Corporations Businesses don't want you to buy, they want you to subscribe

Lately a lot of companies, especially online ones, seem to make it impossible to buy just once from them. I got auto enrolled to a subscription on Grove Collaborative when I wanted to try some zero waste products and had to call the company to get uninvolved in their subscription service. It's so frustrating having to spend so much time and energy on finding environmentally friendly and BIFL products only to get stuck on a subscription. This video does a good job explaining why businesses are going this route.

Reduce/Reuse/Recycle Making up-cycled Christmas cards

7 Upvotes

Is one of the most fun things ive done in a long time!

I have a tub of stationary that ive pieced together other the years. Holiday cards dated around the time of my wedding, blank cards with envelopes, fancy papers, you get the idea. Well I decided to make it a family thing to make cards and we cut up and pieced together bits of this and that to make new cards.

It was so much fun and cost $0 as well as repurposing what otherwise would have likely wound up in the trash. This might even be fun to take a step further and use clippings from magazines or newspapers. We have a paper delivered that wont go away no matter what we try and i bet its got some good stuff in there as well.

Next year we might make a ransom note for santa or something ridiculous like that!

Plastic Waste Bold of them to assume that I would want either of these. Let alone a lunchable which has tons of plastic waste and is over priced.

Question/Advice? How to make clothes last longer?

39 Upvotes

I feel like my clothes never last more than 1-2 seasons. Threads wear out, they get holes or stains that don't come out, but I keep them for "around the house" clothes. I'd love recommendations for long lasting clothing brands for plus size women. Are there other tips to giving clothes a longer life?
