I love his pic by @pureplanetau. These beautiful animals along with all the others that our amazing planet has to offer is why we are so passionate about our family business. Working towards a single use plastic ban and doing our part to pressure our suppliers to reduce their plastic use and reuse where possible. Look at this beautiful little guy, and to think that there will be more plastic in our ocean than fish in less than 10 years! Crazy!
Still buzzing for these guys!!
Massive congratulations to the Functional Strength / IA team for coming FIRST in Australasia! 🥇💪
They are now off to the Crossfit Games in Madison Wisconsin to compete on the world stage amongst the best.
They will be joined by Crossfit East Tamaki who also had an outstanding performance over the weekend.
So proud of our fellow KIWIS! 😃
50% of what we throw away is actually organics. 😮🤔😕. If you live or work in St. Paul, you can sign up for the Macalester-Groveland Organics Collection project's drop off site for FREE. I've been signed up for almost six months, and I'm finally getting serious about it. Thanks to @summitbeer's #backyardbash in collaboration with @eurekarecyclingmn, @whubbard2 and I know what #zerowaste can look like, and we're ready to be a #zerowastehousehold .
And if you think about how long our kids wear their clothes for, there really is no reason why we can't reuse, handdown or buy secondhand ::: it really is that simple ::: thanks to @rethread.eco the pic ⚡️
We are on the road today doing pickups. Please get in touch if we can add you or your business to our list! What treasures will we save from the bin today? These goodies are making their way to the sorting room - thank you to a lovely supporter who saved them from the skip bin of her recent house build for us!
Sometimes I get all gussied up, and I put my dang fancy boots on. Forever a vintage treasure. I must have floral embroidery on the brain today between this and my last post. Paired with a Biba dress! Huzzah! .
Vintage rules, y'all. Older clothing is so special. Not only has it traveled through the decades, but it has a soul. It's been loved and lived in. And it's a great way to not contribute to a lot of the mass manufactured clothing that's being made today which might not even last a year, let alone 50! I'll always feel most comfortable in something that's had a groovy life long before it got to me. Not to mention something that will end up cherished forever and not dumped in a landfill. Hands up if you love vintage too! 👋🏼💕🙌🏼 #reducereuserecycle
Hey y'all! This Memorial Day marks the first #obx5minutebeachcleanup ♻️
Inspired by @5minutebeachcleanup, this account is to motivate and inspire all beachgoers (both locals and visitors) to spend 5 minutes picking up trash every time they visit a beach in the Outer Banks (both ocean and sound side). Regularly held contest winners for the most amount, most creative, etc, will win prizes from some of our AWESOME local OBX businesses that we all love! Tag #obx5minutebeachcleanup on your posts to get featured - EVERY tag will be reposted to celebrate the difference we can make! This pile of trash was collected before I could even get out of the parking lot! And more was picked up on the way to the garbage cans and recycling bins! Imagine if every person in the parking lot had spent 5 minutes picking up trash - I promise, it makes a difference 💙🌊 Plastic water bottles, cigarette butts, plastic straws, plastic bags, and plastic wrappers were my most found items today - let's commit to cleaner beaches this summer! Whoo hoo! Happy holiday weekend everybody!! ❤️💙🇺🇸

The smalls steps you take to make a change in your everyday might seem like they don't matter when you see what other people do (or don't), but when we all make small steps it might be what saves humanity from destroying our home planet earth in the end.
Replace your single use water bottle with a reuseable one. Do the same with your coffee cup. Say no to a plastic bag when you shop. Pick up 1 piece of litter once in a while. Encourage your neighbours to recycle a bit more. Skip the straw next time you have a coke. And maybe get it in a glass bottle instead of a plastic bottle.
Combined with a 50% off sale, these pants from @sevenforallmankind7 and @luckybrand came in under $7 at @salvationarmyus . One of their programs is Veterans Services which is important to remember on this Memorial Day. #memorialday#thrifting#reducereuserecycle#conservation
And you get some almond milk! And you get some almond milk! And you get some almond milk! Just kidding, I'm not sharing.
@bambambroth and @bubbiespickles glass jars are my favorites to #reducereuserecycle #♻️
Honored that I've been chosen as @acoloradogal's #justanoutdoorgal for the month of May.
While I often struggle how to put into words the how's and why's of my actions, the article perfectly represents how my love of running and the environment coincides.
Thank you Heather and Anagha for sharing my story and more important, reminding others the importance of conservation! #linkinbio
We found this little guy while we were cleaning up #rubbish in #costadeleste . Sad but reaffirming. So much #styrofoam and #plastic ! I knew it was going to be bad but it was still shocking... 2 hours, a child's bicycle, car parts, countless shoes, several doll's heads and 50 big bags of #garbage later the beach looked a lot better but we still have a long way to go. Still better than nothing... 📷 @steffitthe
Composting is the natural process of recycling organic material such as vegetable scraps into a rich soil. It's best to compost raw fruits and vegetables that would otherwise be throw away (ex. peel from your potato). 🥔🍐 Composting scraps means less in our landfills which is better for our environment and future! 🌎
