My favourite kind of meal - a simple deli sandwich in a TuneeManee wrap, sliced salted tomatoes and a handful of nuts - what more can a girl ask for? What's your favourite meal?
Just listed mermaid straws in my Etsy shop! These straws change colors depending on how the lift hits them! ❤️🌎
Never thought I’d feel so smug about wrapping a lemon in my lunch break! Goodbye cling film 👋🏻 hello 🐝 wax covers!
Lunch is prepped and ready by the door. This is the first thing I do when I get up in the morning, along with Oliver's breakfast. This is how I guarantee that I'm prepared for my work day. .
Did you see that starting June 3rd I'll be starting a 13 week trash reduction course? I'm so excited! It will be a fun way to really assess what we are throwing away and see what we can do to minimize it. It's all about what we have the ability to control and building new habits. We've got this! 💕

Getting Clapton on the @refill_london
map! Refill London is tackling plastic pollution and championing tap water; via their app you can see where your nearest water fountain/refill location is ensuring you’ll never be caught out and have to buy a plastic water bottle - @claptoncraft
are now on the map and happy to refill your water bottles! Also a great spot for some zero waste beer shopping - buy one of their glass growlers which can then be refilled with a changing rota of beer 🍻🍻💚🌎
Jellyfish, plastic bags, balloons; these all look like food to a hungry sea turtle. 🎈But plastics and rubbish don’t belong inside a sea turtle or in the ocean at all. They can lead to a number of environmental problems. 🌍 They are especially dangerous for marine animals that can become entangled or accidentally ingest these items while feeding. 🐋 Once ingested, the plastic items can cause a variety of issues. Digestive tracts can become blocked, which can lead to starvation and death. Over 100 million marine animals die each year due to marine debris. And more than half of the world’s sea turtles have ingested some plastic or human trash! 🚮
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
💠Avoid using disposable plastics whenever possible.
💠Don’t use personal-care products containing “microbeads.”
💠Never litter, and always make sure trash is properly disposed. Pick up any plastic bottles or trash you find.
💠Get involved in and organize beach cleanups.
💠Use reusable groceries bags and other reusable items. Carry a reusable to-go beverage container instead of disposable cups or water bottles.
💠Try reusable metal or glass straw alternatives.

Our lovely team member Liz with our brand new pot of Lion Heart 💛 Swapping our plastic pots for glass was something we’d been thinking about doing for a while and we’re so excited to finally see them in store! Are you loving our new pots?
A wonderful example of the characteristic, rounded texture of white teas from Fujian, China. While it is Silver Needle White Tea that is more widely famed from this region, it is White Peony that a connoisseur and tea lovers can truly savour for its complexity and honeyed-texture. What’s so special?
From its authentic home in Fujian, this special variety of tea tree - called Fuding Big White (Fuding Da Bai) - flourishes in the cool, misty mountains of this famous tea region. This type of tea has particularly large, white buds, which are picked to make sweet and delicate Silver Needle. As spring progresses new leaves roll off the buds and White Peony is picked as bud and two young leaves.
Sets of downy buds with silver tips are picked together with long, fine green leaves – only the top two leaves are plucked; making it a job for a skilled picker, but well worth the effort. The masterful processing dries the delicate tea fully. It is the combination of leaves and buds in this grade that gives the more complex presentation of flavours and rounded texture.
A pale golden liquor with a fresh, green hue. The aroma is bright and floral, leading to a taste that is delightfully refreshing, rounded and full in flavour, with hints of cucumber and honeyed melon.
Today is the UN’s International Day for Biodiversity 🌿🌎⠀
Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth, and it’s fading fast as we destroy habitats and deplete our natural resources. 😨⠀
Most of us are motivated to reduce waste because of ocean plastic and toxic landfills. But there’s more to it - throwaway consumption also means we’re using resources too quickly. Our coffee cups, plastic bottles, and over-ordered food have to come from somewhere - using up land, water, forests, fossil fuels and minerals. ⠀
The UN estimates that 28% of the world’s farming land produces food that no one eats. Each year we send 500 tonnes of gold to landfill as e-waste - more than the production of the world’s top 10 gold mines!⠀
To celebrate Biodiversity Day, why not start one new habit to reduce your waste? 😃

Ostatnio sporo mówi się o wszelkich suplementach przy hashimoto, o ashwagandha 🌱 o kroplówkach witaminowych 😷 o sprowadzaniu świńskiej tarczycy z Tajlandii🐷😱⁉️ jakie jest nasze zdanie na ten temat? Lepiej zdrowo się odżywiać niż wcinać kolejne garści tabletek. Starać się prowadzić zdrowy styl życia, odżywiać się w sposób racjonalny i sięgać przede wszystkim po produkty świeże i nieprzetworzone. Żyjemy w czasach, w których próbuje nam się wciskać różne triki na schudnięcie w tydzień, na naciągnięcie zmarszczek w jedną noc i cudowne uzdrowienie z wszelkich dolegliwości w 15minut. Cudu nie będzie- To od ciebie zależy jaką jakość życia będziesz mieć!✌🏻

Snacks for the road! 🌰 Found a bulk place in Leon selling Spanish almonds (which are so superior to any other almond I have ever tasted 😋 - but hard to find outside Spain) and filled up my trusty Onya bag. Today I leave Leon for two more weeks of walking 👣Every day is closer to Santiago...
3 razones para invertir en un cepillo de dientes ecológico:
1. Mango biodegradable: el mango está hecho de bambú Moso, que es una madera ambientalmente sostenible.
2. Cerdas suaves sin BPA: Las cerdas se verifican libres de BPA y están hechas de nylon. Aunque no son biodegradables, pueden reciclarse. Se usa nylon porque no hay una opción disponible basada en plantas que le permita usar su cepillo de dientes durante mas de 2 a 4 meses.
3. Embalaje ecológico: El cepillo de dientes viene en una caja de cartón compostable / biodegradable.
El bambú es la planta con el crecimiento más rápido en la tierra. Contiene elementos antimicrobianos naturales, no es necesario usar fertilizantes ni pesticidas durante su cultivo.

This is one of the first and easiest switch all of us have made when we wanted to live Plastic free - Grocery bags or Shopping Bags. -
Thankfully Plastic Bags are banned in Bangalore and you need to pay if you need one. Most of the shopkeepers encourage you to bring your own bag.
Yet, many times it’s unfortunate to see educated people just plainly failing to acknowledge the issue of plastic menace.
Yesterday at a grocery place, a couple (educated and employed) asked the lady at the store for a “poly” - Polythene cover. The lady refused, she grumbled, but the adamant couple literally begged her to give a “poly”. I usually refrain from unsolicited advice, but I couldn’t help tell them “It’s banned for a reason, we should bring our own bags”. It was just a packet of milk after all, not any heavy groceries. -
The best way to avoid this is to just carry a bag anyway in your purse whether you are planning to shop or not. Leave few bags in your car, carry a light weight foldable bag in your handbag, just having one at your disposal would be just the right solution for this.
Keep practising this and before you know it, it will be a habit and it would hurt to ask for a shopping bag next time. -
Happy Shopping 😊
