What are you doing to celebrate #EarthDay? Make sure to go outside, get some exercise and fresh air. Smoke some weed! •

If something costs next to nothing to buy- then someone must have been paid even less to make it. There is nothing for nothing. There is always a price- in the case of fast fashion the cost is entirely human. #buylessbuybetter #notofastfashion #humancost #fastfashion #lessbetter ##consciousconsumption #lucysiegle #consciousdesign #consciousliving #groconscious

When I started dabbling in vegetarianism in the 80s I did it because I never liked the taste of meat. It wasn't for health, cruelty to animals, or concerns about the environment. I continued to eat everything with bouts of being plantbased into the 90s and 2000s. Then as I got older I got more serious about eating mostly plant-based for health. You feel so much better eating whole foods plantbased and raw (unprocessed, in the natural state to the extent possible). I went through a spell of being strict about consuming raw food but then I realized that there's no defined way to live and eat, a lifestyle that works for everyone. Also health is more than just what you eat, it's what you do and think on a daily basis. If you have negative toxic feelings and thoughts about pple and yourself that will translate into dis-ease in some shape or form. Not to say that you can't have negative thoughts or feelings but you observe them feel them and let them go---this is part of the mindfulness practice that is helpful!
There's no right and wrong way. You have to do what's possible and right for you. So in the last few years I would say that I am mostly plant-based for health, the animals, and environment. And for me knowing all I know about health, the treatment of animals and industrial farming, and the degradation of the environment because of the huge consumerism practice is enough to motivate me to make the effort to make my own mylk, juice and minimize damage to myself & family and the world. Because we are all connected like it or not breathing the same air feeding off the prevalent energies around us ✨

@scriberian created this wonderful illustration how to avoid using plastic in your daily life. Personally, I'm trying it currently out! It's challenging, but possible and has some really impactful side effects: 1. I produce less waste 2. a more healthy lifestyle and 3. more Money left at the end of the month! Try it out - it's worth it :) #PassOnPlastic #sketchnote @lessplasticuk @originalunverpackt @skyoceanrescue #visualstorytelling #artistsofinstagram #recycle #plasticpollution #savemarinelife #reuse #avoid #plasticfree #lifestyle #safetheplanet #sustainabilitymatters #savetheplanet #ResponsibleLiving #Reusing #Reduce #sustainability #ecologicalconsumption #consciousconsumption #responsibility #environmentalists #climatechange #globalwarming #naturelovers #plasticfreemovement #thereisnoplanetb

Earth Day 2018 is all about putting an end to plastic pollution. This is no joke... plastic pollution has created a global crisis that we cannot ignore.
.
Although it's what you do everyday that really makes a difference, I challenge you to try and make it through today without using any single use plastic items. 💪
.
I've always considered myself an eco-advocate to some degree♻💃, but the first time I tried eliminating plastic from my day-to-day really opened my eyes to the magnitude of the problem we're facing- and how much I was still contributing to the problem 😮
.
If you're in a documentary kind of mood, check out Plastic Ocean on @netflix - it's quite the eye opener 👀
.
How are you advocating for our planet today?🌎🌱♻💪

Year for the Planet is a campaign to make better choices for the planet. 2017 was when I fixed my eating habits. This year, 2018, is where I deal with my clothing choices. —

Here’s one strategy I’ve used to whittle down my wardrobe into a manageable size: choosing a color palette. So in the rare occasions when I shop for clothing, I tend to do it by color to match the rest of my wardrobe. It has made shopping a lot faster; looking at a clothing rack, my field of vision automatically picks out the ones that match, reducing decision fatigue. A color palette gives one the gift of limitations. While I wear a lot of black, it’s great to put on some accent pieces or else I look at myself in the mirror and feel grumpy at all the dark fabrics.

So which parts of the rainbow end up in my clothing? A lot of reds, blues, and purples have been great for a very pale skin tone, while I usually stay away from orange and brown. I also like Asian and tropical patterns because of my heritage and my environmental work, and I often reject plaids and stripes because I just don’t think they work for me—I don’t want to be mistaken for a hipster and stripes give me an urge to fuss with the fabric a lot because I want them to be straight. Flowers are now in full bloom here in the castle in Vienna, so I feel like I match many of the blossoms that are finally out of hibernation.

Thinking in color has also made me look at clothing as a form of self-expression instead of a status symbol, as I don’t care much about brands and often reject clothes with logos. It’s also a form of therapy; if I’m feeling down, I’ll wear a bright red. If I want to blend in the forest, I’ll wear green. In this way, I own my decisions instead of regretting them later, or dreading the process again the next day. Like using food as medicine, color can be used for functional reasons, and it makes for a more efficient way to live!

EARTH DAY || Design & production can be a messy & wasteful process if you're not mindful. Unused materials, excessive packaging, stock that doesn't sell not to mention over consumption & over production ...the list goes on.

When I started Arrow & Plume I was living, designing & producing out of a solar powered RV in Canada. Having a modest amount of space makes you really think about how you can reduce/reuse/recycle.

So not only do I try to reduce my footprint in my personal life, I carry this into Arrow & Plume as a business ▫ Recycled materials for swing tags/business cards ▫ Recyclable & reusable packaging
▫ Using recycled/preloved/vintage materials
▫ Something as simple as unplugging tools when not in use
▫ If a design doesn't sell, then it's dismantled and repurchased into a whole new design
▫ Carefully measuring chains, sheet metals so that there is minimal waste.
▫ Making products that will last... It's by no means perfect, but it's a continual work in progress and I believe strongly that you should do what you can.
Happy Earth 🌍 Day friends xxx

Happy Earth Day! Selamat Hari Bumi🌏🌿
.
This year's theme is about plastic pollution that has become a massive problem for the earth.
.
#didyouknow that as of 2015, human beings have created plastic waste at an astounding rate. It was estimated to be around 6300 million metric tons with 79% of them in the landfills and the environment.
.
Let's make our mark in the urgent fight against climate change and end plastic pollution. Start small by bringing your reusable bag everyday and say no to plastic straws🙅👊
.
We have the power to make a change, so why not today?
