links between zero waste living and minimalism as I find both topics go hand in hand..
    I'm still very new in my plastic free journey and at this stage I'm not sure how extreme I am willing to go, but I have managed to go plastic bag free in my household using bokashi bins..and I'm working on removing all plastic tupperwear from my house, but my biggest issue has been the issue of storage containers. Metal containers are limiting in that you can't use them in the microwave. Glass canning jars look nice, but are a pain to clean and also cannot be microwaved/baked due to their shape and the metal banding around them (I have not invested in mason jars for the same reason that they are awkward to clean for me). I have tried and tried to find plastic free containers that are microwave and oven safe but also transportable and it just seems like there are no options for this... Biome sell glass bottom containers with metal lids - which are highly expensive at around $45-50 per container. The closest thing I could come up with are the Decor Match ups containers which are glass bottomed but with plastic lids and an airtight seal (not 100% plastic free), but I thought I could at least bake with the glass bottom and then add the containers when refrigerating/transporting them but sadly post purchase ($60 later for four of the containers) I found out that despite being made of glass, the additives used in the glass to keep it bright and clear using, mean that the glass is not suitable for the oven. Damnit..

    1. Thanks for the suggestion. I do have some words to say about the two lifestyles. With regards to your glass wear issue, have you check second hand stores? Or asking friends/family if they have any spare glass wear?

  2. Because I am new to your blog, you may have dealt with this in a previous blog post that I haven't read yet, so sorry if I'm treading old ground. I got a parcel yesterday. The box was recyclable, but the bubble wrap in it wasn't. It made me wonder how you order things online, or even if you do. Connected to that, I'm interested more broadly in how your choice to live zero waste has changed your life. I think it's possible to control what happens with you in your own home, but it's the interacting with the rest of the world that seems more the challenge. Like with the parcel - I didn't think about what they would use as packaging, and if I had, I wonder if they would have agreed to at least use packing materials that can be recycled, if I had asked them to. Those kinds of interactions and experiences would be helpful to hear about.

    1. Good question. I don't order much online, instead, I like to see if I can get it local. If not, then I will ask the seller to use something other than bubble wrap and that works 99% of the time. I actually had my first piece of bubble wrap lined envelope come in the mail recently and I found a use for it pretty quickly. I will expand on that in a post soon.
