Waste free lifestyle, what does it look like?
#11
I think the whole concept of wiping your butt is not just wasteful but unsanitary, primitive and disgusting, cloth no better than paper.

A good bum gun is the only way to go, bidet I s'pose for any Euros here, and salt water's just fine for most.

I'll have to agree. I've converted over to the bidet years ago and wouldn't want to go back

Do they make those for a 5gal bucket?

I'm sure people in that situation are more than capable of improvising such a solution if they wish.

With all the tons of TP littering up remote tourist spots all around the world, that would be a welcome improvement.

Several folks in my backpacking crew use a variation this portable bidet instead of TP...

Just don't press the wrong button when you stumble into the bathroom after a long night of drinking or you might get a big surprise.

I'm aspiring towards living a low/no waste lifestyle.  I haven't transitioned to nomadic living quite yet and I'm also curious if there are any low/no waster nomads on this forum.  It seems like it might be extra challenging to do low/no waste on the road.  Currently I'm trying to swap out wasteful habits for low waste habits slowly.  Over the past year I've done the following things-

-Started using reusable shopping/produce bags
-Started making my own toothpaste, facial cleanser, and moisturizers 
-Swapped my plastic toothbrush for a biodegradable bamboo one (with plastic free, biodegradable packaging!)
-Swapped disposable fem hygiene products for a diva cup and thinx undies
-Swapped plastic disposable razors for a stainless steel safety razor 
-(mostly) Cut out convenience and frozen food packaged in plastic and switched to a more raw/whole foods/vegetarian based diet (I make my own frozen/convenience dinners now by meal prepping)
-Minimized my personal shopping habits and only started buying things that I absolutely needed
-Thrift whenever possible for items I need
-Started making homemade dogfood for my canine companion instead of using the prepackaged stuff
-Bring my own waterbottle & coffee cup to cafes
-Started using stainless steel straws
-Swapped a kureg coffemaker for a pour over (chemix) with reusable filter

I'm looking forward to making more changes in the future!  Smile

I hope you got a chuckle out of it.

I thought it was well played.  And well done overall.
