I must say I really do love my books, these are four books I'm reading about plastic, climate change and the environment. 🌿 As an environmental science student I am constantly looking at why changes in our environment occur, whilst also looking at the effects humans have on our planet. From plastic pollution in our oceans to insecticides killing off bees. 🌊 If you have a passion for the environment, please have a read of books, articles, studies and reports. It's always great to understand why things are happening and advancements that may help solve some of these problems.🌍 #read #environment #pollution #science #learning

Estos días hemos estado en @rototomsunsplash , festival de Reggae más importante de Europa. Se trata de un festival, en el que además de la música, se da visibilidad a diferentes temas, entre ellos, el medio ambiente. Durante todo el festival, se utilizan vasos reutilizables, máquinas expendedoras de agua, platos y cubiertos biodegradables y compostables, contenedores y papeleras clasificadas por todas partes...además de ofrecer charlas-debate relacionadas con el medio ambiente. Como siempre, hemos disfrutado muchísimo!! #rototomsunsplash #noplastic #breakfreefromplastic #planetorplastic #plasticfreeoceans #compostable #noalplastico #nomasplastico #nomoreplastic #savetheocean #zerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #ceroresiduos #lowwaste #lesswaste #dinoalplastico #medioambiente #cuidarelplaneta #festival #festivalreggae #reggae

How can we call ourselves outdoor lover/enthusiast/athlete if we don't also preserve nature while carrying out our activity in it - yes, even if the trash is not ours. Whether it's the urban park nearby our house, or the summit of Mount Everest, if we love being outdoors, we must love taking care of it too. How can we call ourselves outdoor enthusiasts if we leave nature poisoned? What do we love about the outdoors then? With @inspire.ecoparticipation we strive everyday to establish a new philosophy by which a reusable garbage bag is part of the gear of every outdoor activity and picking up trash is part of that activity. Let's #bereadytoclean and preserve that same environment where we have such incredible times and where we carry out the most amazing adventure of all: life. 🌍

Credit to @free_from_plastic : I’d love to see this as a standard in all supermarkets. In fact about 95% of the product range (depending on supermarket) contains or is wrapped in plastic. - Trying to live free from plastic brings some sacrifices and may feel a bit uncomfortable especially when it comes to making decision what to buy and what not to buy due to its packaging. But Hey! 🤗 We can see some positive results happening in the world. True, it takes time! But moves that have started to eliminate, find alternatives and ban plastic are very promising. I encourage you to keep pushing for plastic bans and continuing the great job you are doing 🌱🌿🙏🏼☀️ - Do you think that vegans have it easier when it comes to avoiding plastic? 🍆🍓🍇🥑 - Via @conscious_cooking #planetorplastic #plasticfree #reuse #reduce #recycle #plasticpollution #zerowaste #noplastic #nowaste #lessplastic #plasticwaste #plasticfree #passonplastic #nomoreplastic #ecology #eco #ecofriendly #environment #proudlyeco #vegan #veganlife #veganshopping

I do get annoyed when people close to me don't take sustainability seriously, not even easy actions like refusing a straw or plastic bag (especially when I'm there already saying "tak nak straw" or "tak nak plastic"). But. I try to remember that behaviour is not changed overnight. Keep doing your best and maybe someone will be inspired by your actions (maybe not, but that's OK too).

This is also Costa Rica! If you believe it or not. This is just one of the locations the team of @algoporlatierra helped to clean from all the trash others mindlessly and without care for nature left behind. In San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, the work is endless and more helping hands are needed.

Buying spices in bulk is a great way to reduce plastic packaging 🌱 👉 So what is bulk food? • It means that shops store food in large bins/canisters and you can bring your own containers or bags to buy small quantities. • This reduces the amount of single use plastic since you can reuse your own containers. 👉 How to buy spices in bulk? • Grab an empty spice container and take it to the shop. • Check the instructions in the shop or ask staff to find out how they weigh their spices. 👉 Tip for Darwin peeps I found these spices at a local gym today (@wickednrgsupps), but I know that Greenies in Rapid Creek and Love Thy Juice in the Smith Street Mall sell them as well. 🌱Happy spice shopping 😀 @wickednrgsupps #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastehome #goingzerowaste #lowwaste #wastewise #nomoreplastic #keeptheoceanclean #keeptheplanetclean #plasticfreeoceans #reducewaste #waronwaste #waronwasteau #sustainableliving #lessplastic #lesswaste #ditchplastic #sustainableliving #enironmentallyfriendly #reducelandfill #ditchsingleuseplastic #breakfreefromplastic #choosetorefuse #planetorplastic #bulkbuy #buybulk

C O T T O N B U D S Probably not a necesity in most homes after we all found out that using them in ours ears is actually bad 🤭 however I still find uses for them, be it fixing up my failed winged eye liner, applying cream to a wound, and yes sometimes still using them in my ears 🙃 so for those of you like me who couldn’t quite give them the flick, bamboo cotton buds are a great sustainable alternative to plastic cotton buds! They are compostable & 100% biodegradable! These cotton buds have a bamboo stick and come packaged in a recycled paper box. Even better than paper q tips, bamboo is a naturally organic, water efficient crop that is 30% more effective at absorbing carbon than trees! #gobamboo #cottonbuds #sustainableliving

Made my first toothpaste. 😀 Just coconut oil, baking soda and xylitol. And a bit of eucalyptus oil because I had no peppermint at home. It’s a bit salty tasting so next time I might add a bit more xylitol. I just started using it and I’m really curious if my dentist will see any difference at my next check up. * There are many people concerned that baking soda is too abrasive for teeth. Even dentists don’t agree on it. I guess it is like many things. For some people they work and for some they don’t. I, for myself decided to give it a try...🌼 * * * #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastehome #sustainableliving #minimalwaste #sustainable #ourplanetourhome #zerowastecollective #zerowastecommunity #nosingleuse #sustainableshoppingtips #ecowarrior #greenliving #planetorplastic #savetheearth #simplyliving #lowimpactmovement #plasticfree #nachhaltig #nachhaltigkeit #goingzerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #zerowasteoberasbach #zerowastelife #diy #toothpaste

If you have your health, you have it all. It takes daily practice and ongoing consciousness. That’s all. No mystery, codes to break or riddles to solve. Incorporating exercise into your daily routine is one way to keep the pounds off and to discover a less-aggrieved you. Make well-being your way of life, not just something you have to force yourself to do as a result of over-indulgence or guilt 😘 #planetorplastic

This post is first, a call to help. People across Kerala and Coorg are stuck in some of the worst floods of recent times, stuck in houses and shelters without food or water, stuck waiting to be rescued. Relief camps have been flooded, Kochi airport is under water, trains have been cancelled. Loved ones have been lost, homes have been destroyed, agricultural land has been washed away and livelihoods are at stake. As the rains abate and people try to rebuild their lives, you and I can help in small ways. Go to @amazondotin and contribute products of use to 3 organisations - including @goonj - helping with relief efforts or find a collection centre near you (especially in Bangalore). Kerala and Karnataka may feel far from where we are, but this is still our land, our people, our country... and who knows who’s turn it’ll be tomorrow? . . This post is then, a call to think. For those of us who are unaffected by the calamity, those of us having a usual Sunday morning... A call to STOP blaming nature for this calamity. A call to stop abusing the rains for what’s happening. A call to take a step back and think about how this calamity is not brought about by nature but man. Reports are already showing that much of the floods are because of the incessant damming of the rivers, because of the incessant construction and destruction along the river beds, because of everything we’re doing in the name of development. . . I know many of us are not high level decision makers. But we make our individual choices and those matter. Choices like bringing more humans on this overpopulated earth; consuming far more resources than we need; contributing to the toxic waste that is destroying our rivers; not raising our voices when we must because it doesn’t directly affect us; not reading enough to know what is really going on. We are all equally part of the problem and our individual choices matter. . . I’m reflecting on mine today, as I look at terrifying images of the destruction in Kerala and Coorg... and you? . . (Update: Maybe not Paytm money to CM’s flood relief fund; he’s apparently using it for private chopper rides. Source: Times of India) . . #keralafloods #keralafloodrelief

☘I have used soapberries to now clean seven loads of washing. From wee soaked undies, socks and pants (toilet training miss 2yr old), to washing our clothes and towels. Amazing!! . The loads of washing were clean and smelt lovely. After 4 loads of washing I took the 5 soap berries from the small pouch and put them in our compost. There was hardly anything left!! Hubby was very impressed with how the berries have been cleaning and that there is no packing to put in the bin!! . I have sensitive skin and haven't found an issue with the change of detergent. I was using a sensitive detergent before aswell. . Seriously, I cannot rave enough about these soap berries!! Thankyou @wastenotcollective for the extra recipes for the soapberries!

_Habits_ Patriotism has to be there in everybody. Yesterday, it was as usual, the wonderful beating retreat ceremony with people showing all the patriotism they have got. But these people always fail to show little responsibility towards nation. They always fail to give respect to the soldiers. Because some of our own people are victims of bad habits and sick mentality of littering places wherever they go. Duty of soldier is to protect the country from extraterrestrial enemies but we are the real enemies of our own country. We make our soldiers clean the garbage we leave behind while leaving this venue. It is seriously sick to leave the plastic bottles, wrappers behind even when garbage bins are being provided. We are enemies of our own planet. We created the plastic and we are spreading it throughout the world. We have to change ourselves or else someday nature will take revenge. Be responsible fellas. . .

Credit to @free_from_plastic : I’m sure you already came across to a plastic from biodegradable category. General perception is that biodegradable plastics will degrade if left in nature or ideally in regular compost you have in your household. So it will not harm any living creature or leave toxic residues in the soil. - PLA, that is exactly a type of plastic you would be looking for if you want to exploit all the benefits of plastic when leaving no environmental impact as it can be composted under household conditions or will break down naturally after short time in nature. In fact, this is pretty rare and most PLAs will not break down as easily as you may think. Most PLAs will only break down in industrial composting facilities under high temperatures. - Several requirements and concerns to successfully decompose biodegradable plastic that make it inefficient to use PLAs at this time. • Collection and sortation comes first. They should not be mixed with other plastics or left in nature. • Most of us don’t have proper information how to recognise biodegradable plastics. • Lack of composting facilities. In US there is 200 industrial composting facilities and 50 mil tons of organic waste. Moreover, some of them will not even accept PLAs due to contamination risk. - Avoiding plastic still remains the best solution. Even if there is plastic that degrades naturally in reasonable time period it still needs to be handled as a waste and any waste handling requires resources. - Do you know where to trash biodegradable plastic to ensure is gets properly decomposed? 🌿 - Original picture by Alexandre Sattler #planetorplastic #plasticfree #reuse #reduce #recycle #plasticpollution #zerowaste #noplastic #nowaste #lessplastic #plasticwaste #plasticfree #passonplastic #nomoreplastic #ecology #eco #ecofriendly #environment #proudlyeco #jakarta #indonesia

Day 1 #noplasticstraws 0-1 coffee stand. I brought my straws, made sure to say no straw, got a plastic straw 😕 It is so routine for cold drinks to come with a straw. Not the baristas fault, but I now know to try holding my metal straw up as a reminder. #alwayslearning ☀️ Afternoon stop = milkshake 1-1 🤘🏼 Their straws are wrapped in paper so I could hand it back and say no thank you I have a #reusablestraw ✨ Feeling much better about my goal of going #strawfree 💕

So it's a day of recognition for our hard working #bees. Yeah!🎉 But recognition goes where? Without action the circumstances remain the same. We can't keep approving new #pesticides and chemicals that are banned around the world and expect the insect world to survive. The #insect world is disappearing. Think about that because at least 75% of life on this planet are insects! The evidence is out there... It has been for a long time and only grows stronger. #Diversity and #habitat availability need stronger advocacy not a holiday. Steps to help: Plant Plant organic Plant diversly If you cant plant from seed ask what is on my plants? At the nursery Recycle Use less Dont use pesticides or weedkillers! Ask your family do do the same Ask yourself do we really need aisles and aisles of 'lawn' treatments? Where does all that chemical end up? In your water that ypu drink, on the grass that the kids play on, in the garden that we eat from? It doesn't disappear. Do the bugs of our planet not serve a purpose? #Genesis 1:2 "So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good."

One of my favorite things. Keep in your vehicle or bag, bring to restaurants for leftovers or takeout, to food trucks to plop your food right in, to the deli, to the farmers market, even the store. No need for single use plastic, styrofoam, or even cardboard. I will note, reuse what you've got- zerowaste isn't about consumerism/buying new (unless necessary). If you already have plastic tupperware and ziplock bags, wash and reuse until broken - the plastic is already in the world, use it up, wear it out! Then replace with non plastic ❤. #byocontainer #nostyrofoam #noplastic #wsstefreetakeout #useitup #wearitout #justwashit #nomoresingleuseplastic #lovealaska #aspiretozerowaste #passonplastic #planetorplastic #zerowastefairbanks #zerowastealaska #plasticfree

When I told the staff members working there that there should be a recycle bin next to the #garbage (and, btw, a compost bin too- since all of this #paper towel should be #composted and there should really be zero waste here), they were like “yeah, no doubt” and looked at each other in a look which I took to mean “okay crazy, I’m not telling my manager your suggestion.” 🤦🏻‍♀️☔️ Despite their lack of enthusiasm, I encourage everyone to keep trying to voice their opinions because you never know what your words and actions can lead to — I’m hopeful that this at least got the staff members in there to think a bit more about the environment, and maybe maybe maybe they’ll ask their manager to put a recycle bin in the gym! :)☺️☺️💃🏻 💚 For some context, water #bottles in garbage cans sucks. These little bottles will now exist for over 1,000 years, while they decompose into micro-plastics, leeching into the air and oceans and ultimately into our food and water :(, and while doing so they will continue to release #methane and co2 from their slow #decomposition process. SO - #recycle 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻!! #giveashit #oneplanet #oneearth #reduce #reuse #reusablebottles #everydayisearthday #compost #earthday🌎 #reducereuserecycle♻️ #greengirl #plasticsucks #planetorplastic

Wildlife shouldn’t be attached to a plastic bottle!!!! ・・・ A sad adaptation to a common problem in the Pacific Ocean. 🌊🦀🐠 🐚 A plastic bottle found off shore with an entire microscopic universe attached to it, including 2 crabs... a sad state of affairs. What can you do to minimize single use plastic? 🦀🐚🐠 . 🍬 Refuse single-use plastic: Refuse plastic bags, bottles, cups, cutlery, straws, plates, ... and invest in reusable alternatives. They save tons of waste and money, think of how many plastic bottles you don’t have to throw away when you have a reusable one. . 🍬 Shop plastic-free and in bulk: Shop loose produce without plastic packaging. Go to the farmer’s market or bulk stores and bring your own containers. Refuse to buy unnecessarily packaged foods. . 🍬 Repair & Recycle: Many things can be easily repaired or recycled and don’t always need to be disposed of immediately. Consider borrowing, renting, or buying vintage or second-hand when you need something. Where do you try to save plastic in your everyday routine? Where do you struggle? 🌱 #plasticban #planetorplastic #plasticfree #reuse #reduce #recycle #plasticpollution #zerowaste #noplastic #nowaste #lessplastic #plasticwaste #plasticfree #passonplastic #nomoreplastic #ecology #eco #ecofriendly #environment #environmentallyfriendly #hawaii #isle #takeaction #oahu #maui #bigisland #kauai #green #sustainability

After Supertyphoon Yolanda ravaged the town of Basey, Samar (about a 1.5 hour plane ride from Manila) in 2013, a sustainable livelihood project was born that has grown to what today is a thriving weaving industry in this small provincial town of over 55,000 people. ⁣ ⁣ Our pouches are individually handwoven by weavers from Basey and are made from the tikog grass and leaves or “banig” fiber/straw. We’re working with the weavers to bring to Guam new colors and designs. 💚
