Itโ€™s finally arrived!! Thank you @bestnaturaldeodorant for the zerowaste shipment of this incredibly made, all natural, sustainable packaged, ethically sourced...you get the picture. It smells amazing and I can finally wear deodorant guilt free. AND for every deo you buy, they give one year of clean water to someone in a developing country. Win-win-win.

Gifting for the unimaginative zero waster ๐ŸŒฟ Friendly reminder that most fancy alcohol comes in glass, so this year I'm gifting my family some Spanish wine for Christmas as I know they'll appreciate it (my dad basically asked for it!). I can even get organic, vegan wine quite cheap here ๐Ÿท I've wrapped it in newspaper as gift wrap, partly as wrapping paper and also the multiple layers will protect it in transit (it's further rolled up in a foam camping mat) and I've tied the top with a piece of ribbon I cut out of some clothing I got second hand a while back. Pretty low waste, pretty good taste ๐Ÿพ โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #zerowastejourney #zerowaste #zerowastechristmas #plasticfree #consumeconsciously #consciouschristmas #eco #wine #zerowastegift #simplegift #lowimpacttravel #lowimpactliving #lowimpactmovement #vegan #veganwine #organicwine #lessplastic #upcycle #recycle

Zero waste-ish grocery haul! . I had already bought enough veggies for the week and some of next week on Tuesday so today I thought I'd just get a few things that I needed at the regular grocery store. This is when I realized how privileged I am to have a local green grocer near me who sells (almost) all fruit and veggies loose. I only needed this cabbage and spring onions. I ended up having to go to a different supermarket on the way home because almost everything in my local Jumbo was covered in plastic..I find it very hypothetical that they try to be green by offering paper bags instead of plastic bags but what use does it have if you can't use them because everything is wrapped in plastic? . The Albert Heijn wasn't any better but at least they had the cabbage I needed, spring onions and some loose lychees.

Day Two - Less Zero The โ€˜Zero Waste Christmasโ€™ Guides doing the rounds caught my attention recently and Iโ€™m not sure theyโ€™re all giving good advice. . โ˜•๏ธ Gifting reusable products is often suggested as an eco gift but replacing what people already have, if it does the job, is wasteful. Reusables arenโ€™t zero waste because of the materials/energy used to create them. A reusable coffee cup needs to save up to 100 single use cups (depending on the material) to make it more eco friendly. Although, if you know itโ€™s something they need, want and will use often then reusables make a good gift. . . ๐ŸŽ Wrapping gifts in fabric or cotton bags seems to be the โ€˜thingโ€™ this year but buying fabric for this purpose is wasteful. Cotton production is polluting and has a big water footprint (even organic cotton). Even if you use fabric or bags you already own, if the recipient doesnโ€™t use re-purpose them they are single use. In that case wrapping in non recyclable paper or plastic would more eco friendly. You could use fabric and ask for it back to use again otherwise using magazines, newspaper or recyclable gift wrap are better options. . . ๐Ÿซ Iโ€™ve always considered food gifts to be #zerowaste especially when theyโ€™re home made and in repurposed or minimal packaging. However, food production does have big footprint. Weโ€™re told we need to drastically reduce our meat, egg, sugar and milk consumption in the next decade to limit climate change. Many of the foods we gift at Christmas will contain one or more of these ingredients as well as palm oil and cocoa which are associated with deforestation. So while it doesnโ€™t create much household rubbish, gifting home made sweet treats isnโ€™t really zero waste either. . . Iโ€™ve done my research on this (link๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป) and was worried about posting because it sounds a bit ๐Ÿ˜ฉBUT there are some positive things here. No gift is truly zero waste (maybe a hug?!) so letโ€™s not feel bad about choosing things which arenโ€™t on the โ€˜eco friendlyโ€™ lists. My aim is to buy well made things that will last and I know will be well used. (Also no pressure to learn that Japanese fabric wrapping ๐Ÿ˜œ) Let me know your thoughts๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป . . #twelvedaysofless

My colleague and good friend @suhassaya today excitedly shared with us his zero waste journey. . Over the past three months, all the soft plastic waste his family of 4 generated has been shredded and stuffed into these pillows. . Looking at it, you won't even realize that these pillows contains what we otherwise consider as waste and throw out. . He is someone who inspires us and everyone around him to follow green trails at heart! . #inspiring #inspiringstories #zerowastejourney #zerowasteliving #Upcycling #saynotolandfills #saynotowaste #wastetoart #toogoodtowaste #loveit

As someone with verrry sensitive and dry skin, I was particularly intrigued by the idea of making my own body lotion as I depend on it daily. Store-bought lotions are filled with chemicals (some that companies don't even need to mention and just hide behind the word "fragrance"). I highly recommend watching the documentary @stinkmovie if you have the chance (on Netflix). It sheds light on how little we know about what actually goes into our products and how poorly the FDA regulates chemical usage in said products. โ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿšซ So, I tried making my own lotion using a recipe a friend gave me and I hope to never have to go back to store-bought lotion again! The ingredients are uncomplicated, the steps are easy-peasy and the hydration is bangin'๐Ÿ’ฅNot to mention it can be made without producing plastic waste and could make a wonderful xmas gift ๐Ÿ™ƒ Here's the recipe: ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡ โ€ข 1 tbsp cocoa butter โ€ข 2 tsp beeswax โ€ข 1/4 cup coconut oil โ€ข 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp almond oil ๐Ÿ’šMelt all ingredients over double boiler, remove from heat ๐Ÿ’šMix as it cools (I like to beat it with a mixer for a few minutes) ๐Ÿ’šPour into a warm glass jar. ๐Ÿ’šCool at room temperature. ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘† Last time I made this I added a bit more beeswax to make it firmer. You could also add some essential oils if you'd like (although it's important to make sure they are ok to apply directly to skin), but the cocoa butter gives it a nice smell so it's not necessary. Though I do love this recipe, I'm always looking for suggestions/recommendations on beneficial natural ingredients to include in a homemade lotion for very dry skin. Any tips? ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒฑ . . . . . . . . . . . . #zerowastebathroomessentials #zerowastebathroom #diybodybutter #diybodycare #lowwastehacks #naturalwellness #zerowastejourney #makeyourown #noplanetb #lowimpactmovement #zerowastecollective #yayforearth #intentionalliving #consciousbeauty

Have you ever heard about the three Rโ€™s? The three Rโ€™s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Reduce means using fewer resources and reducing the amount of waste you produce.โœ… Reuse means that before you recycle or dispose of anything you can find ways to use them again.โœ… Recycle is a process to change waste materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. โœ…๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’šโ™ป๏ธ #DSBags #sustainableliving #sustainability #zerowaste #zerowastetravel #minimalism #wastefree #zerowastehome #farmersmarket #sustainabletravel #plasticfree #journeytozerowaste #goingzerowaste #nowaste #ecofriendly #earthloverโ€จ #reducewaste #lesswaste #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastejourney #sustainablelifestyle #reducereuserecycle #reusablebag #ecofriendlyproduct #savetheplanet

Not a very exciting picture, I'll be honest! We go through a lot of beans and until now we've always defaulted to Heinz. The best value Heinz beans are a 4 pack wrapped in plastic. Single cans are double the price. These @morrisons own brand ones are even cheaper than the 4 pack Heinz ones and taste just as good. Saving plastic with a cheaper option for once!

Friday Feature: Sisal Soup Pouch (only ยฃ4) ๐Ÿšฟ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ This soap pouch is made from 100% biodegradable sisal. Sisal is natural fibre that comes from the Agave Sisalana plant and is stronger and more durable than other natural fibres. ๐Ÿšฟ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ The soap pouch is perhaps one of my favourite products. My passion for it has taken me by surprise - I wasnโ€™t sure such strong feelings were possible for a bathroom product! But hereโ€™s why I love it: ๐Ÿ’š1. It lathers the soap really easily. It can take a few washes for a brand new soap bar for it to soften a little and work its way into the fibres a bit. But once it has, there are foamy bubbles galore as I rub it over my skin ๐Ÿ’š2. The sisal is excellent at buffing away dry skin - my skin is so soft and smooth since Iโ€™ve started using it ๐Ÿ’š3. After showering, I hang it up and it dries throughout the day, ready for use the next morning ๐Ÿ’š4. It means I actually use every last little bit of the soap bar, and those tiny little bits donโ€™t go scudding down the plug hole ๐Ÿ’š5. I donโ€™t have to wait until the soap bar has completely finished - as soon as itโ€™s getting a bit small, I just add the next bar to the pouch As you can see, Iโ€™m very much in love ๐Ÿ’š with my soap pouch ;-) ๐Ÿšฟ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ I just let my soap pouch dry over the day. However, if you'd like to wash your soap pouch every once in a while, it's simple: just take out the soap and wash it at 30 degrees. ๐Ÿšฟ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ So what is Sisal? Sisal fibres come from the leaves of the Agave Sisalana cactus. Approximately 1,000 fibres are extracted from a single leaf. Sisal is an excellent renewable resource and can even form part of the overall solution to climate change, because, measured over its life-cycle, sisal absorbs more carbon dioxide than it produces! it at 30 degrees. ๐Ÿšฟ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ In addition, the processing of Sisal generates mainly organic wastes and leaf residues that can be used to generate bio-energy or produce animal feed, fertiliser and ecological housing material. At the end of its life cycle, sisal is 100 percent biodegradable. Pretty cool, huh? . . . . . #hydrophil #sisal #soappouch #biodegradable #waterneutral #vegan #fairtrade #sustainableliving #fridayfeature #featuredproduct
