I spent some time emptying my compost tumbler this morning and I thought I'd give a report on the "compostable containers" that are gaining in popularity. I put in this container in January and I will say I am seeing less and less of it but it still hasn't broken down completely. Also, I only really began to see progress after adding an insane amount of coffee grounds to the system (maybe about 3 10 liter buckets worth) which would have significantly increased the temperature. I also added some veggie ware cups to the bin around June and those have actually completely disappeared. I can still see some of the cup covers (the top that looks like plastic) but that's about it basically it. So the exercise has taught me there is a scale for which things decompose even in the compostable/biodegradable space. And no compostable and biodegradable don't mean the same thing anymore (I think those in charge are being confusing purpose now). 🙄 Is this a better option than plastics, yes. Is this a better option than bringing your own bowl/container absolutely not. And if you are wondering if the compostable containers will break down in your bin.....maybe eventually? #zerowaste   #waste #coffee #sustainability   #environment   #eco  #foodwaste   #recycling   #food  #share  #climatechange  #tips  #life  #compost #foodwaste  #food   #composting #soil #fertilizer #ecodesign #reuse #ecofriendly #sustainable #green #permaculture
You know? 當一個人慢慢的跟其他人越來越少的聯繫的時候,代表她(他)已經在慢慢的堅強了! 已經不在依賴別人,因為他知道自己要的是什麼!他(她)就跟時間一樣,不等人了 不在像以前一樣,浪費時間,這也是學會怎麼跟自己獨處,並不是自己想太多 是因為自己發現! 套用一句與神同行的一句話 「不要為了過去的事、浪費現在新的眼淚💧」與大家分享、🙏🙏#Dont #waste #my #time
We clean rugs as thoroughly as everything else we clean, so why not give your unloved rug some TLC! With Christmas creeping up it only makes sense to have the whole house cleaned 😊✨ - - - - - #CarpetCleanHudds #StayFresh #PerfectPeople #NCCA #RosesCleaning #cleaningservice #cleaning #motivation #cleaningmode #Huddersfield #westyorkshire #cleaninghacks #cleaningday #cleaningcompany #ebacircle #work #selfcleaning #services #tips #carpet #sofa #office #waste #dirty #clean #before #after
Single use device reprocessing (#sud #reprocessing ) is a relatively new market for #medical #waste in the US. These #singleuse #surgical tools will be sent to a plant for cleaning and sterilization, then bought back by the hospital for reuse. It's an #FDA approved process helping reduce medical #garbage sent to #landfills . The reprocessing market is expected to be worth over $2billion by 2022.

Heading home sketch. Did you know that if you use your reusable cup to buy tea from #railgourmet they send the cup you didn’t use to landfill anyway? #appalled #tea #recycling #plasticwaste #plasticpollution #waste #environment #sketch #sketchbook #draweveryday #illustration #selfportrait #train #window #southwesternrailways
The spirit of giving is to show love to those around us ❤️. But sadly, Christmas gift-giving can also have negative impacts on the planet, with mass consumption, excessive packaging and gift wrapping. ☹️⠀ ⠀ If you want to show respect for your loved ones, and also respect the planet, why not try a DIY gift? You might not think of yourself as “crafty,” but some homemade cookies, or a massive jar of your secret-recipe pasta sauce is a thoughtful, economic, and unique gift 🎁🌍⠀ ⠀ Explore Youtube for all sort of ideas from knitting, writing a poem or potting a plant. And since it’s uniquely made-by-you, your gift is unlikely to end up in the bin! 📝💝⠀ ⠀ Have you ever made a DIY gift ? 🤔⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ 📷 @amandavickcreative ) ⠀ #zeroinonwaste #zerowaste #reuse #reducereuserecycle #zerowastehome #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #waste #plasticfree #noplastic #saynotoplastic #plasticpollution #blueplanet #ecoconscious #consciousconsumer #savetheplanet #sustainableliving #sustainability #bethechange #bethechangeyouwanttosee #purposedriven #diygifts #homemadegift
Marching to Extinction ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the rarest storks in the world, Greater Adjutant Storks are named after their stiff military gait. They’re the largest in the stork family and stand at almost 5 feet tall with an average wingspan of 8 feet. If Greater Adjutants continue to scavenge in the landfill, their future may be dire. Garbage attracts these natural scavengers who have been poisoned by the expanding landfill in the past, resulting in numerous deaths. To make matters worse, the landfill borders and encroaches on the Deepor Beel wetland, causing deaths via seepage. Almost half of the world’s population of Greater Adjutants scavenge at the Boragaon Landfill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #HargillaArmy #Hargilla #conservation #landfill #waste #eco #greateradjutantstork #greateradjutant #india #assam #IUCNRedList #stork #birdfreaks #allmightybirds #birdextreme #your_best_birds #feather_perfection #ig_discover_birdslife #birdsofinstagram #best_birds_of_world #eye_spy_birds #best_birds_of_ig #birds_adored #nature_worldwide_birds #igbirds #everydayindia #wildlife_seekers #igscwildlife #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephoto @thewcs @wwf @welovebirds @birdsonearth @best_birds_of_world @discovery @natgeo @thewcs @world_wildlife @wildlifeplanet @chalohoppo @wcsindia @unenvironment @thewildlifediary

♻️Jeu de société ♻️ . VIVA MONTANYA de @biovivaeditions est un super jeu coopératif : on gagne tous ensemble ou on perd tous ensemble 👌🏼 . Le but du jeu est très simple, il suffit d’arriver à ramasser tous les déchets présents sur la montagne avant que la neige ne fonde. . Pour ce faire, il suffit de lancer le dé et d’arriver à trouver sous quel déchet se cache chaque l’animal représenté par le dé. . Dès que vous avez trouvé l’animal, il suffit de voir dans quelle poubelle va votre déchet, • poubelle classique avec les déchets non recyclable • poubelle du verre perdu • poubelle recyclage hors verre . ⚠️ Mais attention ⚠️ il faut avoir récupérer tous ensemble les déchets avant que la neige fonde ( symbole soleil sur le dé ) qui vous fera retourner la dernière plaquette « côté neige » entre la plaquette « fonte » et la plaquette « vallée » ( voir toutes les photos pour comprendre 😆 ) . 👍🏼Si vous avez réussi à ramasser tous les déchets avant que la fonte des neige ne fonde jusqu’à la station, alors on gagne tous ensemble. . 👎🏼Si la neige a fondu jusqu’à la station, il reste donc des déchets dans la vallée et la montagne est polluée. On a donc perdu tous ensemble notre mission du zéro déchet. . 💡C’est un jeu absolument génial et hyper ludique. Mon fils ne s’en lasse absolument pas et nous non plus car au-delà du jeu, il y a une réelle réflexion sur tous ces déchets jetés dans la nature. Ethan est sensibilisé sur le sujet depuis le plus jeune âge, et sait de lui même où vont les déchets à la maison. Ne vous avisez pas de jeter du papier dans la poubelle classique 😆il veille au grain 😉 . Le jeu dit que c’est à partir de 4 ans et je ne suis pas d’accord. Nous lui avons offert pour ses 3 ans et il a très bien su comprendre petit à petit le principe. Et même si l’enfant ne saisi pas tout, tout de suite, c’est un support super pour discuter et échanger sur le recyclage etc... . #jeudesociete #partygames #dechets #zerodechet #waste #zerowaste #recyclage #recycling #enfant #children #apprentissage #sensibiliserlesenfants #ief #jouonsensemble
TAKE NOTICE 🌍🌎 Be aware of the natural world and take time to reflect on the impact we are having on it. Anthropogenic climate change is becoming a very real concern. Unless we seriously alter our production and consumption practices we are going to be responsible for irreparable environmental damage. This photo is from a @greenpeace campaign that highlights the toxic effects that textile dyeing has on rivers. Industry effluents containing heavy metals and harmful chemicals often flow, untreated, into local water bodies at the detriment of wildlife, workers and residents of the area. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 📸Greenpeace: Toxic Threads #advent #adventcalendar #countdown #countdowntochristmas #christmas #christmas2018 #mentalwellbeing #wellbeing #learning #knowledge #knowledgeispower #naturaldye #natural #dye #experiment #waste #zerowaste #onion #onionskin #onionskindye #fabric #sustainablefashion #ethicalfashion #fastfashion #sustainable #greenpeace #toxic #chemicals #river #homemade

Schampo, mascara, handdesinfektion och tandkräm - vad har de gemensamt? Jo, de klassas nämligen som farligt avfall och ska därför sorteras och lämnas in till Återvinningscentral/Återbruk. Är behållaren tom ex. en parfymflaska - sorteras den på glasförpackning. Nagellack däremot är aldrig helt tom och ska alltid sorteras som farligt avfall. . Var extra uppmärksam när produkterna har varningssymboler/ faropiktogram (se bild 2). Då klassas det alltid som farligt avfall och kan göra stora skador på miljö, dricksvatten eller vår egen kropp, om dessa hamnar fel 🚫 . Det farliga avfallet tas sedan om hand på ett miljöriktigt sätt. En del av förpackningarna återvinns, ex. målarfärgsburkar och sprayflaskor ♻️

These businesses and regions have had the final straw with single-use plastic drinking straws and they are taking big steps to phase them out of regular use worldwide. Sit-down restaurants in California may be required to ask customers if they want straws before providing them. While the legislation would not affect fast food restaurants or cafés, it is a simple step in the right direction towards changing business and consumer attitudes about plastic straws. “How long have people known that plastic is harmful to the environment? Still we all use it. This is a measured approach that helps change behaviour.” While California could be the first U.S. state to pass legislation addressing straws, Seattle has already banned restaurants and cafés from giving out plastic straws, however, businesses are still allowed to provide recyclable or biodegradable options. Meanwhile, multinational coffee stop chain Costa Coffee has recently announced that they will ditching plastic straws this year in favour of a more environmentally friendly alternative. The goals co-align with the 25-year action plan unveiled by UK Prime Minister Theresa May to “eradicate all avoidable plastic waste” by 2042. The rest of the European Union plans on mandating that all single-use plastic packaging must be recyclable by 2030. #singleuse #straws #california #cafe #cafes #restaurants #waste #plasticwaste #restaurant #positive #positivity #theresamay #environment #earthday #earth #us #uk #fastfood #goodnews #nbn #nobleaknews #goodcause #harmful #instagood #instadaily #europe

I have never been happy with my hair despite all those different shampoos or hair products I used so far. My #hair is super fine and dry, so we can simply call it as the worst type you would like to have. __ Not long ago, I stop using shampooing my hair every day. Instead, I used only water and water with vinegar to rinse at the end of the shower. I was not content with plastic waste I produce through shampoo bottles and packaging, so I felt better. 🤗No miracle happened. In fact, nothing has changed either for better or for worse. After a while, I started to use #soapbar instead of shampoo and it worked well. What are the pros of soap or shampoo bars made with organic oils and plant butters, pure essential oils, organic herbs, and spices? 🌱100% #compostable 🌱eliminate the need for plastic bottles and packaging 🧳 easy to carry around during travelling as they are solid. 🌱sulphate-free 🌱synthetic perfume-free There are several controversial ingredients in shampoos. Here, I wanna mention the most notorious one, sulphate. 🔎What is the role of sulphate (sodium laureth sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate) in #shampoo ? ❓sulphate is simply responsible for bubbling (foaming). The question is ‘Are those bubbles you see on ads really necessary?’ ⁉️Sulphate attracts oil and water so that it helps dirt and dead skin cells to be removed from your skin and scalp. However, it also removes natural oil and moisture from your hair and leave your hair dry and brittle. That’s why you should avoid sulphates if you have dry and fine hair as I do. ❗️Although there is no scientific evidence supporting that #SLS is carcinogenic, other concerns exist related to SLS as it produces 1,4-dioxane as a by-product, which is classified as “likely to be #carcinogenic to humans” by the Environmental Protection Agency. Guess what? Since it’s a by-product, it is not required to be on the label. So at the end of the day you can judge and hopefully decide on the option that would be better for your own #health as well as #environment . #reducingplastic #waste is already a great reason to give it a chance . #sustainableliving #noplastic #liveonless #nopoo #shampoobar #plasticocean #zerowaste

🏪Сегодня была отличная встреча-тусовка от @burritogo_kz с основателем @mytazalyk Айбеком @aibek.rakhim и известной вайнершой Эльданой @eldana_foureyes по теме сортировке🗑️ и переработке бытовых отходов♻️. 🤓Было очень интересно послушать спикеров, а ещё приятнее было наблюдать за молодежью - как они проникаются этой темой. 🍃Мне повезло присутствовать с "зелёными" друзьями @ecocity_kz Айгуль и Зариной @zarrintai Также хочу отметить что в #BuritoGo стоят эко-боксы🚮 от #mytazalyk , это говорит о том что заведение серьезно настроено на сортировку отходов у себя в пространстве и ярко освещает эту тему🆒.

En la época de fiestas, se aumenta el volumen de residuos considerablemente. La noche del 6 de Enero a menudo hay que duplicar los servicios de recogida de papel y cartón por acumulación de embalajes. El 1 de Enero, ocurre lo mismo con el vidrio. Según la localidad, la generación de estos residuos aumenta entre un 10 y más de un 20%. En nuestro país, llegamos a generar 1,75 kg por persona y día, un 75% más de la media que generamos durante el resto del año. Se consciente del impacto que generas en estas fiestas, y ¡haz algún pequeño gesto para reducirlo! . . #fiestassostenibles #zerowaste #residuzero #ceroresiduos #malbaratament #despilfarro #derroche #waste #xmaswaste
