Nothing in Nature lives for itself. Rivers don’t drink their own water. Trees don’t eat their own fruit. The Sun doesn’t shine for itself. A flower’s fragrance is not for itself - Living for each other is the rule of Nature 🌸

Try as we might to reach zero waste, it's impossible. It's a catchy term that isn't very helpful. Focusing on “zero waste” means prioritizing personal waste but from a sustainability perspective, there are more important things to worry about. Living plastic-free isn't my top priority, living a more sustainable and compassionate life is 🕊
There are lots of wasteful things we don't need and could go without. We could make things from scratch, boycott plastic-wrapped goods, and only buy locally grown produce. But all those things rely heavily on privilege; the privilege of time, convenience, access, and money. There's only so much we can do before one or all of those things get stretched beyond our means 😵
I don't believe it's down to us as individuals to shoulder the responsibility for how things are packaged and sold to us. We must take responsibility for the habits we can change but we shouldn't feel guilty about the things we can't. Write to your local representatives, supermarkets, and online retailers; put pressure on them and demand change. It's more effective than boycotting plastic-wrapped cucumbers 😉
I've made so many changes and compromises when it comes to the things I buy and go without in order to reduce waste; my time and energy isn't infinite. Swipe right and you'll see some of the wasteful things I still buy, and will continue to buy, until I find an affordable, convenient, and realistic solution. (Just a polite note: I'm not looking for recommendations, suggestions, or alternatives to the items I've photographed; I buy them for a reason ✌)

I know this. We all do. I guess I didn’t really take it seriously. But that’s okay because I’m starting now ✨
I’m on a mission to educate myself on the impact of my decisions and lifestyle
Change yourself and change the world

Sneaky plastics!!! We need to re-evaluate EVERYTHING!! I just realized my dishwasher tabs are made from plastic🤦🏼♀️ that apparently dissolve into micro plastic that gets dumped into our waterways😭 how has it taken me so long to notice a piece of plastic I use everyday!!?? We are so conditioned to overlook the norm, and are destroying our environment💚💙🌎 what do you use in your dishwasher?? Powder? Liquid? Nothing?? #lookingforalternatives#bethechange#progressnotperfection#wastewise#ecoconcious

@cocacola has teamed up with @publicisitaly in their latest campaign in an effort to bring light to recycling. #ihavethisthingwithmarketing
In a series of billboards the brand has utilised their ribbon design and turned it into a form of wayfaring to bring attention to coca-cola branded bins that are stationed within the proximity of the designs.
“The move is part of Coca-Cola’s pledge to make all of its packaging fully recyclable by 2025, as part of the Ellen McArthur Foundation initiative that also involves brands removing unnecessary packaging, switching from single-use plastics, and increasing the amount of plastic that is re-used or recycled.
Of the 150 brands who have officially pledged their commitment to the goal, many are still reluctant to disclose details about their plastic waste levels – however Coca-Cola has owned up to its role in this, revealing that it produces 3 million tonnes of plastic packaging a year. Other high ranking multinationals include Nestlé and Danone, which produce 1.7 million tonnes and 750,000 tonnes of plastic per year respectively.” #repost@thedesignersleague

Green Gifting is simple and thoughtful.
Backyard Bees is as waste free as we can bee, but special occasions call for something extra...and we're happy to do that little extra for you!
These teacher thank-yous may all look the same, but we identify the contents on the bottom of each bag. Some customers have let their children decorate the bag and add their own personal touches (Wish I had a picture!) From day to day, you may notice different packaging on Backyard Bees gifts...we just try to use what we have on hand and although it may make the Queen sound "old", I do have a ribbon and bakery twine drawer, just like my mom and grandma did! Do you?
