Thanks @bottegazerowaste for this great #zerowaste post!

โœจHow do you remove make-up and keep it zero waste?
.
I really cannot believe I have not done this a long time ago! Itโ€™s so so simple: you need a light oil of your choice and a microfibre cloth. .
Iโ€™m using coconut oil which works great in the summer when itโ€™s always in a liquid state but you need fractionated coconut oil if you want it to stay liquid throughout colder temperatures! Otherwise other good options that remain liquid are sunflower oil or sweet almond oil.
.
Does it work? Yes!!
.
-spray a tiny amount of the oil on the cloth (super tiny or your eyes will feel super oily and sticky, not nice!)
-rub gently on your face and your eyes re-adding a bit of oil if necessary -wash and rinse your face well with a bar of soap. I use my homemade activated charcoal & avocado peppermint tea tree soap
-what to do if you are travelling and cannot bring any liquids? The microfibre cloth with a bit of warm water will work! .
What is your experience with zero waste make up removal?

**WARNING DANGEROUS PLASTIC** Over 100,000 fish and sea creatures and over 1 million sea birds die from plastic pollution per year. Let's stop this. Every little bit counts! @ecocean.com.au #ecocean #plasticfreeoceans

Vicki will be the first to admit flat cloth nappies are not her fortรฉ but sheโ€™s recently learned how to fold them and is getting some practice in on this teeny tiny little newborn. Oliver is a sweet little premmie and at 3 weeks old is just 2.2kg. .

I've always talked rubbish, but now it's official.
We need to rethink our attitudes and beliefs about the waste we produce and the effect this is having on all living things around us ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿž
On a 20 minute walk yesterday I collected 2 overflowing bags of rubbish (& that's just all that I could carry). So I did what any millennial would do, and made a video about it. Link in bio x

I LOVE working with young minds! (Just not all day long... I totally suit high school teaching ๐Ÿ˜‚). Thanks so much to Rosanna who invited me to speak with her students from years 3-6 about how I live a life with less single-use plastic!

They asked about the challenges and successes when trying to live #plasticfree, about bamboo toothbrushes, how to still eat chips ๐Ÿ˜… and much more!

My favourite questions were:
- "How do you feel about being the odd-one-out being plastic-free?" I explained that I don't feel like the odd-one-out. I have thousands of followers who are trying to do their bit, and follow many who have thousands and thousands of followers who are being inspired by their journey ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™€๏ธ . - "Which beach is the most in need of cleaning up plastics? We'd like to do a beach clean" ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ‹ .
- "How do I get my takeaway noodle soup plastic-free?" Before I even answered he guessed the answer himself from my presentation. He'll be taking his #byocontainer and reusable spoon and chopsticks and asking, "May I use my own bowl? I'd like #NoPlasticPlease" ๐Ÿ˜

I have so much hope for our future ๐Ÿค˜

I hope I further inspired them! Thank you to everyone who inspires me too!

When you have to scrounge in the undergrowth for your Christmas decorations because the grounds staff do a stellar job ...
.
.
Of course it would be far easier to buy some zero waste ornaments but coming from a crafty family and being a bit of a bowerbird, I love fossicking for treasures and making something unique. .
.
And when I'm done with these I can put them back where I found them (unless I paint them).

Worked with some awesome students at @ballarattechschool today to upcycle plastic bags into some cool new products. We made a mockup of a stylish waterproof jacket, cosmetics bag, pencil case and overnight bag.
Was awesome to see young people engaged and positive about making good change for the planet

Celebrate the WINS!!! @airnz is ditching all single-use plastic items from their flights!! Including cups, straws etc!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ so bloody cool.

I walk around a lot and I love the great outdoors. I also never leave the house without a spare plastic bag so when I see things lying in the street that shouldnโ€™t be there I pick them up and stick it in my bag to be disposed of properly as and when I can. You could say Iโ€™m your average everyday womble, doing my little bit to clear up this beautiful planet we all live on ๐ŸŒ
.
Iโ€™d love to create a community of like minded every day wombles, we can share photos of or litter pick hauls by using the hashtag #everydaywomble. If everyone picked up only one piece of litter everyday the world would be a much happier and healthier place.

These are soap nuts, our alternative to laundry detergent. Soap nuts contain saponin, a natural detergent. The soap nut shell absorbs water and releases the saponins which circulate as a natural soap in the wash water, freeing dirt, grime, and oils from clothing. We were sceptical at first, but after the first wash our clothes were cleaner than theyโ€™d ever been, and plastic free! We get ours from our local bulk food shop ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฑ

[2/2] There was nothing left of the plant but a stump, no more than a cm high. And some rather sad looking roots.

My ego rejected the stump. I bought a new, more aesthetically pleasing plant, wanting to hide any evidence of failure.
I mindlessly tossed the rejected plant out the kitchen window, wished it a fulfilling afterlife, and moved on.
I planted new veggies and forgot that little capsicum ever existed.
Fast forward a few years to two weeks ago, when I arrived home from work on my bike, sweaty AF, and realised Iโ€™d forgotten my keys. I generally donโ€™t like to break into houses in broad daylight, but sometimes shit happens and you have to compromise.

As you might be anticipating by now (if youโ€™re still with me ๐Ÿ˜œ), there was a silver lining to this mishap. In my awkward scramble round the side of the house, the side that gets zero love or affection & even less sunlight, I look down and I see that absolute TROOPER of a capsicum Iโ€™d abandoned probably 3 years earlier!

I havenโ€™t quite decided what this is a sign of yet, but itโ€™s DEFINITELY a sign, & I canโ€™t wait to find out what it is! โœจ

Current sitch: Itโ€™s now safe and happy in its new home. It gets plenty of sunlight, water and love. And itโ€™s growing bigger and juicier by the day ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ’š
