🥜🌰🍏Plastic free snacking! 🍏🌰🥜 . As easy as it has become to tuck into a cereal bar or a bag of crisps on the go... Sadly all of these things come in plastic and not very much of it is even recyclable ♻ 😩 I always find it really sad looking at the snack isle in the shops and thinking how much plastic waste is produced for our convenience. . The answer is simple. Choose fresh fruit🍏, a handful of nuts🥜, chop up some carrot sticks 🥕, make a big batch of flapjack for the week, or some popcorn 🍿 . Be a bit more prepared. . I don't think convenience is an excuse anymore, we need to try harder to look after this planet! 🌱🌎💞 . Could plastic free snacking be your #tprplasticfreepledge? 💚 . #plasticfreesnack #plasticfree #theplasticredemption #plasticfreelife #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreetips #snacks #cerealbars #flapjack #almonds #nuts #chooseplasticfree #saynotoplastic #reducereuserecycle #reusables #byo #plasticsucks #ecowarrior #environment #lookafterourplanet #ocean #plasticfreejourney #plasticfreechallenge #nature #travel #life #motivation #onthego

Hello everyone 🙋🏻‍♀️I was looking for your thoughts and advice. I used to buy a lot of @lush products in the black plastic pots however over the past year I have stopped because they are plastic. After speaking to someone in the store, I found out that they haven’t made a new on me since 2012 due to their return and recycle scheme ♻️ Their point was that if they stopped making products for the pots that the plastic would become redundant and I kinda get it. What are your thoughts on these products? I’m so indecided but used to love Ocean Salt 🧂 🌊 #plasticfree #plasticfreebeauty #plastic #beauty #plasticfreeliving #newyear #saynotoplastic #makeup #plasticfreeliving #love #instagood #happy #picoftheday #nature #travel #life #beach #motivation #lifestyle #inspiration #sea #planet #recycle #natural #reuse #environment #ocean #sustainability #sustainableliving #instabeauty #lush

One of the things we were asked about recently is where to find plastic free pet food. 🐕🐈🐇 @hales0691 . It's always important to consider all ethical aspects of your purchases and when it comes to dog food... I think @harringtonspetfood are doing a great job...👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 (I've done a good amount of nerding up over the last couple of years!🤓) . As a company, they are actively trying to find ways to reduce their carbon footprint 👣 and environmental impact 🌱. You can buy some of their products packed in compostable bags which is awesome... And it's full of natural ingredients - Indie loves it.💞🐕😁 . Do you have a dog/cat? Could you make this your #tprplasticfreepledge? . #tprplasticfreepledge #bags4ben #plasticfreelife #plasticfree #mindfulness #nature #environment #eco #ecowarrior #environmentalism #waterways #ocean # oceanlover #turningthetideonplastic #zerowaste #litterpicking #uselesswateless #saytonosingleuse #love #instagood #happy #recycle #reducereuserecycle #love #dogs #cats #dogsofinstagram #doglover #animallovers #indiebabes #rescuedog #rommiedog

Today we decided to try @morrisonsbecause we had heard they were stocking lots of food without plastic packaging. There was certainly a few items without packaging but I was surprised by how much plastic there was (especially for the bakery goods) 🥖 Supermarkets are definitely taking steps in the right direction but just not quick enough. Why do vegetables need to be shrink wrapped ? 🤷🏻‍♀️However, I actually love the challenge of going shopping 🛍 and avoiding plastic; it makes it much more exciting 💚P.S. the @lindamccartneyfoodssausages were on offer 🌭🌭🌭🌭🌭🌭 #plasticfree #teamwork #plastic #instatravel #plasticfreeliving #newyear #saynotoplastic #litterpicking #newyearnewme #newyearsresolution #plasticfreeliving #love #instagood #happy #picoftheday #nature #travel #life #beach #motivation #lifestyle #inspiration #sea #planet #recycle #natural #reuse #environment #ocean

Following on from Amie's post about plastic free cards 🎴 yesterday... What about gift wrap... 🎁Have you ever given any thought to how sustainable it is?🎁 . Lots of wrapping paper has glitter✨ on it, or even plastic in it. Sellotape is made from plastic too.😕 . How about reusing tissue paper, newspaper, flower catalogues etc. 🌸💮🏵️And tiying up with string/hessian. I often use the wrappers from our @whogivesacraptp toilet rolls!! . Does anyone else have any creative ideas for gift wrapping🎁🤷🏼‍♀️ . #tprplasticfreepledge #plasticfree #plasticfreechallenge #theplasticredemption #plasticfreeshop #plasticsucks #gifts #presents #sustainability #sustainable #reuse #environment #ocean #bags4ben #lookafterourplanet #environment #eco #ecofriendly #upcycle #giving #love #lovenature #planet

Seven billion greeting cards are purchased in the U.S. each year, and annual retail sales are estimated at over $7.5 billion 🇺🇸 💵 Nine out of ten households buy an average of 30 individual cards per year. In the UK, public spent £1.7 billion on greeting cards. 💷 If each one of these cards came in the little plastic sleeve just think how much plastic that is! 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 Well done to @frompaperchase for taking a step in the right direction 🙌🏻and ditching the pointless plastic packaging 🗑 Let’s hope @clintonsretail , @cardfactoryplc and @hallmarkukandireland follow suit 🎂 Could this be your plastic free pledge to stop buying cards in plastic?

Just because you try one plastic free alternative and don't get on with it, doesn't mean that is the only option. Different things work for different people, just like with everything in life, so don't give up, just try something different. 😊 . One of the responses to our story on Monday was if there was a different type of plastic free hair conditioner rather than the bars. 🤷🏼‍♀️ . A lot of people love the conditioner bars from Lush, which is great, 💚 but I just couldn't get on with them. So, if you're looking for an alternative here are my suggestions! . I'm currently using @wildsageandco liquid conditioner which is ace. 🚿 I got this from @plasticfreedom_ To be honest, it seems expensive and I put of buying this for long time, but you only need a small amount so it lasts for ages. It smells gorgeous and works great. 🌼🌺🏵️ . My other favourite is this conditioner bar from @naturalwisdomspa... Yes I know... This is still a bar 🙈 but it's nothing like the lush ones. It coats you hair as you rub it on and leaves it really soft. Plus, it's full of natural ingredients and smells incredible. 🤗 This also doubles up as a shaving cream. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 . Hope that helps @laurabarker1990 thanks for getting involved 😘 . Anyone else have any suggestions for plastic free conditioner?? Anyone make their own? 👇🏼 👇🏼 👇🏼 . #tprplasticfreepledge #plasticfree #hair #hairconditioner #beauty #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreebeauty #saynotoplastic #reducereuserecycle #natural #crueltyfree #plasticfreetips #noplanetb #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #newyearsresolution #nature #eco #environment #ocean #lookafterourplanet

Good evening everyone 🙋🏻‍♀️💚 Just a quick reminder of what we are doing and why 🌍 We are going to climb Ben Nevis 🏔 to raise awareness of the damaging effects of plastic 🌊 We are training at the moment as it’s not something that will be particularly easy for us 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🏔 We would really appreciate it if you could support our journey by swapping to a plastic free alternative of one item or picking up litter to save it from ending up in the ocean 🌊 If you do these please tag us in the pictures using #tprplasticfreepledge and #bags4ben 💚 On another note- it was lovely to see everyone at the gym with reusable bottles 💁🏻‍♀️💚🌍🌊

I put the feelers out on our story this morning to see if there was anything in particular that people wanted us to talk about. . First question that came back was asking if you can get a refillable toothpaste tab. 🤷🏼‍♀️@Lush sell toothy tabs which are readily available, but they unfortunately come in a plastic pot. Here's my solution... Either @Denttabs or tooth tabs from @savesomegreen. 😁 . They are little minty tablets that look like mints. You pop one in your mouth, chew it a little with your teeth then brush with the paste. It tastes just like regular toothpaste and it's really easy to travel with. You can buy them with or without flouride, depending on your preference. . There's a good few stockists online now but for a start you can get them from @anythingbutplastic or @savesomegreen . Hope that helps @jamjargrambags ! Thanks for getting in touch... I'm working on your other questions! . Has anyone else used these? Do you like them? Anyone know any other alternatives? . #tprplasticfreepledge #bags4ben #plasticfreelife #plasticfree #mindfulness #nature #environment #eco #ecowarrior #environmentalism #waterways #ocean # oceanlover #turningthetideonplastic #zerowaste #litterpicking #uselesswateless #saytonosingleuse #love #instagood #happy #recycle #reducereuserecycle #love #plasticfreetoothpaste #beauty #toothpaste #dental #crueltyfree #vegan

Unfortunately we live in a throw away world 🌍 but the world can’t sustain this❌ Each year we dispose of billions of batteries, all containing toxic or corrosive materials😷In addition to this they all come packaged in an abundance of plastic packaging. It is a lose, lose situation 🤷🏻‍♀️ Rechargable batteries 🔋 can be used 1000 times so could help this problem.

If you ever need a reminder of how indestructible plastic really is, take a walk down the side of one of our waterways. 💦 🚶 . This time of year when we get lots of rain fall ☔ is usually when I notice it the most. As the river rises it leaves behind more and more plastic bottles, toys, shoes, aerosol cans, plant pots, pens, lighters, crisp packets, sweet wrappers etc. on the riverbank. 🖋 🍬 . It's a real hard hitting reminder that this stuff will not 'go away' when we throw it away. 😩 It will definitely outlive us on this earth and there is SO MUCH of it. That is why we need to change our habits. . We're asking for your support for our climb up Ben Nevis 🗻 in July if you will sponsor us with your own #tprplasticfreepledge - to pledge a change you will make to avoid plastic in your life , or to pick up a bag of litter for us #bags4ben . Together we can change the state of our waterways - it doesn't have to be like this. 🌊 🌍 💕 . #tprplasticfreepledge #bags4ben #plasticfreelife #plasticfree #mindfulness #nature #environment #eco #ecowarrior #environmentalism #waterways #ocean # oceanlover #turningthetideonplastic #zerowaste #litterpicking #uselesswateless #saytonosingleuse #love #instagood #happy #recycle #reducereuserecycle #love #river #rivertrent #theriversidecleanup

the_plastic_redemption's Media: My mum and I were in Nottingham the other day and accidentally ended up looking through second hand

My mum and I were in Nottingham the other day and accidentally ended up looking through second hand/ vintage shops in Hockley. 👖 👗 I couldn't believe how busy these shops were - how great is this that so many people are on board with recycling clothes! ♻ 👍🏻 . Some of these places rework pieces of clothing into something different too like this awesome cord skirt I got from @wearecow which I guess probably used to be some cord trousers or something.💚💚💚 . 🌍💕♻ Love it! ♻ 💕🌍 . Isn't this a much more fulfilling and sustainable way to shop for clothes than searching through the same old generic high street stores. . So... 'How is this related to plastic?' 🤷🏼‍♀️I hear you say...!! Well... Not only are a lot of clothes made from fibres which contain plastic, a whole load of waste is produced from the fashion industry and even washing clothes releases microplastics into the water. 👕👖🧣🧥👗 . If you are in the area, definitely check out @wearecow @whiteroseshops5 @braderievintage . Could you make it your #tprplasticfreepledge to change the way you shop for clothes? Consider buying second hand or at least give these kind of shops a look? 👗🌍❤️ . Can anyone else recommend some good second hand clothes shop? 🤷🏼‍♀️ . #secondhand #buysecondhand #clothing #saynotofastfashion #reducereuserecycle #plastic #saynotoplastic #vintage #charityshop #upcycle #recycle #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #plasticfreetips #zerowaste #uselesswasteless #environment #eco #nature #ocean #marinelife #water #tprplasticfreepledge

🖋 So I just sat down to write this post this evening and saw @makelitterpickingcool 's post pop up on our feed... I hear you Rachel!!! 😩😩😩😩 . Plastic charity shop bags 🛍 and junk mail though my door ✉ is the bane of my liiiifeeee erugh. 🤪 . I get that charity shops need donations, but posting plastic bags through doors is most definitely not the solution. I bet the vast majority of these go straight in the bin. 🚮 What an absolute waste🗑 . Come on @breastcancerresearchaid, you do such great work but this is just completely bonkers. Any chance you could stop posting bags for the sake of the environment? 🌱Or at least respect people's wishes when they request no bags. . Anyone here have any tips how to stop people posting this stuff???
