Simply Living Well by Julia Watkins
Simply Living Well is a beautiful and timely motivational guide to living well sustainably and reducing our footprint for the generations to come. Author Julia Watkins shares rituals, recipes, and projects for living simply and sustainably at home. For every area of your household – kitchen, cleaning, wellness, bath, and garden – Julia shows you how to eliminate wasteful packaging, harmful ingredients, and disposable items. Practical checklists outline easy swaps (instead of disposable sponges, opt for biodegradable sponges or Swedish dishcloths; choose a bamboo toothbrush over a plastic one) and sustainable upgrades for common household tools and products. Projects include scrap apple cider vinegar, wool dryer balls, kitchen bowl covers and cloth produce bags, non-toxic dryer sheets, all-purpose citrus cleaner, herbal tinctures and balms, and more, plus recipes for package-free essentials like homemade nut milk, hummus, ketchup, salad dressings, and veggie stock.
