Gulkana Glacier

•••Over the weekend we had the opportunity to hike up the Gulkana Glacier in Alaska! 🏔 It was such a beautiful experience that I feel lucky to have had and I also gained some much needed knowledge about glaciers and the effects climate change has had on the glaciers in Alaska Climate change effects are increasing apparent here in Fairbanks, Alaska, more so than other places, partly because it has such drastic temperature differences. It can get up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as -60!! Ive talked with many of the locals over the past several weeks and they’ve informed me that last winter was one of the warmest they’ve experienced. It only got down to about -40 for a day or so, and while that may seem very cold for the other states, it’s not the coldest it gets in Fairbanks This summer had some record breaking heat waves for longer and longer stretches. Just a few days ago, it was in the 70’s which is pretty uncommon for September. • according to to our guide, the glaciers are receding further and further back. - I remember telling everyone back home how hot it has been here in Alaska, and many were in disbelief. I hope to keep learning and share with all of you 🏔

✂Scissor sharpening 😆 - We have lots of blunt scissors around the house and it's very tempting to buy a new pair....BUT new scissors are just going to get blunt over time too (and usually come in ridiculous plastic packaging). - I'm using a knife sharpener which works brilliantly 🙌 - I've tried the alfoil trick for sharpening , and not only does it NOT work, it makes it hard to recycle the foil! - Trying to live low or zero waste for us means limiting the things we buy and making the most of what we have. - Have you got some simple hacks that help your items last longer? - - kitchen

@recontained_la (@get_repost) ・・・ STOP WASHING YOUR CLOTHES. Ok. Now that we have your attention. Yes - certain items like undies need to be washed after every wear, but the habit of throwing every item into your hamper after you've worn it might be more wasteful than you think! 31% of people do their laundry EVERY DAY. A standard washing machine uses 41 gallons of water per load! HE machines use closer to 28 gallons per load... but that's still a lot of water! Think about if the item actually seems dirty, or if it could go for another wear. Hang an item outside your shower to steam out if it needs to be frreshed up a touch. Try spot cleaning for small stains. Just make sure to check the fabric type so you know how to treat correctly. The vast majority of your clothes can be washed in cold water, which saves energy & will extend the life of your clothes. ❄️ . 📸 @ecoage . . . wellnessbeauty kitchen via
