This September I continued with Plastic Free July.
Participated in Zero Waste Week 2019 and Climate Action Day.
Received my certificate for Future Learn MOOC, Fashion's Future
and the Sustainable Development Goals.
This month I continued with Plastic Free July and invested in a bamboo toothbrush, an organic loofah, organic laundry softener and soap nuts
Organic Laundry Softener
Soap nuts are Organic Laundry Detergent
They are 100% Natural and Biodegradable
Instructions: Use 5-7 soap berries for a full load of washing.
Place the bag and berries directly in the washing machine with all your laundry.
Soap berries can be re-used 5-6 times and then disposed preferably in a composter.
Soap berres do not produce much foam.
Use warm water for washing clothes or soak the bag with berries before placing in the washing machine.

This is my humble effort to reduce my plastic consumption and waste for Zero Waste Week 2019, Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.
Day 1 of #ZeroWasteWeek, I'm sharing and supporting a fantastic social enterprise called #ENABLE.
Many thanks to my husband for purchasing an ethical b'day gift this year.
Any advice from gardeners regarding how to keep my succulent alive would be appreciated?
ENABLE is a UAE National social enterprise based in Dubai.
Enable empowers special young Emiratis with cognitive disabilities by enrolling them in extensive entrepreneurial program.
The skill set delivered will hopefully "enable" individuals with such special abilities to start their own retail units and therefore achieve individual financial sustainability.
We offer beautiful indoor plant arrangements using quality #succulents and #cacti sourced from national and international well-known suppliers.
As a social enterprise, 100% of ENABLE products will be used to fuel its retail operations with 15% of each product sold will go back to the employee who created it to empower their abilities.

A little note for my neighbours
Thank you for reading this months blog.
I look forward to recording more videos once I regain my energy and my shoulders have healed.
Fashion's Future and The Sustainable Development Goals
This year the Fairtrade Foundation organised several webinars about Fairtrade Farmers and the Climate Crisis before and during Fairtrade Fortnight 2023.
I have translated this vlog in Urdu.
اس سال فیئر ٹریڈ فاؤنڈیشن نے فیئر ٹریڈ فورٹ نائٹ 2023 سے پہلے اور اس کے دوران فیئر ٹریڈ فارمرز اور موسمیاتی بحران کے بارے میں کئی ویبنارز کا اہتمام کیا۔
میں نے اس بلاگ کا اردو میں ترجمہ کیا ہے۔
This year's International Women's Day campaign was about embracing equity.
Sadly my right shoulder has been very painful and didn't receive the World Fair Trade Organization tool kit in time and designed my own IWD23 poster.
I decided to write my poster in English and Urdu.
I hope I can record a video for next year.
اس سال خواتین کے عالمی دن کی مہم مساوات کو اپنانے کے بارے میں تھی۔
افسوس کی بات ہے کہ میرا دایاں کندھا بہت تکلیف دہ رہا ہے اور مجھے ورلڈ فیئر ٹریڈ آرگنائزیشن ٹول کٹ بروقت نہیں ملی اور میں نے اپنا IWD23 پوسٹر ڈیزائن کیا۔
میں نے اپنا پوسٹر انگریزی اور اردو میں لکھنے کا فیصلہ کیا۔
مجھے امید ہے کہ میں اگلے سال کے لیے ایک ویڈیو ریکارڈ کر سکوں گا۔
This month I continued to heal from my shoulder procedure (January 2022) and am learning to live with pain in my right shoulder.
I participated in several webinars the first being the World Cancer Day 2023.
The second webinar was organised the World Pulse Changemaker Lab 2022 Program.
I participated in Fairtrade Fortnight 2023 which commenced February 27th - 12th March.
