[FR] Quand vous vous déplacez en ville, avez-vous le réflexe de réfléchir à faire votre trajet en transports en commun ? N'oubliez-pas que depuis 2009, la loi française oblige votre employeur à vous rembourser la moitié du prix d'un abonnement de transport en commun mensuel ou annuel ! Moi cela m'a convaincu, et depuis 90% de mes trajets se font maintenant en bus/métro/tramway !
Et si c'est un peu long, un bon livre fera passer le temps de manière agréable ;)

[ENG] When you go out in town, do you have the reflex to consider using public transport? Remember that since 2009, the french law says that your boss has to pay you back half the price of a monthly or yearly subscription to public transport. That convinced me and since then, 90% of my trips are by bus, subway or tramway!
And if the journey is too long, take a book and enjoy yourself!

The recent California Drought affected more than just humans – it also dried up underwater aquifers that provide water for species like the endangered Amargosa Vole, which is only found in the Mojave. These little critters are considered to be one of the most narrowly distributed subspecies of mammals! 💧🐾 Joshua, our Eco-Hero of the Week, knows how important water conservation is and is on a mission to educate others.

I like to watch the cosmic achievements of the humans, but I do not like to see how people manage to dirty the place where they plan to move in the future.

According to various estimates, there are currently from 600 to 700 thousand space debris objects on the Earth orbit. Space debris are dangerous not only for satellites, spacecrafts, but also for the ISS (International Space Station) itself. If debris happen to damage the lining of the space station, it can turn into a great tragedy.

We are not alone in the struggle for the environment. The nature itself helps to solve the problems of plastic pollution. 🇯🇵In 2016, in Japan, biologists took the soil for the research purpose around a PET - poly ethylene therephthalate processing plant, a type of plastic that does not decompose in the nature. They found a Ideonella sakaiensis 201-F6 bacteria that was fed on PET. This is a new evolved microorganism, which uses plastic as food. 🇬🇧In April 2018, British, American and Brazilian scientists studied the functioning of these microorganisms and experimenting, made a change in the active center of the protein. The new enzyme learned to digest polyethylene furandicarboxylate that beer bottles made of.

The science and the evolution do not stand still. Plastic bottles can serve as food for harmless bacteria, or as biofuel and chemical raw materials for people. Our job is to be more attentive to the nature and use the tools that it gives us. And also not to create excessive problems that the nature can no longer solve.

My heart feels happy! My second baby was just telling me that when offered a plastic toy gift in a restaurant yesterday, he said no thank you! When I asked him, he said he and his cousin had been talking about plastic going into ‘holes in the ground’ (landfill??) that goes in the sea and hurts all the animals. He then suggested we go to the beach with our goggles,and clean the sea 🥰 something is getting through! Love you little boy, you’re so sweet. #ecokids #greenkids #ecokidseducation #ecokidsplanet #ecoeducation #ecoeducational
DID YOU KNOW?
.
Rafflesia is the world’s largest, the heaviest, the rarest, and one of the stinkiest flowers in the world. It can grow to 1 meter wide and weighs about 10 kilograms.
.
The flower is a parasite, which attaches itself to a host plant, Tetrastigma vine, which grows only in undisturbed rainforests, to obtain water and nutrients.
.
Due to deforestation, Rafflesia is now facing the extinction issue just like the rest of the forest habitat.
.
Who knows where to find this flower? Share with us your answer in the comment!

The Chinese authorities temporarily close the Everest Base Camp. The reason is the accumulated garbage.

The entrance for tourists will be limited including the so-called “key zone” of the reserve: from 5200 meters above the sea level and higher. The exception will be made only for those who have permission to climb: around 300 people this year. At the same time they will be obliged to clean up all the garbage after themselves.

More than 40 000 people visit Everest every year. Last year 8.4 tons of garbage were collected in the “key zone” (the area total is 355 tons). The camp will be closed until the area is completely cleaned from the trash. The authorities have already created a working group of 200 people.

CONGRATULATIONS to Eco-Hero of the Week, Joshua, age 11 from California, USA, for his Water Conservation efforts! 💧
When Joshua heard about the water shortage in California where he lives, he decided to take action. After researching the subject, he created school presentations which he delivered to over five hundred children. These focus on interesting facts about water usage on the planet and ways to save it and include recommendations on what students, parents, and siblings can do. He explained why water conservation is important to all of us and also created flyers on water conservation tips and posted them in the school bathrooms. 💧
Joshua also designed “Meadows Water Hero” stickers to give to students who switched from plastic to reusable drinking water bottles. For his school library, he created an Earth reference material listing and reviewed twenty environmental books for students to read. 💧
Joshua has also spread awareness on water conservation with a booth presentation during the school Science Night. These activities were not easy to absorb into his school and athletic activities schedule, but he found it rewarding because he realized he is making a difference.💧
"I am just so happy and so glad that my work made a difference. That’s what is really important." THANK YOU JOSHUA! 💦

Ivory Coast in West Africa produces 40% of the world's total cocoa beans - about 600 thousand tons.

On cocoa plantations work 200-300 thousand children, 15 thousand of them are slaves. Children are kidnapped and forced to do hard work on the plantations. Global chocolate manufacturers close their eyes on this, because it is cheap and profitable. If plantations owners start to pay for the work adequately, the price of cocoa will increase by 10 times at least.

In 2012, Mars and Ferrero promised to cease to cooperate with plantations that use child slave labor only by 2020.

In order not to support slavery and not to sponsor it by buying another chocolate bar, I ask you to look for the Fair Trade markings on the packaging, it means that this product is produced without the use of child labor and the work was adequately paid.

ECO ACTIVITIES!
.
Children from our Eco-Education Center in Jombang, East Java, watched the “Gurun Hijau”, a documentary movie about the danger of deforestation in Indonesia, especially in Kalimantan and Sumatra where tropical rainforests are being cut down for palm oil plantation.
.
They also learned that if we keep on using palm oil for cooking, we are indirectly supporting the deforestation. In the end, we will no longer have a forest that protects the animals and human.

Whaling contributes to the global warming.

There are about 9 million tons of carbon in the body of a giant marine mammal. If a whale dies by its own death, the carcass sinks to the bottom of the ocean, where marine organisms eat it out. The gas does not enter the atmosphere and everyone lives happily ever after.

The extermination of whales leads to the fact that this gas breaks out from the carcass, turns into carbon dioxide, goes into the atmosphere and adds up to the global warming.

Whaling and shipping traffic have reduced the population of blue whales from 215 thousand heads to 10 thousand (this is the maximum), and humpback whales from 150 thousand to 30-60 thousand. The population of the remaining living whales carries as much carbon as contain 11 thousand square kilometers of forest.

How is it possible to live ecologically friendly, when such a lifestyle dictates to give up everything? I hear this statement very often from my acquaintances and friends.

If you look from the outside, it seems like this: coffee is not allowed, chocolate encourages slavery, beef is harmful, things from the mass market are evil. How to live? From the inside, everything seems different: non-smokers do not suffer from a ban on smoking, and I do not suffer from the rejection of plastic bags.

The ban is what is imposed on you from the outside, and environmental assistance is regulated only by your own wishes and desires. No one will ever force you to give up meat unless you come to it yourself.

You can start an eco-friendly lifestyle with what you are ready to change in your everyday routine. Perhaps it will be a purchase of reusable bags or a refillable coffee cup, or you can immediately start sorting out the waste. No need to rush to the barricades, because such ambitions may not last long enough. From the eternal prohibitions will appear bad mood and anger for everyone and everything around.

Now the livestock is responsible for 18% of the global emissions into the atmosphere. Scientists are trying to create artificial meat that would unload the livestock industry and help the environment.

Artificial meat is necessary for everyone! The first experiments were carried out by NASA in order to find a convenient and practical source of food for astronauts. The experiments on growing artificial meat are successful: in 2019 the company Memphis Meats is going to begin deliveries to high-end restaurants of meat balls and chicken sticks grown from animal cells. For ethical reasons, artificial meat has no competition: it is nutritional, tasty and no animals have suffered. Perfect!

But environmental problems are much deeper: industrial production of artificial meat will require much more energy and fossil fuels than traditional production, so the problem of livestock emissions can simply replace the problem of production emissions.

[FR] Aujourd’hui je vous propose un conseil beauté dont beaucoup ne peuvent plus se passer ! L’exfoliant à base de marc de café.
On fait du café tout les jours au bureau ou chez nous, et le marc va directement dans un bocal en verre. Il existe des recettes qui le mélangent avec de l’huile de noix de coco et des huiles essentielles mais notre type de peau nous permet de l’utiliser sans mélange pour le visage et le corps! Cependant toutes les peaux sont différentes donc faites un test dans un endroit discret pour voir la réaction de votre peau.

[ENG] Today is a beauty tip that many people cannot live without anymore! The basic coffee grounds exfoliant.
Coffee is made everyday here in this household and the leftover coffee grounds go straight into a glass jar. There are recipes out there that mix coconut oils and essential oils with the grinds but here we’ve found for our skin type we can use them unadulterated for the face and body! But everyone’s skin is going to be different so start off with a little patch test first.

Does the future belong to electric cars? No.

I really like the phrase that perfectly describes the whole problem of electric cars: "They will not make the planet cleaner, the emissions will be just somewhere far away". It is so true for now.

As you know, electric cars use electricity, but it is not always connected with renewable sources. 67.1% of the world electricity is the result of burning fossil hydrocarbons (coal, gas, oil). At power plants while transporting power through the electric lines as well as while charging from the outlet, about 60% of electricity is lost. It means that the efficiency of the entire system is 38-43%. As a result, an electric car burns about as many conventional units of coal or fuel oil as an internal combustion engine burns gasoline or diesel. But an electric car will be indeed better than a regular petrol car.

What I want to say is that it is not possible to replace the consumption of one product by another straight away. You cannot just switch from plastic to carton or from ordinary cars to electric ones. It will not solve environmental problems, but simply change their vector. You can save the planet only with the help of comprehensive efforts in all sectors: in order for electric cars to begin bringing benefits, it is necessary to optimize the operation of power plants first.

I am impressed and want to share it with you. Unique in Switzerland: 20 varieties of microgreens "alive" at the Fresh Food Family @thefreshfoodfamily . You get your microgreens uncut on a pad on which they still grow. Thus, you cut the microgreens just before the use. Fresh, tasty and healthy. You can easily keep the microgreens on the pad up to 5 days in the fridge.

A great start-up @thefreshfoodfamily 👏

The government of India has recently excluded dolphins from animals and assigned them the status of "non-human individuals." Thus, India has become the first country to recognize the presence of intelligence and self-awareness among dolphins. In this regard, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry of India has banned any performances using dolphins and has called to respect their special rights.

Recently I have come across a very interesting article (2011) with a loud headline “Are cars the new tobacco?” In the article cars and tobacco are compared as a lifestyle that some people lead, and how it affects their health and the health of other people.

As you know tobacco negatively affects the health of smokers, killing 5 million people every year; and passive smoking is harmful too, so even non-smokers are at risk. The situation is similar with cars. Large-scale motorization has brought many negative consequences, which also influence people who do not own personal vehicles.

The impact of cars is enormous:
❗️ Accidents. Every year 1.3 million people dead and 50 million injured in the world. And about half of the deaths happens with the most unprotected road users - pedestrians, cyclists and children.
❗️Low physical activity and overweight. By replacing car rides with any other active form of transportation can significantly improve one's health. Every additional hour spent in a car per day is associated with an increase in this probability of obesity by 6%.
❗️ Air pollution. About 1 million deaths in the world annually. They are mainly associated with the increased mortality from cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
❗️ Noise. It is reported that the noise from the cars can cause sleep disturbances, hypertension, high blood pressure and some mental illnesses.
❗Severance. Motorization destroys communication within districts, because everyone drives in his car with the windows closed. People who live in more pedestrian quarters have more social interactions, higher level of trust and social participation than people who live on busy roads.
❗️ Climate change. About 22% of global CO2 emissions are from cars.
❗️Health inequality. The mortality and the injury rate in road accidents are higher for the less protected groups of people - pedestrians.

While tobacco harms individual smokers (active and passive), cars have more externalities, which damages the entire community and even global sustainability.

Brazilian artist @amarildo_silva2, 23, saw a surplus of discarded tires littered around his city and set out to do something. He now collects abandoned tires and upcycles them into pet beds! He also donates part of the profits to animals in need. Amarildo is someone we would call a true Eco-Hero! 🐾@GreenMatters .

SEKOLAH BELANTARA.

A police report will be lodged in advance for any of our camp outing. During our recent outing in Damansara Damai, they dropped by and gave a safety talk to the children.

We are grateful for the support given by PDRM.

Whilst I am all for celebrating L💛VE in all forms, whether that be #love for #nature, sister, best friend or lover.

We also need to be mindful of the impact of our choices and #consumer decisions. Personally I don't subscribe to the whole 'buying flowers' notion.

Yes they are beautiful, but are you not killing something for a few days of beauty and convenience?... Something to think about anyway.

Instead I choose to purchase the whole plant or flower and witness the beauty of it every. single. day. Water it and watch it flourish, my favourite being these gorgeous sunflowers🌻🌻🌻 !! So I challenge you, how can you make your special day (or any day for that matter) more #sustainable and eco loving too?!? 💚🌻🌳🌸

We are going to be swimming in black pepper soon! 🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We will wait tell these start to turn red before harvesting them and then laying them in the sun to dry. Our black pepper packs a punch, a pinch will go a long way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out our upcoming courses in May- Agroforestry Skills and Plants as Medicine to learn more about this amazing plant and more. Visit our website, link in bio. #blackpepper #eatwhatyougrow #growforit #plantsasmedicine
IKEA in Britain is expanding further with its experiment of selling used furniture. Earlier, the residents of Edinburgh could return old furniture back to the store in exchange for a gift certificate. Now this opportunity have citizens of Glasgow.

The returned items are refinished by the company employees and re-sold. IKEA plans to extend this business model to other cities and countries. The Swedish retailer also launches a textile recycling scheme throughout the UK.

At the same time, the company @ikeaschweiz is starting a pilot project in Switzerland to rent out its furniture. At first these will be office and kitchen furniture. When the rental period comes to an end, consumers will be able to hand the items over for restoration and take something else in return.

One of our best incursions yet with my little friends at @petit_richmond creating the ultimate fairy garden table utilizing an old table that would had gone to landfill.
