About this time last year I desired to DIY some self-care and cleaning items. My mindset was it would allow me to save some $ while also help me ensure it was a low-waste item.
Naturally this was before I had two children remote learning, opened a low-waste shop, and got additional responsibilities at my job.
Trust me — I still desire to DIY, but I also realize that it’s okay if I don’t. It’s okay if I get my items from a maker/company that has dedicated time to ensure the product works and is made with natural/sustainable ingredients. It is okay that the time I would use making has been redirected towards research and tasks for the business OR even to time for me to rest.
We have to remember that sustainable living is a progress; AND that one won’t be criticized if they don’t DIY their items.
