Hi there!

Growing up, we didn’t have a lot materially. Wasting food or throwing clothes away just because we didn’t like wearing them wasn’t an option. But I would be lying if I said I’ve always lived a zero-free lifestyle. I still don’t.

I discovered the zero-waste lifestyle a few years ago and haven’t looked back. My personal experiences are fundamental to how I’m choosing to help our planet by reducing my carbon footprint. However, I wanted to do more.

The No Trace Story

No Trace isn’t about achieving the so-called perfect zero-waste lifestyle. No Trace is about giving back to the planet by inspiring you to conserve the earth's natural resources and reduce waste, toxicity, consumption, and packaging while making conscious decisions about using only plastic-free products. We only have one planet; let's take care of it!

I started No Trace to: 

  • Make it easier for my community to reduce our plastic and wasted material

  • Help inform others about alternative home and personal products with safer ingredients that benefit our health, wellness, and the environment

  • Ensure that the products and materials offered are ethically made and sourced

 

Thorough research has helped me to understand that my good intentions of donating clothing and household objects are insufficient. When unused, these items still end up in a landfill somewhere in the world. That’s why it’s essential to search for ways to create something new from discarded materials by repairing, refurbishing, or repurposing them.

 

After learning about the negative impact my choices have on the environment, I made conscientious decisions to use reusable bags when shopping, take my old sheets and towels to local animal shelters, stop using paper towels, and clean with eco-friendly products. 

Give it a try! You will soon realize that living sustainably and reducing waste is possible.

 

Sincerely,

Gayla
