Bonjour IG 👋🏻 Difficile de savoir par quel post commencer. Vous avez peut-être déjà vu ce t-shirt, il est né d’une collaboration entre @ceciliaphotographie et @surfridereurope dont je suis adhérente depuis plusieurs années maintenant. Je vais régulièrement dans les Landes et quand je vois le nombre de déchets sur les plages hors saison, je prends peur. Pas seulement dans les Landes d’ailleurs, ni seulement sur les plages. Dans la nature en général. Je me demande parfois comment c’est possible ! En tous cas, cela a vraiment éveillé ma conscience sur la nécessité de réduire mes déchets. J’y vais pas à pas et plus j’avance dans ma démarche, plus j’ai l’impression d’ouvrir des poupées russes. Ça vous fait ça à vous aussi ? 😘
🍵🌴Why make the big switch from Coffee to Matcha? Because Get-Matcha is the most ideal alternative to coffee as it contains the caffeine theophylline that gives a slower release of energy and eliminates the hypertension, nervousness & jitters induced by conventional coffees!🌴🍵🌴want to try one today? Then Find out where you can buy a Matcha latte in CPT/ JHB or STELLIES in the comment section below. 🍃✌️️Want to make your own Matcha latte at home? Then visit our site (link in bio) and scroll down for our heavenly Matcha & Coconut Latte recipe. 🌴 #happy#morningroutine#greenliving
SWIPE UP ⏩Did you know that adding leafy greens to your everyday’s food supports four out of the five life forces (nutrition, oxygenation, alkalization, and detoxification)?
There is a social stigma when it comes to greens. I often hear people call greens “hippie food” or “rabbit food” — and I’m sure you have your own names to add to this list. It gets even more interesting because innately we know consuming greens is one of the best things we can do for our wellbeing, yet if possible we would skip them — and, let’s face it, most people do.
Most of us know the benefits of eating greens: rich in magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, sodium, fibre, B Vitamins... but did you know dark leafy greens give your body folate! - Folate deficiency is common and leads to a host of health problems you don’t want, including digestive disorders, cardiovascular disease, and most famously perhaps, birth defects. Folate is also crucial in epigenetics (external or environmental factors that switch genes on and off without changing the DNA sequence) through a process known as methylation where folate acts as a methyl donor promoting cellular differentiation.
“We’re being manipulated by food engineers who have figured out how to tap into our brains. But if we can kick our addiction to junk food, we become better able to distinguish the fake stuff from the real, and that chemical aroma will lose its power to hook us.” (SuperLife, pg. 22)
With winter months approaching, we want to give you a great tip how to get your greens into your daily life despite even when farmers market has none! A great example is to blend kale + spinach + avocado >>> pour the mixture into the cupcakes form and freeze! This will give you exact portions of the greens which you can just simply add into your smoothie anytime you desire! Another great way to add green to your smoothie is to use superfoods like spirulina, chlorella or Moringa - they are all full of amazing benefits, more in detail about these powerhouses in upcoming posts! Stay tuned and happy Wednesday! 😘💚
Eat your greens 😉
Heyyyyyo! We’ll be at Publika Shopping Mall next week Monday to Wednesday for their Green Market, The 11th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival 2018 @kleff_my 💃🏼 collaborating with @thehivebulkfoods 🤩 They will also be there (Thursday onwards)
Our booth is open from 12pm - 10pm, so head down over during lunch hours or after work 🤗 See you there!
Yay, the sun finally came out again after 4 days of torrential rain and heavy winds. ☔☁ We're really glad about this because for the first time since living #offthegrid in our tiny house (almost 10 months) we ran out of hot water and had to use lukewarm water. Our batteries were also getting a bit low because there was only very little sun to charge them up again. But on the bright side, the rain filled our water tank right up. 👍💧 The last few days were quite insightful, we're not connected to the grid so having a large battery bank for overcast days is a necessity and, of course, our @home_biogas as a backup. It's pretty awesome to see though that all it takes to charge our batteries and to heat up our water is just a couple of hours of sunshine. Go #solarpower 🌞
Vegan hot choco ☕️🤤
Voor 1 portie:
200 ml plantaardige melk
1 el cacaopoeder
Zoeten naar smaak
Ik gebruikte de Oat Drink Whole van Oatly. Deze smaakt lekker romig en kan ook gebruikt worden om melk op te schuimen voor cappuccino’s. Ik vind het zelf echt net zo lekker als chocomel 💛
Nach einem Herbstspaziergang gemütlich aufs Sofa kuscheln. 🍂 Ein schönes warmes Getränk sollte dabei nicht fehlen. Mit unserem handgefertigtem Kaffeebecher geht das nun noch viel einfacher und schöner! Jeder Becher wird in einer kleinen Werkstatt in Kopenhagen von Hand auf einem Drehteller geformt, bemalt und anschließend im Ofen gebrannt. Das Design haben wir gemeinsam mit der Künstlerin Lene Glud Jensen speziell für unseren Online-Shop entwickelt – ihr findet die Becher daher tatsächlich nur hier bei uns 😊
Now that it’s officially autumn, my polo neck tops are rolling out! Do you wear polo necks?⠀

Entrepreneurs rise for climate 🌎
Entrepreneurs are showing us today that a sustainable business model isn’t an unprofitable one 🌿
For @marcgusilsprax, @chacunsoncafe CEO, it’s a natural business orientation for today’s entrepreneurs: "I like to live in the present and the present is about life on this planet, about climate change, about demographic growth, and it is no longer a question of choice, but of survival. I am an entrepreneur who is simply trying to give purpose to what he’s doing, wether it for personal of professional matters."
Climate change leads entrepreneurs to bring exit opportunities… like an exit to the coffee pods system!
🌎 Alternatives exist! Let’s ask your cites to support good ideas, to become an example and to say NO the #SingleUse :
1⃣ Share our campaign
2⃣ Tag your city / mayor
3⃣ Spread the word!
Les entrepreneurs mobilisés pour le climat 🌎
Le changement climatique amène les entrepreneurs à créer des issues positives à ce qui ne fonctionne plus… comme le système des capsules de café par exemple ! Et aussi à montrer que de meilleurs modèles sont rentables 🌏🌿
Pour @marcgusilsprax, CEO de @chacunsoncafe, c’est une orientation naturelle qu’un entrepreneur doit prendre : « j’aime vivre mon temps et mon temps est celui de la question de la vie sur la planète, celui du dérèglement climatique, de l’accroissement de la population mondiale et ce n’est plus une question de choix, mais de survie. Je suis un entrepreneur qui essaie simplement d’épouser son époque. »
🌎 Les solutions existent : demandons à nos Villes de soutenir les bonnes idées, de montrer l’exemple et de dire NON au #SingleUse !

2⃣ Tagguez votre ville / votre maire

Monday saw #GlobalHandwashingDay , a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. And while we are (obviously) all for it, it doesn’t stop us cringing every time the only option we have to wash our hands with is Carex.
That little blue bottle fills us with dread because it’s full of ingredients like Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Parfum Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Hexyl Cinnamal and Butylphenyl Methylpropional that the EWG Skin Deep Cosmetics Database all rate as a moderate or high hazard. Ariane occasionally suffers from eczema on her hands and can always trace it back to using some dodgy soap or other cleaning product. That’s why at home we only use the The @biodegradable.biz Sanitising Handwash. We also get extra zero waste points for buying it in bulk!
Are you new to zero waste shopping?! 🌎
If you are, it’s time to get your head around it, as zero waste shops are set to take the U.K by storm in 2019! 🙌💚 Please spread the word and share our clip on how to shop plastic free to the world!
For those that already shop this way, feel free to add any suggestions/advice for others to take on board!
With plastic pollution finally becoming a top news story and on the government’s agenda, we are really on the cusp of enormous positive environmental changes and we could not be more thrilled! 🤗🐳 .

Available in green, red or blue, this awesome reusable coffee cup is made from rice husk! Avoid those disposable cups and also enjoy discounts at big coffee chains for ‘bringing your own’! 💚🌱☕️ Available at www.veegstreet.com
C O C O Bowl stack! How great is the term “repurposing”? It means to upcycle or find a new purpose for a wasted item. That is what our coconut bowls are, repurposed shells that have been saved, hollowed and shaped into bowls for you. How do you repurpose or upcycle? We’d love to know 📸: @pureveganfood 🌱 #avoidsingleuse
I am a bit on a mission to reduce waste, in particular plastic, inspired by Amanda of @small_sustainable_steps.
Living in the midst of nature I am aware how important environment is. And although I am very consious of what and where I buy, it is amazing how much plastics still enters and leaves this house.
There is so much more I can do and without being fanatic I really want to contribute my share to this important issue.
So no plastic in my kitchen. I make my own kitchensoap of a Marseille soap bar. I use wooden dish and pan brushes. They are so much nicer than the plastic ones.
I crochet dishcloths of a sorts and colours of cotton. They work perfectly.
Balmstick is of the ecofriendly Okko @okkoskincare , they sell their lovely crèmes in paper.
Next challenge is the bathroom.
There is still a long way to go !!
Are you cutting down on your personal use of plastic ? I ‘d love to hear...
Another shot of these cuties devouring popcorn in their beeswax wrap cones ❤️ they are the future - love being able to show my little one a kinder way of storing her food. Helps that our beeswax wraps also look amazing!
Making home made flaxseed gel. Used the recipe on naturally curly. com. This is only the 2nd time I've made it... The first time I made it waaaay too thick and couldn't strain it through the tights. This time I think I've made it too thin. We'll see. It's now cooling, I'm going to try it out tomorrow.
