It’s this time of the year again 🍂. The time to pick up our #allnatural LAUNDRY DETERGENT, horse chestnuts aka conkers aka buckeyes 🌰, from the sidewalks 💚✨. Horse chestnut trees are widely cultivated in the temperate world, from North America, Europe to New Zealand! Just like soapnuts, they contain saponines, a soap like substance.
⛔️ Caution: horse chestnuts 🌰 are NOT edible ⛔️
(Refer to Wikipedia for pictures to see how you can tell them apart.)

++ WHY SOAPNUTS ARE NOT A GOOD CHOICE (unless you live in India!) ++
I know many eco-consious folks in industrialized countries like to use imported soapnuts from India. However, the growing demand in these countries has led to the extensive export of soapnuts, which in turn has led to soapnuts becoming too expensive for many locals to afford. Instead, they use chemical detergents that contribute to the water pollution, which is already an issue of concern in India. On top of that, the nuts are shipped across the globe, which causes transportation emissions!

If you live somewhere with horse chestnut trees, use your local “soapnut” instead! If you want to learn how to do so, head over to my blog, where I have a tutorial as well as an FAQ (👉clickable link in profile👈).

If you live somewhere where horse chestnuts do not grow, consider making your own powdered laundry detergent in less than 7 mins! (Recipe is also on my blog wastelandrebel.com)

TACOS and THOUGHTS 👇🏼💥 We came to meet Jared at an informal work event and I knew it was a takeout pizza dinner... so we brought tacos. 🍕 🌮 Filled with grass fed and finished shredded short ribs, avocado, and in organic corn tortillas, and a tin of grapes, and some local oranges. .
.
I wouldn't always do this, but I knew it would be fine for what tonight was. Yes we get to make good choices for health but there are different ways to do that and you have to be gracious and do what feels right for the situation. In other moments I'll eat before going so I can just order a side salad at a restaurant, or not eat at all (only if it's a stand up buffet style and it wouldn't offend people), or I'll choose the cleanest thing I can find and just decide to be ok with it. If it's a restaurant and I don't know it I'll usually research before to see the options, and in other situations I JUST EAT THE FOOD. I've eaten horrible, really unhealthy things in moments because ultimately people are more important than what I eat, I never feel victim to other people's opinions of control, but I do GET to be gracious and sensitive. That said, I'm also reeeeally not scared to be the odd one out 😉 if it's ok in the situation. Trust me, I've done some weird things food wise. .
.
All that to say, yes go out of your way to make good health choices, don't be afraid to be different, but do think about other people and don't be fearful of eating something you wouldn't normal, every now and again for the sake of relationship. We highly protect what we eat at home, so that when we're out if it's not perfect, it's no biggie. Just my two cents 😉.

ADAPTATION | I have learned so much about myself along my journey to live Zero Waste. Just another unexpected, yet wonderful, benefits to making a conscious decision to overhaul your life. 😂🙃 Inevitably this type of decision will challenge you, frustrate you, surprise you and teach you - all of which will help you grow. And, isn't that what we are put here to do?
Making the decision to commit to this lifestyle and center our family around the principles of voluntary simplicity is one of the decisions, in my life, that I am the most proud of.
So what's with the fruit bowl? 🍇🍉🍊🍋🍌🍍🍎🍒🍓 Well, looking at it on my dining room table it reminds me of how far we have come.

Three and a half years ago, our lives we pretty typical and as such we gave our children packaged snacks....a lot more than I realized (hindsight is a bia*ch 😉) Anyway, one of the greatest areas of stress for me when deciding to do away with excess packaging was kids snacks. WHAT was I going to give my kids?! In the beginning I baked A LOT, like 4 times a week and I spent a small fortune at the bakery buying muffins and cookies.
It took some time to realize that THAT was nuts. And slowly I gave up that habit. These days, I bake once a week (if my kids are lucky) and they help themselves to fruit from the bowl on the table as well as almonds or date balls in the pantry. We still go to the bakery once a week and splurge on a pain au chocolate or a muffin, but I am not carting home a filled container.
The lesson for me is that we have a tendency to over complicate things when simplicity is often the best approach.

This week’s vlog features my @jw.pei backpack - ultra-microfibre #vegan leather, eco-friendly and PETA certified 👍🏻 - a fantastic way to travel without causing harm to others and reducing your eco footprint. JW PEI are kindly gifting you guys $20 off with code sophie$20off - win win!

Adult things I should do more often:
.
-Drink WAY more water each day (#thirstythursday.. But seriously, I'm def dehydrated.)
-Go on long runs in the park
.
In other news, I did have two cookies for breakfast yesterday and a Dr. Pepper and jalapeño chips before 8am today. It's these rare diet choices that usually let my colleagues know I'm less than a week away from a big work event. In this case, it's 3 big events in 5 weeks! 😂 Yeaahhh, I need better coping mechanisms! Things like drinking more delicious chai tea lattes in the morning for caffeine, snuggling kittens when overwhelmed... Or at least watching more YouTube kitten videos...and eating less dessert for breakfast. (OK, I take back number 3. Eating dessert for breakfast is the one of THE best thing about being an adult.)
.
Realistic goal for the rest of this week:
.
-Get outside and exercise 1x
-Actually survive the week
.
Just keepin' it real for you guys.💃🏻 Happy Thursday!

This little treasure box of samples from @biopak.au is off to my daughter's school. Unwrapped is helping the canteen switch to plastic free for next term. They have already said goodbye to plastic straws 👌

What has your school/workplace done to reduce single use plastics?

I've been really enjoying my time in British Columbia. We went to Victoria, Tofino, and now we're here in Vancouver. Traveling and trying to live #zerowaste as we go has been successful and challenging. Today at a small restaurant, we ordered sandwiches for lunch. I added a soup to mine, noticing that they had #reusables (plates, bowls and glasses for everything). Our sandwiches came out on really cute cutting boards, but sadly they use wax paper to serve the sandwiches ON TOP of the cutting boards. I asked them not to use the wax paper to avoid the waste. Their response was, why does it matter - it can be composted? (I didn't see a compost bin btw). I said it wasn't necessary waste when our sandwiches can go right onto the cutting board. So we sat down, and they served us our sandwiches without the wax paper. But my soup was in a disposable bowl!!! After that entire conversation about wax paper, I didn't even get a real bowl! Ha! Life isn't perfect, and trying to be Zero Waste won't always be perfect either. I just have to go with the flow, even when I have moments that make me feel discouraged 😕. Another thing I've noticed here in Vancouver is the huge coffee culture, which is great but I hardly see people with travel mugs. Instead they are using disposable (and not recyclable) #coffee cups. The zero waste movement is growing, but there is still work to be done. I'm thankful for the community I've found on Instagram, and the support from family and friends. With enough awareness I think we can change the trend and make reusables the norm, and disposables less trendy. Instead of getting funny looks trying to reduce waste, I envision a day when people will get funny looks for using #singleuse #disposables. 🌿Thanks for hanging in there with my long post 😂💚 #travel #mindfullysustainabletravel

My next zero waste dilemna to tackle. Yes I am THAT person that buys a pallette of colours to use only 3 or 4, then the rest just sit in my bathroom draw for a century. This time I am only going to buy the single colours I need. Anyone know of any eyeshadow in a tin perhaps?

S C H O O L ~ H O L I D A Y S . . . it's impossible not to notice, when you live at the beach, that school holidays coincide with a huge increase in rubbish at the beach. This makes my mind boggle. Why flock to our natural beauties for your holidays and trash them while you're there? Why not leave them in a better state than you found them? Now I'm no expert, but surely we should be raising caring + responsible children who think about their actions and the repercussions on the environment and wildlife 🌏

Fri -Yay ... Enjoy the last day before school holidays 💚

Our last loaf was the best yet! Anyone interested in a blog post on what we do with #bertha to make this? We're not bakers at all but it seems to work for us!

Made an absolutely huge batch of dark hot chocolate mix for @codyjfullerton and some for work so he doesn’t need to buy it. A little extra planning goes a looooong way. We all have that one thing that we spend money on without thinking about the monthly costs, coffee anybody? ☕️💸🙈

Have you seen our sustainable product line for cats and dogs? We believe living a less wasteful life extends even to our furry friends, and we want to make quality products for them available as well.

Love seeing this HK doggy enjoy some playtime with his @honestpetproducts toy. Thanks for sharing with us @uncouthkate! Love ❤️ to see it!
