I created this tile to go with my TEDx talk, which is about reducing single-use plastic and waste. (That was what the original meaning was.) But this week, with fires burning across Australia🔥, parts of the US frozen over❄️, parts of the UK totally flooded☔, and all the implications all of these extreme whether events are having for people, animals and the environment, I couldn't help but think about this in a different light. When people's homes are destroyed, habitats wiped out and lives lost, it brings the reality home to me. 'Not convenient' is putting it lightly. I really try to keep this feed positive and practical, but I'm just not feeling it today 😔

That moment when you get that kind of a message....
.
Sometimes all you need to do is just be yourself and use your own reusable straw in a bar....which they like so much that they (just a few days later) make a little change and offer glas straws in their drinks! .
This is how IT works:
don‘t preach-just inspire💚
We say ‚thank you‘

Your child's diapers would literally be here longer than my great-great-grandchildren! They do not degrade well and take about 500 years to decompose.
If one baby uses average 5 diaper changes a day = 1,825 changes per year = 4,563 changes by the time they reach 2½ years old.

About 20 billion disposable diapers are dumped in landfills each year. I'll stop right here as you get the picture.

Nappy Advise:
Use a much better alternative: Bamboo cloth nappies. There are some overly cute selections available to buy. They are washable (thank goodness for washing machines to save you) and Faaaar better option to the plastic, synthetic disposable ones.
Yes, it can be costly outlay at first as you would need to have estimate 20 in the set fora practical full-load 'wash' turnaround. So for your baby shower party, ask nicely to be gifter rather Bamboo-reusable nappies instead of a 'Diaper Cake.' #gogreen

Spotted a guy mowing my neighbours' lawn yesterday and muscled my way over there to request that rather than putting the grass clippings in the bin (the bin! 😭 That's where they were going 😣) he pop them next to my compost bin. Here they are! 😍 (Next to because grass clippings are very high in nitrogen and can get a bit stinky. I'm going to dry them out a little first.) This adds to my collections of shredded paper from an office, coffee grounds from a cafe and spent grain from a homebrewer (who I met online, he was looking for a home for his 'waste') that I'm adding to the compost. If I'm going to turn this lawn into something more alive I need organic matter - lots of it! 😃

Nye plastfrie favorittar kjem til etterkvart 💫 Gjennom sommar, vår og haust greier eg meg fint utan handkrem, men når kulda bit til sprekk hendene opp som ein ørken..🏜 Dermed har det gått nokre plasttuber oppigjennom.. men med denne ombord vert det iallfall litt mindre plast! Og joda, eg har allerede ein plan for kva eg skal bruke boksen til etterpå...☺️ #plasticfreeliving #lesstrash #lessplastic #plastfritt #mindreplast #sirkulærøkonomi #reuse #gjenbruk #burtsbees #lesswaste #kastmindre #mindresøppel

NAME TAGS
Every conference, retreat, convention prepares name tags for participants.
I realized what a waste it is. .

I’ve turned down a few in the past but will commit myself to turning down ALL name tags in the future! And this yellow old name tag of mine will do until it breaks apart! .

I’ll simply ask for only the piece of paper with my name and refuse the name tags. .

I won’t care what people think. ...
.
That perhaps the color of my name tag is not matching with everyone else’s or why I would make a fuss of such a small thing.. .
.
Are you with me on this?

INSTANT COFFEE// To reduce packaging waste from our morning 3-in-1 coffee habit, we have made the switch to instant coffee granules and traditional coffee grounds.

The instant coffee granules cake easily as they absorb moisture from air once opened. To avoid hardened coffee, we usually transfer about a two-week's supply to a smaller airtight container, as this will help to reduce the need to opening the coffee jar lid daily and introduce more air/humidity into it. We do the same with our Milo/Horlick/milk powder at home, buying them in bulk but repack and dispense from a smaller air tight container.

I have found a way to reuse the condensed milk tin, as a cookie cutter. Looking for someone to pick up the large glass jar, as I prefer reuse to recycling, the paper and glass are near worthless on the recycling market. Red wine lees project, anyone?

Are you a “wishcycler”? ♻️ Swipe to see some common items you may think can be recycled, but in fact, cannot. 🚫 When in doubt, throw it out! 🚮 Wishcycling risks contaminating the whole batch of recyclables, resulting in everything going to the landfill 🤦🏼‍♀️ You can also contact your local recycling facility to check what kinds of items are accepted (a quick google search will lead you to their info- mine is very responsive via email). Of course the best thing to do is to refuse using these items when you can 🙅🏼‍♀️ #megandbryn l #rg @cleanseaspilipinas

DIY cashew milk 🍶 That's the coffee situation sorted until Sunday ✨ I love cashew milk above all the other nut milks.🌰 Cashews are high in fat, which makes them delicious, they don't have much fibre so no need to strain, which means it's easier to make and the cashews go further because the resulting milk is thicker. Plus it lasts in the fridge for 7-10 days, way longer than almond milk and oat milk. Extra bonus, cashews are pretty soft so you don't need a fancy blender, either.😃 I soak 1 cup cashews overnight, then blend with 5 cups of water. I do this 1 cup at a time for 30 seconds before adding the next cup, I find it keeps the lumps out. Store in glass and keep in the fridge. It does thicken slightly over time, so I'll often add some more water to the last bit in the bottle.
One more thing about cashews. You may have come across articles telling you cashews are terrible and burning the hands of Indian women workers. Please remember that not all businesses are out to exploit their workers, and there is always a reason things cost less or more. I buy my cashews from @thesourcebulkfoods , and I checked with them (thanks to the lovely team at @thesourcevicpark who are always happy to answer my questions! 🙈). Their cashews are certified organic (and to be certified organic there are a number of criteria to meet beyond not spraying pesticides), they are processed by a company called OLAM who source nuts in Vietnam, have HACCP certified factories 🏭 and are fully mechanised.

It can be tricky - and is definitely time-consuming - to find out info about where exactly our food comes from and how it gets to us, but the more we know, the easier it is to make good choices. Oh and for any nit-pickers out there, no cashews are not the absolutely most local choice to me. Guess I won't win the zero waste perfection 🏆award this morning 😏

Waste is a concept that came into effect quite recently. In the years preceding century, the term was quite unheard of. Trash. Garbage. They just didn’t exist. Man back then led a very cyclical lifestyle in which every last bit was used up. Times have changed and now, we lead a lifestyle in which NINETY NINE PER CENT of the stuff we buy is trashed within six months. Every year we dump a massive 2.12 billion tons of waste. If all this waste was put on trucks they would go around the world 24 times. We produce around 0.74 kilograms of waste per person every single day. We’re running out of places to dispose of this garbage. Ever wondered where the world’s largest landfill is? The Pacific Ocean.
Start by just noticing how much you throw away every day. Make an effort to buy products that
leave less waste behind, and recycle if possible. It is our compulsive consumption that brought us to this situation and if we don’t act soon, it will consume us.

Current garage status 😬 If I didn't have access to great bulk store options I'd definitely think about setting up a co-op (basically, a buying group). Luckily I don't need to for food, but I do organise a bulk toilet paper delivery every few months.🚽 The bulk order is 10 cases 🙈 It's cheaper than buying single boxes ($9 cheaper for a box of 48 rolls), there's only 1 van 🚐 doing 1 drop-off (rather than 10 individual ones) but even better, it's a great excuse to catch up with the neighbours and friends I haven't seen for a while.😊🏘️ Building and strengthening communities is such an important part of sustainability and it doesn't get talked about often enough. Sharing knowledge, skills, stuff, doing things with like-minded people, helping others out, feeling connected... The way to a more fulfilling life and a more sustainable planet 🌏 Yes, I really think toilet paper can be a part of that 😜

✨Meet the Maker series!✨ Meet Maggie— When she’s not #sockin she likes to go coffeeshop-hoppin' and work on illustration projects. She loves writing letters to friends near and far, laying beneath trees in the grass, meeting strangers on the bus, reading up on holistic health, and hiking around secluded trails. Swing dancing with family and playing piano are also two great loves of hers! Maggie gets to jam in a rock ‘n soul band with some talented folks too, which has been a blast. 💛 link in our bio to our sock team!

HOMEMADE TONER with diluted ACV// My complexion is not that fantastic, so I cannot really tell if branded skincare products and diy versions made any improvement/difference to my skin. Which I think is a perfect excuse to go for the cheaper homemade versions, using ingredients that I can eat/drink!
•Lazy version: add one part ACV to three parts water
•Pamper-myself version: replace water with freshly brewed green tea, need to store this version of toner in fridge.

飲みかけですみません😅週末母と一緒にランチしたのですが、こちらのレストランでもストローなしに快く対応してくださいました💕母が頼んだジュースは濃い目で氷も入ってて飲みにくそうだったので、私のガラスストローを貸してあげたら、とーっても気に入ってくれました😊💕

Had lunch with mom on the weekend and we both said no straw please. The server just said “okay!” and there was no fuss! The juice mom ordered was a bit thick and with ice cubes in it, which made it hard to drink. I let mom use my glass straw and she loved it 😊💕

I love chickpeas but geez they take a long time to cook! 🙄(About 1.5 - 2 hours, once soaked.) Before you say it, yes I know a pressure cooker would speed it up and I've also been told they cook well in a slow cooker, but I don't have either or these things, nor space for them, and I can't justify buying something I'd only use a few times a year. Now I've got solar panels it makes sense to cook in the middle of the day, except that is when I least want to cook as it heats the house up 🏡🥵 . So I set up my portable stovetop outside and these guys bubbled away making chickpea smells without steaming out the house ((or stinking it out, either). In my old place we had common electricity outside, and it wasn't fair to do the cooking with that so I never had this opportunity. I always cook a big batch of chickpeas too, and freeze the excess in jars so I have them to hand when needed❄️. I recently discovered that black-eye peas/beans taste really similar to chickpeas and only take 20 minutes to cook once soaked so these are an easier option if you can't be bothered with chickpeas...
