Happy Friday! Today we’re featuring another member of the #KindGoodsTribe and a very special KindSeller - the team at @paisley_pads 🌱Paisley creates fun, colourful, comfy reusable cloth menstrual pads, created to give women a choice and an alternative to standard sanitary products. Did you know that the average woman will use 12,000 to 16,000 disposable pads, panty-liners, and tampons in her lifetime. By using reusable cloth menstrual pads you are preventing all those pads/liners/ tampons from going into land fill! How great is that? 🌿 #KindGoods

Jett & her community have just planted out 180 trees along their local rail trail. Local heroes.

Meat production has a pretty hefty carbon footprint, in fact, it accounts for ⅓ of all global greenhouse gas emissions. Not to mention, all of the harmful effects meat can have on our health. We’re all about encouraging the small-steps, so that’s why the KindGoods team wants to challenge you to a meat-free day once a week. Get out those veggies and explore some new recipes. What’s your favorite vegetarian dish? #kindgoods 🌱 #kindgoodstribe

It's waste reduction week! Loved this display at #fcp very informative and eye grabbing. The stats regarding waste in today's world is horrific and we should all try to do at least one thing to help reduce it. Last week I pledged to pick up a piece of litter off of the streets a day thanks to @yourecofriend what are the ways you are trying to reduce your waste? #trashion #myfcpex #wastereductionweek

Today's challenge was :
W 10/18: Reduce your carbon footprint by walking, riding your bike, or carpooling.

4 miles due a friend joined me after work, for a ride in Terry Hershey park.
Total miles today: 11 miles thanks #justgrabbits for the challenge week.

Who wants to join us?

The plastic bag is finally going to be banned in Vic 👏👏👏 This is a step in the right direction... Although we have a long way to go, hopefully this makes people a little more mindful of their impact on the environment 🙏

Get your reusable bags, or shop somewhere that offers boxes! Dont wait for the ban to be actually put in place!
Reduce your footprint now 🐾🌏

I love the results from this activated charcoal toothpaste by @nelsonnaturals ❤️I've had it for a little over a week & my teeth were whiter after only a few brushes 😁I have really sensitive teeth so I'm happy there was an alternative to the dentist's whitening process & over the counter goods which make my teeth even more sensitive. I've also been using the @brush.naked toothbrushes for a while now &love them. They're so much better for the environment ❤️

They do it better…with renewable energy. Iceland may be small, but they’ve got the rest of the world beat with renewables. Just about 100% of Iceland’s energy produced for electricity is derived from a combination of hydropower and geothermal power. Making clever use of their unique geology, Iceland tops the world’s list as green energy producers!

What steps are you taking to reduce your footprint? Are any of these decomposition times especially surprising to you?, If so which one(s)?

Hey SOU! My name is Jenny and I am your Sustainability Coordinator Assistant! I'm one of the people behind this Instagram page. For the rest of this term, I'm going to be your foreign correspondent, if you will! I'm studying abroad in Lyon, France 🇫🇷 this term. I want to take you all on a virtual trip with me around the city as I find all sorts of neat ways this city is doing its part in becoming more sustainable :) Behind me here is a glass bottle recycling station ♻️There are bins like this all over the city and I see people here all the time bringing their bottles. There is one just outside of my apartment. Much like Ashland, residents of Lyon have to sort their commingled goods and glass. Stay tuned for more! .

Whether black or latte, we drink a lot of coffee. Americans alone consume a record number 400 million cups of coffee per day. That’s a lot of cups, which means it matters how we take our coffee. No, not if you take it with or without sugar, but what kind of cup you use. So here’s the tip: always choose reusable. Take a mug like this one by @keepcup with you for coffee on the go, or cozy up to a local, Fairtrade, shop and use one of their mugs. #KindGoods 🌱 #KindGoodsTribe

*The Bug House* I'm really excited to start this bug house to feed our chickens. We collect old veggies that are beyond useful, feed them to our bugs, watch their colonies grow and eventually harvest them. My dream is to reduce the amount of grain we use while boosting the nutrients in our already awesome eggs.
This house is made out 100% reused farm materials.

Happy Tuesday! Not sure if you guys are aware but it's Waste Reduction Week here in Canada, which is a campaign to open up the conversation and also provide information and resources around conscious consumerism, sustainability, and reducing waste from going into landfills. Each day this week is focused on a theme. Today is Textile Tuesday. The average person throws away 37 kilograms of textiles each year which is insane!!! Most of that can be reused or recycled.
Some of the ways I try to reduce my textile waste is be trying to buy used when I can, and if I do choose to buy new then I try to find timeless or capsule pieces that won't go out of style so I can hold on to them and wear them for years. I also do my best to choose items that are ethically made and sourced. It's not always easy which is why the majority of what I wear is second hand.
So let's start the conversation! What do you do with clothes you no longer need?

Idea #5: Hang Dry Your Clothes Hang drying your clothes is beneficial in many ways.
1. It saves tremendously on energy that would be used to tumble dry clothing
2. It saves money spent on energy used to tumble dry- or money spent at a laundromat
3. A significant portion of clothing these days is made of synthetic fibers which break down when exposed to heat. This means that little bits of polyester and the like are washed away every time we do laundry. Air drying helps decrease the wear on the clothing, thus leading to fewer microplastics entering the waterways.
4. Air drying is gentler on your clothing, which helps it last longer
5. Sun is a great way to "bleach" clothing. Sun exposure helps reduce visible stains and helps keep whites white!

Try it out with a clothes line or drying rack! #maketheswitch #reduceyourfootprint #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving
