Mermaids by the sea 🧜🏼♀️🧜🏼♀️. These sister-girls (my gorgeous cousins) are already into the @reuseolution spirit. 🧚🏻♀️ Looking pretty in aqua, did you KNOW that often the dye from fashion factories, pollute rivers so STRONGLY, that villages downstream know what colours are going to make up the next season? Just by looking at the water! 🏞🏞🏞 Making more of the same, just to perpetuate landfill, pollutants & climate change, is cray cray. By definition I’m pretty sure. Let’s get our clothes in a cycle, just like our trends! The ideas are already circular, so let’s just include more and more material in that round and round. Jump on www.reuseolution.org to sign up for ONE YEAR of recycled & upcycled ONLY. 🙌🏽Send the message to brands that we want to be using more old to create new. If it already exists, let’s use it, not bury it. 👗Pre-loved clothes here by @theprojectsfiji & angel’s own recycled goods 💙💚🤍💙💚🤍 @chrissiewb @sophiedace #REUSEOLUTION
Back in the islands 🌴 like the bush bunnies we are 🌈🤪Got my cute child accessory (although I’ve barely seen either of them today thanks to the @fijibeachouse staff 💋) and I’m wearing these shorts for the second time this week (because that’s actually cool🤙🏽). Got the @reuseolution upcycled life going, with my secondhand tee-shirt dress that I cut into an actual tee-shirt (whoddathunk it!) about 3 years ago. Upcycling can be anything from mending, to altering, to repurposing material to have a new life. Some brands upcycle plastic bottles into Lycra or into new garments. Some brands collect their old collections and turn them into new collections. All forms of cycling, whether it’s re or up or bi ... is FAB! (I personally don’t like bicycling because I am very lazy but I hear other people enjoy it, go you.) Instead I’ll just peddle this ... JOIN THE @reuseolution !!!! 🌈🌈🌈 It’s just ONE YEAR, of recycled or upcycled attire. It will be FUN! Go to www.reuseolution.org ... tag #reuseolution on piccies and get involved peeps 🥰🥰🥰🥰
SIGN YOUR KIDS UP. 🙏🏼 Sawyer has reluctantly been part of the @reuseolution club for awhile now. He is often found in pink toned tee shirt (dresses) and just about anything his picky big sister discards. Monty has really sensitive skin, so we have to be careful what we buy for her. It’s only cotton or bamboo and washed in Sensitive Detergent which is not always the best for stain removal. Confession: I have had to buy her new tights and tees from Cotton On’s Pure Cotton Range before. I bought them a little too big, plain & ready to last the distance. ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ But what I learnt after that is, while Cotton is more el naturaaale and has a lower CARBON footprint, it does need fertilisers that release a heck of a lot of Nitrous Oxide which is ANOTHER Greenhouse Gas with 300x the warming power of carbon. 🤯🤯🤯 I mean ..... WE HAVE GOT TO GO CIRCULAR PEOPLE !!!! Sign up at www.reuseolution.org | follow @reuseolution.org | AND SEND ME PICS OF YOUR FAVOURITE FINDS FROM OUR GLOBAL CUPBOARD! I love taking pictures of myself hahha but it’s gonna get old reeeeal fast 🙃💋💋💋 send send send, share share share 🌏🌏🌏
HAPPY DECEMBER PEOPLE ! The first day, of the last month, of 2019. I don’t know about you, but I feel like 2020 is going to be a gamechanger !!!!🌏 So to get ready, I want to invite ALL of you to do something with me. 🙌🏽 It’s fun, fulfilling ... and right. Join me in a New Years #REUSEOLUTION 🤜🏼🤛🏽 ! A commitment to recycled & upcycled fashion in 2020. The Fashion Industry is the 2nd largest contributor to the climate crisis & 2/3 of harmful emissions come at the material production stage. 🧶🧶🧶 We really don’t need any more material ! We already bin millions & millions of tonnes 🙁! We already have everything we need in our global collective cupboard - so I’m going to spend December showing you the rainbow of clothes we share! 🌈🌈🌈The perfect Op Shops finds, Off Cut creations or Salvaged specials!! 👗🩳🧜🏼♀️ PLEASE DO THE SAME 🌙! Follow the brand spanking new @reuseolution | tag #reuseolution on your recycled & upcycled pics 🤳🏼| sign up at www.reuseolution.org ..... because I think it’s going to be easier if we do this together and can share tips & tricks (History tells me so.⭐️) xxx Matisse.
White Dress: Found in an Op-Shop in Savusavu, Fiji circa 2012. I was meant to be teaching @tonyrobbins to paddle board at @namaleresort (true story) and I got distracted by all the treasures and was 30 minutes late. 😉 No regrets. 🤍🤍🤍🤍
This is my crew. You can sit with us. But only if you want to chat all things fairy forest, hopes and dreams, what are these bites from, bachelorette love, bananas vs tomatoes, peppa pig, waffle the dog, cuddles and why we have to go bed now. 🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍
Australia is red & raw today. Red with pain. And rage. Raw with grief. And vulnerability. That’s what our government is forcing upon us, more & more. Vulnerability. They are forcing us all out into the unknown. They are forcing all our babies out of safety. Into a risky future we are not prepared for. Which put plainly, fucking pisses me off. All for the sake of some subsidised & inherently limited (& shitty) industries. 🤬 As the Australian Eastern Seaboard braces for “catastrophic danger” today, please do not be shamed out of asking the question of why. Why this has happened. Listen to the science. Not the cleverly conceited cover stories.🌪🔥🌩 Also remember, everyday is a chance for us to turn the ship ever so slightly. Most change happens incrementally. Today the NSW Parliament will be debating a Bill to remove consideration of climate change for new coal mines and gas-fields. It's likely to pass easily because ... well ... they are good at their job of protecting their interests. So let’s be good at our job too. Write to parliament. Tell them no. Follow & Commit to showing up for organisations like Greenpeace, 350.org, GetUp... who more often than not, work together to push back. We all have to push back. Wish I had more than thoughts & love to go out to everyone who have faced tragedy over the last few days. Heartbreaking days. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ EDIT: 🚨From those who know more are saying Salvos & Red Cross are the ones to donate to: salvationarmy.org.au & redcross.org.au
