🇫🇷➰ La cup ➰ Un sujet qui me tient à cœur et qu’on ne voit pas dans les comptes fitness c’est la CUP. Et oui les menstruations pour les femmes font partis de notre routine (avec joies 😂 svp). Je vous encourage à l’utiliser. L’essayer c’est l’adopter. Pourquoi l’utiliser ? Ayant un projet de tour du monde (départ prévu dans 2 mois), j’ai pensé que c’était la protection idéale. ➰Les avantages➰ 🔸Plus naturel, elle respecte la flore vaginale 🔸Plus longue durée de protection 🔸Economique (une femme dépenserait environ 20 000€ au cours de sa vie en protection) 🔸Réduction des risques de chocs toxiques 🔸Plus pratique (elle se porte sans qu’on ne s’en aperçoive, pensez à l’été en maillot de bain !) 🔶Fini les odeurs. Et vous faites-vous partie de la team tampons/serviettes ou cup ? Petit conseil : si vous utilisez un stérilet, demander à votre gynécoloque de couper court les fils (le mien est tombé hier…) - 🇺🇸A topic that is close to my heart and not seen in fitness accounts is the CUP. And yes menstruation for women are part of our routine I encourage you to use it. To try it is to adopt it. Why use it? Having a world tour project (departure scheduled in 2 months), I thought it was the ideal protection. Advantages: 🔸More natural, it respects the vaginal flora 🔸Longer term of protection 🔸Economic (a woman would spend about 20 000 € during her life in protection) 🔸Reduced risk of toxic shocks 🔸More practical (it is worn without us noticing, think of summer in swimsuit!) 🔸No smells. And you are part of the team tampons / towels or cup? Tip: if you use an IUD, ask your gynecologist to cut the threads (mine fell yesterday ...). - . #coupemenstruelle #health #femmes #hygiene #fitgirl #fitfrenchies #fitfamily #gym #noexcuses #fitfam #healthylifestyle #fitnesslife #girlswholift #blogger #teamfit #workout #gethealthy #workhard #tbt #globetrotter #naturelovers #instafit #ecology #trainhard #women #zerowaste #reducewaste #instafollow #naturel

Choosing #upcycled products is one way of "closing the loop" when we talk about the #recycling process. . Less raw materials and energy used in making new items, helps #reducewaste in our locality and making sure that #recycled things are actually used for regular activities. . #thehandmaidph #floursacktotebag #totebags #totebagsph #shoppingbags #shoppingbagph #sustainableph #sustainable #sustainablecraft #ecofriendlyph #ecofriendly #zerowastejourney #zerowaste #zerowasteph #notoplastic #stopplasticpollution #plasticfreejuly

I have always found these images very powerful and sad because it's true- the bag looks so similar to the jellyfish from a distance. I recently saw a video with plastic bags being removed from a live turtle and it's just awful. Yesterday, I was a 'jellyfish' to demonstrate the impact of plastic littering. The jellyfish were made (by @manxwt) with clear umbrellas with strips of plastic cut and taped to it and they looked really amazing. But by carrying it, it reinforced to me how easily one could be mistaken for food by marine animals. It was very difficult to capture but @kate.is.winging.it held hers very well so here's a shot with her. I think people we just need to be really careful with what we choose and how we dispose of it. I know for many of us, we do not dispose into our seas but many countries still do. Make the swaps, choose #plasticfree and see if we can make a difference because I believe one person can 🌍💚🌍💚🌍💚🌍💚🌍💚 #reducewaste #zerowaste #reducereuserecycle #greenliving #earthfriendly #sustainablyliving #environmental #sustainableliving #zerowasteliving #sustainablelifestyle #fairlyethicalfamily #refillrevolution #noexcuseforsingleuse #ditchdisposables #nomoresingleuse #manxplasticpledge #saynotoplastic #noplastic #plasticfreejuly2018 #sustainabilitymatters #passonplastic #nomoreplastic #plasticfree #reduceplastic

Who has been trying to be plastic-free this month? Another way I try to reduce plastic use is by using stainless steel straws and my thermos mug. These are the straws for smoothies, they came in a pack of four so you can store one in your lunchbox for work, pop one in the car incase you go out for a bite. They are my favourite! These are @caliwoods_eco. I bought them from my local Bin Inn but you can shop online. My travel mug is Thermocafé by @thermosbrand purchased from my local @thewarehousenz. They also had a sale on Living & Co. Reusable mugs for $3. So reducing waste doesnt have to be expenso ________________________________ #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #reducewaste

Another item that is a habit buy are disposable razors and razor blades. We can easily switch to a safety razor with stainless steel blades. I did this and you get a really good close shave, with only one blade. The adverts are wrong! You can get super cheap (albeit plastic) safety razors at places like clicks or Dischem, then you just buy a box of the blades. Look at flea markets, antique shops and also ask grandparents, they might even have beautiful old ones in their cabinets! You can also get loads of different ones from @bundubeard. These make great gifts too. #zerowastejourney #reducewaste #makenewhabits

Few simple ways to cut back on plastic in the bathroom... -Using a bar of soap is great way to minimise waste. No plastic shower gel/soap bottles! They’re also so much better for my skin love @shojo_and_co soaps -Enjo face washers instead of make up removing wipes -Bamboo toothbrush! Once I’m done using it for my oral hygiene I use it to clean the grout in the shower then compost it. 😁 . . . #saynotoplastic #saynotosingleuse #reducewaste #reusablebags #wastefree #plasticfreejuly #sustainableliving #savetheplanet #zerowaste #doingmybit

I have been looking for soap dishes for the longest time and while I wasn't sure what I wanted exactly, I knew I didn't want the standard wooden variety so when I spied these three small pottery bowls at the op shop last week, knew they would be perfect! I'm going to put a few pebbles from a pot plant in the bottom to allow our @pure.ratbag.soap to dry in between uses. That way it will last longer and not go mushy.

"We humans have become dependent on plastic for a range of uses, from packaging to products. Reducing our use of plastic bags is an easy place to start getting our addiction under control." - David Suzuki Another less waste market day. It's good to invest in these containers as they can be reused and are freezable. 🍖🍗🐟 #inspiredandintentionalliving #zeroplastic #reducereuserecycle #reducewaste #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #ecoliving #ecoconscious #environmentalist

My fourth attempt at DIY muesli bars and we finally have success. The kids love these bars in their lunch boxes but I can’t stand all the individually wrapped bars. This way, I have bought all the ingredients plastic free, I can choose to add or delete some of the ingredients and I know exactly what’s going in them. Pretty chuffed if I do say so myself. . . . . . #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly #mueslibars #homemade #organic #backtoschool #zerowaste #lowwaste #refusereducereuserecyclerot #reusereducerecycle #reducewaste #saveourplanet #saveouroceans #saveourseas #composting #kidslife #idratherbesavingtheplanet #❤️🌏

Seeing plastic trash clinging to the reef below this boardwalk is why I persist even while the plastics are against me while I live here. 🚯 Putting something in a kerbside bin is never a guarantee of where it will end up or who it will harm. You’d be appalled by how much is lost during the process into the litter stream. Plastics don’t biodegrade unless they’re made from the right materials and composted in the right heated conditions, otherwise they’re just out there suffocating wildlife and leaching toxins into the water we rely on to survive. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Reduce reduce reduce! 💙💚🌊

Going back to the office on another Monday, can be an inspiring journey. 👨🏻‍💻👩🏽‍🔬👩🏼‍💼👨🏽‍💼 Commit to wasting less at your workplace today. Only print what’s important, write your notes online, say no to disposable cutlery, and declutter. Give space to what matters. ✨ العودة إلى المكتب بعد العطلة، قد تكون بداية رحلة ملهمة. التزم باستهلاك أقل في مكان عملك اليوم. فقط اطبع ما هو مهم، اكتب ملاحظاتك رقمياً، وقل لا لأدوات المائدة التي تستخدم لمرة واحدة. اعط مساحة للاشياء المهمة ✨

So this is my "reduced plastic" shopping from today for Plastic Free July. This is the first year we have taken the #plasticfreejuly challenge. Though we are pretty careful generally we have already made some changes to our normal routine. A few things we have started doing: *asking for our deli meat and cheese to be put in our own containers (have done it twice with no problems either time). *not buying strawberries bc they are only in plastic packaging:( buying only loose fruit instead. *buying sweet potatoes to make fries instead of buying frozen. A few things we always do to reduce waste: *byo bag! I bring small bags for produce, bread bags for bulk items (the rice in this picture is in a reused bagel bag), and bags for the end. I put them on the doorhandle so that I don't forget to take them back to the car. *buy pasta in cardboard instead of plastic *if you can't buy it without plastic buy the biggest quantity available to reduce the amount of plastic used. We use vinegar to pre wash our cloth diapers and I cannot find it without plastic so I buy I giant jug of it. It's not perfect but it's progress!

Plastic free bulk laundry and dishwashing liquid. We can pour it into any receptacle container♻️ Available at our online shop link in bio☝🏼 #plasticfreejuly #reuse #repurpose #reducewaste #breakfreefromplastic @clintrread

This past week, I have started a habit of bringing my own take out bowls to local eateries to somehow help reduce waste in a country where sachets and plastic bags is a norm for just about everything to go. I have been getting the stares and whispers from people but who cares, a little gossip is nothing compared to the favor ur doing to ur only home in the universe. #forplanetearth #captainplanet #letsgoplanet #planeteers #rescuetheplanet #cutwaste #reducewaste #skiptheplastic #eatresponsibly #lunchtime #lunch #foodgram #foodie #foodporn

Australians use over 10 million straws a day!!!! This is causing terrible environmental issues 😢 We have taken a stand to reduce our waste and if you want to join the cause you can get one of these metal straws with a cute locally made cloth cover from our retail shelf. It's time to stop using single use plastic straws ❤️ #reducewaste #metalstraw #environment #ourplanet #ourhome

When I was little I often wondered if my grandparents had parties without inviting us. We would arrive for Sunday lunch to find their kitchen festooned with foil, strung up like bunting. . . Looking back, it was probably only one or two pieces but it stuck in my mind and created a lifelong habit. Aluminium foil has never been a single use product in my family. . . Although aluminium is the third most abundant element, the mining, production and refining is incredibly energy intensive. By contrast recycling aluminium uses only 5% of that energy. . . Aluminum is infinitely recyclable but it's important to treat this precious resource with respect. If you can use a dish with a lid to bake or a wax wrap or container to deal with leftovers, they're better options. . . If you do use foil, wash and reuse it as much as you can. When it's at the end of its usefulness collect all the pieces until you can roll it into a fist sized ball and pop it in the recycling. . . #choosetoreuse #neutralwaste #noexcuseforsingleuse #noneedfornew #ourplanetourhome #reducewaste #refuse #refusesingleuse #rethink #reuse #saynotosingleuse #slowliving #sustainability #thelowimpactmovement #usewhatyougot #waronwaste #waronwasteau #wastefree #wasteneutral #zerowaste #zerowastecollective #zerowasteliving #pepitasandpistachios

Plastic Free July Day 16 - SHOP THE OUTER PART OF GHE GROCERY STORE – This is a great exercise for #plasticfreejuly. Bring some reusable produce bags or any bags you have laying around and avoid going into any aisles. This is where all the snacks live. 🍫 This is the best way to avoid all the food packaged in plastic. You’ll also eat a lot healthier as a result. Whole Foods gives 5 cents for every bag you bring so bring ALL THE BAGS! #protip #fruitsandveggies #nopackagedfood #nopreservatives #veggies #plasticfreefood #fortheloveoffood #unnecessaryplastic #plasticfreejuly #choosetorefuse #dontcallmetrashy #refusethebag #refuse #usewhatyouhave #zerowaste #zerowastejourney #zerowastelifestyle #reuse #reducewaste #reducereuserecycle #noplastic #plasticfree #livingzerowaste #packagefree #waronwaste #lowimpact

rest for all the wooden spatulas in the kitchen. cleaned...dried and coated with olive oil. i recently found that use of olive oil on wooden kitchen utensils will prolong the duration of them. In the monsoon, every other day the dampness causing fungal growth and i decided to try this 😊🙏 i know that this is several in a batch and i might cut down their numbers soon as part of easy minimal approach 😊 #reducewaste #liveconsciously #woodenspatulas #oliveoil #reuse #consciousliving #sustainablelifestyle #beingsimple #backtobasics

Here's my first big obstacle to the #plasticfreejulychallenge: to-go fast food drinking cups. It's easy to avoid using #plastic lids when sitting down to eat, but what about when I'm on-the-go? Soda is my guilty pleasure so I can't NOT get it & I certainly don't wanna deal with the possibility of it spilling all over my car. I looked up @burgerking's menu & found that their small soft drink size is 16 fl oz. (I assume other fast food chains use the same size cup.) Well, so is my #reusable @starbucks cup (& a couple other @tervis #tumblers I own). Thus I pose the question: has anyone successfully gotten a fast food chain to fill their reusable cups from home without complaint or objection? 🤔 #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly #choosetorefuse #reducewaste #wastefree #zerowaste #passonplastic #beatplasticpollution #ecoconscious #ecofriendly #recycle #reduce #refuse #reuse #avoidlandfillwaste #reduceyourecofootprint #protecttheocean

Coinciding with the one-year anniversary of our “Waste for English” lessons, we are proud to announce that we have collected a total of 10,000 waste items for recycling! On Thursday (July 5, 2018), we had our own little celebration with the Bali Starling Eco-Warriors. We handed out awards to our top three waste collectors. First place winner Desak Ria collected 1,115 waste items, second place winner Meta collected 599 waste items, and third place winner Melia collected 426 waste items. The winners received certificates, a reuseable water bottle, and a reuseable food container. Then time to celebrate and share rainbow and black-forest cakes. These Eco-Warriors are proud of their achievements, and we extend our appreciation for their support in collecting all 10,000 waste items. Let’s hope that the number of waste collected for this year will be increased! #balistarlingecowarriors #balistarlingambassadors #dutajalakbali #wasteforenglish #education #edukasi #redusereuserecycle #reducewaste #zeroplastic#nomorewaste #balitanpaplastik #balibebassampah #yayasanbegawan #begawanfoundation #indonesia #bali
