Happy #WorldCleanupDay, y'all!!!⁣
⁣
I'm taking my own advice today and trusting that small efforts matter. Doing something, no matter if it's only picking up a few bits, is always better than doing nothing. ⁣
⁣
So, a huge salute to everyone who is out there showing the earth some love right where you are ⁣🚮👏👊🙏🌎

Can I just say, I'm pretty thrilled to unveil my first t-shirt design???⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I wanted to start off with a design that captures the heart of who I am and what I'm about. When I was finished with it, I had a clear image of my emerging style as an artist: featuring cute, woodland images with a touch of disturbing reality. You have to look closely to see it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Please READ: I did not hand draw this design. But it is an original design I created using existing images and graphic design tools. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The print will be on a different shirt -- supporting a company I'm excited to partner with -- but I wanted to give a sneak peak of a sample.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I expect these babies to be for sale in about a week!!! And supplies will be limited! So stay tuned!⁣⁣ 👉 @earth_custodian_designs

Beautiful strawberries are cheap at the moment due to the biggest glut in the industry’s history. We all love a bargain and want to support our #aussiefarmers, so what can you do to make sure 🍓 don’t go to waste in your home? 
Our top tricks: 1. Freeze them. 2. Make oven dried strawberry chips. 3. Poach them – with a splash of water and sugar. Voila! Easy, delicious, helping farmers and saving you money! 🍓

Activists are not only the ones at protests and marches and rallies. ⁣
⁣
Activists are also dog walkers and moms, kids and retired folks, software engineers and homeless veterans, yogis and runners and cyclists -- cleaning up bits of garbage as they go about their days. ⁣Noticing. Taking action, no matter how small.
⁣
Bottom line: We ALL can be activists by just walking our neighborhoods, parks and city streets and cleaning up.
⁣
Start where you are.⁣
⁣
And carry a bag and gloves as you go...⁣

One night over 2 years ago, during one of my darkest bouts of depression, a baby squirrel showed up outside our door crying. ⁣
⁣
There was no mama around.⁣
⁣
I had no clue what to do with a baby squirrel, but it was one of the most magical nights of my life. She slept on my chest, bundled in a towel, her tail framing her face and gripping my heart. ⁣
⁣
For that one night, I came fully alive. ⁣
⁣
We took her to a wildlife rehabilitation center the next day and found out several months later that she had not survived.⁣
⁣
I was devastated.⁣
⁣
And I have deeply loved squirrels ever since. ⁣
⁣
Inadvertently, this brief crossing of paths changed me. She changed me.⁣
⁣
And that is one of the reasons why a squirrel will be featured on my first t-shirt design...to be unveiled SOON. ⁣
⁣
These are some of the dear ones I protect. And they, in their own ways, have protected me during seasons of depression. ⁣
⁣
I am grateful.⁣
⁣
I look forward to sharing my design in the coming days. Please stay tuned. 💗💗⁣

This is how things often play out:⁣
⁣
I'm walking to the store. ⁣
It's a long walk down a dirty street.⁣
I start with two bags and end up with an extra large garbage bag I find along the way. ⁣
I was just going to buy bird seed.⁣
⁣
Welcome to the life of a litter-picker, am I right, y'all? ⁣
⁣
Wherever you are, however you celebrate, I hope you're having a lovely Labor day weekend 💚💚💚⁣ #earthcustodian #litterpicker #laborday #cleanup #dontlitter #dosomething #giveadamn #loveinaction #protectwhatyoulove #bethechange #wecandobetter #greenliving #leavenotatrace #leaveitbetter#everylittlebitmatters #plasticpollution #watchyourwaste #lovetheearth #noplanetb #rethink #earthdayeveryday #Bellingham #girlboss #entrepreneurlife #livecolorfully

Saturday.⁣
⁣
It's been a week and I haven't been here as much - so I feel I ought to post something light and lovely...⁣
⁣
But this was my morning.⁣
⁣
Cigarette hell in a nearby wetland, also covered in dog poop. ⁣
⁣
This week was a week of firsts for me in litter pickup: a goat head in a garbage bag, a dead raccoon, a two-dollar bill. ⁣
⁣
So, here I am, keeping it real on an otherwise lovely pre-autumn Saturday morning. ⁣

The amount of waste that happens in the film industry can make your blood boil. Especially when they even go as far as tricking you into thinking you’re recycling by putting out blue bins but then throwing everything in the same dumpster.
😡
That’s why I still want to do my part... we have a recycling box in our AD office that I make sure the swamper doesn’t clean out and instead when it gets full I either take it home to my own recycling bin or find a city recycling bin (Like this one!). I even went as far as going through the garbage in basecamp today to separate out the things that could be recycled because I was so excited to be beside a city regulated recycling bin.
🤗
There’s still so much to be done, and the idea should be to lessen our plastic use all together but in the mean time let’s do our part!

At the end of my cleanup walk today, I was tossing plastics and cans in the recycling bin -- and then I noticed this little guy, clinging to a water bottle. So small, so easy to miss, and to many, perhaps so insignificant. But a life is a life is a life in my book (if I had a book, that is), and this beautiful snail is no exception. I carefully peeled him off the plastic and relocated him to a tree, where he rightfully belongs. Not on our garbage. .

My shop is still not quite ready to launch, but this should be changing soon... In the meantime, did you see that I have a blog up on my website? I have a new post that I hope resonates, whether you find yourself near the beginning or have already ventured deep in this journey of reducing waste. .
.

Today it's all about rewriting our stories of waste. I'd love to hear your story. Check out the link in my bio and head to the blog.

I passed this street art during my cleanup by the creek. Turning my head from the sign, I looked down into the creek and saw what looked like a fire extinguisher bobbing far out of reach. A milk jug. A beer can. A plastic bag and a plastic six-pack ring holder. And I felt discouraged.
.
.
.
I, too, cried and ached over Tahlequa J35 this past month. Her story hit a nerve for many, left us raw and exposed. And this is good, if it provokes us toward action and change that will benefit these vulnerable species.
.
.
.
But what about the others, I wondered? Is an orca's life worth more empathy than a turtle or a squirrel? Why are we moved with compassion for the plight of this grieving mother, but turn a blind eye to the millions of grieving mothers - the cows and pigs, sheep and goats - whose babies we steal and slaughter for our food? Why do we continue to tolerate the violence of our pollution against countless living beings - our single use plastics, lax pollution policies, individual and cultural indifference toward the harm we're inflicting on this fragile planet?
.
.
.
How many wake up calls will it take before we're TRULY listening?

Picking up litter - in this case, dog poop - is multifaceted. There is a need to educate people and to awaken the collective social consciousness. This involves something far more challenging - encouraging personal transformation through calls to action and empowerment. There is also a need for stricter laws, as well as following through with enforcing those laws. We need to hold each other accountable for our messes, our actions. We need to hold corporations and governments accountable. And if all that sounds too much, too unattainable, start small. .
.
.
Like today, I left a message for a community in my neighborhood. And I will keep coming back to reinforce this message until it starts to sink in. .

And I will keep coming back to reinforce this message until it starts to sink in. . . . #accountability  #calltoaction  #earthcustodian  #cleanup  #pickupyourpoop  #dontlitter  #dosomething  #giveadamn  #loveinaction  #protectwhatyoulove  #bethechange  #wecandobetter  #greenliving  #leavenotatrace  #leaveitbetter #everylittlebitmatters  #plasticpollution  #lessplastic  #watchyourwaste  #lovetheearth  #noplanetb  #rethink  #earthdayeveryday  #Bellingham 
Why do I go around picking up other people's dog poop? It's simple: because wildlife cannot clean up after us, including our pet waste. Because I am responsible for helping to protect these places and living beings I love. Because respect demands action. And because I hope, with enough messages sent, to hold others accountable for their own damn messes. This is not a matter of lack of education in my area; it's lack of accountability. And this, quite frankly, is not acceptable behavior. .

I think of this, often. Others call it a carbon footprint; I call it a legacy. The story my footprint will write upon this earth.
.

What is the legacy of waste we're leaving behind for future generations - of humans and nonhumans? Because all lives matter, even those that don't yet exist. And we can absolutely choose the scope of our impact on this planet. Our actions, great and small, matter. .

Where do you go to feel your rootedness when the work of caring for the earth - or your little slice of it - feels Big and Heavy? .
.
.
I return to trees. Take off my shoes. Feel my skin connect with weathered bark, far older than I. I stand on these roots, literally, and let them hold me up for a time. I soak in the steadiness of the tree at my back, breathe deep, and remind myself to simply do the next thing that is in front of me. And then the next. I cannot save the world. But I can remain standing steadfast in it, with acts of love, as I navigate the changes. This is how we endure for the long haul. .

The days have been filled with smoky skies, the sun a piercing pink eye. The weight of the air hovers over my chest at all times, a blanket of sorrow. I ache because I care, deep in my being. This place matters. Each living being - animal, bird, tree, insect, human - who are affected by these wildfires matter. .
.
.
And I matter. I matter. I MATTER.
.
.
.
This is the mantra of our first day of #wereleasetoreceive, and I ponder that as I bend sideways to cradle the burnt sky. What can I do in the big scheme of things that will really matter? How can I leave my kiss upon the earth? What or who determines the weight of my life, my value, while I'm here?
.
.
.
The answer, after many years, lies with me - no one else. I know this now. I matter because I choose to believe and act as though I do. And because of that, I believe my actions and words and the million tiny ways I love matter. Even when I don't feel it or hear it or see it. It all matters. .

Phase II of get my pre-bab(ies) body back. I’ve been slacking off nutrition wise with the traveling all summer. Time to refocus so I can get to Phase III. Today’s mix: 8banded walks, 10 glute raises, 8 Rom DL, 10 deadlift x 4 rounds then conditioning  200m run, 10 PC, 5 pull ups, 500m bike.  I ran back and forth between the garage and playpen, but made it work.  #emilyfrancesfit #momfitness #houston #keepinitreal #heavypowercleans #slowandsteady #everylittlebitmatters #iamthenanny

I've come to think of my bike (aka, Leonard) as my getaway vehicle for litter-picking shenanigans. It makes life more colorful to imagine these things, don't you think? .
.
.
Today I had to get a little creative with hauling the trash...so I strapped the larger bag onto a rack on the back end with a bungee cord and hung the other from the handlebars. .

One of the local spots I protect is a creek that runs through our downtown. Home to mallards year round, a number of wintering water birds, songbirds, squirrels and salmon passing through in their season - as well as a variety of Pacific Northwest trees and plants - I often find garbage strewn in shrubs along the trail and floating far out of reach in the water. I have been known to climb over the rail and jump down to the water to fish out whatever I can get my hands on. .

Where are the places you protect?

Often times, if I'm gut level honest, I fear we're fighting a battle that cannot be won when it comes to reversing the damage we have caused to the earth. I'm not a fatalist, a pessimist or a downer. I have hope, because hope is essential to continue living and thriving. But it's not necessarily a hope that is rooted in a happy ending. I'm overwhelmingly aware of the extent of the crisis. And perhaps my own crisis is this: in the face of this awareness, how then will I live my days? I could toss my hands in the air and turn away, devote myself to a cause with a greater chance of success. But I've determined that if I'm to go down, I will go down fighting -  loving - with everything in me. It's a tenuous balancing act, but one I believe is worth the effort. I will love this place and every living being until the very end. And this love, not the outcome, will have the final word. .

The setting of my clean up work as an earth custodian is populated by many characters. Each one occupies a place in my heart. .
.
.
The towhee, however, claims an extra special space. The first time I heard a towhee call - like the meowing of a cat - my heart was seized with a love so fierce yet tender, irrational and protective. Everywhere I go, when I hear this voice, I hear a cry upturned in question, as if asking me, "What will happen to us?" This voice has become my call to action as well as my mindfulness bell, drawing me home to what and who matter most to me. .

I recently read Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert, and paused at this passage: "Every single pursuit—no matter how wonderful and exciting and glamorous it may initially seem—comes with its own brand of shit sandwich, its own lousy side effects... So the question is not so much 'What are you passionate about?' The question is 'What are you passionate enough about that you can endure the most disagreeable aspects of the work?' Because if you love and want something enough—whatever it is—then you don’t really mind eating the shit sandwich that comes with it."
.
.
.
And for me, it's being an earth custodian. I literally pick up shit - and today, bottles of urine - drug needles, used toilet paper, etc. I come home some days, like today, covered in cobwebs and dirt. But it's all worth it to me, the internal and external fulfillment of the work. .
.
.
So, I ask you today: What do you love enough to endure the shit sandwich that comes with it?

Who are the ones you love?
.
.
.
I love trees. 
Enough to kiss them,
especially when it finally rains 
in the midst of a drought.
I wish I could water them all.
I understand that they, too, 
can suffer.
.
.
.
Being an earth custodian is not just about cleaning up litter. It's about being intimately connected to a place and the nonhuman beings that call that place home. It's about noticing them, not as things, but as their own living entities that wish to thrive. From this place of intimacy, our love finds roots and grows into action. .

I'm working on launching my own small business, focused on the work I love of cleaning up the earth around me (more on this next week). I made a remark to my dear friend @littlegworld yesterday about this dream being so small, nothing that will "change the world." And yet, I desperately hope I can make some difference...
✨
And she replied, in her truth-speaking fashion that I love, "Honey, your business is not small...you need to maybe adjust your perspective a little bit, because it's the world to some rabbit that gets to live another day because it didn't choke to death on a Q-tip that you picked up. Think about the world to the world of the species who have no one else who gives a f*ck about whether or not they get to thrive."
✨
So that's what I thought about on my walk this evening. Birds, rabbits, beetles, squirrels, frogs. These are the ones whose worlds I'm working to change.

Yesterday I posted a video in my stories of me attempting pull ups. I was celebrating my progress, even though they were far from perfect. A friend playfully pointed out to me that they didn't "count" as real pull ups unless they were a full extension - and it hit a nerve. My friend (whom I trust and is a stellar human) was not being unkind, yet I noticed I immediately regretted posting that video. I felt self-conscious and defensive. And I wanted to understand why...
✨
And I think it's this: I've spent too much of my life judging myself for things that don't "count" unless they're perfect. ✨
My veganism doesn't count unless I ditch the honey. ✨
My work for the environment doesn't count if I'm still buying anything in plastic.
✨
My writing doesn't count if few people read it.
✨
My IG account doesn't count if I have few followers.
✨
My marriage doesn't count if we have chronic problems.
✨
My spirituality doesn't count if I'm no longer a Christian.
✨
The list could go on... And I sat stunned as the realization sunk in. My friend's comment stung, not because of my friend - but because of me. So I chose, right then and there, not to give AF. Not to continue the list of judgments. It all counts. Repeat that with me if you need to hear this, too. IT ALL COUNTS. .

I left a little PSA for our neighbors by our dumpster areas this morning. All of this trash came from one unit moving out. .
.

We desperately need to change our relationship with waste. And we need to take on a serious sense of responsibility for the material things we bring into our lives. This mindset - above - is not sustainable. .

Be kind. Do an act of goodness every day, one that no one knows about or will take a photo of or post... Give with all your heart.
It really is the little things that matter.

I'm so grateful to still love to climb things at the age of 37. While cleaning up around and in the creek downtown today, I noticed so MUCH garbage below the railing and along the sides of the creek that were hard to get to. But I was determined. So I scaled the fence multiple times, often with people watching, and fished all kinds of nasty trash (shoes, glue, cigarettes, beer cans, shredded plastic, Styrofoam) out of the water. I wasn't sure if I could climb back up at the end, but my few rock climbing experiences came in handy 🙌🙈 I just love this place.

Often times, it's the little things that can be the most dangerous. Picking up litter regularly helps hone our eyesight to catch things we'd normally have missed. .

An older man saw me stopping to pick up bits of garbage yesterday as I crossed the street. "I've never seen someone pick up trash," he said, as I passed him. .
.
.
Never. Seen. Someone. Pick. Up. Trash.
.

How is this even possible? Not to oversimplify, but I think it comes down to this ➡ As long as we believe it's someone else's problem, responsibility, job, etc., nothing's going to change. Not in a lasting way. .
.

I'm watching a dear friend's fur babies the next two weeks, and decided this would also be a great opportunity to clean another neighborhood. Because, why NOT? .

Back at it, after more than a week of mostly being holed up inside sick. I rescued most of this trash from a steep, slippery slope heading to our downtown creek, getting plenty of curious looks in the process. 💚

Tea bags are one of the last places I'd expect to find plastic, but.... yep. Those bags contain plastic, making them not even compostable. Make the switch to loose leaf (and bag your own in a biodegradable material if you want) - it tastes better AND cuts down on plastic. I call that a Win-Win, don't you? .
.

Also, from here on out, I'll be posting these daily #PlasticFreeJuly tips only in my stories 👆👆. I hope they've been helpful! .

Did you realize those tiny beads in all of our body and facial scrubs are made of plastic? They get washed down the drain, eventually ending up in an ocean, where they find their way into the bellies of all kinds of marine life. This is why countries like Canada and the UK are catching on and starting to ban microbeads. There are lovely natural alternatives to get that same freshly scrubbed feel - even ones to make yourself. It's worth it to protect our ocean ecosystems. .

It's day 4 of #PlasticFreeJuly... And speaking of shopping bulk (yesterday's tip), you might have a local store that carries shampoos, conditioners, body soaps, hand soaps and lotions in bulk. All you need is to reuse an old bottle or dispenser - or use a mason jar and buy a lid and pump dispenser - and you can refill to your heart's content 💚🌎💚 Our local Co-Op even offers bulk (cut-your-own) bar soaps! .

A few days ago, I spent some time researching recycling options, local and otherwise. I made a spreadsheet of what places or mail-in programs accept which items. So, thankfully when I noticed this in our complex's dumpster, I pulled it out knowing I can take it down the street to Best Buy and they will repurpose or recycle it for free. All it takes is a little research. We need a paradigm shift when it comes to how we view our responsibility to the items we buy or bring into our lives. What is their lifespan? Where will they go when we're done with them? .

Day 3 of #PlasticFreeJuly is a game changer. It can seem daunting to switch to buying things in bulk, so why not take small steps? Start with one item. Or several. Oatmeal, flours, sugars, quinoa, pasta, rice, lentils, beans, nuts, dried fruit, cereal, baking soda/powder, spices, cocoa powder, popcorn, agave, maple syrup, olive oil. All of these - and much more - can be found in bulk. They aren't always less expensive, but often times can be. As you can see from my next picture, I reuse all my peanut butter jars for bulk foods. Yes, I can get PB in bulk, but I like these jars (and in this case, the cost is significantly less for me).

The challenge for this month, #PlasticFreeJuly, is not necessarily about being 100% free of plastic. It's more about challenging ourselves to make small changes, bit by bit, away from plastic dependency. We're all at different places on our journeys, but we can all do SOMETHING. So today, if you have plastic packaging hanging around, reuse it. Those produce bags can hold produce again. The zip lock can be washed and reused many times. The bread bags are good for picking up trash or dog poop. Give these single-use items another life. .

If you're short on time, keep things simple and pick up a few pieces en route to where you're going. Simply getting off the bus a 1/2 mile early today was all it took to fill a bag. 👆

Simply getting off the bus a 1/2 mile early today was all it took to fill a bag. 👆 . . . #ecowalk  #consciousclan  #earthcustodian  #cleanup  #dontlitter  #dosomething  #protectwhatyoulove  #bethechange  #wecandobetter  #everylittlebitmatters  #ecoconscious  #plasticpollution  #lessplastic  #watchyourwaste  #lesswaste  #lovetheearth  #noplanetb  #rethink  #earthdayeveryday  #PlanetOrPlastic  #bellingham 
I found a bag with all these contents (and more) spread in a field on my cleanup walk today. I separated the things that were trash and decided to wash the clothes in order to recycle them. I can recycle the lipstick at our co-op. I'm not sure yet what to do with the camera, as it doesn't appear to be in great shape.

For those of you who live near an H&M, are you aware of their new textiles recycling program? They accept all clothes and household textiles at every store location for recycling. .

Sometimes...I confess, I do wish I could turn it off. To be "normal" when I'm out walking. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't choose "normal" over awareness. It just feels heavy to see so much garbage, wherever I am, and hard to walk on by. Hard, also, to not be able to grab it all. .
.
.
This garbage was in a cordoned off part of a mall parking lot, which I walked past on my way to run an errand. I filled two bags and barely made a dent. Then I walked them into the Target next door and asked to speak with a manager. "Whose responsibility is the fenced area under construction?" I asked. The contractor, he said. "And if the contractor doesn't take care of it?" We will, I imagine, he said. .
.
.
I certainly hope so. For goodness sake, will someone please take responsibility?

I've accepted the challenge of trying to figure out a composting system in the situation we're in (no city service available to the condo complex we live in, no backyard or garden, no car). Food waste is a HUGE piece of reducing our waste. I could use some help with creativity...it gets a little frustrating at times with these limitations. 😲

Attention zerowasters! I am in serious need of ideas for what to do with my food scraps (using a bokashi composter), without having access to: 1) a backyard or garden 2) knowing my neighbors with backyards 3) a compost pile in our community garden or 4) a car. Any creative, practical ideas would be so appreciated! Thank you 🙏

Happiness is a chocolate, PB, banana & soy milk smoothie in an old pizza sauce jar - the cutest little mason jar - with a glass straw. 🌞🍌👌

Just because it's"natural" doesn't mean it's not litter - or harmful. So, forgive me while I step up on my dog poop soapbox for a minute...🙈🙉🙊

Reducing our waste isn't about perfection. Sometimes our economical situations don't allow us to buy (or make) everything package free. But we do the best we can with what we have, continually looking for ways to be better consumers. I still have products that come in plastic packaging, and I do what I can to recycle them or - in this case - reuse them. This flour bag zips shut, perfect for sealing in the bits of plastic trash I picked up today. I found the other bag while on my walk, and it definitely came in handy. .

This saltwater bay is the closest thing to an ocean near me. And this park is one of the first reasons my husband and I fell in love with Bellingham, long before moving here. I don't get down here often enough, but when I do, I feel the distant heartbeat of the sea. And I want to care for her. .
.
.
I rode my bike here to work today and spent some time combing the park for trash before settling down to write. I was pleasantly shocked to find little trash, as this is a popular picnic and BBQ spot. And then I spotted the uniformed workers cleaning the grounds. If only all places could have this kind of care. .

We rounded up our plastic grocery bags and popped them into the recycle bin at @smithsfoodanddrug. #babysteps #earthday #savetheworld #recycler #recycle #everylittlebitmatters #instasave
Thoughts on my cleanup walk to the Humane Society...We need to enlarge the perimeters of what we consider our "backyard." Only then can these problems of waste and pollution begin to become our shared problems. (Also, I should know by now to bring a larger bag. I stuffed it 3 times...)
