DIY Hair Gel     

I’ve been recommended this recipe separately by two different staff members, so it must be good! It is especially good for curly hair and leaves the hair soft, smooth and smelling lovely.
Mix together 1/4 cup linseed (flaxseed) with 2 cups water. Heat in a pot until it comes to the boil (keep stirring to prevent the seeds sticking to the bottom). Turn the heat down once it starts to froth and let it continue to simmer until you reach the desired gel thickness (you don’t want it too runny or too thick). Once ready put a sieve or stocking over a container to strain out the seeds from the gel (the seeds are still good to use in your cooking or sprinkled on cereal!). Store the gel in the fridge as is, or you can add any of the following for added shine, body and fragrance: 1 tsp vitamin E oil, few drops of lavender, rosemary, tea tree essential oils (or your favourite fragrance), glycerin, macadamia oil. It can also be thinned out with water and put into an atomiser bottle for easy spritzing.

  • Along with our Agreena silicone wraps and beeswax wraps, we have added fabric and silicone food wraps to help with your transition away from cling wrap.

We have you covered for Father’s Day ideas, with gift vouchers, shaving kits, lollies and snacks, Dude Rock soaps, water bottles and insulated coffee mugs, and a range of teas and coffees.

In Store Recycling Changes 
Please be aware that we are no longer collecting beauty product packaging for recycling as Terracycle no longer collects these items. We are still accepting donations of the following, but please make sure to separate them before dropping off – putting them all into a single bin here in store just contaminates the recycling stream.

  • Batteries
  • Plastic bottle tops (e.g. milk bottle tops)
  • Aluminium ring pulls
  • Oral care products
  • Printer cartridges
Donated Jars
Thank you to everyone that has been donating clean, label free jars for others to reuse in store.  We are thrilled to see fewer jars with labels being donated as it is very time consuming for us to be removing them in store.  It takes us away from being able to keep goods as refilled as we would like and being able to spend more time making your time with us as enjoyable as possible.  So thank you!!

Wasteless Pantry Greenwood News: 16 August 2019

Contain yourselves!

We love seeing the wide variety of containers being used over and over, especially because they are just ordinary containers. Maccona jars, jam jars, random plastic tubs, empty formula tins, vintage Tupperware and all sorts of ordinary things that everyone has available to them. Please know that you and your containers don’t need to be Instagram-able to shop with us and to make a difference. Ordinary is okay. Ordinary is actually really great! Ordinary is what makes the world a better place. Pretty is nice, but totally unnecessary to improve things right now, today, in this moment. The most environmentally friendly thing you can use is something you already have. So bring out your ordinary and be your ordinary self. You’re in good company and we appreciate everything you are doing!

New products

We have added even more products to our already comprehensive range:

  • A new liquid deodorant is now in store! So, if you want to go refillable on your deodorant, we still have the great scoopable paste deodorant, as well as the new liquid one, along with containers for spray or roll on application.
  • In response to quite a few requests we now have Carob Buttons (yum)
  • A new 98% Fat-Free Tropical Muesli is proving popular – try some and let us know what you think…
  • Dark Chocolate coated Goji Berries are so good – better get some before the team and I buy them all!
  • Look out for Teff in a jar near our oils.  These are smallest grain in the world and are great cooked into stews, as a porridge or even sprinkled raw over salads
  • Lupin Flakes are also now available – check them out in our Gluten Free section
  • and, in addition to our existing pasta range, we are trying out Lasagna sheets

And, great news! The stainless steel razors are here and wooden handled shaving brushes will be in store in time for Father’s day (wink, wink). And we are pleased to see that the newer stock has no plastic in the packaging.

Events

Jeannie & Amanda from the inaugural store in Mundaring have been out in the community heavily spreading the waste free message, and it was fantastic to have them come to Greenwood in July.  Thanks to all of you who came along to learn more about Creating a Wasteless Home and to the friends who came along with you.


I promised to share a link to the recipe for the delicious and easy-to-make vegan chocolate brownie we had on the night so here it is:
https://www.veganaustralia.org.au/recipe_esther_s_zucchini_brownies
(This version wasn’t Gluten Free but I’m pretty confident you could substitute GF Flour.)

I also delivered a workshop at MOPS (Mothers of Pre Schoolers) in Mullaloo this month, talking about reducing waste, especially in the kitchen, and creating simple toilet fizzies.  Thanks to all for the warm welcome and great feedback.

You may have already voted on Facebook for a showing of the movie 2040 at Warwick Grand in the week commencing 24th September so stay tuned for more updates on this…

Reusing beats recycling – let’s talk about jars …

We love being able to offer all our customers clean jars, free of charge, so thank you to everyone that has been donating clean, label free jars.  We are thrilled to see fewer jars with labels being donated as it is very time consuming for us to be removing them in store.  It takes us away from being able to keep goods as refilled as we would like and being able to spend more time making your time with us as enjoyable as possible.  So thank you!!

Until next month..

All the best for continuing your waste reduction journey beyond the Plastic Free July challenge and remember we are happy to help where we can.  See you in store soon!

Warm wishes,

Wasteless Pantry Mundaring News: 11 August 2019

You are part of something big!

Did you know that 230 MILLION people participated in Plastic Free July this year?! Whether you made small changes or dramatic lifestyle shifts to reduce waste this month, know that everything you are doing is making a difference. The waste issues are still there, but every time you role model doing things a little bit better, you are helping to shift ‘normal’ toward better practices that help the planet and everything that is living on it. Jeannie & I now get to focus back in on the stores after being out in the community heavily spreading the waste free message, and it’s great to see old and new faces in the store. We love seeing the wide variety of containers being used over and over, especially because they are just ordinary containers. Macoona jars, jam jars, random plastic tubs, all sorts of ordinary things that everyone has available to them. Please know that you and your containers don’t need to be Instagram-able to shop with us and to make a difference. Ordinary is okay. Ordinary is great! Ordinary is what makes the world a better place. Pretty is nice, but totally unnessarily to improve things right now, today, in this moment. So bring out your ordinary and be your ordinary self. You’re in good company and we appreciate everything you are doing!

What’s been happening at the store:

* The liquid deodorant is finally in store! So if you want to go refillable on your deodorant we have scoopable paste deodorant, as well as liquid for spray or roll on application.  (We have the containers too if you need them) 

* We are gearing up for Father’s Day on Sunday 1st of September.  We have new gift vouchers available and the new shaving kits are proving very popular.  We are very excited to report that our supplier is now offering the shavers and shaving brushes without plastic in their packaging!!
* It seems that coffee is sustaining everyone on these cold days.  Just remember that we have lots of teas and drinking chocolate available too so you don’t end up with an eye twitch 

* We have recipes for dahl and soups on the wall ready for your winter cook ups.  We’re stocked up with lentils, dahl, split peas, beans, coconut milk powder, stock powders, herbs and spices for making curries, stews, roasts, dahl and soups galore.
* Thank you to everyone that has been donating clean, label free jars.  We are thrilled to see fewer jars with labels being donated as it is very time consuming for us to be removing them in store.  It takes us away from being able to keep goods as refilled as we would like and being able to spend more time making your time with us as enjoyable as possible.  So thank you!!
* You might notice that we have the Boomerang Bags box back at the front of the store.  We have plenty of fabric to keep us going for a while yet, but if you have any bags to return, please just pop them straight in the box when you are next in the area.

Winter Warmers without Waste

It’s not as cold as it should be but I’m still feeling the winter chill!

There is nothing like the comfort of a hot beverage to sooth the soul on wintery days.  At Wasteless Pantry we have quite a range of goodies for making:

  • Hot Chocolate
  • Loose Leaf Black Teas
  • Herbal Teas
  • Coffee Beans
  • Turmeric Latte 
  • Chai Latte
  • Beetroot Chocolate Latte (just add beetroot powder with cacao powder and your sweetener of choice to milk)

We have a range of tea and coffee making accessories if you need them too!

Did you know that you can make bath teas using our herbs and teas in one of our strainers or soap nut bags to add a bit of aromatherapy to your soak.  If you add a small amount of bicarb soda and epsom salts (which we also have available) to your bath it will soften skin and relieve tension in muscles.

 

Warming foods can be comforting and healthy too!

How about trying out porridge made with oats, muesli (for added flavour), buckwheat, millet or quinoa?  Top with our honey, maple syrup, golden syrup, dried fruit or sugars if you like something sweeter.

Or dahl, casseroles, stews, curries and soups made with our wide range of beans, lentils, split peas, powdered stocks (vegan friendly), herbs and spices?

Although, not everything has to be super healthy – maybe you’d like our custard powder and warmed brownie mix for a bit of an easy treat.  The beauty of going package free is that you could just buy enough for to make one mug of custard or a mug chocolate cake if you wanted.  You could, it is possible.

We have a bunch of recipes at the store to guide you and of course, you can buy just enough for the recipe to try it out waste free!

In case you want any of these recipes to go, we have insulated food flasks, travel coffee mugs and insulated beverage bottles that will keep your goodies warm for hours.

I tend to get into baking more in the cooler weather, the oven acting as a heater for the kitchen is an added bonus.  If you do too, you might want to consider reusable silicone baking sheets or muffin cups to reduce the need for baking paper or pattie pans.  We have them available for you to check out at our stores too.

There are lots of ways to keep warm on cool days without creating waste with Wasteless Pantry!

Low Waste Gifts for Dad’s

Father’s Day is nearly upon us (it’s on Sunday, 1st September 2019) and you might be thinking to yourself, “What should I get Dad this year?”

You want to get him something that is thoughtful, environmentally friendly (the search terms green gifts, eco gifts, zero waste gifts, gifts for waste-free Dad come to mind), and something that he might actually use.

We are here for you at Wasteless Pantry!

Firstly, let us remind you that Dad probably just wants to know that you love and appreciate him, which requires very little to express. Maybe you could cook him a meal, go out with him on an adventure, or just head out for a drink together? None of these things is hard to do but might mean the world to your Dad.

Secondly, if you feel weird rocking up empty-handed and you really want to give a gift, maybe consider something consumable like Dad’s favourite snacks or coffee (brought in a reusable container at Wasteless Pantry of course). Or you could find something secondhand that has sentimental value, like that book you used to read together as a kid or a beer mug from his favourite tavern when he was growing up. Or you could make something out of reused materials, like all those pallet frames and furniture that pop on Pinterest every year and show off all the carpentry skills he spent hours teaching you.

And if that’s just not going to work for you then we are happy to help you out with a few other ideas too:

  • Stainless steel lunchbox - something big and sturdy, or even stackable - that he'll think of you when he uses every day for lunch
  • Stainless steel water bottle - pick the size that works best for Dad, insulated or not, so he is always hydrated but doesn't have to buy disposable plastic ones any more
  • Food flasks - for keeping food and drinks hot or cold whilst Dad is out and about
  • Travel coffee mug - whether it's glass, flexible silicone or stainless steel we have one to suit Dad
  • Shaving kits - we have stainless steel safety razors, new blades, shave pucks (low waste shaving cream) and shaving brushes available
  • Coffee kits - think plungers, stove top espresso makers, reusable coffee pods and coffee beans with flavour descriptions like "strong great all rounder" just like Dad
  • Tea kits - we're talking teapots, tea strainers and so many loose leaf tea options (in both our tea and herbs sections)
  • Toiletries - maybe what Dad could use is a shampoo bar, dude rock (manly soap), bamboo toothbrush, plastic free floss, bamboo comb and natural deodorant (we have scoopable paste deodorant or refillable liquid deodorant in masculine scents on hand)
  • Toilet paper - if you have a Dad who spends a lot of time in the bathroom then maybe he'll appreciate the light reading that comes with each roll, particularly the red emergency roll

If it’s just too hard to pick, then don’t! We have gift vouchers too so your Dad can choose for himself (and we can email them if you prefer too).

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!

The other specialist recycling programs will continue unaffected (contact lenses, toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes, household batteries, bottle tops, bread tags and mobile phones).

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums out there and if you are still trying to figure out what to get your Mum, we can help you find some low waste ways to spoil you Mum, not the earth.

Your Mum will love the time you spend and the thought you put into doing something nice for her, much much more than any trinket or gift pack that you got her off the rack. We can help you get the ingredients for that cake you want to make her, pick out just the right amount of chocolate or even help you decide between the peppermint tea or the coffee beans. All without the waste 😉

Find some more last minute ideas here on how to show your Mum you love her, without giving her landfill fodder.

Wasteless Pantry Mundaring News: 10 May 2019

Let your Mum know you love her this Mother’s Day (hint, hint kiddies) 🙂

What’s been happening:

  • The Agreena Silicone Baking/Wraps have arrived and seem very popular so we’ve had to order more!
  • Terracycle created an updated poster about what we can and can’t collect in the beauty product recycling – please check it out next time you are in store.
  • Jeannie & I are almost fully booked for Plastic Free July related talks so will be out and about in the community throughout May, June & July – pop along and say “Hi”.
  • We started stocking WA grown walnuts – woot woot!
  • Did you know that our golden syrup goes beautifully with porridge? And that our muesli can be cooked up as an easy and cheaper flavoured porridge instead of those little packet ones? 
  • Food flasks are back in stock ready for warm lunches away from home.  They come in 400ml and 600ml sizes, are made with stainless steel and keep either food or beverages warm throughout the day.
  • We have plenty of handkerchiefs ready for cold & flu season too.  At home, we store them in a tin in the family room, that way they are always on hand.  Use them once and throw them in the wash or over and over depending on your preferences.  Whether you use a hanky or a tissue, remember to wash your hands after blowing your nose to limit the spread of germs.
  • It’s Honey Month!!  Celebrate by grabbing some of our locally sourced zero waste honey in your own container – no sugar syrup in these beauties and our beekeepers don’t feed their bees sugar either. Healthy bees are important!
  • As the cooler weather starts drying out skin, remember that we have our thick luscious moisturiser as well as our versatile body lotion available to keep your skin feeling its best.
