Low waste candles 🕯
Seriously how handy are glass jars?! I upcycle my jars and take them to @genericseshop where they turn them into cute candles! The candle in the pic is gingerbread scent and let me tell ya, it smells heavenly 😌
My fav time to light my candles is at night when I turn down the house lights. It creates a cute, cosy vibe and helps me get into sleepy mode, as well as saves electricity!
When purchasing candles opt for wax that is vegan, cruelty free (avoid wax that contains phthalates and parabens as this is toxic), and a sustainably harvested wooden or cotton wick. And don’t forget to reuse your candle containers or refill them with more wax to make another candle! 💚 ...

WHENEVER YOU DOUBT:
your own resilience, capabilities and strength,
look no farther than these plant cuttings
for inspiration and guidance.
They’ve been severed and broken into pieces,
forced away from their “home”
or their “mothers”
Yet time and time again
without hesitation or thought
they root and reroot
to ground themselves.
The law of nature teaches us
that you can pick yourself up
to start over again and again.
And that you can belong anywhere,
wherever that may be,
if you just have some faith.

Banishing those Pilates Myths 🤓
1️⃣ “Pilates is easy – it’s just lying on a mat stretching”
Whoever is saying this has clearly never done my classes before 😂! Pilates is extremely challenging. The moves may look sweet and innocent but WOW do they burn and get results. We work on strengthening the smaller, stabilising muscles through slow controlled movements, to create a beautifully balanced body 😍.
However the beauty of Pilates is that it can be adapted for different groups and different needs. This is why it’s highly recommended for pre/post natal, rehabilitation and the older population too. Just make sure you’re attending the right class for you 👌🏻

Just a reminder that no one can ever be perfectly sustainable - for one, sustainability means different things to different people. We also live in a system that requires us to consume, where everything seems to be in plastic and where sustainability isn’t yet accessible to everyone.
So remember that sustainability is a journey & that every change we make, no matter how small or big, will make a difference 🌞🌿 ...
Did you know rice water is packed full of nutrients? It's perfect to help your plants grow! 🌱
Just make sure the water has cooled down before you pour it in 👍
Rice contains starch, which gives the rice water its opaque, white colour. These starches are great for plants, encouraging healthy bacteria that grow in the roots!
Rice also includes nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus, a little bit of these are found in rice water. These minerals all help plants and make them happy!
NOTE: Just make sure the rice water isn't salted!
🚨ANNOUNCEMENT! I'm launching an online zero waste store! Click the link in bio to be alerted when it's open 😊
(All orders are plastic-free and emissions will be offset)
I've also heard rice water makes a great natural hair conditioner, have you tried it as a hair conditioner before?
Are you going to try this? Do you already do this?

Let's talk about TOILET PAPER (and eco options)! 🧻🌎👇⠀
Since toilet paper has been such a popular topic recently, I wanted to share some eco options and information! 🤩⠀
👉 According to one of my favorite climate icons, @going.zero.waste , "If every US household used just ONE roll of 100% post consumer recycled TP a year, it would save 423,900 trees." WHAT!!! Just. One. Roll. ⠀
So here's some info on what that means, TP options, and alternatives! ⠀
• Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) ♻️ - Made from paper that has been previously used (not used toilet paper). Think office or notebook paper. ⠀
• Tree Free 🌳 - Made from, for example, bamboo. Some tree free brands are actually softer than regular toilet paper! ⠀
• Try a Bidet - There are lots of different types, from affordable attachments to seats and hoses. 😮 Check out @hellotushy for more info! ⠀
I've tagged a few of my favorites in the photo! ⠀
Have you ever tried any of these options? 🧐 Let me know! ...
I’m all about a good self help book and this guide helps you make small changes that make a difference for the planet!
