Cookies! 🍪🍪🍪 These little nuggets are one of my go-to recipes, made of...chickpeas! 😜 240g cooked chickpeas (the equivalent of a tin), 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup rice malt syrup/honey (probably a bit less if you use maple syrup as it is runnier than the others) and a couple of pinches of salt. Blend to combine then stir through 75g chopped chocolate. Roll into balls (I like to keep mine tiny so I don't feel so guilty when I eat 6 at once 🙊) and bake on a medium heat for 10-15 minutes until beginning to turn golden. You can use almond butter instead of peanut butter, and I'm sure other nut butters would work too but those are my faves. Yum! 😋

Every minute, nearly a million plastic beverage bottles are purchased around the world. Most of these bottles end up in landfill or in the oceans. It’s not enough to clean up and boost recycling. We all need to do whatever we can to help turn off the plastic tap. Avoid. Intercept. Redesign.

This is such a heartbreaking and horrible image to see of a hedgehog which died after it got stuck inside a disposable cup 😭💔 However, it's important that people realise the consequences of their actions! . . Everyday wildlife all over the world is dying because of litter and plastic pollution. It's such a huge issue and yet it's just ONE of the reasons why we need to do something about it 🙅 This is NOT OK! . . Hedgehogs and other small mammals are particularly at risk of being affected by litter because of their size. Hedgehog numbers have already significantly declined in recent years, so we need to make sure that plastic pollution isn't contributing to this decline! We should be giving wildlife every chance of survival, not killing them with thoughtless actions! 🙈 . . It can be easy to feel helpless in situations like this but every person has their role to play in fighting against plastic pollution >> Get involved in litter picks and beach cleans, reduce your own plastic consumption, educate others about the impacts of dropping litter and plastic pollution. We can all make a difference! 💪🏼Do it for wildlife, Do it for yourself, Do it for David! 👊 . #doitfordavid #saveourwildlife #plasticpollution #plasticnotfantastic #dontbeatosser #waronplastic #dontdroplitter #needforchange #bethechange #waronwaste #cleanupyouract

We dropped into the allotment this afternoon to grab some kale for the bunnies. While there, we also checked the exciting progress of our sweetcorns, spotted stripey tomatoes developing, harvested and immediately ate some raspberries (they were covered in hungry shield beetles, one of whom befriended Master R) and did a quick wheelbarrow of weeding. The strimmer broke in June, so it's all gone a bit wild this summer. Typically, I have shredded the receipt so I can't return it. I optimistically took it apart, thinking if it was a loose wire I could put it right. It wasn't a loose wire, and I haven't managed to get if back together ... yet. 🙄 #allotmentlife #harvesttime #growyourown #zerofoodmiles #goplasticfree

Soap bars - One very pleasant side effect of going plastic free is falling in love with bar soaps and there are many wonderful ones out there to fall for. My boyfriend and I have now totally swapped over to using soap and shampoo bars and so far they have been good to my skin and hair, really fun to use and they have given me a cleaner conscience. They also make your bathroom smell great! What is your favourite bar soap? . . Since my boyfriend stole my soap and shampoo bars, I decided to buy him some of his own from a new natural and plastic free brand @conchuslife. I also got a shampoo bar and a face wash bar for myself to try. The bars smell lovely and, as you can see in the photo, they are also very generous in size. Looking forward to trying them out!

It just takes small little changes every day in our choices to make a difference. Going Green is not an overnight fix. Its recognising that we can go back to living a far simpler, environmentally friendly, life. And once you start, it becomes so addictive. I am saving so much money by making or recycling and not purchasing new things. I am losing weight by walking everywhere. I am proud of all the things I am learning to make. And I feel powerful to know I dont need to rely on retailer's anymore.

Two items purchased @cvspharmacy, a receipt 50 inches long! That's over four feet long because of coupons. #cvs is one of the only places I have found that offers emailed receipts, but how many people actually sign up for that? You cannot even recycle glossy receipts due to the BPA in them, let alone compost then.

The opening of the new, bigger @locavore_cic shop in Glasgow has been a heaven sent! It's a zero-waste paradise and while it's not a dedicated plastic-free shop per se, the selection of zero waste products is growing all the time. There was always organic local veg and fruit on offer, which is mostly sold loose, and the fresh artisan bread from local bakeries. Now there is also a bulk-section for grains, herbs, spices, pasta and dried fruit, a fill-your-own-bottle milk station (only cow's milk though), a peanut butter machine, refill stations for oil and vinegar and a section where you can refill liquid cleaning products and toiletries - AND it's on my way home from work 😍 I love how it's getting easier to shop plastic free in Glasgow!

Hubs and I went on a weekend getaway and these are the souvenirs we came back with.... Cotton bags for produce, beeswax wraps to replace the cling wrap we're running out of, and macadamia nuts for homemade nut milk, all from the a cute little organic store we found! I'm thankful to have a partner who leads in reducing our waste.

Plastic is not a breakfast item 😥 My friend Amy recently went on a road trip to the northern part of Western Australia 🌏🐄 and snapped this sad sight. We often hear talk about how plastic is an oceans issue 🌊 and how it affects marine life 🐳🐠🐋 (and it is and it does) but it doesn't *just* affect the ocean.❎ Not living near the ocean doesn't mean plastic doesn't still have an impact and isn't still harming animals and wildlife. I don't like to share problems, I think it is much more useful to share solutions. The thing about the plastic problem is it needs all of us to do our part.✅ Wherever we live, and however much or however little we can do, let's do SOMETHING. Let's make scenes like this a thing of the past, not an inevitability of the future 😊👊

What are we feeding our world? The spotlight is shining bright on plastic pollution right now, and for good reason. If we don't curb our overconsumption, switch to more environmentally friendly alternatives of plastic and dispose of our waste mindfully, this could become our reality.

The biscuit jar is back! After some recent on-call shifts fuelled by many biscuits, I’ve been really missing biscuits at home. We can never find any without plastic so we usually go without, but my husband baked these up this weekend whilst going nocturnal for some night shifts and I’m so happy to have biscuits again! It’s obviously not as easy as just going to the shops but it’s also a great way to save money when trying to swap to a more zerowaste lifestyle. Do you make your own baked goods to avoid buying ones wrapped in plastic? • #zerowaste #zerowastelondon #zerowasteuk #goplasticfree #refusesingleuse #choosetorefuse #reducewhatyouproduce #refusesingleuseplastics #refusereducereuserecycle #unpckaged #homemade

My plastic free swap this week is from @lush which should have a few things that'll make for an easy zero waste transition. I used up the last of my shampoo and conditioner so have moved on the these bars. One shampoo bar (€8.95) lasts up to about 70 washes, so I'm told. I also bought a handy storage tin (€3.50), which will be great for travelling - plus no more 100ml liquid limit at the airport 👌

Did you know every minute, at least one garbage truck full of plastic waste is dumped into our oceans!? If this isnt shocking enough, at the rate we are going the amount of marine plastic is set to increase 10x by the year 2020!!😥 Choose to cut down or eliminate plastic from your lifestyle. This shouldnt be up for debate anymore. Our planet is dying and we need to do something about it. Plastic is found even in the most remote places on earth.

The kids are enjoying the clear, beautiful, clean sea. Let's keep it that way. We're currently in a country where the only access to safe drinking water is via #plasticbottles - Reminding me that the journey to be #plasticfree is greater and longer in some countries than for others. In the UK #plastic mostly serves our convenience (aside from the medical industry), so there is no excuse for the vague and tardy timelines of our Government of "action on 'unavoidable waste' by 2042". The EU are now setting earlier dates, such as 55% of all plastic to be recycled by 2030, which still doesn't seem enough but with BREXIT coming - we will have no legal obligation to keep up... I really think as consumers and citizens we need to vote with our buying purchases and lobby with our pens - we have more power than we know.

Time to grab your favourite beverage guilt and plastic free♻️ For optimistic drinkers and half full thinkers💜 . . Last week I celebrated my birthday (along with the lady behind @onelesseco ) and in keeping up with going plastic free I decided to treat myself with a reusable glass coffee cup from @onelesseco . Drinking from a take away cup from Tim’s or Starbucks takes a minute BUT these cups last forever in our landfills as they aren’t recyclable because of their plastic inside lining. These cups eventually land in our waters. Sol Cups are designed in Australia and made from readily available materials (eg sand). They can be recycled endlessly without loss to quality or purity and are 100% chemical free and microwave and dishwasher safe!! Go plastic free and purchase one of these adorable travel mugs in 8,12 or 16 oz ☕️ . . . . . . . . #goplasticfree #wasteoneless #planetorplastic #environmentallyfriendly #reduceplasticuse #reducewaste #plasticfreeliving #plasticsucks #coffeecup #reusablecup #takeaway #solcups #chemicalfree #zerowaste #gogreen #lifestylechange #itonlytakesaminute #takecareofourplanet #greenlife #coffeetime #littlechangesbigresults #butfirstcoffee #coffeeislife #followyourheart #togocup #reuseable #waronwaste #healthyliving #ethical

#PlasticFree starter pack ♻ Read on if you want my personal story 😊 My new year's resolution for 2017 was to limit my single use plastic. I figured since I'm going into conservation, I really had to start practicing what I was preaching. I started small, switched to reusable bags and menstrual products. I had already used a reusable water bottle and recycled, so what I thought would be a struggle wasn't. As the months went on, I got reusable produce bags and reusable straws (stainless steel). Am I perfect with saying no to single use plastic? No, sometimes I forget my tervis cup, or all my produce bags are dirty. No one is perfect, but I know that I've made a change in these small lifestyle changes. And now it's so much easier to be mindful. Because that's what being plastic free does, it makes you mindful of your effect on not only your environment, but everything. It makes you more accountable and let's you see the effect you can have on your surroundings, both social and environmental 😊 If anyone would like to help join me on my journey, pictured are some simple products to help: ▪Reusable Water Bottle (@nalgene) ▪Reusable Shopping Bags ▪Reusable/Washable Menstrual Pads (@floraandfaunaau or Amazon) ▪Stainless Steel Straws (@floraandfaunaau or @ever.eco) ▪Reusable Coffee Cup (@tervis or @keepcup) ▪Reusable Produce Bags (@floraandfaunaau or Amazon) And know that you don't have to buy brand name items to go plastic free. I save glass bottles from my orange juices to put Quinoa and sauces in. I hope this helps someone else decide to make a difference 💙 ▪ ▪ ▪ #zerowasteliving #zerowaste #zerowastelife #zerowastetips #zerowastelifestyle #PlasticFreeJuly #plasticfreelife #plasticfreeoceans #gogreen #recycle #reuse #refusethestraw #saynotosingleuseplastic #reducereuserecycle #reduceplastic #greenliving #mindful #mindfulliving #greentips #tipsandtricks #tipsforlife #goplasticfree #oceansoul #saveouroceans #saveourseas #savetheplanet #savethefishies #rtfambassador

Buying veggies and fruits in bulk or package free saves not only our planet from unnecessary and toxic plastic waste which adds to the global warming, poisoning our land, rivers and oceans, destroying marine life and sea based habitat, polluting forests and comes back to our plate with new "organic" fruits and veggies raised on the land packed with toxins we threw in it... It also builds beautiful routine. I like to go to the grocery shop early morning just after it's opened. It's peaceful time and i can enjoy fresh stuff. It's also nice opportunity to interact with sales and cashiers, chance to inspire them or give some information about plastic. And even it seems in vain and people don't care, they will remember. And maybe think. This is vital on the way of sustainability, to start thinking. Today i tried to avoid plastic packed stuff, with fruits and veggies i am reusing my old plastic bags (until i get my curtain cut 😂😂) All supermarkets in Russia are bulk type for fruits, veggies and some are selling legumes, nuts, tea, coffee etc. It always was and it's a good thing, we can buy as much as we need, avoid food waste, choose what we like and pay less. I was very happy to find buckwheat in cartboard! It is really a miracle, for loose stuff like grains are almost always packed in plastic here except only big supermarkets like Auchan. Unfortunately i couldn't buy pasta in this shop without plastic "window" 😂 though i could buy in bulk yesterday if i wouldn't forget 😐 This is why better planning is important. Other things are: non refined Sunflower oil, black grapes, apricots and veggies - everything package free. Do you also enjoy morning Saturday shopping? #plasticfreeaugust #plasticfreeoceans #plasticfreeworld #plasticfreeproduce #plasticfreegrocery #plasticfreeforthesea #plasticfreesaturday #plasticfreelife #plasticfreechallenge #plasticfreefoodie #plasticfree2018 #plasticfreeparent #plasticfreepackaging #plasticfreemovement #plasticfreeshopping #plasticfreerussia #goplasticfree #wastezero #reducewasteuk #reducewasteinourlandfills #reducewasteweek #reducewasteliving #reducewaste♻️ #earthisourhome #bringstarsbacktosky #0waste

Anyone have any good tips about buying cards without plastic? Today I bought my Grandma a birthday card and it came it plastic :( The ones from my pack of birthday card didn’t seem quite special enough and I can never find individual cards without plastic. Anyone know of a shop (I’ll even take Etsy shops) that sell lovely cards without plastic? I love these thank you cards I have in bulk and packaged only in card but it seems like they’re a rare find, and the birthday card equivalents aren’t as nice. I would love to hear about where you can get cards without the packaging! #zerowaste #zerowastelondon #zerowasteuk #zerowastelife #choosetorefuse #goplasticfree #reducewhatyouproduce #refusesingleuseplastics #refusereducereuserecycle

Having a bit of a tidy up of the dreaded kitchen drawer today. Does anyone else have one of those drawers that is just an ‘everything’ drawer? Anyway, so far I’ve come across 5 Mickey straws. We’re definitely doing our bit helping Disney go plastic straw free! 😁💕 . . . . . . . . #mickeystraws #mickeymouse #straws #plasticfree #saveouroceans #goplasticfree #disneypledge #noplastic #disneyfan #disneyhome #disneylife #disneyfamily #disneystyle #collecttherainbow #purpleismyfavourite

Anyone else here a fan of coconut and coconut oil? 🥥 I love using coconut oil for my skin in the form of a sugar scrub - it smells gorgeous, nourishes my skin and leaves it really soft without being sticky. . . In my giveaway DIY kit you will get a jar of this @drbronnersuk Organic Virgin Coconut oil, which can be used for the body scrub recipe, but also to nourish your hair and for cooking and baking (which I am yet to try)! This oil is fair trade and certified organic by the @soilassociation. Three days left to enter my Matcha Sugar Scrub DIY kit giveaway, so go enter while you can 😘

Soooo... I love shark week! 🌊 I know there’s a lot of controversy about how it portrays sharks as terrifying monsters. And I agree - we gotta stop that shiz. BUT... I also don’t think that sharks have to be the big friendly giants of the sea either. It’s normal to be freaked out by that many teeth, and they can get pretty big. I’m terrified of sharks, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love SCUBA diving with them and appreciating them in the wild. To me, part of the reason they’re so majestic is because they are so dangerous!

🇬🇧 English text below 💕 Werbung | wegen Markenverlinkung | selbstgekauft Letzten Monat habe ich bei der Müllchallenge teilgenommen und meinen Müllverbrauch besonders beobachtet. Viele Dinge klappen bei mir schon richtig gut - beispielsweise Lebensmittel plastikfrei zu kaufen (abgesehen von veganem Grillgut). Der meiste Müll entsteht bei mir aber wirklich beim Abschminken sowie Schminken. Mindestens 3 Wattepads landeten täglich im Müll und auch Q-Tips. Dem Problem möchte ich aber ab jetzt entgegenwirken. Deshalb strickte ich mir Abschminkpads (häkeln kann ich leider nicht 😃) und kaufte mir nachhaltigere Wattestäbchen. (Welche ich natürlich nur zum Abschminken benutze und mir NIEMALS ins Ohr stecken würde 😅😬). Wenn mein Make-Up Entferner aufgebraucht ist, werde ich dann das Abschminken mit Kokosöl probieren. Oder hat jemand von Euch bessere Alternativen? 😊 ___________________________ Last month I took part in the garbage challenge and especially observed my garbage consumption. Many things work really well for me - for example to buy plastic-free food (apart from vegan grill food). But most of my garbage really comes from removing make-up and make-up. At least 3 cotton pads landed daily in the garbage and also Q-tips. From now on, however, I would like to counteract this problem. That's why I knitted make-up remover pads (I can't crochet 😃) and bought more sustainable cotton swabs. (Which I of course only use to remove make-up and would NEVER put in my ear 😅😬). When my make-up remover is used up, I will try removing it with coconut oil. Or do any of you have better alternatives? 😊

A couple more packets of bubble envelopes and I'll go plastic free! 💪 Since everything I sell isn't really fragile, it doesn't make sense to add more plastic waste to this planet! I'll be replacing all my packaging with recyclable materials as soon as I finish what I have . . . . #timenomads #etsysellerlife #etsypagan #etsysellersofig #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreelife #plasticfreeocean #goplasticfree #noplasticplease #noplastics #noplasticwaste #indiebusiness #indiebusinessowner #plasticfreeshopping #plasticfreeshop #etsyshopowner #etsylife #creativebusinessowner #creativebusinesses #plasticban #plasticbanned #nomoreplastic

... in this county there is no other chance to drink water except from plastic bottles. So we picked up some Trash and plastic from the beach. We collected the trash only for 5 min and we could do that for hours. There is so much trash and it makes me angry. People are so ignorant. So if you are at the Beach, pick up a bit plastic (especially microplastic, the small pieces) and save the Ocean ! #planetearthfirst #goplasticfree #noplastic #zerowaste #gogreen #boycottplastic #saynotostraws #sustainableliving #yourplasticsucks #plasticsucks #fortheocean #sustainablity #supportlocalfood #jutestattplastik #savetheplanet #breakfreefromplastic #lessplastic #albaniacleanup #oceancleanup #albania #visitalbania

Today I joined the Boskalis Beach Cleanup Tour with my sister. It was the Maasvlakte etappe. My first impression of the beach was that it looked fairly clean, but the more we walked the more trash we saw. Pieces of fishnets, bottle caps, beer caps, pieces of glass and plastic, bandaids and a lot of sigaret buds. I think its good to see the human carbon footprint with your own eyes. So who will join us next year? #boskalisbeachcleanuptour #beachcleanup #goplasticfree #noplanetB #wecycle #cleanupyourowntrash #nosingleuseplastic
