Alexis is a genius in her own right, she one day decided to seek a plastic free life which has embarked her on a long (and difficult) journey since. Now her and Josephine (from Rogue Gone Vogue) have amounted over 700,000 views on Youtube on their various Zero Waste tips. What an incredible way to spread the message! I was lucky enough to get to know Alexis and write guest posts on each others websites. You can check mine out right here.
When you’re at the beginning of any habit, things can seem like an uphill battle that you’ll never overcome. When I first decided to go plastic free, I remember spending an afternoon on a rainy day holed up with my computer and researching everything I possibly could. Each new suggestion for alternatives excited me and slightly freaked me out. Most of that afternoon was spent yelling at my computer: “I didn’t even know that even HAD plastic in it!!!” The next few months were all about experimenting, failing, perfecting, and getting more and more obsessed. For me, I loved diving in the deep end and doing it imperfectly until I got closer to where I wanted to be.
