#carbonfootprint

Läser DN Kultur och blir påmind om slitningen mellan upptäckarlusta och klimatångest. Hur vi plastbantar, pantar och återvinner samtidigt som vi flyger som aldrig förr, både inrikes och globalt. Hur hanterar ni det? Påverkar klimathotet ert resande?

Ok. Let's get real. I got myself a take-away coffee (high carbon-impact)...but I took the train instead of the car (low carbon-impact). *
These are the choices we can consciously make every moment of the day, when we are aware of the impact of our life-style.
*
Are you aware of your carbon footprint? Are you aligned with your values? It's so easy to look up and start aligning yourself with, if there is a willingness. Let love be the way.
*
Love yourself now AND cherish your future. It can be done, with grace and balance.

For years I have always loved #photos that remind me of my stature within this world. Being around these #redwoods always remind me of how small I am and how truly short our menial existance is in the larger picture of this #planet and of our #solarsystem. These trees have survived from the times of shortly after #humans became civilized by making settlements and longer term #camps. All the way through the industrial revolution, and into what we know as modern society. These things have been moving towards the sun since we piercieve the sun and fire as dieties and not a small combusting gaseous star to give our little blue planet a chance to sustain organic life forms. Unfortunately we treat this little plot of ours within the vast cosmos like it's second rate garbage. As if its replaceable. Try to be more aware of your #carbonfootprint . Every bit of effort counts.

Let’s get these growing! I grew these chillies last year from a packet of seeds, so I saved some to regrow again this year. Please can everyone cross their fingers!! 🙈🌱♻️🤞🏻🌶️

Most of us consume way more resources than necessary. Be it showering for too long, turning on the lights in the daytime, always driving in cars, and so much more. Our ecological footprings exceed our biocapacity by gazillions of feet. In fact, one Earth may noy be able to support us for long

This oat milk is so lovely. I'm converted. The other half isn't too keen on it but I'm sure I can work on him. This and soya milk are my swaps from cows milk. I'm going to try and make my own oat milk at some point. Just need a glass bottle and some refined sugar.

Watching the premiere of Blue Planet II last night was breathtaking! How awesome our planet is! Not only was the cinematography mind blowing but it was inspiring. So many talented scientists and artists coming together to educate the world. 💕 The scenery was truly magical but having traveled quiet a bit myself I couldn’t help wondering just how much more incredible it was in real life. The example I thought of right away was Mount Katahdin in Maine. Photos looks amazing but to be there was fascinating. There are countless things a photo can’t transfer. Blue planet made me want to travel more but it also broke my heart because it is in-fact a double edged sword. Increased travel means a higher carbon footprint than I already have and traveling to these remote locations puts the animals and plants that live there at risk. They are directly effected by disturbances from tourists taking selfies, trampling of sensitive habitat and the introduction of invasive pests or disease that could destroy the balance of the ecosystem in a few devastating years. Indirectly, all of the earth is threatened by climate change because we as humans NEED nail salons and plastic toys for our children. At least I can take comfort in knowing my Katahdin example is my lowest carbon footprint trip because I walked there. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #katahdin #knifesedge #mountain #maine #hiking #hikingadventures #at #appalachiantrail #whiteblaze #landscape #nature #view #summit #mountkatahdin #blueplanet #naturephotography #mega #conservation #science #carbonfootprint #wanderlust #travel #travelphotography #getoutside

BRUNCH // It's sunday and in this house that means brunch!😋 My fav to put on the brunch table is buckwheat pancakes (served with lots of fresh fruit, berries and a drizzle of syrup, or almond butter and chia-strawberry jam👌🏻). I stick to the recipe of @greenbonanza (a norwegian food blogger who makes the most delicious vegan food😋) as it simply can't go wrong. If you don't understand norwegian, I've translated a simple version of it below:
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••Mix 2 tbsp flax seeds with 4-6 tbsp water (let sit min 10 min or make it the night before) until it looks like a wet jelly. Mix 2 dL (about 1 cup) buckwheat flour with a sprinkle of vanilla powder, 2 tbsp syrup, 2 dL (1 cup) plant milk and 1 tsp baking powder. Mash a large, ripe banana and mix into the batter with your flax seed-"jelly". Cook in coconut oil in a medium-hot pan (about 3-4 tbsp/ a small ladle of batter is enough for each pancake) until golden and bubbly, flip and repeat. Serve warm with syrup, berries or anything you fancy! Happy sunday!🙏🏼😋🐰✨🥞☕️🍏🍴🌍🍊🍇🍓🌿

‘Aate daal ka bhaav pata chalna’
Indian clichés are really vibing with me.
I’m having fun making my own house rules and doing my own thang.
For instance I’m trying to reduce my plastic consumption and carry my own bags for grocery and house shopping.
Exchanged visiting card with the vegetable vendor today. #bawse .

🌙✨In the last couple of years I’ve finally developed a love for second hand things (especially a good wooly jumper!). The energy, resources, time and labour that goes into production of pretty much any new item is phenomenal, so when you find something that’s perfect and costs the Earth no extra strain, it’s grouse!
This article states that household consumption (not your car kms or long showers) uses up at least 60% of our resources; think clothing, beef and imports. How about those cute Kmart book holders shipped all the way from China?.. Once you take a good look at consumerism, you realise how f*cked up our habits have become. Is 2018 your time to break the habit? 🌏

Feeling disgusted at #ausopen. Apparently we have to resort to imported water from China. Are Aussie springs all dried up? #carbonfootprint

Completely organic and biodegrable plates from Banana trunk. Even without the sidings made in 5 minutes.
Who has used these before?? 😍😎 Perfect for a picnic outing or family party at the beach instead of plastified paper plates.
Just rinse and compost them after the party behind your house.

#ReduceResolution Day TWENTY: Skip the Stuff You Don’t Need! And this is no shame to target. I love target. I think I picked target because even I’m guilty of making a beeline to the dollar section and browsing though. But the more self control you have when faced with junk you don’t need but want for some reason, the better you are to our planet. Really consider that item you’re about to buy. Do I need it? How was it manufactured? How long will it be on this planet after I’m gone?

@Regranned from @cleanearthfuture - A startup in India is capturing the black particles that float in air pollution and turning them into ink.

Anirudh Sharma was at a conference in India when he noticed black particles accumulating on his white shirt. The specks settling on him were from pollution in the surrounding air.

Byproducts from burning fossil fuels such as gasoline and coal are causing health problems and climate effects around the world, especially in India’s growing cities. In that moment a few years ago, though, Sharma saw the pollution particles as something simpler: A coloring agent.

He went back to MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he was a graduate student focused on augmented reality, and began working on an idea to turn carbon pollution into ink. Using candle soot to start, he came up with a prototype. After finishing his master’s degree, he went back to India and in 2016 co-founded a collaborative called Graviky Labs to continue working on Air-Ink and other ideas.

They developed a device that can be fitted onto the exhaust pipe of a car or portable generator and collected the soot that forms from burning diesel fuel. By mixing the fine black powder with solvents, they produced ink that then went into bottles and markers.

Kaushik says Air-Ink has a dual benefit: “It’s not just that we’re recycling that material into inks. What we are also doing is replacing the carbon black that otherwise would have been used to make black inks.” Manufacturers typically use the soot known as carbon black in rubber, ink, paints, and carbon paper.

After posting their endeavor on Kickstarter earlier this year, the team brought in $41,000—nearly three times the donations they sought to start producing Air-Ink in larger quantities. Through a sponsorship from a beer company, they’d already begun distributing the ink to artists, who created public pieces in London, Singapore, and other cities.

Green Sea Turtles are in trouble 🐢
Did you know? sex of Green Sea Turtles is determined by the temperature of the egg? If the eggs are 88F/31C or above, the offspring will be female. If the eggs are around 82F/27C, the offspring will be male. If the eggs range in temp from 82-88F/27-31C the offspring will be a mix of males and females.

With global temperatures rising faster than normal, researchers have found that Green Sea Turtle populations ratios are drastically changing, with hundreds more females per males born in each clutch. This is bad news for the already endangered species, as an imbalance this drastic will make it much harder for females to find males and mate.

How you can help:
* Reduce your carbon footprint- turn off PowerPoints when not in use, support companies who actively aim to reduce their emissions, switch to solar power, buy locally produced food.
* Support not-for-profits working to save and treat wildlife from fishing and shark nets, as well as other injuries and releasing them back into the wild. 📷  @craigparryphotography 💚
