Often at summer barbecues and other large parties, disposable dishes and cutlery are used. I have decided to promote zero/low waste and bring my own. I went to a friend's barbecue on Saturday and brought a mason jar for drinks, a Pyrex container to use as a dish, and a fork. My husband also was inspired by this and asked me to pack him a ZW kit too. The friends who hosted this BBQ do wash and reuse the disposable plastic stuff, but sometimes it cracks (and I saw people throwing out dishes anyway :( ) and also I want to get into the habit of bringing my own dishes for parties since most hosts don't reuse, and maybe it can inspire someone else. Here are some photos of my ZW kit in action and some of the delicious food and drinks from the party. We did get a few questions about it from friends. And also, here's what I brought to the BBQ...two kinds of veggie burgers, baby bella mushrooms, and my famous mojitos. All were finished off by the guests. It was so easy and inexpensive to bring this in a tote bag, and anyone can do it. We had an awesome time at the party catching up with old friends who we haven't seen in a while. Next time you get invited to a party, consider making it easier on your friends and the planet and bring your own dishes! #zerowaste#lesswaste#reducereuserecycle#reusable#bringyourown#ecofriendly#environment#climatechange#sustainability#vegetarian#whatvegetarianseat#summer#barbecue#bbq#party#latergram

Plastic Free July Day 23: Gettin my meat on! Sorry any veggos out there 😱! Stocking up for a week of warming winter casseroles with a trip to my local butcher. Beef was grass fed and chicken was free range #babysteps Butcher kindly let me use my own containers although some of the other customers gave me strange looks. My containers went into a reusable bag that I have marked purposely for meat transport; thus allowing for frequent washes and no risk of other produce coming into contact with any accidental juice leaks. #noplastichere#plasticfree#plasticfreejuly#shoplocal#beef#grassfedbeef#winterwarmers#bringyourown
For us, living mindfully means cutting down our impact on the earth. We'll be sharing ways to reduce our waste every week with #sustainablesaturday ! First tip: When I get bagels to go, I either bring my #seatosummit collapsible container or muslin bag. Knowing I can enjoy my favorite things without producing extra trash makes them taste even better! These small changes do make a difference over time - what are your favorite simple sustainability switches?
YELLOW CURRY WITH TOFU!!! 💛🌻💛 This is my favorite food of all time (and the namesake of this account) and it's been so long since I've had it!
I had some time to kill in Woodland Hills after orientation for my new job (woo😁) so I went on the @happycowguide app and found this little place called The Vegan Joint! 🌿
They had so many dishes I wanted to try but it's been sooo long since I've had good Thai food, and I've NEVER had great vegan Thai tea so that was an amazing unexpended treat! 🍹
I also anaged to fit my leftovers in my stainless steel tiffin I carried my lunch in earlier that day, but unfortunately the server forgot that I asked for the tea with no straw /: Just goes to show you that it's impossible to be perfect! But I am not discouraged, I just know that I need to make my intentions more clear the next time I go out♻️🌎 Check out @theveganjoint if you're ever in the LA area!
#ClimateChange is real. We must do what we can to reverse it's effects. Or at least lessen our negative contribution. Whatever we decide to do, we must act on it now.
#PlasticFreeJuly isn't a fad created just so we can tell the whole world we're doing something for the environment, then go back to our wasteful selves after the month is over. It is something that could help jump start a revolution inside our hearts, wherein everyone who truly cares for our future would go back to the basics and make sacrifices for a much greater cause. And that cause is saving our planet. Helping nature thrive once again.
We can do so much by doing so little.
What a great evening!!! Thanks @lumanationmusic for an awesome reggae set! And thank you to our concert sponsor @redwolflakesidelodge and our amazing series sponsors for making Music on the Beach rock steady 🤙🏼 #bringyourown#kbtahoe#musiconthebeach

Desde 1950 hemos generado 8,300 millones de toneladas de plástico y solo un 9% de esta cifra se recicla. 🌎🚮⚠ Muchos hemos nacido en una cultura de lo desechable que ya ni nos enteramos que nuestros hábitos están haciendo tanto daño al planeta. Pero como cualquier cambio...empieza con 1 🙋:
- 1 pajilla menos
- 1 bolsa plástica menos
- 1 bote con agua menos
La próxima compra que hagas evalúa que cambios puedes hacer para decidirte por la opción más eco amigable 🤔
You're looking for some outdoorsy festival essentials where you can transport your food and drinks sustainable?! Then go and check out my new post on the blog (only in German for now, but these two are part of my essentials) ➵ #linkinbio | the other parts are coming soon! #bringyourown#sustainable
When you clean out your handbag and it's low key a landfill site 😖 I have no idea how long some of this stuff has been at the bottom of my bag but at least I can see where I need to refuse landfill waste! Receipts: I could refuse receipts. Often the cashier still prints them and then places them in their bin. I'm not sure how to resolve this. A smashed lipstick: I haven't bought make up since September 2016 and I don't plan to buy any more (which will be hard coz I don't always feel comfortable with the face I was born with). Quick-eze wrappers: I was asked to eat these before donating plasma. If I didn't eat them I couldn't donate :( A donate plasma sticker: I could have refused it. Produce sticker and a sticker from work: easy to avoid. Freddo wrapper: could have refused that! Visitor sticker: I find this hard to avoid as when I visit children at schools, I am required to print off a visitors sticker despite having my own proper badge. Codral blister pack: from ages ago, easy to avoid. Silica pack: not sure what that is from but somewhat easy to avoid for the most part! If anyone has any ideas for ways I could refuse/reuse/responsibly disposed of anything pictured, please let me know! 🌿😊
