What is your favorite zero waste tip(s)?
Re-purpose and re-imagine materials that would be otherwise discarded. My favorite is to disassemble thrifted wool sweaters with holes or stains. I unravel the pieces and use the yarn to knit new garments.

What is your most treasured possession?
I have this Swedish sewing portfolio from the 40’s or 50’s that my partner found at an antique store. It contains sewn samples of sewing techniques with (Swedish) explanations like flat-fell seams and bound buttonholes… it also has some examples of what not to do. It’s sentimental for me because it’s a link to my Swedish mother, who created the space for me to sew as a child, and it contains samples so similar to the ones I did in school but from a different era.

Who are your favorite writers?
For the past years I’ve been into reading teen fantasy and sci-fi. I missed out on this in my teens and have been catching up! I’m currently reading the Pern series by Anne McCaffrey. I also love Tamora Pierce’s Protector of the Small Quartet.

What is your favorite zero waste tip(s)?
The FREE BOX! We have a free box at work which contains anything from one-off first fit samples, to fabric remnants, to odds and ends brought in by staff. I was referencing this the other day and a friend remarked that I really was a “greener” meaning a graduate of the Evergreen State College. In the 90’s the Coop in Olympia had the most amazing free box (I hope still does). I found so many treasures there –and had a place to pass things to new owners. My room-mate actually started a business pulling and re-working clothing entirely from the free box. Free boxes bypass the whole buying/selling thing and encourage you to pass things along –with the knowledge someone else may find a treasure!

If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
Oh, DEFINITELY a housecat. You get to sleep all day, no responsibilities, and someone feeds you whenever you want.

What is your favorite zero waste tip(s)?
Learn some basic repair skills. Whether it’s sewing or home repairs, just knowing how to fix something rather than buying a new one really makes a difference. And it makes you feel more connected to the things you own when you see a little something of yourself in them.

What is your most treasured possession?
My pup, Tim! He’s a longhaired Chihuahua, he’s 6, and he’s my best friend.

I spend the little free time I have watching fashion shows or looking at runway photos. My favorite designers are Issey Miyake and Ann Demeulemeester. 😉

If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
Prince! I love their free spirit, style, and musical talent (I have zero musical genes haha).

What is your favorite zero waste tip(s)?
I love using fabric I find at thrift stores to make clothing, instead of using new fabric. I also love to use unconventional items to make garments; for example, I made a raincoat out of a clear shower curtain I found at goodwill!

What is your favorite zero waste tip(s)?
Vintage toasters not only make perfect toast in the most elegant manner, but they can also be repaired to last a life time.  A Sunbeam T20 is my second most treasured possession.

What is your favorite zero waste tip(s)?
Love a bulk store and a co-op for refillable products. Public Goods and Services in West Seattle is right by my house and I just bring all my vessels and go refill all my bath soaps, deodorant, dish soap without any additional packaging or waste. They even have reusable makeup remover pads! I also am a big fan of composting, menstrual cups, the multi-use handkerchief, and recycling water to feed my plants.
