Because sometimes you just need a good reminder of how far you've come.
I deep cleaned my car and found some of these - something I used to buy regularly :/ I even had a good friend call me out on it once and I justified it as ok because, after all, it was for my health. Lol. Really, Liv, really ??? Sometimes the stories we tell ourselves are just nuts.
💚🌏 I used to buy into this idea of convenience. Ready-made, pre-packaged, “to-go”... It was all so convenient. We’re all so busy, right?😐 Until I found out that landfills weren't actually big compost heaps but giant tombs of waste. That plastic isn't truly recycled but downcycled. That it still takes a huge amount of resources to recycle.♻ That making anything to be used just once is a massive waste...of time, of energy, of materials. That all this packaging creates litter, chokes wildlife, blocks drains, poisons waterways and heads out to the ocean.🌊 That most of this single-use packaging is actually completely unnecessary, and can be avoided with just a few simple switches. I realised that this convenience at the expense of the planet wasn't really convenient at all. Now I see it as a big inconvenience. One I'm determined to do something about. The earth is a beautiful place, and it is worth looking after 🐝🐞🌱🍂🐾🐳🐠🌳🌲
I made my own granola last week and it was delicious! In the past I'd had trouble getting more nuts and seeds into my food but now I add them to everything! Recipe from @jshealth and nuts and seeds from @thesourceglenelg so no terrible plastic or waste happened in the process! 🤗🍃

Nut butters are some of our favourite foods to keep on hand ☺️They're great spread on toast, fruit, in smoothies, or in muesli 🥜 We make all of our own nut butter in store using ONLY dry roasted nuts, nothing else! Choose from peanut, almond, cashew or macadamia 😄
Acompanhando a @por_favor_menos_lixo e a @menos1lixo eu comecei a me conscientizar de muitas coisas.
Confesso que sinto muita dificuldade, mas é aos poucos que se muda os hábitos ruins.
Meu marido torce o nariz o tempo todo para as minhas naturebisses.
E hoje no mercado não foi diferente. Disse que sou louca de colocar tudo solto dentro do carrinho.
Hoje, posso parecer louca ao me preocupar com o meio ambiente. Mas aos poucos, vou ne juntando com mais gente como eu e vamos ficando cada vez mais fortes.
Bora que ainda faltam muitos hábitos para eu mudar!
Thanks @evolvebymelissa for reminding us that Nature CAN Win, we just need to take responsibility and make the right choices. Choose waste free when you can... it DOES make a difference!

I always pack #tea with me when I travel. Not only do I create the opportunity to enjoy an amazing tea, like this super fine #keemun , but I also avoid adding to a landfill, or water way. #tsac tea bags make for the best infusion #imo , and they're also #biodegradabile !! 🤗 Give it a shot!! #beforeandafter
HSU has a pretty cool program for their on campus eats! These Ozzi containers are reusable, and can be found at the dining areas on campus (salad/fruit bar included, obvsly) and can be dropped off for cleaning and reuse at several locations. I got a free token in my little housing welcome bag, which is great because the pay in is $5 normally! But one token is all you need to get going -- bring your container back and you get your token back! A great way to cut waste while eating in campus! The tare weights of these containers are already known so there's no hassle at check out! 😊 #refusesingleuse#zerowaste#sustainablecampus
Learning to nurture a garden is one of the best things I have done for my mental health. The practice slows you down, makes you think, makes you rely on others for advice and creates a community of people, plants and wildlife that come together to create nourishing food. #productofearth#garden#beautyinnature #🌱#zerowaste#bees#envirovegan
Oi! Criei este IG pra discutir, compartilhar e pensar sobre alguns assuntos que tão tilintando na minha cabeça ultimamente.
Os assuntos tão aí na bio. Mas vamos aos poucos, né?
Sou a Li, moro na Flórida, e escolhi esta foto pra começar colorindo minha timeline. Ah, não só! Estes são retalhos que juntei ao longo de anos de costura e em breve se transformarão numa colcha-homemade. #reuse#recycle#vidasimples#aproveitamento#zerowaste#lixozero#diy
Time for a refill of dō-Pourri. I've had this bottle a long time, and it's so inexpensive to refill. Choice of scent, 20-30 drops Essential oil, top off with water, and give a shake. Spritz the throne before your visit, to prevent odor, and assist with maintaining a sanitary bowl. Or Spritz the air to freshen the room. I like Serenity, which is a Lavender blend with a hint of vanilla, or Citrus Bliss which is a blend of citruses with hint of vanilla. Or just add a choice or mixture of citrus. Any choice is right, it's an art form. #diy#reuse#recycle#zerowaste#essentialoils#airfreshener#clean#cleaning
We will be taking a couple weeks off for a much needed break. I'm off to Indonesia for 2 weeks to recharge, unwind and come back strong for Luv The Grub and the fall semester 😎 Catch ya in a couple weeks!
One of those loaves of bread that I could just tell when I was kneading it that it was going to be good - and then it came out of the oven looking like this! ☺ There's almost enough left for soup tonight...
I always run out of bread flour a week before the end of our financial month so when this happens I use the dregs of the bag to feed my sourdough starter and then put it in the fridge until I get around to buying more flour (5kg bag). This bread used some of the discard before I fed it again.
My starter is bubbling away nicely. Maybe one day soon I'll have a picture worthy sourdough! They're getting better. I found a recipe I like, except I keep getting a really think dough (last attempt was like batter! But aside from sticking to the tin it was half decent!)
