Zero waste

My first thoughts when I watched that TED talk (bloody love TED talks) about zero waste many months ago was, ‘what a great thing to do but nah, it’s not for me.’

And then, I stumbled upon a couple more articles, then a few YouTube videos and now here I am, about 1 month in to my zero waste journey. And, I’m calling it a journey because it is – I am nowhere near zero waste yet, but I’ve started to make the changes needed, and once you get started I don’t think you ever look back. The main message about all of this is doing something is better than doing nothing. Refusing to take that straw or bring your own bag to the store still reduces your impact on the world that tiny bit more than being a completely unaware consumer.

Being zero waste, unlike veganism, in my opinion cannot be done overnight. It’s a learning process which has easy and hard bits. Easy bits include no longer buying plastic water bottles or using plastic bags. Hard bits include resisting buying that packet of crisps or completely changing your bathroom habits.

I want to record my journey, encourage others to also try it out, just as people like sustainbly vegan and rehana sara inspired me. Unfortunately, I don’t have the skills or time to do YouTube but check out my instagram veganprina to keep up to date.

Please link me to your favourite zero-wasters and any videos/articles that are related! 

Until next time lovely people,

Must Watch Documentary

If you could live a life where you don’t have to murder and torture innocent sentient beings for no reason, would you?

If you live in the UK, or even if you don’t I would highly, highly recommend watching this documentary which shows the truth of the meat and dairy industry in the UK. After all, if you can’t bear to watch it, why is it okay for you to fund it?

 

My general rule about veganism is not to be too pushy as it turns people off. But other times people need truth bombs. And I hope this is one that will change your life for the better.

Until next time lovely people,

Technology Reliant World

I have been without internet for approximately 4 hours and I’m struggling. I hate that I’m struggling as I like to see myself as one of those people who love the outdoors and could live without technology for years if I had to (fat chance!). This got me thinking as to what would actually happen if when we finally run out of fossil fuel we don’t have an alternative for electricity and we have to sacrifice all our electronics. Would we even survive?!

If I wrote about every example this post would be the length of the magna carta but I ask you just to notice every time you use an electronic device today and whether you could do without it.

Now, I’m off to read a book or whatever else people in the dark age used to do.

Until next time lovely people,
