Wow I tried to google Tushy and all I got was sites about anal porn popping up... I didn’t know what tushy meant

I would never reuse a towel to wipe my butt after doing my business but if you use a bidet you are just drying it after it’s clean, which is the same as if you dry it after shower.
Michaela Mew (5 months ago)
I don't think that bag that the laundry pods are in is recyclable. Generally non stretch plastic bags are not recyclable.

Love this video a lot!! Amazing tips & now I know a few things I can be way more conscious of! Thank you again!

Women n the 18th century got periods 30-50 times through ought their ENTIRE life.... Were never going to make it to that point due to gmos, ect,...
Emily Meier (8 months ago)
Allie couldn’t that have been because of malnutrition? I’ve never seen research that links gmos to menstruation especially since GMOs were only widely introduced into people’s diets in the 90s

Regarding the bidet, aren't you using a bunch of water instead? And how are you sure that your butt is clean? This is interesting but idk

Ruth Lee (11 months ago)
I am totally with you about the clothes, substantial amount is the operating word here. A lot of minimalist I've come across on youtube advocate on having very few clothes (and some are not even the high quality ones), not considering needing to wash them more often than needed, the water it consumes and the toll it takes on fabrics from constants rubbing together in the washer. Thanks for pointing that out!
WanderRealm (11 months ago)
Actually it's cleaner to use to a bidet. Every time I visit Egypt I go toilet paperless and I actually feel cleaner 😊
PotOfTeaMulan (11 months ago)
you can already modify yourself to not have your period anymore, if you feel so inclined, there are several ways to achieve that actually. regardless of that tacky basic joke the video was quite informative, good luck on your zero waste journey

+Inês Margato aw! I love Portugal! Wish I could visit more often! 💖
Kristy Lorson (1 year ago)
I'm a little confused - the first zero waste swap you talk about in this video is laundry detergent in plastic packaging? Or is the packaging compostable? By the way, if you're using reusable pads, it's not much of a leap to cloth toilet wipes :).

Hi! First of all I wanted to thank you and tell you that you're immensely helpful! I wanted to ask you if you know Apivita, the Greek brand. It's eco-friendly, vegan, and more beautiful stuff. Today I'm going to buy a few of their products, and thought that you might know a bit more about them since you live in Greece. :) Thanks for your time and recommendations. Xx

What's weird with using a bidet??? Here in Italy it's mandatory and I can't believe people find it weird to wash their butt after they poop or use a towel afterwards... like, you'll wash that towel, and you're using it to wipe a clean butt, it won't be dirty!!!
lovesawesome (1 year ago)
how is that laundry detergent zero waste? o.o it comes in plastic.
Charo Perlacia (1 year ago)
when it comes to the cup you might have some accidents at first but nothing to be superworried about, I mean if the cup is not placed properly you will feel it, after 2 or 3 months at most ou will be a pro at put it in but if you need to have some protecion for your peace of mind you can make your own pantiliner with toilet paper and tape haha yes, you just change it everytime you go to the bathroom and you will feel good and secure
Gabrielle Hamel (1 year ago)
I love that you are on this journey and doing your part to be more environmentally friendly! That being said, please contemplate switching your laundry detergent once again. The pods you are using are wrapped in plastic, which will break down and lead to micro plastic particles being let into our water supplies. Please contemplate looking into using the totally plastic free & toxic free laundry detergent from Simply Co. It works so well and is even more environmentally friendly!! Cheers!

OhYeaLindseyYea (1 year ago)
Was anyone else disturbed by her comment about females being genetically modified to not have PERIODS??? Yeah it's inconvenient, but it's human nature. We can't bear children without menstruating. I watched this video because I respect her lifestyle and I'm trying to learn more but to me that comment takes away from her credibility a bit.
desiree2086 (1 year ago)
I don't think it's ment to be taken so seriously. The idea of living without periods is just great for many women, but we know that will never happen.

I started using Dr. Watkins laundry detergent recently and it's great! Works on my stinky workout clothes and heavy towels too! I also add a couple drops of peppermint oil to the load ;) The soap comes in a cardboard box, yay! https://www.jrwatkins.com/home-care.aspx?facet=%7B656D7585-E83B-41E5-AE45-2A844CC59BE1%7D

Hey Kristen I Love Love Love your Channel !!! Since 6 months I am only purchasing thrifted clothing and I will never go back to fast fashion but I am on a rlly low budget and I need New underwear and socks,I think thrifting is not the best idea here 😂😂 I looked up some fair brands but the stuff is just tooo expensive . Would be nice if you had some tips Love from Germany 🌻🌻❤️❤️

Solarpunk Artist (1 year ago)
Absolutely love you and your channel! (: Try buying more eco unbleached toilet paper with recycled packaging if you can't swap to cloth. Check out Lauren Singer and Bea Johnson if you haven't already. Some other easy swaps for anyone & some that can save you money in the long run: silicone cooking sheets instead of parchment paper, stainless steel/bamboo straws, tea towels/'shower cap' cloth food covers/vegan wrappa reusable replacement for plastic wrap and ziplocs (you can also make you're own out of cotton fabric & wax), a tea infuser instead of tea bags, french press, (if you already own a keurig they have reusable keurig cups), a pre-owned water flosser or metal dental pick (possibly vegan silk floss, not sure about it), a bamboo toothbrush, cotton rounds for makeup removal, etc. And as always try to make at home or buy secondhand! (:

Hi Kristen! I just discovered your channel and I love what you are doing here. You are a beautiful woman and it is incredible that you make these great statements and rise important issues spreading awareness instead of doing another cliche beauty channel. Keep it up, girl! Greetings from Russia! p.s. (been to Greece, loved it!)
lilly bunny (1 year ago)
Hey, don't sweat it, but Meluna tests their silicone on animals. In the furture, cruelty free menstrual cups include the ruby cup, the diva cup, the juju cup, the lunette cup, the femmecup, the mooncup, and the organicup! Also, I highly reccomend cloth pads! Some of my favorite Etsy makers are HomeSewnDelights, Lingonvecka cloth pads, county cloth creations, and mimi's dreams, and yurtcraft. Novel Red has their own site, and although they're a bit pricier, the quality is definitely there.
Abby Faery (1 year ago)
I know it was sponsored but you should try to make your own laundry soap, its super simple with just a couple ingredients that you can buy in bulk that lasts for a long time, but it might not be so natural, just a thought :) loved the video
Rachel (1 year ago)
Hey Kristen, you should try soap nuts as laundry detergent! I have never tried them myself but that's what most "zero wasters" use to wash their clothes! They're completely natural, compostable, etc. check them out :)
Lilly (6 months ago)
Soap nuts come from India, and people there have been using them for generations. The issue is that there's now a higher demand for them in western countries, so people in India can't afford them anymore and resort to using harmful detergents instead. When they wash their clothes in rivers and natural bodies of water, the chemicals from these detergents enter the ecosystem directly and cause a lot of harm :(
Lauren Fry (8 months ago)
Rachel Yes they're brilliant. Apparently horse chestnuts can be used too. (There are tutorials on this). I use only cold water and turn off the machine before the rinse cycle (and skip to spin) so that I use half the amount of water.
Kristen Leo (1 year ago)
+Rachel Haven't heard great reviews about them 😅 most of my laundry is workout clothes and I don't think the soap nuts would cut it 😜
Marie Bach (1 year ago)
Butt... (hehe) don't you dry your underparts with a towel when you get out of the shower? Wouldn't that be the same? Also, NOT ordering stuff online is even better than stuff being shipped in eco friendly packaging. Of course, sometimes it cant ve avoided but I honestly rather go to the store and pay more than order stuff on Amazon.
Marie Bach (1 year ago)
Kristen Leo that's true and it's what I meant by "can't be avoided" :) what's your opinion on vegetable saving boxes? In Germany there is this new start up company that "saves" vegetables that aren't sold in shops because they are a bit wonky etc. You can order a box full of stuff and it's delivered to your house. So far, I don't do it because they and the cooperating farms are situated in the south while I live in the west. I'm skeptical whether I would be doing any good by ordering things from 700km away instead of buying my veggies on the farmers market.
Kristen Leo (1 year ago)
+Marie Bach I don't live in an area where I have access to natural and vegan cleaning products, makeup etc. and whatever options exist are largely imported and I know a looot of other people watching my videos are in the same situation, so ordering online I think is better than supporting toxic or unethical brands 😉

I also changed detergent in home and cleaning products for some nature friendly products and my daughter is coughing less , I guess those allergies were from chemicals they were giving her a cough. Also I like your washing strategy , I also use it I gather alot of clothes and then wash them. I use vinegar mixed with water for floors and soda for sinks n bath tub it really cleans n does not leave ugly smelly chemical behind.
alissa patterson (1 year ago)
love your channel. you are beautiful. the laundry detergent is not zero waste. the bag that contains the laundry detergent is plastic and non-recyclable.
Kristen Leo (1 year ago)
+alissa patterson it says it's recyclable right on the package 😉
S (1 year ago)
Great video! But why do you not want to use a towel to wipe your butt after it has already been sprayed clean? Don't you do that when you get out of the shower?
bhavsplate (1 year ago)
Ahaha sometimes I feel guilty for not being a minimalist when it comes to fashion but I also justify having a lot of clothes by thinking I'm #environmentallyfriendly by only doing laundry in giant loads and being able to do it bc I have enough clothes to last a while without laundry 😂😂

Meg Harte (1 year ago)
So this is just "zero waste" products you got sponsored to promote? Say upfront its sponsored if you're getting a kickback. In some countries you have to legally declare it. If you're in a large city then water from your washing machine or toilet goes to municipal water treatment before anything ends up in the environment. Engineers and scientists, together with planners ensure that the water that exits your house doesn't harm the environment. So long as you aren't on a septic system or depositing directly to the environment, you waste water is not harming the environment.
Meg Harte (1 year ago)
Hi Kirsten. I didn't realise you lived in a small town. Apologies. I still do feel that getting things for free is sponsorship. They are providing products to you in exchange for promotion and the links in your description. I appreciate that they are products you believe in, but i still feel it should be said upfront. It doesn't feel nice to get halfway through a video and realise is a kind of advertisement. I really like your channel content though, just a bit more transparency would enhance the viewer experience even more.
Kristen Leo (1 year ago)
+Meg Harte I received some of these products for free but this isn't a sponsored video. When any of my videos are sponsored I always say it in the video and description box. Every product that I promote on my channel (sponsored or not) is because I genuinely support the brand and the product. 💖 But the only way for youtubers to make a living is either through sponsorships or crowdfunding like patreon. I don't feel comfortable taking money from my audience or making videos for a select few so I work hard to be able to collaborate with conscious brands with ethics I align with. Without sponsorships my videos would not be possible. 😉 Also I do not live in a large city and there is no municipal water treatment in my area and same applies for almost every city other than Athens here in Greece unfortunately. So keeping water clean is very important here.

Πολύ ωραίο βίντεο, σε παρακολουθώ από καιρό και έχουν πολύ ενδιαφέρον τα βίντεο σου. Θα ήθελα να σε ρωτήσω, σχετικά με το depop, με τι τρόπο στέλνεις τις παραγγελίες που σου κάνουν; Ξεκίνησα πρόσφατα να το χρησιμοποιώ και δεν ξέρω τι τιμές μεταφορικών να βάλω σε ο,τι πουλάω. Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ προκαταβολικά :)

You can make your own laundry detergent as well! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AW75w_FWVUVS6GSsl8K_QCuusOeQyP9QYerjFzoXTbf_GZLTmMBcqjs/ Also washing soda is just dried baking soda.
jess watts (1 year ago)
Question: is the plastic packaging that the laundry detergent comes in recyclable? It looks like material that wouldn't recycle. Just wondering is all. I live in England and recently discovered Ecover and the great thing is that I also found a local whole food shop which I can refill the bottles and it's cheaper to do that as well, win win. Also love the tushy thing, I was in A small village in Nepal for 2 months and never used loo paper and just a bucket of water and jug, you just get used to it! Love you video btw :)

I don't think I could use a menstrual cup............... I just don't want any blood or nasty shit in my sink. That's where my clean hands and my mouth cleaning stuff goes. And once in a while, everyone drops their toothbrush in there. I don't want to ever drop my toothbrush and then know "now there's PERIOD BLOOD GERMS ON THIS". Maybe that's just me, I'm kind of a germaphobe.
Meow Glab (1 year ago)
Camila De la Hoz I guess so. Still just grosses me out a bit.
Camila De la Hoz (1 year ago)
Meow Glab don't worry, blood is not nasty at all. You have worst bacteria in your mouth than in your blood. You should be more worried about your cup touching your sink...

Steph P. (1 year ago)
does cleancult ship internationally (Germany)?
As a 0 waste beginner, the first thing I did was get reusable straws for this big 30 oz cup I have. I carry it around with me or bring the straws when I go out to eat so I'm not wasting a random straw or constantly throwing cups away. Also, I get my facial moisturiser in these small tubs, and when I finish the product I clean the tub and put coconut oil mixed with shea butter in it for my haircare, because my jar of coconut oil is running low and my gross man hands don't fit in the jar.
C Stefan (1 year ago)
Being a coastal resident straws were one of the first things to go for me...I see them in the water and at the beach all the time...super not cool for our manatees, porpoise or whales. If you want to see a great doc on how our waste is actually showing up in our environment almost unnoticeably "Inside the Garbage of the World" explains very well without great bias.

I have been using my mooncup for over half a year now and I like it, I'm glad I reduced the amount of trash that I make with this, and I'm saving money. There are even no leaks anymore, after a few in the begining when I was still learning to use it. Every woman should switch to this :)
Roxie Whitmire (1 year ago)
I'm genuinely confused and curious.... What about deforestation vs wasting clean water? Using tp isn't great for the environment, but isn't it a waste of water for it to be used in a bidet? Trying to reduce waste can be so confusing.

Kristen Leo oh I had no idea. I definitely want to research on how tp is manufactured now. Thanks girl

I had accidentally stumbled upon your video and wanted to say congratulations....good sensible living lessons presented in an captivating and thoughtful manner. This is a great next step and there are many more aspects of ones daily routines that could be returned to clean honest living such as our dish soap, bathing oils and shampoos that not only effect our bodies yet our environment as you have wonderfully explained. Please continue to search out products and share as you are a natural at embracing an audience's attention. I am confident you will keep making an impact by changing the world for the better one little change at a time that's all we as a human could ever hope for. Thank you...you are appreciated

For those who make coffee at home: replace your paper coffee filters with a reusable metal one
Adding on, if you have a Keurig, get normal coffee with a small reusable K cup (at Bed Bath & Beyond I think). They're plastic but it's a one-time buy and no more paper filters if you prefer bagged coffee! And some brands that make K-cup coffee have recyclable pods

Why does laundry detergent has to be gluten free?? xD however, gave it a like ^^ But one question: how can a BD be more ecofriendly than e.g. recycled toilet paper? I know the whole recycling process is very energy-intensive but if your toilet isn't running with rain water you are wasting so much tap water.... or is it still more efficient compared to the water used during toilet paper production? (to lazy to calulate ^^)
Marie Bach (1 year ago)
Denise Fellmeth the problem is mainly in the cleaning of the water. Toilet paper dissolves very finely into the water and it's the same water that you drink from the tap so it has to be very clear. I once did an internship at my local provider of water etc and there I learned that cleaning the water of toiletpaper is just as difficult as getting out the particles of excrements.

I love how these websites do not back up their claims with direct references to the originl sources where they take their data from :( not sure how to feel about this. Also I always heard that celiac disease is shows its symptoms only by consumption of gluten containing foods. Never heard about symptoms caused by dermal exposure...

Oh and for the gluten free question I think people with celiac disease and extreme sensitivity or allergy to gluten always need to check before purchasing a product if it's gf or not, having it on the label saves them from the hassle of having to contact the brand and ask.

the Tushy website has all the info on that ;) Also this article has some helpful numbers on how much water is saved from using a BD instead of toilet paper https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/earth-talks-bidets/
