I’ve seen a similar quote about zero-waste floating around but I’m unsure who to credit??? This little quote contains so much TRUTH that I simply had to adapt it for zero-plastic and share it around. If we ALL do our bit, as best as we possibly can, we WILL make a difference 💚🌏

Foundations for Firebath
(Think moonlit night, hot tub and a lovely glass of home made wine) 💚
Being in the rental market in Australia most often means having the expense of electric facilities such as hot water systems and electric cookers as most rentals are on mains power and rarely offer solar or gas options.
And electricity here has become very expensive, especially since members of our current (rancid) government have vested interest in the coal industry 🙄
So.... BRiNG ON THE FIREBATH!!!
I may not get this completed before l leave again for East Timor, but knowing it's only a 1 day job to line the fire pit and build the stone footings ..... Coming back to the colder months here is going to be far more appealing 🦎

Finally getting round to posting about these gorgeous babies!!! They haven’t left my bag since they arrived and the wrap-bag has enough room to hold a number of metal straws. Honestly I’m hoping that one day we get a black set too 😍😍😍. •
I’m not perfect, sometimes I forget I’m using plastic straws when eating out just out of habit, but thankfully plastic cutlery is less common in my area (unless it’s summer, coastal areas somehow decide that that’s the time to use so much unnecessary plastic) but carrying these around make it so much easier.

What’s the difference between the two sizes of snack bags? 🤔
The small snack bag is approx 10cm x 10cm, making it perfect for biscuits, small oranges, dried fruit or nuts.
The large snack bag is 15cm x 15cm, which means it’s great for two or three pieces of fruit, a juice box, a snack bar or a combination of all of the above! .
You can order the large bag here: and the small bag here: or pop me a message for more information 💜

ECO IDEA #22: STOP! BEFORE YOU TOSS
Before throwing something away, ask yourself: can it be fixed, repurposed or gifted to someone else? We live in a throw away society where it’s often cheaper or more convenient to replace things when they are no longer shiny and new. But this is not good for the planet, our only home! Take a little extra time and fix it if you can, or give it to someone else who can use it. If you can think of another use for it, repurpose it! For example old socks with holes in them make great cleaning rags if you cut them down the middle. Another example, most food containers from the grocery store make great storage for bulk food purchases. The more we use what we have instead of buying new things the better for our planet!

Happy Friday, everyone! A few tips ago I shared that carpooling with friends is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, but so is taking public transportation! The trains busses, etc. are going to perform their normal routes, no matter how many people are on them, so why not join? The more people that take public transportation, the more eco-friendly the choice is because the same amount of resources are being used for a larger number of people. It’s also important to note that not everyone has access to public transportation and that is okay! If you happen to have the financial means to take public transportation and it is easily accessible, it can be a great option to lower your ecological footprint! Have a great weekend 🌻🌱

Here is my #tobereadlist for the next few months.
🔸 Berlin Alexanderplatz by Alfred Doblin --Franz Biberkopf just got out of prison for murdering his girlfriend and is determined to make a fresh start. But fate and circumstance seem to be against him as he keeps on shifting from doing legal to illegal work. Since this novel explores the personal and societal effects of violence, the thread of political unrest can be sensed throughout the story.
🔸 The Chalk Circle Man by Fred Vargas -- Trails of bizarre objects with blue chalk circles around them begin to appear throughout Paris. Detective Commissaire Adamsberg is convinced that there is something cruel that lies beneath these trails. Soon, a body of a woman turns up with blue chalk around her.
🔸Milkman by Anna Burns -- A novel that explores the pressure put on society under a police state. Set in the 1970s in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, an unnamed narrator finds herself targeted by a high-ranking dissident known as the milkman.
🔸 The Bird and Other Stories by Daphne du Maurier -- this is a collection of eerie short stories that explores man's place in the natural world.
On a completely different note, aside from frequenting thrift stores and consignment stores, I'm always on the lookout for sustainable and eco-friendly fashion brands that are of quality (less is more).
Poppy Barley @poppybarley is a sustainable and eco-friendly shoe company based in Canada that focuses on creating ethically crafted products.
My fashion style is functional and classic. Rarely do I shop unless there is something I have to replace. My feet are picky. This pair of shoes is perfect and very comfortable. ❤
Q1: Are you an environmentally-conscious consumer? What are some sustainable and eco-friendly fashion brands that you recommend?
Q2: How do you plan your reading?

Introducing Kalika Wrap @kalika.wrap, a social enterprise that produces and sells beeswax wrap, an alternative to plastic wrap. When the founders came back to Indonesia, they were very concerned with the impact of plastic pollution in Indonesian cities and started to switch to zero waste lifestyle. After searching and experimenting with a lot of alternatives to single use plastic, they found beeswax wrap as a good substitute to plastic wrap. However, in Indonesia, beeswax wraps are very expensive as they have to be imported from abroad. With a purpose to make this alternative product more affordable for many people, they started to turn their personal experiment into a business.
Kalika’s beeswax are sourced from local farmers in the forest of Sumatra and Flores. They chose to partner with local farmers as their harvesting practice is more sustainable. By not harvesting the whole beehive, the farmers are keeping bees population in that area, while at the same time protecting the forest and the ecosystem. This story is reflected in Kalika’s logo.
The founders provide the beeswax wraps in a set, consists of various sizes, so they can easily be a part of a family’s daily life. The wraps are also decorated with colorful pattern to change people’s mindset that eco-friendly products are boring. In addition, they use a reusable recycled carton for the packaging so their customers can reuse the packaging.
In the future, Kalika Wrap will keep developing and expanding their products so more people can afford them and can switch to a more sustainable lifestyle. .

Introducing Higea Indonesia @higea_id, an online shop that sells various menstrual products, including menstrual cup. It is very interesting to learn that the man behind Higea Indonesia established the business to help women go through their menstrual cycle by offering alternatives. He thinks that by redefining women’s period experience, women can embrace their menstrual cycle differently and be more productive. .
In Indonesia, only menstrual pads are easily accessible. Instead of using disposable menstrual pads that have a lot of chemicals and are harmful to the environment, Higea Indonesia offers women an ecological, economical and convenient alternative, which is menstrual cup. Higea Indonesia is the official stockist of two of the most high quality menstrual cups, The DivaCup and Lunette Cup. Both cups are made from medical grade silicone so they are safe to use. .
The founder of Higea Indonesia seeks to fight period taboo and would like to change the society so the discussion on menstrual issues will be more acceptable. He has a vision where in the future, Indonesian women will not be ashamed of their monthly cycle and can buy menstrual products freely. Currently, he plans to make menstrual cup a more common option by putting the products in convenience store. He also would like to improve Higea Indonesia’s packaging because he cannot find other alternative to bubble wrap to keep his products safe. So, if you have any idea on how to make the packaging more sustainable, feel free to comment or send Higea Indonesia a message!

We’ve talked about this before but this is too good not to share again! You can easily regrow your vegetables by placing the top of them in water just like this! Thanks for sharing your way of doing this @aimeebourque
Wow we have just read that apparently 1/3 of the food we eat is made possible by these wonderful creatures!
Let’s do what we can to protect them. Has anyone got some handy hints that we can share?

We couldnt agree more!
I know I love talking about sustainability and when I decided to post this pic I honestly just wanted to 'praise my great efforts' in creating less waste and being more environmentally conscious.
HOWEVER, I also have to be conscious of my privileged position of being ~able~ physically and financially to buy in bulk, organic foods.
I understand that many, people here in Australia (and the majority overseas) do not have the ability to support a family AND buy in bulk and/or organic.
In reality, when we talk about the zero waste and plastic free movement we try our best to create inclusivity but we know that as things stand now, being zero waste is not an option for many who struggle to make ends meet.
This doesn't invalidate our efforts but it's important to check our privilege and make sure we can inform and be inclusive as much as we can.
After all, being zero waste is not about consumerism but about living frugally and consciously of how much we need to care for our environment.
Do you feel like the these kinda movements are excluding other? Would you like to learn more about how to live zero waste frugally/cheaply?

Well, here you are- my very own make up remover in a old kombucha bottle!👍🏼 I was thinking of using coconut oil but my optometrist didn’t approve. Then I tried jojoba oil, which wasn’t the best either- my eyes felt heavily oiled. So, I ended up making a solution that consists of:
- 2 tbsp jojoba oil
- 2 tbsp witch hazel
- 2 tbsp water
I recently learned that it’s best to keep natural recipes either in the fridge or an amber glass bottle so it can keep the solutions fresh and protect the active botanical ingredients from UV rays.🌻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try to buy ingredients in glass bottles! Now you’re saving the earth by reusing vs. buying single use products. Happy DIY-ing 🌎 ♻️
