Giving gifts should be fun and thoughtful and environmentally friendly gesture of love and friendship. But somehow it turned into heavy consumerism, pollution and stress. Here is how you can make some gifts at home and keep your holidays sustainable and creative.

Ladies, there are options, green options available for us now. From menstrual cups, reusable pads, period panties, sea sponge tampons. If you just made a Naaaah. face, or even Eeeww! I don´t blame you, I was not convinced the first time I heard about them either. But hopefully, you will continue reading and give this or some other alternative a try.

My way of showing you that we all fail sometimes. Hope they make you feel a little bit better, give you some hope and a push to give it a try. Going zero waste doesn´t happen over night. It takes time and a lot of researching, especially if you don´t live in a city and your options are limited. It´s about trying your best. It´s about producing less waste. Every plastic that we avoid buying matters.

Wellcome to new series, dedicated to amazing, strong, creative and successful women. There have so many girl bosses on my list, from clothing designers, furniture designers, artists, company owners, photographers,... you get my point. They inspire, they amaze and they rule. Today I present you an amazing designer and apparel creator Tjaša Križnar or PIRATE PIŠKA.
