This is my humble effort to reduce my plastic consumption and waste for Zero Waste Week 2020.
I've been very poorly this year and hope to support the Zero Waste movement with zest and vigour next year.
Day 1 of #ZeroWasteWeek, I'm sharing re-usable masks.
It's been 6 months since the Covid 19 pandemic swept the world.
The message remains the same wash your hands, wear a mask and keep your distance.
Stay safe everyone!
In an attempt to remove plastic cups from my life.
I have stopped drinking tea and keep a bamboo eco cup in my bag.
Many thanks to my sister Irem for this gorgeous William Morris bamboo eco mug.

Over the past 4 years I have discovered, tried and tested many zero waste bathroom alternatives.
I'm still using the following zero waste bathroom alternatives.
Organic Loofah instead of a plastic one
Organic handmade soap instead of hand wash
Herbal Tooth powder instead of toothpaste
Bamboo Toothbrush instead of plastic tooth brush and
Miswaak (cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree)
Organic Herbal Shampoo.
Thank you to my sister for this lovely William Morris cotton bag.
On days 6 and 7 I spent the day in the garden enjoying the weather.

Zero Waste week was founded by Rachelle Strauss in 2008 and began as a National UK Campaign.Campaigns last a week and take place annually during the first full week in September.
The campaign runs predominantly on social media and the website ZeroWasteWeek to reach a community of like-minded people who want to reduce residential or commercial waste, reuse materials and recycle as much as possible. The aim of the campaign is to help householders, businesses, schools and community groups increase recycling, reduce landfill waste and participate in the circular economy – in alignment with European recommendations and Directives.

This month I continued to heal from all my surgeries, raised awareness for Fairtrade Ethical Ramadan 2021 participated in a Wikipedia training session with Whose Knowledge and World Pulse and
was Sister of Ceremonies for the Encourager Party with World Pulse.
This month I continued to heal from all my surgeries, celebrated Fairtrade Fortnight 21 completed my 9th Six Items Challenge with Labour Behind the Label, and
participated in International Women's Day 2021 with The World Fair Trade Organization.
So here I am for the ninth consecutive year participating in the Six Items Challenge with Labour Behind The Label.
This year the challenge commences 17th February - 31st March 2021.
I have decided to participate and support the Six Items Challenge for the ninth year because I started to campaign for garment and factory workers while caring for my mother who had been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
The six items challenge means I choose six items of clothing to wear for six weeks.
