For most foods I successfully avoid plastic packaging, but a lot of pasta in supermarkets is still packaged in plastic…
So I reuse the robust plastic bags as freezer bags! 🙂 © smarticular.net
…made from apple, orange or pear peel?!
The cold season has arrived. What could be better than to sit in your favourite armchair and sip a cup of hot tea? 🙂
But you acutally don’t have to buy tea.
You can easily make your tea infusion with the peel of fruits like orange, apple or pear.
You should make sure to use organic fruit. → Other tea ideas at smarticular.net → More recycling ideas for oranges on the ReThink-Blog
A very cool project by
pumpipumpe.ch for more sharing and less buying in this world.
Stick these stickers to your mailbox and show your neighbours what they can borrow from you! 🙂
The more you produce yourself the more you can reduce packaging waste…
So why not try to make washing powder by yourself?! 🙂
It’s easy and totally free.

Today is “Earth Overshoot Day”!
That means that we already have used up all of this years resources and are from this day forward stealing from future generations!
Earth simply can’t regenerate itself fast enough.
Just 50 years ago we managed with less than the available resources. Now Earth Overshoot Day arrives earlier every year, because our wonderfully designed economic system is based on infinite growth while it has not realized that the earth is finite….
In 2019 “Earth Overshoot Day” comes 3 days earlier than last year… It’s time to ReThink!
Make yourself aware what you buy, what you throw away, where you drive or where you fly and try to minimize your ecological footprint!
