Two Years of Project Pan

I started doing Project Pan around the same time that I started this blog, not because I started the blog, but because I moved, pretty far, twice in three months and was seriously disturbed by how much space all of my products took up in my move. And how many products I had that I … Continue reading Two Years of Project Pan

December Empties: The End

Okay, that's a bit dramatic, but this is the last monthly empties post. I do have to say that it is already feeling very freeing to not have to keep my empty containers. I just clean them out and dispose of them according to my municipality's recycling instructions. It feels weird that it feels so … Continue reading December Empties: The End

September Empties

If I have noticed anything writing these posts it's that I follow a cycle, extreme waste reduction to hyperconsumption to feeling guilty about spending so much on beauty products and consuming so much plastic packaging, to not buying anything and then it starts again. And I am definitely in a not buying anything phase, even … Continue reading September Empties

October Empties

When I picked up my empties box today I thought it must be packed full because it was so heavy. It was decently full, but I think that most of the weight came from the couple empty glass containers that were in it rather than a great abundance of used up product.

This is probably a product of my no-buy month, but I felt like I used a lot up this month and I definitely need to do a skincare order/shop very soon. I'm going to get more into … Continue reading August Empties

July Empties

Some of it makes sense, a few things I have been using since last November and some were purchases I had to make because I haven't yet got used to having to be prepared and planning ahead to avoid using plastic/packaged products. This is a great … Continue reading July Empties

June Empties

I am feeling slightly derailed as my blog post schedule is being impacted by my real life. We were supposed to be moving back into the office today, but then there was a government announcement that it was still recommended that non-essential employees still work from home until September 7. I have very mixed feelings … Continue reading June Empties

April Empties

Compared to March it looks like I didn't use anything up this month! Mostly, I just finished up some samples that I have had for several months. The nice thing about a Project Pan is that you actually do use those random things that you have accumulated over your years of purchasing. I do see … Continue reading April Empties
