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'll be information bites: suggestions what to do, examples of what’s been done, reminders of what it takes to change one’s lifestyle.

Send your text [email protected] to be put into the RBB (and here) under Carbon Bites.

If you don’t do it already get a bin and start composting in your garden. Or go together and share a bin. […]
