We’ve both definitely felt that it can be easy to get overwhelmed or weighed down sometimes when trying to live more sustainably.⠀ ⠀ But hey, nobody is perfect! And we’ve come to realise that just by taking little steps in the right direction (towards a world that’s kinder to humans, animals & earth), then that’s already doing a whole lot of good. 🍃💚⠀ ⠀ What little steps do you like to take? What’s important to you?

Have you heard of BedZED? Built in 2002, it was (and remains!) a pioneer of the eco-village concept. In its 100 homes, innovative design reduces energy needs and taps solar power. BedZED has gone down in history as the UK’s first large-scale, mixed-use sustainable community. It has been an inspiration for low-carbon, environmentally friendly housing developments around the world.⁣ ⁣ BedZED’s biggest and most important success is that it remains an attractive and popular place to live, demonstrating that a large shift towards sustainable living doesn't need to entail sacrifice and discomfort. ⁣ ⁣ We all need to start thinking a whole lot more about our homes and how we've decided to live. A couple of us are from the EU so we're particularly passionate about seeing the size of standard huge homes decrease (America & Australia, that's you with the biggest in the world!) as that also allows for more sustainable and environmental solutions to be implemented along with increased community - and a lot less stuff to buy to keep in them :)

Cold hard facts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Repost@nowhereandeverywhere_ with @get_repost ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The meat and dairy industries are on track to be the world's biggest contributors to climate change. A new report from the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy and GRAIN has said that if these industries continue down their current path, the livestock sector could be responsible for 80% of the allowable greenhouse gas budget by 2050.⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When taken together, the world’s top five meat and dairy corporations are already responsible for more emissions than ExxonMobil, Shell or BP! China, the US, the EU, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand are the major contributors - collectively responsible for over 60% of global meat and dairy emissions – about twice the rest of the world on a per capita basis.⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meat and dairy also contribute to a significant amount of land clearing - a paper published by Poore and Nemecek in the journal Science last year found that if everyone stopped eating meat and dairy products, global farmland use could be reduced by three quarters. The authors suggested that eating less meat is “the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whilst we advocate for many environmental issues and actions, significantly reducing your meat intake is simply one of the best things you can do whether you ultimately choose to do it for animal rights, health or environmentalism 🍂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #eatrealfood#mostlyplants#nottoomuch#eatlessmeat#eatmoreplants#giveitago#itsnotthathard#somanybenefits#youwouldbesurprised#oneplanet#earth#zerowaste#ecofriendly#eco#greenliving#love#sustainability#sustainable#live#reduce#reuse#recycle#reduce#rot#waronwaste#waronwasteau#vegan#veganuary#neverthoughtiwouldbevegan#notinamillionyears

Today I got to meet some of the friendly team at @mavendentalleopold. We are a drop off point for dental care products with Terracycle but are on the wait list to be able to send what we collect due to the high demand of this type of recycling and concise budget Colgate are able to provide (they sponsor the program 🙌🏻👏🏻). Maven dental on the other hand are a drop off point and are able to send their products so they kindly let us buddy up and bring in ours so we could fill a box together to send off! I was really impressed with the sustainability habits the staff had implemented where they could in the workplace, it was really refreshing and gratifying to hear about these. There are no boundaries or limitations to things people can do when they work together. Well done to you Maven Dental, you are setting a great example 🙌🏻❤️

This is the reality but it doesn’t have to be. ⁣ ⁣ Working in the aged and disability sector I witnessed firsthand (like in this photo) how a zero waste, plastic free way of live cannot be achieved for some. Items that are unnecessary for me are important to another. Pre-cut packaged fruit and vegetables are important to others because they no longer have the strength to cut their own due to their hands being riddled with arthritis. Having microwaved meals instead of cooking themselves because the thought of standing, sitting or bending to prepare a meal for a period of time causes aches and pains in all their joints. Not being able to buy products that aren’t packaged in plastic because plastic is the only option, supporting brands that are Australian made, The cost of buying plastic free is unaffordable because they are on the pension. ⁣ These are just a few examples that my clients face on a daily basis. ⁣ ⁣ The term “zero waste” is something that we are striving towards. This is something that I will be devoting my time to this year going straight to the source and demanding companies and organisations to change the way they package their products.

Zero Waste dental products, how do they rate really? I know we promised a while
Zero Waste dental products, how do they rate really? I know we promised a while back to get a dentist’s opinion on zero waste oral care options. Finally I made it in today for a check up 🦷 with mine and it was interesting to hear his thoughts. He was surprised to hear about bamboo toothbrushes, he hadn’t seen any 😮but was quite supportive about the idea of them as a way to reduce plastic waste in landfill. I really wish I’d brought one in to show him, but instead the proof was in the brushing. He gave me a 9.5 out of 10 for the condition of my teeth, which I’ve been brushing with a bamboo brush for six months now. I also showed him the Zero Waste toothpaste in a jar that we had road tested briefly. He diligently took a copy of the ingredients and said he’d get back to me once he’s looked into it. One of the things he was able to clear up on the spot was the issue of fluoride. Is it essential to brush your teeth with it? Well, no... and yes, as it turns out. Once you are over the age of 14 fluoride becomes less crucial in preventing decay. The most important element is your brushing technique and if you floss. However, whether or not you need to brush with fluoride depends a lot on the individual conditions in your mouth. Saliva production and distribution can vary a lot throughout your life and have a big effect on tooth decay. Without knowing your individual circumstances you are best advised to check with your dentist before choosing a Zero Waste toothpaste without fluoride in it. So how do you avoid the waste then of those plastic tubes? Get on the web and find your nearest @terracycle@terracycleanz drop off point. Terracycle have partnered with Colgate to recycle used oral care products such as toothpaste tubes, floss containers and the plastic brushes, too. And why not encourage your dentist to join the Terracycle program at your next check up? They can apply to become a drop off point online. I told my dentist all about the program and he’s quite interested in the idea, so he’s going to check it out! Have you ditched your plastic toothbrush and/or toothpaste for an eco option? How’s it working out for you?

The meat and dairy industries are on track to be the world's biggest contributor
The meat and dairy industries are on track to be the world's biggest contributors to climate change. A new report from the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy and GRAIN has said that if these industries continue down their current path, the livestock sector could be responsible for 80% of the allowable greenhouse gas budget by 2050.⁣ ⁣ When taken together, the world’s top five meat and dairy corporations are already responsible for more emissions than ExxonMobil, Shell or BP! China, the US, the EU, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand are the major contributors - collectively responsible for over 60% of global meat and dairy emissions – about twice the rest of the world on a per capita basis.⁣ ⁣ Meat and dairy also contribute to a significant amount of land clearing - a paper published by Poore and Nemecek in the journal Science last year found that if everyone stopped eating meat and dairy products, global farmland use could be reduced by three quarters. The authors suggested that eating less meat is “the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth”. ⁣ ⁣ Whilst we advocate for many environmental issues and actions, significantly reducing your meat intake is simply one of the best things you can do whether you ultimately choose to do it for animal rights, health or environmentalism 🍂

Sometime in the middle of last year I commented on a Facebook image about how beautiful this fabric was, telling my friend how fun it would be to make some #BoomerangBags using it. A day later the lady from Canberra who purchased it from an op shop then offered to send some up to Brisbane. Of course I excitedly responded with gratitude and not long after I was holding fabric that was printed during the same year I was born. Last week I finally made time to sit down and complete this bag as a thank-you, and will be mailing it to her today. I love how generous and kind some people are. By the way, the @bbnundah (who I volunteer with) will have a limited amount of bags made using this fabric available later this year, so keep your eyes peeled. #BbNundah#Brisbane#Nundah#bag#byobag#choosetoreuse#WarOnWasteAU#vintage#handmade#sewsustainable#Australian

Life gave me lemons! 🍋🍋🍋 Well, actually the nice lady on the Buy Nothing group gave me lemons. 😀💛 There's a few people in my suburb who have lemon trees that just can't help themselves but produce lemon after lemon after lemon, and their owners share the lemons with the rest of the neighbours.🙏 People often put lemons out by the front gate, but the Buy Nothing group really helps ensure they get used. Someone will post to say "I've got lemons, they are out the front" or someone (like me!) will post and say "does anyone have any spare lemons?"💬 In this case the owners can give the tree a shake and pop the harvest on the door step, knowing it will be taken.👍 (Sometimes it is even better than lemons - last week I scored some surplus AVOCADOS! 😍) In a couple of years I hope our lemon trees produce enough that I can do the same 😀

Beeswax Wraps are still our core product here at SUSTOMi. They’ve also acted as a base to expand our sustainable food storage range. Designed, manufactured and distributed from our studio in Hobart. As a sustainable company, we also focus on being transparent about what our products are made from, how they’re made and how to dispose of them at the end of their life. The Beeswax Wraps are highly sustainable, created from organic cotton fabric – custom designed in our Hobart Studio, Tasmanian beeswax, jojoba oil and natural tree resin. We make and pack all the wraps in Hobart to be distributed across Australia and the world. When your wrap is reaching the end of its life there are a couple of options, you can use our DIY Mix to re-wax your wrap or you can cut it up and place it into the compost. If you don’t have a compost, it goes into the bin and off to landfill. The positive is that it quickly breaks down in landfill, instead of hanging around for the next 500 years plus! • • • • • • • #sustomi#sustoming#beeswaxwraps#foodwrap#noplastic#beeswax#organiccotton#lunchbox#lunchwrap#tasmanianbusiness#waronwasteau#zerowaste#zerowastestyle#zerowastekitchen#sustainable#sustainability#ecofriendly#zerowastehome#zerowastejourney#zerowastewarrior#zerowasteinstyle

Are you ready to start planning your back to school shopping? I know a lot of schools are aiming to reduce plastic waste - and here’s one way you can help - with a reusable sandwich wrap!⠀ .⠀ The outside is a fibre made from recycled plastic bottles and the inside is a food safe pvc plastic you can wipe clean. The sandwich wrap folds around your sandwich or bread roll just like plastic wrap, and seals with Velcro. Easy for little fingers to manage!⠀ .⠀ Each wrap has a space for your child’s name so it won’t get lost!⠀ .⠀ Made by the reputable reusable company #Onya .⠀ #backtoschool#reusablelunchwrap#lunch#lunchbox#schoollunch#thinkreusable#onyalife#zerowaste#noexcuseforsingleuse#waronwasteAU#bethechange#sustainable#eco#choosetoreuse#circulareconomy#consciousconsumer#createchange#createchangeinyou#createchangeinyourenvironment#practicalgifts#ecofriendly#choose#loveyourenvironment#breathe#feelgood#soulexperienceshop

Full day out and going to the Australian Open. Just some of the reusables I’ll be bringing! ♻️ > water bottle (I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this water bottle. It is leak proof, however, if you overfill it it will leak and you have to screw it on properly, otherwise it will leak. It’s not the easiest water bottle compared to my smaller ones but it’s just a really good size when I’m out for the day ✌🏽) > insulated steel cup > coffee cup > napkin and cutlery > pastry bag > takeaway tin container (I’ve just bought some fruit to snack on for the day) 🍑 Obviously, this is a lot to carry around, and there shouldn’t be an expectation that you should carry all of this around. I mostly carry all of this around because I tend to get very hangry if I don’t eat and NO ONE wants to see me hangry. It gets pretty darn ugly 🧟‍♂️ #blah#imalreadyhungry

Tip 2 for waste less parties. Do away with plastic cups, plates,table clothes, straws and cutlery. 🙌 here we used little glass bottles with reuseable metal straws and some paper straws which were composted with the food waste. Table cloths are hessian which we wash and use each party (left over from our wedding!). Plates and cutlery were from our camping kit and went in a box to was at home. Do you have a tip for #wastefreeparties ?

There is nothing like a horrible black mark on your gorgeous wood platforms to make a statement, and not exactly the kind you love 😖. Before you consider donating or trowing your beatiful platforms away, keep reading these easy tricks to do at home and save your shoes 😏. . -Gently erase the mark or scuff with an school-grade eraser.(make sure is a plain one, not a colour one) -If the mark does not come off, you can use a slightly damp cotton towel, be careful not to overwet, as water can be damaging to the wood.You can add a bit of wooden floor cleaner. Let them dry for a few minutes. -Take a small amount of coconut oil/olive oil in a cotton cloth and spread it all over the wood surface. . And voila!! They are ready to hit the dance floor again💃 Do you have any other trick to look after your beloved shoes? Share it with us 👇

Not all magic has to be bright and colourful ✨ this beauty is definately more muted than the rest of its kiln load, but I love it so much anyway. It's almost a tortoise shell combination of colours.. a beige oatmeal that has surprising depth and beautiful warm dripping brown.. I love how this combination shows off the splatters and drips so beautifully too! 😍a couple of my cups I made last week were a little bit too short and wide to really be cups (still getting the hang of being back on the wheel haha!) so I think they'll make perfect little bowls instead. I'm tempted to keep one for a perfect little breakfast bowl for serving smoothie bowls, muesli or whatever else.. because I can never eat that big a breakfast anyway 😂hope you all have a beautiful Monday lovelies 😘🌞✨
