A LITTLE PEEK INTO MY HIPPIE TRUTH #greenroutine (1) My indoor compost container and cotton towels because paper towels are stupid but cleanliness isn't. (2) My tiny French press and KeepCup that I use to fuel my coffee obsession without filling a landfill (3) YOU CAN GET BULK SPICES! How fun + flavorful! (4) My Le Parfait bulk containers looking cute, classy, and (environmentally) clean ♻️ (inspired by bae/Bea @zerowastehome) (5) My grocery shopping bags that say "I'm single and rocking it but also totally prepared to be the baddest soccer mom on the block" (6) Patrick yawning because he's heard this all before. PLZ consider me @greenmatters @packagefreeshop I am a broke college student just trying to do my best. ✌🏼☮️🌎 #GreenRoutine @trashisfortossers #packagefree #zerowaste #livegreen #learngreen
#greenroutine Sometimes! It looks like I have my life together 🙃 #itsaprocess #tryingtobeoptimistic __________________________________________________ The 3rd pic is my favorite because the stars 💫 of my sustainable efforts aligned that day. ▫️wearing my thrifted jeans 👖 from Crossroads and wool loungers from allbirds ▫️riding public transportation 🚈 ▫️carrying my reusable tote bag ▫️eating overnight oats w/ at the time in-season figs in a mason jar with to-go bamboo utensils 🍴 #Yayforearth 🌎
A weekly #greenroutine that I love is #bulk grocery shopping. It's so rewarding to peak into my own grocery bags and see so much beautiful cotton, glass, and metal, and little to no plastic! So grateful for beautiful, life-giving food.🙏🏻 . . . #zerowasteliving #zerowastehome #zerowastedc #zerowastevegan #zerowaste #goingzerowaste #yayforearth #ourplanetourhome #zerowasteblogger #janeandsimple #waronwaste #packagefree #greenmatters #bulkisbeautiful #bulkshopping #groceryhaul #uglyproduceisbeautiful #dctakeout
Thanks again for your continued support and we hope you'll continue to live green!
To keep rare bat species in an area where they thrive, a community that's already created nearly 100 sustainable homes is changing their street lights. These new red LED bulbs will allow humans to continue operating at night while the bats can avoid it.
Mountain gorillas remain an endangered species, but conservation efforts such as regulated tourism and habitat protection has increased their population over the last 35 years. It's jumped 25 percent in a specific African region in the past eight years.
China continues to deal with rising population in their cities, and that includes immigration from other regions of the country. To promote local food growth, 1,000 "Slow Food" villages will be created in an effort to educate those on culture and sustainability.
One of the biggest databases of pollution that's been picked up off the streets has been upgraded to make the experience easier. Litterati, downloadable on iOS and Android devices, now allows for better collaboration, advanced tagging, and easier photo uploads.
