  • Remember those second hand clothes that you donated to charity? Whatever doesn’t sell gets shipped to Africa and is often re-sold by local traders. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While the trading of second hand clothing helps bring income to some of the poorest people in the world, this has huge negative affects on the local textile industry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Giving your clothes to charity and buying more isn’t always a good thing! The fashion industry is responsible for 92 million tons of solid waste dumped in landfills each year, (according to the Copenhagen Fashion Summit) meaning that we buy way more than we need! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everything you buy leaves a lasting impact on the environment. Remember that the most sustainable thing you can do is wear what is already in your closet! 🌿

  • Australia 🇦🇺 These small pink ‘filler flowers’ tucked in amongst roses are often under-appreciated but quietly effective. Waxflower may not be a household name but it can now be found at most florists thanks to its perfect gap-filling qualities.

It's relatively new to the UK but you wouldn't know it as it’s so prevalent in British shops today. It’s happy in desert climates and is native to Australia where a leading breeder, @helix_australia, is busy creating new hybrid varieties in labs with unique colours and shapes. This might soon lead to waxflower in colours never imagined like yellow and orange.

Breeders like Helix partner with farms all over the world where climates are well suited to growing wax, including locations like Israel - where most of Britain’s waxflower comes from.

Gafni Farm is one such grower, based in Isreal and producing Australian varieties. It became an environmentally conscious farm in 2008 with developments like efficient lighting systems and solar fumigation without chemicals - making best use of the natural hot sun to grow this desert bloom. 📷 Orio nguyen

  • EARTH FRIENDLY TIPS 🌎⁣
🌱 Use a canvas/hemp bag for shopping.⁣
🌱 Say no to plastic straws! Try bamboo, steel, paper, or metal ones instead. I keep one handy in my bag so there’s no nasty surprises. The same goes for plastic cutlery. ⁣
🌱 Go Vegan! A no brainier. This is the SINGLE BIGGEST thing you can do to reduce your impact on Earth. Head to www.challenge22.com for help on this 👍🏽
🌱 Buy a re-usable coffee cup and water bottle. Lots of coffee shops now provide discount if you bring your own keep cup! ⁣
🌱 Mind the wrap. Choose loose produce and avoid plastic whenever you can.⁣
🌱 Buy as little or as much as you need in bulk. My favourite store for bulk shopping is @thesourcebulkfoods⁣ .. zero waste heaven
🌱 Refill your own jars and containers. Have fun with it! Honestly, labelling a glass jar is incredibly satisfying. So is a lovely pantry filled with organised, labelled jars... 😍⁣
🌱 Start your own compost pile. This is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. It cultivates healthy plants, conserves water, eliminates the need for chemicals and reduces landfill. ⁣
🌱 Avoid fast fashion! I love buying clothes second hand on Depop. (Find me on there @ depop.com/emclarke12!)⁣

Every small change can make a huge difference. If you have any other tips, feel free to comment them below 🙏🏽💭

  • Así de bien ha quedado la sala de convenciones del hotel @silkenamaraplaza de San Sebastián con las botellitas de cerámica hechas a mano 🤚🏼 por @miyaya_ceramica . Da gusto que haya gente que apueste por el diseño local y sostenible. Ellos han empezado sustituyendo las botellas de agua de plástico por estas preciosas y útiles botellitas de cerámica. ¡Gracias! 🤗

That's how the convention room of the hotel @silkenamaraplaza in San Sebastián looks after placing the little ceramic bottles handmade by @miyaya_ceramica . It's fantastic to see people who are committed to local and sustainable design. They have started replacing plastic water bottles with these beautiful and useful ceramic bottles. Thank you! 🤗

  • More ways to live a more natural, waste free life...introducing @hannahpad_australia the organic and reusable menstrual pad 🌾 Something that is not spoken about anywhere near enough (I wish I had so much more information about a menstrual cup before I invested) is what we can do to give up these single use items we need every month. Thankfully @hannahpad_australia has now launched and given us washable, reusable pads! These can be worn in addition to a cup, or for some, by themselves. If anyone would like anymore I for on the above, feel free to DM me and I’ll be more than happy to help with any questions on this ☺️🌾 #HannahPad #HannahPadPartner

  • l o w - w a s t e  s e l f  c a r e •• I’ve been slowly reducing the plastic in my self-care regimen and this is where I’m at. There’s probably way too many products in here but not all of these are in daily use. My current heavy hitters are my @meowmeowtweet grapefruit deodorant and my @deciem The Ordinary arsenal. There was an overwhelming amount of products to choose from so for now I’m trying out Buffet for anti-aging, the Plant-Derived Squalane for hydration and a heat protectant for my hair, and the Caffeine Solution for dark circles under my eyes. Let me know if you use any of these brands or if you have any questions about them!
