My recent focus on heading to a zero-waste lifestyle is in my smile department. Plastic handles and bristles from toothbrushes are petroleum based and end up in the landfill. Empty plastic toothpaste tubes also make their way to the dump. I went with bamboo toothbrushes because they are biodegradable and way more sustainable than plastic. Even the packaging was done mindfully. All recycled paper and soy based ink for printing.I’m giving @bitetoothpastebits a first try and am excited: I really like the concept and 🤞🏻 it’s a solution that sticks. Bite is a teeth cleaning agent in pill form. It’s all natural, sulfate free and cruelty free. It’s packaged in glass and there’s a recycling program. They are based in sunny, Los Angeles, California. I went with the charcoal option in both since it’s a natural teeth whitener. 🤩I have not found a solution for floss (yet) that works for me. I’m open to suggestions! Smile big and smile bright.  (and take care of our home planet) 🌎

Call me an optimist but I’m pulling out some sundresses; it’s getting warmer and I’m excited. This dress is the newest to my collection. It’s a @patagonia (of course) made with 100% @tencel_global . The fibers are from cotton and wood scraps and it’s a great sustainable solution to synthetic fibers or ones that cause a lot of damage in order to manufacture. And it feels great! The shoes I’ve had for over 15 years. They speak to me and I take really good care of them. The hat is a gift to myself right after I got hired at Patagonia. 🏻📿🧢

We still have work to do around transparency & fair work. We know this! ️ What Safia said: Thank you for sharing  @cleanclothescampaign This week, Warni and Yayat, two workers from Indonesia who made Uniqlo clothes for years, are in Copenhagen. On Friday Uniqlo opens a new flagstore in the heart of the city and we will be there to tell Uniqlo they need to pay what is owed to Warni and Yayat. They lost their job in 2015, just months after the Japanese brand pulled its orders from the factory. Uniqlo has refused to engage for years, until the Pay Up Uniqlo campaign took to the streets all over the world. The CEO of Uniqlo wants the world to believe that his clothing brand UNIQLO is different from most global fashion brands – that UNIQLO is special, unique, and sustainable. Will you join us and show Uniqlo that you can't call yourself 'sustainable' if you don't take care of the people making your beautiul clothes? Thank you for your support! Write to Uniqlo here : https://www.facebook.com/events/553681478486840/and tell the CEO, Tadashi Yanai, that he can take his responsibility and pay the debt he owes the workers. He is the only one who will decide, so we have to make ourselves heard! Many people have left comments on their review page, but they CLOSED IT DOWN TODAY. Will you support us and make it clear that Uniqlo cannot shut us down like this? Go to their event page, or their facebook page and tell them to pay the compensation that is owed. Thank you for your support!!

I have a ways to go before I am truly living a zero-waste lifestyle but hot damn, I am striving for it. There is passion in my efforts and each day I’m improving. I’m a bit found if my newest trick to using less plastic: mess bags at the deli counter. It’s super easy since my items are weighed before they are slipped into their wrapping so there’s no concern about adjusting weight. All I have to do it ask that they use my bag instead of a plastic one. So far I’ve gotten nothing but smiles and winks as a reaction. Give it a go! It’s fun to stand out with a purpose, even if it’s just at the deli of your favorite grocery store. 🦋🌳
