Re-charging in the dream pod at @ellobohome. Love being surrounded by the warmth of all of these bespoke wooden pieces. "The use of wood in homes and interiors promotes people's physical and mental health and wellbeing." (Marjut Wallenius, University of Tampere). We could all use a little more wood. (Excuse that awful pun, I've just watched Deadpool 2 twice and apparently I'm Ryan Reynolds now).

Glass recycling is a closed-loop system that cuts energy use by 21%. Glass can be recycled indefinitely, being melted down into more glass to be used over and over. Also, when accounting for the energy used to extract virgin resources, creating new glass from recycled glass uses 21% less energy. Additionally, recycled glass has the same benefits of other recycled materials: decreased natural resource extraction, reduced carbon emissions, job creation in the recycling industry, and elimination of potentially hazardous waste. Be sure to recycle next time you finish another glass. .

Checked the worm bins today and I have 30+ lbs of castings ready for this year's teas. Should be plenty for my needs. Now days my beds are established with native worms tunneling and depositing castings, but I still like to add castings to teas here and there and especially to young plants before they hit the bed.
These guys feed mostly on composted leaves, grass clippings and food scraps. Composting these materials first helps keep down moisture issues in this style of custom bin. The 4 bins each have a double bottom with holes for air flow, 1" screened holes on the base and along the top, as well as a rectangular screened top.
If you are from the Northwest and want to support someone local I recommend NorthwestRedWorms.com. Baiting redworms is pretty easy if you don't need a lot quickly, but nwredworms is who I go through for bulk.

As the weather changes consider a rummage through your local charity shop or pop along to a vintage fair instead or buying new or why not swap some unwanted pieces with friends? You could even make a bit of extra holiday money by selling old garments on @ebay_uk, @vinteduk or @depop. But please do not throw them in the bin 😀 Fashion fact from Sainsburys

Inside every car tire is this structure made of synthetic yarns. Plastics come in many forms and are extremely useful & recyclable, but only when we learn how ➰ #closetheloop #circulareconomy

"Did you know that cotton tote bags aren't as sustainable as you think? It turns out that the ecological footprint of a cotton tote bag is 327 times worse than a regular plastic bag. They only become environmentally viable when they're used repeatedly. We're encouraging just that, so donate your unwanted tote bags here and give them a new life." Brands, please stop giving us cotton shoppers! I have literally been given hundreds upon hundreds and they all get used once and then taken to the charity shop. Think of all the water, the pesticides, the energy. Well done,

A good quality and timeless salopette is an absolute essential for every wardrobe. Tough looking with a pair of boots or sneakers or casual chique combined with high-heels, our FESTIVAL salopette suits every occasion. Buy it once and love it forever - sounds like a good deal doesn't it? 😉

What do you use to write with? Are you an 'any pen will do' person? Do you have a specific type of pen you like? Or do you just have one pen that you use and love (and no-one can touch it!). While I've always wanted a fountain pen, but as a leftie, I was always put off getting one because I worried about the 'smudge factor'. But recently I got sick of being surrounded by crappy, plastic pens and decided to buy a basic @lamy_official fountain pen and it's awesome!

Fountain pens and other (long term) reusable writing instruments were the norm until a few decades ago, but these items have been swept up by our disposable culture and while not single-use, have become another item that is cheap and meaningless and too casually thrown away.

My pen is not 100% zero waste - nothing truly is - the ink bottle will need to be recycled and parts of the pen are plastic, but it is something that I will last if I care for it. The more we can connect with and value what's in our life, the less we will feel the need to overfill it.

Next #happivoresupperclub dish is “The Red Barn” that became a guest favorite, was inspired by our dairy farm visit to #khaoyai where there stood a big red barn. This beet salad execution is inspired by my chef mentor @chefjeremyfox and his philosophy of creatively and technically using all parts of an ingredient to achieve great textures and flavors, while also “closing the loop” to cut down food waste. • beetroot • @homemadecheeseco feta cheesecake • Yatee’s tribe fermented wild honey • beetsoil • beet whey sauce • Chiang Mai wild arugula • dill #happivore #happivorebyevelynyap #eatwellbewell #organic #plantdriven #locavore #dontwastefood #createfood #createjournal #dogood #vivarusticcanyon #gratitude #philosophy #closetheloop #neverstoplearning

I received good news today... my business plan has been approved! 🙏🏽 I’m very grateful to have 2 mentor’s guide me through this journey to business owner. I won't be applying for a loan but, it’s still great to know that my business plan shows potential. A finished plan doesn't mean you are guaranteed success. Instead, this is a live document which will constantly need adjusting. It has taken me 9 months to write it and I have learnt so much from this experience. This is one that will probably stick with me now that I know it. - try, fail fast and try again.
