Hi! my name is Marta and I love minimal, zero waste, simple living. 

My zero waste journey started with soap making: for me, it was the first step to take control on the waste I was producing as well as what I was putting on my skin. 

I truly think that zero waste living is actually simple if you follow the right steps: just like soap making!
