Today is our first OurEcoLifestyle workshop… yeah! and according to our life filosophy, there is no printed recipe, you can find it just couple of lines bellow ๐Ÿ˜‰

Do you know that just 1liter of used kitchen oil can contaminate 10,000lt fresh water?

Do you also know that the average consumption of a belgium citizen is 40,000lt water per year?ย ย  So, if my math class were correct, just 4lt used oil can cause the contamination my entire fresh water reserve for one year?ย  Scary.

We, and also you, would not like to be the responsible for it, even if we live in a country where this kind or residues are procesed.

Another aspect to make your own soap? it gives a satisfaction… “i did it myself”, its economically interesting and … its #zerowaste !

Following first the safety instructions and having with you the neccesary equipment, here are the 2 recipies that we followed in the workshop:

Zeep met gebruikte olie

Chocolate Cake – Vegan & ZeroWaste

Hello OurEcoLifestyles ๐Ÿ™‚

Sinds August 15, 2017, i am following a “Plant-based diet”. I feel, that if i promote (and work) a sustainable lifestyle, animal products do not fit 100% in my way of living.

It is true, that we are used to use animal products in our diet sind our young age, but it can be changed and specially if you really belive in why are you doing it, why are you choosing a more sustainable way of living. It is also true, that if i go once a year to my parents in Dominican Republic, and my mom wants to prepair her amazing “Pastelon” or “Quipes”, i will for sure enjoy it with them. What i am NOT going to do, is to CHOOSE consume meet, milk, eggs or fish, i am surrounded of other delicius and healty substitutes… and every single day.

There are many options outside waiting for you, but even better, it is also possible to do in a ZeroWaste way… and foy sure i did it! ๐Ÿ˜€

A “Plant-based diet” is not bored at all, the opposite, i obly me to learn new flavors everytime i go shopping. “Chocolate Cake – Vegan & ZeroWaste” verder lezen

Challenge #almostzerowaste… Accomplished!

It has been a month of searching, adapting, and being happily proud about it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

This #almostzerowastechallenge was a well-considered choice, because, as environmentalists, professionals in sustainability and responsible parents, we know that we cannot count only on the government to tackle the environmental issues. All of us, as a society, must figure out what there is that we CAN do, and simply, do it, act our part as citizens. “Challenge #almostzerowaste… Accomplished!” verder lezen
