On Monday I woke up sick in bed and feeling low…
I started watching youtube videos The Story Of Bottle Water as I saw the video last week… after sharing the info with a friend over the weekend I wanted to re-watch it as some of the info I couldn’t remember…. but it said that…like bottled water is a 2000 x more than tap water.
YouTube, after shared this other video which I watched, was 20 hacks to zero-waste living I was reminded of a few other hacks that I wasn’t trying yet so looking into them.
As I read a blog post about Plastic Free Life Hacks by favourite fashion label SPELL & The Gypsy Collective that is promoting a lot of information about Plastic Free July on there social media and I am guilty of watching there feed daily as I get a lot of inspiration from them not just in the fashion but also visually there brand creates a lifestyle look you want to embrace at home.
One of the recommendations was to download the Recycle Coach app… which I did and found a Quiz on What Type of Recycler Are You… I was shocked by how I was recycling a few things WRONG!
My score was 70/100 average score for Western Australia is 55
There is a lot I learnt that I didn’t know… I have been an adamant ADVOCATE to recycle my whole life and I still am getting a few things WRONG
So I woke up Tuesday still sick and kind of helpless in bed started to watch a few videos this time on cosmetic industry… again got angry with the information received. But in the back of my mind, I kind of already knew that the industry was bad but not exactly how… and I quickly posted on Facebook for ways to replace my make up I have. Friends instantly shared these brands with me – Nourished Life and Lush
Next, I watched a Ted Talk by Lauren Singer – who I remember seeing on Wanderlust Yoga Festival Speakeasy talk about her DIY hacks to replacing deodorant not knowing she was running a business to help create awareness about Zero waste lifestyle.
I just enjoyed her DIY hacks as I love finding new ways to do home remedies especially when I started learning about essential oils which that journey started April 2017 when my friend/yogi colleague Jess Mariae introduced me and is a massive advocate to being toxic free home. She always shares her tips on how essential oils can help you with everything and being sick… I jumped out of bed and got my oils and made myself a oregano, peppermint, franki, lemon, on guard capsules and they have been helping me for the past few days!
After that I jumped back into bed and watched EVERY youtube video from Lauren Singer Trash is For Tossers and read all her posts on zero-waste… but still wanted to know more… which led me to Bea Johnson a mother and the creator of the Zero Waste Home GLOBAL movement and watched every video she has done on Tedtalks, Google and youtube… and all I can I have learnt a lot on my sick day.
