#ALOECOWARRIORS #YogaMat Why it’s important: As yogis, we hold dear the tenet of ahimsa, or non-violence. That makes practicing on a yoga mat that will ultimately end up clogging a landfill for decades to come troublesome. Options: Earth-friendly yoga mats are typically made from natural or recycled rubber. These yoga mats may also include natural materials, such as jute or organic cotton. Basic buying guide: If eco-friendliness is important to you, avoid yoga mats made of PVC (the traditional sticky mat), which does not break down in landfills and is difficult and costly to recycle. Rubber, jute and, cotton yoga mats, while available in a range of thicknesses, tend to be thicker and slicker than PVC mats. You can get a yoga mat that's eco-friendly, has a thickness that meets your needs for comfort and portability, and has a texture (such as a raised geometric pattern) that prevents slippage. My favourite mat to date is my Namaste Yoga Mat by @lululemon @lululemonausnz Made with newly developed Luvea rubber that's natural, sustainably-sourced, and certified to the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®). There are so many eco yoga mats on the market these days, the hardest part is making a decision! . . . . #saynotoplastic #ecoyogamats #igyogachallenge #yogachallenge #yogisofig #saveourmother #sustainableliving #reuse #recycle #igyogacommunity #yoga #yogini #ksepanamudra #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #myyogalife #instayogi #igyogis #igyogafam #goodvibrations #movement #yogagirl #Brisbaneyogi #yogajournal #Australia

#ALOECOWARRIORS #EcoAware Ok gang! I’ve been dying to share this with you all! Along with our amazing sponsors @aloyoga @alomoves @frankandwhit @bambuubrush @cultural_threads @thebikiniblock @findtap I wanted to bring @superbeewaxwraps into the light. This company is going to significantly reduce our need for plastic! Based in Thailand, handmade, reusable, plastic free! This company is making it so easy for us to reduce plastic in the kitchen and household. Their reusable bees wax wraps offer an eco friendly food storage alternative to plastic wraps & containers. Cover a bowl of leftovers, a wheel of cheese, or half an avocado. Wash with warm water and soap along with your dishes. Use again and again - in your zero waste kitchen and for quick storage around the house. Take them travelling! They are multi purpose. Cover your soap or toothbrush. #plasticdoesntlivehereanymore SuperBee Wax Wraps are handmade with love from high quality, locally sourced materials: 100% cotton fabric, pure OTOP-certified beeswax, organic coconut oil, and tree resin. I have personally had the pleasure of trying this product out. It exceeded my expectations to say the least. Not only am I saving the planet my fridge has some pretty amazing patterns and colours in there now and my food isn’t being choked to death. Head on over and check out their page! I love watching their videos to see how they are made, you can even purchase the wax and make your own! 🥰 🌏 . . #banthebottle #igyogachallenge #yogachallenge #yogisofig #saveourmother #sustainableliving #reuse #recycle #igyogacommunity #yoga #yogini #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #myyogalife #instayogi #igyogis #igyogafam #goodvibrations #movement #yogagirl #Brisbaneyogi #yogajournal #Australia
What exactly *is* my vibration? And why do I need to *raise* it? And not *lower* it? Or keep it exactly where it is? Why is my *heart* more valuable than my head? More *worthy*? Why do I want to *open* my hips? My heart? (This particularly sounds crazy to me) #yogalanguage #badyogi #badyogisunite #yogachallenge2019 #ibendsoidontbreak #yoga #makingshapes #igyogafam #strong #armbalance #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #brisbaneyoga #brisbaneyogi #yogachallenge #rainbowhair #igyogafamily #igyogachallenge #myyogalife #thisyogalife #igyoga #igyogi #purplehair #introspection #balance #flexible #yogisofinstagram #yogilife

#ALOECOWARRIORS #bathroomcount Isn’t it overwhelming and scary when you look around your bathroom. The good news is, we have options, changes we can make! Our bathrooms often fly under the radar where plastic waste is concerned. There are some sneaky plastics that have made their way into our bathrooms. Whether it’s the innocent plastic wrap around a tampon, the hearty plastic toothbrush or the more concealed microscopic plastic beads in beauty products, our bathrooms punch above their weight in our overall plastic waste footprint. -SWAP FACE WIPES FOR...BIODEGRADABLE OR REUSABLE CLOTHS, FLANNELS AND MITTS -SWAP PLASTIC BOTTLES OF SHOWER GEL FOR...SOAPS -SWAP YOUR TOOTHBRUSH...FOR A BAMBOO ONE -SWAP PLASTIC BOTTLES OF SHAMPOO FOR...SHAMPOO BARS -SWAP PLASTIC-STEMMED COTTON BUDS FOR...CARDBOARD OR BAMBOO STICKED VERSIONS -SWITCH TO REUSABLE MENSTRUAL PRODUCTS -SWAP YOUR DISPOSABLE RAZOR FOR...A METAL ONE -SWAP DENTAL FLOSS FOR...SILK FLOSS -SWAP TUBES OF TOOTHPASTE FOR...TOOTH POWDERS AND TABLETS -SWAP YOUR AEROSOL DEODORANT... FOR A PASTE IN A GLASS JAR I have started with a bamboo toothbrush, soap bar instead of body wash & deodorant has been a big one guys! Spray on deodorants are so bad for our bodies as well as the environment. I switched to a natural hand made paste, I much prefer it now on so many levels. It’s super economical, I’ve had this one for 8mnths already, paid about $15AUD and haven’t had to worry about putting it on the grocery list, running out, or potentially giving myself breast cancer. It’s all wins baby. A plastic-free bathroom is possible. Little by little. Start with replacing one thing a time and watch your plastic consumption drop! Switch to eco-friendly alternatives, reduce your plastic waste, enjoy both health and environmental benefits and help create a more sustainable future for all. . #banthebottle #igyogachallenge #yogachallenge #yogisofig #saveourmother #sustainableliving #reuse #recycle #igyogacommunity #yoga #yogini #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #myyogalife #instayogi #igyogis #igyogafam #goodvibrations #movement #yogagirl #Brisbaneyogi #yogajournal #Australia
“Each one of us can bring that consciousness that is linked with thousands of people. Thousands are linked with thousands, and those thousands are linked with thousands. Do you understand how effective you are? You can always do it with a smile and with peace and love. Peace is love, love is God, God is life, and you got to do it. One planet, one humanity, one mankind, one God.” Yogi Bhajan
