  • First off, plastic should be avoided. Period. However, it is not always possible to be 100% so let’s get 🤓educated on what these signs mean...
.
.
These signs were originally designed to identify the type of plastic used so we know which ones can be recycled and reused (eg 1,2,4,5) .
.
.
However, I’ve lumped them by potential toxicity. Avoid those on the right... ones on the left are ‘safer’ ...And there is one in the middle which is in between.
.
.
☠️Plastics can leach chemicals, particularly if exposed to sun, heat, repeated use, abrasives. So ideally you don’t want any warm food in contact with plastic. .
.
🙅🏻‍♀️The biggest concerns are endocrine disrupters like BPA (note BPA free may use BPS or BPF which are just as bad), phthalates and dioxins, but really, there’s is a cocktail of other toxins 😷#hormoneimbalance #guthealth .
.
👩‍🔬Here are some common uses of these by the number you see inside the triangle:
.
.
1- (this is usually deemed safe but because arsenic is used in manufacturing, so I put it in the middle) - soft drinks, water bottle, store bought food. These are single use so recycle them but DO NOT re-use them as they degrade over time.
.
.
2-milk jugs, juice and detergent bottles. Considered the safest, and most stable (ie less breakdown) .
.
.
3-Cling film, food wrap, PVC pipe, teething rings and toys 🤬 - major source of phthalates, AVOID
.
.
4-Frozen food bags, squeezable bottles, Cling film - considered safer. .
.
5-reusable microwaveable ware, kitchen ware, disposable plates and cups- more heat resistant than others so considered safer but personally, I wouldn’t microwave plastic 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
.
6-styrofoam cups, plates, disposable take away boxes - AVOID
.
.
7-this is the miscellaneous category many new materials eg plant based ones,now fall under. So contact the company and ask what specifically they used. 🌟If they say it’s BPA free, ask if it’s also BPS/F free

  • We are thrilled to share that the Saddleworth Fashion Fix clothes swap, stalls and auction raised over £1700 last night. Not only did a lot of fabulous clothing find new homes and not go to landfill, but the auction of beautiful art and rarities was warmly received.

The evening was enhanced by a fashion show of items available to swap - photos you can see here - stalls of art and sustainable living items, live music and stonkingly good food.

We owe a debt of love and gratitude to @sophiehheywood who masterminded an event where ethical meets charity meets FUN. Thank you Sophie and to all the wonderful volunteers, donors of items, time, musician skills and equipment that made this night such a success. You’ve all helped change lives.

  • ⚠️El cambio climático es consecuencia directa de como los seres humanos estamos llevando a cabo el desarrollo.
❗️América Latina aporta el 6% de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, y además somos los principales deforestadores del planeta. Por eso con la madera plástica que generamos con “Las botellitas de amor” evitamos seguir talando arboles y sobretodo ayudamos a reducir la contaminación con plásticos de un solo uso.
Los plásticos de un solo uso, la mayoría no puede reciclarse debido a su composición y por lo tanto terminan en el agua, en rellenos sanitarios o basurales a cielo abierto (ilegales).
✅Con las botellas de amor proponemos generar una “economía circular” donde el residuo se convierte en recurso.
Si bien el reciclaje es la última opción, hay envoltorios o materiales que son inevitables. Por eso los invito a que eso que no se puede evitar podamos ponerlo en las botellas y así crear madera sintética para la construcción.

  • Wedding dress alteration 💙
Before and after pictures 👗

My lovely client Ru asked me to do alteration on her dress she wore 10 years ago to her wedding.
She was eight month pregnant at that time.
She dug out the dress a few month ago to see what new life she can bring to it.... ... And this is the result...
After consulting some options we decided to cut out the top and keep the bottom of the dress, sides were taken in, zip was added to the back of the skirt and waist band from left over fabric was fitted in. 
Skirt doesn't only look fantastic on Ru but her old wedding dress now looks fresh with new life added  to it which can now be used for decades ahead... What a great idea to recycle your old clothing !!! #alterations #seamstress #wedding #fashion #weddingdress #denimproject #cheltenham #tailor #sewingskills #clothing #recycling #clothesrecycling #isew

This new invention gives us hope so please read the entire caption, share this post with your followers and leave a comment below with thoughts too! The City of Kwinana in Western Australia has hailed the trial of two new drainage nets a success as it continues its journey towards less waste and increased sustainability. The nets were installed at two locations earlier this year in an effort to reduce rubbish from drainage systems within the City, particularly in areas where road drainage is discharged into public open spaces and reserves. During the trial, 370kg (roughly 815 pounds) of debris consisting of food wrappers, plastic bottles, sand and tree leaves was cleaned out of the nets. Mayor Carol Adams says, “The nets capture gross pollutants carried by stormwater from the local road network before those pollutants are discharged and contaminate the natural environment at the downstream end of the outlet area. This ensures that the habitat of the local wildlife is protected and minimizes the risk of wildlife being caught in the nets.” Now three more locations have been identified as suitable drainage points for further nets to be installed following the trial’s success! Share this post and tag people who need to see it too as we must try all sorts of new ideas/inventions to help alleviate our #plasticpollution problem RIGHT NOW! #newinvention #endplasticpollution #karmagawa #savethereef
