Eco Living Weekly Digest #5
Eco Living Weekly celebrates our collective efforts to live more harmoniously on Mother Earth, and walks hand-in-hand each week with @ecotrain's other curation, Eco Village News. It's a "best of" from posts on the steem blockchain this past week which have used the #ecotrain tag.
What kind of content will get you curated here? Practical, thoughtful, creative and personal posts about literally Making the World a Better Place. From recycling, art, natural health and organic-permaculture to eco-travel, creating change, spirituality, art-poetry-music, natural food preparation and growing-storing-preserving your food and natural medicine. Please attribute quoted material and images which aren't your own, and be thoughtful. You need to use the #ecotrain tag to be considered for an upvote. And please make at least part of your post in the English language - we MANUALLY curate so we need to be able to understand the gist of your post.
We DON'T require you to delegate to @ecotrain, but we'd ask you to please consider it. You can take it back at any time, no questions or stress. Delegation is nothing more than a LOAN of your SP so we can give YOU juicier upvotes. It's a no brainer, really. We also don't REQUIRE you to upvote or support others (all too school-marmy for us!) but, again, we'd ask you to simply give to others what you' like to receive, which is a generous upvote and a thoughtful comment.
MUCH APPRECIATION for the wonderful posts this week.
Please: read, upvote, comment, resteem the posts we've selected for you. And start writing YOUR next @ecotrain post.
Alternatives to plastic drinking straws are actually NOT easy to find in many parts of the world. @anggreklestari shares her pleasure at receiving her mail-ordered stainless steel straws, and making a small daily change to reduce waste and help protect Mother Earth.
Alternatives to plastic which support our bee keepers? Yes please! @koto-art shares about the new beeswax wraps for household use, and how they can really make an impact in our day to day.
Repurposing plastic bottles to grow seeds and nourish young trees? Great idea on both counts. @thegreens are doing great things in West Africa with reducing plastic pollution and educating young people.
The dislocation of a migrant soul dreaming of the herbs of an ancestral land. @riverflows dreams of plucking wild the herbs she must carefully cultivate while she battles heat and bushfires in her migrant home.
Consciously moving from upset and wanting to scream, to grounding, Mother Earth, fire pits, flowing streams and the CHOICE to make space for ceremony, connection and release. @freemotherearth shares the choice she made to reconnect with Mother Earth during a deeply frustrating time, and what she created in that place. Smoke and cider? Always helps.
3D printed hemp houses. Wow. @andrewfleming shows us what's emerging in the alternative housing arena and reminding us, again, that our homes CAN be sustainable, affordable and not damage Mother Earth in the process. Indeed, hemp sequesters massive amounts of carbon and therefore growing more of it for housing benefits us all.
Knowing how to clean water so it's drinkable using moringa seeds> @wongbraling explains this important technique. Clean drinking water is not readily available to many people on planet Earth; enabling then to use an abundant, natural resource to clean otherwise undrinkable water is a really important piece of knowledge. This is one for the Prepper scrapbook.
Sustainable art made from natural materials. @dede99 shares with us an incredible sculpture made entirely from woven bamboo.
You still have a few days to get your Paleo on and join @ecotrain's Question of The Week Cooking Challenge. Prepare a Paleo dish and share it.
You have until November 27th. Don't forget to link the url of your entry post in the comments of the Challenge post ^^ and to use the #ecotrain tag.
