🌿 Yesterday, Green Party Spring Conference overwhelmingly voted to support children's right to have access to natural environments. Children who learn and play in nature are healthier, happier and perform better in school. 🌿

Despite the weather, we had a great weekend at our Spring Conference in Bournemouth. Our co-leaders Caroline Lucas and Jonathan Bartley put forward our demand for a People’s Poll on the final Brexit deal, outlined what an ambitious environment plan would look like, and pledged to introduce a Programme for Community Renewal to build our country from the bottom up.

Thank you #gpconf, and thank you to all our incredible members who braved the snow to get here 💚 Together, we can make 2018 the year that changes everything ✊

Happy #ValentinesDay! With love and kindness, we can build a more sustainable and just society where everyone is valued, respected and empowered regardless of who they are. Like if you agree 💚

Our seas are choking with plastic. Our planet is in peril. But it doesn't have to be like this - together we can make change happen. Join us! #blueplanet2 #blueplanet #environment

While wondering the best way to clean my shower during my plastic free week, my cat came up with an idea. Little does he know that I just needed a refillable bathroom cleaner from Splosh! Just buy your bottle and refill from concentrate from sachets you receive in the post! https://www.naturalcollection.com/shop/splosh-bathroom-cleaner-concentrate-starter-bottle---spearmint---melon---10g-by-splosh/?PCode=DSGPESS15&gclid=CjwKCAiA07PRBRBJEiwAS20SIJ65i6Zn7egot_ULJCN_uLiVfdF40bHpYrAljRLKmlzbmLHze6Dq2xoCk1YQAvD_BwE

Plastic is insidious in our society! From toilet roll to deodorant our daily routines are plagued by plastics.
This week I've been using @whogivesacraptp toilet roll who cover their toilet roll in paper and not plastics as well as donate 50% of their profits to build toilets.

I've also been using lush solid deodorant that works perfectly with no plastic container. https://uk.lush.com/products/aromaco

I also spotted another plastic free washing powder from Bio D. https://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/sourced-by-oxfam/home-and-gift/laundry-and-detergent/bio-d-non-bio-concentrated-washing-powder-1kg-hn401412?pscid=ps_ggl_shopping&gclid=CjwKCAiA07PRBRBJEiwAS20SIAzOZoPc8Ol3Gyza98RvItFzbk0X3xP3T8ZknAFjtaoHAoTR1E04ThoC92cQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CO-el6bFgNgCFSukUQod1DQA9Q

Just a few changes in our habits can dramatically reduce plastic in our society.

I have a proper hanky to reduce my plastic waste from pocket tissues. Living plastic free for a week has been easier than I thought...it's mostly been about changing habits.

This has been my favourite cost saving and #plasticfree find for #plasticfreeweek. These are soap nuts that replace washing powder and detergent, they cost about 5p for each wash and although they come in a plastic bag they are far better than bottles and pollution.

It wasn't that long ago that confectionary came in foil and paper....going to a sweet counter today, these seem to be your only plastic free choices. Keep following me, @greenameliawomack on my plastic free week here on Instagram as well as on Twitter @amelia_womack
