I love this so much. BYO take out containers. :) I mean, you can do this anywhere, who's going to tell you no? But, very cool to see neighbourhoods normalizing it! ❤️🌎

Did the math. Works out to 8¢/load.

Long but very interesting read about plastic recycling. ♻️ If you MUST buy bottled water, read on to find out which Canadian company you can support who uses 100% recycled plastic in their bottles. ❤️🇨🇦
The recycling symbol may give the comforting impression that your plastic pop or water bottle will be recycled into other plastic bottles again and again. Unfortunately, there’s a good chance it won’t become even one new bottle. Here’s what really happens — and what's needed to boost recycli...

A pair of Edmontonians have launched a zero-waste market they hope will increase interest in eco-friendly shopping.
May 2020 be the year we all begin considering where all our waste goes. Yes it's pretty for 2 minutes, but let's be real, that lantern isn't going to heaven, it's going to land somewhere. Things that can be eliminated easily from celebrations and replaced with natural or reusable items: balloons, all paper streamers and decorations, confetti, sparkles.

Thank you so much Hannah & Leah for inviting me to participate in this event. I am truly inspired and thinking of what I can do next. This is a deep passion of mine; to remove barriers that some of us take for granted. Good work! Merry Christmas ❤️🙏🎄🎁
Upon reflection (haa, see what I see there) the best choice I ever made was switching to a #divacup There's lots of other options out there too though. #mooncup #thekeeper Sometimes finding your fit is all it takes. And if you find it turns out to not be an option, #hannahpads & #lunapads are just some of the super soft and organic alternatives for sustainable products. What is your #ecoconscious New Years resolution?

There’s only a few places that make me feel at peace. One is sitting on the earth, on a cool summer night, soaking up the radiating heat of a crackling fire. It opens a connection to all the beings who came before me and all the beings who will follow. I get lost in the dancing flames and flickers and follow the whispers and whines of the embers.
When I think about all the things in this world that I want to change; cruelty to animals, the demolition of forests and delicate habitat, the absurd amount of garbage I see everywhere, the cultural acceptance of inhumane farming, the electronic device take-over, the alarming rise in depression & suicide, the tunnel vision ignoring most things not impacting us directly (the list is so, so long).
I get overwhelmed.
I want to change it all...but I don’t know how or where to start.
So I don’t.
I close the animal cruelty videos. I skip the heart-wrenching videos of homeless people in a city less than an hour from my home. I look the other way when I drive past the cows & pigs on the highway in a trailer on the way to the slaughterhouse. I keep buying from companies that I know don’t give a sh*t about the earth, the people who work for them or the people who use their garbage-filled products.
I started asking myself,
“What can I change right now? What are the things that I have control over right this instant.”
My shortlist consisted of:
So I decided to make a few changes that I could handle, that only involved me.
Not my family or my partner. Just me.
I stopped using pads and tampons and switched to a menstrual cup. I became part of the #halttheassault revolution. No more toxic chemicals and absorbent products directly in my body (right next to some seriously important parts). I don’t have to continuously buy more products that are packaged in plastic and I am not contributing any more waste from the used product. Ya...it’s kind of gross when you really think about it.
Every morning I brew my own coffee at home and pour a to-go bottle for class. Until I know the coffee giants are ethically sourcing their beans and not destroying the planet for palm oil, they will not get 1 more toonie from me. Plus, now my coffee supports Canadian companies like Birch Bark Coffee Co. who are people like you and I; people making a difference in this world.
I use bamboo utensils. Yes, I’m totally a nerdy gear-loving-eco-freako (HA Nina!) that loves getting sideways stares from strangers when I bust out my bamboo fork or chopsticks. What? You just jealous. Eating off plastic is bad enough. I just can’t stand the side serving of guilt knowing it’s going to end up in a “landfill” for 5 gazshillion years after 5 minutes of use.
So there you have it. 3 simple steps I took to quickly and positively impact my body, my conscience, the earth and my wallet.
And basically, the name of my shop, “It’s All Good” is what I want in all the products I use. Good for me, good for the people who produced it, and good for the earth. Simple. And since I tell everyone about the DivaCup anyway, it’s the product I chose to focus on first.
Thank you for listening to your heart, you wouldn’t be here if you weren’t feeling the need for change too. Keep searching & asking.
