Ever heard of White Monday? I first heard about this concept today, which is a bit late since it was yesterday, but I want to share it with you guys anyway.
•••
White Monday is a concept created to oppose Black Friday. Black Friday takes place this upcoming Friday, although many stores have dedicated the whole week to it, and this puts a lot of stress on both individuals, stores and the environment.
•••
Consumers are shopping more and more since things have become so cheap that they can’t resist it, even if they neither need it or even want it. •••
The stores in turn must join in on this extreme consumption “holiday” otherwise they will lose customers to competing stores. Some smaller stores also sell things at a loss just to be able to offer low prices.
•••
So, I ask of you, if you are going to partake in the Black Friday hysteria, to use your head and shop intentional. Do you need this? Do you even want this? Will this make you happier?

Spreading the good vibes throughout the pantry - where my culinary wishes come to life with good intention and love.
💗
I chose these words to remind me of the importance of our connection to food.
💗
When we got this metal rack from Costco last year, it came with these safety tags made of hard plastic that clip on and off. I immediately looked at them and had the idea to reuse!
💡
Ever since I was very young I have had a hard time throwing away things that could be reused or up-cycled.
💓
And so, thanks to some washi tape I had in the basement and a sharpie, voila!

🌍ZERO WASTE🌍
Hoy os enseño la Ducheta que Pusimos en el Baño de mi Hija. Adiós al Papel Higiénico! No Tener que Tirar Árboles al WC es Genial. La Cantidad que se Tira por Persona y Año es de Locos, y la Cantidad de Plástico que dejas de Comprar es considerable.Hace Meses Descubrimos Este Sistema y que Mucha Gente Utilizaba, y nos Lanzamos al Reto de Cabeza. Estamos Encantados. Ni que Decir que las Visitas no Tendrán que Utilizar este Sistema. Os Animo a Ello #ourplanetourhome #noplastic

GREEN GOLD ✨
Our last farmer's market haul was very green (not only eco friendly I mean haha). The rest is history (you've seen our meal prep already haven't you)
The only plastic we couldn't avoid were two stickers on the avocados (the unnecessary stickers, oh well!). Quick reminder to self: it's really not about being perfect, but doing my best. Every change counts!

EN: My home made soap is green and smells with Christmas! It’s gonna be a perfect zero waste gift! 🎁
.
PL: Wyciągnęłam kilka niedzielnych mydełek z formy. Myslalam, ze nie stwardnieją, budyń wyszedł dość rzadki, ale jest idealnie 👌🏻😉 Ten zielony, lekko choinkowy kolor to #spirulina 💚Do mydełek dodałam świąteczne olejki, czyli jak dla mnie: cynamon i sosna (choć Wasze propozycje aromatów tez mnie natchnęły!) oraz trochę oliwy na zimno, dla wzmocnienia właściwości odżywczych w trakcie mycia. Teraz 4 tygodnie dojrzewania i ... będą prezenty! 🎁

Z mydeł, które robicie albo znacie - które są Wasze ulubione? Co musza mieć w składzie, żeby było najlepsze dla skóry?

What does celery have to do with bread? Absolutely NOTHING. But, you can keep your bread fresh longer by sticking a stalk of celery inside the bread bag. Yet another really weird way to avoid food waste. How did people discover this trick? They must have had toddlers 'helping' to put the groceries away.⠀

Finishing Monday night strong with some zerowaste tea during my studies. 🍵 📝

Organic & locally grown loose leaf tea that I bought at the Victoria Gardens market (in a glass jar that I will reuse).🚯
.
Loose leaf tea infusers (not sure where we got these but you can just put the tea directly into the boiling water and you have the option to strain once done).🕸️
.
Honey from my favorite bee keepers. (Jerry and Jenny who are usually at Victoria gardens market on Fridays and both the Saturday and Sunday markets in Riverside).🐝
.
I steep the tea twice two get the most out of the leaves and compost when done.🌱
.
Simple, sweet, good for me and the planet. It's a win, win, win. 💚

Always practice what you preach, you never know who’s watching.....
Recently, through class lessons about the environment, I opened up to my students about my Zero Waste lifestyle. They have been curious, but supportive at the same time. Just today, one student reminded me to use my mason jar instead of a napkin. Another student gave me this reusable coffee sleeve with biodegradable packaging as a “Thanksgiving gift”. Their minds are so sharp, it’s mind blowing! I am so grateful 🌎 #ourplanetourhome #consciousliving #trashisfortossers #plasticfree #greenliving #sustainability

Making your own tortillas is fun, plus they taste better than the store bought kind. And of course: they're #Plasticfree 😍 I always make a little extra to freeze for a lazy day ❄️😉

Got herbs? You should do, they go wonderfully in a stiff drink. And who doesn't need a stiff drink on a Monday?! Keep them fresher for longer by storing them in glass jars with a bit of water at the bottom. WATER, not vodka. That comes later. (Pic by Lily Lvnatikk via Unsplash)

Slow down, dine in and relax. Refuse to give in to a culture that forces us to do what is convenient over what is right and what makes sense for our environment and ourselves.

A croissant was the only #zerowaste snack in the airport. And yes I grabbed it right from the display case with my bare hand. 🤚 Swipe right to see the shameful plastic wrapped apples. 😒 I'm so glad I brought our apples from Eastern Market.

Check out this cool bookmark I'm cross-stitching! Once done it's going to be the ultimate waste free Christmas gift.

Giving homemade gifts, whether ones you’ve made or ones you’ve purchased from a local market, is a great way to reduce plastic wastes from cheap and unwanted gifts. If you make your own it can also save money and be a fun way to fill up your free time (#Netflix and #stitch anyone?). If you’re not the crafty sort consider checking out local Christmas Craft Fairs (tis the season 🎄🎍) to purchase eco-friendly gifts made by local artisans. I find gifts from craft fairs are often more meaningful, don’t come in plastic packaging, and are way more unique then any big box store item will ever be!

To-do lists make my heart beat a little faster. I'm the type of freak who adds things to my daily to-do list that have already been completed, purely so I can have the pleasure of checking them off. ✅I also put things like "shower" and "wake up" on my to-do lists because there is no greater satisfaction than checking an item off a list. I'm not even kidding. So deeply unsexy. 🤓Anyway! Lists can help you do anything, including tackle food waste. When you add stuff to your freezer, also add the item and date to a running list. Every time you use something from the freezer, cross it off. You'll know what food you need, what you've got, and when you need to use it by. And that's #thepoweroflists.

Had the best time at the festival along the Murray River this weekend. As glass was banned (and no plastic bottles sold!) I took along this guy that I found at an antique store. Saved me from wasting tonnes of plastic cups and also scored me extra drink by confusing servers 👍🏼

Saving the seeds from a pumpkin makes a delicious, zerowaste snack 😋 I admit, it's a bit of work but totally worth it.
1) remove seeds from the pumpkin flesh as good as possible
2) soak overnight in water
3) clean and rinse them the next day
4) spread on a baking sheet, sprinkle with oil and salt and roast in the oven until they are nice and crunchy (~30 minutes)
