You could for example get yourself these #polkdot #net #producebags
They are great for food shopping as they replace the plastic bag that so many shops offer at the vegetable and bakery isle :)

With the Andes Mountains to the east and Volcano Guagua Pichincha to the west, #Quito, #Ecuador, sits in the Guayllabamba river basin, where houses and businesses line the surrounding hills. A city of confluence, the old buildings of the past mingle and dance with the new shiny buildings of the future. ****

My very favorite of our new (recyclable, compostable!) display boards. Why compost, you ask? Nature intended it. Climate change demands it. The economy needs it. Soils & crops love it. So really, why wouldn’t you? 🤷🏼‍♀️🙄👩🏼‍🌾♻️💚🌏🌾🌿🌱🐌 #wastenotwantnot #slowfoodnations #slowfooddenver #slowfoodusa #compostmore #noreasonnotto #sustainabledenver #sustainablecommunities #feedthesoil #starvethelandfill #savethefood @nrdc_org @massimobottura @slowfoodusa @pen.and.pine @nativeplantsmith @acres_wt @denverurbangardens

CheeseItYourself is committed to SDG1️⃣1️⃣. 75% of carbon emissions are generated in urban areas, where almost 60% of the world's population will live by 2030. Moreover, resources use is not efficiently managed in cities, generating tones of waste, including food waste. CheeseIt! enables the revaluation of a by-product such as aquafaba, creating value out of waste.♻️🏢

Palco da última performance do Projecto Eco antes das férias.

OMG, my mom is on TV! 😍 Surabaya, my home town, has received another award.

Congratulations to mom and the gangs, all the ibus, the bapaks and the krucils of the lovely Jambangan. It is soo good to see my neighbourhood to be profiled by national TV. Friends who have visited and stayed at my parent's house there, you should be proud too. I will send you a bill cause it is famous now 😜. And of course, congratulations to Surabaya! This city continues to be one of the few role models for citizen's participations and innovation on sustainable living practices in Indonesia.

This achievement doesn't come in an instant though. I remember when I was still in my young(ER) age, the city has started a huge campaign to encourage the citizen to be green and clean through collaboration with the media, corporations, and academia. Some competitions were effective to make the communities wanting to level up their game in the area of environmental stewardship. Not only for the money, but also the prestigious recognitions by the public. It brings the community closer together to achieve more.

Almost everyday, the biggest media outlet there, dedicated one page to tell stories of the innovation by the communities or just mere information of their environmental activities. Combined with contributions from private sectors for capacity building and funding some of the programs, and the universities in assisting the behavioural change of the citizens, the campaign finally showed some results even though it took decades.

But I reckon, the thing which make it works for some communities there is willingness (borderline obsession) to do what they feel right and to achieve more. They might not fully understand about the complicated aspects of climate change nor the confusing statistics about waste management but they JUST DO IT and are very receptive to the encouragement message to change. Innovation flourished, curiosity increased.

Thank you to everyone who popped along to our Produce Swap this morning. Some delicious homegrown and homemade goodies were snapped up. We look forward to seeing you next month!

Tomatoes are a main stay in our garden for a few reasons. They are easy to grow, we all love them, they tend to be prolific producers and you can grow way better varieties than you can find at the store! The only down side for a small space gardener is that you’ll have to spend some time managing their as they try to take over your space! #frontlawnfood #feedyourself #frontlawngarden #smallspacegardening #tomatoes #grownfromseed #heirloomtomatoes #the6ix

Our team in Honduras this week has been working on the foundation for the new Community Center in La Coroza.

Two reasons why this is vital for our community:
1. It is foundation for a physical place where the people can gather as their own community
2. It strengths the relational foundation between the community and Humanity and Hope

We’re all about that foundation doing double work to offer sustainability for our mission. —

Missing the DR and the lovely friends I made along the way ❤️ First collage is campesino life in #rioblanco in the mountains and #sustainablecommunities that has an ongoing #resistance against the Canadian mining companies devastating local villages, and second collage is #santodomingo and #bocachica seeing the more urban life. Just a small peek into the incredible journey myself and my classmates had in February. It was only a week but we made deep #connections that will last a lifetime. •
