Bring your own container - there aren’t many places to get vegan food where we live, but we have a little vietnamese restaurant nearby. They have a few vegan dishes (and declared as such on the menu, which is rare here). The couple running it is super nice and even gives us a discount for bringing our own containers ☺️💚. #bringyourown
Yesterdays tiny #groceryhaul (though 3,5 kg pasta is not tiny 🙈). We’re a bit off our usual grocery rythm - normally I go to the farmers market once per week and stock up on dry goods once or twice every two months. This way I save a lot of time, but it also helps to avoid food waste since I only have fresh produce for one week at home 🌱💚.
Be part of the solution! Spotted this exibition about plastic pollution in the oceans today. If you’re in Brussels, go check it out at #placeluxembourg 👍💚.
A #nasoni - a roman drinking water fountain. Tap water in Rome is perfectly drinkable and everywhere in the city you can find fountains where to fill your bottle 👍. #noplasticneeded
We’re heading to Italy and I plan to eat lots of #gelato 💚. I always have a small jar&spoon with me for ice-cream, bc I can’t eat the cone due to my #coeliacdisease The boxes ice-cream shops offer are always either plastic or plastic coated cardboard and thus not recyclable 👎.
Happy Easter 🌱☀️. These are the easter eggs of our kids - plastic free, filled with chocolate eggs bought in bulk and home baked goodies. We’ve been using the same fillable eggs since years. My grandmother even has one which is almost a 100yrs old ☺️. #zerowaste #vegan #vegankids
This evenings Easter #zerowastecrafts 💚I’m not a big crafter but this was super easy, even my 6y old made some ☺️. We didn’t buy paper but used pretty paper from old magazines instead. The instruction is from @meinfeenstaub and I stumbled on it via @_wastelandrebel_ .
Todays haul from the #farmersmarket. In the jars, giant beans in tomato sauce, roasted eggplants and the most delicious olives (only two survived the ride home 😆). Have a lovely weekend everyone 💚🌱.
Zero waste essentials - we have 2 boxes for our cloth handkerchiefs (1 in the kitchen, 1 in the bathroom), the container on the left we use in the kitchen to put the dirty hankies in (in the bathroom, we just throw them into the laundry basket). We also have several pouches as shown for the hankies while outside. Definitely not going back to disposable ones 😉.
What a beautiful, sunny day it was! Had a picknick in our beloved #parcjosaphat with fellow zerowaster friends ☀️🌱. Have a good start into the new week everyone ☺️.
Some zerowasteinspiration for a Monday morning - a restaurant inviting ppl to bring their own jars/containers for take-away 👍. Bravo #ledensansgluten and #zerodechetstrasbourg ! at L'Eden Sans Gluten
Our smallish #groceryhaul from last weekend. In the left cloth bag, pasta and in the right one chocolate cereals - of which my Finnish side thinks "this is way too sweet for breakfast" while my German side says "this is so yummy, should have this for breakfast every day" 😉. at The Barn Bio Market
Inspired by @zondagbosdag I aim to spend more time outdoors this winter. We did a short hike on Sunday and had a zero-waste picnic with hot chocolate. We definitely need to do this more often 💚. at Bois du Laerbeek
Feeling a bit homesick when receiving this pic from my mum ❄️❄️❄️. #faraway
A beautiful sunday with the afternoon spent in my happy place, the urban garden nearby. I got some organic fruit and tons of parsley there, saved from the dumpster 💚. #nofoodwasted
Todays #groceries . In Belgium organic shops and farmers markets have all produce from Belgium in blue boxes and produce from elsewhere in boxes with other colours. So it's super easy to spot what's local and what isn't 👍.
Teatime with a view 💚. I really love this teapot from #marimekko, it has a built-in teafilter, which makes it very #zerowaste and #bulk friendly 👍.
Zerowaste essentials when traveling with a baby/toddler: cloth diapers, a wetbag and a wash cloth. No need for disposable nappies or baby wipes 🌱💚. Heading to #tampere with these in tow to visit some friends ☺️. #imsevimse #toukkashop
