Reducing the amount of waste you bring in and the amount of trash that goes to the landfill is an important part of any green lifestyle. But there's a lot more to it than just recycling plastic or throwing your trash in a bin.
Introducing to you amazing blogger Jule from @thehappychoices and her inspiring blog thehappychoices.com (link in her profile and also in my instastory)
Her blog is all about👇
Hey my name is Jule, I grew up in the northern part of Germany and I always considered myself as an eco minded person. Brought my own bag, I grew up with recycling, I have been a vegetarian since the age of 10. But I needed to travel a bit to become aware about how bad the plastic pollution is all around the world! I had to learn and accept that governments and laws won't make changes quick enough, that plastic recycling is not the solution... That's when I decided that I want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. I cannot change laws but I can change my consumption habit and that's when I started to quit using single use plastics. Then I stopped buying food and other products in plastic packaging. I started to make clean ups wherever I am..
And thats when I started my blog www.thehappychoices.com. To share my experiences, to show how people can make small changes with big impacts. How you can live healthier and even save money buy using reusables, buying non fancy products, by making your own beauty products, etc... I live and travel plastic free since July 2017 now, and even though it is not easy everywhere in this world I don't want to go back! I really like to see it as treasure hunt (and to be happy about every plastic free choice I have), rather then a mission impossible (where I would only concentrate on the things I can't have anymore) :) Keep smiling and make some daily happy choices!

This was my first time shopping at the bulk section of a supermarket in my hometown. I would say everything went well but unfortunately it isn’t that easy in Hungary (or is it just me? 🤷🏻♀️) When I told them I want to use my own bags they didn’t let me. Then I told them I do it all the time in another city. Then a women had to come with me to check if I cheat with the products. 🤦🏻♀️ It was awkward and she didn’t understand why I did it. But nonetheless I’ve done it and I had the chance to show my mum how easy and cheap it is so they also always go to the bulk section. 💃🏻 #zerowaste#lesswaste#notrash#thelowimpactmovement#noplastic#noplasticbags#nopackaging#bulk#bulkfood#vegan#yayforearth

Those of us with gorgeous doggies use plastic bags all the time.
And what better way to pay back the community and environment than to collect the 💩 with biodegradeable bags. Check out @beco_pets these are strong and not stinky!!!! I have been using these for a while now.
They are awesome. #notpaidadvertisement#keepnzclean#plasticbagfree#noplasticbags
please reuse shopping bags.
start eliminating single use plastics.
it’s a small step that can create big impact on our environment.

I bought this reusable organic cotton bag last week at @wrayorganicmtgravatt and I am loving it. It's meant for groceries but I use it for everything. It's super cute and very light weight so I literally throw it in my purse almost everyday in case I purchase anything when I'm out and about. Little by little I’m aiming for #plasticfreeliving ✨🌏 Do you use reusable bags for everyday errands or only groceries or not at all? 📷: @pinterest

Cobalah merenung, hal baik apa yang sudah kita lakukan untuk kelestarian bumi ini?
Apakah tindakan dan perbuatan nyata kita sudah cukup baik untuk menyayangi dan melestarikan alam di bumi ini?
Mari kita mulai dengan langkah-langkah sederhana untuk melindungi bumi dari kerusakan dan kehancuran alam. Langkah sederhana dan nyata dalam kehidupan sehari-hari untuk hasil yang besar bagi Ibu Pertiwi.
Kurangi penggunaan bahan dari plastik, buang sampah pada tempatnya, kelola sampah dengan baik. Ajak orang sekitar melakukan hal yang sama.
Kalau bukan mulai dari diri sendiri, akan sulit untuk mengajak orang lain melakukannya:) Yuk sayangi bumi☺☺🏞⛰🌍🌎🌏🏜🌅 @kementerianlhk
I told my neighbours that I will ask those who buy our UndiMaria campaign caps, tshirts & badges to carry them in their recycle bags or with their hands. This morning a bag of recylce bags were found in front of my gate - to be used for my event and as a show of support for recycling from my friends!
Whether it be a big step or a little step towards positive change, both will be moving you in the right direction.
This can consist of even the smallest action such as taking your own reusable bag out to places- such as the grocers or even if you're just going for a walk (my bag even tells me to do just that).
This eliminates the possibility of having to use plastic bags from stores- a great contributer to devastating waste produce in the world.
My parents were shockers for plastic bag use but by verbalising to them the negative effects of this and how easily they can make a positive change, they are now proud reusable-bag-only beings. All that was needed was to create a greater understanding for them and provide a simple solution. A small start but a start nonetheless.
What's stopping you from making this small change or helping someone else understand the benefits of doing the same..? #zerowaste#positivechange#noplasticbags
Did you know every toothbrush you’ve ever had still exists today? Hawaii’s coastline is littered with them.
I love my bamboo toothbrush, mainly because I know I can throw the handle in my compost rather than the ocean. #rethinkNWA
More than 30 kilograms of plastic material has been discovered in the stomach of the dead whale that was washed ashore at a remote beach on the Greek island of Santorini last week.
Scientists conducting a post-mortem examination said the sperm whale died because of the amount of plastic in her stomach.
The 9-meter (30 feet) mammal died of gastric shock caused by ingesting the plastic. It was unable to remove the material from its digestive system, causing peritonitis and eventually death.
The dead mammal, which was at an advanced stage of decay, was discovered by a diver.
The carcass will be buried in Santorini.
A recent study published in the academic journal Environmental Pollution has revealed the shocking reality of plastic debris polluting the ocean.
According to data compiled off the coast of Ireland by researchers at Galway-Mayo IT and University College Cork, almost ten percent of whales, dolphins and porpoises examined were found to have plastics in their digestive tracts.
Environmental organizations warn that plastic pollution is a growing threat to whales and dolphins as well as seabirds and other marine creatures.
Fifty-six percent of all whale and dolphin species, from small fish-eating dolphins to the largest filter-feeding whales, have been recorded eating marine plastics they have mistaken for food.

Hi Friends, the second challenge of the Earth Day Challenge was to use a reusable bag instead of plastic bags. Mom and I got some fresh fruit, veggies, and granola that we all fit into these cool cotton bags. I got some delisious snacks too because mom says I am a good boy. Let’s save the turtles together🐢❤️🌱🌎 #reusablebags#noplasticbags

☀️ As we head towards #earthday2018 I have been looking for new ways to clean up my act!! One of the things that I love about shopping with my kids is the chance to have great conversations about how to choose what to buy & why. We have always been a thrift store family, only buying second hand has been a huge part of my life forever and now I have the opportunity to share this desire and love of the hunt:) with my kids! We also as a family have decided to start using eco friendly toothbrushes and bar shampoo to cut down on the waste from our hygiene products...every little choice along the way makes a difference!! 🌎☀️✨🌿 I am also looking forward to a plastic free produce summer!!! Yee Haw!!! What are the ways that you have decided to switch it up? 😘😘😘 #growsomethinggreen#noplasticbags#noplastic#greenliving#findyourwings#upcycledclothing#thesalvageheart ♥️ #goinggreen
