I’m ending 2020 with a round-up of Green Slice of Life’s most popular posts of 2020.
Where to start? 2020 was a year that many of us would like to put behind us and even forget. However, there were still lots of remarkable things that happened this past year.
New family members were added, nephews got engaged, couples still got married amidst the pandemic.
Here at Green Slice of Life, the blog celebrated its first year anniversary sometime in November. With everything around us going crazy, I realize I never celebrated this milestone.
Even the blogging world has had its own sets of ups and downs. Pinterest has been temperamental for content creators, and most recently, the good ol’ Google Gods decided to change their algorithm, reaching havoc on our “search” results.
Well, no matter what type of storm we are experiencing, we seem to be weathering it OK.
As promised, here is a list of Green Slice of Life’s most popular posts of 2020:
I didn’t realize how popular Norwex really was until I wrote this post. I’m guessing a lot of information out there is created by people who sell Norwex and potential buyers would rather hear the opinion of someone who’s not profiting from a sale. This post is so popular, it made its way to the first page on Google when you search for “Is Norwex Worth it?”
I do still love my Norwex products, even though I know they are made with microfibre. Some of the Norwex products I own such as clothes and mop heads are made with a recycled microfibre that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. I talk more about the issues with microfibre in that particular post: Is Norwex work it?
Sometimes, the best posts come when you are least inspired. Looking for something to write, I thought I’d come up with a list of things I stopped buying to reduce my footprint.
It was a simple post, but who knew you’d all be curious about what I stopped buying? And to top it all off, it’s 23 things I don’t even miss.
This post was actually written in 2019, but it got very popular in 2020. It got found and shared on Pinterest a lot.
I’ve made lots of beeswax food wraps for myself, for gifts and even sold some extras to family and friends to recoup the cost of supplies. They are such a great alternative to plastic wraps.
Now that I’m learning to sew I might take a hand to making a few more items such as bowl covers and snack bags with zippers.
Taking my family on a plastic-free journey has been quite an experiment full of ups and downs. In this popular post on managing change, I talk about some strategies that might help with some sticky points when navigating your family through this process.
Last week, I also gave an update on how we are doing with our Plastic-Free experiment. Read about it on “Update On-Going Plastic-Free“.
So, that’s sums up Green Slice of Life’s Top 5 most popular posts of 2020. I want to take this opportunity, my dear readers, to wish you all the best in 2021. Stay healthy.
