The amazon... The lungs of the planet are under attack. . Did you know that the amazon rainforest is the largest tropical rainforest on the planet... so big the uk and Ireland could fit in it 17 times! . This incredible mass of trees produces 20% of the world’s oxygen. . And is home to 40,000 plant species, 1,300 bird species, 3,000 types of fish, 430 mammals and a whopping 2.5 million different insects. . Wildfires are common in the dry season, but are also deliberately set by farmers illegally deforesting land for cattle ranching. . There has been an increase in wildfires since January when the amazon was vowed to be cleared to make space for cattle farming and mining... thus ignoring concerns over deforestation. . So what can we do? Educate, educate yourself about what your supporting with your actions, what products are you buying, what food are you consuming? Is it encouraging this kind of behaviour? . Even though we may feel removed from such areas just remember... . We need to look after our home... we only have this one! . . 📷 by @anapintobean
New blog out with my favourite books for 2019. . What new books have you been reading? Looking for some more to add to my list...
#sustainableswap Monday’s are here. . Each week @the_lovely_catalyst and I will be sharing one sustainable swap. . Just one swap each week... rippling to a huge 52 swaps at the end of the year. We’re not asking you to change everything! No, not at all. The planet doesn’t need 5 perfect people... instead it needs 5000 people making small changes. So if anything catches your eye or resonates with you let us know... let’s keep this wave going. . So to make it easier for you and us we will go through each room in turn, starting with the bathroom first! . Coming to our humble toothbrush ... day in, day out helping us smile. . Over a billion toothbrushes end up in landfill and I’ve seen many washed up on beaches. Having to change your plastic toothbrush every 3 months means we go through quite a lot!! So simply swapping to a bamboo toothbrush can save that. The handle can be composted and the bristles cut off and recycled. . I remember when I was younger in India I would see locals snap off a twig from an Acacia tree and brush their teeth with that. I used to wonder why they didn’t just use a plastic toothbrush! I now know the merits behind their actions... . Sadly no Acacia tree nearby but I’ll have my bamboo brush as second best!
Ok you guys are amazing! . Thanks for taking the time out yesterday to fill out my poll and let me know what you’re looking for. . Turns out you all love what I already do! FAB!
