  1. My process has been slow but I found slower form habits. Where I was then (2 years ago) to now I'm grateful for all I've learned and will continue to learn and for where i am from where i started. This is where I've gotten in two years to skim the surface:
    I have gotten rid of things I no longer need (constant process) and make my own face and body and cleaning products from ingredients in the food section or is more cost effective and works better. I re-use jars after meals or used product is gone, use household towel, hand towels and use clothing till I no longer wear it, like it or pass on when I've gotten something else, hang dry clothes and make due w what I already own before running to get some thing else (which would have to be very specific). Use old clothes for sewing projects to bring back to use in a different way.
    I also try not to be so attached to my phone when out to interact with other people, I like the tip about shutting down electronics for a certain time.
    I am always working to do better and not fall back into old habits and making small changes and building on what already has worked for me and hope others can know it is possible if you want to try.

  2. We can also buy minimal products – including makeup, shampoo, clothing and food products with disposable packaging. Or, support ethical brands which have less packaging/biodegradable packaging and which don't have chemicals that harm the environment (like shampoos and facial cleansers which we wash down the drain). Also, we should use less perfume sprays which often have formaldehyde in them. Roll on natural oils are often better!

    We should also try and avoid buying excessive clothing (particularly made of nylon and plastic materials) and throwing it away. Instead, wear it as much as possible and give it to a second hand shop if it's still in decent condition. Great tips, thanks! 🙂 🙂

  3. Absolutely love this video Niomi Smart! Wish you would make more like this, as it is such an important, ongoing issue. These are such great tips, that don't take a lot of effort, but make people think twice about their daily habits (me including). I'm originally from the United States, but have been living in the United Kingdom for a year and 4 months now. One of the first things I noticed about your markets is that many of your products are locally grown, which helps support the local farmers, and the quality of produce/meats are of a much higher standard. I also love the idea that everyone brings their own reusable bags, as the stores charge for them (the States should implement this). I've been watching your videos with regularity for the last year or so, and love your energy and overall concepts (especially in health products and vegan cooking)! Thank you for your videos, I know they must take a lot of time and effort, but there are so many people that love them XX

  4. I know this kind of defeats the purpose of your channel, because you're beauty and fashion orientated.. But, trying to lower your cosmetic consumption is a big thing too! I mean the 6 tips you gave are a great start. To be honest I think I've been doing most of them all my life, thanks to my dad who has always been eco friendly. But all the chemicals you put on your face with makeup, creams, cleansers and all that stuff is not only bad for the environment, but also for you! Just think about all the bottles and pots of creams and shampoos and even mascaras – that's a massive amount of plastic! I know this is a hard one. I've been slowly easing off makeup and using natural oils for my skin and the difference is major! My skin and hair have never been better! Anyway, I love your engagement for our planet, I think if everybody makes these little changes in their lives, we're already heading in the right direction! xx

  5. This is such a great issue to address. I'm so inspired by this video to see that people are actually caring about what's happening to our planet instead of turning a blind eye to it. I don't think any YouTubers ever mention such issues but they are super important. So amazing Niomi❤. Much love😊

  6. I really love this video and I think it is very important so, I hope you are going to make more to inspire more people!
    What I do during the day is using my bike instead of the car. I like the bike more than walking because it is faster.

  7. Using reusable coffee cups! So many of us grab a daily coffee when we’re out and about, but don’t think about how much this equates to! Every year 100 billion coffee cups are sent to landfill as they are not recyclable or biodegradable – in the UK, and less than 1% of all cups per year are biodegradable.
    There’s a brand of reusable cups, Ecoffee cups ( https://ecoffeecup.eco ) which are made of bamboo, the most sustainable crop,
    and are therefore completely biodegradable! It does come with a silicone sleeve and lid, but that’s widely recyclable.
    They’re really great to use and it’s a brilliant idea, so thought I would share and hopefully influence at least one person 😊

  8. I love the topic of this video. I'm constantly looking for ways to be better to the environment. Highly appreciate you sharing these tips and talking about how important it is to contribute to saving the planet.

  9. Thank you Niomi, I'm so happy you made this video. Climate change is a real problem and it is happening right now, so we should all make an effort and fight it. As they say, there is no planet B. You are so great, much love from Spain!

  10. I love this video💖🌹 When it comes to removing makeup there is this makeup removing glove to buy I think in sephora or douglas, and it works just with water. You don't even have to use a cleanser and it does a good job even with waterproof mascara 😌💃

  11. these tips are all very sweet, but I feel like most of the people, who are just a bit conscious, are doing them already. Travelling by plane has the biggest impact on the environment, so maybe we could all work on that instead of travelling like 3 times a year by plane.

  12. Thank you for bringing attention to such an important issue, Niomi. I have begun to look at greatly reducing my plastic. I carry stainless steel straws in my bag so I don’t have to use plastic straws at restaurants. I also recently bought an eco friendly hair brush and comb instead of plastic ones.

  13. This video is a joke!It’s more like-it might give me some more likes as everyone is talking about being eco friendly,let me do the same-look at your collaboration with these ridiculous brands,constantly buying stuff etc.Maybe start to change this and then you can move on to talking about impact on environment.Or better leave it for people who knows their “stuff”.

  14. Thanks for this video! I've been really interested in this question recently, my boyfriend is vegetarian so I'm almost never eating meat anymore now that we live together, and I'm so interested in the zero waste lifestyle. I think I heard about it from Bonnie Wright (Ginny from Harry Potter) first, she has a great instagram. It's such an important issue – I mean, it's snowing in March!!

  15. Great video! Love the message. I try to reduce my impact on the environment by having a capsule wardrobe, trying to avoid fast fashion and also using a reusable coffee cup!

  16. I use a reusable bottle for my cold drinks and one for my coffee. I also worry about those plastic micro beads. The type that seem to be in our facial washes and shampoos/ shower/ bath washes etc… Our sea life end up eating it which damages them and or actually kills them… Blue Planet 🌎 showed this problem….

  17. Thankyou so much for using your platform to spread these kinds of messages – people with a large fan base like yourself are perfect for spreading the word and will hopefully help everyone make small changes xx

  18. This is such an amazing video! In our everyday lives we really forget to impliment stuff like this, something that I have recently changed is using shampoo and conditioner bars to save the plastic, as well as bringing my own bags to the grocery store not only for carrying but for putting the produce in rather than using several of the little plastic ones

  19. Thank you Niomi that was really informative. I do some of those tips already. I have missed watching your videos. I have been watching the perfume collection ones at the moment as I am looking for a new perfume and now I am more confused. What is your fav by the way?
