🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “best hair care bars yet! i’ve been using bar shampoo for about a year, and have tried 4 different brands before learning about the zero waste store. i was super excited to see their line of hair care products and decided to try a set of shampoo & conditioner, even though the last conditioner bar i tried from another company did not work very well. i am so happy i decided to try these out! i can’t remember the last time my hair looked this good or felt so soft! even my dad has commented on the change! i’m so in love with these products; i’ll never try another brand again.” ✨

Sharing the good news! repost @simply.living.well with permission 💚 #zerowastecollective ・・・
over the past couple of years, i’ve shared my love of books and libraries on many occasions. today, i’m delighted to share with you my first book, simply living well, which comes out april 7 in the united states, australia, canada, germany, the netherlands, the uk, russia, and new zealand. i owe a big thank you to this community for your support and another one to houghton mifflin harcourt for turning my words and photos into this beautiful book.
as for what’s inside, i like to think of it as a book your grandmother could have written. chockfull of tips, recipes, remedies, and diys, it shares tried and true ways to reduce waste and live more simply, slowly, and naturally in every area of the home – kitchen, wellness, cleaning, bath, and garden. my hope is that what i’ve written will serve as a bridge between the can-do ethos of generations past and the earth-conscious mindfulness many of us seek to bring into our lives and homes today.
although publication day is still two months away, if you’re a resident of the u.s., canada, australia, new zealand, or the u.k., and you preorder the book, you’ll also receive an exclusive ebook with a handful of extra diys and recipes. simply preorder the book from your favorite online retailer by 11:59 pm est on april 06, 2020 and enter your receipt # and contact information in the form at the bottom of my book launch page (linked). if you aren’t sure where to order, there’s also a smart link on the book launch page that will direct you to your nearest online retailer. a few small businesses will also have it stocked soon, so keep a look out at shops like @helenmilanhome, @junehomesupply, and @heritagegoodsandsupply. •
thank you again for being here. i appreciate every single one of you. if you have any questions, please feel free to ask - i’ll do my best to answer all of them. ♥️

Keep your waste low by sustaining your flow 🌸 making the transition to a low waste period saves you money (over $150-$300 per year), saves plastic from entering the environment, and chemicals from entering your body.
did you know that cotton is the most pesticide-intensive crop grown on the planet? when using disposable menstrual products, these chemicals are easily absorbed into your body😳
making the switch is healthier for you & our planet 🌎 you can use one of our wet bags to store them in while on-the-go and hand wash or put in your washer!
p.s- they are also available in black 🌚

What my kitchen sink looks like ✨ i love using our dish block for tougher grease and grime with a p*t scrubber and the liquid dish soap (now in an aluminum bottle) for everyday dishes. i pair our soaps with a loofah, sponge cloth, and also a few fav brushes! peep the flf i’m propagating above 🌱
Bye bye gorgeous lamp!⠀
packaged up this beauty at the weekend and sent it off to it's new home in spain. lucky thing. ⠀
as with most things in my life, i don't do new, or if i do i will consciously buy things that are made using sustainable and ethical materials. and the same goes for what i use to package up my items being sent by post or ones that need wrapping for international shipping. for these i package them in re-used (as in boxes, bubble wrap, shredded paper that i've had parcels delivered in), recyclable or biodegradable packaging. 💚⠀

This is pod, like many of our friends, sustainability wasn't necessarily at the forefront of his mind, it still isn't, but this is ok. 👌⠀
by making small changes, carrying a reusable bottle, using sustainable straws, he hasn't had to completely change the way he lives. ♻️⠀
making small actionable changes are where it starts. trying to drastically change every aspect of your life is, for lack of a better word, unsustainable. nobody likes that word. ❌⠀
3 months in with 2 people using them and our earth bars still have plenty of life 🙌🏼 keep them stored on a soap lift or soap dish away from running water and they will last 50-90 washes ✨ when your bars start breaking into scraps, add them into one of our soap saver bags or into a spray bottle with water for liquid shampoo & conditioner🌿
When sian watched a video posted by boomtown festival last year interviewing the farmer from the matterley estate, explaining how he collected thousands of spent nos gas canisters every year and couldn’t recycle them, she knew she had to get in touch! fast forward 9 months and we have a little green fiesta packed full of ‘useless’ silver canisters. she’s going to reuse them instead of gravel in sandbags to make weights for her fleece and nets in the market garden. #reusereducerecycle#choosetoreuse#boomtown#festivallife#sustainableliving#smallisbeautiful

Where does our data (images, videos, music) end up when we store them in the cloud ☁️ ? this is a question we should all ask ourselves, because even if they aren't physical, the files have to be saved 🗄 somewhere.
this is a service offered by companies that have huge servers for data storage. these are huge rooms full of these machines that work 24 hours a day all year round.
the problem is that these devices are very polluting, in fact they require robust air conditioning systems to maintain the right temperature and not overheat.
deleting unnecessary files ❌ will reduce the storage space needed and consequently the amount of servers will stop increasing exponentially.
are all the data stored in your cloud indispensable? 💻

Beeswax is heat sensitive, so the more you warm it with your hands, the softer and more sticky it will get! 🐝 when the wraps are brand new (or it’s an extra chilly day in the kitchen) we always recommend holding the wrap in your hands for a few moments to activate the beeswax. #forgetplastic

Made some infused water because a) why not, b) it looks pretty and c) we needed some vitamins because it’s winter and vitamin c? we don’t know her. all this to say that i reused this large kombucha bottle to keep as an infuser bottle and that you don’t need to go and buy a whole new one just to chase an aesthetic. the internet makes you think you need new products but the truth is, we already have perfectly good solutions at home or in your shopping cart that can be reused #reusereducerecycle

What a lineup!! 🎶 i am more excited than ever for coachella 2020 and all of the music and fashion inspiration that pours out of palm springs for two weeks. 🌴 #ad however, one of the most inspiring things that the festival has done this year was making the big decision to completely eliminate the sale of all disposable plastic water bottles to eliminate the 2 million disposable plastic bottles that would otherwise be used.💧to keep hundreds of thousands of festival goers hydrated and living their absolutely best lives, @gocontigo developed the greatest reusable travel bottle ever with their autoseal technology to ensure a complete spill/leak proof water bottle experience, all day every day. 💦 it features one-handed opening for being on the go, and has a built in handle for carrying or hanging from your bag. when you’re done hydrating, fill it back up at the free contigo water stations and flip down the spout cover to help protect the mouthpiece from the dirt and germs of the desert. it will be your go-to bottle all year long. believe me! 🙌🏼
my favorite part? every piece is top-rack dishwasher safe! *happy dance!* luckily you don’t have to wait and fly to cali to get your hands on one - you can already grab it now on gocontigo.com ☀️ #choosetoreuse this festival season with contigo. #gocontigo#coachellaxcontigo .

Are you a wishful or aspirational recycler? when you have some questionable packaging that you think should be recyclable, but you’re not sure, do you throw it into your curbside blue bin with hope in your 💚 heart? i don’t want to squash your optimism, but you are probably doing more harm than good. when unrecyclable things end up in our recycling sort systems, they contaminate the whole batch, causing recyclable items to be thrown into the landfill. these contaminants can also injure employees and damage machinery.
portland metro has a fun “recycle or not” ( @recycleornot ) campaign to help you be a better recycler. google “portland metro recycle or not” and take their online quiz to find out how much of a wishful recycler you may or may not be. and remember, when in doubt, throw it out – or just give metro’s super knowledgeable, master recycler hotline folks a ring. it just takes a moment to get the info you need! email@example.com or
for small metal items like metal caps and wire, squash them up together in a clean bit of tinfoil or crimp them in a tin can so they don’t get lost in the sorting or jam a machine. ♻️ don’t be trashy: #reducereuserecycle

This is an easy one keep some cups with your reusable bags in the car. if you forget your cup skip the coffee stick to the plan and before you know it you are making a lifestyle change for the better.posted @withregram • @going.zero.waste it's just one cup.⠀
for a week⠀
for 30 days⠀
for a year⠀
a friendly reminder that it all adds up! ⠀
yes, bringing your own cup to the coffee shop might not feel like you're making a "huge difference." ⠀
but, over time it amounts to an astronomical amount of waste. ⠀
small actions done by 1,000s of people adds up to a huge impact. don't let anyone make you feel like what you're doing doesn't matter because it is so important. ⠀
citizens must act so businesses and policy can react. never forget that it starts with individual action. it all starts with you. ❤️ ⠀
so, what's your preferred reusable at the cafe a thermos, mason jar, ceramic coffee cup, or water bottle? ⠀
i'm more of a water bottle girl myself. ⠀

Did you know that only 0.25% of single use coffee cups are recycled? single use coffee cup lids are not widely recyclable due to difficulty and/or cost. single use coffee cups themselves are not widely recyclable. only 3 plants in the uk can separate out the inner plastic lining from the paper outer. you need to have a separate bin just for single use coffee cups and a supply chain to get them to the correct recycling plant. a dedicated recycling bin at a coffee shop is not much use for a takeaway coffee... taking your reusable cup is so much better. better for the planet. better to look at. better for you wallet in a lot of places! overall a much nicer experience. make your takeaway coffee a little greener!

Believe me, if i can make my own beeswax food wraps, you can too.
i love having a few of these on hand to use instead of plastic wrap. yes, i still keep a roll of plastic wrap in the kitchen drawer, but i can’t even remember the last time we had to use it. even the kids have gotten used to covering bowls, pies, and other foods with our homemade beeswax wraps.
by now you’re probably curious about how to make your own beeswax wraps, and i have fun news: lisa from @farmhouseonboone provides simple instructions (and gorgeous photos) in her brand new book simple farmhouse life. even better news: you could win a copy of her book just by leaving a comment and tagging a friend, but not here. scroll back a few squares to the giveaway post and enter over there. packed with real food recipes, essential oil recipes, simple diy projects, and beautiful photography, you’re going to love this book!
i’m curious: have you tried beeswax wraps, either purchased or homemade?

Szacuje się, że bawełniana torba dopiero po 131-krotnym użyciu będzie miała na środowisko taki sam wpływ jak jednorazówka z tworzyw sztucznych poddana recyklingowi lub spalaniu😎 czy aby na pewno "dopiero"? 🤔przecież to Żaden problem!💪 materiałowa siatka może być z powodzeniem wykorzystywana latami – z pewnością ponad 131 razy. dlatego to nasz pierwszy wybór💚 jak jest u was❓
this bread features in my stories quite a bit + i keep saying i'll share this simple recipe but never do. the reason i haven't shared it yet is daft, its because i cook in the evening and the lighting isn't brilliant for capturing a great shot! sharing is caring + if this will inspire a few people to make their own gb + not buy it in plastic, well, that's what my pg is all about. so, today is the day for sharing this utterly delicious, eeeeasy to make- gb - even with a not so brilliant 📸 .
i found this recipe online - recipiestineats.com - man, it is so ridiculouly good 🌟 i don't stick to the script mind! i don't use foil to wrap it in, crisps up just fine without it. i use a lot more butter than what the recipe uses, i don't measure tho, u just know. so use the recipe as a guide + add more or less. i add more crushed garlic + i double the amounts if i make 2 gb. i use dried parsley that comes in glass with a metal lid + sprinkle more parsley on the top! . . 🥖🥖🥖ingredients: 🥖1) baguette - bulk bought, homemade - whatever.
🥖) 125grams softened butter of choice or vegetable spread. 🥖) 1 clove of garlic, chopped then minced 🥖) touch of salt - ground rock salt 🥖) 2 tsps or more parsley . . 🥖🥖🥖make:
preheat the oven + a baking sheet to 200c
cut the baguette up into pieces but don't cut all the way through. mix up all the ingredients + taste to see if it is to your liking. smear the butter in-between the slices. smear some more butter on top + sprinkle more parsley on top of that. place on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes or more, until golden brown + crispy. once you've made this, you'll never go back to store-bought!! .
enjoy! im hungry after writing about this! 🥖😁

cappotto #vintage donna color bisque, con composizione di 60% lana e 40% poliestere.
oltre ad essere un masterpiece che ritorna sempre utile averlo nell'armadio, le sue particolarità sono il colletto a bavero, le tasche a taglio obliquo nonché la chiusura a tre bottoni marroni xxl con effetto marmorizzato.
rigorosamente con spalline, per definire meglio la silhouette.
Giubbotto #vintage uomo a firma dell'azienda italiana porto di panamà, fondata nel 1967 per la produzione e distribuzione di capi di abbigliamento uomo sartoriale.
la sua composizione in 100% poliestere garantisce un'ottima tenacità ed elasticità nonché una buona resistenza agli agenti chimici e fisici.
taglio classico, vestibilità regular fit, collo alla coreana arricchiscono il suo valore ma la morbidezza data dall'effetto kidskin e la presenza di tasche esterne ed interne ne confermano la sua comodità h24.
Montone #vintage shearling a firma dell'azienda italiana stephen, fondata nel 1986 per la produzione e distribuzione di capi di abbigliamento donna in pelle, shearling e pellicceria.
distinta sul mercato nazionale per ricercatezza sia a livello stilistico che qualitativo, ci consente oggi di riportare alla luce come merita uno dei suoi meravigliosi modelli.
esterno marrone ocra ed interno roccia creano il giusto contrasto che lo rendono inconfondibile, anche tra mille.
i bottoni sono il dettaglio aggiuntivo che fa la differenza: struttura a fiore in metallo con interno in camoscio sono la cornice di un capo pensato per le donne che non hanno paura di osare.
giacca #vintage rosso cardinale
composta da 80% lana e 20% poliammide.
la particolarità del capo è il modello oversize che garantisce una vestibilità comoda e morbida, oltre alla presenza di spacchetti laterali estetici e funzionali poiché riducono il problema di stropicciamento del retro della giacca quando si è seduti.
impreziosisce i bordi del capo nonchè colletto e revers l'impuntura bianca che dona quella giusta dose di colore, rendendolo un dettaglio elegante e brioso allo stesso tempo.
ultima info degna di nota sono i bottoni gioiello dorati con interno in madreperla, presenti anche sulle tasche frontali, che rendono questo capo unico come solo un made in italy può fare.
The most effective way to reduce waste is not to create it in the first place.
choosing reusable over single use items helps to prevent pollution, save energy and money, reduce green house gas emissions that contribute to global warming, reduce the amount of waste that needs to be recycled or sent to landfills and sustain the environment for future generations.
Don’t forget to stop in at hyvee and purchase a “my heart” reusable shopping bag this month.
throughout january, $1.00 of the purchase price is donated to keep fremont beautiful when you remove the scratch off layer on the giving tag and enter the code online at myhy-veecause.com.
did you know...
the average plastic bag is used for just 12 minutes.
americans use 100 billion plastic bags each year.
it takes at least 500 years for a plastic bag to degrade in a landfill. however the bags never break down completely, but instead photo-degrade, becoming microplastics that absorb toxins and continue to pollute the environment. microplastics are ingested by wildlife, including fish and crustaceans, which are then subsequently consumed by humans.
help take a greater responsibility in preserving our earth for future generations. choose to reuse every time! #choosetoreuse#keepfremontnebeautiful
