I got Jerusalem artichokes from my mom’s friend. Made purée and served it with cod and steamed carrots (from a farm nearby). Love making meals out of local food!❤️

Heute starte ich meinen nächsten größeren Trip per Bahn statt mit Auto oder Flugzeug! Ich habe mich schon beim hinsetzen in den IC gefreut wie Bolle! Ich kann in Ruhe schlafen, habe einen schönen Ausblick (besonders gefällt es mir bislang kurz hinter Koblenz!) und die 6h Fahrt schrecken mich nicht ab. Klar bleibt ein kleines Restrisiko: „Was ist, wenn ein Zug ausfällt?🤪“ Aber damit lebe ich gerne! Ein Flug nach Basel würde das 7fache an CO2 ausstoßen und zudem auch noch eine Menge anderes Zeug in die Umwelt blasen! Also warum bei solche Strecken nicht umdenken, wenn es Alternativen gibt?
Ich liebe es jedenfalls❤️ Was mich allerdings hart upfucked, ist die Tatsache, dass Bahn fahren oft teurer ist als Autofahren. Das erschließt sich nicht für mich und verleitet natürlich dazu aufs Auto umzuschwenken! Ich bin gespannt, ob das „tolle“ neue Klimaschutzpaket da wirklich was dran ändern wird.

Erano ormai finite le nostre scorte di prodotti sfusi, perciò siamo dovuti volare in centro con un enorme carico di vasetti vuoti riciclati. Questa è una parte della nostra spesa #goingzerowaste : invitante, nevvero?

Repost from @savers_thrift: "Trendy but make it eco-friendly 🌺🦋" Did you know that collectively, the fashion industry requires a huge amount of water at every stage of clothing production? Growing one kilogram of cotton requires 5,300 gallons of water! Shop at your local thrift store to create your own unique look and do it sustainably!

On June 10, 1999, a gasoline pipeline exploded in Bellingham, WA. It ruptured due to various errors/malfunctions due to faults on Olympic Pipeline's part. The gasoline vapors exploded and sent a fireball down to Whatcom Creek, which is pictured here. Luckily, it went through restoration in 2013. See the before and after!

Iceland is one of the most sustainable countries in the world. Why? They transformed its energy system so that 100% of its electricity production and home heating is provided by domestic renewable energy resources of hydroelectric power (due to its abundance of rivers) and geothermal reserves!

How do you get (almost) unlimited selection of books at zero cost and with no storage requirement? 📚
.
The answer: use the library!
.
My mom used to take us to the library all the time when I was growing up 🙏🏻 And I am so happy I have found my back after years of being "too busy".
.
Because the library is such a magical place ✨ (If you know, you know.)
.
And to make it even better, there is now an app for all the public libraries in Norway 🤳🏻 Bibliofil makes it easy to keep track of the books your are currently borrowing, check availability and make want to read-lists. You can even order books on behalf of the library - right on your phone! 🤩
.
Pretty great, huh? The app is of course free to download and use, so check it out!
.
.
When was the last time you visited the library? 📖

Repost from Bryant University's club @sustain_us: "Have any of you ever tried growing your own avocados?! 🥑 We’re trying it out! Growing your own food is such a good way to not only avoid the chemicals and pesticides that are commonly used on produce that are sold in supermarkets, but it’s fun and it makes you truly appreciate your food and where it comes from.All you gotta do is clean off an avocado pit, stick about 3 or 4 toothpicks into the pit about halfway, and submerge it in water in a glass cup or bowl so that 1 inch of the pit is submerged 💧Make sure to check on it and add water as needed! (We’ve heard its better to keep the existing water in there and just add to it, instead of completely changing out the water.) Soon, it’ll start to sprout! 🌱Once it’s ready, you can transfer it to a potted planter. This is also something that you can try at school! Thinking of trying it out? Let us know and tag @sustain_us !"

I broke the screen on my phone last week. Thought it was just the protection screen on top, but it turned out to be the actual screen too. The phone is over 3 years old and many would have just gotten a new phone. Especially since it’s ridiculously expensive to repair it. I like my phone and want to keep it as long as possible, so I got the screen fixed. But it really should be cheaper, in order to encourage people to fix rather than buy new products.

Don’t procrastinate. You don’t need to live the 100% sustainable life. Simply, integrate one daily action into your life 🌟

Què passa quan segueixes a @steelandstitch i tens un fill que no para de créixer?
Que les tisores van soles!

What happen when you follow @steelandstitch and your son is growing fast?
Well, you pick your scissors! Now we have one pair of trousers that will live longer and "new" shorts.

Made pickled beetroot for the first time 😄 It was way easier than I thought it would be! Bought the beetroots from the nearest farm. They’re in season right now and super cheap 😉👍🏼

Specjalistką od wyszukiwania ekologicznych i etycznych kosmetyków jest u nas w rodzinie zdecydowanie Basia. Dlatego, jak widzicie, moja kosmetyczka nie jest wolna od plastiku.Tak jak wiele z Was, bardziej ekologiczne zamienniki wprowadzam stopniowo, wykorzystując najpierw to, co mam w łazience :)
Jest tu kilka produktów, które bardzo lubię, a nie znalazłam jeszcze odpowiednika w opakowaniu #zerowaste - jak wspaniały zestaw L'Occitaine, który dostałam od Julii. Jest też lakier do włosów, który ktoś zostawił u nas bardzo dawno temu - więc korzystam aż się nie skończy. Zwłaszcza w te dni, kiedy moje włosy nie współpracują...
.
Mam jednak dwa odkrycia, z których jestem bardzo dumna:
.
1. Szampon w kostce #yorkshiresoapcompany
Jedyny do tej pory, który naprawdę mi przypasował - a przetestowałam już kilka szamponowych kostek.
.
2. Dezodorant różany Scence @www.scence.co.uk. Któregoś dnia wezmę od Ciebie @marysiaszmatula przepis na dezodorant domowej roboty, ale póki to się nie stanie, tym jestem zachwycona!
.
Nie mogę się za to przekonać do pasty do zębów #georganics. Smakuje jak mydło z dodatkiem odrobiny miętowego olejku. @zerowastemummy, spróbuję Twojego przepisu :)

This mess met us on our Sunday walk on beautiful Vardø.... Luckily, we were able to clean everything and prevent it all from blowing into the ocean, just a couple of meters away 💪 And it only took a few minutes! Swipe to see the result 🤩 #pickitup #saveouroceans #5forhvalen @5forhvalen #sjøvask

Slush is a must when bowling 🎳
And as the pro bowler I am, I came prepared with my cup and straw. And guess what? When you ask nicely it's not a problem at all, not even when your cup is 2 dl bigger than the disposal they sell 🙌

I have nothing against larger companies. Sometimes we need a certain amount of resources to implement impactful changes for the best of people and planet 🌍
.
However, we also need the small, local and independent businesses 🌱 Run by a few - or even just a single person - juggling multiple roles and working countless hours to make ends meet.
.
Small, independent businesses often have the advantage of being closer to the consumer, able to change more quickly and free to choose which products to offer. And because every single sale is crucial, they will be highly interested in what their costumers want 🤗
.
In other words: do not be afraid to influence your hairdresser or local clothing store to choose more sustainable products and practises 💚
.
What business owner (aka hardworking badass 👊🏻) do you think deserves a shoutout?

Making the easiest breakfast I know 🙌 Fridge oatmeal porridge makes itself in the fridge over night. Ready to be enjoyed on my way to work with my reusable spoon and napkin on the morning train 😁
I actually remember that I was a little embarrassed the first time I brought my reusable jar, spoon and napkin on the bus.. But I quickly learned to be proud of it! #makereusablegreatagain

Do you use cloth bags?
.
If not, you should! 🤩 They are affordable and easy to bring wherever. Not to mention versatile! Just look at all the ways you can use them:
.
🛒 At the grocery store - when bulk shopping dry goods and unpackaged fruits and vegetables.
.
👩‍🍳 In the kitchen: perfect for storing fruit and vegetables, keeping baked goods fresh and replacing freezer bags.
.
🎒 On the go: for your packed lunch, storing toiletries, as a shoe bag or organizing all the nibs in your handbag/backpack/suitcase (goodbye chaos 👋🏻).

Let’s talk #zerowastebathroom 🛁
We have finally finished our last tube of toothpaste and while we are still squeezing the last few drops out of the tube, I’ve already gone out and bought some bulk toothpaste tablets from @apothecaryyyc .
.
I have been DYING to try out toothpaste tablets for awhile now and am very excited to see how they work. Buying in bulk (and bringing my own container) allowed me to get a small tester to see whether we like them or not before purchasing more. .
Adam is hesitant about the idea but I couldn’t be more excited. Nothing bugs me more than plastic toothpaste tubes so to me, this is the perfect alternative 🌿
.
Have you ever tried toothpaste tablets? Do you have a favourite brand? Let us know in the comments so we can try them out!👇🏼 .
ALSO, keep an eye on our stories as we highlight our journey during #secondhandseptember and share tips/ news surrounding #sustainableliving and the #climatecrisis .
Xoxo, M &A

My boyfriend and I spent the first days of this week in the mountains, just in time for the blueberry season 💙 We brought them with us back to the city, and made a delicious blueberry pie 🥧

Forests house more than 80% of Earth's land animals and plants alongside over 300 million people. 🌳 Animals rely on trees for both food and shelter, as do we. So it's our responsibility to protect them.
