Shout out to @thecultch for having reusable towels in their washrooms! If more public places had these, we could reduce the amount of paper towel (which is compostable) ending up in the landfill! And yes, I’m aware that energy is required to wash the towels. But energy is also required to make new paper towel and uses up trees , so this seems like a better option
There's a stereotype sometimes associated ethical & sustainable fashion that it's not fashion forward or visually appealing. Well, we BROKE that stereotype last Saturday with our fashion show/installation featuring ALL eco-conscious designers and brands! 🌿💚
Summer essentials for a healthy scalp 🌿 I use a drop of these #nykaa#essentialoils in my hair shampoo recipes and concoctions. They work like absolute magic for dandruff or itchy heads. I’m going to come up with a couple more easy methods for quick organic shampoos made from natural things that are found in your vicinity like hibiscus, neem and guavas. And you can obviously add these oils to them as anti-bacterial solutions. They also come in glass bottles and hence, no plastic goodness 💚

And this is a (almost) zero waste shopping. I don’t manage to shop #zerowaste every time, but I’m getting better and better! 💪🏽🌎♻️ Bags from @ouni_lux /// E aqui está uma compra (quase) #lixozero . Eu não consigo trazer meus sacos reutilizáveis todas as vezes que vou ao supermercado, mas eu estou melhorando a cada dia! 💪🏽🌎♻️ Saquinhos da @ouni_lux.
Let the clothes you introduce to your body be sustainable and ethically made. .
The world we are creating is defined by the places we spend our money on.
Starting today, make sure you check these points before you buy any clothing. Let us take one step at a time towards conscious consumption.
Buy quality jeans that last! The fast fashion world produces less quality and volumes of quantity. Although cheap - we are paying a higher price than at the checkout counter. Be wise with your shopping. ♻️💚🌎 #tesorutreasures

Earth Week: My zero waste cleaning arsenal (cleaning in a safe no toxic way is an area I feel that I have mastered it but there is always room to improve and I love to hear of what other people are using so please do share!) In this picture: Top row left to right 1. Cotton towel (I could never own enough of these and since the menfolk here love to break my heart by using them to clean dirty things, I buy them very often 2. Envirocloth for cleaning all the things 3. Stainless steel bucket which I love 4. Metal dust pan and horsehair brush. Second row 5. Sheepskin duster. Dusts all the things and then gets all pretty and fluffy again after a good shake 6. Small spray bottle of wood oil (olive oil and lemon essential oil) 7. below the spray is carpet powder with a shaker top, baking soda, pine and whatever else I want to shake on the carpets and mattresses 8. Wooden heavy duty scrub brush 9. Lemon essential oil to clean anything and make everything smell great, also wonderful for removing sticky labels and gooey stuff 10. In the pump top jar is our homemade dishsoap 11. Dr Bronners for making dishsoap 12. Amber spray bottle full of diluted Thieves cleaner 13. Thieves cleaner (this is the main thing that is used to clean the entire house and homestead stuff 14. Chunk of beeswax for polishing wood counters, spoons and bowls 15. Above the beeswax is my vintage funnel to fill all the bottles (I may have mentioned that I collect vintage kitchen supplies, it's probably my favorite thing to collect) 16. Small knobby scrubber 17. Soft dish scrub brush 18. Hard dish scrubber with bronze metal bristles in the middle for scrubbing hard to remove things 19. Medium dish scrubber with softer bristles for scrubbing eggs and veggies ———————————————————————— #zerowastecleaning#earthweek#zerowaste#zerowastejourney#selfsufficient#sustainableliving#drbronners#springcleaning#makeityourself#makeyourown#healthyliving#zerowaste#plasticfree#sustainableliving#zerowastehome#zerowastelifestyle#zerowasteliving#zerowastelife#reduceyourplastic#sustainablelifestyle#reducereuserecycle#trashisfortossers#simpleliving#simplelife#slowlifestyle#farmishmomma
Products sold in glass and reusable jars are the best! If I have to choose between something sold in a plastic bottle versus glass, I choose glass. I can reuse the glass jar or bottle. When I collect too many jars, I bring them @nugrocery where they sterilize them and offer them to their clients in lieu of new mason jars. Reusing is more eco friendly than buying new, even where jars are concerned! I wish every store had a sterilizer so clients could bring their own jars. I do believe that just cleaning jars in warm, soapy water is sufficient, but in Gatineau a few weeks ago, a large grocery chain refused a lady’s personal jar saying they couldn’t guarantee that her jar was perfectly clean. If this is really a legal issue for the big grocery chains, then the purchase of a sterilizer would seem like a feasable option. Personally, I haven’t had difficulty using my own jars at local businesses. How about you? 💚 #glass#noplastics#plasticfree#reuse#nugrocery#zerowastelifestyle#zerodechet#zerowaste#environment#sustainable#sustainablelifestyle#masonjars#buyplasticfree
every single cup, container, fork, knife, spoon, straw, shampoo bottle, toothbrush, razor, bag, bottle, packaging...
p l a s t i c a n y t h i n g ... still exists on the planet today. one of the most durable lasting materials on the planet we have decided to use for all of our billions of disposable needs. could we be any more illogical and inefficient.
i recently started using my own zero waste toothpaste made from coconut oil, baking soda, & peppermint oil instead of buying toothpaste. to be completely honest, i hate the taste of it and i still cringe a little bit every time i use it. one of my friends said why don’t you just buy some toothpaste? and i was thinking, whyyy don’t i just buy a tube of toothpaste? then i thought some more... and every single tube of toothpaste i have ever consumed - say 50 tubes in my lifetime - 50 tubes are on this beautiful planet somewhere, whether in a landfill, in the environment, in our oceans, they’re somewhere. now multiply that by 7 billion people. so that’s why i choose to use my horrible tasting homemade toothpaste instead of easily buying a tube at the store.
we have choices in our lives, we are constantly making choices. i choose to live in coexistence with the rest of this natural world and i have a deep commitment to that choice. i am constantly challenging myself, trying to align my actions with my values and beliefs about this world.
how are you choosing to live a life you believe in?

Sustainability also means taking steps to protect human rights. This cotton elephant is handmade in Nepal by the Women’s Skills Development Organization. The women artisans working there face difficulties socially and financially and some come from families with abuse or are from marginalised casts. The WSDO pays them fair wages so they can become self-supportive and plan for their future 🌱
At My Fair Shop we love supporting this kind of initiative. For us, sustainability can be applied to earth, animals, and people, and we need to encourage more companies to think about how they produce their goods and how they treat their workers 💪🏼 The elephant is available at www.my-fair-shop.com - all profits go towards supporting these women and WSDO’s work. 💕 •
From our hands to yours, these pieces we’ve been making for the past 5 years have a purpose. The tactile quality is deliberate so you’ll be drawn to touch and feel the details. Then witness as they wear out beautifully for years, giving no reason to be discarded. Join our intimate talk as we share insights on how we’ve been reconnecting people’s appreciation for textiles through our product range, designing for diverse industries from cosmetics to hospitality and teaching fabric printing. ✨LAUNCH DAY SPECIAL✨ Register today and save a seat for 👭 at the fee of one. We’re keeping the session small and intimate for an effective dialogue. If you’re familiar with our classes and events, they always get sold out pretty quickly so don’t miss this chance!

From a time when American presidents were quoted for their inspiration instead of their idiocy. But I think Mr Jefferson had it right, attitude is [almost] everything. #mindset#mindsetiseverything#stateofmind
Le petit nouveau dans la famille 🌾 fait main, trouvé dans une boutique spécialisée dans le bois et le bambou depuis des générations, dans un quartier ancien de Taipei, pour 10€... comme quoi pas besoin d’aller très loin pour être dans la ‘ tendance ‘, suffit parfois de faire attention aux artisans autour de nous 😉😏
We very carefully track our spending and how we move towards our pre-defined Financial Independence goals. We earn in two different system and currencies, we live in one country but we travel a lot, so we spend in many currencies. Having our goals diversified between various currencies, investment systems, tax-deferred and post-tax investments is giving us that bit of certainty that the goals are “enough”. We do a system check of all of them each month. This month was very depressing... between huge chunk of taxes, car insurance, car inspection, house insurance and some other maintenance I ended up spending my whole salary so any portfolio increase is due to side hustles, hubby’s salary and portfolio growth. At the end of this year we will re-design the way we look at 401k and begin maxing it out to take as much as possible advantage of the tax discounts and reach that 100% goal shortly. When we started this path months ago, we realized that each purchase now we need to justify to ourselves: we know it will be visible on this curve as well as in the spending trackers. It really helped to minimize the urge, and spend according to our values. It is a zero waste, minimalistic budget. #financialindependence#fire#firecommunity#debtfreecommunity#retireearly#401k#spendmindfully#valuebasedspending#earlyretirement#sustainablelifestyle#sustainableliving#sustainability#trackyourprogress#progress#livelikenooneelse
