Over 100 jurisdictions around the world have implemented SUP laws that either ban or put a surcharge on SUP items. SUP bans and surcharges have both been proven to be an incredibly effective mechanism to reduce single-use bag consumption (60-90% reduction). In fact, a recent City of Edmonton report concluded: “cities who have advanced restrictions, bans or fees associated with materials such as straws, plastic bags, styrofoam or disposable cups are achieving significant results from these initiatives.” If you are interested in signing the online petition on single-use plastics, or emailing your city councillor and letting them know that you support a bylaw on single-use plastics, please visit https://wastefree.ca/take-action #yeg #yeggers #edmonton #alberta #yegliving #yeglife #refusesingleuse #edmontonliving #wastefreeyeg #singleuseplastics #saynotoplastic #plasticpollution #ditchdisposables #goplasticfree #gogreenin2019 #banthebag #zerowaste #savetheplanet #sustainablelifestyle #earthdayeveryday

If you are interested in my stuff you now I share moments of my well deserved Spanish vacation in my daily stories. I am happy, relaxed and can’t ask for anything more that I have now. I am grateful. What I am not? I am not a model and have the feeling won’t ever be. I have muffin top I honestly hate and continuously fighting against, but I am learning to accept the body I have now and that’s it. Unfortunately Spanish people near Castellon de la Plana (region Valencia) don’t speak English so it’s hard to make new relationships here and now more about life, but one thing I am sure about the women living here don’t give a fuck about others opinion and enjoy beach life free without the perfect beach bodies. It’s so cool. On Sunday I will go home with love in my heart and energy in my body and mind to start again the kind of rat race my work currently is. Peace & love ☮️ ❤️

🌍 We need to move away from this convenience type lifestyle we have adopted and go back to basics, back to nature, utilizing what it has to offer and taking care of her in return. Making your own preparations when possible, learning to live with less, shopping locally, making your own remedies for minor complaints and most importantly, move away from purchasing the convenience packets of all kinds! If we all try to live a more gentle lifestyle, learn to live within our limits, I'm sure this will have a huge impact on our planet.. . 💛 Today I have made Lemon Infused Dusters 🍋 I hope this will help enable you to rid your cupboards of the all to easy, but not at all so planet friendly - 'convenience dusters' that come in a plastic packet and contain plastic. . 🍋 All you need is = * 2 cups lemon infused distilled white vinegar, •this is just lemon peel infused in d.w.vinegar for at least 2 -4 weeks. *1 cup boiled and cooled water * lemon rind * 4 drops lemon eo * 1/4 tsp olive oil * old dish cloth, cut up into squares . ✨ How - add all the solution, vinegar, water + oils into a large jar or container with your cloths, shake + leave to soak for 1/2 hour. ✨ Ring out the cloths when the times up, add them to a jar with a tight fitting lid with the extra lemon rind. Keep leftover solution in a separate jar to re-infuse later. 🎇 Wash cloths out with boiling water after each use and re-infuse them in the leftover solution. 🌍 Have you made the switch from the plastic packet cleaning convenience? If not, I hope this will help you to remove some of the commercial clap trap products from your home.

This morning I drafted a new size bag pattern. This one is a medium size but still plenty of depth to hold lots of shopping. I made this bag from a home made retro pillowcase I purchased from @retropopstop The pillowcase had a couple of tears in it that I was made aware of prior to purchase. And for this reason I had to redraft the bag pattern to avoid the tears. I will be keeping this one because it also has an ink stain that I could not avoid. This is expected when using repurposed fabrics and linens. #shoppingbags #grocerybag #ecofriendlybags #reusablebags #upcycle #choosetoreuse #buyonce #goplasticfree #saynotoplastic #sustainableliving #handmade #australianmade #imadeit #retrofabric

🛒The other thing I have notice in the supermarket its the increase in small size portion products. Or in other words single-use portions. . One small can, one small bottle, one small bag or one small container of a product that has just enough one use. This products bring commodity to people but at the cost of creating more waste and using resources.❗ . 😊👉That's why this month we are only buying big portions of everything in an intent to reduce the amount of waste we produce. Also, buying the bigger portions is generally better for your wallet, so an extra incentive.💲 . . . #SustainableCollective #GreenMonthProject #zerowaste #ecofriendly #savetheplanet #wastefree #plasticfree #savetheocean #ecoblogger #environment #goplasticfree #ecochallenge #gogreen #foodwaste #cleantheocean #ecotravel #ReuseReduceRecycle #instaenvironment #ecoblog #ecolifestyle #ecoliving #zerowasteliving #sustainability #sustainableliving #highvibetribe #saynotoplastic #minimalistlifestyle #ecowarrior #sustainableblogger #BreakFreeFromPlastic

Our planet is dying and it makes me so deeply anxious and sad. It frustrates me that people are so ignorant and dismissive of literally the biggest modern issue. Climate change is soon going to be irreversible and I can't see a future where people actually get their shit together just because of stupid concepts. Money is just fucking paper why cant people ignore it and just do good things to save the planet because we want to live??? And survive??? I dont want to raise a child on a planet that will die before them. It isn't fair. Older generations tend to laugh it off but I honestly cant understand the lack of empathy. We have to deal with it because no-one else will. So I'm going to try cutting out animal products, I will walk more rather than drive. I'll reduce my plastic use. I'll start composting and recycle more again. I'll donate to organisations who can help. I'll do my research and try and help. Because it seems like nothing is being done and it makes me so fucking sad. Please save our planet. #fuckclimatechange #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #saveourplanet #goplasticfree #vegan #vegetarian #amazonrainforest #savetheforests #globalwarming #nature #dontlitter #recycle #choosesustainability

Hi guys, we are back from our (very) mini break up in Cheshire and thought I'd share some new discoveries (well new to me anyway!). We stopped at M & S, because we're a sucker for their food department, and I noticed this! I bought a macaroni cheese with garlic mushrooms from their balanced for you range (even though I'd just eaten 2 pan eau Chocolat!) And I spotted that all the packaging is recyclable! Which is great because I was surprised recently at how much of our food packaging cannot be recycled, and just ends up in landfill! Please don't Jump on me because it might not be made from recycled plastic!... I am just winging it folks, and in my opinion, a small change is better than no change!! #vegetarian #macncheese #vegetarianfoodideas #recyclable #reuse #recycle #cheeselover #plasticfree #goplasticfree #healtheworld #saveourplanet #prayforamazonia #smallsteps #bigchange #smallchanges #vegan #eco #ecofriendlyliving #ecohome #ecofood #mands #marksnsparks #mushroomlover #healthyeating #readymeals #ecowarriors #ecoliving #shropshirelife

Have you heard of microplastics? Some scary thing that only exists in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? Wrong. Today, these plastics from single-use-plastics, synthetic clothes and other sources have permeated everything from our air, to our water, to wildlife, to food. We have effectively destroyed our environment with a substance that is now beginning to bioaccumulate in us. The average person consumes 250g of plastic a year, with over 75% of adults having detectable levels BPA!!!! . If that doesn't worry you about just how far gone our planet is, perhaps you haven't watched enough videos of birds dying from the sheer amount of plastic in their bodies. There is no natural way to process plastic, so it becomes a part of our lung tissue and liver tissue, causing unknown degrees of metabolic and respiratory problems. . End your use of plastics, single use and other within your home and join the fight to ban the toxic substances in our community. Join the zero-waste movement to have a chance at maintaining only 250g per year of plastic in your body. The chance this gives the next generation is small but it's the only change we have of not destroying all life as we know it in the next decade.

🇨🇦 A #TBT to inspire the people going to the Amazon rainforest protests not to leave their trash behind. If your city doesn't have enough trash cans around the protests' areas, take your trash with you in a reusable bag as that's not an excuse to litter the streets. An excellent idea for an environmental protest would be to pick up trash along the way and leave the streets cleaner than they were before. Most people go to protests to enact change, but there's always a group who starts breaking store windows, writing graffiti on walls, and creating unnecessary chaos for the others, so PUH-LEASE, don't be that person. If you're joining a protest for the environment, be mindful of the environment you're in as well. ⠀⠀ 🇧🇷 Um #ThrowbackThursday para inspirar as pessoas que vão às manifestações pela floresta amazônica para não deixarem lixo para trás. Se sua cidade não tem latas de lixo suficiente ao redor das áreas das manifestações, leve seu lixo com você em um saco reutilizável, pois isso não é desculpa para emporcalhar as ruas. Uma excelente ideia para um protesto ambiental seria catar o lixo ao longo do caminho e deixar as ruas mais limpas do que estavam antes. A maioria das pessoas vão à protestos para efetuar mudança, mas há sempre um grupo que começa a quebrar vitrines, escrever graffiti nas paredes e criar um caos desnecessário para os outros, então, POR FAVOR, não seja essa pessoa. Se você está participando de uma manifestação pelo meio ambiente, seja consciente do meio ambiente em que você está também. ⠀⠀ 📷: http://g1.globo.com/distrito-federal/noticia/2016/04/garis-retiram-dez-toneladas-de-lixo-de-protestos-na-esplanada.html . #prayforamazon #prayforamazonia #amazonia #amazoniaforest #florestaamazonica #florestaamazônica #savetheamazon #amazonfire #savetheforest #savetheforests #manifestacao #manifestação #manifestacoes #saynotosingleuse #refusesingleuse #saynotoplastic #plasticfree #plasticpollution #singleuseplastic #singleuseplastics #ditchdisposables #goplasticfree #sustainablelifestyle #singleuseplasticsucks #bringyourown #sustainable #sustainability #educateyourself

Over the past year we (family of 4) have gone through so many changes when it comes to trying to live more sustainably. It's been up down and all around! We have changed in so many ways and continue to do so + so has our home. Every room has gone through some sort of transition + at different speeds, due to availability. Today I want to talk about one room in particular, our bathroom. 🛁 . Being able to REFILL and this is the (availability) I was meaning, (I know it's not available to everyone sadly) has transformed our bathroom + enabled us to refill our bottles🧴and containers with our favourite liquid bathroom essentials > Shampoo, conditioner + body wash. Why wasn't this option available yeeears ago?! At least its here now, thank goodness! 🙏 Being able to refill on these necessities has most definitely been one of the best swaps for our family. It has eliminated Sooo much waste. Best of all, the need to buy these everyday essentials in plastic is now well and truly GONE. It allows us to adopt a zerowaste option. 🍃 . We all know now, have heard and seen, most of the things that we buy in plastic that is sent away to be recycled isn't recycled - they end up in landfill or sent off to pollute other countries! 😪 . So to me, the best option is to try and not buy these products. If you can fill + refill it will help reduce so much waste. It's zerowaste. . What we use is @faithinnature_uk and I filled my up my containers - @the.refillery.edinburgh . We are all very happy using this brand. Ethical, cruelty free, vegan and all natural ingredients. Refiling to me is the best way to help stop so much unnecessary plastic waste. 🌍 . Do you have refill shops near you? Have you made the switch to refillables?

The Amazon rainforest has been burning for three weeks. This rainforest keeps us alive. It is the planet's lungs. The National Institute for Space Research monitors fires using satellite images. This week it reported it had detected 39,194 fires this year in the world’s largest rain forest, a 77 percent increase from the same period in 2018. The more we chop trees, the less the rains fall, the drier the ground, the more it burns, the more the animals die, the more humans kills the earth. Why are the trees chopped? For fossil fuel 🙄 renewable energy is the only sustainable way forward. If we don't stop destroying our mother earth, if we don't demand action on climate change, if the Amazon dies, we'll all die too #savetheamazon #savemotherearth 📸 @digital.tiff

Plastic accumulating in our oceans and on our beaches has become a global crisis. Billions of pounds of plastic can be found in swirling convergences that make up about 40 percent of the world's ocean surfaces.

It’s important to reduce our trash and food waste from reaching a landfill because they do not decompose properly, releasing methane in the process. More methane in the air basically means an increased likelihood of natural disasters like forest fires from higher temperatures. - I love shopping at the farmer’s market because: •we become more mindful of what we buy because we pay for quality over quantity 🥦🥑🍅 •we waste less food because we invest more $$$ in a food item than at a grocery store, thus pushing us to use as much of the food item as possible (but this should be done regardless) 🚯 •we pay in cash, helping us spend only what we budgeted for & thus saving money 💰 •we eat whole foods Mother Nature provided for us that aren’t factory-processed or man-made (they are just pure whole foods grown from the ground)🌳 - I am not always able to go but I try my best to as much as I can. What do you love to buy at the farmer’s market? My favorites are assorted vegetables like carrots or spinach, organic pasture-raised eggs, and package-free bath bombs + soaps in my reusable bag 😊

Voluntary measures have been shown to have some benefits. For example, voluntary measures were implemented approximately 10 years ago in Edmonton to address SUP bags. While those measures resulted in some reduction in SUP usage, stronger action is necessary adequately deal with the growing SUP problem. But relying on voluntary measures also results in an inconsistent and patchwork approach to SUPs that can make things more difficult and confusing for businesses and consumers. A bylaw will provide certainty, consistency, and a level playing field for everyone.

Here it goes, the eco friendly swap I was most nervous about... • Thanks to @mutinyshaving there was no reason to be! In an effort to ditch my plastic razor I picked this stainless steel safety razor after reading rave reviews! You simply unscrew the top, pop the blade in and shave away • I’m not going to lie I was convinced this change would be a painful journey, of cut legs and armpits (and anywhere else you’d want to shave lol) but I’ve come out the other side pain free! I read up on how to use them before hand, and my top tip is they honestly need zero pressure, just let the blade do it’s thing • The shaving soap smells amazing and lathers up wonderfully, the razor is easy and (most importantly) painless to use, and overall I’m so glad I finally bit the bullet and went for it! • As with all my eco friendly swaps, now I’ve switched there’s no turning back - what’s the point when the eco friendly options are even better than the options that are destroying our planet! • Have you tried a safety razor before? If not I can’t recommend Mutiny Shaving enough! #jointhemutiny #mutinyshaving #safetyrazor #ditchplastic #goplasticfree #plasticfreeswaps #ecofriendlyswaps #ecofriendlypackaging #ecofriendly #saveourplanet #ecohinching #ecoproducts #sustainable #reusable #sustainableliving #ecoblogger #ecofriendlyliving #lowwaste #environmentallyfriendly #holistic #spiritual #holisticblogger #cleaningcommunity #cleaningblogger #hincher #greencleaning #chemicalfreecleaning #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger

🇨🇦 The Amazon rainforest has been burning for 3 weeks, and the media didn’t cover it until the smoke reached the SE of Brazil. The leading cause of deforestation (around 80%) is cattle ranching with wood extraction and infrastructure (road building+urbanization) falling into the other 20% (the infrastructure caters to the other two really, because who needs infrastructure in a forest but the people taking things out of it?). The current government has made things worse with its complete disregard for environmental policies, but who’s making cattle ranchers profitable? In this supply and demand scheme, politicians are GETTING PAID to look the other way, and we MUST stop them, but who’s paying the ranchers? As sad and heartbreaking as it is, we are. We, the people who vote with our wallets and consume the items they are destroying the forest and killing the indigenous population and activists for: meat, dairy and leather. Most people (myself included) stop consuming meat easier than dairy, but forget that dairy is the next worse item to beef because they come from the same animal! I was born in the cheese-making state of Brazil, and we are known for our fresh cheeses and our mouth-watering cheese bread. Losing that part of my identity has been hard, but I had to make a choice that didn’t just affect me. My journey to mindful and sustainable eating and consumption of goods hasn’t been easy nor perfect, but I have been able to decrease my footprint. I’m here to hopefully inspire you so that we can walk this journey together, not blaming or pointing fingers at each other for what the other hasn't been able to do yet, but to educate and learn better ways to coexist with ourselves and nature. In the end, we are not fighting to save the environment or the animals in it; we are fighting to save ourselves. Earth has been here for billions of years and will continue to be, adapting and reshaping its surface as it needs to, but the real question here is if we and our children will survive it. Not in 100 years, but the next 10. We will either commit indirect mass suicide, or affect direct change today. What will you choose? 📷s: @sanofficialx. Text by me.

In fact, general disposable menstrual products contain up to 90% of plastic and take over 500 years to break down. They have a very negative impact on environment and our body. . We all can make a difference, wherever we live by choosing safer products for the environment and ourselves. Stay tuned to know how! #periodpollution #sustainableliving #changeisgood #healthylifestyle #sustainability #goplasticfree #plasticfreeliving

I'm off to Edinburgh today and while I'm there I'm going to fill up with supplies. You don't need the perfect looking basket with the perfect ball jars and all the matching produce bags. Sustainably is about using the resources you already have, it's not about going out buying things you don't need. So use your plastic, don't throw it out for the sake of having the perfect looking I.G. my family are great for throwing me the glass jars and bottles they've used up and if I dont need them, there recycled. Plastic, that 💩 gonna last forever, so use it! . If your lucky enough to be able to shop in an ecofriendly shop, just take whatever you have that's practical and is easy enough to haul about with you and fill!! I have 2 plastic bottles a few plastic tubs. One of the bottles is a reused Mars Bar drink bottle I found, the other is my ecover fabric softener bottle that will be refilled today. I always take my plastic tubs with me because they are easy to carry about + light. I can pile them on top of one another and not worry about any breakage. Lastly, I've brought a repurposed glass jar +my produce bags that r stored in the green bag. I also have spare bag and of course, water and my coffee cup! . How do you bulk shop? Do you go for beauty or mix of everything?? . Happy hump day everyone! Hope it's a good one! 😃

Do you prefer shopping at a grocery store or farmer’s market?⠀ -⠀ One of my favorite ways to shop package free is at the farmer’s market 😄 I am not always able to go because of time, errands, a busy schedule, etc. but I try to as much as I can because we:⠀ -⠀ • are able to support local businesses ⠀ • eat organic produce & locally grown fruits & vegetables 🥑🥦🥝🍅⠀ • are able to get our produce plastic and sticker-free⠀ -⠀ Sharing a fun video of my favorite waste-free tips tomorrow at 6:30pm. Hope you like it as much as it was fun to make it ☺️

There's 5,500 years of plastic pollution in this photo...can you spot it?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The pretty, colourful things below the bee & flower are brightly coloured plastic coffee capsules.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Non-recyclable, if they reach landfill they will need around 500 years each to degrade.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For us, coffee capsules are a ticking environmental time bomb. In the UK, we drink almost 100 million cups of coffee every day! And research in 2016 found that nearly 1/3 of households own a coffee capsule or coffee pod machine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That means billions of plastic capsules going into black bins across the UK, showcasing just how damaging our caffeine habit is.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For us, single-use plastic coffee pods are a dormant environmental disaster that is yet to be recognised by the media & Governments.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sadly there’s no mention of coffee pods and capsules in the EU’s single-use plastic ban though, so the mountains of plastic coffee capsules going into landfill will not cease to grow. Some are also burnt for energy where they let off toxic chemicals instead, so there's no easy answer other than to ban them or avoid buying them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That's why we've created petroleum & plastic-free, compostable coffee pods made from starch and wood bark that's a bi-product of the European paper industry.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Placed in your food waste collection, they will be processed into compost or liquid fertilizer within around 12 weeks depending on the facilities used by your local council.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That aside, our organic and single origin coffees taste great so there's no excuse not to make the switch!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #PlasticFree #LifeWithoutPlastic #PlasticFreeProducts #PlasticFreeLiving #GoPlasticFree #ChooseToReuse #PlasticSucks #SingleUseSucks #BeatPlasticPollution #NoPlastic #coffeepods #ecocoffeepods #ethicalcoffee #plasticfreecoffee #PlasticPollutes #DitchTheDisposables #ecofriendlycoffee #compostableplastic #compostablecoffeecapsules #saynotosingleuse #plasticfreejuly #plasticfreeliving #zerowaste #gozerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastecoffee #zerowastelife

♻️ Here are 2 common recycling symbols...that don't actually tell you if you can recycle your item!⠀ .⠀ It's so important that we recycle correctly, but confusing symbols don't make it any easier.⠀ .⠀ In the UK, the best way to find out if you can recycle your item is to check what your local council collects. Every council differs, so product packaging symbols can't be relied on!⠀ .⠀ Even better, remember to reduce and reuse where you can! Head to our blog to learn more. 🌎⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zeroplastic #zerowastejourney #zerowastelife #plasticfree #sustainability #environment #environmentallyfriendly #subscriptionaddiction #subscriptionservice #ecofriendlyproducts #ecofriendlypackaging #soap #plasticfreeproducts #plasticfreeliving #goplasticfree #choosetoreuse #ditchthedisposables #choosetorefuse #lifewithoutplastic #ditchplastic #zerowastelifestyle #planetorplastic #plasticfreeuk #saveouroceans #sustainableproducts #greenlife #greenliving #recycling

Dziś minimalistycznie w formie prawie-koszyczka, jeszcze tylko jedno podwinięcie i gotowe :) Z mojej torby na pieczywo możecie korzystać również w taki sposób - wywinąć elegancko i postawić na stole. A robi się to tak: . 1. Idziecie do piekarni i mówicie „Poproszę do własnego worka :)” #bezplastiku 2. Zakładacie worek na ramię i wracacie dumni do domu 💪 3. Kroicie swieze pieczywko, wywijacie raz-dwa i serwujecie chrupiące kromki w materiałowym koszyczku. . Proste, nie? 😉 . Jestem ciekawa czy właściele swoich toreb-lessplisków korzystali już z niej w ten sposób? . Znalazłam to zdjęcie niedawno i zakochałam w jego prostocie. A skoro dziś u Dominiki @kobiecafotoszkola tematem jest minimalizm to splotło się to idealnie :) W ogóle ostatnich kilka zdjęć pochodzi z mojej pierwszej, samodzielnie wykonanej „sesji”, którą zrobiłam po ukończeniu kursu online Dominiki. Swoją drogą, gdyby nie ten kurs, w życiu nie doszłabym do tego jak obsługiwać mój aparat, a teraz tryb manualny mi nie straszny. Mam jeszcze dużo do nauczenia, ale podstawy obsługi sprzętu znam więc trzymając obiektyw i body w rękach nie jestem już bezradna :)
