Put a hole in your paper bag? Damn! We like to use the broken bags as liners for cakes etc, then after that use them to start the fire 💡 #zerowaste #zerowastehome #iquitplastics #pollutionfree #trashisfortossers
It's still summer so it's still fine for me to drink sangria on my porch every night, right??? (Featuring ice from the most beautiful metal ice tray from @thezeromarket!) #zerowaste #zerowastehome #zerowastelife #trashisfortossers #iquitplastics #plasticfree #plasticsucks
Morgen darf ich in einer Klasse der Schulabschluss-Lehrgänge der Münchner Volkshochschule meine geplanten Projekttage vorstellen. 💁🌊 Zwei Tage lang werden wir Ende September über "Wasser als globales Gut" sprechen und uns mit nachhaltigem Konsum für junge Erwachsene beschäftigen - und das im wunderschönen Seminarhaus Buchenried der MVHS am Starnberger See. 🏞⛴ 💁🌊 Als Einstieg hab ich heute ein Quiz zu Wasser zusammengestellt und natürlich ein paar Infos zu den Projekttagen. Ausgedruckt wird nix, alles digital! 🚫🚮 💁🌊 Ich bin mega stolz, dass ich durch meinen Blog inzwischen Jobs angeboten bekomme und jetzt Dozentin an der Münchner Volkshochschule sein darf. 😍 Danke für das Vertrauen und das Interesse! 💚 💁🌊 #zerowaste #aufdiehand #workworkwork #projekttag #wasser #wasseralsglobalesgut #münchnervolkshochschule #mvhs #vhs #dozentin #aufdiehandblog #sustainability #sustainable #nature #natürlich #öko #green #keinetütebitte #banthebag #nofoil #noplastic #plasticfree #nomoreplastic #breakfreefromplastic #iquitplastics #nachhaltig #müllfrei #trashisfortossers #bethechange #ourplanetourhome

When you're gonna be gone for 2 months so you stock the freezer with #vegan #macandcheese so your girlfriend, who doesn't cook, doesn't have to visit the #traderjoes freezer aisle. Shout out to #españa for all my cute Cazuelas. And, shout out to my mom who taught me to always make too much 😘 #zerowaste #zerowastehome #lesswaste #mealprep #freezermeals #iquitplastics #zerowasteLA Recipe is the butternut squash cheese sauce from the latest @vegnews 👍🏻
All meine Schnappgläser habe ich von meinen Großeltern. In ihrem Keller stehen sie ungenutzt und verstaubt seit Jahren im Regal. Früher haben sie darin Früchte in Alkohol eingelegt oder Gemüse eingekocht. Schade genug, dass sie das heute nicht mehr machen. Dafür freut sich meine Oma immer, wenn ich meinen Rucksack mit ihren "nutzlosen" Gläsern vollstopfe. 😉 Nutzlos... Pah!! Damit kaufe ich unverpackt im @ohne_laden ein, beware alles in der Speisekammmer auf, nehme to go Essen mit und und und. 😉 Diese Gläser sind neu außerdem garnicht so günstig und so zahle ich nichts dafür. Oma ist froh, dass sie die Staubfänger los hat und dafür sieht meine Küche wie eine hippe Pinterest-Küche aus. Oh yeah! 😉 #zerowaste #aufdiehand #crazyjarlady #schnappglas #reuse #unverpackt #secondhand #dankeoma #aufdiehandblog #sustainability #sustainable #nature #natürlich #öko #green #keinetütebitte #banthebag #nofoil #noplastic #plasticfree #nomoreplastic #breakfreefromplastic #iquitplastics #nachhaltig #müllfrei #trashisfortossers #bethechange #ourplanetourhome
I was reading the Guardian Weekly over the weekend and the front page article discussed the implications of widespread plastic pollution in our tap water. According to a new study, most of the world's tap water contains plastic, yuck right? Tap water samples from around the world were analysed by scientists for an investigation by Orb Media. 83% of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.Microscopic fragments can enter the water system in multiple ways, from the fibers on synthetic clothing to tyre dust and microbeads, as well as the fragmenting of larger pieces of plastic. With about 300 million tons of plastic produced annually, its time to stop thinking with a convenient mindset and start making changes to our everyday lives. Say no to single use plastics or you may just end up drinking them! #iquitplastics #WA #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #perth #zerowaste #wastefree #plasticpollution #waronwasteau #banthebag #banthebagwa #banthebagaustralia #waronwaste #oceanpollution #oceanconservation #plasticpollutes #noplastic #stopsucking #unwrappedthestore #wastefreeliving #singleuseplastic

When your heart's full of colours but they're all shades of blue 🙏🏽💙✨Today, today... such a magic day with these beautiful, wonderful, inspiring women 🦋 We created some pretty amazing crafts together, from the blank canvas of natural textiles and glass jars transformed into works of indigo art, sustainable beeswax wraps, & hand~made native flora body scrub 🙌🏽🌿 Something new, fresh and from the Earth, good company and positive vibes 🌊 So proud of my sister Kate @plasticfreemermaid for sharing her first workshop in Byron with me, and gifting us her knowledge around plastic-free living choices 🌱. 👉🏽We are planting the seed for future collaborations so keep an eye out for this workshop coming again in Summer! ☀️🐬💋 A huge thank you to the incredible women that came together to make today so special!! #indigo #shibori #plasticfree #iquitplastics #sustainable #organic #byronbay
Day 14: #iquitplastics #noplastic required me to explore easy ways to switch to local groceries and buying only what I can eat ( since food is not prepackaged). This is the best way I have found to cook and create as less waste as possible. Choosing local grocers, carrying my own cloth bags or trying #hellofreshau has helped me in easy transitions. #angelhairpasta #foodporn
Bringing your own, may create one more dish for you to wash, but prevents one more plastic item for the earth to cough around for 1,000 years. 💚🌿 Happy to do my part! #iquitplastics
💚 💦 ♻️ 🌍 :: N E W S :: A new research by Orb Media tested 159 samples of tap water from more than a dozen countries around the world and results show billions of people globally are drinking water contaminated by plastic particles, with 83% of samples found to be polluted. The US had the highest contamination rate, at 94%. Lebanon and India had the next highest rates. Europe had 72% of samples contaminated. This changes the scientific perception of previous work that has been largely focusing on plastic pollution in the oceans, which suggested people are eating microplastics via contaminated seafood. Now it's clear we are drinking contaminated water. That's not all: studies in Germany found fibres and fragments in 24 beer brands, as well as in honey and sugar. Food for thought (pun intended).
This Sunday, the lovely @plasticfreemermaid and I will be collaborating on a special workshop together at home in Byron Bay 🙌🏽💙🌿 We will create inspiring crafts with all natural ingredients to live lightly & luxuriously on this beautiful, bountiful planet of ours. It’s going to be a really special day with women, meditating, discussing, sharing, creating, inspiring each other, & connecting. We will eat yummy Ayurvedic foods and leave with a bundle of one of a kind crafts to remind you of your intentions for your life & this world. If you are interested in joining us, follow the link in our story or send us a message . Looking forward to seeing all of you amazing women there 😘 💙💙💙 p: @lianacornell #indigo #shibori #diyworkshop #byronbay #organic #naturaldye #plantdye #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #iquitplastics #plasticfree
