Even when traveling we take our little jar of toothpowder with us. There are many ways to make toothpowder/paste on your own. Experiment. Be resourceful. I keep it simple for the two of us - baking soda, bentonite clay, and peppermint oil. I don't measure the amounts - for me, it's all about intuition and knowing our personal consistency. Sometimes we add coconut oil, clove, or myrrh gum powder. Lots of options. Learn what works for you. And remember, it's about making less waste (no way to make absolutely zero waste - until we globally move to a circular/zero waste economy) and holding the circular mindset to your unique lifestyle! 🌎🖐🏼 #bezero #makelesstrash #zerowaste #plastickills #plasticpollutes #eco #green #simple #simplify #lessismore #lesswaste #inspiration #refuse #reusables #circular #earth #brushwithbamboo #zerowastehome #bethechange #natural

Most laundry softeners are packaged in plastic and contain synthetic fragrances, phthalates, preservatives, and quaternary ammonium compounds - simply yuck. By making our own we can avoid the plastic waste and chemicals. Check out my 2 ingredient laundry softener, link in bio. Wool dryer balls also help to soften clothes and reduce drying time by 25%, while eliminating static cling. We can add essential oils to dryer balls if we like scented laundry, and say no thank you to single-use toxic dryer sheets.💚🌏☀️#laundry #laundrysoftener #dryerballs #chemicalfreehome #chemicalfree #simplethings #circularhome #circularliving #circularmindset #diy #homemade #circularlifestyle #kindplanet

Working on last sculpture for Sat 13th May show by Las Amigas - Coburg

Hong Kong Soup 湯Transform

Recovered toys - action heroes and transformers reflect inadequate disposal of children’s toys, with the message to TRANSFORM the habits and behaviour of the younger generation in Hong Kong, with the emphasis being to take action. (Includes; ACTION figures and transformers recovered from various beaches over past 3 years). • 香港垃圾 ‘Hong Kong Soup:1826’ is a series depicting waste plastic collected from over 30 different beaches in Hong Kong since 2012. Over 1,826 tonnes of municipal plastic waste goes into landfills EVERY DAY in Hong Kong, and each image reflects the diverse range of these products by highlighting recovered objects or groups that have escaped recycling or landfill. •

Today we walked up Diamond Head Crater and saw some awesome views. Couldn't believe how much rubbish there was the whole way up though!

We are on a mission to reduce the use of plastic straws in NYC, starting in the #eastvillage. Ask your local deli, #juice bar, or coffee shop if they will place one of our "Do you need a straw?" signs on their counter. 500,000,000 plastic straws are used per day in the US and many end up as #litter on our streets and then oceans. #skipthestraw trashfreewaters #saveouroceans #plasticpollutes #plasticfree #nyczerowaste

I met Rob briefly last year, he's a surfer based in Leyte. And he makes these awesome eco boards using plastic bottles.
If you want to learn how to make these boards or if you want to support @vegarob2.5 eco board project, please feel free to contact him here or on Facebook.
Great work, Robbie! Hope to see you sa line up this surf season so I can try your eco board. Hehe 😊🌊🏄🏾 #makingwaves #ecoboard #moreoceanlessplastic #surf #surfing #surfer

The great thing about these rubbish collection walks is not only does @moveplaylearnmama get to increase her mileage for #walktheyear2017 but she always ends up running into friends and takes care of errands......all whilst helping the planet a bit. It's not really too hard at all is it?

‪Pulled out many abandoned ropes. Not sure if they were washed ashore or were left intentionally. I think I gained muscles from pulling this off the beach. 💪🏾😸‬
Beach clean up is actually a good workout. 😊

Beach clean team was out again this morning. There have been exceptionally high tides this week that have been moving around a lot of micro-plastic so we shifted gears and brought out the rakes today. The beaches are covered with a staggering amount of micro-plastics but when the tides move them around like this it's a good opportunity to clean up this difficult mess so we are on it. The first picture you see here is one of our raked up piles waiting to be hand sorted. The second picture is a pile of the nasty debris in a sack and ready to be hauled off of the coastline.

Refuse. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. ROT!
.
Food waste is a huge problem, almost 40% of our food is wasted. You can fix this by only buying what you need, meal planning, and making sure you eat all the food you buy.
.
You will still have food scraps to throw away! The scraps we throw away in the trash will go to the landfill and essentially be entombed, producing methane, a harmful greenhouse gas.
.
By composting your food scraps your food is able to decompose and turn into rich, nutritious soil which can then be returned back to the earth.
.
There are a few options for composting:
1) Backyard composting. You can easily google how to make a backyard composting system or where to buy one.
2) Vermicompost 🐛🐛🐛or composting with worms! Worms eat your food scraps and 💩💩💩the compost, these are called vermicast. This can be done inside or outside.
3) Community Compost or a pick-up service. This is what we do since we are short on space and don't have access to a yard. We save up our food scraps from the week (in our fridge or freezer so they don't smell) and take them to a local community farm where they will use the compost! 🍎🍌🥑
.
You can compost things like: fruit & vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, egg shells, tea bags, and yard waste. 🥚☕️🍃

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.” —Theodore Roosevelt
