Less Waste Is A Bright Idea & Small Steps Take Us From The Idea To The Doing

Heads up! pen&thimble shops will be closed February & March for a much-needed winter vacation and a major shop restock. See you in April!

Are you looking for a judgement-free zone to help you get started on the journey to reduce waste in your home? Maybe you are looking for tools to help you go deeper into your waste-free lifestyle? This is your place! This is pen&thimble.

Maybe you want to finally stop using paper towels? We did that and it was hard! Let’s chat about it! Maybe you want to finally make a habit to stop coming home from the grocery store with plastic bags? We did that too! And I’ve got some reusable produce bags if you need them! Maybe you just want to switch to cloth napkins for school lunches? I’ve got tons of those!

Let’s reduce our waste together.

We use our own products too! Every single day!
