Packing for College: Slay with Sustainable Decor and Eucalan-Washed Threads

August 23, 2023

Alright, eco-warriors and rookie laundry-doers... It's time to pack up for college! The journey into higher education isn’t just about cramming for exams and late-night pizza runs – it's about gaining independence, making new friends, and embarking on a path of self-discovery. Oh and mastering the art of laundry (who knew, right?).

We are here to help you make a trendy, but eco-conscious packing list for college, as well as gear up for your entry into the laundry-verse.

Merging Trendiness with Mother Earth

Soon-to-be dorm room designers - it's time to transform that tiny space into a trendy, eco-conscious haven! Here's how we're gonna do it. 🌱✨

  1. Eco-Wall Art: Hunt down some upcycled or thrifted frames to house prints from local artists or perhaps your own masterpieces. Surf Pinterest for clever DIYs to add personality to your wall hangings.
  2. Green Thumb Decor: Indoor plants are a must! Not only do they purify the air, but they also add a refreshing touch of nature. Succulents and snake plants are low-maintenance options that scream chic. Plus, they're perfect roommates—quiet and oh-so-stylish.

  3. Sustainable Bedding: Dive into sheets and duvets made from organic cotton or bamboo. They're soft, sustainable, and absolutely dreamy. And to jazz up that bed? Go for upcycled or handmade throw pillows—perhaps ones with boho designs or recycled fabric patches.

  4. Thrifted Treasures: Scour local thrift shops or online marketplaces for pre-loved furniture and decor pieces. An old ladder can be a trendy bookshelf, and a vintage trunk might just be your new coffee table. With a touch of creativity, these finds can add character without hurting your wallet or the planet.

  5. Eco-Storage: Ditch the plastic bins and opt for woven baskets or fabric storage cubes. They're functional, stylish, and way more sustainable. Plus, they add a touch of texture and warmth to your space.

  6. DIY & Upcycled Pieces: Got an old mirror? Give it a fresh coat of eco-friendly paint. Turn old jeans into a wall organizer or use mason jars as pen holders. The idea is to reuse, redesign, and rock your unique style!

As you set up your college sanctuary, remember: sustainable can be sensational. Here's to a dorm that dazzles and reduces your carbon footprint, one chic choice at a time! 🌟🍃

Mastering the Laundry Quest in College

Ok laundry time: First things first, scout out your campus's laundry facilities. From there, follow these tips to get you started:

  1. Not all machines are created equal, so read the instructions carefully before starting a load.
  2. To avoid overcrowded laundry rooms, consider doing your laundry during off-peak times like early mornings or late nights.
  3. Stay organized by sorting your laundry beforehand, dividing lights from darks, and delicate items from heavier garments.
  4. Keep a small bag or mesh sack for your undergarments and delicate items, as this will help them last longer and prevent them from getting tangled or lost.
  5. Always check the pockets of your garments before washing – you'd be surprised at the number of students who inadvertently wash their student IDs, cash, or earbuds!

Remember - Adventurers, with every laundry misadventure, there's a lesson learned. Soon enough, you'll be the Gandalf of garment care. 🧙‍♂️
