Starting Monday with a long to do list. First up: drying some apple rings! We got a dehydrator this weekend to preserve fresh fruits and veggies while they are in season! That way, we’ll be able to use what we’ve preserved this winter when any “fresh” fruit/veg would have to be shipped here from Mexico or Chile or another faraway (warm) place. It’s a small, easy way to shop local, shop seasonal, eat healthy, and reduce your carbon footprint. Happy Monday, friends! #mondaymotivation
Trying to make small changes to reduce my carbon footprint. Shoutout to my 16 year old niece @victoriamejia.jpg for the positive influence in my life. Thanks for buying your own straws and starting a movement in our family. #nomoreplasticstraws#prouduncle#reducecarbonfootprint
Businesses nowadays often need large data centres, and these centres contribute to a large carbon footprint 👣. 🌱
We love how conscious @telus Is about sustaining the environment, and the work and funds they put towards REDUCING energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. One way they are doing that is by building energy efficient and environmentally friendly data centres. 🌱
We’ve posted a video about this on our Facebook page and you can click the link in our bio! 🌱
What are ways we can diminish our carbon footprint? Comment below with your ideas!

If you're like me, you've probably experienced your babies outgrowing their clothes before they get a chance to wear them... or when they have finally made it out of the laundry basket. Therefor most baby clothing donated or thrown away have barely been worn.
For this reason I am a huge supporter of the brand @glamupkids.se who take these rarely worn clothes in fantastic condition and give them a second home.
By doing so, you are not only protecting the environment, but you are saving money and finding unique pieces that are no longer available in stores.
Molly was lucky enough to win this gorgeous dress from #glamupkids which is a @newbielovers still with the tags on (and who doesn't love #newbielovers ). Go check them out, there is lots to love ❤️🌍♻️
PS not a sponsored post just a thank you and that I #love their concept 😍
This got my heart in my stomach this morning on my way to work... front page of the @metro.co.uk #globalwarming is #notfakenews , it’s a very real and present danger. To all those who doubt or debate, read @officialnaomiklein “This changes everything”, this is no longer an issue of the future or one that affects a small number of people we’ve never met in a far flung part of Africa. It’s here and now in the UK... ☀️ We ALL have a responsibility to see that the (near) future is not catastrophic, we cannot leave it to someone else. It feels overwhelming and terrifying, especially for those of us with children or grandchildren, generations who will suffer more than generations before. What does the future hold for them? How can I look my daughter in the eye and say “it will all be alright” when governments and corporations continue to question the science, mock the “eco warriors” and permit pollution (of all kinds) to continue in the name of “what is best for the people and the country”. I am no scientist and I am no expert but it seems to me that, if we continue as we are, there will be no habitable country to speak of... But what can we do? As individuals, how can we possibly fight and influence the misguided, nay moronic people that make decisions that impact our climate? The @metro.co.uk article states that what was agreed in the Paris Agreement may not be enough and yet we know that many countries, including the UK are set to miss their Paris targets. And where do we even start on #Trump and his utter disdain for the planet 🌍.... To end on a positive note - it is NEVER too late to act, it’s NEVER too late to take responsibility for our own impact on the environment. If you’re feeling helpless, start with the small things. Carbon emissions are generated in 3 key areas - food, travel and energy. How can we change our daily lives to reduce our emissions in these areas? How can we influence our governments? If you’ve ideas 💡 please do share! ...
Nature is not only beautiful, it also provides numerous ecosystem services. Each society has evolved to be well adapted to its environment. What if heat waves and droughts as we experience now in Europe become the norm? This is projected to happen by the end of the century if no serious efforts are done to reduce global carbon emission! Recurrence of such events can have devastating effects: shift of ecosystem types, crop losses, wildfires, disappearance of glaciers, water scarcity, increased mortality...Did you know that the severe heat wave of 2003 over Europe led to 70’000 heat related deaths?
I do believe that however small they are, individual actions to reduce emissions count for real, because one should change himself before expecting the entire society to change. I decided not to take any airplane in 2018 and spend my summer around home. And now I realize that they are so many amazing places to go and cool things to do that I’m surprised to have already visited half of the planet before knowing well what my region has to offer.
