Zero waste melon and peach summer smoothie

It seems that everything we consume must come in all sorts of single-use plastic packaging or containers but little do we realise that we can reduce this waste to zero. I love my protein smoothies and lately I’ve been making sure to make them as eco-sustainable as possible. The biggest challenge was to avoid almond milk packaging and I managed to replace it by just adding 50g of roasted almonds, some honey and water.

Today I made a fresh summer smoothie which not only tastes great but also give me a good protein boost. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare, just put in all ingredients listed below in a blender and mix for 1 minute.

  • 2 teaspoons peanut butter (home-made)
  • 3 slices melon
  • 1 peach
  • 1 banana
  • Chia seeds
  • Oats
  • 5 ice cubes
  • Grated ginger
  • 50g almonds
  • Maple Syrup
  • Water

* All ingredients above were bought off the counter without any plastic packaging.

Juventus unveil third kit made from ocean plastic set to be worn by Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus and adidas, two clubs that innovation is synonymous with, continue that tradition in the 2018/19 season with the debut of the third kit. Combining modernity in look with cutting-edge technology, the third jersey is far more than something simply worn on the pitch. The uniform has various shades of gray with the iconic Juventus logo standing out in yellow born from the collaboration between adidas and Parley for the Oceans.

Made from a 100% recycled polyester interlock material that incorporates Ocean Plastic ® by Parley, the new third kit fuses performance technology with eco-innovative design.

“The new Juve third kit has eco-innovation and longevity at its very heart,” said adidas Designer Francesca Venturini. “Through our partnership with Parley for the Oceans we’ve been able to create this beautiful jersey made from Ocean Plastic ®. The dark grey shade with yellow accents makes it the perfect jersey to be worn either on pitch or on the streets.”

What is Parley for the Oceans?

Parley for the Oceans is the global network where creators, thinkers and leaders from the creative industries, brands, governments and environmental groups come together to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of the oceans and collaborate on projects that can end their destruction.
