Have you made the switch to bar soap for your dishes yet?
Not only sustainable but this sink set up looks gorgeous 😍
Our current dishwashing set up. We just ran out of our dish soap (we would refill a soap dispenser with Mrs. Meyers dish soap, but now use the dispenser for our hand soap), so we switched over to No Tox Life’s vegan bar dish soap. We are planning on using the rest of our disposable sponges until they break & we’ll replace them with washable @marleysmonsters sponges. Thankful for my husband, who not only enjoys washing dishes for us, but also tested & approved of this swap. ...
Hung a piece of art and tidied a corner of my home and though I’m predicting this level of tidiness will last approximately 12 hours, we gotta celebrate the wins where we can these days ✌️ ...

We're making the Waste Free Planet Magazine FREE!
The last few months have been challenging for everyone, and here at Waste Free Planet we’ve not been immune to the impacts of COVID-19. We’ve had to change and adapt to allow us to continue doing what we love, to continue to inspire and bring awareness to the low waste community.
In order to support the community that supports us, we’ve decided to make the Waste Free Planet Magazine a free publication. Every two months it will continue to be packed with amazing articles from our writing team, delicious recipes and features from our wonderful community.
We’ve carefully considered this change and determine that not only is it in the best interest of our mission to spread awareness of living low waste, but most importantly the community that inspires us and lives it every day.
Now understandably this has some impacts on those that have recently purchased our ‘Lifetime Membership’ for access to the magazine. We’re committed to doing what is best for our customers therefore we will be refunding those who purchased the ‘Lifetime Membership’ in full over the coming weeks.
Due to this change, the May 2020 issue of the magazine will be delayed slightly, however it will be the first of our free issues. By subscribing to our newsletter you will automatically receive each issue as it is released! Sign up via the link in our bio!

👩🌾 Five ways to reduce plastic in your bathroom:
1. Reduce waste gradually, use up products that you already have and once used up or ready to be replaced switch to natural and plastic free alternatives.
2. One of the easiest switch is to simply start using biodegradable cotton buds, there is no reason for a cotton bud to be made out of plastic.
2. Switch to lovely handmade soaps, you can buy soap package free or packaged with biodegradable paper.
3. Switch to a bamboo toothbrush!
4. Use natural floss, there are many fabulous alternatives to nylon.
5. Choose glass and paper packaging over plastic. 🌱 What are your tips on reducing plastic in your bathroom? It’s probably one of the hardest places in your home to make completely zero waste. Remember, one step at a time. Why don’t you start with a plastic free cotton bud 🌵! ...

Who says you won’t wear that bridesmaid dress again?
I wore this gorgeous dress in a friend’s wedding this past fall. Couldn’t bear to let it sit in the back of the closet for years waiting for another occasion, so I took it for a spin for some beach photos. It was fun (and earth-friendly!) to get creative with my closet rather than buying more new clothes, and these are some of my favorite pictures of myself...I will cherish them forever!
What is an item you have in your closet that you’ve only worn once? How could you creatively repurpose or upcycle it?

We individually wrap our packages with love and try to use anything within the boutique to reuse, like boxes or strings and my old name cards from Dubai is used for all packages as the logo card as in the picture 💃🏽✨ I absolutely love up cycling, recycling, basically anything I can repurpose! It brings me joy xx Also added our signature dried flowers 🌷 that I dried myself from the original live plants (just hope it made to you in one piece! ) and we’ve only used paper wrappers. .
Paper-based packaging is one of the most sustainable materials available: it’s recyclable, renewable and has consistently had the highest recycling rate in recent years and, even if it does end up as litter, is still biodegradable. .
In fact, paper biodegrades faster than a leaf! 🍃 .
And those plastic that wraps the clothes when you order from most online stores or even bread plastic, I use it as my bin bags 🍃✨ .
Little by little but collectively we make a difference 🌍 #thisiseclectic ...
