BE A MAXIMAL MIN­I­MAL­IST

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty, Mind & Body -

Is a “zero-waste in­dul­gence” an oxy­moron? Katelin Le­blond and Tara Smith-Arns­dorf, the Vic­to­ria-based duo be­hind pare­down­home.com, don’t think so. The zero-waste ac­tivists want to inspire Cana­di­ans to cut down on con­ve­nience goods and garbage by fo­cus­ing on good-forthe- en­vi­ron­ment essentials like pack­age- free or­ganic cot­ton sheets and wooden hang­ers as well as nat­u­ral-in­gre­di­ent house­hold clean­ers and groom­ing prod­ucts. Smith-Arns­dorf’s favourite go-to zero-waste goody is Nezza Nat­u­ral es­sen­tial-oil bath bombs. “It is one of those items I would never have thought to pur­chase for my­self prior to liv­ing zero waste,” says Smith-Arns­dorf. “Now it’s a spe­cial treat, just for me to en­joy.”
