This is part two of my five part eco friendly series. I've made a list of my "back to school" essentials (which also double for eco friendly work place essentials) that can help the eliminate waste and help planet!
I especially like the eco friendly lunch swaps! I know I'm not in school anymore, but being a vegan on the go these options help me always remain eco friendly and stay fueled on the go! Bringing your own lunch is healthy, and impacts the environment in such a positive way! You can eliminate an a great deal of one time use plastic by bringing your own utensils, bringing your own containers, and using reusable sandwich bags.
This is so easy, and incredibly tasty! Just be prepared to have a ridiculous amount of salt on hand. You’ll need to cover the carrots completely, and this requires a load of salt!! A tip from me is to use LARGE carrots. If your carrots are too small you’ll not be able to peel them easily at the end. I’ve attempted this with both coconut oil and olive oil. Both work, but as you’ll see in the video (Please excuse the camera quality! My vlogging days had just begun), the coconut oil will somewhat solidify while marinating.
