It is not about deprivation or doing without. It is about finding better choices. ~Rachelle Strauss . These groceries came package-free from the main square from a lady who travels here twice a week in order to offer her goodies.

One of my 2019 goals is to reduce the amount of plastic I use . It’s something SO SIMPLE, & yet it’s more convenient to grab that disposable coffee cup or use a million little plastic bags at the grocery store 🤦🏼‍♀️ . These produce bags are awesome! You can wash them too. They make grocery shopping without plastic convenient & simple 👌🏻 . Did you know that places where you can buy bulk items (like nuts & baking flours) let you bring in your own jars to fill up too! . I also plan to carry foldable bags in my purse & gym bag & I promise to put them back after I use them (isn’t that always the hardest part 😂) . . Have you gone plastic free? . . . #winnipegnutritionist#winnipegnutrition#naturalnutrition#plasticfree#reducewaste#reduceplasticwaste#reusablebags

Be PROUD of yourself! 
Have you ever considered that acknowledging how proud you
Be PROUD of yourself! Have you ever considered that acknowledging how proud you are of yourself can improve your self esteem? 🤔 This is something I teach my coaching clients all the time because everything starts with the power of the mind! ❤️ Instead of being down on yourself for not potentially eating as well as you should have or maybe not getting to the gym, or having too many wines why not focus on the areas or the things you are doing well in!🙌🏻 I PROMISE you this works wonders, it will instantly make you feel more positive and it will help you make better choices. One thing I am really proud of this year is my effort to reduce plastic. I have been inspired by beautiful friend @nickisupitup who gave me my first keep cup a few months ago and really just got me thinking about the impact plastic has on our environment. Sure I have a long way to go but here are few changes I am proud of: 1: remembering to use my keep cup (most days). 2. I have started to not use the plastic freezer bags that we put or fruit and veg in when we buy it and instead I just place it lose in my basket or trolley. I also obviously stopped used plastic shopping bags a while back too. 3. My husband and I use to collect the plastic freezer bags from buying fruit & veg to reuse around the house and we actually had a draw full, so I decided I would use these for nappy disposable bags instead of buying more plastic ones. I only use these when Emily does a really bad 💩😂 otherwise I just put the nappy straight in the bin. I have decided to not use plastic nappy bags at all now. So yeah that is just one thing I am proud of and I think being proud of yourself is such a great tool for mental health. So just take some time to stop and think of something you are really proud of. Just remind yourself of the great human you are and the great human that you can continue to be! 😊🙌🏻 ❤️ #coachjlowe#happyhealthyfoody

Here’s the trash I created in 1 month during #zerowaste. It’s been a positive and interesting learning experience, and I will continue this challenge as a new way of living, learning how to further adapt in the process. 🌱🌱🌱 During this month, there were so many simple changes I made that not only reduced waste to almost nothing, but also forced me to take a look at myself as a consumer. So much of what perpetuates the cycle of creating waste is the dependency on things that are pre-made, to-go, quick, convenient, and constantly in front of our faces as the most available, popular option. It’s a mirror of our fast-paced, busy society where the obvious remedy is to just slow down. It seems as if we don’t have the time to think about the fact that can be another way, which just might include a little extra effort and education. 🌱🌱🌱 Here are the top #adaptations I found to #reducewaste: 1. Reusable grocery bag, jars, and containers to buy bulk. You can find soap, shampoo, teas, oils, soy sauce, honey, pasta, rice, and so much more in bulk! Save your #wine bottles and mason #jars and fill them. Skip the plastic bags to separate your veggies + let them use their own skin. No pre-packaged food...Which means.... 2. Yo ass gonna be cookin + getting creative in the kitchen 🍳🥦. Try making homemade versions of packaged things you normally. It’s a fun challenge. I made #almondmilk, oat milk, nut butter, lentil #hummus, snacks, breads, etc. I pretty much never had to use the trash can after making meals or grocery shopping bc food scraps were composted.). 3. Shift your #shopping.#Thrift stores for clothes. Really think about what you actually #NEED. Can you make it yourself or borrow it? No online shopping (I received a gift for my birthday that was so sweet but came with so much unrecyclable packaging) 😕(will be used for an art project!) 4. Bring your own cup to cafes! The to-go cups aren’t recyclable due to the wax. Bring your own containers to restaurants. Or clean your plate. 5. #Divacups instead of tampons. Still getting used to that one. 6. You can make your own deodorant, toothpaste, lip balm, etc in reusable containers. 🌱🌱🌱 Challenges below:

We're only a week from Christmas, so maybe you haven't finished wrapping your lovely gifts. If you have, congratulations on being ready for the holiday!

There are many alternatives to traditional wrapping paper that aid in alleviating the waste created by this holiday.

Little hobbies keep me sane as a mum to two toddlers. Last week I made these little shirts out of a sarong we had. The fabric was so gorgeous I wanted them to wear it 😍 It's hard to get time to yourself & honestly I am not very good at putting myself first but on Sunday I closed the door to the spare room, left the boys (whinging & crying) with their father & spent time making these. It's been a while since I did some sewing & now that I have started I do not want to stop 😂 I also read a book (for enjoyment not study) last week & I have started a new one 👌🏼

Basically, you offer goods or services to others for free - and you can also ask for things you want or need! While my recent offer of homemade Christmas cookies was made in the spirit of the holidays, Buy Nothing is a year-round operation. It's a fun way to build community, cut down on waste, and do some good! . Check here to see if there is a group near you: https://buynothingproject.org/find-a-group/

Fresh radish microgreen pesto. From farm to tummy in minutes. Harvested bumper crop from one 5”x5” grow mat—75 grams! (About 2.5 oz). Crazy great roots. Small batch pesto also shown (enough for 2 in one meal) is hand chopped not blended for a different flavor. Ingredients: radish microgreens, garlic, nooch for all B vitamins, handful of walnuts, splash of lemon, and 1T of olive oil. High water content of fresh radish microgreens needs much less oil for a tasty pesto. Around 100 calories per serving. #microgreens#plantbased#plantbaseddiet#instaplantbased#vegan#veganmeals#vegandiet#instagovegan#instavegan#eatclean#healthy#healthyliving#instafood#salad#greens#organic#supportlocal#growyourownfood#veganfoodie#health#wholefoods#garden#homegarden#farm#farmineveryhome#reducewaste#frugal#climatechange#climateaction

Last night we had the most incredible experience watching an endangered loggerhe
Last night we had the most incredible experience watching an endangered loggerhead turtle lay her clutch of 116 eggs. When she was finished and had made her way back to the ocean, we helped the rangers move the eggs to a nest on higher ground. To hold something so precious, what an indescribable feeling. Only one in 1000 make it to adulthood and return to this very same beach in 30yrs time to lay their own eggs. This morning we did our beach clean, our way of saying thankyou for having us. We picked this up on a 20m stretch. The ranger explained that once hatchlings make it to the water they start feasting on whatever will fit into their mouth. A belly full of colourful, toxic, indigestible plastic. Devastating. We all have a responsibility to clean up our act and our oceans. Every piece counts.

#Earthships are self-contained, off the grid homes made of natural and upcycled materials such as earth-packed tires. They are solar powered, have greenhouses, and filter rain water to drink and eventually be used in the toilets and water plants in the greenhouse. The inventor was architect Michael Reynolds who helps teach people how to build their own earthships. A super cool way to live harmoniously with nature! #earthship#wastefree#ecofriendly#ecofriendlyliving#4change#zerowaste#recycled#homes#ecohouse#solarpower#reducewaste#recycle#greenhouse#sustainableliving#sustainability#sustainable#architecture#houses#savepower#savetheplanet#climateaction#nature

Not sure of the source of this quote, if you do, please let me know. Seems particularly apt in these times when our world leaders can’t even agree on the fact that we have a problem - species extinction, global warming, plastic pollution to name just a few. Is there one magic wand solution to the problem ? Probably not. Does this mean we stop trying ? Again no. It’s motivation to keep working at it and doing the best we can, in whatever way we can. Be the change and spread the message.

How about a Tuesday tour of a few things downstairs? We're trying to open a bit of space to help you have the best chance of finding what you need at our Pay $10: Take What You Need super basement refresh week! Thursday 2-6 + Saturday 10-4. Here are a few things we moved around today! (More tomorrow?) "But how do I use THIS?" you ask? We recommend plugging "DIY floppy disk" into Pinterest or google. "Jewel case craft ideas" or "Upcycle trophies" does the trick too! Research is fun! 1. Blast from the past: Floppy! We have a crate of these, plus some 3.5 inch ones 2. Trophies: great for customizing with paint and decor (see ours for inspiration!) 3. A box of art VHS tapes (PLUS A VCR not pictured) 4. Overwhelming amounts of fabric. Know any scouts, troop leaders, or sewing circles? 5. Tiles! We have an entire extra shelf of mysterious tile not yet uncovered. 6. Tons of cards, new and used! Great for collaging and making Mish mash ornaments! 7. DVD cases, jewel cases, game cases. Enough for your whole class to make something special! 8. Reel to reels! Can you find out whats on them? 9. MAT BOARD our favorite mat board from @bonfoeygallery is ready for you! 10. Used candles and stained glass pieces. Melt the candles, make better candles! #lesswastemoreart#upcycledart#upcycled#creativereuse#creativereusecenter#clevelandart#clevelandcreatives#inthe216#reducewaste#thisiscleveland#localcle

Sustainable Season Greetings 💚🎄💚 🎄Be realistic of how much food you actually need at Christmas. I know it’s nice to have treats but let’s try and reduce food wastage. 🎄Eat leftovers. Get creative with your leftovers or just make bubble & squeak! 🎄Freeze excess food. Better still don’t buy too much....so many environmental repercussions. 🎄There’s never a simple answer but one of the biggest ways to reduce your environmental impact is to eat less meat. 🎄Be mindful of where your food is coming from...an example being avocados and quinoa, prices have been pushed up so much by Western demand that they’ve become unaffordable to those who depend on them in their country of origin. 🎄or we fall into that trap of demand being so high that it becomes a driving force in illegal deforestation to make way for planting more. 🎄Buy local when you can but remember it’s not that simple as some developing countries rely on exporting to us 🎄avoid cheap processed foods (for health & environmental reasons). 🎄No matter what your arguments are for eating meat/fish/dairy at the end of the day it comes down to compassion but that’s just my opinion. 🎄It does puzzle me though why it’s ok to eat some animals but not others...apparently the term for that is cognitive dissonance. 🎄Here’s me stroking some lovely lambs, shame it’s not turkeys 💚

Loco fo’ Bananas 🍌 Bananas fo’ dayzzz yo! 🍌 I rarely eat one plain anymore, but no matter how you peel it @alex_gross2018@alex_gross812 it’s gonna be great! — I’ve also been known to simply smash/mash (whichever you prefer) a banana in a coffee mug with da heavy dose of Cocoa Powder & Cinnamon for a Chocolate 🍫 sweet treat full of indulgence. 🥂 Here’s to celebrating Food as it should be, fair for all and utilized appropriately. 👌 — if you EVER have any questions on what to use or how to use your produce or you are concerned of it “going bad” too soon, let me know and I’ll gladly give you some pointers! Lastly, S/O to @ballstate@bsudining for letting me snag these bananas 🍌 at just 5¢ each and the friendly staff member who spotted me 20¢ so I could grab these delights with a reduced rate to help reduce food waste. 🌱🌎💪💯💯 . . . . . . . #RealFood#SlowFood#Bananas#foodwaste#Nutrition#Rd2Be#Sustainability#Nutrition#Potassium#ClimateChange#UglyFruit@uglyfruitandveg#Fruit#reuse#reducewaste#Kitchen#Nutrition#zigzagnutrition#nicecream#Plantbased#healthyfood#food#healthy#baking#bananabread#banana

A YEAR IN REVIEW / / DAY 18: BE A PROUD HUMAN ▫️ When we first started our #betterhumanproject we were a little embarrassed to share our mission with our family, friends and colleagues. I am not sure why exactly - I think it may have been a mix of not feeling worthy enough to call ourselves better humans yet, the self-help stigma and the fear of being considered a tree hugging hippy. However, we have found that when we talk about our better human project, people are often interested and encouraging ▫️ It took some time, but we are now proud of our better human project and excited to share our journey with the people in our lives. However the one hurdle we still have is that fear of being annoying when it comes to sustainability. You know, being that person who will refuse to eat any of the food at an event because it is served plastic or who brings a whole picnic set to a family lunch - just in case ▫️ I almost opted out of our work Secret Santa because I didn't want to be part of an activity which would usually generate lots of waste. But I am glad that I was that "annoying" person as we are now having a #zerowastegift theme for our Secret Santa ▫️ Do you ever feel annoying when you try to stand up for, or make a point about, what you believe in? Any tips to get over it?

With Christmas comes shopping (and a lot of online shopping, at that). And unfortunately, that equates to significant waste. While I can bring my bags to the store, there’s nothing I can do when a store chooses to send me an item encased in bubble wrap and in a box twice its size. This year, however, I’m choosing to be more conscious — opting to order from stores, like @marieveronique_ here, that package their items responsibly, choosing to have my orders ship all together rather than in several plastic packages, and ordering online and then picking up in store. It’s the little things ♻️ • • • • #Christmas#christmasshopping#onlineshopping#packaging#recycle#packagingideas#ecofriendly#ecofriendlyliving#reducewaste#greenliving#sustainability#environment#minimalism#minimalove#naturelover#lovetheocean#seekthesimplicity#simpleandstill#myeverydaymagic#mindfulliving#greenlifestyle#recycler#mindfulconsumer#christmastime🎄#christmasgifts#protecttheplanet

Recycling is just a word, not a solution. We think that a recycling is the key to get rid if the plastic. Little do we know that only small percentage of plastic is made from recycled materials and even smaller part of it is actually going to be recycled ♻️☝🏽 —— Recyklace je pouze slovo, ne řešení. Spousta z nás si myslí, že recyklace je cestou k tomu, jak se zbavit nepotřebných plastů. Málo z nás ale ví, že pouze malý podíl vyrobených plastů je recyklovatelný a ještě menší část z nich nakonec opravdu zrecyklovaná bude ♻️☝🏽 #recycling#plastic#plasticwhale#plastics#zerowaste#zeroplastic#lessplastic#sustainability#gogreen#truth#educateyourself#trash#saveouroceans#saveourplanet#refuse#reuse#reduce#rot#ecofriendly#environment#recyklace#plast#pravda#neplastuj#bezplastu#reducewaste#bezplastu#noplastic#giveashit#upcycle#care

Eco max brushes are environmentally friendly and entirely handmade. They use natural unbleached materials and they can be put into a compost bin where they breakdown naturally, leaving only a piece of wire to recycle. . These are a great addition to your kitchen and would also make a great ethical and sustainable low-waste gift. We have veggie brushes, dish brushes, scrubbers and bottle cleaners 🙏🏼🌱 📸 @appleby09

🌻I used to buy an ‘earth friendly’ fabric softener, with the belief that it was good for me.. and good for the environment. Buuut you turn the bottle over and have a quick read... it’s not so earth friendly after all. . No matter, I’ve switched it out for my own softener that works just the same - but without a list of ingredients a mile long. . 1 & 1/2 Cups Epsom salts 1/2 Cup of Bicarb 20-30 Drops of any essential oil you choose (lemon and lemongrass are particularly helpful for stains) I chose Eucalyptus because we have tank water and with the lack of rain lately - and then it suddenly raining - the water from the roof is FILTHY ... so I need something that’s really going to kick any funky smells right in the ass. . This GIGANTIC jar took 7 & 1/2 cups of Epsom salts and 2 & 1/2 cups of bicarb to fill - but it will last me about 3 months. . . . . #mindbodysoul#holisticliving#greenlifestyle#healthyhappylife#wellnessjourney#hippielifestyle#nourishyourself#nontoxichome#nontoxicliving#hippievibes#cleanliving#essentialoils#essentials#essentialoil#youngliving#younglivingessentialoils#health#chemicalfree#chemicalfreeliving#chemicalfreehome#diy#diycleaning#cleaninghacks#cleaningtips#eucalyptus#holisticliving#reducewaste#conciousliving#minimalistliving

Time for a review! It’s been a few weeks since I got my shampoo+conditioner bar from @bulkbarnfoods and it gets a big thumbs up 👍 so far! My hair seemed a little dry after the first few uses but it’s adjusted and doing great now! I’ve barely made a dent in it so far, I basically rub it on my scalp for 3 seconds and then it lathers 🧼 up enough for all my hair. My $2.50 is going to go a long way! Also love my new mesh bag @emilymitchellpolci gifted me with for my soap! #reducewaste#shampoobar#plasticfree#frugalliving

I’ve been sent this from @fareshareuk to share on my socials since becoming a food waste ambassador. This time of year can be really overwhelming when you’re trying to reduce waste, in an environment of excess. As part of my internship I co-organise a bi-monthly meeting for which we ordered in Christmas themed catering. The snacks were only half-eaten and the only options were to throw things in the bin or take it all home somehow in the pouring rain... I couldn’t have it on my conscience to let perfectly good cake and mince pies go to waste, so I somehow strapped it all into my backpack and ran home through the rain. It ended up in a few disintegrated pies, but I put all the bits nobody in the house wanted on @olio_ex and someone who is struggling to make ends meet has requested to pick up the food tomorrow 😊

❗️Simply put: we have a plastic problem, and it doesn't end with straws. Still, the crusade to ban plastic straws is a means to create awareness about the absurdity of #singleuseplastic and its effects on our health, our environment, and our oceans.🌎 🧐Fact: Most plastic turns to trash after a single use. More than 79% of all plastic waste ends up in landfills, or gets stuck in the natural world, regardless of which sorting bin you put it in. Another 12% gets burned up in incinerators, adding to particulate matter to the atmosphere. It seems that only a remaining 9% is actually recycled. . 📸 Picture taken 1 week ago in Camps Bay, a fairly clean beach in #CapeTown, where I collected this amount of straws in the short distance of 50m. Not cool. . ➡️ Start where you are and remember that every single act matters. ➡️ Say “no thanks” to single use plastic. ➡️ Lead by example and join a beach cleanup whenever possible. It makes you feel amazing to know that no straw will go to the ocean because of you. 🙌
