Shopping in Aldi today noticed this selection of bags for sale... 1. Plastic bag 9p 2. Hessian bag 99p 3. Cloth bag £1.49 It went through my mind, what would happen if Aldi subsidised the plastic bag by swooping the price and making the plastic bag £1.49 and the cloth bag 9p TO HELP THE ENVIRONMENT !!!!! #anythingbutplastic #sustainableliving #biodegradable #buyplasticfree #consciousconsumer #doityourself #nomoreplasticwaste #noplanetb 🌎 #instagood #photooftheday #goplasticfree #zerowastelifestyle #love #greenearth #blueplanet2 #saveourtrees #gogreen 💚

It's Global Recycling Day!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although here in the UK we do recycle a lot more than we used to, there are still so many items that cannot be recycled.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It can be so confusing, especially when you think something can be recycled, only to find out there's some strange foil or plastic film on it which stops it being recycled. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There is actually a petition on the UK Gov website: "Ban the use of all non-recyclable and unsustainable food packaging". I'll definitely be signing!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although recycling is important, we also need to reduce what we use too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've made a few switches to "use less". Most recently switching to bars of soap instead of shower gel in a plastic bottle & am looking at switching to shampoo & conditioner cubes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you think of the petition? Do you think it will encourage people to recycle more?

Warmer temps seem to be (hopefully) here to stay, so it's the unofficial start of iced coffee season in our house. Of course don't forget that reusable straw, but this is another great opportunity to let those already versatile mason jars serve as your iced coffee cups, thanks to these @ecojarz (Amazon aff link: https://amzn.to/2Fg46zM). Easy to enjoy at home or on the go, plastic-free! . #MakeachangeMonday #goplasticfree #shopsmarter

My weekly shopping is never completely plastic free but I’ve massively reduced the single use plastic I buy by more than 70% thanks to more refill and plastic free shops and just taking containers along to shops and asking. This weekend we visited @barealternative @theunwrappedshop and @barraorganics 💙💙Thank you, thank you for helping customers say no to single use plastics. If you need motivation on why it’s so important another article this week on whales washed up dead and full of plastic 40kg worth 😢We can help stop this! Every little helps, get refilling 👊💙🌍🌊 🐋 🐋 🐋 #refillrevolution #goplasticfree #plasticnotfantastic #plasticpollution #zerowaste #climatechange #planetorplastic #saveouroceans #saveourseas #saynotosingleuseplastics #bethechange #litterpicks #stoptheplastictide #beacheans #organic #noplanetb

My #plasticfree cupboard, having a bulkstore nearby has been a lifesaver in plastic lent! While some things are more expensive to buy this way @rice_up_wholefoods is externally reasonable overall and some things are actually cheaper this way! Plus they have a 10% discount for uni students ❤ I got all my jars from Ikea and love how dramatically they have reduced my plastic use, if you have a bulk store near you I highly recommend giving this a try! - Ella x #bulkstore #plasticfreelent #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreeocean #environmental #ecofriendly #reducewaste #reusable #savetheplanet #saynotoplastic #student #saynotosingleuse #beachclean #noplastic #foodshop #goplasticfree #lesswaste #inspiration

So long summer 👋🏻 I think that it’s finally time to admit that the mornings are getting colder and the evenings are a bit darker (however, the days are still pretty 👌🏼). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Therefore, for this week only we have 30% off all towels with the code SUMMERSALE at www.stowaway.nz 🌞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So if you haven’t tried a Stowaway towel yet, if you have a gift to buy or if you are heading overseas this winter for a tropical getaway then this is the time to buy as it is our biggest sale yet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, I have decided that on top of our standard 5% of profits that we donate to help preserve NZ beaches, oceans & marine life that I will also donate a further 15% of profits to the @givealittlenz page for the Christchurch shooting victims fund 💔 ~ #stowawaytowels #nzbusiness #nzsmallbusiness #supportlocal #shoplocal #newzealand

Guten Morgen! Es ist #bewegwasmontag und @franzischaedel @linbergmann @die_wolkenguckerin und michse fragen uns, was ihr außerhalb des Internet für Umweltschutz und Nachhaltigkeit tut. Seid ihr auch im Leben 1.0 aktiv? Ich selbst rette jedes Jahr tonnenweise Lebensmittel vor dem Müll und verteile sie an soziale Einrichtungen weiter. Dazu haben wir im Januar unseren eigenen Verein gegründet. Beim Spazierengehen sammle ich Müll auf und gebe ihn dorthin wo er reingehört: in eine Mülltonne. Und auch hier zuhause machen wir einiges für den Schutz unseres Planeten. Wir drosseln unseren Konsum, auch Strom und Wasser. Wir kaufen regional und nur das nötigste in Plastik verpackt. In den Urlaub fliegen wir nicht. Wenn dann fliege ich mal allein für eine Pressereise aber zusammen, dass ist lange her. Das Zelt und die Natur hautnah sind uns viel lieber. Verratet uns doch mal was ihr so macht. Verlinkt uns gern, damit wir euren Beitrag finden und teilen können. Und teilt doch auch untereinander und vernetzt euch so unter #bewegwasmontag Photocredit @juliia.carola #sharingiscaring #sharing #noplanetb #noplastic #goplasticfree #nachhaltigkeit #earth #nachhaltigleben #sustainability #nachhaltig #fridaysforfuture #ourfuture #futureisnow #savetheplanet

4 Quick and Easy Ways to Make Your Laundry Eco - 1. Ditch the plastic pegs for bamboo or stainless steel. 2. Use a laundry Bar for spot cleaning, stain removing and hand washing - no packaging. 3. Laundry products that outperform the mainstream chemical equivalents but don’t kill the earth. 4. Use a solar dryer, you have that already, it’s hanging up in the sky 😁. #linedry #sundried #goplasticfree #organized #healthyfamily

One of the main single use plastics that I use is razors, I go through a ridiculous amount yearly, which not only makes my bank account cry but is also insanely bad for the environment. So for plastic free lent I had to fix this, and this tiltshave safety razor was my fix. While I originally struggled to adjust to the change I've finally got the hang of it and I have to say I'm never looking back! I've had less cuts and a smoother shave with this, plus it's so easy to swap the blade! Such a simple way too reduce your impact on the environment, I have no idea why I didn't do this sooner! ❤ - Ella x #reducewaste #reusable #savetheplanet #savetheoceans #noplastic #plastic #plasticfreelent #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreeocean #marineconservation #saynotoplastic #saynotosingleuse #environmental #ecofriendly #inspiration #ocean #oneplanet #goplasticfree #lesswaste #zerowaste

I am clearly a tomato addict, I like it in every form; raw, sauce, juice, grilled, whatever. As spring is near and weather is good local tomatoes can be found at more and more vendors at the Saturday farmers market. Only one kind of tomato can be even more delicious than those you can buy from the small vendors - the tomato you grow for yourself. And you don’t even need a garden to do so. I asked my husband to grow two Italian types on our balcony this year, cherry tomatoes and San Marzano. He is really good in balcony gardening so I can’t wait the first perfect little red beauties to show themselves. I am not sure I can ever get bored of our Saturday farmers market trips 😉... Is there any kind of food you can’t live without?

I'm going to take it as a compliment that the young woman on the till in Sainsbury's just recognized me as 'the woman with all the loose veg'. I've been doing this for a while now... just dropping all my veg in a bag as I go round and then placing the whole bag on the conveyor when I pay. They have to take it out and weigh the individual groups of items. Easy way to eliminate lots of little plastic bags. Fair bit of eye-rolling from the couple behind me in the queue... which is part disappointing, part amusing... and will only spur me on to do more! I can't always get to a farm shop, or to the market, but I can do this. As they say at the other place... 'Every Little Helps'!

Did you know that most makeup wipes are made from a combination of materials that are not biodegradable? Makeup wipes may seem like a convenience, but let’s just say you used one wipe a day, that would mean 365 wipes would end up in a landfill—and that’s just your use! Now, consider all the hundreds of thousands of other people who use them regularly, and imagine being able to eliminate that waste. Well, you can. There are far more sustainable options for removing makeup that are just as convenient! Keep a small jar of coconut oil and a washcloth or reusable cotton pad in your night table for those nights when you don’t want to wash your face. Not only will it do a better job of removing your makeup, but it’s good for your skin. Double win!

Without thinking about it, I had already failed within my first hour of waking up. This '1 Day No Single-Use Plastic Challenge' was a great reminder for me to look at the things that sometimes slowly creep back into my life, especially when I don't have time to plan and prepare myslef. Things have been busy lately and as soon as i started I realised that I had backtracked in a few ways. Because I had been unable to go to the farmers market the past few weeks, i realised that: ❌my salads were all packaged in plastic. ❌I ran out of loose leaf tea (so I've opted for teabags) ❌I haven't been able to go to the bakery and had a bagel(wrapped in plastic) for breakfast For the rest of the day I've been following my usual routine of having: ✔a refillable bottle to drink my water ✔having my coffee cup ready for a hot drink ✔carrying a bag with me- in case I need to buy something last minute. What this challenge showed me again is to constantly look into what I am currently doing and seeing if there are better ways to improve myself. It is not about being perfect, but becoming aware of my impact on the environment and trying to better myself, small little steps at a time. How did your '1 Day No Single-Use Plastic Challenge' go?

Thank you KATU news photographer for this photo and for documenting the strike/march. Everyone can make a difference in their daily lives. By switching to biodegradable toothbrushes, doggy bags, reusable grocery bags/nets, mason jars for bulk over boxed, recycled plastic shampoos/conditioners/body-washes, cleaning concentrates w/ water and reusable glass spray bottles, reusable metal/glass water-bottles/ straws, reusable glass/metal Tupperware, reusable metal/bamboo utensils, buying equitably sourced brands, buying local, buying organic, you can make a difference. Many of you might not be old enough to vote, but each of you can change your own habits. . . . #goplasticfree #reuse #reduce #recycle #sustainability #climatemarch #globalclimatemarch #globalwarmingisreal #makeachange #pdxclimatestrike #youthforclimate #youthstrike4climate

Basta andar um pouquinho no Centro de Fortaleza (principalmente em dias de chuva) para ver cenas como essa. Essas imagens nos ajudam a refletir também sobre nossas atitudes.. Vemos aí copos descartáveis, canudos plásticos, embalagens plásticas. Que tal se levarmos na bolsa nossa própria garrafa com água , por exemplo? Que tal substituirmos os canudos plásticos, pelos de inox ou de vidro? Ou simplesmente beber diretamente no copo. Pequenas mudanças fazem a diferença. #lixozero #zerowaste #fortaleza #ceara #vivaocentro #vivaocentrofortaleza #cidade #goplasticfree

😞Der UN-Umweltgipfel in Nairobi, Kenia endete ohne verbindliche Einigung über eine UN-Konvention gegen Plastikmüll. Blockierer seien die USA und Kuba gewesen. Die Umweltminister von über 190 Mitgliedsstaaten beschlossen auf der UNEA bislang nur den Kompromiss, das Problem von Experten in Arbeitsgruppen beurteilen zu lassen. Laut Umweltstaatssekretär Jochen Flasbarth seien die Länder dazu aufgerufen Kreislaufwirtschaftssysteme zu errichten und weitere Maßnahmen zur Verbesserung der Situation zu ergreifen. Wie kontrovers, dass in dieser Woche gleichzeitig eine Studie des UN Global Environment Outlooks veröffentlicht wurde, die vor Todesopfern durch Umweltverschmutzung warnt...‼️ . . . . . #UNEA #umweltgipfel #umweltkonferenz #unkonvention #umweltminister #plastikkonvention #plastikreduzierung #plastikmüll #plastikproblem #plastikkrise #umweltschutz #umweltverschmutzung #politik #UN #jochenflasbarth #globalenvironmentoutlooks #outlooks #environment #plasticpollution #beatplasticpollution #breakfreefromplastic #goplasticfree #plastikfrei #unitednations #kreislaufwirtschaft #nairobi #kenia

St. Patrick's Day is another holiday that can be wasteful as lots of people buy green items, such as single-use green plastic cups, utensils, plates, and accessories that end up in the trash and consequently the landfill. Here's how to have a less wasteful St. Patrick's Day and still have a great time: wear green coloured clothes you already own or borrow from a friend; car pool or take transit to the pubs and bars; if you’re hosting a party, use reusable dishes and cutlery and buy second-hand green cloth towels and napkins for decoration that you can reuse every year; and make homemade goodies with natural green colouring with spinach or kale. How will you make your #StPatricksDay greener this year?

Nothing beats a walk by the sea, on a cold day with warm sun. This is a stretch of the Gower in South Wales where I walked with my mum. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's proven that time in nature is good for us. In the Shetland Islands in Scotland, doctors can now even prescribe nature as a remedy. But I think this was something we always knew. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On an isolated beach, there was a sad sight. A huge pile of plastic - fishing nets, McDonalds, Tesco bags (swipe to see). The rocky shore was covered in pieces of plastic - items as simple as straws or a person's toothbrush. It's a sad reminder that our waste simply doesn't disappear when we throw it out. 🤦‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One thing we can do when we see stuff like this is take some of that litter away with us. We took all we could carry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In her book 'Zero Waste Home', Bea Johnson says we should try to leave the places we visit cleaner than we found them. Is this something you've experienced? . . . #authentichouse #treadlightly #beachcleanup #2minutebeachclean #PassOnPlastic #OceanPlastics #PlasticPollutes #DitchTheDisposables #choosetorefuse #lifewithoutplastic #ditchplastic #planetorplastic #reducereuserecycle #plasticfreeuk #saveouroceans #bringyourownkit #PlasticFreeLiving #GoPlasticFree #ChooseToReuse #PlasticSucks #SingleUseSucks #BeatPlasticPollution #NoPlastic #StopPlasticPollution

Shamrock Shake 🍀 ⠀⠀ Swipe ➡️ to get the recipe! @healthyhumanlife sent the cutest St. Patrick’s package (you can see it on my HH highlights) and they included this recipe card! Obv I had to make one. I took a sip to make sure it was good and then let my smoothie loving boyfriend slurp up the rest... and wash the dishes 😂 ⠀⠀ Ps I bought my first healthy human bottle years ago and love it SO much which is why I decided to be an ambassador. (Also I’m a huge advocate for eliminating single use plastic and don’t even remember the last time I bought a plastic water bottle thanks to my HH.) One cool thing about being an ambassador is that I get a discount code to share with you 😎 FORKIN10 gets you 10% off. My fave product is the sea foam green 12 oz cruiser - I drink my matcha out of it almost every day! Link in bio to shop!

3 anni, 2 mesi e qualche giorno fa ri-esordivo su Instagram con una foto di me sorridente, presa di profilo ad una festa. Oggi, in occasione del #fridaysforfuture , @lisa_valet_ mi ha disegnato un bell'alberello autunnale sulla guancia: occasione perfetta per una nuova foto di profilo, speculare all'altra, con un sorriso meno da posa, ma i capelli sempre corti ( perché #certecoserestano ). 🌍 #manifestazione #genova #goplasticfree #genovaportoantico #planetishotterthanyoungleodicaprio #hashtag (Gli spazi che non dovrebbero esserci, non li voglio ma li devo lasciare)

You don’t need to use polystyrene containers and plastic cutlery for food on the go 😁 the key is to always be prepared! I always try to carry my metal lunch box and bamboo cutlery (can’t take normal cutlery on the plane) with me wherever I go, that way I can refuse single use plastic when I’m out and about! 🙌🏼 What items do you like to have at hand to avoid single use plastic? Let us know in the comments below 😊👇🏼 #doitfordavid #singleuseplastic #saveouroceans

Straight from the horses mouth! . This is why a straw made from 100% natural wheat is so much better than the plastic alternatives! . “Plant based catering disposables are designed to break down in commercial composting” - emphasis on the commercial there - this is not provided by the majority of councils! Industrial facilities are the only way to provide the conditions needed for these bioplastics to break down: warmth, oxygen, microbes and moisture. Otherwise they’re not much better than plastic! . And they won’t break down in the sea either! This type of straw is hugely popular in bars, restaurants and coffee houses. All it’s doing is replacing one problem with another! #fail 🤦‍♂️ . . . #drinkingstraws #reusablestraw #reusablestraws #noplasticstraws #refusesingleuse #savemarinelife #goplasticfree #savetheturtles #drinksindustry #londonbar #londonbars #zerowasteuk #toplondonrestaurants #londonrestaurants #londoncocktails #cocktailslondon #ditchthestraw #laststraw #finalstraw #metalstraw #ecofriendly #londoncoffee #londoncoffeeshops #vegansofldn #plantbased #vegansofinstagram #sustainable #plasticfreehackney

This native American proverb is 👌👌 — For the sake of our children, doing something about climate change and plastic pollution should be the top of everyone's agenda 🧐 — And everyone plays a part... Never think "well I'm just a drop in the ocean so it doesn't matter about that plastic bottle/ plastic bag/ unnecessary tat I'm just about to buy". Yes it does matter. We all matter. We ALL play a part in being the solution to this problem 🙌 — If you think that the big companies should change, then your part in that is to NOT BUY from those companies. We vote with our money people... And money is a force for good when in the right hands. 👏🤸‍♀️🙌🤩💚💚💚

🐳 Are you just starting out on your lowwaste / zerowaste journey? Then here is the perfect way to challenge yourself to go without purchasing any single-use plastics for just 1 day! The challenge initiated by @globalwakecup and @mcs_uk wants everyone to share their experience (successes and failures) in avoiding single-use plastics for 24hours and inspire 1 million people to take part in the '1 Day No Single-Use Plastic Challenge' this year. What a great initiative to get the world to share their struggles and get big coorporations to wake up and drop the plastics! If you don't have avoiding single-use plastics in your routine yet, then this is a perfect way to build your awareness and inspire a long lasting change. By taking part in this challenge and donating £2 to the Marine Conservation Society you can start creating a positive habit that will last much longer then the 24 hours. ➡ Go to @Globalwakecup for more info. Who's ready to challenge themselves for 24 hours? Go Go Go!🏃 🙆Let me know of you are taking the challenge. 🔽🔽🔽
