I ordered a safety razor on eBay a while ago. It finally arrived! Excited and scared to try it out 😂 But I’m glad that I don’t have to produce more plastic with regular disposable razors. ♻️👍🏼
reusables // hey kids! man, has this week (or month!) been a hectic one. 🙇🏻‍♀️ which means I have been stress eating more than usual (and only kind of mad about it... 🍞🧀) but I’m ✨SUPER excited✨ to finally be using these reusable plastic bags from @fullcirclehomellc. they’re super durable, leak proof (even though I currently only have a block of cheese and leftover bacon slices in them 🥓🥓🥓) and can even be thrown in the dishwasher. I’ve never used reusable “ziplocs” before so I’m super giddy about these. saves me from going through flimsy plastic baggies and cling wrap! 🙌🏼🌱 #everystepcounts
Breakfast is my biggest & most yummy meal of the day 😊 I find if I start my day off right, generally I eat well for the rest of the day - easiest way to make sure this happens is to do a massive cook up every few days like I did this morning 😊 #zerowasteliving #zerowaste #zerowastelife #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastefamily #zerowastejourney #zerowastekitchen #zerowasteshopping #zerowastegroceries #zerowastevegan #veganlife #veganlifestyle #vegetables #fresh #thereisnoplanetb #motherearth #plasticfree #packagefree
The biggest shopping days of the year are just a few days away, and we'll be offering some awesome deals in store on Friday, and online on Monday. Want to be the first to know what the deals are? Make sure to get on our email list either by signing up through the link in our story, or at the bottom of the homepage on packagefreeshop.com. And though we love a good deal as much as the next person, we also hate unnecessary spending and buying items that will just end up in a landfill, so here are a few tips to remember when shopping on #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday. // 1) Don't feel like you have to accept a "free gift with purchase" or "doorbuster" item if you truly don't need or want it. 2) If you're going out shopping, bring your own reusable bags, a filled reusable water bottle and pack some snacks if you'll be out for awhile so you don't end up using a plastic, buying a water bottle or food in non-recyclable packaging. 3) Support sustainable businesses or businesses that you know ship plastic free (*cough* we do, *cough*). 4) Plan ahead - have a list of items you need/could use and DON'T veer off of it. It will keep you from making unnecessary impulse buys just because they're cheap. #packagefree #zerowasteholidays #zerowaste

Another #zerowaste shopping day in Hamburg. I try to buy most of my vegetables and fruits #unpackaged. For that I go to an turkish grocery or to an supermarket and pick up just the unpacked ones. I transport the small ones, e.g. the small tomatoes in my #naturtasche cotton bag. Bags like that are definitely on my #zerowasteessentials list. The other ones I just put in my #resack bag or in a other #resuable bag out of #cotton or #jute. The #naturtasche bag I bought at #twelvemonkeys in Hamburg. #packagefree #plasticfree #plasticfree #zerowaste #asmuchasyouneed #bulk #bulkfoods #noplastic #yummie #reducereuserecycle #sustainable #ecofriendly #withoutplastic #sosowithoutplastic #hamburg #bag #cottonbag #zerowasteessentials

this is basically what my lunches have been looking like lately. tons of greens, roasted veg, spicy tofu & homemade sunflower dressing. so easy & delicious! 🌿 what have you been loving for meals lately? ✨
My boi is gonna have the smoothest face thanks to @albatross_sailing and @packagefreeshop! Previously he was using Dollar Shave Club, but in order to reduce plastic waste I got him an electric razor which doesn’t get a very close shave unfortunately. But now with this safety razor the only waste that’s produced is the blades every now and then (and you can even mail them back to the company for recycling ♻️) I don’t shave, but this lil razor right here kinda makes me wish I did 😂 What do you do with your body hair? Have you taken any steps toward reducing your shaving waste?
Zero waste can be hard. I’m lucky to have so many stores to choose from, and even then, it’s really hard (but it does get easier). Well done to everyone making that little extra effort, changing 5 mins of your day, or just being conscious of where to improve. You’re on a path to an eco-centric life. You’re doing great. . . Last weekend, I embarked on a zero waste adventure to get all the treats. I ventured to a progressive little hub of shops in Melbourne and didn’t buy everything I intended to get. . . 💚 Succeeded in getting kombucha, peanut butter, honey, chocolate coated macadamias and veggie chips from @thesourcefitzroy. One paper bag was sacrificed for the sake of deliciousness. . 💔Failed to get cheese from @thecraftandco due to a change in their practises. . 😑 Shied away from getting tortellini from @pastaclassica due to previously grumpy service (see old post #zoebuyspasta203). . . 😴 Accidentally forgot to get a loaf of bread from @babkabakers due to me reaching peak limit of grocery shopping and wanting to go home. . . Didn’t get everything but the treats I did get were phenomenal 👌🏼 . #zerowaste #ecofriendly #ecocentric #environmentalsustainability #wecandothis #youredoinggreat #goyou #packagefree #waronwaste
Doing some prep for a low waste Thanksgiving meal tomorrow! Storing chopped veggies in glass jars and labeling with a wax pencil. This is our first big holiday at home since moving towards a #zerowastelifestyle last spring, and there are definitely some growing pains. We will produce a few pieces of landfill-bound trash, which I’ll share tomorrow, but even so this year’s spread is by FAR a more sustainable, local, #wasteless holiday experience. What traditions have you adapted to be more #zerowaste friendly?? 🍂🍁🍂
