A low waste alternative to disposable hand/face wipes: cut up old shirts/rags/etc, fill a spray bottle with (distilled) ๐Ÿ’ฆ & a few drops of essential oil. Carry it all in a reusable pouch and when youโ€™re ready to use, just spray the cloth & go to town ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ Thanks @meredithtested for this awesome idea ๐Ÿ’ก <meg> #megandbryn

Crazy where our priorities are ๐Ÿ˜’ We seem to take advantage of our most important resources and often in favor of less important/unhealthy habits (clearing forest for grazing land to raise animals for eating is one example๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒด) It takes some work to align your values with your actions, but itโ€™s necessary for the future of our ๐ŸŒŽ #megandbryn | #regram @awastefreeworld

So this is horrible. Who does this? How do you take joy in killing animals? Gets you mad and fired up, right? Yeah, us too. But what about the animals on your plate ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿง Do you think about that? Why do people get mad about wild animals or pets being killed but when it comes to all the animals that get murdered (and treated like shit) every single day to end up on their plate, they turn a blind eye, ignore it or pretend itโ€™s OK. DOESNโ€™T MAKE SENSE. An animal is an animal and does not want to be killed. Murder is murder. Why are people OK with it if they get to eat it??? #megandbryn

A very filling but healthy dinner from last week: a spin on ๐Ÿฅ”salad - boiled sliced potatoes & green beans tossed in a ๐Ÿ‹ dill vinaigrette over arugula and a white bean & red pepper salad on the side ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ <meg> #megandbryn

Jars! They can be used for so many things: storing leftovers, packing lunches, buying in bulk, storing grains/seeds/beans, holding your DIY body butter, drinking out of...
Theyโ€™re free (use old pickle/peanut butter/pasta sauce jars) or cheap (thrift stores have SO many), make things look nice (& keep food visible so you donโ€™t forget about it) & best of all, can be infinitely recycled โ™ป๏ธ Glass > plastic โšก๏ธWhat do you use your jars for? #megandbryn | #rg @qitiji

Since beginning this low waste adventure a year ago, Bryn & I have made a lot of switches in our bathroom/personal care products ๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿ› Some products we just stopped using, some we sought out in sustainable packaging and made with safe ingredients (& locally, if possible) and some we now make ourselves ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ Pictured here are some of the most ๐ŸŒ-friendly changes Iโ€™ve made (๐Ÿ•—wise from top left): @skinfoodab deodorant in glass jar (made in Ohio), @albatross_sailing safety razor, homemade body butter in upcycled jar, @mylenacup menstrual cup, @the_greenroot bamboo toothbrush (although recommended brand is @brushwithbamboo) @davidsnaturaltoothpaste, @dentallace compostable silk floss & homemade essential oil roller. I didnโ€™t make all these changes at once-it happened gradually as I used up my previous products, researched sustainable/safe brands I wanted to support and decided how far I wanted to go down the DIY path. Have you made any low waste switches to your daily routine? ๐Ÿง–๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Are you curious about how to? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘‡๐ŸผPS-check our stories for more details & low waste product choices! ๐Ÿ’–<meg> #megandbryn

Wherever you are on your food/waste/downsizing journey ๐Ÿ›ฃ, remember to start small & just keep going ๐Ÿ”„ Itโ€™s all about progress, not perfection. Watch for the ripple effect around you. ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿ’ซ #megandbryn | #rg @boomerangbags

Thereโ€™s between 4.7 and 12.8 MILLION metric TONS of plastic in the ocean ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜‘๐ŸคญThatโ€™s like the equivalence of dumping the contents of one garbage truck into the ocean PER MINUTE. Scientists estimate that there will be more plastic in the ocean, by weight, then ๐ŸŸ by 2050 unless we DRASTICALLY change our plastic habits. PLEASE consider making changes to your daily routine- bring your own cup, your own tote bag, your own produce bag, your own utensils etc. Donโ€™t think that this issue will magically disappear. PLASTIC NEVER DISAPPEARS. #megandbryn | #rg @_nic.mac_

Hereโ€™s a good idea for an awesome late summer meal: veggie ๐Ÿ” over greens (this recipe is from @ohsheglows and on a *very* rare night, i was only eating half ๐Ÿ˜†) with an orzo ๐Ÿฅ— on the side.
