Let’s be real👌 — It ain’t all glass jars, amber bottles, zero plastic products and homemade things around here in my humble abode. I wish. It is however my goal to be that full blown eco goddess saving our planet one small footprint at a time 👣  Instagram will show my goals and journey to zero waste living; it’s me sharing ideas on how we can live lighter on our planet, joining this community of epic earth warriors. However, together with my waste efforts, the reality is: I still buy some food wrapped in plastic; still buy some cleaning products; and yeah, still use the odd Colgate toothpaste every now and again. And it doesn’t end there 🤭  I could make the excuse that it’s not very convenient (which is true) for me get to the zero waste shop for my toothy tabs (which I love). Although, I know could’ve made a bigger effort. But let’s not beat ourselves up about these gaps in effort that do happen? And let’s not judge people or let others judge us for buying chicken (yes, meat😱) wrapped in plastic whilst we buy veggies loose and naked? Everyone is on their own path, all we can do is encourage and help others make sustainable changes in their lifestyle. If you feel so inclined to judge and release your inner tiger, judge the companies and industries with large environmental impacts. And whilst you’re judging, boycott their sorry ass — Reduce your impact where you can. That said, let’s not forget to have awareness of the waste we produce. With awareness comes action, and then everything falls into place when it can ✌️

I used to think the bulk food aisle was pretty odd. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I mean, why would anyone want to buy food without packaging? Packaging was colorful and convenient, and gave helpful information like cooking instructions and the expiration date. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The bulk aisle seemed intimidating and cumbersome by contrast with its self-serve bins and gravity-fed silos, and what was a freaking PLU anyway!? Packaged foods were safer, less messy and better quality, or so I thought.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ It turns out you pay a lot for single-use packaging—I’ve seen anywhere from 15-75% more compared to bulk foods. And for what? I've found the same (or better) quality rice, oats, flour, sugar, spices and more in bulk. ⁠⠀ ⠀ Buying in bulk is also a great way to reduce food and packaging waste—bring your own cloth bags or glass jars (if your store allows it) and fill away! Store your bulk goods in air-tight jars at home to keep them fresh, no expiration date needed. ⠀  But, do remember to jot down the PLU (Price Look Up) when you shop on your phone or bag or forearm, wherever you'll remember. It's how the cashier knows how much to charge you 😉⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #zerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastehome #zerowasteblogger #plasticfree #zerowastefood #zerowastekitchen #buyinbulk #bulkisbeautiful #bulkfood

So far I’ve gone through phases in life of eating pretty much completely raw food only - and I don’t mean sushi 🍣 , strict vegetarian (down to my shoes, yes), killing my own meat 🐮 and only eating something I’d raised, vegan 🌱 , late night yellow sticker only student days, and then a married-a-Texan-carnivore curveball, and a crazy sweet potatoes/brown rice/sun butter 🌻 situation to figure out colic 🤣... It’s not been with the ‘fads’ - I mean no one’s ever though raw vegan eating or veggie shoes are actually cool have they?! But I’ve always been on a quest for what’s ‘right’, or ‘best’, or ‘natural’ or something?! . I worked in a vet clinic as a teenage Saturday job and one day the vet on duty explained the science of the Atkins diet to me (and why it probably wasn’t the best route long term) and it made me just fascinated by the science and trends and talk about how we eat. . Aside from 🚫 peanuts we don’t have food rules but the closest to rules currently are no chocolate that isn’t fairly traded 🚫, and as much as possible 🚫 no food in plastic.  Recently our eating has become more defined by the story behind our food in terms of where it comes from, how it’s packaged, and then fitting that into our budget. It’s led us to lots of organic local fruit and veg, mostly unpackaged, mostly unprocessed, some bits of well raised dairy and very occasional well reared meat (mostly because the kind that I think actually is eco friendly is very expensive and we’re pretty happy without it), whole grains, sourdough bread, tons of nuts and seeds, and some fairtrade organic chocolate. But it’s funny how in general what leaves the lighter footprint on the earth also seems to be what serves our bodies the best too. And that’s not lost on me. I love it. 🌎 What defines your eating? Are you trying to eat package or plastic free - how do you find it? 🌱 . P.s. also that paper tape from @zerowastelarder is my new

🌿🌍🌊 Sustainable Swaps 🌊🌍🌿 . . What swaps have you made to go plastic free? . . My first ever sustainable swaps were reusable shopping bags and a reusable water bottle. . . Then slowly but surely, I made conscious efforts to reduce single use plastic in my day to day life. I hope to share tips with you in my video tutorials to help you on your plastic free journey. . . As photographed here are a few of my favourites sustainable swaps. 🌿 . . You might think that just you and your family making a few changes here and there will not change the world, but when lots of people take little steps- big things can happen. . . Switching to DIY, vegan, or naturally formulated products is not just better for you but is better for the world around you. Natural ingredients in recyclable containers mean that you can enjoy your beautifying regime without increasing your environmental impact. . . . #peacewiththewild #plasticproject #plasticfreeliving #zerowastehome #zerowastetips #zerowasteliving #zerowastecollective #ecoliving #plasticfreeuk #ecofriendly #ecolife #zerowaste #zerowastebathroom #goingzerowaste #goingplasticfree #savetheplanet #sustainable #gogreen #reusables #saynotoplastic #climatechange #sustainableswaps #bambootoothbrush

Our go to Chocolate Chip Cookies 🍪 ... I used to churn dozens of these out each week along  with hundreds of doughnuts, most of you weren’t here the but it was crazy 😅 😜 One of the reasons I stopped the business was the amount of waste it had to create to stick to environmental health laws 😭 I filled a trash bag for each session I baked. Not ok. So same recipe, another version I can’t sell but: Package free nutty chocolate chip cookies 🍪 🙌🏼. It’s a recipe avoiding gluten, grains, soy and dairy with the option for vegan too makes them perfect for a crowd who might have different eating needs over the holiday season! I LOVE that I can now get everything I need in bulk too 🙌🏼 1/3 cup coconut oil 3/4 cup sucanat Or coconut sugar  2 eggs (Or replace with flax eggs)  2 cups almond flour  1/4 cup coconut flour  Good pinch pink salt 1 tsp cinnamon  1/3 cup chocolate chips or chunks  2/3 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans and macadamias cos I was so excited to find them in bulk!  Mix together oil and sugar till smooth, then beat in the eggs or flax egg. Food in the flour, salt and cinnamon until well combined. Finally stir in the chocolate and nuts and scoop into 12 balls on a limes baking tray. Press them down slightly with the underside of a glass.  Bake at 150°C in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and they can just be lifted. Let them cool before transferring and they will harden up slightly to a chewy rich and delicious chocolate chip cookie!

Como eu esquento minhas marmitas congeladas, opção 1: no banho maria no fogão. Encho a frigideira de água, coloco o potinho e deixo no fogo tampado por uns 20min. O fogo esquenta por baixo e o vapor esquenta por cima. É rápido, a comida fica quentinha e gostosa.⠀ ⠀ O potinho é de vidro, desses que pode congelar ou colocar no forno, por isso não tem perigo. :)⠀ ⠀ Obs: eu não tenho micro-ondas porque nunca gostei, nunca soube usar e nunca fez sentido pra minha casa. Mas se você tem: é bem mais prático e rápido. 😂

How do you reduce plastic waste? 🧐✨
Um meine Zahnverfärbungen zu lösen, mach ich mir immer mal wieder Aktivkohlepasta selbst. Dazu braucht ihr 1 TL Aktivkohlepulver und 2 EL Kokosöl. Beides hellt die Zähne wieder auf. Mit der Paste putz ich mir dann 1-2 Wochen die Zähne, bis sie wieder schön aufgehellt sind. Zusätzlich kann man auch noch den Mund morgens 20 min mit Kokosöl durch spülen, das ist super für die Mundhygiene und hellt auch die Zähne auf.😊 Habt einen tollen Sonntag 💕 #zerowaste  #plasticfree #sustainable #ecofriendly #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastebathroom
