Waste is food. 🍊
Making a DIY cleaner out of the scraps from juice is as easy as it gets. On the blog there’s a piece about adopting nature’s principle of “waste is food”, along with 3 things you can create from juice scraps. These personal actions are important - especially when they add up and our big companies get the message that we’re no longer buying it. 🍊
The sun is shining at our Manor Marine facility in Portland today! ☀️
At our Manor Marine facility, we not only construct market-leading vessels, but also blade racks, cable carousels and bespoke engineering applications.
Our planet is warming and its’ cryosphere — Earth’s frozen regions — are melting.
The island of Greenland, population 56,000, is almost entirely covered in ice that is more than a mile thick in some areas.
That’s roughly 8 percent of all ice on Earth. But since 1998, it’s been melting, adding about 0.027 inches a year to global sea levels.
If the entire Greenland ice sheet were to melt, it would raise global sea levels by 20 feet.
You can help contribute to climate action by reducing your carbon footprint and living green.
What actions are you taking to live green?

Fast fashion is absolutely one of my favorite topics to discuss in the grand scheme of environmental activism. It involves protecting the environment, the need for a social justice, and a call of attention to resources. There are 53 seasons in the fast fashion industry. That’s new styles every single week. -
To avoid partaking in this destructive and degrading industry, opt for less clothing or thrift shop. Know where your clothes are coming from and who is making them.
Last week our new College Mentors visited their first classrooms along with our education staff and taught Grades 4 & 5 in Topsfield. They covered human impact on animals where the kids use critical thinking and learn to begin making changes to their daily lives to positively affect animals all over the world. They worked with 5th graders to dive into the global health and usage of soil inspiring healthy, sustainable choices.
We can't wait to see more of their classroom visits and memorable moments!
4 Steps Toward Business Sustainability... In its most basic sense, sustainability is a set of values that positively affects the way a business operates every day, both within the company and in the community at large.
1. Designate a Goal: Having a specific set of goals will help your company move toward sustainability faster and more efficiently.
2. Assign a Person (Or People): Every company needs a sustainability cheerleader.
3. Allocate Resources: Just as with any company goal, increasing your company’s sustainability will require both time and money.
4. Look Out for Improvements: Once you’ve mastered sustainable practices within your own team, consider other places sustainability can factor in. (Read the full article at bthechange.com)
Stop looking fo ways to “boost your motivation”. Success doesn’t come from having more motivation. Success comes from doing what you need to do even, and especially, when you don’t have the motivation to do it. It’s called GRIT.
Beyond proud of our very own @alma36m for FINALLY taking the time to visualize her highest self - and beginning to show up as her. This is her second week in a row consuming an adequate amount of sustenance to fuel her workouts. Protein is up. Consistently. Fiber is up. Consistently. Healthy fats have been added to the mix. Consistently.
If you feel inspired to use the new year to help you reset or change habits: great. And yet...the OLD YOU has survived every terrible day, every difficult situation, every awful circumstance and every heart-break you’ve ever felt. The OLD YOU is a FIGHTER, and that’s worth celebrating.
You are either fighting for your dreams, or fighting for your excuses. Choose wisely. #TribeStrength#Committed#Progress#BabySteps#Sustainability#NewYearNewHabits#TRIBE
𝚝𝚛𝚞𝚝𝚑: each day, a person who is vegan saves
💦1100 gallons of water
✨45 pounds of grain
🌳30 sq ft of forest

Sounds pretty convincing, right?
We’re on a mission to show that living plant based is the best thing for our planet 🌎
♡ Help us spread the message.
🌱Be kind, go vegan, and inspire others to also be vegan AF 👊
We love seeing photos of your #Ahimi orders from restaurants all over North America. If you haven't yet, be sure to tag us in your pics so we can share them on our feed and help other people find Ahimi goodness. According to @tis.replied.aunt.helga, the Avo Ahimi Roll from @bluesushisakegrill is “🔥🔥 💯 🔥🔥”
// CONSISTENCY // I’ve been extremely diligent about my practice for the past 2 months now and i can slowly see progress that I’m super proud of. This is the second time I tried this pose and I’m really ecstatic about how shitty it turned out 😆 Next improvement in this headstand: straighten out my legs and tip toe touch the ground one side to the other
Keeping the planet alive is no small task. It does get smaller if we all do our part though. ✨
I started thinking about sustainability a few years ago. Doing small things like limiting single-use plastics and following a plant based diet were easy for my daily lifestyle and it helped the Earth too! 🌎🌍🌏

Do you ever feel like when you are trying to make changes in your lifestyle, you find yourself coming up with 1 million different reasons why it’s too hard or too inconvenient? THIS IS ME!! I’ll find any excuse in the book to avoid doing things that I know are good for me in the long run
A trick that I’ve learned to overcome this is to avoid focusing on being perfect and changing all at once but to instead make little changes over time
When I first decided to reduce my meat consumption, any time I had a busy day or felt overwhelmed, I would revert to my old ways and just whip up a quick meat filled recipe. Why? Because it was what I knew and it was fast
Instead of beating myself up over it, I slowly started to realize that every plant based meal doesn’t have to be a picture perfect Pinterest worthy recipe. There is nothing wrong with boiling some water, plopping in some pasta and dousing it with a jar of marinara sauce because life gets in the way sometimes and that’s OKAY!!
Another go to quick meal that I relied on when I first transitioned was a simple grilled veggie sandwich on whole wheat toast with @legrandpowerofplants pesto. So yum. So easy. So fast.
Any other ideas for super quick weeknight meals?

En Choucair compartimos el interés por la educación de los futuros talentos TI y le apostamos a apoyar a las regiones en el cierre de las brechas digitales para la solución de retos que nos trae la 4ta. Revolución digital, por eso estuvimos presentes en la reunión de socialización "Sumemos esfuerzos por la educación de los jóvenes de Urabá ¡Cuando nos unimos, transformamos!" de la fundación Bancolombia, Coschoolcolombia y Rumbo Emprender. .
Agatha Christie believed that the best time to plan a book is while you’re doing the dishes.
Probably if she had a luffa sponge and a bamboo brush back then, Hercule Poirot would be a romance protagonist, not a detective 😛
There are some complains that luffa doesn’t produce much foam, but it doesn’t have to! We switched to these babies recently, and my only regret is that we didn’t do it earlier.
My next task is to find something to substitute Fairy. Not quite happy with baking soda! Suggestions? Xx

Man man, wat was het een topjaar voor de eigenaren van zonnepanelen op een gezamenlijk zonnedak! Meer dan 150.000 kWh werd opgewekt op de Alfa Postcoderoos (Zeeheldenbuurt) en het ZonneDok (Lewenborg). Dat was 10% meer dan in 2017. De totale opwek staat gelijk aan het verbruik van pak 'm beet 200.000 wasjes met de wasmachine.

♻️4 EASY WAYS TO REDUCE WASTE BY @davidclearyveganpt ♻️
What are your favourite ways to reduce waste? Let me know below ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
🚮As I'm sure everyone is aware of, we are generating an unsustainable amount of waste, especially plastics. Most of the plastic we use is single use and then discarded, but luckily there are ways to avoid or reduce it. Here are 4 easy ways.
🍵Use a refillable water bottle and coffee cup and bring it with you. No more plastic bottles or coffee cups. Will save you money too on water and often coffee shops provide discounts when you use a refillable coffee cup.🥛
🌰🥔🍆🥜Buy pasta, wholegrains, legumes from a bulk buy store if possible and bring your own containers to fill up, also avoid veg in plastic, instead buy loose and bring your own bags! 🥕🌽🥦🥑
Any more tips? Let me and everyone else know below ⬇️⬇️⬇️
