Zoe Jazz 相信藉著一步一步的小改變,每個人都可以漸漸養成零浪費的習慣。她會自己研發很多環保清潔用品的配方,並在個人網站上和大家分享,像是體香膏、洗衣粉、潔牙粉等。她的ig帳號名 “ain’t no planet b” 意思是我們的地球沒有第二個,planet B 諧音 plan B,plan B在英文中指的是相對於plan A的替代方案,但我們的地球如果生病了,可沒有替代的地球。ain’t 是am not 的口語用法,ain’t no 雙重否定是一種語氣強調,表示根本沒有第二顆地球,所以要好好愛護它!

Insta gratitude! I see a day when “Goods & Services” are extended to “Knowledge & Experience”. I see a day when financial payment is one of many common ways to transact. .

Those that influence my personal development will receive my support. Recently, two people have dragged me out of my comfort zone and opened my eyes. These legends, @futureblackdesign and @zerowastehabesha, publicly shared a dose of their unique experience and knowledge. Later, they openly asked for funds in their stories/posts, so that’s what I gave them. Easy, tangible exchange. I have so much to learn. I have so much to thank them for.
.

It’s funny how this process can feel icky in reverse. I don’t feel comfortable asking for money (I listed my PayPal link for 5 days and took it off because nope... 😜 It felt weird!). I’m not sponsored and am still figuring out how to support myself on ANPB work. Being turned off by influencer marketing, I’ve grown to understand what I’m prepared to exchange for and one of them is Gratitude ❤️❤️❤️. Here are some forms of gratitude from readers that have made my heart sing:
💚 Saying thanks 🙂 The lovely messages of encouragement I have received have been reenergising and hugely appreciated.
💚 Sending resources to read, watch and learn more.
💚 Telling me about a unique situation. I’ve learnt a lot from the individuals that have contacted me with personal stories.
💚 Meeting up! Buying me a drink. It’s been amazing to meet new people through instagram.
💚 Sharing my profile. This simple act has given me exposure to writing opportunities and I’m truly gobsmacked by the support.
.
.
So, thank you. Thank you all for being the fuel for my writing. With your inspiration, I’ve written almost every day for 11 months and this creative outlet has been a healing exercise. I hope my writing has helped you too in some small way.

This is a post for all my non-vegan earth lovers and for anyone, like me, whose mind is boggled by zero waste dairy. It gets easier. Our approach is to seek out recyclable, reusable or byo packaging and generally eat more plants. While our health and well-being are paramount, we feel that any effort in favour of plant-rich foods should be applauded. .
As Michael Pollan says “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”
.
Here’s some food for thought on zero waste dairy:
💛 Adopt something plant-based: I’m a non vegan ex-cheese snob who loves soy milk, coconut yoghurt, nut butter; and macadamia feta. I’ve tried cashew Parmesan and discovered that it’s easier to make myself. It’s great on roast vegetables. As a result, I’m now cooking with nutritional yeast. It’s not always peachy. When our soy boccocini melted into a ‘pearl jam’ consistency, I must admit I struggled to find it appealing 😜
💛 Ask questions: By popular demand, a couple of local dairy farmers are now stocking milk in refillable glass bottles. We want to be a voice in that popular demand. For me, it still takes courage, but I’m getting used to saying “I’m trying to reduce my plastic use, would it be ok to put this in my own container?” I’m looking forward to a day when I can buy soy milk in glass too. We also return egg cartons for reuse.
💛 Avoid plastic: We have found milk, yoghurt and cheese in glass or paper packaging from local suppliers. We buy parmesan in bulk to reduce packaging overall. It’s a conundrum for me that many vegan options are not yet plastic-free in Australia.
💛 Favour local, ethical farmers: We’re lucky enough to live near ethical farmers. When we do buy dairy, we’ll try to support those that are not only ensuring that animals live well, but they also support environmentally sustainable practises in agriculture. Meat and dairy industries vary across the world, so this one takes a bit of research. I’m forever learning and try to be mindful of bias, propaganda and greenwashing.
💛 Make it yourself: I experimented with homemade yoghurt and it’s surprisingly easy! Am yet to make vegan milk, but the recipe for almond milk seems like a no brainer.

Even in the big city, I believe that zero waste has a high barrier of entry but this story has a happy ending. .
.
Set up: To begin my journey, I spent some sweet dollaridoos on a moon cup, a safety razor, beeswax wraps and a new lunchbox. These items made a significant dent in my weekly budget. A year later, it’s worked out to be financially viable and I don’t need to buy these items again. I tried to not buy anything I wasn’t 100% sure I needed (here’s lookin at you: tongue scraper!). I had to be in it for the long haul with this kit. .
.
Regular shopping: Today, I’m fortunate to be able to eat local, organic, plastic-free wholefoods because the soil here is rich and a portion of my income is expendable. I buy organic nuts and grains entirely package free. It’s easier for me because there are bulk stores within walking distance. Compared to the packaged “dollar dazzlers” at major supermarket chains, I started spending a lot more on food... but then something else happened: 💰I no longer needed to buy beauty or cleaning products.
💰We didn’t need to buy bin liners, cling wrap, aluminium foil and zip lock bags. 💰 We learnt how to buy and cook exactly what we need, how to store it and how to make use of scraps.
💰The bathroom cupboard needed little restocking because I was making my own or favouring multipurpose products. 💰I stopped buying goods brand new and learnt to repair instead of replace. 💰We sold items because we no longer had a use for them. 💰We started making more items from scratch like bread and tortillas, which worked out cheaper and more enjoyable. 💰 I realised that major supermarket chains charge more for organic produce (beauty standards?) so we saved by going direct to farmer.
💰I have a feeling that organic food is why I’m not getting sick as often, so I’m not buying cold & flu medicine all the friggin time... that’s just a theory... I’ll probably get sick now that I’ve suggested that... *cough*
.
.
The steep curve eventually balances out. It gets better. It pays off. It’s worth it. But I ain’t gonna tell you it’s easy. 🙃💚

This is face wash, make up remover, facial scrub, body scrub, shampoo, shaving cream & body wash in a teeny tiny little tobacco tin. The minimalism that comes from a zero waste mentality makes travel easy. . . I’m embarrassed to tell you how many toiletries I used to pack. I took every conceivable product to make me smell decent, have ok skin/hair and combat body fuzz. I was packing my bag in self defence against insecurities. It looked like I was preparing for the smelly-acne-stray-hair apocalypse. The apocalypse never came. . . This set of three soaps is more than what we need. I packed the scrub for luxury. I could have brought only one multipurpose soap. I just really like the gingery and cardamom smells that these soaps are kicking out. It brings me comfort and joy. #zerowaste #zerowastetravel #minimalism #soap #soapbar #shampoobar #facescrub #makeupremover #lowwaste #plasticfree #packagefree #christmastravel

Four years ago I quit a job I thought I needed because it paid the bills and sounded right...but it didn't feel right. At all. I would dread getting on the bus for my three hour round trip commute to sit in a dark and stale office surrounded by people who didn't seem to care about what they were doing one bit. But it was a good job and I was very lucky to have it, worked very hard to get there, and I thought that it was my best and only option. I didn't think I had a choice until I pinched every penny I could, saved up a bit of money to cover my expenses, put myself on a real budget, and gained the courage to start my own business. 
It was seemingly crazy, I was just about broke, my dad thought I was totally nuts, and there was zero evidence to prove that any of it would work except for this insanely strong gut feeling. So I followed it and quit. The day I quit was the day I launched my Kickstarter campaign for @Thesimplyco, which ended up being completely funded in just 48 hours. Three years later I felt the courage to again take a leap, and 9 months ago @packagefreeshop was born as a platform for some of my favorite people on the planet who are creating products that have an amazingly positive environmental impact. 
The day I quit my job four years ago I cried in a bathroom but when I walked out the door of that high rise I felt more empowered than I ever had in my entire life. That day I decided to live my values, pursue my passions, and find my voice. I try to carry that same courage with me every day. My goal in life is to help to inspire a positive environmental impact and that is what drives every choice that I make. Who knows where that will bring me next, but I know if I stay true to my values and focused on my goal, I can move mountains (of trash out of landfills ;)) I was so excited when @thepostmovie and @participant, asked me to share my Kay Graham moment to share this story with all of you. Was there a moment where you were unhappy or felt that you didn't have any choices, but then somehow found the inspiration, courage, or opportunity to make a change that impacted your life in a positive way? Let me know below! #ad #LeadingWomen

It was just four weeks ago that I burnt out. Taking over @packagefreeshop as the sole CEO during the holiday rush and running my two other companies at the same time I completely forgot to take care of myself. I was surviving on coffee and four hours of sleep. I wasn't eating enough, I certainly wasn't exercising, I wasn't seeing friends, my relationship suffered, I was feeling sad and I felt like everything was caving in. And then it did. I burnt out and I broke down... and for a split second my life seemed to shatter around me. I didn't know what was happening. I love working and I love my life, but I completely forgot to take care of myself and I paid the consequences physical, emotionally, and interpersonally. I'm saying something because I don't think we talk about burning out enough. I don't think we talk about self love enough. About the importance of putting ourselves first. I truly believe that if we don't, we will not be as well equipped to help others. But now I'm saying something, because it took me hitting my breaking point to realize how absolutely essential self love and self care is and how simple it is to forget about it. The moment I broke just four weeks ago was the moment I choose to change everything. That night I stocked my fridge with beautiful food from the market, I went to yoga, and I got a massage. I made a pledge to myself that each day I would eat all three meals, I would see or talk to a dear friend or family member on the phone, I would exercise, and I would do something amazing for myself. And I have kept that promise to myself. Four weeks later I have gone to yoga almost every day, have tried new classes like boxing and barre, eat amazing food, prioritize time with my friends, smile more, read more, and tell myself

In these 4 weeks my life has felt better than it has in months and my businesses are more successful than ever. I'm writing this for anyone who works hard but doesn't say thank you to themselves enough. You are amazing, you are powerful, and the better you are to yourself, the better your impact can be. Burnout is real, it happens all the time, and is totally preventable. Here's to self love! 🙋🏽💗
5 years ago I had a realization that even though I cared deeply about environmental sustainability, I wasn’t living that way. So I made a massive change in my life and decided to go Zero Waste in an effort to align my day-to-day actions with my values for environmental sustainability.
Fast forward and that decision has taken me many places and has afforded me the ability to take control of not just my waste, but also my life’s work through starting three companies all aimed at reducing waste, @trashisfortossers , @thesimplyco and @packagefreeshop.

@packagefreeshop Is my newest business that I started because I believe that as consumers we all should have convenient access to products that help us reduce our environmental impact. I also started Package Free Shop to empower amazing mission driven entrepreneurs who are dedicating their lives to tackling plastic pollution and waste and help their businesses to grow in a way that was sustainable.

Along the way, I met Daniel who stepped away from his company to help me to open Package Free Shop as a popup and make this dream a reality. He has now returned to run his company full-time, and I am so honored to be continuing the mission of Package Free as the sole founder and CEO of @packagefreeshop making us not just a female founded & owned business, but also one that is 100% minority & woman owned operated.

In the 9 months that Package Free Shop has been open, we have helped the brands we carry to scale at a rate so quickly that many have had to take on additional employees since we have driven so much traffic to them, we have worked with brands to shift their shipping materials completely away from plastic, and have even inspired brands to remove packaging from their products altogether.
We have also enabled our customers to keep 21,598 plastic water bottles, 683,280 plastic bags, 229,000 single-use cups, and 903,448 plastic straws out of landfills.

But this is just the beginning!

I am so proud to be the founder and CEO of Package Free and look forward to continuing to grow, learn, and expand with all of you as we continue to “Think Outside The Box” and help make plastic pollution and waste a thing of the past! 🚯

Walking or biking the 20 blocks each way to the farmers market every Saturday to get my vegetables and compost my food scraps is my routine and quite honestly my favorite part of my week. It calms me, it connects me to the seasons because I know what local food is growing and I can tell what the weather has been like based on the cracks in the tomatoes or the stiffness of the greens. I’m excited to be sharing this very special and sacred part of my life for #doyoustories. Eating local, seasonal food is nicer to my body, better on the planet, supports ethical farming practices because I know the farmers I am buying from and how they grow their food and support their employees, and it is always a surprise and a challenge when I have to think of things to cook with what I buy. You could win a chance to chill with @caradelevingne by telling your own story and entering the #contest – upload a photo/video of your own #doyoustories, tag @puma @caradelevingne @pumawomen & make sure your profile is public #sponsored #farmersmarket #doyou #liveyourvalues #liveyourtruth #whatmakesyouhappy #routine #local #seasonal

Last year a group of mermaids went to Fiji for a mermaid retreat. The ocean was sparkling. The sun was shining. The beaches were full of trash. The warm breeze had eery waves of smoke & ash, blowing off piles of plastic that were set aflame. 
We had adventured over to this island nation for pleasure & purpose. We didn't want to contribute to the downfall of paradise, we wanted to be a part of the solution and make a difference. We cleaned beaches. We brought our trash to the most expensive resorts, presuming they had the most resources to properly dispose of the plastic trash. We learned that even these big name resorts let their staff burn plastics, exposing them and the rest of the islands to toxic fumes. Fumes that are resulting in serious lung disease. Frustrated, we tried a different method of collecting the trash on high ground, so that it couldn’t float out to sea and also no human would burn it. We hoped it would be found once recycling options were available. We also tried to support recycling efforts on Fiji. A company stock piling recyclables in warehouses, waiting for an opportunity to fill empty Chinese import/export ships on a homeward journey. Now with China's 'green wall,' their campaign has crumbled. 
Perhaps we could work with hotels and resorts to set up recycling plants. To gather investment. To support a clean, healthy, thriving Pacific. To set up water refill stations in their hotels, to support reusable water bottles instead of single-use plastic bottles. 
To be honest, I have tried reaching out to many of the big name resorts & I heard nothing back.

So I am asking for help. If you have any contacts in Fiji please explore them and introduce me if they are interested in working with me on this. I hope they will want to install water refill stations, we can promote & support any effort to reduce plastic waste. Especially plastic water bottle waste.

Please ask the resorts to step UP & push DOWN the plastic pollution they are knowingly contributing to. They are not the enemy! We are asking them to be part of the solution.

To be honest, I have tried reaching out to many of the big name resorts & I heard nothing back. So I am asking for help. If you have any contacts in Fiji please explore them and introduce me if they are interested in working with me on this. I hope they will want to install water refill stations, we can promote & support any effort to reduce plastic waste. Especially plastic water bottle waste. Please ask the resorts to step UP & push DOWN the plastic pollution they are knowingly contributing to. They are not the enemy! We are asking them to be part of the solution. ONLY 1 "Early Mermaid" Price spot left on Fiji Mermaid Retreat! Book in to join our adventure with purpose 15-21 April’s
