Last year - this was me, starting out with two raised garden beds and a no-dig. We harvested a bunch of kale (until the cabbage moths came in with a vengeance😱), enough zucchini to not buy any for about 6 weeks, and one solitary pumpkin. There were a lot of fail moments, and a big war against the snails and slugs. (any tips welcome🙏🏼) An urban farmer friend of mine (cc: @spokeandspade ) recommends focusing on doing a few crops well... but, I’m a dreamer and a bit of a go-getter; so, this year, I’ve quadrupled our beds (mostly sowing straight into our earth, now after a bit of soil loving) and have sown enough to fill them. 👩🏼‍🌾 Oops. Hopefully there are more wins this year. Lucky I love a good challenge! ✨

TIP for cooking dry beans: soak 1 cup of beans overnight with 1/2 tsp of baking soda. The baking soda will breakdown the wall of the bean, making them more MOIST. After washing the beans, I’ll boil the beans with 1/2 tsp of baking soda, adding a little garlic and onion powder, with one bay leaf. Turn down the heat & bring to a simmer until tender. I don’t add salt until the end. I’ve read that the salt will dry out the beans - which from experience I can confirm. (Note, I don’t do this type of preparation with lentils, I just cook them, no baking soda needed). Using this method I’ve always had moist & tasty beans! 🌏 💁🏻‍♀️ I don’t believe bulk food shopping is for everyone & it’s a fallacy to believe that you’ll save 10-25% on your groceries buying package-free items in bulk (at least where I live). Although, I’ve found spices sooooo much cheaper at bulk food stores. 🙀 For me my grocery shopping bill has been about the same, mostly because I like cooking and make a lot of my own snacks. BUT it isn’t for everyone, and a low waste lifestyle is different depending on your own circumstance. Don’t feel bad if you can’t fit your waste into a mason jar 👌🏽 I’ve done a little price comparison of some of the popular beans. The organic beans are marked with an ** 🍊Chickpeas - >Woolworths - $5.33/kg >Coles -$4.30/kg >Grandma’s Pantry (GP) - $8.90/kg **Source Bulk Foods (Source)- $19/kg **Naked Foods (NF) -$10.50/kg 🍊Black beans - >Woolworths - $6/kg >Coles -$5.65/kg >GP - $8.90/kg >Source - $7/kg >NF -$10.50/kg 🍊Green Lentils - >Woolworths - $6.13/kg >Coles - $4.80/kg >GP - $9.90/kg **Source - $12/kg >NF -n/a (organic french green lentils available at $18/kg) 🍊Kidney Beans - >Woolworths - n/a >Coles -$4.50/kg >GP - $9.90/kg >Source - $10/kg >NF -$11.20/kg 🍊 Hi!

If you have been following our story (and thank you those who have), you’ll know we talk a lot about our bladder system and the 80% reduction in plastic it delivers compared to 2lt milk bottles. But have you ever wondered what that actually looks like? Check out this display of The Juggler on a bench made from 18 milk crates each containing 9 x 2lt bottles – that’s 162 empty plastic milk bottles. And see those empty bladders sitting on the top of the unit? That little pile is the equivalent in empty 10 litre bladders.

It's finally cooled down enough to turn the oven on and I made - no, not cake... mung bean bread 😃 This was a bit of a breakfast staple of mine for a while but since the house move I hadn't made it. Was getting into a bit of a habit of eating white toast for breakfast and wanted to feel a bit healthier 😊 There's a recipe on my blog with more details but essentially the recipe is this: 250g dried mung beans, soaked overnight and and unsprouted ones removed. Blend with 1 small clove garlic and 1 tbsp rosemary. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C In a separate bowl mix juice of a lemon 🍋, 1/2 tsp salt, 120ml warm water, 2 tbsp oil. Add 1/2 tsp bicarb and the mix will fizz. Stir and mix this fizzy mixture into the mung bean batter, then pour into baking tin (I used a 20cm round tin here). Cook for 35-45 mins until golden on top. Tastes best warm so if not eating straightaway, just warm up a little before serving. Will keep a few days (unless it's in my household 😳)

Did you know that food waste decomposing in landfills releases methane which is a greenhouse gas that is at least 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide. You can help reduce food going to landfill by supporting food outlets selling their delicious end of day excess food on Y Waste's app. It's as simple as that - and in return you save heaps of money. #landfill #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #foodwaste #reducefoodwaste #waronwaste #waronwasteau #environment #ecotec #envirotech #australia #backpacking #food #travelingaustralia #sydney #tasmania #melbourne #brisbane #perth #adelaide #northernterritory #foodapp #ywasteapp

There are a couple of this wrong with this photo, can you identify them? Firstly, since this is a co-mingled recycling bin recyclables should be loose within the bin so that when the truck is emptied for sorting the bagged recyclables isn’t sent to landfill with the assumption that it is non-recyclable waste as they cannot see the waste. Secondly, the bin is overflowing. This can cause issues as our pesky crows/ravens will peck and pull waste out of the bins causing litter issues (plus plastic is definitely not meant to be eaten!). So let’s keep our home recycling bins bag free and ensure the bin isn’t overflowing. If you do have extra waste, make sure you are flattening boxes, ask your friends or neighbours if you can put some in their bin (don’t do it without permission), or if it is consistently full look for ways to reduce your packaging usage. #waronwaste #howtorecycle #waronwasteau #reduceyourimpact #writesolutions

For some, modern cloth nappies can be a bit daunting, so swim nappies are a great way to save some waste without committing to the whole change.

Coral reefs around the world are in crisis. Under pressure from climate change, overfishing, trawling, pollution and introduced species, coral colonies and fish communities are steadily deteriorating. One way to address this is through reef restoration. Of course, some scientists argue that reef restoration is a band-aid for the enormous problems that reefs face and that's true, but currently all our restoration is. We destroyed it and we need to attempt to restore it, remembering that prevention would have been better than intervention.⁠ ⁠ At its simplest, reef restoration involves the addition of coral or habitat to a reef. It’s generally undertaken on existing coral reefs, but can also be done on rocky reefs or bare sand. ⁠ ⁠ There are a lot of coral restoration projects happening across the world including the Great Barrier Reef.⁠ ⁠ Important note: if we hit 1.5C degrees of warming, scientists predict 70 - 90% of our reefs will disappear. At 2C that prediction is 99%. It's therefore absolutely imperative we stop further global heating. If we don't, all these efforts will be largely in vein.

My last batch of Barista bar soap went into the moulds today! Made with upcycled coffee grounds from my kitchen that I dry out and #reuse it’s full of beautiful plant oils: olive, coconut & macadamia along with unrefined Shea butter and unrefined cacao butter. It’s also got a hefty dose of organic cinnamon and Tasmanian honey and smells amazing! 😍 Tomorrow these loafs will come out of their moulds and I’ll cut them into 20 bars approximately 100g each. Some end up weighing a bit more, but that’s just the luck of the draw when you’re making something by hand. After about 10 days I’ll be able to stamp them with my logo and then after another 2 weeks they’ll be ready to go out into the world. All my soap comes in a simple compostable label. And while the post pak isn’t plastic-free Australia Post will recycle it if you return it to your local post office - or even better you can reuse it. If you haven’t tried handmade cold process soap you really are in for a treat. My WOWW soaps are super moisturising and feel so lovely. This one is a scrub bar and it’s really invigorating. I use it twice a week and it’s 👌for removing the old layers of skin that build up. I managed to crank out 3 batches of soap today! A double batch of all my bars - a new record for me! I’m ready for the Christmas rush now. If you haven’t already, please DM me to preorder. I’m doing a special of all 3 bars for $30 or $13 each. 😘 Once they’re gone that’s it for the year... so if you want some let me know ASAP so I can save you some! #waronwasteweekly #waronwaste #waronwasteau #coldprocesssoap #wowwzerowastesoap #woww #handmadesoap #thebaristabar #plasticfree

☼⁠ SUSTAINABLE PARENTING ☼⁠⠀ ⠀ It can certainly be hard being conscious and sustainable as a parent. Kids use so much STUFF and always want all of the junky plastic stuff that you just don't want them to have.⠀ ⠀ We can't be perfect as mums, I think it's the same with food, we can't totally restrict them of all of the sugar or snack food but we can try our best in the areas that we have control over.⠀ ⠀ I would love to share more about the ways that we try to practice sustainability with our kids in terms of things like clothes, shoes, toys, instilling values etc.⠀ ⠀ One thing that you can do that makes a huge impact is to try your best to cut down on nappies. I know it can be hard, but honestly, as mamas we are washing clothes all the time anyway.. What's a another load every few days in the grand scheme?⠀ ⠀ Again, we arent perfect here, but we use @ecoriginals when we are out and when Luna was a newborn, and we try to use cloth at home and when we are close by.⠀ ⠀ So here are my tips and real life advice for cloth nappying⠀ ⠀ 1️⃣You are going to get poo on your hands. Its just gonna happen and you have to get over it haha⠀ ⠀ 2️⃣Helping to deal with poo - i just go for it, and then i wash my hands really well and put a few drops of tea tree into the sink with hot water to get rid of the odour and make everything feel clean and fresh again!⠀ ⠀ 3️⃣Dry soaking makes it so much simpler - gone are the days of soaking your flat nappies in water that turns into the most foul poo soup… then having to scoop them out.. Now you dry soak (hallelujah!) so just get a bucket that has airflow and leave the wee nappies in there until your ready to wash. For the poo nappies give them a rinse off and then dry soak also.⠀ ⠀ 4️⃣Washing day (at least ever 2 days), do a mini quick ‘rinse wash’ first, it's just a 10min rinse and then I do a hot wash with natural liquid and a drop of tea tree oil. The tea tree really helps with keeping them smelling fresh!⠀ ⠀ 5️⃣Its honestly not as daunting as it seems! And when you purchase your base nappies, they will last years! I got mine from @bareandboho and they basically double as clothes in summer, making them well worth the investment!

I'm wearing a #subtractioncut dress (once was doona cover) which I made with inspo and guidance from WornOUT designer @daroscouture after last year's show (we have a workshop planned for Nov 29 if interested). #WornOut2019 #refashion #wearable art #choosetoreuse #upcycling #thefutureofwaste #waronwasteau #slowclothing #circulareconomy #princesstheatre

I've come up with a brilliant zero waste water play! Repurposing hubby's holey socks (!clean!) into sponge like balls as water balloon/bombs! Refill quicker than water bombs too! Splat! My production system in the shade on this lovely afternoon while the kids played in the paddle pool..... I used up something like 24 socks in the process of making 12 water socks. Woo!

Why use biodegradable cotton buds? . Plastic cotton buds have been consistently listed in the top ten forms of beach litter in surveys by the Marine Conservation Society. These cotton swabs that end up in landfills or the oceans can take hundreds of years to degrade and cause serious damages. The organic Bamboo Cotton Buds are biodegradable which makes them an eco-friendly option. . #zerowaste #zerowastehome #zerowastepackaging #reusable #zerowastekit #waronwasteau #zerowastecollective #bamboocortonbuds #plasticfree #wastefreeplanet #recycle #sustainable #wastefree #reduce #ecoconcious #take3forthesea #ecowarrior #ourplanetourhome #wastefreeliving #bamboo #reducecarbonfootprint #afterpayaustralia #zerowastecollective #environmentallyfriendly #earthstribe #earthstribeaustralia

We gave a good crack at trying to get a mould made in Vietnam, but we just didn’t have enough time or language skills to pull it off. The plastics industry is still a bit of a mystery to us, and approaching large manufacturing companies can be wrought with challenges for a tiny social enterprise such as us! • • • ☝🏼We had much more success speaking to a small roadside stamp maker (The Real Stamp Shop, Hanoi) who made us a great little plastic free business card stamp👩🏼‍💻🌱🙌🏼🤗 We frequently get asked for business cards, an item we find very outdated and which belongs in the realm of awkward networking events🙄🙄. As you may have realised, we really dislike plastic waste, but we also know paper is something we cannot afford to waste either, that’s why we choose to carry a stamp with us and stamp our details on any scrap of paper (or your forehead) when it’s needed 😁 👩🏼‍💻👩‍🎨🌱 • • • #guerrillanetworking #businessesthatgraffiti #stampystamp #womenentrepreneurs #socialenterprise #startup #ethicalstartup #reusable #refusereducereuserecycle #reuse #waronwaste #businesscards #businesscarddesign #environmentallyfriendly #handmade #hanoi #handmadeinhanoi #makersgonnamake #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreelivingaustralia #socialenterprisemelbourne #melbourne #waronwasteau
