Essigmutter zerteilen, pflegen, aufbewahren und anfüttern geht ganz einfach. 🍷 Die Essigmutter kann leicht zerschnitten werden und je nach Bedarf gleich zur Essigherstellung oder in einem nicht luftdichtverschlossenem Glas mit Essig aufbewahrt werden. 🍷 Mehr Details auf meinem Blog 👉 Link in meinem Profil. 🍷 #zerowaste #aufdiehand #essigmutter #essig #selbermachen #aufdiehandblog #gegenlebensmittelverschwendung #zerowasteliving #zerowastelife #goingzerowaste #sustainability #sustainable #sustainableliving #nature #natürlich #öko #green #keinetütebitte #nofoil #noplastic #nomoreplastic #iquitplastics #nachhaltig #müllfrei
One of the first things I do when on an adventure is search out the local market. I so enjoy the experience of discovering new fruits & vegetables native to the land. Chatting and laughing with locals as I inquire about various dishes or peculiar produce. And one of my favourites, discovering natural packaging! Check out these delicious fresh nuts wrapped in a leaf bag! They were tied up with a stem! 😍 So inspiring. Soooo biodegradable! Travel is so good for the soul, so inspiring as i wander outside of my norm, exploring & learning, adopting & growing. I am a sponge! I so love this life of exploring. I love the challenge to skip & dance around plastics. So worth it when you learn to make a bag from leaves! 🌿🍃🍀🌱💚 thank you community also for sharing your tricks, tips, & recipes!! So very grateful 😍🙌🏽✨
When you're a BEAST at guesstimating bag to jar amounts. SO. SATIFYING. #spacialreasoning 👍🏻Also, made that bulk bag out of an old tank. 👌🏻Tutorial link in bio. #zerowaste #zerowastelife #zerowastehome #goingzerowaste #zerowasteoakland #bulkisbeautiful #bulk #redlentils #sustainable #diy #sproutsfarmersmarket #iquitplastics #greenlife #vegan

@summersite just published an interview about how I was born with seashell nipples & other fun facts about my strange salty life as a plastic free mermaid 💙 photo by the talented @anriellehunt playing with sustainable surfboard @woodsurfco
Fighting the good fight since my toes touched the island 💪🏽💙💦This photo was before a rally we held when I lived in Bondi in 2015. 💙We were successful in getting plastic bags banned from the Bondi Farmer's Market! They were quickly replaced with biodegradable plastic bags, & everyone thought they were saving the world. Unfortunately, bio bags will still choke a turtle. They are not a solution, though the intention is good. We as consumers have to avoid ALL disposable plastics, bio or oil-based. This is one reason NSW claims to not have banned plastic bags yet, because they don't want to simply replace plastic with bio bags. Fair enough, so just BAN THEM ALL THEN. Problem solved. You're welcome. 💙💙💙 #banthebag #banthebagnsw #banthebagaustralia
Loved this evening's @waronwasteau on @abctv 💙 I am used to the depressing stats on our extreme use of plastics, poor recycling efforts, inability of plastic to break down, & topic-dodging politicians like @gladys_berejiklian . I thought Craig did a fabulous job of finding the decision makers & posing these hard questions eye to eye. He also proposed many solutions, like the repair shops, soft plastics recycling centres making benches & walkways (that need more city & town council investing), & a stronger bag ban that goes into effect in QLD in 2018. This was most inspiring to me, the QLD ban was a result of letters & petitions--aka PEOPLE POWER! This ban is stronger than any other ban in Australia! Not allowing thin plastic bags to be replaced by thick plastic bags, not even allowing bio plastic bags! So motivated to help Gladys find her inner mermaid & ban plastic bags in NSW!! #banthebagnsw #banthebag #waronwasteau
Hope everyone is tuning in to @waronwasteau on @abctv ! Watch @timsilverwood teach Australia how to recycle 😍🙌🏽♻️ #solutions #waronwasteau #waronwaste
What if... we just decided to stop using single use plastics? Plastic rubbish would be minimised by 50% 🕺🏽 That's only four things you need to swap: coffee cups, plastic bags, straws & water bottles. I dare you to take on the challenge 💪🏽 #pollutionfreepeninsula
When you forget your #togo mug the least you can do is go #topless. Those pesky plastic tops are rarely recycled and do they really keep the heat in? How much plastic did you avoid today? Thanks @plasticfreemermaid for starting the #toplessforthesea campaign. If thinking about #boobs makes people waste less, I'm all about it. #iquitplastics #zerowaste #sustainable #oakland #coffee #recycle
#toplessforthesea is officially 1 year old! So grateful for the sisters who stood by me bare chested with this silly idea & the brave cafes who jumped on board! Happy to think we have saved some plastic lids from sliding into our precious sea. 🐚Seeking a mermaid to join my Topless Byron team to help manage cafes, mugs, & displays (volunteer 2 hours/week) if you are keen please email or pm me 🙏🏽😍 🐚Brainstorming ways to scale this little campaign for more towns & always welcome ideas, collaboration. 🐚Hosting a NEW MOON body melting sound yoga this Friday 6:30-8pm at Red Tent to celebrate 🐚AND ALSO A Topless Mermaid Tea Party this Saturday morning at a beach in Byron. Message me for details 😜☕️🌺 🐚Topless mermaids wearing amazing @solsoya surf yoga gear made from recycled plastics locally here in Australia! The best! #iquitplastics #wequitplastics

Tune in tomorrow night @waronwasteau // ABC 8.30pm Tuesday 💥 It's definitely opened our minds about waste disposal in Australia 🇦🇺
Where does plastic go when we throw it "away?" Most lightweight stuff blows, drifts, & floats its way to the sea. This is Blue Hole, Egypt taken by Freediving Champion @alexeymolchanov 💦 Our governments are acting too slowly or not at all, it is literally up to each of us to make better choices as consumers. If you find yourself with plastic, make sure you don't just throw it away; get it to a recycling center or find another use for it at home! We are the ones we've been waiting for. 💙🙌🏽🐬💦
Tiny #zerowaste win in #vegas, the land of single use shit. They ran outta wrist bands so we got stamps. Cus what even are those things made out of? Also, #drag brunch. Yes. #iquitplastics #lesswasted

Mind blown 💥 50% is a huge amount and the power of choice is always yours #powertothepeople 💪🏽 Buy a @keepcup or sip your caffeine in the cafe ☕️ A reusable water bottle like @earthbottles or @swellbottle (you'll save a bunch of money too) 💦 Say no to straws or carry your own @cleancoastcollective @simplystraws 🍧 Say no to plastic bags and BYO 💡 Small changes, massive impact 🌿
1/2 the world's turtles already have plastic in their little bellies, if they've survived the stuff passing through their tiny throat😞(stat from @waronwasteau ) We can do better. Buy less, buy old, buy recycled plastic...like this sun proof surf turtle neck by @saltgypsy 🌞🐢keeps the turtles & your precious neck safe too💛💛💛💛💛 #whomademyclothes photo by @celiagalpinphotography
Everyone loves a juice fast or the cayenne lemon master cleanse, but is that really good for us if we are active, high functioning humans out to change the world? It can be depleting, & particularly in winter, can cause more harm to our already chilled bods that really need warm, nourishing foods. I am a humble student of Ayurveda where my understanding of health has expanded to nurture body, mind, soul, & emotions with delicious spiced foods, lifestyle changes, & simple herbs to stay balanced. (And happy!!) Kitchari is a simple soupy porridge that consists of rice, dhal, & spices. It is warm & grounding. It slides through your digestive system nourishing tissues, giving you vital energy, moistening your insides, & removing any stuck toxins on it's way out. The spices make it so yum, I always so look forward to my cleanse! I usually make a big pot in the morning for each day or store it in the fridge (Tupperware is reusable! Or Pyrex is glass! Or stainless steel!) to heat up on the stove with fresh oil & spices at each meal. Check out my reusable storage containers for all ingredients! Buying bulk is ze way. I aim to cleanse 5-7 days, always eating when hungry, shrinking my portions meal by meal as I check in with what my body truly needs. 🌿✨💛 recipe: iquitplastics.com/blog/kitchari-cleanse
When I first started this project I was anxious to ask places to use my own containers. But sure enough, no one gives a fuck! It takes half a second of extra planning and it's so satisfying to avoid the unnecessary plastic. Try it. Side a cream cheese please. Thanks @beautysbagel. #zerowaste #bagel #iquitplastics #zerowastebreakfast #bringyourown #sustainable #oakland
Do you have a compost? 🌿 Over half of the landfill on the Mornington Peninsula could be composted. 🤦🏽‍♀️ 90% of greenhouse gas emissions from landfill is from your food waste. ⚡️ How cool is it that you can make a significant difference, starting today. 💡
Whats your ditch list and which one catches you out? I keep forgetting to insist "no straw" whenever ordering a drink. Small changes, big impact, less plastic. #plastic #plasticfreeforthesea #iquitplastics #banthebottle #banthebag #plasticfreekenya #solutionsforlife
We're the first to admit, we haven't always been as waste conscious in life as we are today ~ always committed to recycling and minimising unnecessary plastics ~ it's been thanks to friends like @plasticfreemermaid that our eyes have truly been opened to just how much we really can reduce our footprint on the earth by switching and ditching all the disposable plastics in our lives #iquitplastics

Zero waste fail 😣 Da läuft man den ganzen Arbeitstag mit seiner Metallbox rum und lässt die dann aber aus reiner Faulheit daheim stehen, um abends die kleine Tasche nehmen zu können. Der Abendplan ändert sich spontan und es gibt an einem Stand Burger ohne "to stay"-Option. Und schwuppdiwupps hat man Styropor auf der Hand, anstatt zum Deckel der eigenen Dose zu greifen. 😣 Ja mei... Dafür hab ich den ganzen Tag sonst keinen Restmüll und sondern nur Kompost produziert. Und ich tröste mich damit, dass die Jungs am Grill die to go Boxen wenigstens halbiert haben, anstatt sie verschließbar zu lassen. 😏 #zerowaste #aufdiehand #zerowastefail #styropor #burger #trotzdemlecker #flexitarier #aufdiehandblog #gegenlebensmittelverschwendung #zerowasteliving #zerowastelife #goingzerowaste #sustainability #sustainable #sustainableliving #nature #natürlich #öko #green #keinetütebitte #nofoil #noplastic #nomoreplastic #iquitplastics #nachhaltig #müllfrei

Love this throwback from early @save_the_mermaids campaigning days with @kaiamermaid 💙💙💙when big government & big corporate won't budge, we go local with all we've got! We had sparkles, smiles, & statistics! 👊🏽🐚💙🐬 #banthebag
when you need to look fresh, but don't have the time...make your own natural, plastic free "dry shampoo" from an astringent powder, such as arrowroot powder or corn starch. Lightly massage into scalp & through hair to absorb excess oils. I used to use baby powder, which has mostly corn starch. So I am just simplifying & taking out the little plastic bottle. Do find the shower as soon as possible, because i have seen recipes for play dough with these powders + oils! 🙊 This is just a quick fix. You can imagine the longer it sits on your head, the more it mixes with your natural hair oils. YUM! 💁🏼
buy bulk, recycle spice jars, rise above the system 👊🏽🐬 #iquitplastics #plasticfreemermaid
Nothing quite as depressing as walking into a conference room full of "handy" water bottles 😣be the change, bring your own and reduce plastic use #plasicfreeforthesea #bethechange #toplessforthesea #plastic #banthebottle #iquitplastics #water #plasticfreemermaid
• GO TOPLESS • That daily coffee in a take-away cup? It's not recyclable. Ask for no lid. One quarter of your waste ends up in the ocean. Fish eat it. Then you eat the fish. That's not our cup of tea ✋🏽
You know those balloons you had at your two year old birthday party? 🎈 Well... they are going to outlive you, and your great great great great great great great great grandchildren. #ohfuck
FACT: Australians generate around 13,888 tonnes (the weight of 925 trucks!!) of plastic litter per year and about one quarter ends up in the ocean... 🚬💧

dirty ocean? Call me on my shell phone ! 🐚🐚🐚 the shells of the sea.", a portal to her sounds, when mama sea needs a clean up she sends the signal round. A ripple through the shells & she calls her sirens in, they grow legs close to shore to guide the humans to the bin. Untangle any birdies, pick up discarded bags. When they sing their sweet reminders, no one thinks of them as nags. The mermaids have a mission, as they smile & they flirt. Despite oft distracted, dancing through fields, admiring trees and dirt. But if you look quite closely there is fire in their eyes, for their mighty task is to help man prevent the sea's demise. With wit and charm they are sent to the land, to help man know the worth of nature, from the mountains to sand. Their's a tremendous task, the daughters of the sea. They bear the power of the vast, sweet voice of truth, magic of mystery. The courageous sirens will not let us down. All it takes is one believer in the unbelievable to turn it all around. 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 # #believe #bethechange #iquitplastics
Gratis Waschmittel in Sekunden "herstellen" und die Wäsche damit öko waschen geht mit Efeu. 🌿 Einfach 20 - 30 Blätter in einem Wäschesäckchen oder einer zugeknoteten Socke mit in die Trommel geben. Um die Saponine von Efeu als Flüssigwaschmittel zu nutzen, kannst du die Blätter mit etwa 300ml Wasser aufgießen, ein paar Stunden/über Nacht stehen lassen und dann ohne die Blätter ins Waschmittelfach gießen. 🌿 Weitere Details und wieso das funktioniert, kannst du auf meinem Blog nachlesen. 👉 Link auf meinem Profil 🌿 #zerowaste #aufdiehand #wäschewaschen #efeu #gratis #waschmittel #aufdiehandblog #gegenlebensmittelverschwendung #zerowasteliving #zerowastelife #goingzerowaste #sustainability #sustainable #sustainableliving #nature #natürlich #öko #green #keinetütebitte #nofoil #noplastic #nomoreplastic #iquitplastics #nachhaltig #müllfrei

Radieschen vom eigenen Balkon 🌱 Habe sie vor einigen Wochen in einen Blumenkasten gepflanzt und es hat etwas länger gedauert als bei den Samen angegeben. Das lag wohl an der Kälte, denn April und Anfang Mai waren im München nicht sonderlich angenehm. 🌱 Einige der Radieschen strecken schon die Köpfchen aus der Erde, andere lasse ich noch ein paar Tage zum Weiterwachsen drin. Diese französische Sorte bleibt länglich und unten weiß und wird nicht zu runden, pinken Kugeln. 🌱 #zerowaste #aufdiehand #balkongarten #selbstversorger #radieschen #blumenkasten #soschönpink #aufdiehandblog #gegenlebensmittelverschwendung #zerowasteliving #zerowastelife #goingzerowaste #sustainability #sustainable #sustainableliving #nature #natürlich #öko #green #keinetütebitte #nofoil #noplastic #nomoreplastic #iquitplastics #nachhaltig #müllfrei
I've been buying this @100percentpure #mascara for a couple years now, but only this week did I learn about their recycling program. Thanks @thewildminimalist !! If you bring back your empty products they will recycle them properly and give you a punch on this reward card. With enough punches you get some free shit!! Sign me up! I love the idea of companies taking responsibility for their customers waste.

I avoid plastic wrapped candy by makin my own. WHAT UP. I am not innately kitchen savvy, but when I moved to Byron Bay @claresull whipped up a batch of chocolate that blew my mind. She is still a rare bird of conscious earth loving magic, but it turns out the recipe is a breeze! Simply melt 1 cup of Cacao butter (either in a pot on super low heat or double boil), then add approx 7 (heaping? 🙊) tbsp Cacao powder, stir. Add in 3-4 tbsp honey or maple syrup depending on how bitter or sweet you like your chocy. Pour this into a baking paper lined tray or a silicone baking pan or some container that you will be able to pop out the chocolate from. You can stop here, or get fancy and add sea salt and roasted nuts, coconut flakes, dried fruit, pumpkin seeds, apparently fresh passion fruit is good too! I have not tried this yet. What do you add? Then put in freezer to set. It will melt out of the freezer, so serve immediately for crunchy bites! 😍🍫❤️ #flatlay #noafterpictho #doesntlastlong

Last week I was able to watch "Plastic China" at #sfgreenfest. And jeez. Did you know #china receives 10 million tons of plastic waste from developed countries each year? I did not. It is sent to plastic recycling workshops like the one Yi-Jie and her family live in. Unfortunately, there are no signs of health codes or regulations for these factories/homes, so we watch the family eat, sleep, breath and play in piles of our plastic waste. The movie was incredibly difficult to watch as you may imagine. But then again, no, I'm sure you can't actually imagine it. So I urge everyone to catch this film or at least research a bit about where your plastic waste ends up. We may pat ourselves on the back about separating and sorting our waste but that's not the end of it. Next time you buy a coffee or do a grocery shop consider the amount of packaging you are taking in and funneling through to workshops like Yi-Jie's. For me, it's been about 4 months since #iquitplastics and though at times it makes things more difficult, there are some things you can't un-learn. #plasticisforever #recyclingisntenough #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #goingzerowaste #saynotoplastic #refusethestraw #documentary #bringyourown #sustainable

It's certainly been a while since I've let my hair down! Been committed to Ayurvedic living, early morning meditation, yoga, Abhyanga (non-sexual self body massage with grounding sesame oil). 4 months of sobriety & discipline felt beautiful, but I was ready to have a piña colada with my pals. So grateful for the gorgeous gals who hosted that took care to collect heaps of fun glassware from an opshop to avoid plastic cups! We blended fresh pineapples, coco milk & rum for delicious, plastic free cocktails. It takes a bit more time & thought, but it made the extravaganza "classier" & there was less trash to clean up! I was a very happy mermaid. 💕Thank goodness for the ocean recovery swim the following morning!!🌊💙

Does anyone else find that when you try to #bringyourown people often do strange things to accommodate or make it easier for you? Like the bakery sticking the price sticker on a piece of parchment and not right on my tin. I guess they're trying to be considerate but now I've used this completely unnecessary piece of paper that I have to throw away! I've also had baristas say they'll pour something into a plastic cup and THEN into my mug...but why? Attempting #zerowaste really makes you think about the strange habits and comforts that exist in our world. Now I know for next time to catch the price sticker before it's stuck? #lesswasted #zerowastestruggles #iquitplastics #plasticfree #eco #wholefoods #cupcakes

taught @future_dreamers a few recipes to un-plastic their bathrooms! we made toothpaste, deodorant, & a coffee face scrub. Super simple, with only 2-3 ingredients per recipe!
