from used coffee grounds, using 3 simple ingredients. I’m an avid coffee lover. I love it even more when I discovered various ways to repurpose used coffee ground, such as making coffee art, fertilizer, and beauty products like soap or body scrub. Coffee has high antioxidant, and it’s beneficial for our skin. Before you tossContinue reading “Recipe: DIY Coffee Scrub”
nutrients to Earth. When we rot or make compost from organic waste such as veggie scraps, fruit peels, dry leaves, used coffee grounds, tea leaves, hair, nails, and paper, they break down naturally and return as nutrient-rich soil that grows our food. The wonderful circular design of Mother Nature. In Malaysia, I am mostly outContinue reading “Rot and Return”
before recycling. Repair was the norm during my mother’s generation. We would bring our electrical appliances, be it a walkman, a radio, a fan, a TV, a VHS player, to a repairman around the neighborhood if they stopped working. For clothing, my mother would hand sew loose buttons, mend holes and they are good toContinue reading “Repair, Re-gift, Repurpose”
Repair, Re-gift, Repurpose before you jump into the Recycle bandwagon. I was introduced to the term ‘Recycling’ during Temasek Polytechnic days by a good friend when I was about to throw away a snack packaging. Ever since that introduction, I became somewhat a hoarder, a trash collector, a recycler, and an up-cycler, trying to saveContinue reading “Consider these 3Rs before Recycling!”
The joy of reusing is never-ending! If I had to buy something that’s pre-packed from a supermarket, I would get the ones packed in glass.

These glass containers, jars, bottles, come in handy when I refill products atContinue reading “Over and over and over and over and over…”
I used to be a shopaholic, a hoarder, and a collector. Had a walk-in wardrobe filled with clothes but nothing to wear. Now, I have less but all of what I need. ‘If less is more, maybe nothing is everything.‘ ~ Rem Koolhaas Before, having more stuff made me felt somewhat important, accomplished, successful. Now,Continue reading “Reduce”
If there’s only room for 3R in your life, make it Refuse, Refuse, Refuse! Refuse – My favorite R! When you practice Refuse all the time, you would have eliminated 50% of waste coming into your life. Really effective! Moreover, ‘No’ is a complete sentence. You do not need to give any explanation as toContinue reading “‘No’ is a complete sentence.”
The most important R of all. I believe everything starts from the head. A thought triggers a feeling which leads to action and result. Good thought leads to a good result and vice versa. Control your mind, which in turn, controls your result. Therefore, it’s really important to set your mind right, align with goodContinue reading “Rethink”
It all began with 3Rs, then 5Rs, 6Rs, now 10Rs, and more! I am a collector by nature. Since I’ve stopped buying and accumulating stuff in general, I might as well start gathering these Rs that have shown up in my zero waste journey somewhere, like this blog. When you decided to remove an addictionContinue reading “What the R?!”
Our buy and throw away culture is contributing a lot of trash and stress to our only Planet home. Results? We can see our everyday waste polluting the air, land, and sea. The same air we breathe from, the land we grow our food from, and water we drink from. These waste (including plastic debris,Continue reading “How to be Zero Waste? Why should I care?”
