Yesterday, my lovely friend came all the way Glasgow to visit us here in Birmingham for the weekend. One of our plans was to visit Canon Hill Park and what a lovely, green and lively place it was. As we were walking through the park I spotted this bridge and ran to the edge of the pond to take a photo. Only after I started carefully looking around and noticed that the previously so idyllic looking pond was actually filled with rubbish (all the white speckles in the photos are pieces of rubbish). What a truly saddening view. I have previously mentioned in my stories that out of all the cities and towns I have seen in the UK, Birmingham is by far the dirtiest - there is rubbish everywhere, in every street and green area alike. In fact, in the neighbouring house in our street someone is chucking rubbish out of their kitchen window as if we still lived in the Middle Ages. Something needs to be done @bhamcitycouncil. People and businesses need to be educated and helped to dispose waste correctly, and the council really needs to step up its game. This park has apparently been awarded a Green Flag Award, but that must have been a good while back.. apologies for this very negative rant - I will end with a more positive message to @bhamcitycouncil : hire me, if you need a creative and passionate graduate to help make this a greener zero waste city. 🙋🏼‍♀️
The treasury is listening after the public speak out against plastics in record numbers! Thank you @surfersagainstsewage & @hugotagholm for representing us and lobbying so hard! 👏 #plasticfree #goplasticfree #notplastic #plasticpollution #plasticfreeoceans #Repost @robertjenrick ・・・ Announcing the Treasury’s commitment to using tax to tackle plastic pollution with @surfersagainstsewage on #Perranporth beach - Our call for evidence received an unprecedented 162,000 responses, with massive public support for using the tax system to encourage recycling and reduce dependence on single use plastics. We’ll be setting out our plans in detail at the Budget this autumn. #PlasticPollution #Plastics #Recycling #Environment

The veggie patch might have been mightily neglected this year 😖 (and going overseas for 2 months in prime Autumn planting weather did not help at all😶) but nature is a generous force, and she still continues to provide.🌱🌱🌱 Currently picking capsicums (smaller than would be expected in summer, but as it's the middle of winter❄, I'll take it!) and cape gooseberries (inca berries, for anyone who knows them as this from the health food store). I've also got lemons🍋, a couple of pumpkins, so much parsley I'm pretty much living off parsley pesto, sweet potato (of course!)🍠 and a bunch of rather chewed stems of various greens - I suspect crickets, but cannot find the greedy pests. Whoever it is has even eaten my curry leaf plant leaves🍂 - and they are pretty pungent!
DIY snack bags made with HEMP liners! Today I found the cuuuutest fabric store here in Waterloo @spoolandspindle who carried hemp fabric (and has awesome, very knowledgeable staff)! These snack bags are not waterproof but bags that are, are almost always made with laminated fabric or PUL aka polyurethane laminate which is a plastic polymer. Even if it’s BPA free, food grade, phthalate free etc, it’s still a plastic coated fabric which means it will leach chemicals and won’t break down when it finally reaches the dump. Hemp, on the other hand, is a natural, absorbent, strong, hypoallergenic, sustainable fibre that also has antimicrobial properties and is mildew resistant! #goplasticfree #plasticfreelunch #sustainablefabric #plasticleaches #bpafreeisnotplasticfree #healthyliving #naturopathicdoctor #naturopathicmom
Oh how much I enjoyed my visit at @tanteolgakoeln - THE zero waste shop in Cologne. The team was so nice and took time to assist & explain, I found many things I was looking for, enjoyed a nice coffee and the total of 4 hours bike ride to get there and back 🚴🏻‍♀️💪🏻💚. I already guessed that I would buy a lot of heavy stuff and therefore took the bicycle trailer with me - luckily 😂. I found bathroom supplies, many snacks, different flours, fresh almond cream, vegan cream cheese and cleaning supplies. . . Ach war das schön heute bei @tanteolgakoeln - DEM Unverpackt Laden in Köln. Das Team war so hilfsbereit und hat sich Zeit genommen fürs Erklären, ich habe viele Dinge gefunden auf die ich gehofft hatte, habe einen leckeren Kaffee und die insgesamt 4 Stunden Fahrradtour für meinen Weg hin und zurück genossen 🚴🏻‍♀️💪🏻💚. Weil ich schon ahnte, dass ich ne Menge schwerer Dinge kaufen würde, bin ich inkl. Kinderanhänger gefahren - es hat sich gelohnt 😂. Neben Badutensilien hab ich bei den Snacks zugeschlagen sowie Mehlsorten, frische Mandelcreme, veganen Kräuterfrischkäse und Reinigungsmittel gekauft. @originalunverpackt #unverpackt #zerowaste #refuse #allnatural #bio #noplasticplease #bicycle #nopollution #conciousconsumer #letsreducewaste #musclepower #waronwaste #goplasticfree #plasticfree #plastikfrei #Köln #packagefree #choosetorefuse #organic #bambootoothbrush #vegan #bulk #bulkshopping

Just a reminder to bring your own reusable cup! It doesn’t have to be expensive, it can even be from goodwill or an old jar you have at home! You can find the lids for the jars at target and Walmart and most placed are carrying straws. • • • Even if you drink soda most gas stations have a soda fountain and they don’t care if you use your own cup. I’ve used mine at subway and even the movie theater. • • • Think about how many disposable cups you use daily and how all those just go in the landfill, plastic doesn’t just disappear. It doesn’t go away and it is causing such devastation on this earth. I ask you please get a reusable cup and please help reduce the amount of plastic you consume, if you love this earth and loving being out in all its glory please make the switch to reusable. ✨ • • • • #giveashit #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreeoceans #zerowaste #reducereuserecycle #vegan #takecareofmotherearth #veganfortheplanet #goplasticfree #pnw #mcminnville #newberg
Loved these water fountains. So easy to get a water refill in Venice. 🇮🇹
Last week, I was introduced to the word “Climatarian” by the wonderful @liveconscious_... . I literally could not be more glad or more grateful that there are others out there like me struggling to explain what exactly my diet is (definitely not “occasional vegan” FYI - fully aware that’s not a thing). . A climatarian diet is one that has the primary goal of reversing climate change - and includes eating locally produced food, reducing meat and dairy consumption and limiting food waste. . Hallelujah 🙏🏽. Please can we normalise this word as much as possible so we can all stop explaining how we’re sort of vegetarians who try to eat as plant based as much as possible but would maybe eat some types of fish if we really had to but we also don’t buy stuff wrapped in loads of plastic and also compost as much as possible whilst avoiding Mexican avocados and almonds and palm oil and quinoa etc etc etc. . THANK YOU. . Also, if you fancy reading what I, and many others, have to say about the claim that veganism is a “fad” driven by instagram, head to the link in my bio... . . . . . . . . . #consciousliving #climatarian #climatariansofig #vegetarian #vegandiet #veganism #vegan #vegetariandiet #flexitarian #flexitarien #sustainableliving #sustainability #sustainable #ethicalliving #ethical #journeytozerowaste #zerowaste #organicliving #thinkglobal #thinkglobalactlocal #goplasticfree #plasticfreeliving #zerowastehome #nomoreplastic #plastictax
My audiobooks are the reason I look forward to the daily commute! I love books that you can learn from and change the way you think. Hoping to understand more about the plastic pandemic with this book from Lucy Siegle @theseagull (good name! 😂). Does anybody have a good book to recommend for the wish list? I loved Sapiens by Yuval Noah Hurari. #bookworm #audiobook #bookstagram #zerowaste #saynotoplastic #oceanplastic #passonplastic #reusables #uselessplastic #goplasticfree #plasticfree #savetheocean #plasticpollution #fortheoceans #saveourseas #vegan #straws #reusablestraw #reusable #stainlesssteelstraw #nomoreplastic #environment #eco #ecofriendly #reuse #nowaste #zerowastelifestyle

So excited I just got these stainless steel straws yesterday. Doing something as small as using reusable straws rather than plastic ones can make a huge impact in changing the world 🌎. Think about the animals 🐙🐟🐢🐬 that eat plastic thinking it's food. They end up dying and leaving behind the same plastic. #savingtheplanet #goplasticfree #zerowastejourney #makethechange #reusablestraws #stainlesssteelstraws
We do might get help from nature itself to beat plastic pollution. With the EU funded project GoJelly, researchers from German Geomar Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research and partners worldwide are willing to find jellyfish with a talent for catching microplastics. Their mucus could operate as a biofilter to stop plastic particles from being released into the sea. However that turns out till 2021, it sounds like an innovative starting point… There is hope. 🐙 . . . . . 📷Tony Reid #beatthemicrobead #stopplastic #goplasticfree #plasticpollutes #plasticpollution #microplastics #jellyfish #nature #plasticwaste #plastikmüll #plastikfrei #goflustix #innovation #science #plasticsolution #materialrevolution #mucus #gelatine #filter #eufunds #geomarhelmholtzcenter #sintefocean #universityofhaifa
WHY RECYCLING PLASTIC DOESN'T (REALLY) WORK... #goplasticfree People are told to recycle and if they do, they often think problems are solved right after their trash gets into a proper recycle bin. This may be true for paper, glass, metal but not for plastic. Plastics are often downcycled into inferior products or sometimes recycled into different products with unintended consequences. - Reports say that 9% of all plastic produced was recycled, while 12% was burned and remaining 79% ended up in landfills or elsewhere (oceans, streets, you name it). - There are several reasons why plastic is not recycled. It starts with people reluctant to sort their waste, another problem is that not all plastic is profitable to recycle while making new is cheaper. In countries with high labor cost is it more economical to burn it while making electricity or heat. Long story short, plastic has many forms and characteristics that make recycling process complex and difficult. - Producers need to be responsible and products design needs to include recycling part - what will happen when product is consumed, broken or obsolete. - Depending on our consumer habits, we can shop more of less easily plastic free which is always the best. Fortunately, we can do more then blindly buying plastic and trashing in into recycle bin. 🌱 - How does your country deal with waste? 🙄 - Pic by Fred Dufour #planetorplastic #plasticfree #reuse #reduce #recycle #plasticpollution #zerowaste #noplastic #nowaste #lessplastic #plasticwaste #plasticfree #passonplastic #nomoreplastic #ecology #eco #ecofriendly #environment #proudlyeco
This year we've committed to reducing our use of plastic wherever possible... and for the women of Wholesome Hub, that means #PlasticFreePeriods too! Natracare is a new brand at Wholesome Hub, providing women with soft, certified organic biodegradable cotton pads, tampons and liners that are free from chlorine bleaches and plastic.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can everyone think when getting rid of rubbish, make sure plastics are recycled where possible or even try going plastic free? The beaches in Bali are such a state with all the plastics, it’s so sad 😢 we need to start taking care of our oceans, the corals, turtles, fish etc. This is just a tiny fraction of the rubbish we saw on the beach today whilst exploring. Wish we could have collected more to clear the beaches but we’d have been there forever. @lauraalexavocalist #recycle #goplasticfree #saveouroceans #savethesealife
I would rather be that weird girl who avoids plastic than be the reason another animal gets killed for my convenience. Who's side are you on? #ditchplastic #goplasticfree • • • #Repost @rogermillancasas
To shop without plastic is very easy. You can get anything you need without plastic package just by paying a bit of attention to what you choose. Bringing your own bag, choosing glass over plastic, refusing double package for fruits and veggies (they are already naturally packed) you can make a huge difference. Giving a priority to the future instead of to satisfying your momentary impulses or short term convenience, you are giving a chance for life to many creatures, including your own offspring. This world has many problems to solve, but it's not something to be afraid of. Small steps make great changes. Just starting somewhere can be a small stone causing an avalanche. Life without plastic is possible because it's just natural. #wastezero #lifewithoutplastic #plasticfree #plasticfreesociety #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreejourney #plasticfreeaugust #goplasticfree #savetheearth #saynotoplastic #notoplastic #reducewaste #reduceplastic #sustanableliving #plasticfreegrocery #gozero #plasticfreerussia #savetheplanet #earthisourhome #ourplanetdaily #ourplanetourhome #shoppinglocal #sustanability #zerowastejourney #mygroceries #bringstarsbacktosky #reduceyourimpact #reduceyourfootprint #0waste
Day 15: Glass and Stainless-steel containers for our food. As of 2018 this household adopted a #plasticfree policy for food containers 😊💪🏼. We started a slow but steady transition to replace old plastic containers. In the process, we’ve come to realize that glass can be used in the oven, freezer and fridge! It doesn’t get stained, it doesn’t bend, it doesn’t keep odors, it doesn’t peel off, and it doesn’t wear out! Who ever said plastic was more practical? 🤨 If you worry about weight for your to-go’s then stainless steel is a much better alternative to plastic too. Primarily because plastic also leaks chemicals into your food and beverages, and even more so when being warmed up 🔥 Here the lunchbox from @planetbox that our son will use in school. If you think about the cost, plastic might be cheaper but needs to be constantly replaced and is made from non-renewable resources that will go sit in a landfill or in the wild for EVER if not properly recycled!!! How about that for a cost? 🤔 If glass brakes it can ALWAYS be reused! (Please recycle ♻️); the best principle of a circular economy that we so need to be sustainable consumers and producers! 👌🏻🙌🏻🌿🌍 #goplasticfree #consciouslifestylebaby #yayforearth #chemicalfreeliving #21daychallenge @waterthruskin @thefaria

Who else loves scented candles? Well, I do too. 😉Recently, however, I have become more aware of the amount of waste that candles (too) generate. A good while back I decided to first of all use less candles and second, to only buy and use scented candles that come in a recyclable or - even better - in a reusable container, like this candle. It is now a jar for corn flour! . . The easiest way to get rid of any leftover wax in and old candle glass or metal container is to get some boiling hot water, put it in a pot and stick the container in there, but don’t let water get inside the jar to avoid wax getting into the water! After a minute or two, the wax should have melted enough to just pour it out of the jar. After that I washed it well with soap and hot water to make sure all wax was gone. And then filled it with some corn flour. I think I will only store dry foods in the jar, just to be safe 😘

They are beautiful and they eat plastic... sounds good? The bad side of the news: The Marphysa sanguinea marine worms not only get damaged and the wider marine ecosystem too, but they are pooping out the styrofoam again in the form of tiny microplastics. Scientists of the Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology found that they excrete 1600 particles per day. And we know by now what that means... it affects everything. . . . . . #beatthemicrobead #stopplastic #goplasticfree #plasticpollutes #plasticpollution #microplastics #marineworms #ecosystem #pooping #plasticwaste #plastikmüll #plastikfrei #goflustix #flustixnoplastics #savetheocean #savetheplanet

This gorgeous collection of soaps were sent to me by @primalsuds to try out. They’re U.K. based and make vegan soaps that are free from nasties. I’m loving one without any scent for removing my make up, and the others smell amazing, but not overpowering like synthetic scents. The one I’m using in the shower smells of sherbet and is less drying than many soaps I’ve tried. I’ve almost finished my oat exfoliating soap so it’s great to have one that I can now move onto. These all came completely plastic free and my skin seems to be really happy with them so far! If you’re looking for some new soaps, especially if you’re from the U.K., think about checking them out. But as always, only buy if you really need them 😊 #ad #goplasticfree #refusesingleuse #zerowaste #zerowastelondon #zerowasteuk #choosetorefuse #reducewhatyouproduce #refusesingleuseplastics #refusereducereuserecycle
I am addicted to lip balm, especially now that it is getting colder again, slowly but surely... I absolutely love those round, almost egg-shaped, colourful @eosproducts lipbalms, but the container is so plasticky that there is probably more plastic than lip balm in the product - and the same goes for many other lip balms out there. Luckily there are quite a few plastic free alternatives available. I have previously tried a lovely one from @wasserneutral and now decided to buy this @bloomtownuk lipbalm to try. It is light and not sticky, 100% natural and vegan, palm oil free and smells b-e-a-utiful. 🍓❤️ And of course it comes in a recyclable metal container. Even these small changes make a difference! #plasticfreerevolution

Cookies! 🍪🍪🍪 These little nuggets are one of my go-to recipes, made of...chickpeas! 😜 240g cooked chickpeas (the equivalent of a tin), 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup rice malt syrup/honey (probably a bit less if you use maple syrup as it is runnier than the others) and a couple of pinches of salt. Blend to combine then stir through 75g chopped chocolate. Roll into balls (I like to keep mine tiny so I don't feel so guilty when I eat 6 at once 🙊) and bake on a medium heat for 10-15 minutes until beginning to turn golden. You can use almond butter instead of peanut butter, and I'm sure other nut butters would work too but those are my faves. Yum! 😋

This is such a heartbreaking and horrible image to see of a hedgehog which died after it got stuck inside a disposable cup 😭💔 However, it's important that people realise the consequences of their actions! . . Everyday wildlife all over the world is dying because of litter and plastic pollution. It's such a huge issue and yet it's just ONE of the reasons why we need to do something about it 🙅 This is NOT OK! . . Hedgehogs and other small mammals are particularly at risk of being affected by litter because of their size. Hedgehog numbers have already significantly declined in recent years, so we need to make sure that plastic pollution isn't contributing to this decline! We should be giving wildlife every chance of survival, not killing them with thoughtless actions! 🙈 . . It can be easy to feel helpless in situations like this but every person has their role to play in fighting against plastic pollution >> Get involved in litter picks and beach cleans, reduce your own plastic consumption, educate others about the impacts of dropping litter and plastic pollution. We can all make a difference! 💪🏼Do it for wildlife, Do it for yourself, Do it for David! 👊 . #doitfordavid #saveourwildlife #plasticpollution #plasticnotfantastic #dontbeatosser #waronplastic #dontdroplitter #needforchange #bethechange #waronwaste #cleanupyouract

We dropped into the allotment this afternoon to grab some kale for the bunnies. While there, we also checked the exciting progress of our sweetcorns, spotted stripey tomatoes developing, harvested and immediately ate some raspberries (they were covered in hungry shield beetles, one of whom befriended Master R) and did a quick wheelbarrow of weeding. The strimmer broke in June, so it's all gone a bit wild this summer. Typically, I have shredded the receipt so I can't return it. I optimistically took it apart, thinking if it was a loose wire I could put it right. It wasn't a loose wire, and I haven't managed to get if back together ... yet. 🙄 #allotmentlife #harvesttime #growyourown #zerofoodmiles #goplasticfree

Soap bars - One very pleasant side effect of going plastic free is falling in love with bar soaps and there are many wonderful ones out there to fall for. My boyfriend and I have now totally swapped over to using soap and shampoo bars and so far they have been good to my skin and hair, really fun to use and they have given me a cleaner conscience. They also make your bathroom smell great! What is your favourite bar soap? . . Since my boyfriend stole my soap and shampoo bars, I decided to buy him some of his own from a new natural and plastic free brand @conchuslife. I also got a shampoo bar and a face wash bar for myself to try. The bars smell lovely and, as you can see in the photo, they are also very generous in size. Looking forward to trying them out!

💭🎶 Imagine if there was a band who went around touring festivals like Glastonbury, except rather than singing about the usual rock 'n' roll kinda things, they sang memorable rhymes about plastic and waste🚯, growing vegetables🌱, sustainable living 🌏, and making kimchi!😋 Actually there is such a band - Formidable Vegetable Sound System - headed up by my friend Charlie McGee (that's him, singing about plastic - I defy you not to get that song stuck in your head!😝). This is probably my second favourite song of theirs (my absolute favourite is There's No Such Thing As Waste - go to YouTube and type the title track in and look it up. It's like the theme tune for my life!😍🚯✅) They are currently crowdsourcing to produce their new album (you'll find the link and more details at @formidableveg 👈) If you are someone who believes in supporting independent musicians🎤, spreading the sustainability message and you like listening to songs about reducing waste and making fermented vegetables, be sure to check them out! 💚

It just takes small little changes every day in our choices to make a difference. Going Green is not an overnight fix. Its recognising that we can go back to living a far simpler, environmentally friendly, life. And once you start, it becomes so addictive. I am saving so much money by making or recycling and not purchasing new things. I am losing weight by walking everywhere. I am proud of all the things I am learning to make. And I feel powerful to know I dont need to rely on retailer's anymore.

Biodegradable cotton bud. You pay that little extra but there’s less harm done to our marine wildlife and our Mother Earth. ⠀ ⠀ 🧘‍♀️⠀ ⠀ A plastic cotton bud takes a whopping 400 years to decompose. That’s some years isn’t it? ⠀ ⠀ 🧘‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Those who like seafood - how would you like to find a cotton bud in your food? Would it turn your tummy?............ It would me! ⠀ ⠀ 🧘‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Humans need to stop destroying our planet and it’s wildlife. ⠀ If humans don’t make changes there won’t be any planet left for humans to destroy. ⠀ ⠀ 🧘‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Make the change - go plastic free! ⠀ ⠀ 🤗💜🤗💜🤗💜🤗💜🤗💜🤗⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #PlasticFreeJuly #plasticfree #lookafterourplanet#biodegradable #cottonbuds#fibromitemomma #spooniehome_edmom #Fibromialgia #mentalhealth #spoonie #abusesurvivor #plasticsucks #plasticfree #saynotoplastic #savethemarinelife #breakfreefromplastic #saynotoplastic #goplasticfree
