All those peaches and nectarines that’s are just too soft to eat now, peel the skin, take the seeds out, put in a freezer bag, pop in the freezer and use for your smoothies, kids to snacks on or in deserts.

Do you think it’s possible to live life without plastic? Or to at least live with less of it? ⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Why not try? At least. ⁣

Here are 5 EASY ways to get started —⁣

1) Carry reusable shopping bags.⁣

2) Give up bottled water.⁣

3) Carry take-out containers from home when dining out.⁣

4) Buy from bulk bins as much as possible.⁣

5) Chew plastic-free gum.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Wait! What? Plastic gum?🤦‍♀️⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
I'll be the first to admit. This last one is gonna be hard. I'm a big gum chewer! ⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
What are your thoughts on plastic gum? ⁣

We get asked all the time at the markets, "how do you take care of, and clean food wraps?" Our advice for you, is that "less is more" ⠀

By nature, beeswax wraps are antibacterial, so you don't have to scrub them with soapy water each time you use them. Give them a gentle wipe with cool soapy water, or just a quick cool rinse if there are only loose crumbs. Cool water is important as to not melt the wax layer. This way the wrap will serve you for a very long time. ⠀

You know that skinny drawer in your kitchen where you used to keep the cling wrap and tinfoil? Roll up your wraps and put them in there, they will fit perfectly!⠀

When the life of your wrap has come to an end, it makes beautiful gift wrap or compost!⠀

I can not believe it is almost the end of January already. Christmas seems eons away already! I have had some ill health the past couple of months, but I am taking this into my control and trying some new ways to increase my health and wellbeing. Have you ever tried things like bone broth, kefir and apple cider vinegar for gut health? I would love to hear, so please share your experiences. I am using all of these things to try and improve my gut health. It may not work, but at this stage anything is worth a try! 🌻🌻🌻
As part of this, Mr Recycled and I have been discussing the best way forward for our little business this year. We have come to the conclusion that the biggest impact we can have, is in supporting other small businesses like #sustainablehomehub member @threeofakindfurniture to grow, encouraging the retail sector to work towards stocking eco, ethical, handmade and vintage wares; and through our blog – encouraging people like you to live #agentlelife. You will continue to see plenty of tips, inspiration, guides and stories across our blog and social media, which will help you to live a more sustainable life, decorate and design your home, and tread more lightly on the earth. I am seeking house tours, DIY projects, craft projects and stories, so please let me know if you have a story that might be of interest to our community.

So, we have agreed that retail is not the way forward for us. We still have some vintage and some eco products in our little online store, but will not restock. We feel there are plenty of retail stores out there offering these products, and with my experience and connections, we have more impact by supporting them through connecting brands to retailers.
See more via the link in my profile. Exciting to be moving towards our dreams 🌻🌻#sustainablehomehub #shopwithpurpose #realhomesmovement .

Recycling Tip:
If you are using cling wrap, baking paper or aluminium foil, remember to remove the steel cutting strip so that it can be sorted correctly at the recycling facility.
.
This particular one was made of steel since it stuck to a magnet. It should get picked up by the magnets at the recycling plant 🤞
.
Happy sorting 💚

Homemade chicken stock in the Instant Pot couldn’t be easier! One of the things I stumbled upon while doing my pantry challenge this month is the idea of #nowastedfood and getting the full value out of such a valuable resource of ours. ⠀

While we have a lot of work to do on that in our house, I do like the idea and want to try to improve and reduce our waste. I think one of my biggest successes during this challenge was using a whole chicken for several meals and then making this awesome stock from the bare, remaining chicken bones. ⠀

To make a simple stock like this, you will need the following:⠀

Leftover chicken carcass or bones from store bought rotisserie chicken or your own homemade chicken. Because I had made my chicken in the IP, I decided to roast the bones before using them to get this dark, flavorful stock. This isn’t required. ⠀

1 large carrot broke in 3 pieces⠀

2 stalks of celery broke in halves⠀

1/2 an onion with the skin⠀

2 bay leaves⠀

1 tsp of black peppercorns⠀

Pinch of salt⠀

1 tsp of dried thyme⠀

10 cups of water⠀

I placed all of my ingredients into my 8 quart Instant Pot and set on the soup/broth function for 80 minutes. I let this NPR for about 20 while I did some chores but you can QR the pressure. You could also cut down the cook time to 50 minutes, but I figured the extra time wouldn’t hurt and I wasn’t in a rush. ⠀

When complete, pour through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth into your storage containers. You can’t tell, but this is a 8 cup mason jar and I put the remaining two cups in a smaller jar. I plan to use this for our white chicken chili later in the week.

Our carbon footprint. This year the club has been taking steps to reduce waste and rubbish production. Our use of plastic has been minimised with the replacement of paper plates, bowls and straws in the sandbar as well as more organised recycling procedures to ensure all the right things go in the right places. We aim to use all food ordered but when we have a last minute cancellation or a weather hiccup, Ozharvest gets a call.
These are small steps in a larger ongoing effort to ensure that we are an earth friendly club.

"The Great Trash Wave", by the Illustrator Russ White, is a modern critique on how the pollution became a sad part of our oceans. It was based on "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai, circa 1830.

VEGETABLE SCRAP STOCK
🍠🌱🍅🍆🍠🌱🍅🍆
First ever attempt. I have been gathering up our offcuts or even a few things that went past their best in the fridge and sticking them in a container in the freezer. Looking foward to trying it and having the satisfaction of knowing we are squeezing every last drop of goodness from our produce.

And yes, I do use this pot for everything 😆

Reducing waste isn't just about buying food in jam jars 😝 It's something we can think about in every area of our lives. My hot water tank sits on the top of the roof, which is two stories high (there are two flats above me). So when I run the hot tap to get hot water, it takes forever to get hot.💦🚰 Which means heaps of water running down the drain. I couldn't stand for that, of course.😱 I started out using old glass bottles (wine bottles, etc) to collect the water, but there's around 6 litres before it gets hot, which is about 10 wine bottles. Much as I can't bear the waste, I couldn't deal with the visual clutter either - and I needed my kitchen bench space for other things! 😜 So I invested in a couple of stainless steel growlers. (I went with growlers as they have more uses than regular water bottles with screw top lids - for example beer, carbonated drinks.) Along with my regular water bottle (and the kettle, obvs ☕☕☕😋 ) I can collect all the water and make use of it at another time. Zero waste for the win! 🚿

Not only is pollution ugly, it is a health risk for all living things. We damage ourselves when we damage the earth - our only home.

Tip 21 - Try Your Hand at DIY

I have to admit, I love a good DIY project or hack. I have definitely found limitations with time and skills for what I can DIY, but I’ve also found many easy and fast things that I can make myself to help reduce a ton of waste! .
.
I hit a bit of a snag when we started going zero waste because I was trying to do TOO MUCH myself and got a little burned out😳 I realized that it made the most sense to DIY things where I either enjoyed the process or that I couldn’t find package-free (like vinegar), and to just purchase the things that I could find package-free (like kombucha). Reducing waste doesn’t mean doing everything yourself, but even if you think you aren’t great at DIY or feel you don’t have time, there are probably at least a few things you could try that would save a lot of waste and money (hand soap was one of these for us)! What’s your favorite DIY hack to save waste?

***One of my more recent favorites is making my own cashew milk from all bulk ingredients! It makes the best latte ever☕️, is so easy (no straining!), and so much better than anything I could buy in the store. Here’s the approximate recipe—you can adjust it based on our preferences😁
▪️1 cup cashews (soaked and rinsed)
▪️3-4 cups water
▪️0-3 medjool dates, pitted
▪️pinch of salt
▪️2 tbsp vanilla extract
Combine and blend until smooth.

Wrap your head in something pretty ✨🌈 check out the newest addition to the shop— natural dye and ice dye bandanas!
Alternate caption: while looking around my studio for things to place in the frame to stage the flatlay here, I found it funny that my “props” are things that I just have on hand, bringing me joy on a daily basis: essential oils, a plant baby from my pal @shelbyapayne, and books by @rupikaur_ and @goldirocks.co ✨ what items of joy do you keep in your office?

just a few days ago i visited @packagefreeshop because lauren singer (@trashisfortossers) who runs the store inspired me to begin to reduce my trash just about a year ago. i had begun to feel that i have not been as environmentally conscious, and this account is my way to combat that. i hope this account inspires a few others to reduce their trash and their need for single use items.

Staff food looks a little different than the food we serve for our valued guests but taste just as well (most of the time) 😉it's also a chance to use the food we won't serve for you guys #reducewaste #stopmadspild .

QUALITY that lasts.⠀
.⠀
Just as we spoke about Insisting on Quality, we chanced upon this post from @wastefreesara .⠀
Once in a while we find treasures that were forgotten and it's a real joy when they are still in such great condition. Perhaps some minor repair, a little mending, a good nourishing polish, and they're ready to spring back into service! ⠀
.
Do you have such treasures at home? Perhaps not as old as 25 years but still standing tall and ready to be of service. If you do, think twice about getting another one. Use what you have well until it’s truly time to replace. .
Happy Treasure Hunting!

[ #ad #unpaid #unbezahltewerbung #werbungwegenmarkierung ] - Not made by me obviously, but I had to share my latest purchase with you because I really like this brand. I take a lot of time to decide whether I should buy something & I have high demands on a product. These chelsea boots are exactly what I was looking for! They are black, waterproof, beautiful, comfortable, vegan, cruelty free, sustainable & come in zero waste packaging 🖤💚

Ever have trouble keeping cilantro fresh 🌱? Just store it inside a cotton produce bag run under water before adding to your produce bin. Mine stays fresh for over a week this way. I use to wrap it in moistened paper towels wrapped in plastic wrap 👀. As I try to reduce waste (and plastic), I was excited to discover that keeping it in a damp cotton produce bag worked just as well! Yay for reducing plastic and food waste 💪.

#missionmonday Reusing and repurposing puts us more in charge of the waste we create, which makes us much more conscious of having to deal with it. ##shopreuse #reducewaste #wastefreehawaii

Still forgetting to take your reusable bags into the supermarket? Don’t get frustrated. Be reassured that you ARE making a difference.... each plastic bag you don’t use really does make a difference for our environment, the research is conclusive not only on the long term effects on our oceans and landfill but also reducing our personal chemical loads. Plastic is a proven toxin to the human body so avoiding contact with plastic bags and food containers contributes to our own long term health too. That walk back to the car to get those bags is worth it- for you, your family and our environment.

❗️We interrupt this regularly scheduled (RE)solution to announce the Local Pickup has been moved to Wednesday, January 23rd, from 6-8 pm @ Trailside Sports!❗️
.
.
Now, on to our 21st (RE)solution!
.
.
✨ Use your local public library! ✨
.
.
Using your local public library is a fun and easy way to help the environment AND save money (our two favourite things 😉)
.
.
By using the library you can have access to all types of materials for FREE, such as: books, magazines, DVDs, audiobooks, and more!
.
Because these materials are being used and used and used again, this helps save a ton of paper AND plastic cases!
.
Even once the library has withdrawn a book, magazine or, DVD from their collection, most of them will continue the cycle by selling or donating them to patrons and/or donation centres!
.
.
So, let's say it all together....
.
HAVING FUN (AND SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT) ISN'T HARD, WHEN YOU'VE GOT A LIBRARY CARD!

🙌🙌 Who knew this awesome fact?! It’s a common misconception that hand washing wastes less water, but it turns out that using a dishwasher is the greener choice, as newer models waste 3.5x less water!
.
.
Dishwashers are energy efficient too! On the eco-friendly setting, they require close to the same amount of energy that it takes to make the tap hot enough to sanitize dishes. Getting to wash less dishes AND being green is a total win! #LittlePlanetVictories

Cochabamba es una ciudad hermosa! Debemos agradecerle por todo!💕
Pero esta no es la manera...
Se que podemos cambiar este número tan preocupante.💪🏻
Solo llevando una bolsita para el pan de la mañana, para las compras en el mercado y para pedir comida, puede ayudar.✨
Lleva una botella reutilizable y un vaso contigo.🍶
Usa lo que necesitas e intenta consumir menos. 👌🏻
Hay muchas maneras de reducir la basura! 🙌🏻 Que Cocha sea siempre la ciudad jardín! 🌈🏞
