Hoppala, wie die Zeit vergeht ^^ Und schon ist die dritte Woche der Zero Waste Challenge um! Diese Woche ging es vor allem um Zero Waste Shopping.
Going Zero Waste, Be Zero und Zero Waste Nerd haben es wirklich geschafft möglichst viele Zero Waste Aspekte in eine kleine Challenge zu packen. Und Lebensmittel einkaufen gehört ganz klar zu meinen Favoriten 🙂
Was mir noch eher schwer fällt, ist das Finden und Verwenden von nachhaltigen Stiften. Auch wenn ich so gut wie alles auf meinem Laptop schreibe, habe ich immer noch einen Kalender aus Papier und einen Haufen Notizzetteln. Über lang oder kurz werde ich für mich passende Alternativen zu Kugelschreiber & Co. recherchieren müssen.
Update: Zero Waste Challenge – Woche 3
Tag 15 – farmer’s market
#zerowastechallenge day 15: farmers' market 💚 shopping at farmers' markets feels like a little adventure 😊 this one is every Friday at the Altlerchenfelder church (check out my blog for a #zerowasteshoppingtrip guide for the 8th district of Vienna) – these markets don't have to be huge to have a lot of produce 😉 you will get seasonal vegetables and fruit, cheese, bread, meat, fish and often a few fine goods 👌 #zerowastetip : check out your local markets and bring more #clothbags than you think you might need 😄 #seasonal #farmersmarket #viennamarkets #greenliving #buylocal #supportyourlocalbusiness @adamah_biohof 🔸 challenge by @going.zero.waste @bezerodenver @zerowastenerd
Tag 16 – simple raw eats
#zerowastechallenge day 16: simple raw eats 💚 I am always amazed how colorful vegetables can be 😊 no greens and it is still a salad 😋 with chive flowers on top! 🌸 especially during summer, I eat more often salad than anything else 🌱 I can totally support to eat more vegetables! grow them yourself and you have 'free' food all summer long 😊👍 #zerowastetip : homemade dressings are the best! fast and simple: just mix olive oil, vinegar, honey, mustard with salt and pepper – done 🍯 #raweats #morevegetables #greenliving #saladtime #homegrown #homemade #zerowaste 🔸 challenge by @going.zero.waste @bezerodenver @zerowastenerd #30daystozerowaste
Tag 17 – ditch disposable pens
#zerowastechallenge day 17: ditch disposable pens 💚 ok, I have to admit the picture might be a little far fetched 😉 but this cute little elephant is perfect for summer parties! instead of writing down your name on your glass, you get a little animal 😊 no more pens! since trying to live with less waste, I haven't thrown away a single pen, but still need to find a sustainable solution for when I do ✒️ #zerowastetip : still remember your fountain pens from school days? time to #reuse them 😊 and sometimes you don't need a pen at all! 🐘 #zerowaste #elephant #refuse #noplastic 🔸 challenge by @going.zero.waste @bezerodenver @zerowastenerd
Tag 18 – snacks
#zerowastechallenge day 18: snacks 💚 I don't often bring snacks, but when I do I go all in 😄 perfect for long bus rides and hikes: hazelnuts, chocolate covered strawberries, dried cranberries and mango ❤️ best thing? bought in bulk at @der_greissler 👍 #zerowastetip : bring (fresh) fruit and some nuts and you will be covered when you need a sugar boost 😋 #zerowaste #zerowastetravel #bulkshopping #noplastic #skipthebag #greenliving 🔸 challenge by @going.zero.waste @bezerodenver @zerowastenerd #30daystozerowaste
Tag 19 – cloth bulk bags
#zerowastechallenge day 19: cloth bulk bags 💚 best #zerowaste thing ever! I almost put everything into my cloth bags. shopping made easy 😊 pasta, fruit and dried goods bought at @der_greissler 👍 true, it's even easier in bulk shops like his, bit it works in supermarkets and at farmer's markets as well! 👌 #zerowastetip : take what you have! no need to buy anything new – these bags are hand-me-downs from friends and collegues and were nost likely to be thrown away 😳 #secondhand for the win 😄 #zerowastevienna #bulkshopping #skipthebag #greenliving #zerowastehaul 🔸 challenge by @going.zero.waste @bezerowastegirl @zerowastenerd
Tag 20 – zero waste grocery shopping
#zerowastechallenge day 20: zero waste grocery shopping 💚 you don't need a special store to get your groceries #packagefree 👆 although bulk shops make it a liiitle bit easier 😉 check out your local stores and see what you can find – you might be surprised how many things you can get at least #plasticfree 😊 #zerowastetip : explore your neighborhood or places you usually visit regularly and see what other shops you find besides your usual supermarket. ♻️ if you happen to be around the 8th district in Vienna, I made a whole map for a #zerowasteshoppingtrip 😋 check it out on my blog! 🔸 challenge by @going.zero.waste – she and a few other blogger have their own challenge going on at the moment! on exactly this topic 👌 – @bezerowastegirl @zerowastenerd #30daystozerowaste #zerowasteshopping #greenliving #byoc #skipthebag
Tag 21 – recycling
#zerowastechallenge day 21: recycling 💚 there is a reason why #recycling isn't the first R of the 5 R's ♻️ it is just not the best option! but if you can't #refuse and #reuse it is still better than letting your waste go to landfill 😉 this bottle is just one-way – bound to be recycled 😕 would be better if they you refill them… but well, maybe I find a way to reuse it 😊 #zerowastetip : check before you buy something packaged how and where you can recycle the material 👍 #zerowasteaustria #zerowastevienna #greenliving #ciderlover 🔸 challenge by @going.zero.waste @bezerowastegirl @zerowastenerd #30daystozerowaste
