I am so excited to share the next couple of posts with you. My first official collaboration, and my first series of videos (yikes!) with Stephie Mizzi from The Green Bootcamps, who is also a big believer of the fact that if each one of us made little lifestyle changes, collectively we can make a big difference! Yes, WE CAN!
She reached out to me after publishing my last post about simple eco-living tips pointing out that I missed a really simple eco-hack: making your own cosmetics and toiletries. Truth be told, I am lazy and I always thought that to make your own cosmetics and toiletries is a hassle; maybe you’re also thinking ‘I have no time for this,’ right? Well, I was wrong.
Steph has shared her experience and recipes and tips on making quick, simple and organic homemade cosmetics and toiletries.
Since I have made a commitment on taking my eco-journey a step further, this came at a perfect time. With these recipes in hand, I am sharing my own experience with you as I make them myself for the first time.
I’m using recycled bottles from shampoos, juices and other items that I found lying around my mum’s house! Apart from the huge amounts of plastic waste you reduce by making your own in re-usable packaging, these recipes are actually really amazing on the skin. You can also purchase these lovely re-useable glass dispensers here.
WANT TO TRY THEM OUT FOR YOURSELF? I promise, they are super easy and quick and your skin would thank you for it too!

About Stephie Mizzi:
After working in advertising for several years, Stephie chose to give up her life in London to set up The Green Bootcamps – residential bootcamps that focus on teaching clients how to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
Her aim is to reduce her impact on the planet in order to create a more sustainable future. She grows as much of her own vegetables herself, shops at local farmer’s markets, tries to eliminate all single-use plastic from her day-to-day life, primarily by shopping at zero-packaging food shops and makes many things herself: from toothpaste, face scrubs, body washes and moisturisers to household cleaning sprays. You can check out her website www.thegreenbootcamps.com or follow her on Instagram @thegreenbootcamps for daily tips and hacks.
