  • Shout Out to Gary and Matthew Moretti of Bangs Islands
    Shout Out to Gary and Matthew Moretti of Bangs Islands Mussels, Portland, ME!

Did you know that mussels are the rare crop than do more good than harm. Mussels are filter feeders, which means they extract nutrients from the water and, in the process, improve its quality. Father and son Moretti insist on sustainability at every step: they eschew fertilizers, use reusable ropes rather than disposable mesh socks, and fuel their boats

    Parkipelago Reading a piece in this past weekends FT titled “The new land grab,” made me think of the story I posted in the Fall Issue about Parkipelago in Copenhagen, a more modest project aimed at creating public spaces in the city. A whole different world... is the former story I referred to, which is about glitz, artificial beaches and profit hungry developers, working on building 300 manmade islands, off the coastline, in Dubai...In case you are interested in reading it, I’ll attach the article to this post on my Facebook page @ Priscillawoolworth.com  #parkipelago   #copenhagen

    Shout Out to Boyan Slat! He deployed this past Saturday in San Francisco a 2,000-foot long floating boom which is now being towed out to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where it will collect trash between California and Hawaii Boyan Slat is the founder of The Ocean Cleanup and innovator behind the trash collecting system. The buoyant, U-shaped barrier made of plastic and with a tapered 10-foot deep screen, is intended to act like a coastline, trapping some of the 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic that scientists estimate are swirling in that gyre but allowing marine life to safely swim

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.
