Who is ready to go carbon neutral today? πŸ₯°πŸŒ
🌿
I'm very excited to be collaborating with @simplizero to help you offset your carbon emissions and even go above and beyond to become climate positive. If you haven't seen my last post about the benefits of carbon offsetting then feel free to go back and read that. 
🌿
@simplizero uses your country's specific emissions data to
calculate your average carbon footprint. You then select a plan to offset your emissions and you can even offset more emissions than you produce. The plans start from as little as $5 a month and go up to $15 a month. 
🌿
I love how @simplizero has a variety of projects that you can choose from. There are "Renewable" projects that focus on creating more renewable energy, "Social" projects that focus on  improving the lives of the local communities and "Reforestation" projects that plant more trees in different parts of the world. 
🌿
@simplizero also cares a lot about their transparency and makes their carbon accounting documents and issuance list publicly available so that you can see exactly where your money is going. 
🌿
@simplizero has very kindly offered to pay for my first year of carbon offsetting but I will definitely be renewing my membership with them for years and years to come. Use the code "ValerieSZ" for 50% off any of the plans. I will be receiving  50% commission from any of you who sign up with my code so I want to say thank you in advance! πŸ₯°
🌿
If you want to create local jobs, save fossil fuel imports and avoid the social cost of carbon emissions then take action today!

By 2050 at the latest, we must stop emitting more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than Earth can naturally absorb through its ecosystem. 🌏
🌿
As important as it is to continue reducing our carbon emissions, I believe that there is now a need to take further action and go climate positive. That means that we sequester/reduce more carbon emissions than we produce and carbon offsetting can help us achieve this. 
🌿
Apart from the obvious benefit of preventing more carbon emissions being released into the atmosphere, I also love that putting your money in carbon offset projects also creates job opportunities and improved environmental conditions in communities where these projects take place. Carbon offset projects also help reduce environmental based illnesses therefore reducing strain on local healthcare facilities. Social justice and environmentalism go hand in hand so seeing a positive impact on these communities make me really happy!
🌿
I am now offsetting my carbon emissions and going climate positive with @simplizero and I will share a little bit more about how to do this in my next post! πŸ˜ƒ
🌿
Are you currently investing in any carbon offset projects?

Who else loves picnics! πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈI know I do but I don't go on picnics as much as I would like to. 
🌿
We had a three day weekend here in WA and to end the weekend Patrick and I decided to go on a picnic on Monday afternoon. We packed some noodles, apples, pistachio and almonds, yogurt with fresh passionfruit and a kaya and butter toastie. It was only a 3 minute walk to our local park!
🌿
We were able to pack our food waste free with some help from @sustomi. They have very kindly gifted me some beeswax wrap, a silicone food pouch, a washable lunch bag and a cloth wrap. I love their new Summertime Disco print by @Georgiewilsonartist! Checkout their page for more plastic free options.

Do you like going on picnics too? When was the last time you went on a picnic?

If you're anything like me and keep forgetting your reusables I've got a trick for you. This is a system I've implemented just a few weeks ago and it has been working great for me. 
🌿
I now keep a basket of reusables in my car so I will have them with me whenever I'm out. In my basket of reusable I have: 
🌸Two containers for takeaway food or leftovers
🌸~6 reusable nylon produce bags
🌸4 cotton bags for dried goods
🌸x2 large shopping bags
🌸x2 large glass jars for takeaway bubble tea 
🌸x2 small glass jars
🌸x2 cutlery set 
🌸x2 metal straws
🌸x2 rags to use as handkerchiefs 
Whenever I've washed and dried these items after using them, I will place them next to the front door and pop them in the basket the next time I get in my car. 
🌿
Do you have a system to help you remember your reusables?

✊✊(shakes fist) to those people who get up on their high horse and say things like "How can you call yourself an environmentalist if you still eat meat/fly/buy fast fashion?" What's even more irritating is that most of the people who say things like these aren't even trying to reduce their environmental impact at all. 
🌿
To make the issue of climate change more accessible to the masses, we need to fixate less on perfectionism and more on collaborative effort. We are all inhabitants of this planet and we all have a role to play in reducing the carbon emissions and degradation of the planet. 
🌿
So next time a gatekeeper tells you that you're not doing enough to save the planet, tell them that you realise you're not doing everything perfectly but you're trying your best and striving to do better each day. There is no point in getting into an argument with them. I believe the best way to inspire people is to lead by example. 
🌿
And as important as individual action is, we must remember that 100 companies are responsible for 70% of greenhouse gas emissions so we need to hold these companies accountable and keep demanding for systemic change.

I have been on the hunt for a sturdy pair of everyday runners that would last me years and I think I have found the near perfect pair! These wool runners from @allbirds are so comfortable and lightweight and as a teacher, they feel great as I have to be on my feet pretty much the whole day. And despite them being wool runners they are waterproof too as they have a plant-based water repellent. The only thing negative I have to say is that they can get a bit warm in the warmer months as it is made from wool but it does keep my feet nice and warm during the cooler months. And I looooovee that the shoes are machine washable! 
🌿
As much as I love the shoes themselves, what I love more about @allbirds is their sustainability practices. They have probably the most extensive explanation of what they do to incorporate sustainability into their business model. I spent a good 30 minutes on their website just reading about their sustainable practices. Here are some of them: 
πŸ‘ŸB-corp certified company
πŸ‘ŸCarbon neutral business however working towards becoming carbon negative! 🀩
πŸ‘ŸSustainably and ethically sourced materials
πŸ‘ŸHold a strict criteria when choosing carbon offset projects
πŸ‘ŸBy 2025, 100% of Allbirds’ wool coming from regenerative sources
πŸ‘ŸReleased a footprint calculator tool to help other businesses determine their carbon footprint
🌿
What do you look for in a pair of runners/sneakers?

Are you guilty of feeling like you're not doing enough for the planet? Well, this reminder is for you as much as it is for me. I have to constantly remind myself to stop comparing myself to other people on Instagram who bake their own bread, live a 100% vegan lifestyle, know more about sustainability than me etc... 
🌿
I think it's important to have these people to look up to and to motivate us to do better but we should not let this comparison overwhelm us and make us forget about the things we ARE doing to live a little more sustainably. 
🌿
A single perfect way to live sustainably does not exist so do what works for you. Let us recognise our circumstances and our privilege and take action that makes us feel good. The last thing we need in the green movement is people who despise living greener because it's too inconvenient or restrictive to them.

If you use a safety razor, you shouldn't be putting the blades directly in the recycling bin. That is because they are too small to get picked up by the magnet at the material recovery facility (MRF) and therefore wouldn't get recycled. 
🌿
What I do is place all the used blades in a small metal container like a mint container and once that container is full I can pop the whole thing in the recycling bin. This is a tip I learnt at one of the low waste living courses I attended. πŸ˜€
🌿
Love the safety razors we use! I bought them from @kappi.life and Patrick and I have been using ours for over a year now πŸ˜€

We've been able to avoid so much food waste from going to landfill since installing a worm farm. It's actually a lot easier to maintain than many people think! 
Here are some simple ways you can keep your worm farm thriving: 
πŸͺ±Limit feed to certain sections of the bin so that there are cooler areas where the worms can go to escape hot decomposing food
πŸͺ±Add ice on hot summer days to bring down the temperature of the worm farm
πŸͺ±Lightly aerate your bedding to make sure the environment doesn't become too damp and anaerobic 
πŸͺ±Worms love smoothies! It increases the surface area of the organic matter and helps the worms break it down a lot faster
πŸͺ±Make sure that you are not overfeeding your worms. Worms can only eat up to 50% of their body weight per day
🌿
Do you also have a worm farm? What are some of your vermicomposting tips?

Many of you might already know that I'm Buddhist so I thought it'll be interesting to shed some light about how my Buddhist values also align with my values as an environmentalist. Thanks again @ecochicpodcast for sparking this conversation. 
🌿
πŸ™ Kindness and compassion 
As Buddhists, we are taught to always show kindness and compassion towards all living beings and this is perfectly in line with what environmentalism advocates for. We care about social justice, fairly paid workers and cruelty against animals.
🌿 
πŸ™Cause and effect 
Buddhist believe that all phenomena in the world arise through cause and effect. Every action will have a consequence even though the consequence might not be immediately apparent. This is what many people know as "Karma". We are currently seeing the effects of people's negligence and indifference to protecting the planet. Even though it may not have been apparent 50 years ago, people are starting to experience the consequences of our lack of climate action all these years. That is why it is so important for us to take aggressive action now before it becomes too late. 
πŸ™Mindfulness 
As a Buddhist, it is important to be mindful of one's own actions, surroundings, and how we make other people feel. This makes us better equipped to cut through all the noise in our life and keep us on the path towards enlightenment. Similarly, as an environmentalist, we should be mindful about how each of our actions impact the environment, society and the economy. 
🌿
Does your religion align with your values as an environmentalist?

Instead of using room sprays and air fresheners with nasty chemicals that come in plastic or an aerosol can, I've been loving my diffuser from @duskaustralia. Thanks @ppptrck for giving this to me for my birthday!

I have it on almost everyday whenever I'm working at my desk and I don't know if it's just a placebo effect but I always feel like it gets me in the zone to be productive. My favourite essential oil scent to use is lavender! πŸ’œ

πŸ’§Use a cup instead of the tap to rinse your mouth
πŸ’§Do not start a dishwasher unless it's a full load
πŸ’§Wash your fruits and veggies in a bowl and reuse the water later
