Round 2 of growing our own vegetables! The first time we just about managed to get a decent crop. We made a lot of mistakes but also learnt a lot. Home grown and organic pumpkin, beans, lady fingers cucumbers and tomatoes, hopefully coming soon to Ecoposro :) . . #ecoposro #ecoposrogoa #zerowaste #homegrown #goasfirstzerowastestore #greenindia #plasticfree #reusablebags #stopplastic #organic #organicindia #homegrownIndia #homegrown #zerowastegoa #zerowasteshopping #vegetablegarden #homegrowngoa

Led by Clinton Vaz from #vRecycle 2 clean ups, segregation and waste audit took place on 17th and 18th May 18'. I went to Monkey Beach clean up. Secluded beach that has landfill on the hill top (eyes roll, this story will be told another day). Monkey Beach, accessed mostly by sea by tourist boats that leave hoards of waste. We found multiple spots where waste was partly burned and then spots between rocks where it was buried and burned...half. A different spot where, I single handedly collected some 70 used sanitary pads and some tampons. Together some 19 bags of plastic bottles from only Monkey Beach. And more caps than bottles, bdw. If this doesn't make you switch, nothing will. Use #carryyourbottle #MenstrualCup , Say no to one time use plastic and please check what is the waste management system in your locality. There is no excuse to be this callous ! The way we treat Earth, imagine someone treating your home where you can just watch. This initiative is part of a coordinated waste and brand audit across India that is taking place in Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kerala, and few Himalayan states. The results will be shared on Environment Day.

Ever tried one of these? Toothbrushes that are 100% biodegradable! The handle is made of bamboo, and the bristles are made of bamboo or corn fiber. The first time I tried it, it felt a little weird as I wasn't used to having a piece of wood in my mouth. But after using it for a few days, I now can't imagine going back to having a toxic plastic stick in my mouth first thing in the morning. In India alone, more than 150 crore Toothbrushes are thrown away each MONTH. imagine all that unnecessary plastic waste. Let's try and do our part, make the switch to bamboo Toothbrushes. Available at Ecoposro. . . . . #zerowaste #zerowastegoa #ecoposro #goasfirstzerowastestore #greenindia #plasticfree #stopplastic #zerowastestoreindia #zerowasteshopping #bamboovsplastic #sustainable #bambootoothbrush

We were delighted to see this sign up in two places in a restaurant on a recent visit to #Agonda beach, although less delighted to see that the staff were not yet following this directive *at all*, and putting straws in all drinks irrespective of whether they were asked for or not. When asked about this, the restaurant owner said the policy had only been implemented three days earlier, and that the staff were taking time to adjust. We hope this is the case, but take it as an important reminder that education HAS to accompany behaviour change. If we don't understand why we're doing something, it's unlikely to stick #nostraws #Agonda #zerowastegoa #strawssuck
