#Solution : #ReusableStraws if you must suck, carry your own utensils. Rhis seems to be a repidly growing trend. I love when #sustainability is trendy. Reusable straws are the perfect first step to reducing the amount of #plastic you throw away each day. Don't want to purchase a reusable straw right now? That's okay. Here are some other small ways you can help reduce your plastic waste:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ask for no straw when you're at restaurants, or ask for your take-out drinks with a lid you can drink from instead of getting a straw! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #zerowaste #plasticfree #noplastic #savetheplanet #plasticwaste #plasticpollution #banplastic #notoplastic #plasticwaste #plasticfree #plastic #LiveIntelligent #nowaste #zerowastelife #plasticfreeliving 📸's from @ecolunchbox, @paponeisgifts @strawhutco, @sucka.straws, @pureosophy @kandkfabnml
#Message Stop Unnecessarily Sucking!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Since most people love fish, you should care, because this directly affects seafood eaters. Congrats this just became your problem as well. #Remember, you can encourage your local store from selling #plasticstraws if no one uses them, they may stop offering them 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#zerowaste #plasticfree #noplastic #savetheplanet #plasticwaste #plasticpollution #banplastic #notoplastic #plasticwaste #plasticfree #plastic #LiveIntelligent
Stop using #straws. You can encourage your local store from selling them if no one uses them, they may stop offering them 😍 #Problem: Plastic straws are really bad for the ocean. You may be wondering: What's so bad about plastic straws? They're so small, they must be so insignificant in the grand scheme of things. It’s estimated that we use over 500 million every day in America, and most of those end up in our oceans, polluting the water and killing marine life. We want to encourage people to stop using plastic straws for good. If we don’t act now, by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Most #plasticstraws are too lightweight to make it through the mechanical #recycling sorter. They drop through sorting screens and mix with other materials and are too small to separate, contaminating recycling loads or getting disposed as garbage.
#Solution is to #reuse what we already have. Restyling old fashion is a true art. Anyone can style new designs. There are so many designers on IG that reuse textiles. Here’s a before and after of what @MadeByToya created with a colour coordinated #ogdencami. 😍 Trousers were self drafted. #therefashioners2018 #upcycledfashion #refashioning

#Problem One of the reasons I started this was due to fashion waste. On a trip to Kenya i noticed dirty donations being sold in fashion shuos in the slums of Nairobi. It made me rethink who I was donating to and how much I understood their process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Does the consumer even know there is so much deadstock in the world? There is far too much production for the demand, [so] instead of starting over again, we use what is already there, what might otherwise end up in the shredder.” says Van Bethlum #Fastfashion holds a prominent position in the apparel industry despite the many problems associated with it, from labor conditions to clothing waste. In the three years since the tragic Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, the revolt against fast fashion has gathered steam. Events such as Fashion Revolution Week and the adoption of business models that promote swapping and upcycling are signs that change is in the making. One example is the work of two Dutch designers. Alexander van Slobbe and Francisco van Benthum are taking production remnants from H&M, Mango, and Zara and making them their own.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The result is “Hacked,” The designers describe the project as offering a “radical alternative to the growing range of fast-fashion chains,” and is intended to spur conversation on intellectual property, consumerism, and waste. Van Slobbe and van Benthum were frustrated by overproduction and the few protections for designers in the fashion world. “You can take any design, introduce seven changes to it, and it’s a different product, while it remains directly visually recognizable,” van Slobbe said. #zerowaste #sustainablefashion #slowfashion #upcycle #reduce #reuse
