Using homemade household cleaners and upcycling materials you already have is a great way to practice “zero waste” in your homestead. Many cleaning products and equipment on the market are not only toxic, but their production and throw-away nature harm the planet and benefit the wallets of multi-national conglomerates. Here are some recipes for natural cleaners and ideas on how to reduce your waste, while ensuring all of your dollars support quality and ethical standards in manufacturing.
About the Author
- Christine Traini
I'm a mid-twenties, vegetarian barefoot mountain mama running a mini-homestead in the Southern Appalachians. I brew beer, practice yoga, study fungi, grow food, and pet cats. My dream is to retire by age 40 and run a homestead in the mountains. I save money aggressively through anti-consumerism, frugality, self-provisioning, and mindfulness. The Barefoot Budget is a lifestyle blog chronicling my adventures in homesteading.
