Yesterday, I bought these mesh produce bags and I ❤ them for 2 main reasons: 1) They are helping the environment. They are such a superbly simple alternative to the plastic produce bags at the supermarket. #reduceplastic 🌏🌱 2) They were made by a #localcharity @wismacheshire , a residential, vocational training programme for adult men and women with mobility disabilities.👍#shoplocalindonesia

No extra pot? No problem! Used this lemon scrap as pot for the meantime then you can transfer the seedling to a much bigger pot once it has sprouted.😊 #reducereuserecycle #urbangardeningmomma #plantyourownfood
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Use your empty @noosayoghurt tubs to package up single-serve leftovers - they're perfect for portion control! #promo  #recyclenoosatubs #reducereuserecycle #creamofthecrop #noosayoghurt
Lovely vintage single flat sheet in very good condition. No tags but assume it a poly cotton blend as it’s nice and soft. Some very light centre fade, no marks or pulls. $15 plus postage, listed elsewhere.
Super pretty vintage double flat sheet in excellent condition. 50/50 poly cotton blend. No marks or pulls, much lovelier in real life! $20 plus postage, listed elsewhere.

Okay, I want to talk about plastic waste for just a second!! Something I use and never even thought about being plastic - my toothbrush! We all have one and we replace them multiple times a year, so that adds up. I recently came across bamboo toothbrushes as a solution. I did a little research and read some reviews and this brand was one of the top ranked choices, next to Brush with Bamboo. I got this pack of #Wowe bamboo toothbrushes on Amazon for $11.99 plus prime free shipping. The box is made of recycled materials and it comes with 4 brushes, which are supposed to last me a whole year. They're also numbered so if you want to hand them out to the family, you can know who's is who's. The brush is made completely of bamboo and is biodegradable. The bristles are BPA free and I'm actually really happy with their stiffness and the size and all of that. I actually like it better than my previous toothbrush. If you want to make them last even longer, use them for cleaning when you're done using them for your mouth. Next post will be on DIY/no-waste toothpaste... which I should have shared with you guys a long time ago 😬 sorry! 😘 #notanad P.S. there are also kid versions!!

I have committed to buying new as little as possible. Not only saves my money, it saves resources, reduces waste, and shares wealth. #secondhandfirst #sustainability #resilience #libraries #community #thredup #reducereuserecycle #borrow #buylesschoosewell

My cart vs a cart where EVERYTHING got put in a plastic bag. Do I have plastic in my cart? Absolutely. Do I have unnecessary plastic in my cart? Hell no - and neither should you. . . #noplastic #banplasticbags #reducereuserecycle #quitusingplastic #uselesswaste #heated
This is an @onyalife reusable produce bag 🍋🍐🍎. Australians use over 5,000,000 plastic bags per year and 20,700 tonnes worth of plastic is a deposited in landfill per year🙅🏻‍♀️. Make a #positivechange and reuse ♻️ some stuff😉.

Tiny coptic binding. Working around the idea of the seen cover, no glue on the boards. Appliqued a piece from a scrap of garbage fabric on to the cover. Pretty sure it had been on a house fire because it had been all burnt around the edges, I acquired it when I worked at a waste facility and have been saving it for whatevs. #recycle #reducereuserecycle #tinybook #bookstagram #boolbinding #copticbinding #fabricscraps #diy
The day finished off with a big ol’ bonfire and some cocktails before we went out into the open water in the pitch black and dived on in to see the bioluminescent plankton that fill the waters around the island! You can’t capture any of it in photographs, but the sight is absolutely incredible and one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen/done! #kohrong #ankounamatata #bioluminescentplankton #bonfire #beachtimes #chilltimes
Round 3, Day 21 #minsgame . When I started this round of the challenge I needed something positive to do while I recover from my injury. I was somewhat skeptical about being able to find things to give away without digging too deep into closets since I have limited mobility at the moment. But i wanted to try anyway. It's been a month and I keep finding stuff close to the surface. It's really amazing, the more you get rid of, the easier it gets, the more you are willing to let go off. It's like building muscles. I notice how different I feel now than 10 months ago when I did my first challenge. It's such a nice shift. It's liberating. I like nice packaging, esp small boxes. I had a box of jewelry boxes from the jewelry that was gifted to me over the years. Some of those boxes were so neat. I didn't want to get rid of them, but I didn't know what to do with them either. I figured someone who makes or sells jewelry could be interested. So I was able to find someone who makes jewelry and she happily took them off my hands. She also loved this backpack which I happily gave her as well. I've had this backpack for 20 years. My guess it spent most of those years in my closet. I don't think I've used it in at least 10 years. . . #thankyouandgoodbye #buynothingproject #reuse #reducereuserecycle #reduce #notrash #minimalism #zerowaste #repurposed #upcycle #mindfulness #greenliving #savetheplanet #ecofriendl #declutter #mindfulliving #saveplanet #savetheplanetearth #trashtotreasures #lessismore #minimalism
SUSTAINABILITY TIP #23 RETHINK YOUR WARDROBE 👚👕 FAST FASHION. Have you heard this term? It’s the reproduction of highly fashionable clothes at high speed & low cost. If you shop at Forever 21, H&M, Target, Gap, American Apparel, Old Navy, Charlotte Russe, ZARA, Esprit, and Walmart (to name a few of the many)… you are directly contributing to fast fashion. The demand for such cheap “fashionable” clothing comes with the cost of horrific garment factory (sweatshop) conditions in other countries including Bangladesh, Cambodia, China and Indonesia. Workers producing our fast fashion apparel are exposed to bottom of the barrel working conditions, are exposed to horrible health & safety risks, are severely underpaid and child labor is definitely a real thing. Bangladesh is particularly known for its cheap labor; there are nearly 4 million garment production workers, 85% of them are women, in over 5,000 factories. I remember in 2013 when I heard about the Bangladesh factory (known as the Rana Plaza) that collapsed in April of that year; the structure of this five story factory failed resulting in the death of 1,134 people & injuring nearly 2,500. My heart sank and I had no words for what is still considered the deadliest garment accident in history. Have you seen the documentary “The True Cost”? If not, this is a MUST! Please, WATCH IT. This documentary illuminates not only this horrific Bangladesh factory collapse, but it really shows you how destructive our culture’s obsession with new clothing and fashion is. In addition to the thousands upon thousands of lives we are subjecting to the worst living & working conditions around the globe so we can boost our egos by dressing well, we are also taxing our environment. Fast fashion is a major source of water pollution, relies heavily on toxic chemicals and produces an atrocious amount of textile waste. Textile dyeing is the second largest polluter of water GLOBALLY, second to agriculture. CONTINUED BELOW 👇
One of the things that I've been passionate about this year is cutting down on our household waste. The easiest change was buying in bulk! I use reusable mesh or cloth bags to buy in bulk and then store in glass mason jars. I am far from perfect but we have cut down SO much in the amount of trash we produce. We have the smallest trash bin in the neighborhood which is never even close to full and we're a family of 4. I'd say we've done a great job so far in the 2 months of 2018. #zerowaste #reducereuserecycle #savetheplanet #weonlyhaveone #vegan #bulkfood #masonjar #smallchanges #greenliving #cheaper #savemoney
First time seeing this much "ocean trash" and it stretches the heartstrings for sure. As a breathing human being, witnessing this feels so wrong... the trash line continued down the beach for as far as I could see. It motivates me to do something about it, and hopefully others too. As one person you can easily help: skip the plastic silverware (buy some nice wooden utensils!), skip the plastic bag (buy a reusable one or use a daypack), refuse with your whole being plastic straws, try not to use styrofoam (scattered into tiny bits on the beach 😧), try not to loose your sneakers, say no to plastic bottles (buy a reusable one and refill it when available). Being in a country with non-potable water makes bottled water very popular and refill stations aren't always available, so do the best you can and find the balance! The hardest part with switching to reusables is changing your habits - very doable I'd say 😊 I have been witness to many locals in Southeast Asia blatantly littering, whether that's because of lack of education or lack of trash cans, who knows. I appreciate our trash and recycling programs in the west because it gives us the opportunity to make a difference 💚♻️🌊 Next time you are out, notice how many items come in plastic. Awareness is huge. Any other ideas for saving the 🌏?

While holidaying in Koh Phangan, I observed how single-use plastic was being used everywhere. Bottled water is the norm. I’m not sure how the island is kept so clean, and I’d like to think that Thailand is diligent with its recycling measures, but it’s not healthy to fall back on that even if it were true. The Mr and I brought our own bottle from home, and it was big enough to fit in two delicious dairy-free fruit shakes, made by this wonder of a lady. We do our best to stay as mindful consumers everywhere we go. #makegreenmainstream #gogreen #ecofriendly #reducereuserecycle #supportlocal #tropicalfruits #islandlife #travels #thailand #kohphangan #waterbottle #consumerism #zerowaste #saynotoplastic
TRASH DOES NOT DISAPPEAR! It may look like our trash magically goes away with the garbage truck, but the reality is that most of the items that once passed through your hands will stay in this planet much longer than you, sometimes forever! Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! 🖤 ________________ O LIXO NÃO DESAPARECE! Pode até parecer que o lixo desaparece magicamente junto com o caminhão, mas na realidade a maior parte dos itens que passam pelas suas mãos existirão muito além de você, muitas vezes para sempre! Reduza! Reusa! Recicle! 🙌🏻
I’m loving my beeswax wraps from @regal_wraps ! I got these at end of 2017 from the delightful team at @researchnutrition. Beeswax wraps have really helped me stay on track with my goal of decreasing my footprint on the environment! Woo hoo! One of my motivated, talented mates @thewellnessthread even made her own wraps, but If making it isn’t something you are up for check out your local health food store or @nourishedlife ! #environment #reducereuserecycle #lovetheenvironment #sustainableliving #saynotoplastic #healthyorganic #savethebees #naturopathy #melbournefoodie #organic #health #carbonfootprint

My cloth produce bags in action! How wonderful is it to bring home your fresh produce, and not have your pantry or bin filled with plastic bags afterwards?! Some people may worry that the weight of the bag will add cost, but if the grocer doesn't first deduct the weight of the bag like mine did this morning, you could always just bag your goods after having them weighed. - #zerowaste #plasticfree #gogreen #sustainableliving #protectmotherearth #reducereuserecycle #reducewaste #HandcraftByBridget #reusableproducebags #reuseablebag #fruitandveg
Tried my hand at some low cost low waste gift wrapping... more personal, pretty cute. I’d say it’s a win. #craftsy #reducereuserecycle #stamplove

I found a use for some more scrap wood that I had lying around. I did use screws but it’s just a workbench to get me through my vacation. I also snagged a whole bunch of offcuts from a jewelry box class so I could make some smaller boxes. #reducereuserecycle #woodworking #workbench #jewlerybox #wood #organizing #woodwork #mixandmatch
" Yes. Love is blind. " ___________ Sawfish have one of the most prized fins for use in shark fin soup. Its rostal teeth are being used for cockfighting spurs and the saw as a novelty item. All 5 species of #sawfish has diminished without anyone noticing and they are currently rated as endangered or critically endangered.
