Happy Friday 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋 #Repost from the amazing @ecowithem_ ・・・ Food waste is a major problem. In Australia over 8 million tonnes of food waste gets sent to landfill. Once it’s there it breaks down and produces greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane. Carbon dioxide is of course the climate change buzz gas but let’s not forget our old mate methane which is 25 times more potent than CO2 😱. In fact to quote the legends at Watch My Waste the amount of emissions produced each year is the equivalent of Australia’s iron ore and steel industries combined. That’s a whole lotta stinky stuff! 🤭 What if there was a different way? Where we not only stopped wasting so much, but also got smarter with the waste that was produced. Used it in a way that extends its life, diverts resources that would otherwise be needed for things (like fire lighters, cosmetics or cleaning products, see above). It’s just plain common sense. And of course it sucks that the younger generation has inherited a whole lot of global problems but when the world gives you lemons... you might as well make some stuff! 🍋
Wanna know a good party hack? Instead of buying bagged ice from the grocery store, stock up on ice a few days before you’re having people over. _ Simply fill up as many ice trays as you have (I have 3), freeze them over, and empty the contents into a bowl or container. Keep the container in your freezer and keep refilling your ice trays and emptying the frozen cubes into the container until you have enough for your party. _ This not only eliminates the plastic waste usually associated with entertaining, but it also saves you money since you don’t have to buy ice. Plus, it saves you a trip to the store, which is another huge bonus. _ Do you have any sustainable party hacks of your own?

Researchers found that 20% of American contact wearers throw their contacts down the drain or flush them down the toilet. That's a total of 30 billion contacts every year. These lenses then break down into micro plastics and get eaten by marine life. It's estimated that sea food eaters consume 11,000 tiny pieces of plastic per year! #Repost @leafico #Seafood #PlasticOcean #Seafoodie #Seafoodjunkie #Seafoodaddict #MicroPlastic #PlasticFreeOceans #PlasticFree #PlasticWaste #BanPlastic #ZeroWasteLiving #PlasticFreeLiving #SustainableBrand #SustainableLiving #SingleUse #RefuseSingleUse #PassOnPlastic #BanPlastic #StopPlasticPollution #CleanOceans #cleanoceansprojectindia
#selfcare - what does that mean to you? To me, it means making something crappy just a bit more joy filled, literally. When you live in a house full of boys, you’re going to be swabbing that toilet bowel. A lot. When it’s time to replace the ‘ol plastic loo cleaner, know there are beautiful #plasticfree options out there that can elevate your game. It’s my “chop-wood-carry-water” concept of finding the joy, somehow. Even if that’s by investing in a beautiful toilet brush. This one is @irishantverk 🚽✨
TOFU SCRAMBLE! How to.... - Buy some delicious sourdough from @flourandco_ - Dice up garlic and chilli - Start cooking in a wok with coconut oil - Add mushrooms and grated firm tofu - Add a small spoon of curry powder, some salt and pepper, a big scoop of nutritional yeast flakes & squirt in some tamari. - Right at the end add baby spinach and fresh lemon juice. - If you have cherry tomatoes or zucchini, include those as they work well in this dish. - Spread a nice amount of avo 🥑 or some cashew cheese on your toasted sourdough and top with the scrambled tofu. 🌿Sorry the recipe is vague, I never measure when I'm cooking 😋 📦Remember to order your box of organic produce with us before the end of Saturday! 🙏 . . . . #organic #organicfruit #organicproduce #recycle #environmentalist #reducefoodmiles #vegan #whatveganseat #supportsmallbusiness #supportlocal #plasticfree #saynotoplastic #sustainableliving #centralcoastnsw #centralcoastliving #organiclunch #organicveggies #organicvegboxdelivery #organicveggieboxdelivery #organicveggieboxes #plasticfreeliving #centralcoastveganguide #centralcoastvegans #tofuscramble #veganfoodporn #whatveganseat
*CAUTION TRIGGER WARNING. Marine Life Sadness!!! 💔🐢 . . When Karen and myself went for a skate yesterday we came across this beautiful big mumma, stranded. All dired up. Alone. On full display. With a plastic bag wrapped around her intestines 😭😭 it was one of the most saddest horrid things I've encounted while at the beach. I gave her some love, a proper goodbye and covered her poor beautiful lifeless face.. Guys this is just a minuscule impact that plastic bags, bottles or any type of rubbish can have on our marine life. We are so blessed to have these beauties just a short drive or walk away from us. Please PLEASE put your rubbish in the bin!!!!! R.I.P Mumma ❤❤ xxx . . #marinelife #greenpiece #sad #dead #turtle #nature #poorbaby #nationalgeographic #oceanlife #sealife #plasticsucks #plasticfreeoceans #plasticfree #nomoreplastic #plasticfreeliving #globalwarming #ocean #mumma #plasticpollution #pollution #pollutionfree #ourworld #mothernature #earth #weloveyou
Change starts with each and every one of us. As a collective of individuals we can make a difference by implementing small changes in our own lives. Everytime you make a small change, not only is that change making a difference, but in the process you are influencing others. Never give up. Teach by example. If people see you with a reusable straw they might ask questions as to why. Same goes for reusable coffee cups. Talk to them about it. I had my whole work team purchasing reusable coffee cup after a few conversations. It took some recouragement for them to remember to use it everyday, but eventually it became habit for them too. Don't think you can't make a difference, because together we can! . . #PlasticFree #SaveThePlanet #LowImpact #SayNoToPlastic #ReduceReuseRecycle #AvoidSingleUsePlastic #SingleUsePlastic #PlasticWaste #ZeroWaste #PlasticOrPlanet #NoExcuseForSingleUse #Sustainable #PlasticPollution #RefusePlastic #UseLessPlastic #BeTheChange #BeatPlasticPollution #RefuseTheStraw #PlasticFreeLiving #WasteFree #NoMorePlastic #ChooseToReuse #ZeroWasteLife #SustainableLiving #OurPlanetOurHome #EnvironmentallyFriendly #WarOnWaste #ReusableCup
It's so wonderful to have a great supportive husband making these recycled Australian timber jewellery boxes to help us become plastic free. We are making everything ourselves.

Twinning with the same type of breakfast from another store! BYO success this time because this collapsible container looks steadier than the silicon pouch I presented previous time. I will take whatever works. . Been in a rut because no matter how I try to reduce waste at home, my family members seem to bring in more trash everyday. Some days I just want to give up. But nah, I’m not a quitter. ✌🏼- WS #zerowastesg #IBringMyOwnSG #recyclemorewasteless #plasticfreeliving #waronwaste

👉Plastic never goes away. 👉Plastic is a material made to last forever, yet 33% of all plastic - water bottles, bags and straws - are used just once and thrown away. 👉Plastic cannot biodegrade; it breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces.

Using purpose built biodegradable resin extruders, a BF Series Resin is extracted from the combination of corn starch, biodegradable ingredients, and some propriety elements. From this resin, blown film bags are then formed in a range of styles, sizes and thicknesses. We design the bags specifically for customer convenience, and to our unique, strict minimum standards of thickness for durability. The blown film bags are then printed with soy-based, non-toxic printing inks, and packaged in a wide variety of options. We are really proud that through re-engineering this purpose-built equipment, our liners are made with significantly less electricity consumption, compared to manufacturing on conventional extrusion equipment.

What are single-use plastics? (Part 1) . . Single-use plastics, also called disposable plastics, are plastic products designed and made with the intention of it only being used once before it’s tossed out or recycled. . . Some common items are; grocery bags, packaging, straws, cutlery, cups, container and bottles. These are items that we’ve all used before and most likely on a regular, if not daily bases. . .

Skip the Plastic Norwalk is collecting signatures to support a plastic check out bag ban in the City of Norwalk. We currently have petitions in two locations: Brendan’s 101, 101 Rowayton Ave, Rowayton And Harbor Harvest, 7 Cove Ave, East Norwalk The City of Norwalk disposes of over 31 million plastic bags each year. As of October 1, these bags are no longer recyclable in your blue bins. The amount of energy required to make 12 plastic bags could drive a car for a mile. Please add your name to the petition. Individually we are a drop; together we are an ocean. #byobag #skiptheplasticnorwalk #byonorwalk #choosetoreuse #plasticfreeliving #planetorplastic #norwalkct #norwalk #connecticut #longislandsound @harborharvest @brendans101 @203cares

Apparently the temperature is suppose to drop like 20 degrees between today’s high and tomorrow’s high. Global warming is freaking scary, people. 😬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I won’t launch into that topic (yet) but for today let’s just acknowledge that our thermometer said the outside temperature was 104 degrees! 🔥 So until that temperature actually drops we’re going to keep eating like it’s the middle of summer, because it feels like it is. Plus - look at this freaky fresh watermelon?? How could you resist? Also, a little mint and lime to dress it up (and eat) is so amazing. Lime because I love all things citrus and mint because it’s basically the only herb I can keep alive. #nogreenthumb 🌿
This is not acceptable.

listened to gwenyth paltrow interview oprah on the first @goop podcast last night. she's the wisest owl and I couldn't help but write down everything she said. here's one of many diamonds of wisdom I wrote down "The reason why people's lives get so complicated is because you're trying to live it for somebody other than yourself. That is the key. Make it simple, you just start doing it for yourself." 💎
Algunas de las imágenes más divertidas con los voluntarios de nuestro último #fluyetrip a Agramía, junto a @lossinagua. 😋✌️🌱 En esta oportunidad construimos 2 atrapanieblas; estos funcionan capturando las gotas microscópicas de agua contenidas en la neblina y a través de la condensación abastecen de agua a quienes cuentan con las facilidades para acceder a esta necesidad básica. ♥️ A lo largo de este proyecto hemos logrado construir 6 atrapanieblas en el poblado, lo que representa un abastecimiento de 24000 litros de agua al día.💧💪 Gracias por todo el apoyo, continuaremos trabajando en más proyectos para poder ayudar a más peruanos cada día. 🤝 #fluyeayudando . . . . #fluyebottle #concienciaambiental #aguaparatodos #peruanosconagua #waterscarcity #basicneeds #sustainable #sustainableliving #teamwork #plasticfreeliving #nomasplastico #saveplanetearth #oceancleanup #stopplasticpollution #waterislife

We should know by now that plastic is NOT the bad guy here. It didn't just happen out of the blue, it wasn't thrown away to the landfill on its own, and it didn't purposely clog waters and feed itself to poor animals. It shouldn't be anywhere else without OUR help. And we have the choice to do better each day. Are we going to bring more plastic to the world today, or are we going to do better? 🍃 - Photo by #jakobhunosøe . . . . . . . . . . #lessplastic #reducewaste #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #sustainableliving #ecobags #lesswaste #mindfullysustainable #plasticsucks #planetorplastic #gogreen #greenliving #bethechange #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #reducewaste #reduceplastic #zerowasteph #zerobasura #banthebag #stopsucking #almostzerowaste #ourplanetourhome #saynotoplastic #waystozerowaste #zerowastegoals #lesswaste #ecofriendly
HELL YEAH Catherine McKenna! Here's a snippet from this article written by Michael Gorman from the CBC: . . . "As part of Ottawa's move toward zero plastic waste, McKenna said federal government operations will be reusing and recycling at least 75 per cent of all of its plastic garbage by 2030. "We can't just be talking about what everyone else needs to do. We need to be taking action," McKenna said during a news conference. The effort means Ottawa will aim to eliminate plastic straws, cups, cutlery, packaging and bottles from its operations. It also includes using government purchasing power to lead change, said McKenna... In addition, on Thursday a group of companies including Unilever Canada, Walmart Canada, Ikea Canada and Loblaws joined non-government groups to announce a coalition dedicated to finding ways to use plastic rather than throwing it away." . . . That's the kind of change our governments need to be taking! It's a smaller step than I would like, but it's a massive step compared to other governments who are putting their heads in the sand. We are in a crisis that our own species has caused. Kudos to Catherine McKenna, the government of Canada, and the various corporations who are finally acknowledging their impact on our environment. This issue is far from over but clearly demonstrates how important it is to lead by example. Demand change and change will come. Keep up the great work my friends. 💚 . . . . . #zerowaste #zerowastecanada #zerowastemovement #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastelife #ditchplastic #ditchdisposables #stopusingplastic #fuckplastic #wasteless #makelesstrash #makelesswaste #bethechangeyouwanttosee #bethechange #standupforwhatsright #standupforwhatyoubelievein #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreeforthesea #plasticfreeoceans #canada #governmentofcanada #changeisgood #reducewhatyouproduce #reducewaste #reducereuserecycle #environment #environmentallyconscious #savetheplanet

Plastic #6 - Polystyrene (PS) is a petroleum-based plastic that can either be hard or used in the form of Styrofoam. Polystyrene is found in packaging materials, insulation, disposable utensils, CD and DVD cases, egg cartons, foam cups, to-go foam packaging from restaurants, food and meat trays, and others. Polystyrene is notorious for being difficult to recycle (these items are not recycled if put into a City of Edmonton blue bag), and for leaching potentially toxic chemicals (especially when heated) such as styrene (a known neurotoxin) posing serious health risks. Styrene is classified as a possible human carcinogen by the EPA and by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Avoid at all costs by bringing your own metal/glass/bamboo containers and utensils to stores and restaurants that use these disposables. . #yeg #yeggers #edmonton #780 #alberta #ab #canada #yeglocal #yeglife #stopsuckingyeg #strawfreeedmonton #saynotostraws #refusethestraw #refusesingleuse #wastefreeyeg #skipthestraw #plasticpollution #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #ditchdisposables #zerowaste #sustainable #sustainability #sustainableprojects #gogreen

Happy #DontBeTrashyThursday 🗑 Our teeth are such a small part of our bodies, and yet, if kept clean, they generate obscene amounts of waste. Dentists recommend replacing toothbrushes every three months, which adds up to millions of pounds of non-recyclable plastic going straight into landfills each year 😳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Neglecting one’s teeth is obviously not an option, so what is a environmentally conscious, zero-waste aspirant supposed to do? Enter, these bamboo toothbrushes with charcoal bristles!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As I’ve mentioned in the past, bamboo is 100% biodegradeable — which means it goes right back into the Earth 🙌🏼🌎 I know this seems like such a minor issue, but these small changes can add up to a big difference over the long-term. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So consider these when it comes time to replace your next toothbrush, instead of running out to the drugstore for a non-recycled, non-recyclable, non-biodegradable plastic toothbrush (or accepting the free one from your dentist) that will linger for a thousand years on Earth 🤘🏼

I had a great conversation yesterday with a nutritionist at a health/vitamin all natural pharmacy in NJ, and he told me he could feel the energy of my enthusiasm for herbalism and natural remedies. I thought that was such an awesome compliment, because I think I have been exuding a lot of enthusiasm and positive energy lately for natural and home remedies, esepcially stemming from decolonized wellness. I always try to keep in mind✔Where✔How✔By Whom and ✔Why. WHERE was this item/product made? HOW was it made (was any type of slave labor, biopiracy, child labor, indigenous exploitation involved in the making of or cultivation of this product?) WHO made this product (ties in with the how)? And WHY was this product made (maybe a deeper, philosophical question that can't always be answered but we should try). I am not morally perfect. Never claimed to be. But all we can do is try our best to uphold moral standards as best we can under capitalism🌻 With that being said, enjoy this little mad scientist vid! ☆☆my jar of vinegar and lemon peels, and stash of jalapeños for pickling got cut out of the video unfortunately, but they're there.☆☆ #reduce #reuse #refuse #recycle @stopsingleuseplastics #plasticfreeSeptember #plasticfreenewjersey #plasticfreeNJ #planetorplastic @lifewithoutplastic @plasticfreejuly #mindfulliving #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #plasticfreeliving @zerowastenj @our.planet.our.home @lifewithoutplastic @get_repost #zerowastecollective #sustainable #ecofriendly #goinggreen #saynotoplastic #sustainability #gogreen #zeroplastic #noplastic #renew #chosetorefuse #saynotoplastic #herbalism #decolonizedwellness #naturalremedies #homeremedies @our.planet.our.home

In the wild, turtles are adept at catching and eating jellyfish, but floating plastic bags can easily be mistaken for the the translucent, soft-skinned invertebrates. The WWF says studies estimate that more than 50 per cent of turtles globally have eaten plastic debris or other rubbish, with non-biodegradable waste becoming trapped in the marine reptiles’ digestive systems and causing slow deaths. We can reduce this by using reusable produce bag, litter picking when you can, and educating others. #plasticocean #savetheocean #pollution #lovetheocean #plasticfree #zerowaste #ecofriendly #sustainable #recycle #noplastic #vegan #eco #plasticpollution #environment #sustainableliving #reuse #sustainability #zerowastehome #saynotoplastic #savetheplanet #greenliving #gogreen #zerowastelife #reduce #ocean #plasticsucks #earth #plasticfreeliving #nature #turtle
