Carry your own tableware: DIY cotton cutlery case which contains a metal spoon, fork, knife and straws along with a cotton napkin.
My first big step towards being zero waste and living consciously. Single use plastic is detrimental for the environment, animal life as well as our health.
It's a known fact that it takes hundreds of years for a single piece of plastic to breakdown in the environment. Plastic cutlery has cancer causing properties which affect our health over time.
Carrying your own cutlery shouldn't be a challenge. Please give it a try.
Say NO to disposable/single use cutlery.
Say NO to plastic.
Please get in touch with me if you need to acquire anything from this post.

Yesterday got to spend my day with the lovely founders of sustainable/ethical model Agency @rolemodelsmgmt
and her partner @malibumama__
🧡 So proud of these two for making the change we all wish would happen in our industry!!! We ate our way through so many incredible vendors at the Eat Drink Vegan festival, and washed it all down with organic kombucha and wine✨We remembered to bring our reusable cups and cutlery too;) So nice to be surrounded my so many likeminded people who are conscious of the earth and the animals🐓🐄❤️ Finished off the day with an incredible meal at Little Pine Bc yep we still had room in our stomachs for more vegan food...😏🤤
I can’t wait for Sunday morning...☕️🎶

So this is Hannah, she’s about to turn 5 and I thought I would do something really cool for her since 5 is such a special age! She’s not related to me but I do love her so I decided to put my crafty skills to work. I got my mom to show me how to use a sewing machine and spent most of Friday and Saturday morning making this denim beauty. It was my first try so there are a few quirks but I had a lot of fun so I’ll definitely be making more and in time, get better. I up-cycled a men’s large pair of jeans from the thrift store and turned it into this.👖➡️🎒♻️DM if interested in getting your hands on one these.✌🏼 #reducereuserecycle #upcycledclothing #denim
Week 3. Once again, this weeks’s family garbage is dominated by meat related things: bones, those plastic/paper absorbent pads on meat trays, and new this week, our BBQ grease (I cleaned out the BBQ). Laminated foil food wrappers too. A better person than me would refrain from saying that there’s only one meat eater here in this house and it ain’t me! But I’m still HUGELY impressed with how said spouse has embraced this challenge. I think I’m going to actually hide or re-purpose our former garbage bin. #reducereuserecycle #zerowaste #josieandgeorgetryzerowaste
... turning minutes into moments
They say something about productive mornings... dressing the bed is one thing I’ve always tried to make fast and fun. I sewed the pillow cases from old curtains from @sam_i_am_pnw @mikey.paez
old house in Bellingham. (The sugar skull pillowcases were a gift to Michael). The yellow quilt and shams used to be baby pink, now a sunny yellow. I recently tie dyed the comforter to match it all, with taupe and bright yellow. Most likely more experimenting and dying to come. If you don’t like something put your mark on it. #goodmorning #artistsoninstagram #tyedye #create #abstract #justcallmeroach
Look for more textiles to come 😎✨☀️ #upcycle #recycle #reducereuserecycle
Plastic silverware, containers, and wrappers are some of the most common trash found on the beach. Opt for glass over plastic whenever you have the choice. We're proud to use glass bottles for many of our products, including our face and body oils. 🐳

On my personal Facebook account, videos have been popping up about trash whether it’s in the ocean or the length of time it takes to decompose, and it’s sad. One video had a turtle with a plastic straw stuck up it’s nose 😢. Another one showed the Taj Mahal yellowing and turning green from air pollution while the river it’s close to is polluted with trash and raw sewage.
I have a garbage bag that I fill with plastic grocery bags, then when it’s filled, I take to either Wal-Mart or Target to recycle. My bag is full and it’s embarrassing to mention how long the bag has been sitting in my apartment waiting for me to recycle.
With the buildup of videos and grocery bags, it brought me back to this video on @buzzfeednifty
and I knew what I was going to do:
It takes 20 grocery bags to make this tote. I counted and sorted the bags and I have enough to make 9 totes!
It won’t end pollution or save the world overnight, but I felt empowered to make a positive change. This was something I could do and had control over. I feel strongly that it’s our responsibility to be active, to make positive changes, because it might not be an immediate problem now, but in the future it could be and we’ll be left to deal with an even bigger problem then.

If everyone in America recycled just one plastic bottle, those materials could make more than 54 million T-shirts or about 6.5 million fleece jackets.
If everyone recycled one aluminum can, 295 million new aluminum cans could be made. Everyone recycling just one can would reduce green house gas emissions equivalent to taking 6,750 passenger cars off the road and save energy equivalent to 80 thousand barrels of oil.
If everyone recycled one plastic bag, those materials could be reused in making 28,906 park benches or, 144,530 16-foot composite deck boards.
Animals are dying from something WE CAN CHANGE!
RECYCLING MAKES A DIFFERENCE💚💙🌎♻️
This is how I buy in bulk. Not as pretty as jars and produce bags, but it's the best I can do in my situation. That's 3kg,of pasta, 2kg of oats and 10kg of rice, and it lasts foreeeeeeeever! I then use the bags for other things when they're empty. Buying this way reduces plastic packaging overall compared to buying lots of smaller quantities, and it works out cheaper in the long run. ❤️🌍😀 #buyinbulk #zerowasteuk #pointlessplastic
This is NOT an I hate amazon post (because I adore it) it is a let’s ALL be a little bit - or a lotta bit - better about how we are wasting an absolutely ridiculous amount. Yes I ordered bonjela, mo I did not order air. #wastenotart
