Our names are Ashley and Rebecca, and we want to change the world! One tiny step at a time. There are so many bad habits we have all grown up with that seem to have spiraled out of control in the last decade. We are on a mission to curb our insatiable appetite for consumption, as well as our indifference to waste production. Will you take these challenges with us to make our homes, our lives, our world a cleaner, safer, more manageable place to live? The problem seems so HUGE it’s can be overwhelming, but as they say, a journey of a thousand miles starts with one (tiny) step. Will you start your journey with us #wastemanagement #leastwaste #sustainabilitymatters #wastefreeliving #waronwaste #waronplastic #lowwasteliving #zerowastegoals #reduceplasticwaste #noexcuseforsingleuse


How do people react when they know you have a low waste lifestyle??? 🤔 Do they think it's silly or do they make some changes too? I have both. Some support and make changes and others just think I became a crazy lady 😆 #switzerland_pics #switerzland🇨🇭 #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #zerowaste #zerowastelife #zerodechets #menoslixo #menoslixoporfavor #minimalism #minimalist #sustainabilty #ecolifestyle #nature #natureza #naturelover #naturephotography📷 #nature_of_our_world


If you pop your green onion or scallion bottoms in water, you’ll have an almost endless supply of new green onions. I personally think the dead stalks look pretty so I leave them. This bunch was from a farmers market visit 2 months ago. I cut new ones for salad or cooking every week and change the water every week too. Still growing strong! 🌱


let’s talk supplements // do you take them? I’m a big believer in supplements because our bodies do not get all of their necessary requirements from our diets. YL has an entire line of supplements so you can start tailoring your orders to what your body needs - from digestive support to sleep support and vitamins/minerals!


Are you envious of what others have? I am, sometimes.⁠ ⁠ Oh, envy, let's talk about you.⁠ ⁠ Food envy, partner envy, car envy, job envy, life envy, everyone of us knows this feeling.⁠ This pit in the stomach seeing someone else having what you want, but not feeling happy for them, but feeling like they don't deserve it. Just being downright jealous and not granting them what they have.⁠ ⁠ And don't lie to me. It happens to all of us.⁠ ⁠ Especially here on social media.⁠ Studies show that since online platforms like Facebook and Instagram exist, this FOMO has increased.⁠ ⁠ But what surprised me is, this is especially happening with passive users and not necessarily with active users.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ So, I'm asking you 2 questions right now:⁠ 1. Are you using social media actively or passively?⁠ 2. How are you feeling after scrolling/engaging/not engaging?⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Your answers are going to be a base for the continuation of this envy-topic tomorrow :)So, please answer these questions in the comments.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #germanmodels#tfpmodels#colognemodels#fashiongermanystyle#fashion_germany#fashionoutfitter#slowstyle#lowwasteliving#personaldevelopmentquotes#personaldevelopmenttime#personaldevelopmentjourney#christinakli#therubinrose#theseclothesmakemehappy#germanbloggerinspo#portraitpr0ject#shopethical#feelingthefeels#intentionsetting#spiritualenlightenment#franziskaelea#tami_sa#petitemodel#tfpshooting

BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH I’ve been using a bamboo toothbrush for over a month now and I can definitely say its an easy switch! Knowing that my toothbrush can be burnt wood and not fumes from burnt plastic makes me feel GREAT! . If you didn’t know... Here in Bermuda we burn basically all of our trash which means those burnt fumes go into the troposphere (the layer where we live and breathe). Which means not only is it polluting the earth, but its polluting our bodies. . Saying all of that to say, we should all aim to create less waste. #mimigoesgreen .

Reusable wipes and fleece liners that have just come out of the washing machine. Already hung the nappies to dry. I’ve not been using the cloth nappies quite as much as I’d like. I was fortunate enough after maternity leave to go back to work part time for a year but I’m back full time now and trying to adjust. I thought I’d be easy on myself for the first month and just do my best. I’d like to get his nursery using the cloth nappies a couple of days a week but it’s the extra washing I’m trying to find time for. I think once I get used to our new routine I’ll find my way. #workingmum #clothnappies #reusablenappies #realnappies #makelaundrynotlandfill #reusablewipes #cheekywipes #lesswaste #lowwasteliving #ecoparenting #ecomum #clothbum #clothbummum #ecofriendlyliving #sustainableparenting #sustainability #lovetheplanet


Sunday’s are my favorite because I get to sleep in, we might have leftover spaghetti for breakfast, sometimes there are afternoon naps, but extra coffee is guaranteed. 💕

After a summer of abundant #shishitos from the garden, I decided to go beyond shishito beer snacks. This shishito and #cucumber soup turned out well. I blended garden cucumbers, blistered shishitos, chicken stock, apple cider vinegar, and salt. The shishitos are a tiny bit bitter and it’s real nice. #urbangarden #growwhatyoueat . . . #organicgarden #urbangarden #organicgardening #urbanorganicgardener #containergarden #californiagarden #growyourfood #zerowaste #echopark #silverlake #losangelesgardening #urbangardening #urbangardener #smallspaceliving #smallspacegardening #losangeles #tinygarden #socalgarden #urbangarden #urbanhomestead #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #sustainability #sustainableliving

A healthy low waste snack for a slow Sunday. The egg is one of the last of the farm eggs I hard boiled earlier this week. The apple is local, but it came in a plastic bag, which is unfortunate. The egg shell and apple core will be thrown into my compost bucket. The bag will eventually get dropped off at the grocery store for recycling along with other plastic bags and films I’ve collected the past few months. Did you know many retailers offer recycling drop-off bins? These bins accept soft plastics like grocery bags, bread bags, air pillows, plastic film wrapping, cereal bags, sandwich bags, and more. Just make sure to clean and dry them first so they aren’t filled with crumbs, and remember recycling is the third R, not the first! • • • • • #zerowaste #lowwaste #sustainability #local #localfood #compost #recycle #recycling #zerowastetips #lowwasteliving #lowwastejourney #reducewaste #gogreen #plastic

I try my hardest to reuse every piece of packaging I buy at least once...hence I had quite a hoard of glass salsa jars lurking under my sink. About a month ago I got inspired to create a "salad bar in my fridge" and I thought I'd try using my jars. Let me tell ya - I could not be happier. I am reusing an item that would have ended up in a landfill forever and I'm making it easier on myself to improve my eating habits. Plus now it's so easy to whip up a salad or wrap or add a little something to a recipe. I spend about 30 minutes a week chopping and filling and I'm set for the work week. WIN! #reuse #recycle #lowwasteliving #salad #plantbaseddiet #forksoverknives

Truth: i find washing beeswax wraps annoying. HOWEVER, I have found if I have a shallow pan of slightmy warm water and mild soap, it makes it so much easier. These I’ve had since 2016 and they’re just getting to the point that i could re-wax them (so easy). They are a critical piece of my kitchen arsenal.

A little late with my weekly contemplation but I just couldn’t withhold this wisdom from you all 🌾 . Jane Jacobs wasn’t strictly an environmentalist, but her writings on the rapid industrialization and urbanization of American cities during the 20th century helped to lay the foundations of the sustainability movement as we know it. . Jacobs was unrelenting in her belief that “human beings exist wholly within nature as a legitimate part of natural order in every respect.” According to Jacobs, the unity between humans and the world around us demands a deep respect for the natural world; and it is this belief that the sustainability movement stands on. . I love this quote so much because it fills me with hope when I am so prone too hopelessness these days. It reminds me that our greatest assets as humans really can save the world, we just need to direct these assets toward protecting the environments we are unified with. 🌍 . I shared more on Jacobs in my hero’s story highlight, so head there if you’re interested in learning more about this bad-ass lady who’s legacy will help us save the world 💪🏼 . #sustainableliving #lowwasteliving #lowimpactmovement #consciousconsumer #environmentalism #ecofriendlyliving #thewholesomelife


This batch of acorn dye produced lovely subtle browns, beiges, & grey 🍂 I’m excited to play around a bit with modifiers to see what other shades I can get ☺️ loving the constant experimentation!


I tend to make a roast each Sunday. I'm a stickler for tradition and roast potatoes are the bomb. To #eatlessmeat we alternate chicken with vegetarian versions. This is a new one - roast butternut squash. I filled it with left over veggie tagine and rice. It's topped with blue cheese as a treat. Also featuring some home grown veg! 👌 #lowwasteliving #lowwastefood #flexitarian #homegrownfood

✨small joy✨ Did you join @slowfashionseason ? Did you not buy new for 3 months? If you did, 🙌. If you didn’t, 🙌. Point is, it doesn’t necessarily matter if you succeeded or failed, it mattered that you tried! We’re all a work in progress... I know I am constantly trying to do better. Some days, I fail, in a lot of ways. Other days, I celebrate my small wins. . With the end of SFS, I’ve concluded that clothing wise, I’ll allow myself one item per month (possibly even less). My goal before 2019 ends is to declutter my closet and home. I’ll continue to minimize things coming into my house as I have the last 3 months. . Pictured are birthday gifts I got several weeks ago. Not pictured is what matters to me more than anything- time spent with family and friends 💕


Thank you to everyone that striked on Friday. Thank you for being active and voicing your concerns about our changing climate and standing in solidarity with those suffering RIGHT NOW because of it. .

A new blog post is up, when 2 choices were revealed to me, I sat up and listened. I made the choice to find out who I am, and with that marks the end of my time here on social media. . . I've been running this account for over 2 years and no longer feel the desire to continue any longer. I will be officially closing down all of my social media accept my blog this week. This was a personal decision I needed to find myself.

Sunny autumn days ☼


if you’re anything like me, you’re an overbuyer in recovery. why do i have five different deodorants in this drawer plus one in the bathroom + one in my gym bag? why do i have so many different shades of lipstick even though i rarely wear it? i’m truthfully tired of all the clutter and as excited as i may be to switch to more ecofriendly solutions or just get rid of this stuff, sending what i do have to a landfill certainly won’t help matters. . for anyone who is just starting to become a more conscious consumer one of the best things you can do is: use what you already have. . use it up, donate it or give it to a friend. and also, take this as an opportunity to think about your own habits as a consumer. . that’s what i’m doing, too. . . . #usewhatyouhave #wastenotwantnot #zerowaste #zerowastetoronto #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #reducereuserecycle


Something I love about Colombia is the architecture. They have this sort of inside / outside thing going on. This is the kitchen in the share house I’m living in - half of it is open to the sky! Medellín is “the city of eternal spring”, but it still gets pretty hot, temps 90*F or more. What’s interesting is that even though it’s hot outside, it’s not too hot inside. And it’s because of the architecture. Everything is open to the outdoors so it’s drafty and keeps air circulating. There’s no need for air conditioning. While different climates have different needs, I think this is worth exploring. I wonder if places with seasons could still implement a similar option for times when the weather is hot. That way we could cut back on our reliance to air conditioning. 🤔 #ecoarchitecture #wastefreeplanet #sustainablelifestyle #lowwasteliving #thinkgreen #ecofriendlyliving #earthfriendly #ecoliving #colombiatravel #ecologico #lesswaste #earthfriendly #connectwithnature #lowenergy #rethink #noairconditioning #insideoutside


{the dirty truth about the how we clean our laundry🚫🆘❌} ⠀⠀ did you know that the way we wash our clothes is one of the #1 contributing factors to the amount of microplastics that end up in our oceans? ⠀⠀ up to 35% of the microplastics in our oceans can be attributed to our laundry machines and the clothes we put inside of them... ⠀⠀ THIRTY FIVE PERCENT PEOPLE!!! ⠀⠀ if you want to learn about the ways that you can change up your laundry routine to reduce the amount of microplastics released, click the link in my bio!!🧺


💋 D I Y L I P S C R U B, 💋 Since its now autumn I made a DIY Autumn lip scrub with cinnamon, inspired by the season 🍁🍂. . I melted 2x tablespoons of coconut oil, then mixed it with: 2x teaspoons of cinamon, 2x tablespoons of brown sugar and 1x teaspoon of natural honey 🍯. . I'm hoping to use this and similar recipes instead of buying lip scrubs from a shop since they're so easy and quick to make! 👄 . #diyhome #diyscrub #diylipscrub #cinamon #simplediy #lowwasteliving #lowwaste #zerowaste #noplastic #lipscrub #zerowasteliving #zerowastebeauty #diybeauty

I sat reflecting on the climate strike over breakfast this morning. It was exhilarating to see how many people showed up for the strike, and to see the passion and energy people brought. But the strike is over. So now what? • • • Now the real work begins. We have to take the energy and enthusiasm we found for the strike, and use it to hit the ground running. The work ahead may not be as exciting as the march, but it’s how we’re going to make change. • • • So what kind of changes can we make? 1. Confirm your voter registration. Not registered to vote? REGISTER! The only way we can make progress is by voting out the current administration. 2. Educate yourself 📚🤓🌱🌍 utilize your local library, and read up on climate related issues. Knowledge is power! 3. Pledge to east less meat. There is no getting around it, sorry, if you eat meat, you have a large carbon footprint. I’m not saying that you have to be a full fledged vegan, but see if you can cut down your meat consumption to just a couple times a week. It’s not as hard as you might think. 4. Commit (if possible) to driving/flying less, and walking/biking/and taking more public transportation. 5. Talk to to your friends, loved ones, mail carriers, baristas, barbers, teachers, bus drivers, cashiers, and anyone else who will listen and engage about the climate crisis. We have to have these conversations, even if they’re uncomfortable. Because you know what will is more uncomfortable? Climate change. 6. Pick one thing. Start with one, and make a pledge. It could be to yourself, you could tell someone, or share it on social media. But make a pledge to make a change. Because if we don’t, the climate strike will just have been an empty gesture. I’m pledging to start a weekly email that will include weekly missions to decrease our waste, articles/videos/podcasts on climate change issues, news sources, and actions we can take in our communities and beyond 🌍🌱 #climatecrisis #climatechangeisreal #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #goingzerowaste #zerowastebrooklyn #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #lowimpactmovement #reducewhatyouproduce #trashfreeplanet #noplasticplease #reusereducerecycle #sustainability


Its Sunday again, time for #sustainablesundayswaps so today let me show you one of my favourites. Castile soap is an amazing all round cleaner. It has been around for years particularly used by environmentally conscious cleaners. Not only can it be used to clean but also for washing up and way more (check out the info section on the castile soaps). This Castile soap comes in an aluminium bottle so plastic free as well as natural, vegan and palm oil free. If you're going to use castile soap as a liquid handwash then you'll need a pump from an old bottle if you have one. Castile soap can be used in your kitchen on laundry,mopping your floors and washing your pets believe it or not. This soap does contain essential oils so please consult with your doctor if you're pregnant. It's also SLS free too. There are 6 fragrances to choose one.

Happy weekend!! I hope you are all having a good one and a good #secondhandseptember !! ☀️ Besides thrifting for beautiful sweaters, here are some sustainable fabric choices I talk about in my next video that you can look out for when shopping. ▫️organic cotton ▫️hemp (UV resistant and light) ▫️ linen ▫️Tencel / Lyocell (woven wood pulp but SUPER SOFT!!) ... There are conflicting opinions in the sustainability community about whether recycled synthetic fibres (nylon, rayon, etc.) are truly sustainable. Some say it helps contribute to a circular economy, others believe it will not help the microplastics issue in the ocean if fashion producers keep using synthetics. Your thoughts? ☺️


🌱I posted a few weeks ago that I needed new running shoes. I was debating between our local Running Room, and a local shoe store. After I posted I had a 🤦🏼‍♀️ moment where I realized I hadn’t even checked my local buy and sell sites.. so I hit up Facebook Marketplace! #notsponsored #hmu . . 🌱It didn’t take me long to locate these barely worn @saucony beauties! The seller was located a 10 min drive away and I actually picked them up a few hours later. She told me she’d worn them once for a few hours and didn’t like how they fit. We had a nice little chat while I tried them on, I handed over $40 (!!!!) and off I went! . . 🌱I was absolutely tickled that I paid less than 30% of what I was expecting to pay retail. From what she was telling me I gathered the seller works in a hospital and I have mild germ anxiety so I wiped them down with a diluted bleach solution and I felt a whole lot better 😂🙈 I’ve since taken them out on a few runs and I’m happy with them! 💕🏃🏼‍♀️ . . #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #zerowasteparenting #zerowasteparents #zerowastemom #lowwasteliving #lowwastelifestyle #lowwasteparenting #lowwasteparents #secondhandeconomy #facebookmarketplace #winwin #cheapsneakers #saucony #motherrunner #fairweatherrunner

Let’s talk about ZERO WASTE. Disclaimer: I’m nowhere near living a zero waste lifestyle! But by god, do I want to start being a part of the solution rather than the problem...even if it’s baby steps to get there. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The climate crisis is at our doorstep and I think about what kind of world I want to leave behind for Skye and how I want caring for the earth to be so intuitive and ingrained in him that it’s an effortless part of his lifestyle. Because for me, it’s FAR from effortless or intuitive. I have been taking stock of my life over the past few months and realized how much plastic fills my home...from shampoo bottles, to soap dispensers, skin care product packaging, cleaning supply bottles, food packaging, clothing, dog poop bags, stackable drawers for office supplies...plastic inhabits every room of my home. I think about how every piece of plastic ever made still exists in some form and I want to cry.⁣⁣ 😭 ⁣⁣ But instead of crying, I’m committing to action. I’m not going to do this perfectly and I’m not going to end up zero waste overnight. Honestly, I may never make it to zero waste, but I do know that I can cut down from high waste to medium waste, and eventually get from medium waste to low waste over time.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ And I want to share the journey with you. I want to learn from those of you who are lightyears ahead of me on this path and also hopefully offer some inspiration and tangible solutions to those of you who are just beginning. And most importantly, I want to do it in a judgment free way because we’re all doing the best we can. ❤️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here are some steps I’ve already taken:⁣⁣ 🌳 Wooden toys for Skye (we donated anything plastic to Goodwill with the exception of a fire truck made from recycled milk jugs, a threading game, and his sand bucket/shovel set). ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🌳Use reusable grocery bags and organic cotton produce bags (no more unnecessary plastic baggies for my veggies! 🙌🏼).⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🌳Swap out ziplocks for glass jars and glass food storage containers. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🌳Switched our home water delivery from plastic jugs to glass jugs. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🌳Pick up our dog poop by hand (KIDDING! 😝 But seriously though, any eco-friendly suggestions for this one?)💩🧐⁣


J’aime traduire la vie en équations mathématiques pour mieux la comprendre et prendre des meilleures décisions.⠀ ⠀ La réduction de la pollution et des gaz à effet de serre est pas mal à la mode ces temps cis et heureusement. Mais concrètement, ce n’est pas toujours évident de savoir si les actions qu’on pose sont bonnes ou mauvaises pour l’environnement. Récemment j’ai fait une petite comparaison entre l’achat du lait en vrac et en carton et j’ai envie d’explorer les autres actions ou décisions qu’on est amenés à faire quotidiennement, et leur impact.⠀ ⠀ Je me suis procuré un beau petit livre qui aborde ce sujet là. Voir les chiffres, ça aide beaucoup à comprendre notre impact et à se remettre en question. D’ailleurs, le livre insiste sur le fait qu’il n’est pas nécessaire d’être un intégriste pour être conscient de ses actions et faire une réelle différence : « I’m not saying go vegan any more that I’d say never drive ».

This is Ethyl the Whale 🐋, a life sized humpback whale sculpture made entirely out of recycled plastics. Did you know that 8 million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean each year? There are an estimated 150 million metric tons of plastic in our current marine environments. Did you know that the average humpback whale can weigh between 25-30 metric tons? To imagine a single ton of plastic in the ocean is depressing, to know that there are millions of humpback whale sized amounts of plastic (about 5,000,000+, if I’m correct) within the marine environments is not only horrific but also very telling of our species. In 2018, the humpback whale population was an estimated 80,000. On the brighter side of things, the population has risen from what was once a low of 10,000. #climatechange #gretathunberg #ecofriendlyliving #climatestrike #fridaysforfuture #lowwasteliving #lowwaste #santafe


Don’t forget to bring your own water bottle when you travel. Plastic bottle can be so easily avoid and at least mine bring me back memory from New Zealand.


⁣ Safety razors are another simple way to decrease your waste/plastic! ⁣ ⁣ Razors are a huge example of how it’s so easy for us to buy things with intentions of throwing them out. 🗑 ⁣ ⁣ I have been shaving for over 20 years. You know how many of my razors are still out there? In a landfill or in the ocean....all of them. The EPA estimates that over 2 BILLION razors are thrown away each year 🤯⁣ ⁣ This razor is all metal. Even my packaging was plastic free! The blades are super cheap ($18 for 100!) that will last me soooo long!) I could easily spend $18 on one Gillette razor that came with only one replacement!!! 🤑⁣ @lisseshave ⁣ There are no weird chemicals or dyes in any part of this razor. And besides, it’s so pretty!!!! ⁣ ⁣ A safety razor is definitely worth checking out! It took me a few shaves to get used to it because you need to use shorter strokes and slow down a bit but it’s so worth it and just gets easier each time I use it (also, I now shave less often!) ⁣ ⁣ #plasticfreeoceans #safetyrazors #lowwasteliving

I’m the big 3-0 today! 🧁💗 I know a lot of people find turning 30 tough, but I haven’t felt that yet. To be honest I never felt like I was particularly good at being in my twenties, haha! 😜 Here in Vancouver, it’s pouring 🌧 today and I’m looking forward to a relaxing day with my family. (Also, how beautiful is this cup of tea? It’s a herbal tea called “Lullaby” which is pretty perfect for a rainy Sunday.) ☕️ Last weekend I had a little dinner out with some friends and instead of gifts I requested donations to environmental or human rights nonprofit organization of their choice. I was so happy to see the donations they made and the groups they chose! 🌍🌏🌎 What are you up to today? Whatever it is I hope you have a lovely Sunday! . . . . . . . . #lesswaste #reducewaste #zerowaste #zerowastetips #lesswastelifestyle #lowwasteliving #zerowastejourney #vancouverblogger #saynotosingleuse #reduceyourimpact #zerowastefamily #ecolifestyle #lowimpacthuman #minimalwaste #sustainablelifestyle #earthenthusiast #lessenyourfootprint #ourplanetourhome #noplanetb #ecolife #discoverunder10k #vancouverinfluencer #zerowasteirl #lowimpact #plantbased #carbonfootprint #nopackaging #teatime#ditchplastic #sustainablefuture


#useitup FAIL 😭 Sadly I had to throw away my @elfcosmetics acne foundation after around 2 years. I put it on today and my face has been itching like crazy. Yet another reminder why I need to slow down, love what I have, and minimize my consumption. Such a waste of money, plastic, and resources. This foundation is super cheap, medium coverage, a great color match for me, and has salicylic acid for my acne. I’ll definitely repurchase once I’ve used up more foundations. #useitup #projectpan #usewhatyouhave #thoughtfulconsumer #projectpanner #lowwasteliving #fail #elfcosmetics #foundation #makeup


Cooler weather and crisp pears are definitely giving us all the fall vibes this weekend! 🍐I was able to meet my friend Samantha (@strucksured) at her family farm to glean pears from their already harvested rows the other day. For whatever reason sometimes not all of the fruit on the tree gets picked, and some are left to eventually become fertilizer for the tree as they drop and compost. It was neat to be able to save some pears from waste; we used them in our first course at the @sunshinemillwinery Wines in the Vines dinner last night! #thedalles #gorgeevents #columbiagorge #visitthedalles #hoodgorge #eatlocal #columbiarivergorge #atmytable #rootedtable #rootedinthegorge #rooted #sunshinemillwinery #explorethedalles #winesinthevines #riversidefarms #closedloopcooking #zerowastecooking #lowwasteliving #lowwastelifestyle #gorgeweddingcaterer #hoodriver #traveloregon

Jeg har sydd min første glidelås! 👊🏻 Tok meg bare to år og en tutorial fra @ingridviklysne@nrksymesterskapet å tørre. Stoffet og glidelåsen kjøpte jeg hos @fretexgronland under Mote&Gjenbruk♻️ på @gronlandstorg i går. *klapper meg selv på skulderen*


Not a clothes post, but still a good #reuserecycle story! Found THE BEST banana cake recipe today and have transformed my brown bananas into something delightful! Yum! #useitup #nowaste #bananacake #reuserecycle #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #baking


💭 With all the climate strikes going on and the big push to take the Earth's health seriously for once, I've been reflecting on when I made my first low-waste choice. Growing up, I was always big into recycling, saving the trees, picking up litter, and having a vegetable garden. It wasn't until mid-2018 that I was more focused on how my consumption (monetarily and food-wise) affected the planet and took my first step in the right direction. It was all over social media how straws are terrible for animals and how they NEVER GO AWAY because they're plastic! I'm not sure what exactly 'clicked' for me, but I started putting actions behind my beliefs and bought myself some stainless steel straws. 💚 What was that moment for you when you started taking action to help the planet? ✨ . . . . . #reuse #savetheearth #plasticfree #plasticfree #reusablestraw #nomoreplastic #zerowastestudent #zerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastejourney #zerowasteliving #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #lowwastestudent #lowwastejourney #lowwastelifestyle

I had such a great time at the Common Ground Fair yesterday. It’s so wonderful to be surrounded by so many vendors who get it. Vendors who use sustainably sourced ingredients, and vendors who have low carbon emissions. Vendors who want to see a change as much as we do. Common Ground welcomes all with open arms, and is always one of the highlights of my year. ❤️ • • • #commongroundfair #commongroundcountryfair #mofga #lowwasteliving #ecofriendly #zerowastemaine #unitymaine #stasherbag #togoware #beeswrap #chicobag #thinkgreen #knowyourfarmer #locallysourced #farmtofork #organic #farmersmarket


Happy rainy Sunday to you all! This week’s video is up on YT. I go second hand clothes shopping. I think I found the best quality charity shop. I found a few gems and spent no more than €10. Buying second hand clothes is the most sustainable because all the products have already been made so apart from underwear, there really is enough in second hand shops to go around. Oxfam started #secondhandseptember so I thought a trip to a charity shop was in order... I hope you enjoy the video and have a magical start to the week.

Did you know....⠀ ⠀ Missouri is the seventh largest producer of pork in the US?⠀ ⠀ The fifth largest turkey producer?⠀ ⠀ When it comes to chicken we’re 10th for broilers (young chickens), 14th for eggs, and 16th for all chickens?⠀ ⠀ Did you also know Missouri factory farms may be able to do what they want with animal waste with little to no supervision? ⠀ ⠀ Missouri senate bill 391, removes the ability of county commissions and health boards to make rules on factory farms and the waste they create.⠀ ⠀ And factory farm waste is a big problem. Waste is dealt with in two ways: open air lagoons or sprayed into the air/on crops.⠀ ⠀ Open air lagoons continue to contribute to greenhouse gas emissions while also leeching into ground water and contaminating local wells. ⠀ ⠀ Spraying waste into the air or over fields release 160 toxic gasses including the deadly hydrogen sulfide. Spraying also results in runoff water which can carry E Coli. Run off water was to blame for seven E. Coli related deaths and 2300 illnesses in Ontario, Canada. ⠀ ⠀ All of this to say that I certainly care about what’s happening in the city, but I also care about what’s happening to rural communities too. Communities should always have the power to refuse industries that lower property values, ruin local streams, and contaminate drinking water. Our region is often united by sports (play Gloria!), but let’s unite around protecting our fellow Missourians too!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #zerowaste #zerowastestl #goingzerowaste #zerowastehome #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #progressoverperfection #yayforearth #zerowasteirl #reducewhatyouproduce #extinctionrebellion #youthclimatestrike #climatecrisis #climatestrike #sunrisemovement #refrosttheplanet #rebelforlife #fridaysforfuture #schoolstrike4climate #climateemergency #climateaction #playgloria #letsgoblues #blueshockey⠀ ⠀


Bamboo straws~! 🎍 Reasons to switch from single-use plastic straws to bamboo straws:- 1) Cost effective as it is sold in large amounts (10-20 straws) 2) Reusable and long-lasting when properly cared and cleaned 3) Biodegradable (fully made by bamboo) 4) Healthy and chemical-free 5) Stylish and simple To learn more, you can check out this website~ ( https://householdwonders.com/reasons-to-use-bamboo-drinking-straws/ ) Photo credit: @eartha.eco [ #asia #malaysia #malaysian #sabah #sabahan #kotakinabalu #kk #kkyouthclimatestrike #kkyouthcs #kkclimatestrike #globalclimatestrike #climatestrike #schoolstrike4climate #fridaysforfuture #naturenow #gogreen #climatechange #environment #recycle #reuse #reduce #noplastic #saynotoplastic #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #lowwasteliving #actnow #earth #nature ]


INTERSECTIONS: Racial issues are directly tied to environmental issues. Statistically, black people do not feel as connected to saving the environment in the United States. I empathize. Would you feel connected to a place where you were oppressed and treated horribly? Although it was humans that did the damage, and NOT THE EARTH, there is an inequality among the masses and I believe it's up to white people to work to bridge that gap between black & white ... and what allows us all to breathe. It's our legacy. - - #blacklivesmatter #climatestrike #globalclimatestrike #climatestrikenyc #climatestrikeny #climatecrisis #intersectionality #whiteprivilege #dismantlethepatriarchy #lowwasteliving #boycottamazon #boycottcorporateamerica #racialjusticeforall #wethepeople #environmentaljustice


LOW WASTE FABRIC SOFTENER We’ve recently been lucky enough to have low waste shops opening up in our local towns. But like most people who aren’t organised... like us... we often forgot to bring our containers with us to fill up. So we were running low on our fabric softener and i had recently brought a big bottle of white vinegar as it’s a brilliant cleaning essential in low waste living. I came across a brilliant and simple recipe for a homemade fabric softener. The recipe is from @goodlifeeats and I did actually half this recipe as it does make a lot! And although it is mainly white vinegar, it doesn’t smell vinegary at all! RECIPE 1 cup baking soda 9 drops lemon essential oil 9 drops orange essential oil 9 drops bergamot essential oil 3 cups white vinegar Combine the baking soda and essential oils together and then slowly add the white vinegar and stir well. We used an old vodka bottle to store ours which we actually got from our low waste store which is perfect for pouring into the draw. The mix will separate, but give it a little shake and it will mix bake together. Around 1/2 cup for a washing load.


In the US, 1 BILLION plastic toothbrushes are thrown out each year, creating some 50 million pounds of waste. It’s such a no brainer to use bamboo toothbrushes instead, which only take six months to biodegrade back into the soil. 🙌🏽 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #lesswaste #lowwasteliving #consciousconsumer #lesswastewarriors #wasteless #wastelesshero #lowwaste #lowwastejourney #lowwastelifestyle #lowwastehome #lowwastehometips #lowwastelife #lowwastemovement #wastelessmovement #wastelesshome #ecotips #ecohometips #ecoliving #ecofriendlyliving #greenhome #greenlivingtips #greenliving #smallactsbigimpact #dosomething #dosomethinggood #dosomethinggoodtoday


My usual get-up these days involves lugging around my eco-essential kit, a happy habit formed! ☺️. To keep things tidy, I store them in paisley drawstring pouches (for easy add & remove). In an ideal situation, my basket carry-all would contain - . For BYO Food Takeout (from R to L):. 1. Coffee / tea cup & strap (kinto, keepcup, huskee, stojo etc) 2. Reusable food container (silicone, steel, plastic etc) 3. Straw & cutlery pouch [ thesocialspacesg ] 4. Snack bags [ stasher, tuneemanee, beegohandmade, o'foodin ] 5. Collapsible tupperware bowl 6. Baggy for shopping buys, bread or as cloth wipe 7. Furoshiki wrap that doubles up as a napkin 8. Reusable totes [ baggu, marimekko ] 9. Stainless steel water bottle (hidden at the bottom) . For Grocery Run (pix.2):. 10. Produce / bread bags [ ever.eco, thesourcesg ] 11. Cooler bag (not in pix). . A lot of 'barang-barang' .... I'm so with @tabaogirl on this one! . And the thing is, when I pack light, I'm always found lacking this item or that. When I pack solid, I find I carried unnecessary items that I didn't have time/need to use, or am at the wrong place for ... . Geez... who's with me on that? 🙄 🤣 . #byo #byokit #bringyourownkit #bringyourown #ibringmyownsg #bringyourownbag #byobag #byobsg #byosingapore #byocup #bringyourowncup #reusablecup #reusable #reusables #whatsinmybag #ecolife #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #nosingleuse #reduceplastic #drsi #keepcup #stasherbag #evereco #baggu . .
