Our #10YearChallenge? 🌍Until 2050 there will be more #plastic in our #oceans than fish, if we do not change our way of producing and using it. #onthisweek one year ago the first ever European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy was adopted. This will help protect our #environment, reduce #marinelitter, #greenhousegas emissions and our dependence on imported #fossilfuels. It will support more #sustainable and #safer consumption and production patterns for plastics We want to win the challenge! A lot still has to be done but the first step is taken! ♻️🇪🇺 #europeanunion #lowwaste #plasticreduction #recycle #nomoreplastic #nomorewaste #environmentaljustice #mycountryeurope

Wow! We have made it to 1000 followers!!!!! . We're so proud of what we have achieved, not only with our Instagram journey, but also with our day to day changes for a better us and a better world. . Our Instagram was born back in November 2017, a mere 8 months ago, and since then we've litter picked, homegrown, cooked, homemade, changed our cleaning habits, let go of lots of bad habits, tweeted, complained at companies,, discovered new companies and products all whilst driving our friends and partners crazy with continual plastic reduction nagging 😊. . The learning curve is never ending, but we're so happy to be enjoying our journey to continual plastic reduction. Thank you to all 1000+ of you followers for your continual support and ideas, we love this little (but ever growing) community and we can't wait to see what the next 1000 followers bring. . See our next post to see how we celebrated hitting the magic 1000. . #1000 #followers #thankyou #support #homemade #homegrown #shopping #plasticreduction #proud #habits #makethechange #takingresponsibility #bethechange #growth #celebration #nagging #learningcurve

I found a refill station for Ecover near me☺ This is my first #zerowaste washing up liquid refill and I was far too excited about it😂😂 . . When I first started on our #plasticreduction mission, it was easy to cut out some of the main offenders. Now, I'm down to the more stubborn bits and pieces and it's more challenging to find an eco solution. Ecover is a complete win. Good for the planet and now plastic free.🌍 . . It's not just about being plastic free. It also has to fit into my life. I can't go to 20 shops to source the best options and I'm also not in favour of getting everything online (air miles, road miles etc) But, I AM chipping away. ☺ @outofthisworldnottingham @ecover_uk . One small change. One big difference. . . #ecover #refill #zerowasteliving #zeroplastic #blueplanet #greenplanet #smallchanges #smallsteps #PassOnPlastic #conservation #educate #💚 #care #doitfordavid #outofthisworldnottingham #ecover

wastefreeplanet. Fathers day gift guide:
Reusable coffee mug,  another fantastic and us

Fathers day gift guide: Reusable coffee mug, another fantastic and useful gift. Repost @theplantbasedproteinproject ・・・ COFFEE CUPS — In the UK we throw away 2.5 BILLION coffee cups a year. BILLION. Less than 1 per cent get recycled and half a million (yep) cups are littered every single day. — Don’t be fooled, many coffee cups will say they can be recycled however there are 2 problems. 1. They never make it to recycling 2. The outer layer of the cup (the paper bit) is recyclable but the plastic polyethylene is not, that’s the bit that makes them watertight. — The real implications? These plastics take years and years and years to decompose. This results in tiny pieces of plastic scattered around our environment. Sadly the victims of this are mostly animals (not only, it gets into our drinking water too) think of the poor little hedgehog searching for food who ingests these or the small furry friend who gets stuck in a discarded cup and suffocates. This may seem quite aggressive and “preachy” if you like, but it’s got to stop! It’s one of the most simple things to do, nobody NEEDS disposable cups and if you really want them, at least don’t chuck them out of your car window into the hedgerow. Puhhhhhleeeez and thankya from your home, planet earth 😏 - Cup is @keepcup and I go nowhere without it, tres chic. . . . #keepcup #reusablecoffeecup #ecofriendly #bpafree #veganlifestyle #ecowarrior #theplantbasedproject #coffee #soylatte #2minutesolution #2minutebeachclean #waronplastic #plasticreduction #smallchanges #ecolife #fathersday #giftguide #zerowastegifts #zerowaste #australia #gifts

#tbt do dia que eu me senti muito bem em dizer "sem canudo, por favor". Passei mais de um ano me privando de tomar água de coco na praia ou recusando canudo nas bebidas geladas (porém sofrendo com minha sensibilidade nos dentes), por não querer usar canudo, já que era a única opção nos bares/festas de São Luís. Mas finalmente e graças a @auimauee (mulher maravilhosa que a oceanografia me apresentou) hoje eu sou uma mulher muito feliz com meu canudo de inox 💙 #vaiplaneta🌎 #noplastic #plasticreduction #nostraw #beegreenbr

Did you watch ABC Ch2's Q&A Monday night War on Waste episode if you live in Australia? My eyes were even more opened and my mind boggled by the facts presented on last night's Season 2 Ep1 of the War on Waste. I particularly found the section on bottled water very insightful. And was blown away by what a natural for TV was young Molly, Eco Warrior, (@strawnomoreproject) and her anti-straws campaign. Latest from our local library. Can't actually walk there myself at the moment but hopefully it won't be too long. Made it part way and back today. My reading list is the June National Geographic (yes I know, but it took a while to reach here) and a book I requested be ordered: Anita Vandyke's (@rocket_science ) A Zero Waste Life in Thirty Days. Should keep me busy in between exercising my new hip. #reducereuserecycle #waronwasteau #waronwasteaustralia #lowimpactliving #lowimpactlifestyle #towardszerowaste #thelowimpactmovement #plasticreduction #saynotosingleuseplastic #litteringisnotcool #youngecowarriors

Over here at Sweet Plvnts, we take waste reduction very seriously. We live in a time where big corporations are producing so many single use items that will outlive us. Their production emits toxic chemicals into our air and waterways and their working conditions do not align with our moral beliefs. Though it may not make a major impact for every day consumers to make the switch to a plastic free lifestyle, we try our hardest to reduce personal waste. Grab yourself a few of these essential for waste reduction! - Keep Cups: Grab one of these pals to tote around your favorite beverage! A mason jar also makes a great drink keeper! - Reusable Cutlery: Skip out on the plastic silverware and bring your lightweight bamboo set with you everywhere! - Reusable Straws: One of the easiest switch overs to pick up these days are metal or reusable straws! Skip the plastic and keep our sea life safe. (If you have a more accessible option for disabled folks, please drop some info in the comments!) - Cotton Grocery Bags: Forget about the single use paper and plastic bags and grab a few cotton bags to bring to the market or store with you! Cashiers are more than accommodating for this and most stores actually sell their own as well! Also please remember to support your local farmers and markets for ethically and locally sourced foods and goods! #PlasticFree #Reduce #Repair #Recycle #EcoWarrior #EarthLiberation #WasteReduction #PlasticReduction #EthicallySourced #SupportLocal #SweetPlvnts #RochesterNy #SaveThePlanet #GoVegan #ReusableBag #ReusableStraw #MasonJar #Bamboo

2nd change was to stop using bin liners. We swapped over to this bin which encourages you to recycle from @josephjoseph All our food waste goes into the compostable bag so the unrecyclable bin was clean. No need for an extra bag. #reduceplastic #reduseplasticwaste #plasticreduction #josephjoseph

#HappyFriday everyone - thought we'd kick off the weekend with a bit of inspiration. They say one person can only do so much, but if EVERYONE did their bit, however small the changes, we could make such a positive difference to our planet 🌎 What are some of your tips for reducing plastic waste in your day to day lives? We want to create a supportive community here on our social media, to help make the transition that bit easier for anyone getting started! One of ours, of course, is to switch to plastic free makeup and use existing containers to store your products! 💚 💻 link in bio!

Calling all #craftersofinstagram ! We're currently planning our wedding with the aim of being as #zerowaste as possible, I'm currently looking at decorations and have hit a stumbling block. I'd love to create some bits for the table #sealife ) but have very few creative bones in my body! I have some silicon baking moulds, but not actually sure if they're of any use. What is the best material to use for such things (plaster of paris/salt dough/something else) and also what kind of moulds are suitable.. and how would they be decorated/painted... Ok, maybe it's less of a stumbling block and more running into a brick wall... 🙈🙈🙈 Helllpppppp #weddingplanner #craft #art #makeyourown #weddingsofinstagram #instawedding #homemade #plastic_reduction #plasticreduction

Newest eco change I'm trying to make, shouldnt be a hard one. Taking a packed lunch to work. I never even went in the shop this morning which is rare. My new @planetwiseinc sandwich wrap is so cute and got a lovely sandwich I made in it and didn't have to wrap in any kind of single use plastic, reusing a Tupperware box (plastic I know but used over and over) I was able to pop in some loose nuts and dried fruit which I bought in large bags to reduce packaging. I also have unphotographed some chocolate bars stolen from OHs stash but I'll take the wrappers home to stick in my eco brick. And I found my metal straw in my bag that @my_ecojourney gave me. Along with a pile of single use plastic shot glasses Victoria!! 😂 They were saved from the bin at least but I didn't know they were in my bag. #ecofriendly #ecochanges #lifestylechanges #sandwichwrap #packedlunch #reducereuserecycle #plasticreduction #reduceplastic #metalstraw #savetheearth #happyearth #easychange #changinghabits

Said eight billion people!

Have you made a new year

#itsjustonestraw Said eight billion people! Have you made a new years resolution to reduce your plastic usage? Then join me. Each week I'll be sharing one plastic swap that I've made over the last year, in the hope that you too, might make this plastic swap. I've tried and tested many different methods and products, so joining me will take the hassle out of the process for you. In return for my tips, I'd love you to tag me in the pictures of your own plastic swaps, using the hashtag #itsjustonestraw. You don't need to join me in every swap, some may not suit you. But even a few small changes can have such a dramatic impact on our plastic use. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Plastic swap two: bar soap, one of my favourite swaps! First wait until you run out of hand soap and shower gel, then replace with bar soap, at every sink and shower in the house. Don't let old style soap bars put you off, there are some absolutely amazing companies out there. Who use beautifully luxurious ingredients that promise not to dry your skin. My two favourites are @conchuslife and @wildsageandco. If you use just one bottle of hand soap and one bottle of shower gel a month, that's 24 plastic bottles you could save in a year!!! My top tip for getting on with bar soap is to let it drain, place your soap in a dish with plenty of holes in it or stand it on few pebbles, to let it dry out after each use. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Who's with me? 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. #plasticfree #saveourseas #singleuseplastic #plasticreduction #barsoap
