  • 면세점의 안타까운 풍경😢
공항 면세품 인도장에는
받자마자 버려지는 비닐로 가득하다.
내가 주문한 것만 해도 비닐이 잔뜩
왜 싼 것만 생각하고 이런건 생각 못했을까 반성
어떻게 대체될 방법은 없을까...

  • Pre-low waste:
Chronically shy, gets embarrassed easily, don’t like to make a fuss, rather people not pay attention to me, don’t particularly like talking to strangers, dislike big groups, dislike even more a big group of strangers
♻️
Low(ish) waste life:
Still all of above, but learning to be a little more confident within myself and not so afraid anymore about politely but assertively asking if food and drinks can be placed in my reusables

  • GARBAGE ENZYME.
Sounds terrible but it isn't that disgusting.

You can clean your house with this.
To make garbage enzyme, you need 100g brown sugar, 300g vegetable or fruit waste and 1000ml water.

After chopping up the vegetables I need for a meal, the unwanted parts I put them in a chopper and mixed into the brown sugar and water solution in a 1.5litre PET bottle.

You have to release the carbon dioxide that forms very quickly at first, every few days initially, to once every week. After fermenting for at least 3 months, you can use it.

For mopping floors, a small capful to a full pail of water. Apparently ants won't visit you often if you clean your floors with enzyme.

You can put 1ml enzyme to 1000ml water and use it as fertilizer for your plants. Or as an insect repellent spray.

There IS something I DON'T like about this way of cleaning. I find my finger nails thinning out. A neighbour made a 5 litre bottle of enzyme and accidentally cracked it open on her tiled floors. By the time she finished cleaning up, she realised her tiles are lighter in color than the tiles that were not spilled on.

You can make up one batch easily on a day's scraps, which means you need a LOT of space to store those bottles. I quit making after a while since I use them so slowly.

Yes, garbage enzyme is all eco friendly and natural, just use with caution. I don't like it but you just may.

  • 👚Esto es una piedra quita bolitas,es una buena opción para quitar la pelusa de la ropa o el pelo de tu mascota. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Conforme su uso se va desgastando y de esta manera no deja huella en el medio ambiente. 🐾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
📌Las consigues en los mercados y así evitas los rodillos a los que les tienes que quitar la hojita con pegamento.

  • This little stain remover stick is one of our core items people are snapping up on our Renovation Sale. It’s one of the most “sold” by customers to others customers things in the shop since people have had such good luck with it. It’s great to have laundry supplies that actually work, that are non-toxic and plastic free. If you’re inventing in good quality clothing, it pays to take good care of them so they last for many years. I included a #bhs shot of @jocelynne.jpg getting the shot of the  freshly folded laundry ready to be carried up the stairs in my imaginary world ( or the beautiful @thefergpec setting for  our recent photoshoot) Did you know that everything is 30% off while quantities last throughout the shop until August 4th? We’re selling out of some of our core products since we started the sale so better come  in soon or have a shop online & know that we will restock before we open back up with our freshly painted hole-free walls!

  • Poco a poco puedes hacer cambios en cuanto a tus artículos de plástico por alternativas más eco-amigables. Un consejo que encontré útil fue no sentir la necesidad de ir y comprar todo de inmediato. La mejor manera de hacer la transición de tus artículos o productos es que se agoten (o se rompan). La idea no es ser perfectos, pero más conscientes e ir haciendo estos cambios paulatinamente, un artículo a la vez.

Aquí unos esenciales de baño. Aparte de reducir mi basura, he ahorrado mucho dinero con algunos artículos, como las rasuradoras. Las navajitas son más económicas que comprar una nueva de plástico cada vez. Los musús/loofas también son buenas no solo para bañarte, pero también para fregar, y super baratas (25 pesos o 4 x 100 en la calle)

Me gustaría saber de algún cambio que hayas hecho o te gustaría hacer! 👇

  • Se acuerdan que en una story les dije que la cáscara de limón 🍋🍊y los cítricos no los pongo en la lombricomposta? 🐛

No las pongo  PORQUE, es muy pequeña y me enseñaron que lo ácido, la cebolla, el ajo… puede cambiar el PH de la lombricomposta haciendo que huela feo o que las lombrices no estén tan felices. 
Les cuento esto mientras observo a las lombrices de mi lombricomposta, felices, ajá… como lombrices 😂 ya llevo más de una semana con ellas viviendo felizmente en mi cocina (luego les cuento lo maravilloso que va eso)
En fin, ¿qué hago con los residuos de las cáscaras de limón?
ESTO. 🍋✨ súper limpiador de cocina. 
Una de las cosas que más me shockeaba de tirar a la basura eran los contenedores infinitos con detergentes y limpiadores de casa y de cocina. 😷
Qué engaño y qué desperdicio, porque esos contenedores NUNCA SE DESHACEN Y NADIE LOS RECICLA… ¿tu los reciclas? yo no. 
Necesitamos menos de lo que nos hacen creer. 🤔

Hace ya un tiempito que he ido cambiando todo lo que está en la cocina. 
Siempre se los digo, es muy bueno empezar por ahí :) en la cocina están nuestros grandes errores de consumo que pueden ser modificados MUY fácilmente. 
_________________________________________
OK. Le escribí cloro porque es más fácil identificar y que la señora que me ayuda a limpiar sepa usarlo pero es básicamente un limpiador natural. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Tengo dos formas de hacerlo, aquí les dejo el how to de esta primer forma:
___________________________________________
En un frasco con boca grande, vacía vinagre blanco y cáscaras de limón o naranja. 
También puedes poner unos ramitos de romero. Y también a mi me gusta agregarle gotitas de aceite esencial de árbol de té (tea tree) que es súper anti-bacterial. 
Luego, tapa el frasco muy bien y déjalo reposar en tu alacena (amo esa palabra de peli) como por 10-15 días.
✨🍊
Listo, cuando pasen esos días, mezcla en un atomizador, mitad del vinagre con mitad de agua. 💦 
Yo siempre lo uso junto con bicarbonato de sodio. 
Esto sirve para limpiar superficies de cocina y también el baño. 
Enjoy.
Ah, y el jabón de platos que ven ahí? MARAVILLA, producto mexicano @desplastificate que encuentran en @alcachofayromero ✨💕

  • Los que han ido a carreras saben que se generan cantidades impresionantes de basura! Desde el entrenamiento hasta incluso después de la carrera. 🥇
Hice mi primer medio maratón a las 18 años (hace casi ya 10 años 🤭), desde entonces tuve la costumbre de correr el 21k de la ciudad donde estaba viviendo, este va a ser mi 4to medio maratón y estoy súper emocionada pero también me sorprende no haber prestado mucha atención a toda la basura que se generaba en las carreras, parecía normal ver todos los vasos y bolsas con agua en el piso 🤦‍♀️
En muchos lugares es lo mismo, en México o en Estados Unidos, corriendo, en bici o en triatlones. Siempre verás montones de residuos en el suelo.
Por eso @bichoverrrde y yo hicimos este video con 3 tips para evitar generar residuos antes, durante y después de la carrera 🏃‍♀️ 🏃‍♂️ 💚

  • This past Saturday, I completed my 25th lap around the sun. It’s hard to imagine that I’ve been on this planet for a quarter of a century. But truthfully, it’s absolutely MIND BLOWING how much has changed since my 24th and 23rd birthdays. Don’t underestimate how much can change in a year.
Something I’ve always struggled with is the idea of “we overestimate how much we can get done in a day. Yet we underestimate what can be done in a year.”
And by golly, SO much can change.
Even if today doesn’t feel as ‘productive’ as you’d like, or nothing feels different between today and Tuesday of last week, believe me, you’re growing, changing, and evolving into so much more than you could ever imagine. Don’t give up on them goals or yours. Dive into what your desires and joys are. Find a way to do more of those. But also, get out of your productivity mode, and spend time with people you care about. Get out there and meet new humans as often as you can. There are some pretty wonderful people out there, and spending time with others, giving and receiving love in all its forms, is what life is all about.

And on a side note, with this face app craze, it only has me patiently waiting to turn 85... Bring on the aging. I’m ready to be a hot grandma. ...also tempted to fulfill my childhood little mermaid dreams and go red now 👩‍🦰... a thought. (...that I’ll never do because I love having healthy hair too much. And like, zero waste minimal (zero effort) living, am I right?? 😉)

They use 100% renewable energy and are always working to reduce waste in all aspects of their business - how great is that?! ⁠

  • A day in San Francisco would not be complete without a trip to @rainbow_grocery! I bought this bulk haul on Saturday before a plastic-free meetup picnic with Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, founder of @plasticfreejuly, and Haley Clarke of @onyalife, which sponsored Rebecca’s US tour.
.
Swipe to see just a couple of the amazing items urban backpacker @noplasticstraws brought with her—a portable, collapsable coffee filter cone and a solar phone charger.
.
Yes, you do see a cat at the picnic in the last pic of this post. Nat came in a carrier and wore a harness and leash that he used to lead his caregivers around Lafayette Park.
