#PlasticFreeJuly TIP 14: Swop tampons/pads for a menstrual cup! 😊
Menstrual cups are an eco-friendly alternative to sanitary products β™» There are so many benefits to them:
β€’ Holds twice the amount a tampon/pad does.
β€’ Can be worn for 12 hours .
β€’ Less odours. Menstrual blood can start smelling if it is exposed to air. Your menstrual cup rests against the walls of your vagina so it's airtight
β€’ One cup can last you years. You save money in the long run.
β€’ Avoid sending hundreds of tampons and tampon wrappers to landfill.
Menstrual cups are an unknown gem to periods πŸ‘©
I was quite weirded out at first πŸ™ˆ Especially since it took some practice to get it feeling comfortable. But don't give up. You just need to position it differently or try another folding shape. πŸ‘
A few months ago I left my cup in the UK (like a tool) and didn't order a cup before my period came. It was horrible using tampons again. Having to change every four hours and send so much waste to landfill was so annoying πŸ™„
The small pink one was purchased from @faithfultonature 😎

How stunning is this chair makeover? The lovely Kerri painted this beauty at our Paint Party Workshop last night. That's Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black on the fabric. Amazing, right?! @fusionmineralpaint with @repostapp

After cakes have been baked and figs harvested, there has been crochet- new projects gently simmering in the background (sounds idyllic right- well add kids chasing each other, squeeling and laughing and arguing, craft strewn all over the dinner table, dishes just done and groceries to put away πŸ™ŒπŸΌ). I'm excited to be creating items with a new little stockist in mind. Hope they like them (where's the fingers crossed icon when you need it πŸ˜€xx) #newprojects#bitnervous#hopetheylikeit

Yesterday's post is about finding plastic bag collection points as they are usually not collected by council recycling. Check the list of plastics you can bring to these collection points in the blog post and do your bit to ensure they don't go to landfill.

In the last year or so I have returned to building my life in line with the values that have always been in my core. Many of you have seen my re-ignited passion for my garden, permaculture, creativity and building. By immersing myself in these pursuits and surrounding myself with people who share my passion I feel so very happy and so very grounded. Nothing like working with the earth and timber to do that. More recently I have turned my mind to re-use of materials. Watching the recent TV series "War on Waste" provided me with the next extension in my thinking and how we can step by step make change. The influence of this series has been profound for myself, and to my delight, for my girls as well. I have posted three pics of objects I found on the side of the road, all off to landfill, and how I have re-used them. It gives me such satisfaction to have spent my Sunday repairing and re-inventing. No it's not sleek IKEA furniture or a pretty Bunnings trellis. It's so much more. #waronwaste #reuse #recycle #avoidlandfill #corevalues #leadbyexample

#minsgame Round 3 Day 14
The long forgotten cupboard under the sink got some attention!
Empty #whiskey boxes, used and dirty candles, lightbulbs, a dribble of rug doctor, shoe polish (from when we moved in 11 years ago!) A jar of used candles a saucer and a candelabra for a cake and approximately 50 #tealights from IKEA. I put these on @olio_ex and someone local came and picked them up to put them to good use. It makes me so happy that these will have a new life and not be sent to landfill.

Don't let your glass end up in the landfill... upcycle or recycle them instead!

How many thousands of computer keyboards end up in landfill I wonder? I'm trying to help just a little bit with these upcycled key earrings. Letters and/or commands can all be requested. . . #upcycled #recycled #landfill #recycledcomputers #geeky #itgifts #geekyjewellery #computerjewellery #eco #ecojewellery #green #avoidlandfill #computerrecycling #upcycling #teachergifts #itgifts

If you're heading to the shops today don't forget to take your own reusable bag! Did you know just one supermarket can use up to 5000 plastic bags per day?! Take the plastic free July challenge. @plasticfreejuly You can do it!

Plastic free July! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
There are a few simple things you can all do!
1. Buy a glass water bottle and refill.
2. Get a reusable bag and keep it in your car or handbag and use for shopping.
3. Stop using straws, do you really need it to help you drink? If so use stainless steal/bamboo drinking straws which you can reuse.
Remember the 6 R's
refuse, reduce, reuse, repair, recycle, rot

If you need any help or tips on how to make your life plastic free, just contact me. Enjoy everyone and welcome to the not so challenging challenge πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #plasticfreejuly #giveitago #itseasytoliveaplasticfreelife #dontbelazy #avoidlandfill #protecttheocean #reduceyourfootprint #goinggreen #environment #reducereuserecycle

Take your own reusable cup to work and seek out local cafes that will give you a discount for bringing your own cup. You'll save money and avoid sending disposable cups (which are not actually recyclable due to the lining used inside the cups to stop them leaking and going soggy) from going into landfill. #plasticfreejuly #recycleandreuse #bringyourown #letsgetserious #waronwasteau #savemoney #avoidlandfill #reusablecup

We are teaming up with our dear friends @pookiemaycoffee in the effort to reduce waste! So we’re calling out for spare, unwanted mugs in the Melbourne metro area that we can offer free instead of paper cups to those who want them.
Please help us re-home a mug and #saveacup from landfill - PM or email info@vagabondcoffee.com.au. #waronwaste #reuse #recycle #webringthemugs #avoidlandfill #ourenvironment #ourplanet #bethechange #dogood #byocups #keepcups #melbourne #melbournecoffee #coffee #hotchocolate #mugs #cups #hotdrinks #unwanted #melbournebarista #baristalife #mobilecoffee #ontheroad #rehomeamug #thankyou #lovemelbourne #coffeeculture #lovecoffee

A little bit of the pattern from a platter I scored from @salvosstores the other day. Totally love it and a bargain at $4...how pretty is it! I'm a little bit obsessed with it at the moment 😍
