When you have a toddler you find yourself out and doing things you never imagined at times you didn't think we're possible ... This morning we're having a plastic free breakfast picnic in the freezing cold outside our local shop spotting traffic (Small Flourish especially likes buses and vans) ... Freshly baked croissants in my own tub and a warm coffee make it easier to pretend it's summer ... And I'm in Paris ...
El Parlamento Europeo está a punto de votar una nueva legislación para limitar el plástico de un solo uso. Pero las principales contaminadoras de plástico mundial @cocacola @pepsi @nestle
intentan diluir la ley haciendo pasar por plástico reciclable lo que es envase de un solo uso
¡No dejemos que las multinacionales sigan llenando nuestros océanos de plástico! Puedes firmar en @breakfreefromplastic
para acabar con los vacíos legales. 💪🏻🌍
All I can say is that’s one good looking shell 🔎⚙️
只要我們一直繼續污染我們的海洋，海洋生物便會一直吸收生物毒素 (bio-toxins) 和重金屬 (heavy metals)。這些毒素會在食物鏈 (food chain) 中向上移動和同時增加。當於食物鏈頂端的生物如鯊魚，獵食其他體內已經積累著不同毒素的生物時，這些毒素便會轉移到鯊魚體內，而這一過程稱為生物放大作用 (biomagnification/bioaccumulation)。所以鯊魚翅其實有著大量毒素和重金屬，如汞 (mercury) 和β-甲氨基-L-丙氨酸 (BMAA)。這兩者都可以觸法老年痴呆症。
If there’s one plastic item you should definitely quit, it’s the plastic straw. Because of their size and shape, they’re basically impossible to recycle. Yes, really!
Start the change and invest in our stainless steel metal straw now. 💚
It's strange, but to me but I find ocean debris quite beautiful. I guess it's because I'm a sight hound and I love looking at everything. While my husband has already filled his bag, I'm like a butterfly with my camera fluttering around never knowing where I will end up 🦋🐋🤸♀️ #nauticaldebris #keepitclean #saveouroceans
This is in the inside of my landfill bin, which is collected every 2 weeks and is usually full to the top. It’s nowhere near the #trashjar
efforts I’ve seen but it’s a 2/3 to 3/4 reduction for our family of three and, after all, it’s not about comparing yourself but doing what is possible and sustainable for you. I’m really proud of this and hope to work on reducing my recycling bin next. I used to think I was being good if my recycling bin was full but now I know only about 30% of that will actually get recycled, I generally aim not to buy plastic in the first place. Things that have helped are:
Refilling shampoo or bars
Swap to a safety razor
Cooking from scratch
Reusable water bottle
Reusable shopping bags
Washable cotton make up pads
Glass bottles of squash only
Make home cleaning products
Organic veg delivery weekly
Glass milk bottles
Ask for meat wrapped in paper
Meal planning (food waste)
Paper cotton buds
Plastic-free beauty products
Compostable bin bags

This set of stairs was a major point of contention in our renovation process. We didn’t agree - leave them as is or remove to create more space. It delayed the works for I think, over a year. I didn’t want to remove them as it seemed wasteful and unecessary - despite being able to see that it would improve the layout of the house. In the end, I was so over it that I agreed to go ahead with the removal to get the works happening.
One of the tradies only recently sent pics to show what happened to the stairs once they were removed. Swipe to see how AMAZING his work and repurpose skills are! A beautiful chest of drawers and cot for his new baby 💜

Something to remember when trying to plastic free your life!
Double up your coffee cup! & use as a Smoothie cup too with one of our stainless steel reusable straws!
A CO2 CUT OF 50% EVERY 10-YEARS WOULD
S-A-V-E — T-H-E — W-O-R-L-D
THE WORST OF
According To A Member Of The UN IPCC Committee On Climate Change, ecologist Johan Rockström.
TO THAT END, AMERICA’S YELLOWSTONE GEOTHERMAL ENERGY COULD POWER AMERICA 24/7
SEVERAL TIMES OVER
AMERICA COULD USE THE EXCESS ENERGY
TO MAKE, PIPE AND SHIP
TO THE ENTIRE WORLD
WEAN THE WORLD OFF FOSSIL FUELS, FOREVER.
FULL YELLOWSTONE GEOTHERMAL DEVELOPMENT Would Take More Than 10-Years,
But WE CAN START TODAY
Because The Technology Is Well Proven.
By The Way, New Mexico Also Has A Massive Unused Geothermal Site, Which Could Be Developed Either In Conjuction With Yellowstone, Or In Lieu Of Yellowstone.
AMERICA CAN CONVERT
To Natural Gas, Solar And Wind Power Generation And Cut America’s CO2 Emissions By Up To 50% In Ten Years.
For Example, An Area 100 By 100 Miles Of Solar Panels Can POWER ALL OF AMERICA On A Sunny Day.
Generous $15,000 electric and hydrogen vehicle tax credits may also help get diesel and gasoline cars and trucks off the road.
As For China, If All Major Countries Levy A Big Tariff On China, China Will Probably Go Clean Energy As Well.

My Pinkie is a true hero!!! 💖 Like always she's been helping me so so much by carrying huge loads of trash in the waves. And she doesn't ever complain even if there's stinky shit all over her (in addition to stinky sweaty trash princess) 😁 The black bag was found and filled. The nature gives me plastic bags and I give the nature a bit cleaner spots, win win 😆

if you think it’s too hard to help out, here are some ways you can be eco friendly at home:
1️⃣eat less meat and dairy products. even cut out meat at least one day a week! the CO2 produced by meat factories is more than what is produced by every car on earth combined
2️⃣turn off your car while waiting in a carpool line at school!! this will reduce carbon emissions and make school air, safer air
3️⃣use/buy reusable produce bags for grocery shopping
4️⃣refuse as much plastic as possible: say no to plastic bottles, cups, and containers. you can bring your own containers instead!
Plastic is very hard to destroy. Once it’s on the earth it’s most likely going to stay on the earth and pollute the beautiful environment around us. Let’s work together and refuse and reduce our plastic consumption.
