    Magical Sight& #x2728 ; Like will-o’-wisps on a humid summer night, male blue ghost fireflies illuminate the woods near Brevard, North Carolina. This beautiful image was made by digitally stitching together more than 300 30-second exposures spanning four hours. Did you know that fireflies are in danger of extinction because of human activities such as habitat loss, light pollution and pesticides. What can we do? Install only lights that comply with International Dark Sky Association standards; use outdoor lighting only when necessary, to minimize light pollution; keep small piles of branches and leaves (a good environment for larval fireflies) and let the
  • Shout Out to these two environmental activists Tiana Jacout and
    Shout Out to these two environmental activists: Tiana Jacout and Gail Bradbrook, who declared last Saturday as Extinction Rebellion Day- the day they did commit acts of civil disobedience in the hope of jolting governments round the world into stronger action. Gail Bradbrook wants the planet protected for her children and Tiana Jacout is happy to give up her freedom for standing up for the world we know is possible. The protesters/environmental activists blockaded the UK’s energy department in London. Their short-term aims are to cancel what they call “contradictory” projects they say will increase emissions in the UK and
  • Shout out to Romuald Hazoum who makes art from recycled
    Shout out to Romuald Hazoumé, who makes art from recycled materials that are prevalent in Nigeria and Benin, Africa. His materials of choice are fifty-liter plastic ‘bidon’, or jerrycan, a local staple for the illegal purchase of cheap gasoline from Nigeria to Benin. “I send back to the West that which belongs to them, which is to say, the refuse of consumer society that invades us every day.” Swipe left to see more of his work and a photo of him with the awesome Agnès B. Of ‘Agnès B’! Read more about him  @gagosian .com/exhibitions/2018/romuald-hazoume/  @plasticpollutes   #romualdhazoume 
  • A home for wild things I love the use these
    A home for wild things I love the use these recycled wood pallets into a multi storied home full of nooks and crannies and natural housing materials. It doesn’t guarantee you will attract your small local wild animals since they choose where they want to live but it looks very promising and fun if you have little ones at home. A great project to do together Source:  @nationaltrust_  .org.uk  #recycle   #woodpallets   #into   #ahome   #for   #wildanimals 
  • Happy Thanksgiving Week As our world often feels in turmoil
    Happy Thanksgiving Week As our world often feels in turmoil and the planet faces many challenges, I refocus as often as I can on what I am grateful for in my life. The list is long from big things (my loved ones and myself are healthy; the fires are out or almost out in California today) to appreciating that I have fresh clean water from my well and fresh clean air to breath outside. I don’t want to lose sight of nor forget to appreciate the goodness that is around me, including the hungry caterpillar that was grateful for this

He creates unique pieces that he designs in detail first on paper, then makes the parts individually in clay, and then assembles them, as if building a house.

    Did you know it’s America Recycle’s Day today?! I think we should have another day called What America doesn’t Recycle Day I don’t recycle my glass jars because I reuse them, as you can see from this photo. I don’t recycle rubber bands, because I save them in a...glass jar. I don’t recycle string, twine or ribbon and save them as well in a...glass jar. I won’t go on but there is so much that we can reuse and repurpose, especially...glass jars of all sizes and shapes  #what   #america   #doesn ’t  #recycle   #day 

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival

Welcome to the Almanac Newsletter, an e-quarterly in which each issue celebrates innovations in Sustainable and Innovative Designs, Game-Changers who are creating and inspiring positive change, Eco Films that entertain and enlighten, Artists and Authors who are inspired by nature, Plant Based Recipes, a monthly Organic Gardening Calendar, as well as empowering readers to become informed consumers, by turning their purchasing power into a powerful tool for change. Attention is given as well to a Group or Organization that endeavors to arrest, contain, or reverse environmental damage and preserve our natural world for future generations.

As the public becomes increasingly aware of global warming and the unhealthy repercussions of heedless consumption of environmentally harmful products, people are more and more choosing to commit to greener, healthier lifestyles. We are all learning how to make conscious choices that reduce our use of natural resources and ideally serve to protect and sustain them.

Welcome also to my book titled LOLA, Lots of Love Always, which is aimed at young women but is a good read for everyone. It shows how to live a sustainable lifestyle and make healthy choices that are good for you and the planet at large. You are welcome to read the LOLA Blog, which has been archived on my site.
