Experiences, not things... yesterday we had dinner on a train! πŸš‚ Super cool, we got on board in Amersfoort and went to Weesp, Amsterdam, Maarssen, Utrecht and back. During the 2hr train ride we got a 3 course (veggie) meal and we saw the landscape changing and the sky turn dark. Although the food wasn't very special the experience was! 😊 Chooo chooo all aboard! 🚈 Little tip: don't share this post with your lover and surprise him/her with this original idea like it was your own πŸ˜‰ #train #dinnertrain #experiencesnotthings #dining #eatingout #restaurant #datenight
Zero waste doesn't mean buying fancy stuff. It's about simplifying! When I just have a slice of bread to go I'll just use a cloth napkin that I already owned. After usage I wash it and that's it. No lunchbox, lunchskin or stasher bag required! What's your favourite simple zero waste tip? .

There are sooo many options for offering bulk in food stores. What's your favourite?

This Friday we need COFFEE! πŸ˜‚β˜• But... let's talk about that for a bit. In the Netherlands we drink 260 liters coffee per person on average and almost every house has a coffee machine. But in our current society the machine is almost cheaper than a bag of coffee πŸ€”. Because of these cheap and not-functioning products only in the Netherlands we have 350 million kilos of e-waste (the products that can't be sold second hand because of their poor quality i.e., source NVMP) per year!! πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜₯ So... when we needed a coffee machine for our store we partnered up with Bundles. At @bundles_official you pay for your cup of coffee instead of the machine. It's a pay-per-use system. We wrote a lot about it on the blog but here's how it works: you rent a coffee machine (or laundry machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher etc.) and they give you a high quality product (so you don't have any investment costs) . If something is broke they fix it for you free of charge and because of a tracking system they automatically deliver coffee beans when you run out of it. I mean... wow! 😍 Because of this system producers are encouraged to make high quality and repairable products. And therefore Bundles has already saved 2000 disposable machine, 91kWh energy and 220 tons of CO2.  Curious? With the code smir_actie you get 50 cups of coffee for free! Wanna taste it first? Ask about it in our store @smir.store .
What do you think about these kind of solutions to prevent ewaste? Would it be something you would use? 😊

I bought this sign in Sweden for Nickys birthday. Didn't realise she would act like a boss as well πŸ˜‚ Working with your sister is great: when you fight you have to make it up cause otherwise you will have all the shitty family holidays πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ Nope, we don't always agree with each other but our values are aligned and we understand each other without saying a word. And okay, she's good with numbers so she deserves that sign even if it makes her bossy haha #girlboss #boss #baas #bazin #sister #sisterlove #family  #leukdatjeerbent #blijdatjehierbent #omgdezehashtags
I love it how these are actually the pictures that friends send me from their holiday address πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ They certainly know that I always appreciate some zero waste spam πŸ˜ŠπŸ€— This is in Berlin by the way. Nicky also found a lot of zero waste stores in German cities. Awesome!!! I wish we were not so  conservative in the Netherlands cause if we, as a country,  would appreciate real food and a more simple lifestyle there would've been more bulk stores in the Netherlands. I'm convinced about that. Also: when there are bulk options available I.e. at your local bakery or food coop, pleaaaase support that! πŸ₯•πŸ₯¬πŸ₯’ Not only for your own happiness but also for them bees and ants πŸπŸžπŸ•·πŸ¦ πŸœ .
Einde van deze spreekbeurt over het belang van lokaal en duurzaam consumeren.πŸ˜‚

I gave the kitchen a little makeover so that I have even better access to the most frequently used bulk jars I own. And I love it! When I'm whipping up a salad I can easily get some couscous, pumpkin seeds, nuts etc πŸŒ±πŸ€— and admit it: this looks sooo pretty amiright? 😊 Where and how do you store your foods? .

Monday... who needs coffee? πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚ There are so many reusable coffee cups out there lately so using those disposable cups are definitely not done anymore! But.. which one do you choose? I personally like the left one from @rcuponeplanet for a coffee to go on the train. Its leak proof which is awesome and insulated. When I'm at the office I like the @keepcup one cause it's glass and has a cork band. And for longer trips I love the thermos @retulp flask cause it keeps my tea or coffee hot for hours! So... which one would you prefer? Or did I forget something? Happy Monday folks! #monday #coffee #zerowasteliving #zerowastelife #bulk #bulkisbeautiful #zonderafval #zerowaste #sustainable #zonderplastic #cleanocean #plasticfree #plasticvrij #reusable #reuse #noplastic #coffeeecup
Leaving the earth a cleaner place for our future generations 🌍. That was the mission of my Green College at  @zelfstroomnl in Den Bosch β˜€οΈ. I wrote an article about our zero waste journey, where I share the WHY and HOW of our lifestyle. Curious? Make sure to check out the blog at https://www.zelfstroom.nl/landing/zerowasteproject/ πŸ€—. Also via #linkinbio (zero waste journey) and swipe up in story. I really love the mission of the company as well by the way: they offer solar panels for people who cannot afford the high investments. 😍🌻 That way we can make the energy transition even faster and better! Do you already have solar or green energy? #zerowaste #nowaste #plasticvrij #zerowaste #zonderafval #zonderplastic #zerowasteliving #plasticfree #plasticpollution #Zelfstroom # #zon x#Duurzaam #zorggoedvoordeaarde #greencollege #nowaste #duurzaamleven #duurzaamwonen #inspiratie #energie #daarkrijgjeenergievan #collab #zerowastejourney #duurzaam
Remember the herbs I got from mum and dad last Sunday? They're still going strong and are still crispy and green. How? Well just by storing them in a damp cloth. Every day I make tea with it and check if the cloth is still wet enough. If not, I add a little water. You can also store it in a glass jar with some water (check @gittemary for inspo) which has the benefit that you can actually see them and are probably more likely to use them. I also store fresh spinach and other leafy greens this way. It's so nice!
This tea was mint and lemon balm. I added a little bamboo @plasticdieet straw to celebrate that it's @plasticfreejuly . What are your favourite herbs for tea?

They should totally have a show called MTV FRIDGE where they visit peoples fridges and you can see what's inside.😍 I always look at house tours on YouTube and always secretly hope that they will open the fridge haha. πŸ˜‚Am I the only crazy person who likes this?πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Well... maybe I should give the first example. This is our current fridge situation. There's usually more fruit and veg 🍏πŸ₯’πŸ₯•in it but we're not home every evening this week and I already made some stuff. We had pasta (see the leftover container), mushroom Shawarma (yummmm) with home made flatbread and a little couscous dish already so those things aren't shown here.πŸ€” probably should take another photo after I did groceries, right? 😊 On the upper shelf you see how I store my lettuce πŸ₯¬(mark a cross at the root and place it in a bowl with water), herbs (damp cloth) and spinach (also damp cloth). In the veggie drawer (there's more in there but it didn't fit the photo) I store my carrots πŸ₯•πŸ₯•in a jar with water. All these little hacks make our food last longer and our grocery trips less often. What's in your mtv fridge? πŸ™†β€β™€οΈ
