You’ve heard about the capsule wardrobe. Why not put together a “capsule kitchen”? ⠀

By choosing only versatile and long-lasting kitchen cookware, you throw out less cookware and save money. 😃 🙌⠀

Cast iron pots like this one from Le Creuset often have a lifetime guarantee. Compare that to the average life-span of non-stick cookware of 3-5 years (which, by the way, are rarely recycled due to their plastic teflon coating 😒 ). ⠀

See link in bio to learn more. 💚🐢

Plastic Free July - Tip 20

Use china marlers/grease pens when you go bulk shopping to write the codes on your jars ✨
.

I used to write the codes on a little tape, but that would still produce some waste. I knew there was a better solution ☀️ I tried with a permanent marker. It created no waste when used, but would at the end of its life! I decided to try china markers because all you are left with at the end is paper 💚🌎

Blueberries from my parents' yard, home roasted chickpeas, raw almonds, homemade hummus, bell pepper, tomatoes, and basil from the garden with a bit of feta that I'm trying to use up.
-------
I work as a landscaper in Georgia and in this heat, I gotta eat a lot to keep my energy up! I try to pack a food meal so I don't feel tempted to run into the gas station to buy packaged junk food. What's in your lunch bag? 🍏

It was really a inspirational and fruitful dialogue with @zerowastehome. And thank you Sin Chew Daily for the write up. Thank you @mytaknak and @zerowastemalaysia_official for organizing such a meaningful event here at @a_bit_less. We really hope that the concept of reducing waste can be spread out to every corner in the world. We can do this!

***Lunch Boxes***
.
If you want to give yourself a bit of a challenge this Plastic Free July then invest in a stainless steel lunchbox and start making your own lunches from fresh produce! 🥦🍅🥑 Sure it seems a bit long at first but once you get into it, it becomes a fun daily ritual that allows you to eat better and healthier while cutting down on your plastic.
.
Today I am talking about our stainless steel lunch boxes from @asliceofgreen which are my favourite way of packing my lunch and keeping leftovers. They look so cool, their durable and will last you for decades if cared for! A far better healthier alternative to plastic lunch boxes. 👍
.
♻️ Stainless steel is sustainable, durable and infinitely recyclable
✔️ Plastic free
🎉 Replaces plastic lunch boxes
💚 Non-leaching and chemical free
.
These lunch boxes are great for this time of year especially when going to picnics and bbqs, they will keep your food fresh and your plastic waste at a minimum! 🌍
.
What do you use your stainless steel lunch box for?

Rp @zerowastebali Plastic straws are really bad for the ocean. In the Indonesia alone, the consumption of Plastic Straws is reached 93.2 Million by 2018. And most of those ends up in our oceans, polluting the water and killing marine life. An estimated 71% of seabirds, 90% of fish, and 30% of turtles have been found with plastics in their stomachs. When they ingest plastic, marine life has a 50% mortality rate. What would our oceans be without marine life? 🐳🐋🐬🐟🐠🐡🦈🐙🐚🦀🦐🦑

I found a new zero waste tooth powder from a Canadian Company! 🙌
I think it tastes great. It's made with all natural ingrdients and the best part is no xylitol! Maya is a typical doodle and finds ways to get into everything, so products with xylitol are a big no no in our house.
I'm still getting used to brushing with powder instead of paste but so far so good!

To avoid 2go waste for some fries, kebab, ketchup or whatever you want to snack when you are „on the road“, you should simply cook some more the day before to have your own food for example at lunch break at the next work day ❌🍟🌭🍔= 🥦🥔🥗 it’s healthier, cheaper and you‘ll receive some karma points for acting smart & environmental friendly🍃how great is that?!😜 other idea: zero waste experts bring an own reusable box, so the restaurant can fill it directly in it 😉 what’s your opinion on 2go waste?🤗 Stay clean.

When I travel, I now have the urge to visit supermarkets if only to check how its produce section looks like. This was taken this afternoon at Puregold Embarcadero branch in Legazpi City. 😊👌

Today's #plasticfreejuly tip is for #laundryday. There are several options for cleaning your laundry #plasticfree but these are the easiest. There's no recipe, and you don't need to grate a bar of soap. The first way is to use white vinegar and a little salt. That's it! I just eyeball it but I would say 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1tbs of salt. I've also tried with just vinegar.
I like that way but my favourite is to use #soapberries and #bakingsoda. I found the soap berries smelled weird and sprinkling in baking soda has fixed that!
You can also just use baking soda, or just use soap berries. Baking soda is sold in cardboard almost everywhere if you can't find it in bulk!

Last year I saved up to buy myself a pair of high waisted, 50s style jeans.
.
Not high waisted as in reaches my waist, high waisted as in comes up to my rib cage
.
and I wore them incessantly
.
but the inner seams started to wear, as they always do...so last month I bought another pair for the coming autumn
.
(I also looked at the shorts in the same style...but couldn’t justify both)
.
So today, in a moment of either insane madness or good old British wartime thriftiness (depending on your outlook on life) I lopped off the legs of the well worn pair to make rolled up, high waisted denim shorts
.
and I’m soooo loving them!!
.
Make do and Mend & Waste not Want not all wrapped up in a fabulous denim garment!

What is cold process soap making? 🤔

It involves mixing a combination of oils (for example olive, coconut, avocado, hemp, sustainable palm, sweet almond, castor) with sodium hydroxide (lye), creating a chemical process called saponification - this process changes the composition of the oils to create soap! Oils are chosen based on their various properties - hardness, lather, etc.
Saponification results in a thick batter to which you can add any number of goodies for colour, scent and texture - think essential oils, clays, coffee, tea, oats, herbs, flowers.

This is poured into your mould of choice and left for 12-48 hours to set. Bars of soap are then individually cut and then left to cure for up to six weeks. The curing stage allows the bars to harden and dry as the air circulates around them.

A long process indeed, but a beautiful, slow, mindful one!
