After years of research, scientists have learned how to successfully breed pandas in captivity and 23 were born at the Chengdu Base last year. With an adult population estimated at more than 1,864 wild pandas and 500 captive pandas, they have been upgraded from endangered to threatened. In a region where bad environmental news is common, China is on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador.

Pandas are now known throughout the world, but they were hidden from the western world until the last century. Thanks to the work of scientists to help pandas breed in captivity and to habitat conservation, China is on its way to saving its most famous ambassador.

"Um bebê panda tira um cochilo em uma árvore da Base de Pandas Chengdu, na província de Sichuan, China. Pandas passam metade do dia comendo e dormem pelo menos algumas horas entre as refeições. Os filhotes aprendem a escalar árvores cedo para evitar predadores enquanto as mães buscam comida. Embora sua dieta não fornece muita energia, filhotes de panda são muito brincalhões e adoram explorar. Siga @AmiVitale para ver mais histórias ao redor do mundo. Repost @natgeo  Photo by @amivitale.

Panda cubs learn to climb trees early to avoid predators while their mothers forage for food. Although their diets do not provide them with much energy, baby pandas are playful and love to explore.

Good morning 😘 I don't have time to write a lot today, so here is just my breakfast: coconut vanilla oatmeal with mulberries and cacao nibs from @staywyld and as always fruit😊
Have a nice day😘

These are 5 pairs of old (athletic) shoes even our cobbler has deemed unrepairable 😅. Both hubby and I wear our shoes until they literally fall apart and cannot be repaired and worn anymore. So I was looking into ways to recycle shoes.
Turned out, there isn’t much #recycling going on when it comes to shoes. You can donate them, but if the shoes cannot be repaired anymore, they will just get disposed of. If they can still be worn, they are mostly shipped off to African, Asian, or Eastern European countries, where they destroy the local markets 💔! If you are lucky, they will get sold in charitable shops in your own country, but that is a gamble. So the best way to ensure your still wearable shoes (and clothes) will not destroy some other country's economy, the best way is to give them away in local Facebook groups or on Craigslist.
But what about these unrepairable shoes? I found out that @nike has this “reuse a shoe program” in North America and Europe. As they state on their German website, you can drop off up to 10 pairs of athletic shoes at “most Nike and Converse retail stores” . You know what? I tried several stores, but not a single store had heard of the program! So I called Nike customer service. And turned out, the program does exist, but they do not have ANY drop off locations in Germany AT ALL (despite what they say on their website!), because there isn’t a person in charge of this program here in Germany and so they do not tell their retailers about the program. The only way is to send your shoes as a parcel to Nike’s recycling facility in Belgium 😣 – at your own cost! Not to mention the environmental impact of individual parcels sent to Belgium.
So this is it: To support the recycling of shoes and so they will continue their program and start to actually enforce it (and only because I do live pretty close to the Belgium border anyway) I am sending these 5 pairs as a parcel to Belgium. BUT since there is a national border in between I get to pay 14.79 EUR (USD 15.71, GBP 12.61, CAD 20.52, AUD 20.26) for shipping.

✨LFW✨ I've still got my 'I'm VERY serious about clothes' face nailed. My favourite look from this season goes to @mulberryengland...After missing last season (because I was in the sea, obvz) its crazy this time to see how much the industry is changing,(and how much I'm still prepared to murder my feet in ridiculous shoes when I'm on a deadline to be in five different places at once.) Just look how thrilled the frow are to be there!? And what's the deal with no one clapping at the end. Too busy on their phones. Clap FFS! #lfwissues ✨🌙
