Good morning good news 🙃 I love it when it's Mr P-R finding the news articles 🙂 good work @tescofood , let's hope it's fully backed by the consumer and rolls out across the country, we love our local #greengrocers and rarely use supermarkets but so often on this journey do I hear reason after reason for people struggling to walk away from supermarket shopping in favour of more sustainable produce, hopefully this will help no end 🙂 #mondaymotivation #supermarket #fruit #veg #goodnews #watford #swindon #plastic_reduction #plasticfree #plasticreduction #thereisnoplanetb #zerowasteliving #breakfreefromplastic #smallsteps #zerowaste full article here https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/mar/25/tesco-begins-plastic-free-trial-for-selection-of-fruit-and-veg @guardian

my_plastic_free_home. The Endangered African Penguin
•
In honour of Blue Planet Live I will

The Endangered African Penguin • In honour of Blue Planet Live I will be posting about the beautiful animals that are discussed through the week. • Over the last century African Penguin numbers have dropped by 99%. Largely due to overfishing of their prey (sardine and anchovy) and climate change affecting ocean temperatures. The penguins have migrated their breeding colony to adapt to these changes but unfortunately this meant that their young are not surviving. • Christine Hagen and her team have developed a Penguin Project in the west coast of South Africa to encourage a new penguin colony using decoy penguins. Early findings look positive but the outcome of this project are still unknown. • Amazing 📸: @emmett_sparling • Information taken from Blue Planet Live • #myplasticfreehome #blueplanetlive #africanpenguin 🌱💚🌍

Rice Rice Baby... 🍚 • I bought 10kg rice for £11:00 today at Tesco 🙌🏻. • If you buy rice in smaller bags then this baby is about half the price of the same weight. • If you buy microwave rice then it is up to 1/6th of the price! • Massive savings and reducing single use plastic 🙌🏻 what is not to love? 💚 • Now would anyone like a cup of rice? Feel free to pop round 😂 • 📸: credit to hubby who happily carried rice to the till. He thinks I’m a bit mad but still supports me. 💚 • This rice was from Tesco. Does anyone know where I can buy wholemeal pasta like this in the UK? I do not live near a bulk store so it would need to be a supermarket. • #myplasticfreehome 🌱💚♻️

The word natural is a really clever marketing too

N A T U R A L . . . The word natural is a really clever marketing tool, you see it on so many products that are chemical laden, it's almost lost it's true meaning. At The Green Bathroom, natural means no synthetic ingredients, starting with the colour in our products. We use minerals, clays and even beetroot powder to give our products a gentle colour. #natural #thegreenbathroom #thenoguiltbath #zerowaste #plasticfree #plasticreduction #saveourseas

Slow Sunday Mornings with turmeric lattes (& empowering mugs!) 🍶 . 🌿 Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory powers, and it’s been a sure helping hand to me during my marathon training. I (somehow) managed 28.2km yesterday (yes the .2 counts very much!) so I’m very much in need of some turmeric today- alongside my sports massage in a couple hours 💆🏼‍♀️ .🌿 This bright orange friend is known for more than just its colour, it’s also host to a whole range of other health *claims* such as: increasing the antioxidant capacity of the body, improving brain function, lowering your risk or heart disease, preventing and treating Alzheimer’s, preventing cancer, depression, arthritis and other chronic diseases. Maybe it’s a little more than just a millennial trend! 🌿 #plasticfree #ecofriendly #sustainableliving #plasticwrap #plasticreduction #plasticfreesupermarket #sustainableswaps #wastefreeplanet #wastefree #wastefreeliving #plantbasedlifestyle #bestofnetherlands #netherlands #tumericlatte #vegantreats #slowsunday #bestofvegan #eatingwelleats #yumvegantreats #vegansoflondon #girlssupportgirls #girlssupportinggirls #girlpower #mugshot

Changing the world, one toothbrush at a time. 📡We use around 4 toothbrushes, or toothbrush heads a year. That's around 320 in our lifetime. Imagine all of them in a pile in your back garden: 320 pieces of hard plastic that will never break down. But here's the shift...... This little cuty may never even use one. 😁😁 That's because he'll never have to switch. A compostable bamboo toothbrush will be his normal.

Mein heutiger Einkauf mit vielen (für meinen Geschmack zu vielen) Plastiksünden 😢 Bei manchen Dingen ist es immer noch schwer vor Ort etwas besseres / plastikfreie zu finden. Öl zum Beispiel gibt es zwar in Glasflaschen, aber auch das sind Einwegflaschen und noch unökologischer als Plastikflaschen. Einen Unverpacktladen haben wir leider auch nicht in der Nähe. Mein Kompromiss ist es deshalb Hülsenfrüchte in großen Mengen im türkischen Market zu kaufen. Brot backe ich für gewöhnlich selber. Heute gibt es aber Döner und dafür habe ich vom Markt kleine Fladenbrot mitgebracht. Ich habe ehrlich gesagt noch nie Fladenbrot selber gemacht. Die gekauften sind aber leider auch alle einzeln in Plastik verpackt. Das wäre für mich vielleicht der nächste Vorsatz: Fladenbrot selbst backen. #vegan #veganfoods #veganforanimals #veganlife #veganereinkauf #plasticreduction #plastikfrei #plasticfree #zerowaste #lesswaste #wochenmarkt #marktgemüse #markt #markteinkauf

S W A P 🌱 • Safety Razor • A few people have asked me about using safety razors over disposable razors so I thought I would share my thoughts on them 💭 • They really sound a lot scarier than they actually are. Both myself and hubby have been using a safety razor for a while now. • Before using the safety razor I had two major concerns: 1. Will I cut myself? 2. Will I get as close a shave with just one shave? • When hubs had his first shave with the razor he did come out of the bathroom with a couple of nicks, but that is all the damage that has occurred. He now regularly shaves with the razor and has no issues. I use the razor as I normally would use a disposable and I haven’t had any nicks 🙌🏻 • What surprised me most was the quality of the shave. As there is only one blade this is what I was sceptical about. I needn’t have been. Using a safety razor gives you the closest, irritation free shave. Absolutely no razor burn or irritation when the hair begins to grow back. • I initially used a common type of sterling silver razor and one piece of feedback about that razor would be that when your hands are full of shaving suds it can feel a little slippery, which is a little worrying 😬. I was lucky enough to get my mitts on this hexagon razor by @muehle_uk in a competition and this feels like a much sturdier razor. As well as having a better grip it is absolutely stunnning! • On reflection I would therefore say, a safety razor is 100% worth the swap. I can’t believe how long I’ve been hacking away at my skin with cheap plastic razors when these have been available! It is also a good idea to shop around for a razor that you love as it is the only one you are going to buy! (Just replace the blades) • - Zero plastic - Cheaper overall - Less irritation • An amazing swap 🙌🏻 • Who else loves the safety razor? • #myplasticfreehome 🌱💚♻️

We met with the incredible @strawbystraw in Amsterdam last week at the @impacthubams . 🌿 Straw by Straw blew my mind! Did you know these straws actually grow like this? They are a bi-product of agriculture, and are seen as waste, so usually farmers set light to fields of these natural straws. Straw by Straw is therefore not only reducing plastic straws BUT ALSO reducing air pollution from the disposal of this natural product!👏🏼 .🌿 The impact hub is a place which hosts a network of entrepreneurs & innovators all working to find solutions to society’s biggest challenges. They’re guided by the Sustainable Development Goals, and the impact hub has people working across all sectors! There are lots of incredible startups coming out of this, and StrawbyStraw is one of them! (it’s also a great example of a building which has been up scaled into something new!) . 🌿 #plasticfree #ecofriendly #sustainableliving #plasticwrap #plasticreduction #plasticfreesupermarket #sustainableswaps #wastefreeplanet #wastefree #wastefreeliving #plantbasedlifestyle #bestofnetherlands #plasticstraws #plasticstrawssuck #amsterdam #netherlands #amsterdam_streets #TopAmsterdamPhoto #amsterdamworld #amsterdamvibe #amsterdamgram #sustainabledevelopmentgoals @sdgsclub

Little late for #trashlessthursday because I had a very busy day yesterday, but today in want to talk about totebags. These bags are super handy and i seem to get them everywhere for free or a few euro's 😂 i use them to put fruit and veggies in when i go to the store or give them as a bag when i have to give something to my friends. Oftentimes they are made of recycled materials and they are very durable. So next time you get one of these, pimp it up and see where you can exchange a plastic bag for a reusable one!!! ~ #totebag #reusablebag #notrash #savetheoceans #oceans #h&m #handm #fruit #ecological #durable #sustainable #sustainablility #sustainablelife #noplanetb #shopping #bags #bag #plasticreduction #hmconvious #hm

P L A S T I C S W A P 1 1 . . . . #itsjustonestraw See the previous ten swaps on my grid. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Plastic swap 11: the good old flannel! One of my fondest memories of my beautiful Nana, is her taking a flannel in a bag to every picnic. She knew her stuff did my Nana! I use these fabulous cotton cloths to remove make up, as an alternative to wet wipes (in a wet wipe box, dampened with essential oils) as an alternative to cotton wool and I even have one that I use for nail varnish remover. I have a set of ten that I use, then pop in with my washing, they've been going strong for over a year now. I purchased mine from Amazon and they were really inexpensive. I've saved myself the cost of cotton wool, wet wipes and face wipes for the past year, plus the plastic that they all contian/come packaged in. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow the hashtag #itsjustonestraw and you'll never miss a post. If you have friends who are looking to reduce their own plastic usage, please tag them in this post or share it on your own account. A huge thank you for your support with this and the previous swaps. #plasticfree #saveourseas #singleuseplastic #plasticreduction #refuserecyclereuse #zerowaste

We love our pets, but they are a million miles away from being zero waste, which is why I love little victories as they're so few and far between.

I am sharing this because reducing plastic should be easy, and we can’t make fancy pants treats all of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I love a fancy treat! But it just isn’t realistic in my house every week. • You can whip these up quicker than the time it would take you to make an emergency pit stop at the shop. • Also, you don’t need to let a crumb go to waste! I bake every last bit and use the crumbs as a dessert topping (or hubby just nicks them before I get the chance) • Let me know if you give these a go! • #myplasticfreehome 🌱💚♻️

Is it weird that tip #14 is one of my favorites!?! 🧼 It is economical and keeps you clean- bars of soap!! 🧼🧼🧼 In anticipation of the naysayers claiming too many germs are left on the soap, I did a little reading last night and I recommend you do the same. The number one tip I read was- make sure your bar sits in a drying tray and just rinse it off before you use it if you’re worried about “previous” germs. SO easy! No need to spend money on expensive wasteful plastic soap containers anymore. Get your bubbles on with bars of soap! 💦 . . . . #reducewaste #reducereuserecycle #plasticreduction #barsofsoap #soapbars #ecofriendly #getclean #bubbles #refuse #nomoreplastic

On my own journey of plastic reduction, I stopped using bubble bath, beacuse I couldn't justify the plastic bottle, but I missed my bath products.

Little things please little minds? 😉 but on the other hand, every little helps, and I certainly celebrate the small wins and find happiness in the small acts of kindness we do for our planet. & just think... if every bouquet of flowers came without plastic wrap, that’s a whole lot of plastic wrap we’d save! . 🌿 #plasticfree #ecofriendly #sustainableliving #plasticwrap #plasticreduction #plasticfreesupermarket #sustainableswaps #wastefreeplanet #wastefree #wastefreeliving #worldhappinessday #worldhappinessreport2019 #happiness2019 #roffa #rottergram #plantbasedlifestyle #bestofnetherlands #ig_rotterdam #thenetherlands🇳🇱 #igholland #rotterdamcity #htsptrotterdam
