Finally redesigned and rebuilt my compost sifter. No more sliding off the wheelbarrow, no more stopping to empty; non-decomposed matter slides through the “chute” and directly into a bucket. … #compost #composting #gardening #landscaping

It’s a wrap on the spring/summer garden season! Did lots of clean up this weekend and put all my pots and seed starter plastics in storage. Fall bed is doing well: lettuces are already being harvested from, peas are doing well, and broccoli is doing well. Tomato alley is almost completely cleared out...letting some stay on the vine to possibly finish ripening. Shallow tilled all the ground and heavily seeded it with cover crop to add some green manure and revitalize the soil for next season. Going to be lots of work next spring implementing all the new plans in the works! I will be completely changing everything and growing much more...

I volunteered at the ‘Face your Waste’ stand at the Royal Show yesterday! I love talking to people about the impact we are having on this planet and ways we can lessen the impact through refusing, reducing, reusing, repurposing and recycling. It was fantastic to engage with so many people genuinely interested on how they can make a difference❤️. So if you are at the show, be sure to check out the Face your Waste stand, and they have a free filtered water refilling station too😊 #greenwiseskips #faceyourwaste #royalshow #royalshow2018 #refusereducereuserecycle #ditchtheplastic #plasticbagban #reusablecoffeecup #ewastedisposal #hazardouswastedisposal #composting #wormfarms #perthskipbinhire #perthskipbins

Taking my compostibles to a nearby community garden... My neighbourhood here in London (Wandsworth) doesn't do compost collection, so I have to spend money and time travelling to the nearest community garden to deposit it in their giant composters. But it's super worth it! I am glad 2 buckets full of biodegradable material will feed some worms and not emit greenhouse gases into the atmosphere contributing to climate change. This may not seem to be a #plasticfree issue, but it tackles the same problem: taking care of your trash, thinking about where it goes and what happens to it in a week, a year, a decade, a century. Out of sight shouldn't be out of mind. P.S.: Thanks to Doddington and Rollo Community garden for letting me compost! 😘 #composting #compost #communitygarden #doddingtonandrollo #trash #plasticfree #plasticfreemillennial

Monday Maths! You lucky fans. Have you ever wondered what a circular economy is? Have or haven't, here is your big chance to find out. Swipe. So it just means that the way something is made and disposed of, goes back to be used again. More and more businesses are getting involved in making better products that create less pollution in the way they are made or the way they are disposed. A great example of circular economy in action is the recent colllaboration of Sendle Couriers and Better Packaging Co to create compostable courier bags. Link in bio or here: http://bit.ly/EkkoSendleBPC If you are feeling like a snooze at work today, this definition from Wikipedia will help you understand circular and also get to sleep: A circular economy is a regenerative system in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimized by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops; this can be achieved through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, re-manufacturing, refurbishing, recycling, and upcycling. @sendle @betterpackagingco #courier #packagingdesign #ecofriendly #sustainableliving #corn #limestone #bag #bags #bagsforsale #courierservice #biodegradable #compost #composting #smycle #ekko.world

I’ve bought this brush from @packagefreeshop because I felt like I was using a gross sponge to wash my dishes 🙈 this beautiful, compostable brush is everything! It cleans so well and the heads can be easily replaced.

you’ve all been waiting for it... we finally have a compost bin outside the hive site!! (27th and Speedway). • For all of those who live in an apartment or just don’t have the space for it, you can still help divert waste from the landfills by collecting food scraps! (food waste is the worst since landfills don’t give food enough oxygen or space to decompose properly, so it produces methane gas) • Collect your tea leaves, fruit peels, egg shells, plant clippings, vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and paper towels in a paper bag in your freezer! (Avoid putting dairy, meat, or bread in it) Then drop it off here when it fills up. • Let us know if you have any questions!

I love a real life tangible book. I can’t help it. My mom’s a librarian. But there are some easy ways to enjoy cracking open a fresh read without buying first hand. Most of my babies come from thrift stores. I’m always worried about bugs, since they love reading as much as I do, but here’s what you do: put your books in a bag or a cloth in the freezer for 48 hours. Anything in there will be killed off by the cold (sorry little buddies) and you can enjoy your reads without critter anxiety! If second hand isn’t for you, make sure you use your public library! They’re the masters of Zero Waste reading, and they’re in danger of constant de-funding, so go for a visit. There’s a special magic in a library ❤️

Beanstalk growing out of our apartment compost bin, climbing up an antenna. Unintentional urban gardening. . . . In early August my parents gave me some green beans from their garden. I have no idea how a seed ended up in the compost since I barely had to trim the green beans before cooking. Fast forward and I’ve got at least 15 green beans that are almost ready! Also can we talk about composting for a second? I’ve tried many different approaches and this year I decided not to put any citrus in. It ended up making all the difference! There’s black gold in there I tell ya — not to be confused with night soil.

Over watering can be a major problem with Cannabis plants, which can cause plants to lose vigour and vitality. In this photo the grower had oversaturated the growing medium, causing the plant to suffer with a water logged root zone. #bluedoor #agriculture #soil #soilscience #composting #notill #organicgrown #pesticidefree #worms #guano #organiccomposttea #chemicalfree #cannabis #cannabisindustry #gardenculturemagazine #stoneytark #420 # #thc #cbd #healthylife #envir #growyourown #cannabishistory #marijuana #hashashin #california #canada #unitedkingdom #australia

Keeping plants low down when heavily training, is a great way to establish a strong structure of side branches early on. For those growers who work with limited space, Fluxing is an excellent method to incorporate.

Great workshop today, and everybody was worm composting already at home which made me very happy and hopeful for a worm farming revolution! Worms will eat anything that was alive, or anything that passes through a living being, and they love to hang out in the hessian. Creating comfortable habitats will make for a happy squirm of worms, treat them now and again :) #wormlovers #wormfarming #composting #urbancomposting #remakingearth #feedtheworms #feedthecity #worms #foodsecurity #peaksoil #organicistheanswer #onlyorganic

We are spending the day outside! Teaching my children the importance of gardening has really helped foster a love of the outdoors and fresh produce for my kids. This morning our plan is to move our compost into the garden beds! Get the kids involved in all you do.. They will not simply learn, but embrace what you’re teaching them. -Elizabeth

Naturally male plants will begin to flower earlier than female seeded Cannabis plants. The reason is to induce pollenation earlier than later, allowing the window for seeds to ripen is as high as possible.

Thanks to @nillumbikcouncilvic for encouraging me to start my own worm farm and reducing my environmental impact by subsidising my unit from @thecompostrevolution it has another 2 levels I can add. I think my worms went to bed happy tonight with an abundance of carrots, Brussel sprouts and Bok Choy. They’ll find their home in the garden tomorrow in a shady spot out of reach of my little tornado. Onion, citrus & garden waste will be the only items in my green bin moving forward. #thecompostrevolution #compostrevolution #wormfarm #wormfarmerinthemaking #reducingmyfootprint #composting #green #worms #happyworms #veganworms

. Spent a lovely morning with my daughter in Balmoral this morning. When we were leaving the beach I remembered @take3forthesea ‘s simple mantra: “take three pieces of plastic with you when you leave the beach, and you’re making a difference.” Sad thing was, there was a rubbish bin less than 10 meters away 🤷🏻‍♀️

As you would expect we produce a lot of coffee grounds. A few of our customers take it away for their composting. However, much of our coffee grounds still ends up being taken away as food waste. If you are a keen gardener and have use for it, we are more than happy to give it to you for free. Pop in anytime and see what we have. Alternatively, call ahead to let us know when you’ll be in and we’ll save it up. #rdguk #myrdg #kennetisland #fidgetandbob #coffeegrounds #composting

On Sundays, we compost 🌱 So fortunate to have a community garden nearby that we can take our food scraps too. Living in a townhouse with no garden doesn’t leave us many options at home. One easy way to reduce our waste sent to landfill 👍🏼 @burnleybackyard

We’ve been spending time recently spreading our apple compost. The apples have mulched down perfectly to form a rich natural fertiliser that is a great source of nitrogen for the soil. Plus, our two little helpers have been spreading their own nitrogen rich fertiliser!

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.” It was wonderful to start a new vege garden again this weekend (we have started many because we have moved so often) I can’t wait to see how this garden provides for us for many years to come! It is such a magical space overlooking our stream too 😍 #diggingover #weeding #composting #planting #tiredbody #happyheart #ilovegardening #happyplace

It was time to let these smelly beauties go. I purcashed one, and decided that I would need one for bigger items such as papaya peels, watermelon peels etc. that would take time (more than two weeks) in the bokashi bin. Do you know that you wait two weeks after you fill your bokashi bin before you can dump it in the normal compost? Or bury them in your backyard? Makes sense since you can put cooked/ prepared food and some bread it in, to make sure it doesn’t disturb all the process. 🌳☀️🌿 🌏 I met two amazing men burying the compost and let me dump it straight in that smoky pile. It wasn’t gross at all, it was amazing and beautiful. They know my language, familiar witb my country and we had a chat about random things about Philippines, recycling, compost etc. it was short and it was a lovely afternoon. I thank them for the job they volunteer on doing, they thanked me on bringing all the goods. What are we, really, without these men and women? What is this world going to be if no one wants to do the hard work? 🌳 🌏 Also, that’s my hot cocoa and cinnamon rolls 😝I always bring food and drink whether it’s a 2-minute trip or hours. 🌏 #lowwastekitchenmovement #lowwastekitchen #bokashi #composting #bokashicomposting #zerowaste #zerowastekitchen #biome @biomestores

Even though the #TNplasticban is just gaining momentum, some places have maintained the sanctity of our traditional zero waste ways all along. . This temple I visited with my mother was serving prasadam on Thaiyal ilai (leaf plate/ patravali) that is typically a Sal or Banyan leaf. They also had panagam (a sweet drink) served in steel tumblers. Overall, the temple had very little plastic in sight. . Leaf plates have been an everyday element of food packaging and serving, across India for centuries. Each region uses different types of leaves and slightly different design, stitching together the leaves with twigs to form a plate or bowl. The more common version today is the moulded leaf bowl (thonnai), which is considered fairly convenient to carry due to it's sturdiness. . But in this case, the temple clearly braves criticism and uses the leaf in it's true form, even though it might be to cause of discomfort and spillage. This is probably because the whole leaf is cheaper than the stitched ones (less labour). But in a time when businesses and other entities make compromises purely for convenience of their patrons, this is truly a strong move to bring back tradition.🍂🍁🌿 . Temples (and other religious centres) should ideally set an example for a zero waste lifestyle, that doesn't harm the earth or any living being. No faith preaches the kind of pain and suffering that plastic causes to innocent creatures. Very soon, I'll be sharing more info about temples and communities that are now leading major change, with composting, waste segregation and also waste reduction. I'm also happy to say that I'm part of this change, thanks to a very active organization in my city with a bustling presence in my neighborhood. 🙌🙏 #nammaooru . #leadingchange #settingexamples #leafbowl #leafplate #indigenous #noplasticneeded #plastickills #quitplastic #wastefree #wastefreeliving #convenience #planetoverplastic #zerowastecommunity #zerowaste #temple #greentemple #community #composting #makingchanges #bethechange #bepollutionfree #consciousconsumer #consciousliving #zerowastechennai #zerowasteindia #sustainableindia #greenerbytheday
