11/10/2013

Hello, hello, dears :) Today I wanna tell you a bit about recycling. I shall not bother you with things you already know or any of the common sense stuff usually found in articles on the subject. Instead, let`s talk how you could help the environment by recycling things you didn`t know could be recycled. Here is a list of some I bet you never thought of: Athletic shoes Nike takes care of that with their Reuse-A-Shoe program. Trash your old shoes into one of their bins and Nike will turn them…

BIOPESTICIDES

23/09/2013

Me again, dears :) As discussed here last week, pesticides are extremely harmful to human health and the environment. So shouldn`t we ask ourselves what`s the alternative? Biopesticides. They offer powerful tools to create a new generation of sustainable agriculture products – biopesticides are less toxic, affect only the target pest, and dissolve quickly. So, logical as always, I decided they definitely deserve an article and here we go. Source Biopesticides are pesticides derived from…

How much pesticides cost us

20/09/2013

Hello again! As promised, here we go further exploring the harmful effects pesticides have on our health and environment. Currently, there are more than 1,055 active ingredients registered as pesticides, which are put together to produce over 20,000 pesticide products that are being marketed in the United States. However, pesticide resistance is increasing. In the 1940s, U.S. farmers lost only 7% of their crops to pests. Since the 1980s, loss has increased to 13%, even though more pesticides are being…

26/07/2013

 Hello, dears The summer is finally here, the sky is blue and clear, etc., etc., poetry is definitely not my thing, but, you know, no one is perfect, myself at the very least My strength is logical thinking, as most of you have probably noticed; it doesn`t exactly take a college degree to notice how often I go with “It`s only logical”, does it now, hoho. That being said, it`s only logical to explore the subject of eco clothing today. Why? Well, in the last few post I told you about safe cosmetics,…

GREEN BABY* - Part Two

25/06/2013

Hey, guys, here is the continuation of last week`s article on how to make sure your baby grows up in a toxic free, eco-friendly environment. Bubble bath Those monstrous products contain even worse chemicals and honestly I can hardly think of something more useless.

So why not give it a toy or just put some eco-detergent in the bath water, it will make it bubbly, if you absolutely want it that…

GREEN BABY*

19/06/2013

When speaking about the future we often tend to forget a very simple fact. Tomorrow starts today and depends on – do not trust those self-help books, they tell you otherwise, but trust me, it`s just to make you buy them - what you did yesterday. In that context if you have a baby and care about not only his or her future, but also about the Planet`s, waste no time and start green-raising it. Research has proved the great importance of speaking to your little one, because babies do understand and…

Organic vs Conventional Farming

20/03/2013

Guest Blog Post By Josiff Penchev The main advantages of organic farming are obvious. First of all, it’s far more ecological. Second, it sustains the health of soil, ecosystems and people, and relies on biodiversity rather than synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, plant growth regulators, like hormones, livestock antibiotics and food additives, which have quite adverse effects. We all feel that most of the food we buy from the big supermarkets with our hard earned money is pure garbage. As for me,…
