Day 96 of #plogging - let's refuse single-use plastic and aim to minimise waste. We might be one of the few countries in Asia with decent recycling rates but it's not good by any measure, so let's be more responsible about our waste and how we dispose it off! Waste audit: 11 single use disposable plastic bottles (Bisleri, Aquafina) PARLE-G packets (mostly used to feed dogs, but nobody bothers to pick it up and dispose) 15 - Shikhar tobacco packets 5 - Chips packets (Kurkure, Lays- these use multi layer plastic which is very difficult to recycle!) ------------------------------- #plogging #ploggaindia #ploggers #plog #zerowaste #plogginginindia #zerowasteliving #zerowastelife #zerowastelifestyle #wastefree #trashtalk #conciousliving #conciousculture #recycling #beatplasticpollution #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly #plasticpollution #plasticsucks #plastics #sustainability #zerowasteindia #sustainable #sustainableliving

#PlasticFreeJuly - DAY 23 Setelah terbiasa menghindari plastik sekali pakai, sekarang kalau melihat makanan yg gak dibungkus rasanya seneng banget yaaaa 😍😍😍. Pembungkus roti masih jadi salah satu sampah yg cukup banyak saya hasilkan, karena saya dan suami sama-sama hobi makan roti. Di Jakarta kayaknya udah langka nemu bakery yg gak bungkusin roti/kue pake plastik individual. Sekalinya ketemu, pasti di bakery artisan, gak terjangkau, jauh dari rumah dan diluar budget 😔 Belum punya resources untuk bikin roti sendiri. Semoga kedepannya bisa nemu solusinya, atau ada yg punya rekomendasi? 😁 . . Finding unwrapped bread now feels like a luxury, because I believe almost every single bakery in Jakarta individually wrapped their bread and baked goods. One of the biggest trash I produce is bread wrapper, since both me and my husband love bread and eat it almost every day. It's kinda hard to find a budget friendly, close-from-home bakery that sells naked bread. . #supportyourlocalbusiness #womensupportwomen #plasticfreejuly #zerowasteidfreejuly #zerowaste #zerowasteindonesia #breakfreefromplastic #pantangplastik #lesswaste #waronplastic #waronwaste #bringyourowncup #sustainable #sustainableliving #nofoodwaste #indonesiatanpaplastik #beatplasticpollution #planetorplastic #zerowasteliving #zerowastehome #plasticfreejuly2018 #refusesingleuseplastic #choosetorefuse #lesswastehousewife #livinglowimpact #zerowastecollective #theartofslowliving #goingzerowaste #belajarzerowaste

‘Give what you can, take what you need’ I’m not sure if many of you know about this concept, but it has become increasingly popular in Adelaide, and is spreading interstate. The concept of Grow Free is to give whatever produce you have to share, or to take whatever you may need for yourself. It is 100% FREE and is perfect for those who may be struggling financially, or would like home grown produce. Today I visited a few of the Gawler carts and dropped off some of my Aloe Vera that I separated a couple of months ago. In return, I chose some oranges and lemons. I also picked up some mandarins but I then swapped those for the oranges. Such a good concept that we should all consider! If there is no Grow Free cart near you, create your own and share it to the grow free Facebook page! I’ve added a picture of the cart at the Gawler Environment Centre - it’s by far one of the nicest looking ones that I’ve been to! #growfree #growfreeaustralia #growfreesouthaustralia #zerowaste #zerowastehome #zerowasteliving #zerowasterookie #zerowastefood

Rainy day calls for a halwa poori nashta and which halwa poori is better than refreshment centre (commercial, rwp) ones. I requested their workers to give channay and halwa in my own boxes, they willingly gave me in those. Couldn't take anything for the pooris though, if anyone has any idea for the pooris do comment below. Also if you are looking for small reusable bags, @dwatson_chemist has one of the best ones. Just take glasses from there are you will get a bag free :D #halwapuri #channay #refreshmentcenter #commercial #zerowastelifestyle #zerowasteliving #reuse #reusewhatyouuse #reusablebags #reuseable #bringyourowncontainer

We spent some time yesterday morning playing in the sun and the ocean 🌊 Such a beautiful way to spend Sunday morning 🐚 Before we left to go home hubs picked up rubbish that had washed in with the tide. If you ever question using single use plastic just take a trip to any beach and look at what it’s doing to our beautiful oceans. We can do better. We must do better ♻️ There were a few families from the camping ground digging for clams and I couldn’t help but think, the ocean doesn’t belong to us. It’s not for us to pillage and take from. Act with compassion so that we can teach our little ones compassion. Leave everything as you found it or in a better state, so future generations can enjoy our world too 🌏💚 . . . #beachlife #rescuepup #adoptdontshop #singleuseplastic #oceancleanup #plasticfreeliving #sustainableliving #slowliving #zerowasteliving #vegan #plantbasedlife #consciousliving #consciousparenting #gentleparenting #hkig #homekong #discoverhongkong #lifeonlantau #babiesandpuppies #bestiesforlife

HAPPY PLEASURE Sudah 3 mingguan ikut kelas #zerowaste #bactch2 Bu @dkwardhani. Banyak yang berubah dari cara konsumsi kami. Dulu saking bingungnya sama kresek, akhirnya numpuk dan ga tau mau diapain. Sering dikasih ke kang sayur - tapi ini mah bagai menggarami air laut. Makin spread aja kemana-mana itu kresek. Tapi kini, saya dan suami @sumanjaya_ memulai mengurangi memasukkan benda berpotensi menjadi sampah ke rumah dan  kami merasakan yang namanya happy pleasure dan meyakini, ya inilah yang seharusnya dilakukan. Cegah timbul sampah, dimulai dari rumah sendiri. . Jebakan Kresek Walau jarang jajan, tapi kalau sekali jajan (pecel ayam, martabak telur, gorengan, baso kuah, dll) pasti masuk ke jebakan betmen eh jebakan kresek. Jenis makanan nya 1, tapi pulangnya bawa aneka kresek berbagai ukuran, termasuk didalamnya kertas nasi yang mengandung plastik. Dulu sih cuek (karena kan buangnya ke tempat sampah), sekarang menyadari kemana sampah saya pergi, ... rasa bersalah itu nyata . Bawa bekal juga termasuk menyempatkan hati mencicipi nikmatnya happy pleasure :). Ingin bawa kuahan, pakai kresek, beli nasi bungkus pake kertas nasi berplastik, nongkrong makan cilok, bungkus pakai plastik beling seperapatan :(. Hitunglah sehari kita meninggalkan jejak sampah dimana-mana. . Repot? Kalau keluar mau jajan, sekarang selalu siap kotak plastik keras. Kotaknya di masukkin ke tas belanja. Rempong deh!!! ahh kelihatannya saja. Tapi setelah pulang, dan membuka makanan di meja, tampak kok bedanya. No Sampahan sisa Jajan lagi. Kita bisa langsung buka kotak, duduk manis makan sama anak-anak :). Bepergian, usahaka bawa bekal sendiri, insya Allah dimudahkan. Pergi ke mall, siapkan kotak plastik keras, barangkali pengen jajan sesuatu atau untuk bersihkan lebihan pangan kita. Bukan sisa kecepretan ya :) tapi makanlah dalam porsi sedikit-sedikit, agar sisa makanan layak konsumsi masih pantas disimpan dan di hangatkan kembali. #menujunolsampah #zerowasteliving :: Lanjut ke comment

Petikan kata bu @dkwardhani di kelas kami #zerowastebatch2 , menjadi pengingat saya selalu. Bahwa pilihan saya untuk selalu berhati-hati terhadap sisa konsumsi pribadi bukanlah karena sekedar tren, atau latah atau ingin hanya tampil berbeda. . . Lebih dari itu, saya ingin menjadi orang yang bertanggung jawab. Terhadap apa yg saya lakukan dan apa yang saya hasilkan. Saya telah disadarkan, saya mempunyai kewajiban dan tanggung jawab mengurus sisa konsumsi saya. Agar tidak ada kehidupan lain yang terganggu bahkan terusakkan dan menderita karena ulah dzhalim keabaian dan tidak bertanggung jawab-nya saya. . . Saya ingin anak-anak menjadi pribadi yang kelak juga bertanggung jawab, peduli dan hati-hati terhadap kehidupan. Tapi semua itu hanya jadi bisikan angin saja jika saya dan suami @sumanjaya_ tidak menyempurnakan ikhtiar kami dan memberi tauladan terbaik bagi mereka.... #menujunolsampah #zerowasteliving :: Abaikan foto jajanan yg kurang kece yaaap ... Da aku mah apa atuh bukan photographer 😫 :: Bekal #isauramahija pakai kotak kedap

I got some lovely oranges of my grandmas tree and a few of them needed using up - so I made some gluten free orange cupcakes to go in the freezer ready for back to school. Along with some gluten free choc chip muffins as well 😋 . I’ll be drying the leftover peel for fire lighters, but alternatively you can also put them in a jar of vinegar to make and all purpose cleaner 🍊 (I already have enough soaking away!) . . . #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #orange #glutenfreefood #glutenfree #whattheforkfoodblog #glutenfreemuffins #lunchboxinspiration #lunchboxideas #yumbox #freezerprep #fructosefriendly #lowfodmap #fructosemalabsorption #dairyfree #bulkfood #lowwaste

Owen has gained 2 new customers this month, added these stickers to his buckets and collected slightly over 350 pounds of food from making its way to the landfill! Proud of his hard work, which can often be not so great smelling! 💚 Composting is important because: 🌱 it allows landfills to not fill as quickly, and you will use far less trash bags! 🌱more food for the garden and happier soil 🌱less methane being released and food breaks down much faster above the ground 🌱composting allows you to close the cycle and nutrients return back to the soil #compost #composting #compostingwithchickens #gardenfood #lessinthelandfill #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastehome #helpingneighbors #savetheworld #noplanetb #compostservice #freeforneighbors #savetheenvironment #earthdayeveryday #earthlove #homestead #llewellynhomestead

#sustainablesummer week 8: menstruation Yep. We went there. It makes me so happy to have a virtually waste-free period. I do get bad cramps for a few days and take ibuprofen, but I'm no longer constantly buying pads and tampons and then throwing them away. I've been using @thedivacup and @shethinx period underwear for over a year now and it's not only reduced my waste but made my period so much more comfortable. There are several menstrual cup and period underwear companies, but I only knew about these two brands at the time and have been happy with them. If you're curious about nitty gritty details of how to use and care for these items, we can get into that on the ol' instagram stories. I'd also love to hear about your experiences with any other reusable period products! #normalizethis #lowimpactliving #zerowasteliving #zerowasteperiod

Living in a fast-paced city made me realize how we often go with the more convenient option. Plastic is convenient but we already know how our excessive dependence on it has brought to us a global problem when it comes to its disposal. So, why not avoid plastic/plastic packaged products? . . Switching to plastic-free products can be hard at first but not impossible. We can start small. . 🌿Refuse the single-use straw and cutlery. 🌿Bring your own tumbler. 🌿Switch to a bamboo toothbrush. . . Products shown on photo: Silicone Straw (P70/P90 with brush), Foldable Silicone Tumbler (P300), Foldable Cutlery Set with pouch (P150), and Bamboo Toothbrush (P50). { #ImagoDeiCares #ImagoDeiInTheCity #ZeroWaste #ZeroWasteLiving #reuse #PlasticFreeJuly }

I bought a packet of dry biscuits the other day that where packaged in a box. I knew there would be some soft plastic in there but when I opened it up a pile of individually wrapped packets fell out. 🤷‍♀️ so from now on I’ll make my own. Test one. Successful delicious vegan dry biscuits. So of course I whipped up some hummus to go with them. They are so good I’ll probably have to make more tomorrow. #yum #kitchenplasticdetox #noplastic #zerowastefood #zerowasteliving #zerowastekitchen #zerowastefamily

{reuse coffee grounds} I received a great tip from @briony28 about drying out coffee grounds in the oven and adding extra virgin coconut oil to prolong the storage life of your coffee scrub naturally. I just did 30 minutes at 200C fan-forced. 🌻 I’m making more of my Rejuvenating Coffee Body Scrub today to take to a Low Tox Home Wellness Workshop I am hosting for @s.o.o.o.p.h.i.e. 🌻 If you’d like to host a Workshop and learn about how essential oils can replace traditional household cleaners, reducing the toxic load for your family considerably, then drop me a line. There are also amazing incentives you can earn to start your oil collection. 🌻 This body scrub is absolutely fantastic, I shared it a week ago, so if you haven’t seen it, scroll down and find it. I have to make so much of it now as my husband has discovered it and loves using it as much as I do!!! I’m trying to find people to make coffees for so I can use the grounds! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #zerowasteliving #zerowaste #holisticlifestyle #holistic #holistichealth #lowtox #lowtoxliving #lowtoxlife #doterra #doterralife #doterralove #oilylife

IDK if it will qualify as a zero waste idea but check out my background... It's a comic book cut-out curtain. It's so cute! ⭐ For art projects! Been vacationing in 🇮🇩 for #WTF18 and as my previous travel, my #zerowasteliving wasn't at its peak!!! Esp at the fest where you can't bring refillable bottles and everything was packed and bought at the venue!!! But in fairness to @we.the.fest , they had some recycling bins spread out to remind people to be more conscious with their garbage. Unfortunately it wasn't observed well (if at all). It broke my heart to see so many plastics... Even getting in required using plastic... Ohmy!!! I hope the organizers rethink the plastics for next year!!!

Here’s a little peak at my bathroom cupboard. As close to zero waste as I can make it - and still hoping to get closer! : Top shelf: @baranynaturals soaps, gorgeous as always😊 . Bamboo toothbrush case, fits mine & my partner’s toothbrushes together in one for traveling. : Middle shelf: A tin I found in an op shop, used to contain a Fossil watch, and happens to be the perfect size to carry the soap bars. A spoon for easy application of toothpowder (see spice jar) onto my bamboo toothbrush. Compostable dental floss. Solid face cleanser and solid shampoo - the best 😊 : Bottom shelf: Menstrual cup inside its cute pouch. Medication - that’s a tricky one for being zero waste, I’d love to find refillable jars of loose tablets like I once saw in a pharmacy in Africa. And to finish, my favourite recent discovery: I can make my own bandaids! 100% cotton gauze (cotton = compostable), in paper packaging. Tied it onto my cut finger with a reusable tie - happy days! : Zero-wastify your bathroom cupboard! It makes me and my landfill bin smile 😊 Link in bio ↖️ : #wastefree #minimizewaste #goingzerowaste #wastefreeliving #sustainableliving #sustainable #saynotoplastic #zerowastelife #zerowastejourney #breakfreefromplastic #livingwastefree #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #plasticfreeliving #zerowastemovement #plasticfree #reducereuserecycle #reuse #ecoliving #waronwaste #reusable #plasticfreejuly #zerowastebathroom #lowwaste #bambootoothbrush #minimalism #circulareconomy #biodegradable #compostable

What do you use for your hair removal? (if you choose to remove your hair) Leave a comment below letting us know. 👇 #Repost @greenifyme ・・・ Challenge 12 of #GreenifyJuly : Use a safety razor! I know, as a woman, I'm supposed to use a girly pink razor marketed towards me. For a long time, I did. But honestly, it's just a money zap! A gimmick designed to make you buy more. There is a thing called the pink tax too, and that is mega real (look into it if you haven't already). I received this #safetyrazor as a birthday gift and couldn't be happier. It saves me so much money, works like a dream, and saves disposable razors from the landfill. What's not to like? 💕 . . I've had it since my birthday (so 8 months) and only had to change the blade ONCE. I have several blades stocked up so I should be good for another 8 months or so! The blades are recyclable, and when I have enough, I'm going to simply send them to my local scrap metal collection facility. You can also mail them to Albatross Shave Shop (they'll take em off your hands) so no waste is created! And of course, you keep the handle and top indefinitely to reuse over and over again. If you have more questions about shaving with safety razors, feel free to check out my blog (I wrote a whole post on this topic) - look for it under the zero waste bathroom page. 💕 . . It's important to make the switch to a safety razor when you get a chance. It's definitely a more expensive purchase but it saves you money in the long run (as most reusables do). According to the EPA, it's estimated 2 billion disable razors get thrown out every year. Please help put a stop to this! Every bit counts and your actions matter. 💕 . . Do you use a safety razor? Take a pic and use the hashtag GreenifyJuly to join in this challenge! 💖🌟 . . . #zerowaste #zerowasteshaving #plasticfree #zerowastebathroom #zerowastehome #pinktax #razorblades #goingzerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastelife #zerowastelifestyle #nomoreplastic #minimalwaste #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #noplastic

Using a hanky to blow your nose may gross you out, but let’s break it down a little… Using a hanky, paired with washing your hands frequently, could actually stop the spread of your sickness! If you used your hand to wipe your nose instead, you could easily spread your germs to everything you touch. Even using a single use tissue could result in getting germs on your hands because they are so thin and often rip when being use. Hankies are much thicker and sturdier! Of course we wash our hankies regularly to make sure that they stay clean. We love collecting bandanas from places we visit to add to our supply of hankies to use so that we can use a new one each day! ⠀ .⠀ Tag us in your photos and use #tsghplasticfree to show us how you’re eliminating plastic pollution this July! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #thesmallgreenhome #sustainable #zerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #greenliving #zerowasteliving #sustainableliving #betheexample #saveourplanet #loveourplanet #sustainability #plasticfreejuly #choosetorefuse #plasticfreejuly2018 #plasticfree #saynotoplastic #tsghplasticfree

Love coming home to a fully stocked fridge 🍎🍅🥕🍊🍌🍋🌿🥒🍇🍆 I love New York summers because there is so much amazing local in season produce. Working on a farm and at the farmer’s market plus having a CSA at Cornell’s student farm has meant no shortage of veggies for me this summer! 🌱😊 After traveling and moving around for the last year it is so grounding to finally have a space to settle down in. This is also my first time living in Ithaca while attempting to be fully zero waste. It’s been going well and I’ve loved making a lot of my own foods that I previously would have store bought like sauerkraut, nut milks, pesto, and so much more! How is your Plastic Free July going? ♻️ I used to struggle to attain perfection and then give up when I couldn’t fully do it. I’ve learned that it’s not about being perfect but just trying your best in everything you do and making little improvements one by one. I definitely did not get here overnight and I still have a long ways to go. Let me know any questions you still have about plastic free living! Would love to help out in anyway that I can x

Sometimes you have a zero waste fall and go to the grocery store without your reusable produce bags, so you go home with gross plastic ones instead. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ . Most of the time I just don’t use a bag for produce. If it has a peel, no need to cover it in anything. But broccoli seemed a little too fragile to put straight into the cart, so here we are. . The good news is that most grocery stores recycle soft plastics (the type of plastic that makes plastic bags and plastic film - your municipal recycling likely does NOT accept it). . Posting this so that everyone knows there’s grace for the process. Whether your latest process is trying to eliminate waste, eat healthy, go toxin free, etc - don’t feel like it must be done overnight. Baby steps add up to big steps, and as long as you’re consistently moving forward and doing better as you learn better, you’re doing exactly what you need to do. . . . . #compost #amblifeiscolorful #ecofriendlyproducts #positivevibesonly #happynow #simplethingsmadebeautiful #packagefree #asecondofwhimsey #thelifestylecollective #simplepleasures #trashisfortossers #savetheearth #darlingmoment #minimalmood #minimalobsessed #savetheplanet #mybeautifulmess #darlingdays #zerowastehome #dontmesswithmama #theeverygirl #zerowastelifestyle #boldbraveyou #livethoughtfully #zerowasteliving #stayhealthy #wellnesswarrior #iamwellandgood #zerowaste #compostable

I’ve been silent lately with my #zerowaste posts because my steps are getting bigger and taking longer. We are now on day 23 of a raw food diet for our dogs and it is going great! ~ I’ve researched loads and have a mix of low fat meat, organs, egg shells, omegas supplement, green tripe, egg and fish in their bowls daily.

I have extremely sensitive skin. I took prescription steroids for a number of years to combat a very severe form of eczema. Not only is my skin sensitive it had very weak layers on the places I put the medication. I am allergic to most detergents, soaps and household cleaners on the market. They give me flare ups like no other! 🌿 About 2 years ago, I started to really clean up my diet. Even though I’m vegan, I was eating a lot of processed food, high sugar, high carb and low fat. My insides were in turmoil and my outsides were reflecting that crisis. I would get embarrassed about my weeping and bleeding skin so much that I would rarely leave the house. I now know that when my body is in this state it is asking for some TLC. Putting back the nutrients in my body was a big step towards healing. 🌿 Most auto immune disorders like eczema stem from the inside out. When you can treat the root cause the symptoms generally start to alleviate. One way to help the process along and to strengthen your skin is to clean up the products you use on your body. 🌿 Your skin is a complex organ that helps eliminate toxins from the body. It craves fats, oils and simple things to absorb. The simpler the better. It wasn’t until I ate healthier, stopped using steroids and started using just one or two ingredients on my skin that I started to see a difference. It took a lot of time to find balance, but now my skin is my friend. And just like anything living, I give it the food it craves and needs. 🌿 Here I have bulk castile soap, shea butter and oil to create my own lotions and creams. I reused old kombucha and olive oil bottles when I was at the bulk store! Love your body whatever state it’s in. If something is off your body is telling you it’s needs compassion and attention. . . . #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #plasticfreejuly #ditchtheplastic #lowimpactmovement #naturaskincare #eczema #dermititis #autoimmunedisease #vegan #leakygut #candida #ecofriendly #tsw

Daily cleanse of thoughts and stuff I no longer need has become an essential to me, both in real and digital life. The more I threw away, the more I found about what really is important to me. So I realised I need clear spaces to enjoy what I have, what truly is meaningful. Want to be more intentional, need to find new inspirations, and go on new adventures. Need to reset my mind and find my place and my people on this beautiful Earth. - #declutteryourlife #intentionalism #declutter #clutter #minimalism #lifestyle #family #minimal #lessismore #stuff #decluttering #life #balance #focus #today #familylife #momlife #affirmation #positivevibes #positivity #simplicity #simplelife #simpleliving #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #changes #momof2 #thoughts #cleaning #clutterfreeliving

What's in my bag every day? ▶️ @keepcup cup for all my coffee needs ▶️ @rethink_nz produce bags from @islaandolive just in case I pop to the shops ▶️ @caliwoods_eco straws, two of them mainly for the kids ▶️And my stainless steel Oasis water bottle, to keep me hydrated. ▶️Also not pictured here but there is usually a cloth nappy or two. 💩✌️ What's in your bag?

#plasticfreejuly is coming to a close, but i hope you’ve stepped out of your comfort zone to incorporate at least one new eco-friendly habit into your life. i stepped outside of my comfort zone this month by switching from a disposable razor to a safety razor. it was a bit intimidating at first but i haven’t nicked myself once (fingers crossed i can keep this bloodless shaving experience going 🤞🏻). #zerowasteliving is a process and you can’t do it all at once, it’s difficult to make a significant lifestyle change so just do your best, keep it in mind and never beat yourself up for slipping up 🧡

what I carry around on an average day⁣ ⁣ ⁣ •⁣ ⁣ ⁣ thought I’d share since I’ve been getting conscious-living questions in my DMs (always happy to help!) quick summary is my utensil roll (I prefer this so I can swap out whatever I use for clean), a cloth bag with my snack (ya girl gets hangry), a tin with my lunch (doubles as a to-go/letfovers container), my jar (waterbottle and to-go coffee cup - I like this one because it has measures on the side), and an extra bag if I end up grabbing groceries!⁣ ⁣ It may seem like a lot but it’s pretty manageable in my opinion, especially slowly swapping one item at a time. Plus, you’ll never need to look for a trash can.⁣ ⁣ Don’t forget to look around at what you already have/ask friends/thrift. The only thing I mentioned that I actually bought is the utensil roll, and before I just shoved a fork in my backpack which was fine. The rest is shared roommate things or found/reused! You don’t need to go shopping to get started.⁣ ⁣ For more inspiration here are some of my favorite people I follow for conscious living tips:⁣ @stevieyaaaay @matchboxkitchen @zerowastefarmer @going.zero.waste @hope_endrenyi

Packing up an EarthSavvy Survival Kit (with tote bag) for Emily in East Auckland.  I love putting these kits together because I know that these products are going to result in the most massive reduction of household waste 🙌...and the value for money is 👌 Sayonara flimsy plastic bags 👋, au revoir nasty ole kitchen sponges 👋, ka kite crappy plastic lunch boxes and disposable plastic cutlery 👋...and bye bye rubbish bin 🙅‍♀️👊🙆‍♂️. Check the link in our bio to grab yourself an EarthSavvy Survival Kit and...Be Prepared for a Life Less Wasted 🌏💚✊

Did you know that we pay for packaging when buying products at the supermarket? Often up to 15-20% of the price is the packaging. When we look at it like that it seems wasteful to then just throw the packaging away. So, what’s the solution? Gather your waste free essentials - jars, bulk bin bags and produce bags and head to your local bulk food store. You will save money and in most cases get a beautiful organic product 🍃

Bioplastics are *not* a sustainable solution to disposable petroleum based plastics. Thanks to my friend @katiesenechal who did a semester research project on bioplastics, I learned that sadly these “green” “compostable” “plant” plastic alternatives actually aren’t sustainable at all. 😒 Unfortunately, we currently don’t have the infrastructure to properly compost these “compostable” plastics. Backyard composts can’t handle them and often they contaminate commercial composts making the whole load go straight to the landfill. 🚚👎 While they may biodegrade faster than regular plastic, they can still take many years to break down, easily choking an innocent turtle along the way. 🐢🐙🐬🐳 Not to mention the resources required to make them- are they using sustainable farming practices to grow the plants to make them? Sadly the answer is no and the plants are often grown using chemical fertilizers and pesticides 🙅‍♀️ Are they still better than regular plastic? Maybe the tiniest tiniest little bit aka the lesser of two evils but they are still certainly not an environmentally friendly choice. In my opinion, that little green stripe and the “eco friendly” advertising is all a bunch of greenwashing. Reusable are the way to go always 🙌♻️🌏💚 #plasticfreejuly

Before I get into diffuser blends, face mask recipes, oils that take away leg cramps and all that fun stuff, I wanted to educate you on the brand of essential oils I personally use everyday and am SO obsessed with! . Y O U N G L I V I N G✨ Sooo why young living? I had dabbled in essential oils before I came across Young Living but didn’t know how to use any of them other than diffusing them. I mean they smelled really good and all but I felt like that’s all they were, just a candle replacement! But when I found Young Living EO and started using their products and got added to special groups that helped educate you on the many many uses of their oils, I realized you can use essential oils to help pretty much any stinkin thing in your life! Whether that by something going on with your body, your emotions, a rash, headache, nausea, digestive problems, you name it! And they actually. worked. every. time. Facts about young living👇🏼 ▽they are well beyond organic! I completely trust their products to safely use, digest, and apply and so do millions of other people! Make sure you read labels about which ones should be ingested and make sure you dilute your oils before applying topically! ▽they have a seed-to-seal promise that basically says that each plant is hand-picked without pesticides, weed killers, or chemicals! How cool and safe and good for you (!!!) they also harvest plants at peak season and they go through an INTENSE testing process so only the best are used for us! ▽they offer the besssst discounts and rewards for just using their oils!! Ya only gotta spend $50 a year to be a member and get a 24% discount like whaaaat?? . DM me if you have annny more questions cause I could talk all day long about how amazing these products are! Lololol

The amount of people who went on this hike was CRAZY and yet I barely found any trash on the hike! It was incredible to see what taking care of the trail can look like if you leave with the trash you came with.

So stoked to finally take this step!!

Post number #111 You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and shoves you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee?* "Well because someone bumped into me, of course!" Wrong answer. You spilled the coffee because coffee was in the cup. If tea had been in it, you would have spilled tea. Whatever is inside the cup is what will come out. Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen), whatever is inside of you will come out. It's easy to fake it until you get rattled. So we have to ask ourselves....what's in my cup? When life gets tough, what spills over? Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility? Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and actions? *You choose!* Today let's work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation to yourself and others, kindness, gentleness and love... We are like water ,we decide the shape we are in 💦🌎♻️🦋
