While these beautiful girls act shy for the camera, Momma is unlocking the fetching point she manages in Ghana’s village of Asuboi. A long-term investment, education, training, hard work and community ownership are all key components to establishing a sustainable water system. This community has done very well taking care of the fetching point. We give thanks for clean water. Happy Friday!

Recently, in Shetland times I read an article about a whale in Scalloway harbour who got suffocated by plastic. 😓It made me feel sick and from that day I made a decision to recycle and re-use all what I can.
〰️
I’ll be honest with you, living in London for 6 years I have never thought much about the environment and plastic pollution. Always on the move and in rush, I think I was too busy to stop and think about all  this. I was swallowed up by that “fast and disposable” life. 〰️
Now, as I moved to such a beautiful place with a wildlife on my doorstep, I try to make baby steps to sustainable living. 😌💜
〰️
What about you? Do you recycle plastic?

Fechamos a nossa Semana Temática de Educação Ambiental com um outro exemplo inspirador. Fundada em 2010 por um grupo de ambientalistas, educadores e profissionais da sustentabilidade, a @Sustentarte promove ações de Educação Ambiental e Sustentabilidade através da vivência e arte.
💚💚💚💚
A organização desenvolve projetos de Educação Ambiental continuada em escolas públicas e privadas desde a educação infantil até ensino médio. Através da arte e da compreensão do corpo, aborda-se temas que resgatam culturas e conectam com a natureza que somos.
💚💚💚💚
Permacultura, bioconstrução, bambu e bioestruturas, cultivo de hortas e mudas nativas, dinâmicas corporais, contação de histórias e cantigas são algumas das ferramentas que eles utilizam para a sensibilização.

A new law passed late last year in the US means from 2018, 20% of rooftop space on newly constructed buildings over 25,000 square feet must be covered by gardens or solar panels. Is this a law you'd like to see brought into Australia? Share your thoughts! .
You can learn more in the article titled 'Why it's becoming compulsory to join the green (roof) revolution' on the GRA website. Link in our profile. (IMAGE: Landscape Architecture Aotearoa)

A cada minuto, 1 milhão de garrafas de plástico são consumidas no mundo todo, e hoje há cerca de 1 tonelada de resíduos de plástico por habitante na Terra. Estes números são alarmantes, dado que o plástico não é biodegradável e que 80% dos resíduos de plástico não são reciclados. As consequências desse excesso de consumo de plástico são desastrosas para os oceanos, onde 8 milhões de toneladas de plásticos terminam a cada ano, matando 1 milhão de aves marinhas, centenas de milhares de mamíferos marinhos e inúmeras peixes. Portanto, é urgente agir.
Cada gesto conta... Conte-nos o que você está fazendo para reduzir o consumo de plástico descartável ?

Recently learned that my son's school is teaching their students about sustainability and they are currently talking about reusable products. How cool is that!

Meet Penelope the peacock! Penelope was constructed from bits and pieces deemed for the tip. Thanks to some great imagination and welding skills Penelope sits proudly in the garden. An old gas bottle, tap, blades, metal rods, wood splitter and pipe is all it took! #gardensculpture #gardenart #reuse #recycledart #recycle #smallfootprint #helpingourplanet #sustainability #sustainableliving #creativegardening #ilovegardening #ilovemygarden

how to start your day ✅ a couple of drops of this bad boy on the floor of the shower to uplift and bring you energy, and also to clear your sinuses 👃and remind you to BREATHE! 
I also recommend lavender at night for relaxation vibes 😴

After some struggles and some major pest issues the overwintered plants are making a comeback!
.
At least if nothing is growing outside something is alive inside!  These are ‘Alma’ paprika pepper plants that have been slammed by spider mites, aphids, (you can still see some of those annoying guys on one of the bottom leafs - I took care of those guys right after I noticed that in the photo) and our ultra dry air.  I can’t wait until it’s warmer outside and the natural predators in the ecosystem can take care of this for me!

I recently got hip and stumbled upon @arborteas and there is so much to love about this company. They offer fair trade + organic teas sourced from sustainable farms, stainless steel tins sans BPA and compostable packaging. They strive to be sustainable by seeking out organic + biodynamic farms, low water intensive crops and they are also part of carbon fund, an initiative to offset carbon emissions. The only downside to my purchase was that my steel containers came wrapped in a bit of plastic, but I’ll pop them in the bag bin at my grocery. Everything else was completely plastic free, and my package came with step by step instructions for composting the packaging AND a very cute handwritten thank you note. @arborteas you’ve got my ❤️ #zerowaste #ecofriendly #gogreen #sustainability #fairtrade #organic #tea #carbonfund #tea #compost #lesswaste #nowaste #plasticfree #packagefree #biodynamic #howtosavetheworldpodcast #arborteas
