Glaring at a wall of ocean pollution. There’s a special exhibition about ocean plastic (and plastic in general) at the Museum of Nature in Ottawa and it’s only on for two weeks. I think these are its last few days so better get there quick! • Also...I updated the blog a couple of days ago and had no picture to go with it until now. But staring at a bunch of plastic that ended up in our ocean is a relevant picture to announce the fact that my post is about recycling. Please check it out on ecosiren.blog :) • • • #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #ecoblog #ecoblogger #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #lifestyleblog #environment #water #nature #sustainable #green #life #ecosiren #reuse #recycle #siren #ontario #ottawa #bemindful #plastic #oceanofplastic #plasticpollution #museumofnature #capitalofcanada

Just a pic to say I’m hoping to have a new blog post up in the next couple of days. July was a total write-off. I’m going to try and fix that in August by prioritizing things better and choosing what I actually want to spend my time and energy on. Mainly that means a lot less Netflix and a lot more writing, drawing and enjoying life. •••••• #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #ecoblog #ecoblogger #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #lifestyleblog #environment #water #nature #sustainable #green #life #ecosiren #reuse #recycle #siren #ontario #ottawa #bemindful #camping #frontenac #lakeview #sunset #summer

Today is 2018’s #EarthOvershootDay. It came a day earlier than last year. This means we’ve used up all the resources the Earth can naturally renew in a year in just over 7 months. That’s frightening but it also provides a clear call to action. Be mindful! Of what you buy, how much you buy and what happens to it in the end. Of what you eat and where it’s from. Of how much water and energy you consume. Of how you treat this planet - the only one we have. • • • • #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #ecoblog #ecoblogger #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #lifestyleblog #environment #water #nature #sustainable #green #life #ecosiren #reuse #recycle #siren #ontario #ottawa #earthovershootday #movethedate #bemindful

I am pretty dang STOKED to have found these @adidas shoes (which are in prime condition) for only $30 at @platosclosetbarrhaven. Not pictured, $12 @levis. And to think I almost didn’t stop in! • • • • #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #ecoblog #ecoblogger #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #lifestyleblog #environment #water #nature #sustainable #green #life #ecosiren #reuse #recycle #siren #ontario #ottawa #thrift #secondhand #buyused

I love my nearby @bulkbarnfoods because I can take in my own mason jars and fill them with snacks! Today I bought mixed nuts and mixed berries so that I can get all of my favourites (blueberries, cherries, almonds and cashews) at about half the cost of buying them all separately. I also bought the on sale pistachios. I eat so many almonds, it’s nice to switch things up. I’ll probably combine these nuts with the dried fruit and some chocolate chips to make trail mix. • On another note, my blog will be dedicated to poetry for the entire month of July. I’m going to take this month to focus on other hobbies - like writing fiction and drawing. Maybe I can also play catch-up and figure out a solid blog schedule starting in August. The first poem of July will be up tomorrow evening. Please check out ecosiren.blog and give it a read then.

New additions to my self-care from @lushcosmetics. Amoraco deodorant to replace my current product which is soon to run out. Scrubee body butter for in the shower moisture. Angels on Bare Skin face and body cleanser for when I want a smooth, moisturized face (and want to smell like a garden while taking care of my skin). Even though I purchased them this morning I’ve already tried all of them out. Check out my blog to see what led me to these products and what my first impressions are. It’s all ❤️ so far! • • • • #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #ecoblog #ecoblogger #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #lifestyleblog #environment #water #nature #sustainable #green #life #ecosiren #reuse #recycle #siren #ontario #ottawa #longweekend #canadaday #151 #sunshine #sun #lush #lushcosmetics

I love mangos! My tummy just grumbled like crazy telling me to eat dinner (7:53 pm as I write this). Chocolate milk for now until meal prep is done and then I will partake of mushrooms and pasta 😋 • • • • #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #ecoblog #ecoblogger #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #lifestyleblog #environment #water #nature #sustainable #green #life #ecosiren #reuse #recycle #siren #ontario #ottawa #reusable #produce #mangos #mealprep #food #tropical

I went camping this weekend and it was wonderful! Perfect weather, rocks to sunbathe on, a lake to swim in and oodles of time to relax and read. On a different note - I have been feeling very discouraged lately. Discouraged because I can barely maintain a three times a month posting schedule, because sometimes trying to be nearowaste is exhausting, because work can be stressful, and mostly because life is overwhelming. Let’s just say I am so happy to be going camping again this weekend. • • • • #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle #ecoblog #ecoblogger #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #lifestyleblog #environment #water #nature #sustainable #green #life #ecosiren #reuse #recycle #siren #ontario #ottawa #reusable #camping #frontenac #nature #thegreatoutdoors #gooutside #Godscreation
