My baby girl.

Anything, everything! I love experiencing new things! I am based in Perth, Australia and also available for online work. #multidisciplinary #hireme #studentlife #unilife #lookingforwork #puttingitoutthere #perth #westernaustralia #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #makeithappen #success #smallbusiness #startup

Our bond is stronger than any other. Our bond is eternal. My daughter. Alba. ❤

Give me today my daily coconut, bananas, and raw vegan chocolate 👌 Thank you @loving_earth, thank you @cocobella, thank you Australian farmers, and thank you @basilsfinefoods! Bring on the far north WA coconut plantations! #agroforestry #foodforests #permaculture #bananas #rawvegan #vegan #coconut #coconutwater #rawchocolate #circulareconomy #compostablepackaging #ecopackaging #globalecosystem #cacao #localfood

Continuing on from my last post. These are the first results in from a survey of rubbish collected from around Bali on the island-wide clean-up effort hosted on Feb 19th, just passed.

Two simple solutions, that need both your support and your involvement:

1) Encourage the transition of plastic bags, straws, plastic bottles/cups and food wrappings into compostable/marine soluble/integrative, plant-based plastics. These packaging alternatives exist already and only need to be implemented. This requires: Education/Public Support; Investment; and would be helped by regulation (e.g. a systematic ban of non-compostable packaging). Using this collection experience as an example, the switch to compostable/marine integrative alternatives would result in at least 74% of this uncaptured waste (pollution) not really being so much of a problem.

But, in saying that, it would still be a problem (albeit markedly less so). Which is why:

2) We need better waste management systems. Incentives for waste to be kept within these systems. A stronger and more widely inclusive waste economy. Entry level roles. It is incredible that there is so much money and so many jobs in resource extraction and production roles, but so few in resource recovery - waste management - collecting rubbish! Once we switch to a more circular economy, this will change, and I feel this is where we need more involvement right now: figuring out how to close all of these disconnected resource life-cycles, and make more of what we use today, able to be recycled. Sustainable production.
We can, we will, and we already are.
Let's make this happen!

What if these plastic bags were all compostable? Not degradable, not biodegradable, but chuck-em-in-your compost bin compostable. What if these compostable plant-based plastic bags were all collected? Sent to a composting facility and combined with collected food waste and beneficial microorganisms to create a fantastic compost blend? Can you think of ways we could use this compost product?

These are viable solutions that can be implemented now, and in some ways, already are. Our culture is not necessarily the problem. It is the materials that weave our culture together.
We are on the right path. Moving forward into a sustainable, powerful, resilient, creative, productive, expansive human culture. I am really, really excited. Liberation!

I loooove watermelon! What's your favourite fruit?

I love this. To every little person, and every big person, too (perhaps especially so): You are capable of so much good. So much. You are good. ❤

Mmmm fresh figs!!! Fig season is here and providing me with delicious natural treats, like this juicy number. 👌❤🌊 #figs #perth
