THE RESULTS ARE OUT
The @mcs_uk British Beach Clean results are out! 🌎🌿
A massive 15,000 volunteers (double from last year) came along across the U.K. over the weekend in September to clean up 👏🏻
.It’s so interesting to see what the main polluters are and we should use this to target our bad habits! 🌿
I am shocked that the amount of litter in Scotland has gone up by 30% but luckily so has the number of volunteers by 80% Come of Scotland we must do better! 🏴
Check out all their stats from their recent post! 🌿

WHO CAN RESIST
Who can resist saving the planet with a reusable coffee cup for just £1 🌿☕️Thank you @starbucks for using a whole display to promote sustainability! 👏🏻🏴
THIS IS WHY
This is why people cannot be trusted with disposable items. What a waste of a business ‘trying’ to do better offering a ‘green’ cup. First of all these ‘compostable’ cups are not doing what they are cracked up to do. They are not compostable in a bin or in your home systems, they need to be industrially composted which is just not available right now, especially at the scale needed. It is also definitely not going to breakdown on a pavement. Yes they are avoiding the old plastic-lined paper ones, but it’s honestly just creating a new problem. This is why we have REUSABLE cups. Take it, get a discount, enjoy your drink, wash it out, then REPEAT. No waste. No mess. No linear production. This is circular. This is better. And then there’s just the person that chucked this at the side of the road. Come on. Rage. This week needs to end and it’s Tuesday.

MY FIRST CREATION
My first creation from my @eastcoastorganics.co.uk #vegbox 🥬🥕🥔 I made leek and potato soup (and carrots and celeriac) 🙌🏻🌿Delish if I do say so myself! Also got enough to feed an army so friends are welcome round for a bowl 🥰
CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT I END UP MAKING
AHHHHHHH look what has arrived from @eastcoastorganics.co.uk 🙌🏻 my fruit and veg box 🏴
What was included in this £12 box? - 5 bananas 🍌 11 🍊 tangerines 7 🍎 apples 4 🍐pears 3 🥕 carrots 6 🥔 potatoes 1 🥬 bag of salad, 1 turnip, 1 butternut squash, 3 onions and 1 leek 🙌🏻This will last me ages! Saved so much plastic! Is getting what’s local and seasonal to the farms around Edinburgh, and is helping a local business! And they’re delivered in an electric car! 👏🏻Can’t wait to see what I end up making
DID YOU KNOW?
Always try to refuse single use plastics ✋🏼, but sometimes they’re just impossible to avoid 😩
So when you have no other option here’s a guide for consuming in the “most sustainable” and recyclable way: .
EVERY MORNING THIS IS GOLD
This might not look like luxury. But every morning this is gold. For over a year I was waking up and having oats and water for breakfast because I refused to buy milk in plastic bottles, or use alternatives which were worse for the environment. But now - milk in glass bottles. This is just a simple post to talk about how personally I sacrifice the things I like because of the environment, but I am always hopeful that an alternative comes around (which it did). This is probably the most #firstworldproblems post ever; cries over lack of milk in the morning. I’m just showing that some of my zerowaste journey has been a total fail and ended up with me cutting out stuff completely. However I am hopeful with so many bulk food stores and more people waking up to the environmental crisis we’re in that more and more solutions keep popping up to avoid plastic and live more for the environment! Yawn - I’m going back to bed - I’m SO not a morning person.

“A lot about being environmental is actually just about taking the time out and thinking, being a bit more prepared and actually once you’ve got the resources and once you’ve figured it out it is super easy.”
