Incutir bons hábitos é essencial desde tenra idade. E nada melhor do que poder associar a importância de uma correta higiene oral ao benefício do uso de materiais que não coloquem em causa a biodiversidade e preservação do ecossistema. 🌱 🔹Sugerimos as escovas de bambu, para criança, da @babueco . 👏 
O cabo e a embalagem são 💯% #biodegradáveis e as cerdas extra suaves (para um correto cuidado dos primeiros dentinhos) em nylon sem BPA (bisfenol A, um composto orgânico usado no fabrico de plásticos que mimetiza as hormonas do organismo e pode causar efeitos negativos na nossa saúde) e podem ser facilmente removidas com uma pinça e colocadas na reciclagem.♻️ As escovas de criança são ainda uma doçura pelo tamanho reduzido, ergonómico e perfeito para os mais pequenos aí de casa. 👶👦 Ah, e podem ser facilmente guardadas e levadas para qualquer lugar com o porta escova de dentes em bambu, também da @babueco e disponível na nossa loja online! 📲 
Obrigada à mamã pela disponibilização da fotografia e pela partilha desta maravilhosa rotina do nosso menino! 😍 🌿Para um compromisso desde muito pequeno! 🌿

  • Something I’m currently working through is getting out of the money-spending habit. Going to malls and stores to hang out, thus buying unnecessary things, was one of my favorite ways to hang out! Lately, over the last year, I’ve tried to reserve myself and save shopping trips for thrift store hunts for items my house or wardrobe needed. Most recently, I got a throw pillow for our couch, a pair of waterproof duck boots, a stainless steel insulated mug, and a few books! Do you shop secondhand? What’s the best find you’ve come across? #reducedcarbonfootprint

  • IDEAS FOR ZERO WASTE BATH/HEALTH/COSMETICS/BEAUTY

I’ve just been to the amazing @bulkmarketuk in Hackney to restock on some essentials! They have everything (literally) that you’ll need in the bathroom cabinet. I refilled my @faithinnature_uk conditioner back in September and it’s only just run out so I’ve come back to stock up five months later so it lasted ages! I didn’t really get on with solid shampoo and conditioner so I’ve chosen to refill old honey jars 🏺 
I’ve also been after a zero waste / refill hand cream as my hands get so dry and horrible in the winter! I bought my other honey jar and refilled it with some mango butter - you only need a tiny bit and your hands feel soooo moisturised 🥰

I didn’t get on with the charcoal @georganicsuk floss so I’ve now bought the white silk one as it’s less thick so fingers crossed 🤞🏽 and I also got a new bamboo toothbrush. All 4 for £12 and will all last ages. 🥳

Bulk Market is awesome as they have a full on cosmetics station - so you can get zero waste facial oils, make lil balms, hand and face butters and more!!!! Go and visit if you’re ever in Hackney!

  • El plástico ha contaminado hasta los lugares mas remotos en La Tierra. 
Se han encontrado fibras sintéticas en el océano a 11Km de profundidad 😳.
Piensa en el recorrido que hicieron esos plásticos para llegar ahí, cuantos puntos de contacto tuvieron antes? 🐠

Todos podemos ayudar a reducir el problema del plástico en los océanos, tomando algunas medidas simples en nuestra vida diaria, ya sea en nuestra casa, colegio, trabajo o viajes!

  • Hoy jueves de #tbt les quiero contar un poco sobre cómo comenzamos con @koko_ecoproductos

Fue a mediados del 2016 cuando estaba atendiendo la tienda de mis padres y muchas personas se  acercaban a preguntar por pantaletas plásticas y pañales de tela de gasa o de lanilla de algodón, porque había una notable escasez de pañales desechables y comprarlos era algo costoso para algunos padres. Para aquel entonces yo estaba recién egresada de la universidad, tenía gastos médicos y poco trabajo de ilustración, entonces mi papá al ver que yo tenía habilidad para la confección, me propuso que hiciera pantaletas plásticas para la tienda y así aliviar la necesidad adquisitiva y económica de pañales desechables y poder tener un ingreso extra de dinero.

Comencé a coser y coser pañales de tela y me apasione por ellos y quise ir más allá e investigar todo sobre los pañales de tela, y encontré que en muchos lugares de el mundo es más común el uso de pañales de tela con la premisa no solo de ahorrar dinero, sino también de reducir la cantidad de basura que generan miles y miles de pañales desechables que tardan en descomponerse 500 años aproximadamente.

Esto último me pareció una barbaridad que nunca me había cuestionado, pero que me llevo a seguir diseñando y confeccionando con más convicción pañales de tela y otros productos ecológicos en tela que pueden ser reusables, reciclables y reducen el consumo de parabenos y polímeros perjudiciales para la salud, y que terminan en los vertederos de basura junto con el dinero que desembolsillamos por ellos.

  • We’ve been a bit quiet on here again recently. Sometimes it’s a bit of a challenge balancing everything that goes on in life and social media is one of the first things to take a back seat. When we’re crazy busy we focus on our customer service and getting your lovely plastic free goodies out so it’s not the end of the world. Especially as we do want to make our social as ‘social’ as possible and respond to all your questions and messages! .
.
.
Anyway, I saw this quote the other day and it reminded me why we’re doing what we’re doing so I thought it’d be good to share. I’ve seen it before, I’m sure you have too, but it’s was the first time it inspired me to watch Annie Leonard’s ‘Story Of Stuff’, which is obviously brilliant. So simple yet effective. Which is, incidentally, what we’re trying to be. I encourage you to dedicate 20 minutes of your time to it if you haven’t already 💚

  • SAMPAH PLASTIK DARI TAHUN 1976 AJA AMPE SEKARANG MASIH UTUH.... 😲😲😲 .
.
.
Surprised? .
.
.
Every bit of plastic you've ever thrown out still exists, and will stick around long after you're gone!

This Yoplait container celebrating the 1976 Montreal Olympics is still here 44 years later in near-perfect condition, found during a beach cleanup in Dénia, Spain earlier this month. A plastic bottle takes 450 years on average to break down. That's literally hundreds of years for a marine animal to get killed by plastic we use once for no more than a few minutes. In fact, plastic kills more than 1.5 million animals every year.

  • Il pesce spada cinese o pesce elefante è il primo animale del 2020, ad essere dichiarato ufficialmente estinto.
Era arrivato sulla terra 75 milioni di anni fa, l'uomo si trova sulla terra da circa MEZZO MILIONE di anni

Era considerato il “re dei pesci d’acqua dolce, per le sue dimensioni considerevoli poteva arrivare fino a 7 metri pesare fino a 250 kg e la sua principale caratteristica era il muso allungato.

Jemnučký peeling s veľkou silou 💪 ktorý odstraňuje nečistoty a odumreté bunky. Je na všetky typy pleťky a čo je najsamúžasnejšie upokojuje aj citlivé pleťky. 
Obsahuje hlavne kakaové dropy 🍫 ktoré sú z #fairtrade Madagaskar, vzácny olej #marula a panenské kokosové mlieko z Mozambiku.

  • Biasanya kalo belanja, mba mba kasir pas mau bayar selalu nanya pake kantong plastik tambah 500 rupiah ya bu.. Seketika jiwa akuntansi ku pun tergugah.. kalo 10 kantong plastik aja aku pake untuk belanja bulanan ku berarti aku udah keluar budget 5000 dong ya, trus kalo 1 bulan aku 5 kali belanja dikali 5x5000=25000, trus dihitung 1 tahun  12x25000=300000.. Wah ternyata kalo dihitung hitung lumayan setahun hemat 300 ribu bisa nambah budget buat beli baju lebaran 😆

Bawa tas belanja sendiri = Ramah Lingkungan dan Ramah Budget juga ♻️ #zerowasteliving

  • Yes governments and corporations need to change, they will take a long time and they will only change if it makes sense to them. YOU are the first small step, if you already recycle then that’s an amazing start! But if you want to take it further and in the future be able to look back and say I was one of the movers and shakers to help fix the worlds sustainability issues.. take another step towards sustainable living! ✨
I hope I share some inspiring ideas to those that might not of thought of something in particular that I’ve shared. But there are sooo many other inspiring people and businesses out there doing such an amazing job at spreading the message. 
Educate yourself, and share 💖

I have completely fallen in love with everything @thrivingonplants puts out there, especially her pantry photos. Bulk truly is beautiful.
.
Not only am I jealous of her pantry, but I am green with envy in that she can find noodles in bulk! That's one bulk product that is hard for me to come by.

⚡️ If you could wish for one item to magically be put into the bulk at your grocery store, what would you choose? ⚡️

  • If I had the ability to wave a wand and make anything happen... I would make the resource/ carbon/ water footprint of every single item visible.

If every person knew how much water, land, soil/nutrients, energy & green house gases go into every single thing they own I think it would make them think twice.

Here are some insane facts for ya:
- it takes 700+ gallons of water to make a single new t-shirt
- It takes around 300 pounds of raw material to make a single iPhone
- more than 150 acres of our rainforests are lost every minute and 80% of all the deforesting of the rainforest is for cattle ranching.

There is 👏SO 👏 MUCH environmental damage happening behind the scenes that doesn’t get brought to light nearly enough...
So here I am to do it for you.
I live by a term I call “eco-minimalism.” Which essentially means to consume as little as possible (new resources, not second hand) because everything we buy has a significant footprint whether we see it or not.

So get creative! Reuse. Shop second hand FIRST. Support sustainable brands when you NEED something. The actions we take that seem “small” may have a much larger footprint than you think.

Have you had any small wins lately with talking yourself out of buying something? I always keep a wish list & what I talked myself out of list in my phone... I’d love yo hear some of yours!

  • Love a good organised pantry, we're big belivers that an organised pantry leads to less food waste. 
Don't forget to go give @ourecofriendlylife
A follow and show them your support!

What is your pantry like, clean and organised or missmatched mess? We won't lie, ours is a bit unorganized at the moment!

Our zero waste pantry goals are slowly coming to life 😍 All of the jars here are second hand, bought from various charity shops and boot fairs here locally in France. A lot of the food was bought in bulk, however some of it was bought in recyclable materials as we can't always get everything in bulk. As a little side note this is just a section of our jars, we still have and use plenty of other normal jars! However I'm all about the ~aesthetics~ haha so I'm thoroughly enjoying this corner of our kitchen right now 🙌

Don't you just love how jars just make everything look so much more awesome? ❤️

Have you ever tried to make your own oat milk from scratch? ⁠
⁠
�Making oat or nut milk from scratch is another great way to reduce packaging and plastic waste in our home. All the oat milk in our area seems to be packaged in plastic-lined cardboard boxes.⁠
⁠
�For this oat milk I mixed 1 cup of oats (bought in bulk) and 5 cups of water in a blender for about 1 minute. You could add 1-2 Tbsp of maple syrup for some extra sweetness if you want and some vanilla extract.  Then strain the liquid through a nut-milk bag or cheesecloth into a bowl. I used a cotton produce bag, that worked perfectly! Once you have drained all the liquid into the bowl you can add it to a glass bottle or jar. You can store the oat milk up to 4 days in the fridge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
⁠
I like to use oat milk for making my morning smoothie or in overnight oats! The pulps that remain after straining are also good to add to your smoothie or overnight oats if you don't want to waste any of the oat-goodness! ⠀⠀⠀⁠

  • #OldMeNewMe Tip 8 - reusable utensils 💚
⠀⠀
Old me used disposable cutlery when eating out. Which is a big bummer since this can’t be recycled ❌♻️ Thanks to the rise in take out meals, about 40 billion plastic utensils thrown out each year in America alone! Much ends up in the ocean, breaking down into micro plastic or harming marine life (Ocean Conservancy) 🐋 💔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if I’m honest, disposable cutlery is no fun to eat with anyway… anyone whose eaten hot soup with a plastic spoon knows this 💁‍♀️
⠀⠀
So new me keeps these reusables in my purse to use when I need it. A pair from the kitchen drawer also does the trick👌
⠀⠀
“Zero waste” is really just a series of small & simple changes that when done consistently add up to a lifestyle 🌈 So stick that fork in your bag!⚡️

  • What is the impact of a $10 cotton T-shirt? 👕
.
It takes 2,700 litres (590 gallons) of water just to grow enough cotton for a single T-shirt. This is enough for a person to drink water for 2 years!
.
In order to grow cotton, farmers use huge amounts of pesticides. Pesticides deeply pollute the soil and water for local populations.
.
Most workers in cotton fields (in India for example) do not have proper equipment to protect themselves from pesticides, and many suffer from lung, skin diseases, or cancer.
.
Working conditions in sewing factories are terrible, with workers earning less than $25 per month, in dangerous buildings (in Bangladesh for example).
.
Finally, T-shirts are soaked into toxic colorants. These colorants are not only dangerous for health, but also often end up in water (in China for example).
.
The production phase accounts for 70% of the environmental impact of a T-shirt.
.
After that, the impact is mainly the transportation and distribution carbon footprint, and finally the laundry and disposal of the t-shirt.
.
So what can we do?
.
If a T-shirt is very cheap, it is likely to have a huge environmental footprint. But not all expensive T-shirts are better!
.
Buy less, choose better. Look at the origin of the T-shirt, the materials used, and the quality. It’s better to buy less often and keep it for longer!
.
Choose second hand clothing. This is most sustainable option!
.
Finally, when disposing of the T-shirt, choose to donate it, re-sell it, or even use it as a cleaning cloth, but don’t send it to landfill!

  • Мне безумно нравится идея, что жить экологично – это легко, эстетично и приятно. Это мысль заряжает меня каждый день.

Да, я тоже не идеальна, не всегда всё получается гладко, не всегда это на 100% правильно. Но ведь не даром говорят «как корабль назовёшь, так он и поплывет» – я хочу назвать свой корабль «экология – это доступно и легко». В последнее время всё чаще об этом думаю. Как много всего именно в наших установках, в голове. Очень хочу смотреть проще, шире, свободнее - даже на такие сложные вопросы ✨

Спасибо вам, что вы здесь. Давайте вместе делать этот путь ещё интересней, круче и масштабней! 🙌🏻💛
