We are a San Diego veteran family. As parents we care so deeply that the oceans are places that can be cherished and played in for centuries. But also, we want our children to be able to explore deeper regions than ever before and experience wild ocean life for generations to come. The animals in the oceans and the ocean itself are alive. Protecting living systems and beings is apart of parenting, it becomes a deep part of self, of I. I am a protector among many. My mission is to use the natural strength given to me by motherhood and create a force for positive, lasting, regenerative living. 👩🌾 #thezerowastemom#zerowasteliving#zerowaste#sandiego#oceans#pacificocean#whales#dolphins#oceanconservation#singleusesucks#orion#boymom#momlife#daddy
We had such a blast today biking around on @communityfarmersmarkets' annual Tour de Farm and composting all the tasty stops along the way. It makes us proud to be part of such a diverse and growing community of good folks and growers! #atlcomposts#yourspoilintosoil#forktofarm
Project: road to zero waste
Week 8: zero waste vs waste reduction
Everybody produces waste/trash which is why zero waste is more of an ideal or a goal and not a hard target. What a zero waste lifestyle aims to do is to stop dumping more garbage in our landfills and using materials that are harmful to the environment when trashed or incinerated for recycling. After 2 months I still have a lot to do in terms of zero waste BUT I've achieved waste reduction I never thought I would be able to do. I'm making changes I didn't think I would do and I've gotten my husband involved without much coaxing (demand) which to me is a big deal. Hopefully I've also gotten friends and family who read through my updates into reducing their garbage also. Looking at my trash when I started, I am happy after 8 weeks we have a lot less plastic and still more that I can do to reduce it. I'm grateful there's @plasticsolutionph and @greenantz_cavite that I can go to for what's left of my plastic waste but for me eliminating plastic is the real solution. Why? Let me count the ways...lol but that's a whole new topic for another day I think. For now there's a lot of room for improvement and a lot of zero waste people to follow on IG.

This rad lady crew braved the downpour today to collect a huge amount of trash from Mount Pleasant Park. Can't believe how much we collected from just two square city blocks! What do you think is the strangest thing we found!? Thanks @vancouverfdn for supporting our second annual #zerowaste snack workshop & park cleanup! #greenestcity#vfnsg#simonfraserschool
Sneak preview of tomorrow’s video 🎥 Let’s see if taping in 4K makes uploading to IG any better. Tried to figure it out with the whole Apple team and still no secret solution to preventing IG from compressing videos to the point they look like garbage out of a can 😂😂😂 But I’ll never let perfection stop me from progression. Perfect’s for the urgent, baby I want forever! 💋
Thank you @jacelya213 for your donation love bug. We are at $585 for the new computer y’all... 🎉🎉🎉 Stay tuned for the full video tomorrow 👉 “WHO IS STEPHANIE LANE | MY LIFE STORY”

My kitchen counter when I go bulk shopping 🛒 👌🏼😊 This is actually a pretty light load, I usually go nuts and get way too much every time 😂 but the best part is not wasting by not using disposable plastic bags. I bring my own reusable bags and create no unnecessary waste when grocery shopping, why do we use something only to turn right around and throw it away? Instead, buy in bulk to get things like pasta, dried fruit, beans, cereal, oats, nuts, seeds, and other snacks and foods while not creating more waste. Reusable bulk bags that are so much more beautiful than ugly plastic are available in my Etsy shop #madabouthoney
I've been doing lots of canning lately, trying to stock up before the frost kills off a bunch of summertime plants in the garden. My pigs are definitely reaping the rewards! -
Every morning, they get their breakfast of non-GMO, soy-free feed. And, at least for the past few weeks, they also get an afternoon snack. Earlier this week, their afternoon snack was two huge bowls of scraps from tomato sauce production: peels, seeds, & juice. Watching them eat totally cracks me up, and I find myself just standing there watching them for several minutes. The way they smack their lips and toss the tomatoes up in the air to break them apart is hilarious. Hopefully if Dragos and I have kids one day, they won't learn their table manners from these porkers 😆
PS I know I've said it before, but I love how when there's piggies on the farm, all your scraps get turned into Bacon! #WasteNotWantNot 🙌🐷🤤🥓
#zerowaste shower! Stainless steel safetly razor, bar soap, solid shampoo and conditioner from Lush (love the shampoo, not crazy about the conditioner), bamboo nail brush and home made face wash (not sure if I like this or not, will decide after a few more days) 🛁
I ordered a couple dozen Amber Glass Bottles for holiday gifts this year... finally got around to opening them tonight and they aren’t shrink wrapped!! 😍
Now to get started on these #zerowaste gifts. (Closer to #minimalwaste , but you get it.)

Berjumpa lagi dengan saya "Pavel Zaidan" perwakilan kelas 4B di radio sekolah..
Teman - teman kali ini saya akan menyampaikan materi tentang keanekaragaman hayayi, salah satu keanekaragaman hayati yang sangat bermanfaat adalah tanaman toga. Toga adalah tanaman obat keluarga yang bisa dibudidayakan di pekarangan rumah dan mempunyai manfaat sebagai obat - obatan herbal tradisional. Tanaman toga juga bisa ditanam di sekolah lo teman - teman.
Selain harganya yang murah, tanaman obat ini juga tidak menimbulkan efek samping bagi kesehatan kita. Berbeda dengan obat-obatan kimia yang terkadang menimbulkan efek samping bagi kesehatan. Kita tahu bahwa zaman dahulu masih belum ada obat - obatan kimia seperti pada zaman sekarang ini. Dahulu kita oeabg sakit menggunakan tanaman obat, itulah mengapa tanaman obat lebih sehat dari pada obat - obatan kimia.
Adapun jenis tanaman toga sering kita temui disekitar kita di rumah, pasar maupun disekolah antara lain :
1. Blimbing wuluh antara lain untuk obat penyakit diabetes , sakit gigi, sariawan, batuk dan asma.
2. Seledri, seledri mengandung berbagai macam vitamin A, Vitamin B , mineral, kalium dan juga zat besi.
3. Temulawak sebagai obat masuk angin, memperlancar pencernaan , menjaga kesehatan hati, mengatasi penyakit ginjal.
4. Kunyit sebagai obat pencegah kanker meningkatkan antioksidan, meningkatkan fungsi hati dan mengurangi resikonleokikia.
Dan masih ada lagi contoh tanaman toga yang belum bisa saya sampaikan mengingat jumlah tanaman toga yang sangat banyak..
Sekian radio sekolah kali ini apabila ada kata yang salah saya mohon maaf.
Salam lestari ..zero waste

Upcycled feed bags lovingly made by mum 🐔🐔these are the perfect nursery bags or market bags, waterproof & they can be just rinsed out. Too pretty for landfill! We are thinking we may sell these, let us know your thoughts 🤔
Ca m'a pris sur un coup de tête... je voulais voir si je savais faire ca.
J'ai suivi le tuto "le tuto qui plait bien" du blog canalblog "Madame Caro".
#chaussons en #simili (des housses de coussin que j'ai refaites), en taille douze mille trop grand. #zerodechet#zerowaste#reuse#recycle#upcycle#jecoudspourmesfilles
Y'a plus qu'à mettre l'élastique mais là, je vais me coucher :)
(Oh et j'ai mis une semelle à l'envers)
If you’ve always wondered where to even get started with Zero Waste, I put together a very fast read with the Top 5 things you can do now to improve the environment 🌲🌍. You can find this guide by clicking on the link in my bio!
They are extremely easy to implement and in the coming weeks I will go more into detail for each of these 5 Tips by adding videos and separate blog posts.
But in the meantime I wanted to get this out there so that people understand it’s not that difficult to get started, it doesn’t take 1000 hours of research, you can do small incremental changes and I will help you along the way by going more into detail on how to do things and I will do the research for you 😊!
I hope you find this small little starter guide helpful, and as always I’d love to connect with you and find out if you’ve started your zero waste journey, which was one of the first things you changed in your habits?
Have a great Saturday and know that you CAN make a difference by changing small habits every day 😃🌞👏!
Juntamos un kit para viajar o salir de casa preparados (depende a donde salgas será lo que llevarás del kit), esto es lo que hay aquí en #Oaxaca : Plato de peltre (La Violeta), Servilleta de tela (Casa del Artesano), Vaso y Taza de acero inoxidable (Central de abastos), Popote (Venía con una bebida en un bar del centro), Termo para bebidas (Makedonia), Cubiertos (Souvenir de un babyshower porque son de plástico pero no pudimos rechazarlos, la ventaja no pesan y pueden reusarse bastante), Palillos de madera (De un restaurante donde comimos), Bolsas totebag, pequeña con jareta y porta cubiertos (Ya las teníamos y dos son confección de una amiga). 😊 Todo esto es para una sola persona pero sin problema podría compartirse y usar entre dos! 💚 #vidasimple#zerowaste#zerowasteoaxaca#basuracero#basuracasicero#residuocero#cerodesperdicio#ceroresiduo#cerowaste#zerowastehome#zerowasteliving#zerowastelife#oaxacacity
Sunday is Market Day 👩🏼🌾🌿
Before grabbing some produce, James and I treated ourselves to a little breakfast. I didn't think to bring utensils and what I ordered was already in it's disposable container so I couldn't use my own. Good think the @farmgatemarket uses all compostable food containers AND supplies the disposal facilities 😇
I also went for the long black with a dash of almond milk (because I've been watching too many @sarahs_day vlogs 😂) which I've discovered is actually a good choice of coffee because the milk is unfrothed so it reduces waste 👍🏼
Hope everyone else is enjoying a plastic free Sunday! 💕
