Shrinking footprints. Walking lightly on the earth…
Tips to avoid blisters
PET introduces Carbon Bites to keep up the good work of shrinking our carbon impact in the Ecovillage. In the Rainbow Bridge and here there will be information bites: suggestions what to do, examples of what’s been done, reminders of what it takes to change one’s lifestyle. So that climate change doesn’t bite our heels because we walk too slowly. Everybody is welcome to share.
Send your text to Roger D to be put into the RBB (and here) under Carbon Bites.
Establishing new travel attitude
It is the time to look back at 2018, to reflect on your travel patterns and offset carbon emissions – especially from flights. As we have pointed out: the cost of flying is the price of the ticket plus the price of offsetting the carbon. How about making that your 2019 travel mantra?
Composting draws down carbon
Have you seen the new bins opposite Cornelia’s? Eveline’s composting initiative Growing on Food Waste is an excellent example of how carbon can be sequestered and turned into soil. If you don’t do it already get a bin and start composting in your garden. Or go together and share a bin. Composting means closing the loop and turning food left-overs and garden waste into fertile soil. In the resulting mixture the ingredients have cooked down and captured the inherent carbon, which then can be added to the topsoil.
