They grow up so fast 😭 I can’t believe how much can change over the course of a year - these big guys (picture 2) started out as avocados from the grocery store. I wrapped the seeds in damp paper towels and waited a few weeks, then set them in repurposed @traderjoes spice jars. Now they’re in 10” pots taking over our kitchen 😂 I love being able to make the most out of my food - including the seeds from my produce Have you tried regrowing anything? I currently have peppers, avocados, bok choy, and green onions planted from produce 🫑 #avocado #avocadotree #regrow #regrowveggies #regrowing #veggiegarden #Ecofriendly #eco #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #wastefree #wastefreeliving #sustainable #sustainability #sustainableliving #zerowastekitchen #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastetips #zerowastelife #zerowastejourney #zerowastefood #ny #nyc #nycblogger #houseplants #houseplantlove #houseplant #houseplantcommunity

With the year halfway over, here are the most-liked swaps for 2022 so far! You’ve all shared so many tips surrounding these swaps and I’m so grateful for your excitement about living more sustainably ☺️💚 How many of these swaps do you currently do? Do you have any advice? #Ecofriendly #eco #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #wastefree #wastefreeliving #sustainable #sustainability #sustainableliving #zerowastekitchen #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastetips #zerowastelife #zerowastejourney #zerowastefood #ny #nyc #nycblogger #lowwaste #lowwasteliving

Let’s talk US diets: A recent studies showed that a gradual waning appetite for meat and dairy over the past 20 years has resulted in the decrease of greenhouse gas emissions of US diets by 35% Using data from a national dietary survey of US adults from 2003-2018, researchers discovered that diet-related greenhouse gas emissions nearly halved. They discovered that over 15 years, daily beef consumption fell an average of 40% per person. Dairy, eggs, chicken, and pork consumption also fell during this time period. Are people being more mindful of what they eat? What do you think?

Stopped by @momsorganicmarket in #paramus yesterday to film some of their awesome low waste grocery options (video on its way) and before I even got in the store, I knew I was going to love it because they had bug hotels outside 🥺 Bug hotels give insects such a ladybugs and bees a safe space to seek shelter, lay eggs, and seek refuge from predators It was really cool to see this coming from a local business! Hopefully people will see it and get inspired to build their own ☺️ #bughotel #savethebees #savetheplanet #savetheworld #savetheearth #gardening #garden #sustainability #ecofriendly #lowwastejourney #lowwaste #zerowaste #sustainableliving #sustainable #paramusnj

A little affirmation, if you will, to remind my plant to survive despite my inconsistent watering 😅 This came from a cutting of a plant that I got at @aldiusa of all places and it has legitimately taken over my entire bathroom 😮 #Ecofriendly #eco #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #wastefree #wastefreeliving #sustainable #sustainability #sustainableliving #zerowastekitchen #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastetips #zerowastelife #zerowastejourney #houseplants #houseplant #houseplantlove #houseplantcommunity #houseplantsofinstagram #houseplantsmakemehappy #houseplantclub

Some #goodnews for your Friday: The U.S. Department of the Interior announced the cancellation of 3 offshore oil and gas drilling lease sales in Alaska’s Cook Inlet and the Gulf of Mexico, citing disinterest and legal delays. “The move means millions of acres of coastal waters will no longer be sold and subject to fossil fuel extraction. And, more broadly, it also means the U.S. won’t be holding any offshore lease sales at all this year, as those were the only ones on the docket. The Alaska leasing area would’ve covered about 1.09 million acres of the Lower Cook Inlet, a waterway bordered by the Kenai Peninsula and Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. There are glacier-topped mountains on all sides and an endangered population of beluga whales.” (Excerpt from Gizmodo.com) #climatenews #econews #Ecofriendly #eco #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #wastefree #wastefreeliving #sustainable #sustainability #sustainableliving #zerowastekitchen #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastetips #zerowastelife #zerowastejourney

Something really cool we did on our vacation this year: everyone brought similar books and we swapped as we finished them ☺️ Normally I pack 2-3 books, but this trip I only had to bring one and I got to read some great new stuff!

Coming at you with some recent #econews: In a 600 page document known as the “Easter Package,” Germany has laid out plans to reach 100% renewable energy by 2035. The plan includes: - increasing land-based wind power by 10 gigawatts a year to reach 115 gigawatts by 2030 - increasing solar by 22 gigawatts a year to reach 215 by 2030 - reaching 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030, 40 by 2035, and at least 70 by 2045 What do you think of this news?

No single-use napkins in this household 🙌 We switched to reusable cloth napkins that we just throw in the wash and it’s been really cool to see one more item not thrown away after meals here What do you think about this swap? #sustainability #ecofriendly #sustainableliving #sustainable #clothnapkins #zerowaste #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #lowwastelifestyle #lowwastejourney #lowwastemovement #lowwastelife #lowwastehome #zerowastekitchen #sustainableswaps

It took this little guy SO LONG to grow roots, I was starting to think it would never find its way into a pot 😅 But how good does that neon green look against the black pot??

I’m back with more sustainable swaps! This one is fairly straightforward and that is to swap out your liquid soap in single-use plastic to bar soap. Bar soap tends to come in paper or cardboard packaging, making it a more eco-friendly solution. Don’t want to give up your liquid soap? Here are some other options: - use a liquid soap powder or tablet option (like @blueland or @helloproducts) - use an aluminum option (like @grovecollaborative) - find a local refill shop and refill the one you have - create your own liquid soap using bar soap Plenty of options to make it more attainable!

Friends, I have been absolutely MIA this week enjoying the beautiful country of Portugal ☺️ I’ll be back in a few days with plenty of good posts. Thanks for your patience!

Low waste tip: save your (unsalted) water from boiling pasta, eggs, steaming veggies, or whatever and let it cool down - then take it and water your plants (indoor or outdoor) with it! It’s a great way to reduce water usage and make the most out of water that you would normally just dump down the drain 💧 #Ecofriendly #eco #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #wastefree #wastefreeliving #sustainable #sustainability #sustainableliving #zerowastekitchen #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastetips #zerowastelife #zerowastejourney #zerowastefood
