Litter... everywhere... who’s responsibility is it? 🌏 . We are all responsible. What you buy will eventually end up in someone else’s hands, so only buy what the Earth can decompose without harm 🌏 . #conservationoverconvenience #planetbeforeprofit #lovetheworld #earthday #pickuplitter #recycler #litterbug #naturelove #countrysidelife #ecofriendly #environmentalist #environmentalism #environmentallyfriendly
[22/30: stop sucking]  I took a bit of a break from the scheduled posts yesterday to talk about earth day a little bit. But today I’m back with the challenge and the final week is dedicated to reducing waste on the go. I thought I’d start with probably the most publicised issue at the moment: STRAWS.  I’m sure you all know a lot about the evils of straws at this point, but just in case you’ve missed the news; around 8.5 billion plastic straws are thrown away in the UK every year, and they do not biodegrade. A lot of these contribute to the 150 million tonnes of plastic waste in our oceans. Here, they are eaten by seabirds and turtles which leads to a 50% mortality rate. They also break down into micro plastics which is a great hazard to fish.  Recently, Theresa May announced her intention to ban straws within the UK. This is amazing news but it doesn’t mean the ban is happening quite yet. The earliest the ban is likely to come into effect is early 2019. Manufacturers will then likely find new materials to works with, such as biodegradable paper.  This is great obviously, and does solve the plastic problem. But I ask people to remember that these paper straws will still need to be produced. They still require the cutting of trees and the use of natural resources and burning of chemicals. Although they are a better alternative, a reusable bamboo or stainless steel straw is still one step ahead so don’t forget to bring your own!  I have some bamboo ones, but I’m personally not a huge fan. I’m giving them to a friend at the end of the month (no waste and encouraging someone else to not use plastic ones!) and getting myself some stainless steel ones instead.  I know this is spoken about a lot, so some people don’t think it’s still even that big an issue. We assume after the facts being so publicised everyone would be making an effort and some people really are! But yesterday I had someone order a bottle of water and a plastic straw. Unfortunately I
I half-joked on an earlier post about following the path of Albert Einstein (as well as Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs) by having a one outfit wardrobe.  The advantages?  It's one less decision to make every morning and it could be a potential time saver.  The disadvantages? As a creative I'd probably get bored wearing the same thing day in day out.  Also an outfit for all occasions seems quite the challenge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although this thought was related to my scarily growing collection of Converse, it was also a little snapshot of where my head is at.  I'm currently questioning the amount of clothes, shoes and handbags I have and in reflection I ask, how often do I use or wear them? Slowly I can feel myself leaning towards a more minimalist mindset and like the raw material I use for my jewellery I've also begun to question #wherearemyclothesfrom? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's an important question being highlighted during Fashion Revolution Week which kicks off today - a global fashion activism movement encouraging us to use our voices to call for positive change in the fashion industry (see @fash_rev for more details). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Running from 23-29 April, whether you are a consumer, designer/maker, a retailer, educator and/or thought leader - I can't think of a better time to spread the word, encourage awareness and support positive action.  I for one will be doing my bit and getting involved.  Come join me! ❤️
We have the ability to leave a beautiful world for the next generation Now.. or carry on fucking it up.. Earth day and everyone wants to be an environmentalist.. if your really an environmentalist - go plant based.  A main cause of climate change, deforestation, water use, ocean destruction.. the list goes on.  It’s a simple change in lifestyle that can make all the change in the world.. #goplantbased A disconnection with the environment leads to a disconnection with ourselves, go barefoot aswell. I swear down we ain’t supposed to be rocking round on flat pavements on rubber soled trainers. Earth Gang init ! #mothernature #earthday
Yesterday was earth day! 🌏  The world is so beautiful. The earth does not belong to us, we belong to earth. 🏝 We have a responsibility to care for the earth. ☁️ The best way to instantly reduce your negative impact on the world is to eat vegan. I encourage every single one of you to watch @cowspiracy on Netflix tonight, or some time soon! If you don’t have time, they also have a great website full of information, as does @forksoverknives 🐝 My YouTube (link in bio) also has two environmental based videos. One on #zerowaste and one on #environmentalism and veganism 🖤
I would go with: (Those who fix and clean what is destroyed or contaminated.) "Om Vishnupad Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya Astottara-Sata Sri Srimad Srila Prabhupad Jagat Guru". Paramahamsa (परमाहंस), also spelled paramahansa or paramhansa, is a Sanskrit -theological title of honor applied to Hindu spiritual teachers who are regarded as having attained enlightenment. The title literally means "supreme swan," and symbolizes spiritual discrimination. The word 'Paramahamsa' signifies one who is Awakened in all realms. [1] Paramahansa is the highest level of spiritual development in which a union with ultimate reality has been attained by a sannyasi.[2]  Regrann from @jklamlam -  Happy Earth Day 🌏 Our home.  #protectearth #thisishome #happyearthday #bemindful #greenpeace #savetheplanet #greenplanet #india #education #environmentalism

As some of you have seen, I've been slowly, but determinedly transitioning to a zero-waste lifestyle. Excited to say that for the past 23 days, I've been collecting my trash in this one mason jar! I'm now blogging my new lifestyle as part of my @weareavodah Justice Fellowship and I'm so excited to share this journey with you! Follow me at #enviromensch on Instagram and learn more about my journey on my new #tumblr page. Link in bio!

Found some bulk buy nuts at Lidl which is great, because it means less packaging.  Along with veganism, another cause that is very close to my heart is the zero-waste movement. I've been trying my best recently to switch to zero-waste, and it's v difficult ngl, especially in the UK. That doesn't mean that we shouldn't all make an effort to reduce our #plastic use.  #mentalhealth #environmentalism #zerowaste #zerowastelivimg #mindfulness #mindful #meditation #mindfulbreakfast #veganbreakfast #whatveganseat #vegan #veganpower #whatveganslooklike #beach #selfgrowth #embrace #loa #lawofattraction #selflove #positivity #pagan #zen #meditation #yoga #yogagirl #travel #solotraveler #solofemaletravel
#repost @onegreenplanet ・・・ Happy #earthday! Turning the faucet off while brushing your teeth is a common practice to conserve water (and is a good thing to do). If you really want to have a big impact and conserve the most water you can consider what is on your plate!

From the shore to the mountains, my love for this planet we call home only deepens with every step I take.

If you do anything today for #earthday, watch @cowspiracy. If you care about the future of this planet, the single most important change you can make is to go vegan - and it’s such a simple, easy change to make. 🌱 A person who follows a vegan diet produces the equivalent of 50% less carbon dioxide, uses 1/11th oil, 1/13th water and 1/18th land compared to a non-vegan. Furthermore, each day a person who eats a vegan diet saves 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 sq ft of forested land and 20 lbs CO2 equivalent. Why? Because animal agriculture produces more greenhouse gas emissions than the combined exhaust from all transportation and is responsible for 1 - 2 acres of rainforest being cleared every second and up to 91% of total Amazon rainforest destruction. This is alongside animal agriculture being the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones and global water pollution. 🌱 Our consumption of animal products is killing the planet and of course killing billions upon billions of animals. We call ourselves the most intelligent species whilst destroying our own home, the only home we've ever known. No other species upon this Earth destroys and consumes in the way in which we do. The only way we can make a difference is as individuals uniting to collectively take a stand against the industries which exploit, murder and destroy. If you care about the planet, the easiest and the most beneficial thing you can do for our home is to be vegan 🌱 #earthday #earth #ocean #vegan #environment #environmentalscience #environmentalist #green #environmentallyfriendly #environmentalism #food #science #vegansofig #htx #houston #univision #nbc #abc #cnn #foxnews #telemundo #houstonvegans #veganfam #cheese #wings #meat #icecream #meat
