Or to justify exploiting them in any way, in the many ways humans exploit animals today. Make the connection ✨ Animals are here with us, not for us ❤️

Living a low waste lifestyle does not mean you have to miss out on the things you enjoy. It just means you do things differently and sometimes have to think ahead/be prepared.
We love this low waste takeaway by @simpleishliving

Let’s talk toys. An essential for little ones that have grown to create a big environmental impact. Enter @letoyvantoys!
• • •
Wooden toys are not only beneficial for the environment, but also for the children who experience them. They offer:
Montessori-style learning for cognitive development
Multiple learning dimensions with different weights, shapes, sizes and textures
Enjoyment for many playtimes to come with their sustainable, tactile materials
@letoyvantoys invest a great deal of time and energy to ensure all of their toys are developed with layers of discovery, so that they become a real investment in play for generations to come.
• • •
Being carbon footprint conscious @letoyvantoys works hard to make sure:
• Their wood only comes from sustainable forests
• They support local farmers and their communities
• They pledge to replant and replace the wood that becomes their great toys!
Always working towards more improvement, Le Toy Van’s wooden toys and most packaging have been biodegradable since 1995 and they aim to be 100% plastic free by 2021. We love supporting brands that produce sustainable products and are actively working on becoming even more sustainable. It's important we show support to eh brands that are truly trying to make a difference.

Min skønne veninde, @sofiehenneberg, har foræret mig den babynest hendes lille datter har ligget i 😍 Fordi vi har allergi i familien ville jeg gerne have nye madrasser, men hvad gør man så med sådan en lækker arvet sag? Man piller madrassen ud, vasker resten af nest'en på 60 grader og lægger en ny skummadras-rest i, som ens mor havde liggende 👍 Syningen er meget mangelfuld, men skidtet virker 👌

Some many shapes, so many colours and so many questions I didn’t answers to. My 3 year old wasn’t really impressed by my biology knowledge.😫
You can now find deliciously healthy smoothies and juices from @simonsaysjuice at 169 Darlinghurst. These beauties are delivered by bike and come in glass jars so they can be reused, what's not to love?
As someone who gets anxiety sweats all the time, the only deodorant I could find that worked before was a plastic roll on full of chemicals.
I found this natural organic plastic free deodorant made by @thegreenwomanuk in @re._source and so far it's worked really well.
I don't understand gendered products. It just said it deters excess perspiration. Ignore binary labels, use what works for you. 🙂
We are kicking our first post off with everyone’s favourite... Lavender or Lavendula.
Currently there is over 45 species of Lavender.
Lavender is the most versatile oil! Lavender is best known for it’s sedative effects, meaning it’s great for anxiety, nervousness and restlessness.
What you might not know is Lavender has amazing antiseptic properties meaning it’s perfect for coughs, colds, wound care, bites, burns and headaches!
Lavender is definitely a must have oil! 📷 Pinterest
2017 was declared the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development with efforts taken to mirror the three pillars of sustainable development, which are economic, social, and environmental.⠀
There has been a misconception in the past that luxury can not equal green, but in recent years, there has been a shift in luxury & boutique hotels to go green! @tajhotels is a primary example of luxury meeting sustainability. To stay away from excessive plastic use, Taj hotels have their own bottling plant & use straws made from bamboo. ⠀
Thailand has also jumped on board by putting sustainability at the forefront. In Chiang Mai, many supermarkets have started to wrap their vegetables in banana leaves instead of plastic & then fastened with bamboo pieces. By using banana leaves the amount of single-use plastic has drastically decreased.⠀
We stand behind sustainable travel & hope to education others on the importance of doing your part to go green! 🌿♻️⠀

Il Pioppo bianco e la sua capacità di assorbire ed accumulare plastica
I ftalati sono micro-inquinanti di grande importanza a causa della loro pericolosità per l'ecosistema ed il corpo umano. Grazie alle sue capacità di assorbimento e di accumulo di inquinanti organici, il populus alba L. “clone villafranca” potrebbe essere un buon candidato per ridurre gli impatti che derivano dalla persistenza di questi composti nell’ambiente. Hanno studiato la risposta della pianta e di come assorbe il dioctyl-ftalato (d4-DOP) coltivando i pioppi in idroponica.
Trattamento: - 21 giorni 0 μg L-1 di d4-DOP;
- 21 giorni 40 μg L-1 di d4-DOP;
- 21 giorni 400 μg L-1 di d4-DOP;
Le piante trattate a 400 μg L-1 dopo 21 giorni hanno mostrato un aumento del peso secco delle radici del 29% a discapito della parte area la quale ha subito una diminuzione del peso secco dell’8% rispetto al controllo. Si ipotizza che lo sviluppo delle radici potrebbe essere causato dall’incremento dell’assorbimento del magnesio.
Altre analisi hanno dimostrato che l’assorbimento e l’accumulo nelle radici di d4-DOP parte dal primo giorno sebbene la volatilizzazione del d4-DOP sia stata osservata nella soluzione nutritiva. Lo zinco ed il d4-DOP hanno interazioni chimiche nelle radici quando si hanno concentrazioni elevate di d4-DOP, tutto ciò senza limitare la concentrazione di zinco nelle radici.
I risultati confermano quindi l’elevata tolleranza del clone “Villafranca” alle sostanze xenobiotiche (sostanze estranee all’ambiente) e supportano la capacità del pioppo di assorbire ed accumulare i ftalati nelle radici.

To reduct my plastic use, carbon footprint and waste no more wipes in the house, bought a range to try on myself and Elise’s bottom 😂

Gravity Storage: Innovative Solution To Increase The Reliability Of Solar Energy.
At the forefront of technological innovation, there is a limit to the amount of electricity that can be delivered to the grid from intermittent renewable energy sources.
Renewable energies such as solar and off/onshore wind are now widely affordable. However, production unpredictability and intermittency from reliance on factors such as wind and sunlight mean that renewables have not been able to fully replace fossil fuel generation.
Today, we want to present an innovative solution for this challenge which renewable energies have faced with it for a long period of time, that is, Gravity Storage.
Based on the principles that underpin traditional gravity-based pumped hydro plants, the new solution combines conventional physics fundamentals of potential and kinetic energy with a proprietary, cloud-based software platform to operate a newly developed six-arm crane. The crane operation is fully automated and moves massive concrete bricks that provide the basis for the efficient storage and discharge of electricity.
The system specifications include:
*35-MWh nominal energy capacity and 4-MW peak power; can be modulated as required.
*Millisecond response ramp time with 100% full power achieved in 2.9 seconds, supporting critical Ancillary Services.
*Roundtrip efficiency of ~90%; zero storage degradation over time with no energy loss; >30 year lifetime with unlimited cycles.
