The war on plastic is a cause very near and dear to my โ™ฅ๏ธand Iโ€™m committed to make my ๐Ÿ  a plastic free one, however here is my main concern, how to make the transition sustainable if plastic free products are difficult to find AND they are Generally more expensive? Whilst I find the answer the strategy is to replace each single use plastic item by a plastic free one once we have fully used its content and avoid any food wrapped in plastic or plastic bags. Today was the turn for dental floss and a female hygiene product, doing some research Iโ€™ve found 2 very promising providers #georganics and #organicup both 100% plastic free and with minimal packaging. If you know of any other products plastic free and with minimal packaging let me know in the comments below๐Ÿ‘‡ โ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŒ #waronplastic #bbcwaronplastic #plasticfreejuly #fortheloveoftheplanet #plasticfree #libredeplastico #nomasplastico #nomoreplastic

So with the idea in mind of being more sustainable and also fulfilling a long held idea, we took the train from Napoli to Sicily. ๐ŸŒฑ Itโ€™s one of the few trains to go on a boat and got to say it was a beautiful way to see the changing landscape versus flying into an airport ๐ŸŒฑ Highly easy to do, comfortable and doing a bit for the planet . . . #gretathunberginspiration #travellingbytrainisfun #traintosicily #sustainabletravelling #tryingtodomybitfortheplanet #fortheloveoftheplanet

Scientists are developing endlessly recyclable plastic. The new material is called polydiketoenamine, or PDK. PDKโ€™s innovation is its ability to preserve the durability of plastics post-recycling โ€œwithout any deterioration in qualityโ€. We canโ€™t help but feel a little mixed by the news. Arenโ€™t the durability and infrequent recycling of plastics what brought us here in the first place? How do you feel about this? โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #fortheloveoftheplanet #biodegradableproducts #sustainabilitymatters #sustainabilityinstyle #noplanetb #sciencenews #ELI5 #helpmehelpyou #materialscience #technologynews #innovationlab #innovationhub #ecotech #ecoinnovation #plasticwaste @our.planet.our.home

๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ In my last year of primary school (was only last year but seems like a life time ago ๐Ÿ˜), I was an Earth Smart Leader. I learnt a lot about our environment, the impact we have on it and action we can take to make a difference. We only have one planet and we all have to do our bit to ensure its survival, and ours! ๐Ÿ . When establishing Full.Out Body, it was very important to me that our raw materials were all natural, high quality and ethically sourced, and that our packaging was reusable or recyclable โ™ป๏ธ . Sourcing the raw materials has been pretty easy. We have some incredible small local businesses on the #sunshinecoast that have done all the hard work for me. Iโ€™ll give them a shout out later on! However, packaging has been a challenge โ€“ especially for a small batch business like mine. Large minimum quantities and high pricing are issues Iโ€™ve had to tackle. Anyway, so far, I think I am doing ok though the pricing is still an issue ๐Ÿค” . Full.Out Body lip balms and lips scrubs are packaged in reusable aluminium tins which I source from a body care company in Sydney. Once you have used all your delicious lip balm or scrub you can reuse the tins to store little bits and pieces, for craft projects or travel size lotion containers. They are also recyclable ๐Ÿ’ฏ . Our new bath soak and body scrub range {released soon} will be packaged in @detpak i am eco ๐Ÿƒ brown paper window bags. These little beauties are 100% biodegradable and recyclable. The bags are also compostable however you must remove the little tin tie first. The bags are lined with Bioplastic (PLA) so my customers can see the product, it also makes the bag grease proof. What is PLA? PLA is a natural starch derived from plants like corn and sugarcane that is made into a clear plastic-like film. Iโ€™m thinking once empty, these little bags could be reused to raise seedlings โ€“ what do you think? ๐ŸŒฑ . . #fulloutbody #earthsmart #green #caringfortheplanet #iameco #reducereuserecycle #reducewaste #ecofriendly #environmentallyfriendly #reusable #biodegradable #compostable #recyclable #packaging #bioplastic #natural #fortheloveoftheplanet #foreveryone #bodycare #lipcare #bathsoak #footsoak #bathsalts #relax

E V E R Y D A Y I S E A R T H D A Y For the love of the planet. For the love of humanity. For the love of life. How will you change your habits from this day forward to contribute to climate change drawdown? Some everyday ideas: Refuse plastic. Reduce fuel consumption. Respect the water supply. Turn off the tap when brushing teeth. Reuse clothing by upcycling into something new, instead of throwing pieces away. And choose, ethical, mindful designers like AMURโ€”A Mindful Use of Resources. And did you know that the number one way to positively impact climate change drawdown is to reduce (or ideally, eliminate) consumption of animal products? Yup... itโ€™s even more impactful than reducing fuel consumption. #earthday #everydayisearthday #climatechange #refusereducerecyle #govegan #plantbased #fortheloveoftheplanet #emergencyonplanetearth #liveyourbestlife

I spy with my little eye. A SHIT LOAD OF TRASH. It's so overwhelming. This is a creek that runs across the street from my house. I have explored down here many times and...well...it's trashed.... I managed to get a measly bag of trash collected at the park. Not to easy to do with a 1 year old ๐Ÿ™ƒ. **Check out my stories it's all within a straight ten minute walk to the park. It's such an issue with hardly any attention to it around here. **How can we accept living like this. The bulk of the trash is of course plastic, the bulk of that plastic are bottle caps, bottles (mostly alcoholic), nips, wrappers (fast food and blunt) and scratch tickets (not plastic). **I think the trash left behind says a lot about the condition of the community. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ #litter #litterbug #trash #plasticpollution #urbandecay #springfieldma #creek #water #park #urbanliving #urbangardening #veganliving #cleanup #planetorplastic #takeaction #timetocleanuphumanity #wehavealotofworktodo #globalissues #communityissues #fortheloveofourchildren #fortheloveoftheplanet #naturedeficitdisorder

I am all for this @konmari.co craze. I don't think anyone could love tidying and organizing more than me except @mariekondo herself. My mom @wasylkevych was the one who taught me how to stay organized. There was never anything out of place or unnecessary in our house (although she might beg to differ ๐Ÿ˜‰). About twice a year, we'd all clean out our closets and go through all of our belongings, separating out clothes and things we no longer wore or wanted. We'd put everything into garbage bags and donate it all to organizations like Goodwill or Purple Heart. My mom taught us that if we're not using something, there is someone out there who would love to have what we have. So don't let it just take up space, let's give it to someone who could really use it. This process indirectly taught me about respect for my personal space. Keeping things tidy and organized helps keep my mind peaceful and organized. More importantly, I think this practice taught me to pay closer attention to what I buy, the things I think I "need", and purchasing quality over quantity. โ € โ € How does this relate to textile waste? As the @konmari.co craze continues to spread, I hope people start to understand how buying unnecessary things (and cheaply made things) not only drains our wallets but drains our earth's resources. Did you know that only 10% of the clothes we donate actually get sold in a local thrift store?! The rest usually ends up in landfills. Now that our houses are #tidy and filled only with things that #sparkjoy , let's continue to explore how our buying decisions affect the world around us ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒŽ ๐ŸŒ.โ € โ € โ € #tidyingup #tidyup #tidyingupwithmariekondo #konmari #konmarimethod #organize #stayorganized #joy #peacefulmind #fortheloveoftheplanet #waste #textilewaste #buyless #choosebetter #buylesschoosewell #lessismore #qualityoverquantity #qualitygoods #makeitlast #sustainableliving #sustainablefashion #consciousliving #motherearth #savetheplanet #reducewaste #recyclingisnotenough #climatechange

Based on the emails we send, the music we stream and the Google docs we edit. The good news is that many major internet companies are becoming more energy conscious, and choosing more renewable sources of power for data centres and operations.

In addition to tending to and further enhancing my own garden/natural playground/outdoor classroom/wildlife habitat, I am planning a crowdfunding campaign through @inourbackyards to turn a vacant lot here in Springfield into a wonderful community green space. While sharing with you here on Instagram, I will finally be keeping a blog to write about projects, sustainability, and various cultural and educational material.

I recently read this quote from @fromhighabove in an article from @pinkbike and it couldnโ€™t have struck a more serious note with me. โ€œCheap $*it is everywhereโ€, and itโ€™s wreaking havoc on everything from our closets to our planet. I personally, canโ€™t afford to buy cheap things anymore, nor do I want to. Iโ€™m focusing on quality over quantity from my own personal buying decisions to everything that weโ€™re making at WorkWear. It just makes sense to me to buy one perfect, high quality tee shirt than buy three cheap ones that will fall apart after four washings. When we buy cheap, we have to spend more money replacing those cheap things when they fail. This brings up two really interesting topics that I hope to explore as WorkWear evolves.โ € โ € 1. A high-quality product for a reasonable cost: My goal is to make clothes that reflect quality in all of their aspects. From proper pattern making that leads to a fantastic fit to responsibly sourced materials and ethical production that keeps the health of the planet and itโ€™s people in mind, Iโ€™m striving to make quality clothes available to the average person.โ € โ € 2. Cheap things have ruined our planet: from cheap clothes to cheap food these two industries are in the top rankings for the most polluting industries in the world considering everything from greenhouse gas emission to water pollution. There are so many connections between fashion and food, and Iโ€™m itching to dive into this topic even more.โ € So, stay tuned as WorkWear evolves to find out more about how weโ€™re focused on ditching the cheap and in it for the long haul. Yep! That's one of our tees!โ € โ € #qualityoverquantity #quality #sustainable #ecofriendly #fortheplanet #sustainablefashion #ecofriendlyfashion #fortheloveoftheplanet #reducereuserecycle #sustainableliving #foodforthought #sustainableclothing #motherearth #savemotherearth #globalwarming #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #pollutionsucks #saveourseas #cleanwater #cleanwaterforall #triplebottomline #bcorp #bcorporation #coloradostartup #colorado #denver #boulder #basictee #tshirt

Why is organic cotton production important to the long-term health of people and the planet? Here are a few reasons to switch to certified organic cotton products (swabs, cotton balls, rounds) & feminine hygiene from Organyc USA. Did you know: In the U.S., cotton ranks in third place in terms of pesticide use after only corn and soybeans. More than 38 million pounds of pesticides were used on cotton in 2014. Global cotton production releases 220 million metric tons of carbon dioxide a year. It takes more than 2,700 liters of water to make one conventional cotton t-shirt, and almost 11,000 to make a pair of jeans. #organiccotton #pesticidefree #earthfriendly #nontoxic #femininehygiene #fortheloveoftheplanet

I've been slowly surrounding myself with animals for that happy, peaceful life. Recently, it's become more and more apparent to me that, I'm not happy with the way things are. I feel so wasteful on days when I do nothing, so dissatisfied with all things. The meaningless tasks, soulless conversations, the repetitive routines... so, I've took some advice. The above. During my free time, I'm going to dedicate it to helping the animals even more. By being right there with them. Volunteering my time, any relevant skills to help rescued animals thrive. They take me away from the mundane duties and make me feel alive. I get to be in the countryside, I get to feel apart of something. I become a better person because of them. It feeds my soul with so much love and joy and they get another pair of helping hands for their own individual journeys. I'm feeling so reflective after being away from social media more and more and finding out, who is actually there at the end of the day too. I want that life. No mobiles, good books, rolling fields, talented music ringing in my ears, a joyful home, happy animals and peace. Less is so much more. #vegan #veganblog #countryside #countrylife #perspective #reflective #emotional #life #dream #fortheloveofanimals #fortheloveoftheplanet #lessismore #blog #thoughts #theoldways #nature #simplelife

โ€œListen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forestโ€”thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.โ€ โ€• Beau Taplin By: @therainboweatery . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #beatplasticpollution #ecorootslife #noplanetb #rethinkplanetearth #rethinkearth #thinkgreen #thinkeco #protectourplanet #sustainableliving #lowimpactmovement #thinkvegan #consciousconsumer #sustainability #bethechange #ourplanetourhome #greenmatters #fortheloveoftheplanet #rethinkrefeel #minfulliving #changefeelings #nature #forests #respectearth #respectplanetearth #respecttheplanet #inspiredbynature #fortheplanet #thinkzerowaste #organics #zerowasteliving

"We depend on nature not only for our physical survival. we also need nature to show us the way home, the way out of the prison of our minds. We got lost in doing, thinking, remembering, anticipating; lost in a maze of complexity and a world of problems. We have forgotten what rocks, plants and animals still know. We have forgotten how to be โ€“ to be still, to be ourselves, to be where life is: here and now.โ€ - Eckhart Tolle Illustration: @thisplantbasedlife . . . . . . . . . . . . . #beatplasticpollution #ecorootslife #noplanetb #rethinkplanetearth #rethinkearth #thinkgreen #thinkeco #protectourplanet #sustainableliving #lowimpactmovement #thinkvegan #consciousconsumer #sustainability #bethechange #ourplanetourhome #greenmatters #fortheloveoftheplanet #rethinkrefeel #changethinkings #changefeelings #nature #forests #respectearth #respectplanetearth #respecttheplanet #inspiredbynature #fortheplanet #thinkzerowaste #organics #zerowasteliving

โ€œWhen human beings lose their connection to nature, to heaven and earth, then they do not know how to nurture their environment or how to rule their world - which is saying the same thing. Human beings destroy their ecology at the same time that they destroy each other. From that perspective, healing our society goes hand in hand with healing our personal, elemental connection with the phenomenal world.โ€ Chรถgyam Trungpa, Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior Illustration: @styngvi ๐ŸŒโค๏ธ๐ŸŒ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #beatplasticpollution #ecorootslife #noplanetb #rethinkplanetearth #rethinkearth #thinkgreen #thinkeco #protectourplanet #sustainableliving #lowimpactmovement #thinkvegan #consciousconsumer #sustainability #bethechange #ourplanetourhome #greenmatters #fortheloveoftheplanet #rethinkrefeel #changethinkings #changefeelings #nature #forests #respectearth #respectplanetearth #respecttheplanet #inspiredbynature #fortheplanet #thinkzerowaste #organics #zerowasteliving

Why is organic cotton production important to the long-term health of people and the planet? Here are a few reasons to switch to certified organic cotton products (swabs, cotton balls, rounds) & feminine hygiene from Organyc USA: ๐ŸŒฑSwitching to organic cotton production could reduce the global warming impact of cotton production overall by 46% compared to non-organic cotton. ๐ŸŒฑSuch a switch to organic cotton production would reduce the consumption of fresh water by over 90% and energy use by over 60%. By contrast, cotton production using non-organic practices could release 300 million metric tons (MT) of carbon dioxide by 2020. ๐ŸŒฑOrganic cotton produced in 2013/14 saved the equivalent of nearly 95,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools of fresh water compared to non-organic production. ๐ŸŒฑThe energy saved in that period could have kept a 60-watt light bulb going for over 57,000 years. ๐ŸŒฑThe reduction in greenhouse gas emissions was the equivalent of driving a car around the world over 14,000 times. #organiccotton #pesticidefree #earthfriendly #nontoxic #femininehygiene #fortheloveoftheplanet
