The Clean Attempt

2020 is fast approaching. Are your new year resolutions set in place? Remember to add a few achievable eco-friendly goals to your list ✨ – Here are some suggestions from us: 1. We can’t remember the last time we’d purchased single use plastic water bottles. This year, bring out the Jason Momoa in you, which means plastic water bottles are inexcusable, even if you are Chris Pratt 🙅🏻‍♀🙅🏻‍♂ 2. Can’t do the vegan or vegetarian thing? Start with Meatless Mondays and up your game to four or five days out of the week. Beef 🐮 is especially harmful environmentally, so focusing on eating less red meat (which is typically recommended anyway) can be a good place to start. 3. Make your environment environmentally friendly. Prep your living space so that you can live low waste with ease. Easy access to recycle bin. ♻️ Visible switches to turn off power when not in use. Motion sensor lights. Compost bin within reach. Reusable bags and bottles always with you. – What are a few of your new year eco-lutions? 🌎 Screenshot and repost this photo with the resolutions you want to include for the coming year! Remember to tag us @thecleanattempt to share them with us!

The Clean Attempt is an online shop that provides sustainable products, ranging from organic beauty care, razors, cutlery, straws, and eco-kits. Jacqueline Wong attributes her decision to launch a sustainable online shop to her desire to “make a positive change.” She started her low-waste journey after seeing an advertisement shared by a friend on Facebook that pointed out that every plastic toothbrush which has ever been used still exists on earth today. From there, she started to obsessively research about plastic waste and how it affects the environment, going on to design and develop homemade, sustainable products for all.

“On the 10th day of Christmas my barePack cafe gave to me. Ten tasty soups.” There’s nothing quite like wholesome and heartwarming soups over the Christmas season! 🎄 zero waste tip: leftover vegetables from Christmas dinner and season gatherings are perfect for turning into really rich soups! They’re already cooked meaning you speed up the time needed over the stove and are already rich in flavours just blend them all, add a little soy milk/water and pop over the stove. . . . —————— 🥣 🎄 🎃 —————— .
