This is a fun fact from the book "Garbology" by Edward Humes, but it also points to a scary truth. Because it turns out, the way our consumption model works:โ €
โ €
๐Ÿ™‚ Strong economy = More waste and pollution ๐Ÿ˜žโ €
๐Ÿ˜ž Weak economy = Less waste and pollution ๐Ÿ™‚โ €
โ €
...which means we have to choose between prosperity or the environment. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ˜จโ €
โ €
Sounds like a no-win situation! Isn't there a better way? ๐Ÿค”โ €

Update on our Indiegogo campaign:
We've extended the deadline by 8 days to see if we can reach our stretch goal of $20,000 so that we can purchase a nut butter grinder for the store! If we don't fully reach our stretch goal, the funds will go towards helping equip our kitchen so that we can make delicious foods for you.

Omg omg we are going to Disney world tomorrow!!! It is a total spur of the moment trip and not my usual holiday! We are staying in the resort with no car so hunts for bulk stores and cooking will not be an option. Disney also does not allow glass into the parks so Mason jars filled with snacks are a no no. I was trying to think of how I would pack our Zerowaste snacks... when I remembered these containers! We were at a dinner party the other day and were sent us home with tons of leftovers in these containers. I was just going to recycle them but wait! They can be used a 3rd time to bring our snacks into Disney ๐Ÿ˜ also on my list is our water bottles, cloth napkins and stainless steel lunch boxes. I'm worried it might be hard to Zerowaste at Disney, but I am going to try!!! Anyone know if they have compost bins at Disney world?!?

anyone fancy a cup of plastic? ๐Ÿฅ‚ we picked all this up off a popular surf beach last Sunday morning! ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ the beach looked so clean at first glance but hiding under the seaweed was thousands of tiny pieces of plastic! In total we removed 11 plastic bottles, 8 toothbrushes, 5 lighters, 20 straws, 40 tampon wrappers, 45 glow sticks, 100 pieces of commercial fishing rope, 170 bottle caps, 200+ cotton bud/lollipop sticks and easily over 1000 pieces of microplastic. in only one hour on one small beach! blows our mind every time thinking all of this washed in from the ocean ๐Ÿคฏ imagine how much is still out there!! #fortheocean #cleanupcrew #beachcleanup #microplastics #cleanupaustralia #cleanuptheworld #take3forthesea #plasticfreeforthesea #noexcuseforsingleuse #beplasticfreeme #changestartswithyou #straya

Did you manage to grab a Vietnamese Bahn-Mi taster this morning? Made by our lovey senior kitchen assistant Robin ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ•

Spotted! One of my good friends Tammy using her Ecoffee cup in our local Waitrose. She was pleased/ relieved to show it off as I walked past. Basically, local folk that know me try to avoid me if they donโ€™t have their reusables ๐Ÿ˜‚. #reusablenotdisposable #noexcuseforsingleuse #plasticfreeliving #beingyourown #goodbyeplastic #ecoliving #plasticrevolution

[PROJECTS] ๐ŸŒThe Pillow Project: Bring Plastic into Sleep

POINTS TO CONSIDER ๐ŸŒIS IT COMFORTABLE/FLUFFY/SOFT? โ€“
Definitely, especially if you stuffed the plastic enough. But it really depends on your own preference if you want it to be fully-stuffed or not so. ๐ŸŒDOES IT PRODUCE AN ANNOYING NOISE?
You can still hear sounds here and there, but no, itโ€™s not noisy at all. You can get rid of the sounds depending on how you do the plastic stuffing. ๐ŸŒIS IT ITCHY? โ€“
Choosing the right pillow cover can avoid this problem. We usually create a base pillow first, then the pillow cover. ๐ŸŒDOES THE PLASTIC EMIT HEAT?
As per experience, it doesnโ€™t. Choosing the right cover that suits your style, personality, and preference for comfort will help a lot.

[PROJECTS] ๐ŸŒThe Pillow Project: Bring Plastic into Sleep

HOW TO MAKE THE PILLOW? ๐ŸŒSTEP 1-CLEANING
Make sure that there are no excess food/liquid in the plastic packaging.

Cut the edges, and wash them altogether. You can use dish-washing liquid instead of detergent, or you can try using the water in your washing machine right after washing your clothes. It would definitely save water, and as per experience, it does no harm to your machine.

Rinse thoroughly, hang each piece, and let them dry properly. ๐ŸŒSTEP 2-CUTTING
We do manual cutting. I know it requires more labor, but cutting largely affects the quality of the pillow so we prefer this method. Cut the plastics into thin strips. ๐ŸŒStep 3-STUFFING

Put the strips inside the base cover. ๐ŸŒFINISHED PRODUCT for sale/personal use โ€“
My mother usually receives orders from people in the neighborhood who donโ€™t have ample time to create their own. Yes, this is also available here at Ekomorebi PH. Help us share this project by sharing this!

WHERE DO WE GET THESE PLASTICS?
Oh no, weโ€™re not having a hard time. Plastics are everywhere. But here are some of our direct sources: ๐ŸŒOffice โ€“ I personally asked my officemates to segregate their office wastes until it became their habit. All plastic goes to me, alteast not to the landfills. I also asked a favor from our office helper to help segregate plastic trash from other kinds. In a week, I can take home a large box full of plastic packaging. ๐ŸŒSchool โ€“ My sister-in-lawโ€™s father is a helper in a school here in Antipolo City. My mother asked for his help with this project and he willingly did. In a week, he can collect three sacks of plastic. ๐ŸŒNeighborhood โ€“ my mother will usually convince her customers to return plastic wrappers to her instead of throwing them away. Surprisingly, they are cooperating, and even kids will return plastic wrappers from their consumed snacks.

HOW ABOUT NOW?
Just recently, my mother opened a sari-sari store again. Just imagine the tons of plastic we will have. What are we gonna do with these again? Yes, pillows! My mother decided to continue her project, take her step in lessening what we throw in the landfills, and little by little, save our only home.

[PROJECTS] ๐ŸŒThe Pillow Project: Bring Plastic into Sleep

THE BEGINNING โ€“ I remember that we used to have a sari-sari store (small convenient store) back in my childhood days. My mother would carefully sort out plastic wrappers from food/product packaging then cut them into thin strips instead of throwing them away. She would do the same in our own home. You might say, โ€œWhat will she do with the thin plastic stripsโ€? Good question. My mother turned them into soft and huggable pillows! Itโ€™s so overwhelming to see that some of her works are still with us fifteen years later. May forever sa plastic trash, at mas nagtatagal sila kesa sa relasyon nowadays huhu! But come to think of it, if these plastics werenโ€™t made into pillows, where are they now? Oh maybe they are taking their vacation on the beach and killing turtles or birds on the seashore, or theyโ€™re happily staying in the landfills for good.
