  • Nautilus Shells Did you know that the nautilus is considered
    Nautilus Shells Did you know that the nautilus is considered to be a “living fossil,” having survived unchanged for millions of years. (Amazing!) They live in the deep slopes of coral reefs in the Indo-Pacific, are scavengers and opportunistic predators, eating molts of lobsters, hermit crabs and carrion of any kind. Nautiluses and all seashells are extremely vulnerable to pollution and ocean acidification caused by carbon pollution released by burning fossil fuels. Increased ocean acidification=less shells. Support renewable energy, from wind to solar energy, whenever possible because they are the best options we have to stopping or/and slowing global warming.

    Have you made delicious, nutritious and easy-to-make Stinging Nettle Soup yet? I’m having some for dinner this evening Did you know that stinging nettles contain several vitamins, minerals, calcium and more fantastic health benefits. Who knew that such a plant that has been disparaged by many (including me from many uncomfortable encounters when I was little!) and considered a weed, is brilliant for our health. I posted the recipe in the Summer Issue on my site, along with a post about nettles health benefits. I also just learned something new today about nettles and how they benefit the vegetable garden,

    Shout out to forensic ornithologist Pepper Trail, featured here in his Ashland, Oregon-based lab. He identifies the victims of wildlife crime- if the victim is a bird. The position is so rare that he’s one of just two people in the United States to hold it. Trail has to be objective in the roughly 100 avian crime cases he handles a year, though sometimes he gets emotional. Knowing an animal has “died horribly” is not easy to accept, but he gets satisfaction when he is able to draw attention to an issue, like the chuparosas- dried hummingbirds marketed as love

    Love Yvon Chouinard Love him for always standing up for the environment and taking action. In this case, he is suing the president in a bid to protect Bears Ears National Monument, because ofplans to sharply reduce the size of two national monuments in Utah. Bears Ears would be slashed in size by 85 percent, and potentially opening up protected areas to drilling and mining. Bears Ears is sacred land to tribal groups and home to Hopi and Navajo ruins and petroglyphs carved into rock walls.

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.
