This photo is an example of one of the many reasons why I now avoid using plastic pots: they shatter easily.
The pot is just a couple years old, but they deteriorate quickly with prolonged sun exposure. This one was on my back patio and had a plant in it. It needed to be temporarily moved. When I lifted it up, my finger poked right through.
Later on I transplanted the calandrinia in it into the ground. The pot crumbled in my hands at the lightest touch. I had to be careful to collect all the small shards and make sure they didn't end up in the newly dug hole and slowly poison the soil.
Trying out these small goodies from #EllanaMinerals in travel sizes. #EllanaMineralCosmetics promotes #BeautyThatDoesMore by creating products that have Vegan Ingredients, Paraben-Free, Cruelty-Free and Fragrance Free so I have less worries to wear a little make up while caring for my premie baby. Their Loose Mineral Foundation range also have refill packs and promotes reuse of the refillable containers which I definitely love as they really care for Mother Earth. I know my reduction can only contribute a little but I believe small efforts count. #GoGreen #ReducePlasticUsage #ReduceReuseRecycle
The package for my repeat order arrived yesterday. I did not bother to provide substantial review for the previous order because of so many reasons. I was also looking forward to test it out first before giving out any feedback so here I go. The shampoo bar was supposed to be good for 70-80 washes but I believed mine didn't and wouldn't last for that much because I lather it too much on my hair. Same with the conditioner bar which I had been rubbing like crazy on my hair because I could not easily feel it spreaded all over. However afterwards, I would find it longer to rinse since I rubbed too much and because it was made of several types of oils to nourish hair. I tried to use the shampoo bar without the Conditioner bar and my hair felt squeaky clean. What I did was to let my hair to airdry up to at least 70% before combing to prevent hair breakage. But when I use both of the products... of course the result is better. I just wanted to point out that these products might not feel the same way as the commercial hair products people were used to but could deliver same effects and nourishment. Ordering these products online is a little bit costly than the usual or maybe because I also need to pay for the shipping and I order for longer supply. I am trying to look for cheaper supplier moving forward because I feel pretty serious about minimizing my single plastic usage and disposal. #EcoWarrior #ReducePlasticUsage
Derawan is a remote island located in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. We took 3hours flight to Tarakan, continued with 3 hours boat ride to reach this beautiful place. The water is clear and the sky is blue, filled with thousands of stars during the night. But honestly, this place is getting trashed. More and more plastic waste are being thrown to the sea.
I was hunting sunrise on the beach where all these plastic bottles and bags caught my eyes. I couldn't help but clean it up. I even found baby diapers!
Today is #worldcleanupday2018 Let's take a moment to be responsible with our own waste. Reduce non recyclable and single use plastic usage and slowly switch to more sustainable options.
I know it can be tough to break habits and to change things you have literally been doing all your life but take it one step at a time, concentrate on reducing and everything else will fall into place.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out my latest blog on *tip on living without plastic 🏞️🙌

My groceries shopping today. Almost plastic free, the 0.90cent pack of strawberries is too good to miss 😅 as for the produce bag there, it's actually an unused cotton dust bag from my purse. It has better purpose now. I also plan to use the Kombucha glass bottle to store my homemade cold drinks. As for a pack of Shapes... it's my son's. Well, one good thing is the packaging are not made of plastic and can be recycled. A little progress for us for not buying a bag of single packs anymore 😊 #reduceplasticuse#reducereuserecycle#reduceplasticusage#sustainableliving#reusable#reducewaste#babystepsprogress
We need a wave of change and a material revolution. Here’s the story behind this haunting video.
It was taken in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, where Parley and collaborators are working hand in hand with the military and the city council. Over 500 public workers have been mobilized for this cleanup operation.
After three days of cleanups we have intercepted over 30 tons of plastic, but there is a lot more work to be done.
Wherever you are in the world, you can be part of the solution:
