New York City, New York now the newest and biggest city to join in the law suit against Big Oil. They've known for decades they were causing climate change and need to pay. Go on Greenpeace.org to see if your city is joined in the fight ! #greenpeace#climatechange#resist#newyork#savetheplanet
5 billion plastic caps from plastic bottles are released to the environment every year in California alone. Plastic caps litter streets, parks, inland waterways, beaches, and oceans, and harm wildlife who mistake them for food. California Assembly Bill 319 would require that all single-use plastic bottles sold in California have the cap connected to the bottle. Connecting the cap to the bottle will allow the cap and bottle to be recycled together, instead of contributing to clean-up costs, and harming wildlife and our environment. If you live in California, please take action using the link in our bio and urge support of AB 319. If you're outside of California, tell us, do you think connecting caps to the bottle should be industry standard? This photo shows a dead albatross that had ingested plastic, including plastic caps.

No-bake oat cashew cookies with peanut butter and goji jam filling by @panaceas_pantry 💗
1 cup raw cashews, ground into a rough flour
3/4 cup rolled oats, ground into a flour
2/3 cup almonds, ground into a flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 Tbsp maca root powder
Good pinch quality salt
3/4 cup rice malt syrup
1/2 cup coconut butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla extract .
1. Add the top 6 ingredients to a food processor and pulse until very well combined. Add remaining ingredients and pulse to combine. The mixture should hold together like a traditional cookie dough.
2. Turn dough into a floured board, and roll out to your desired thickness (I did roughly 2cm). Use a cookie cutter to cut out cookie shapes, and place onto a lined baking tray. Continue to roll out the left over dough and cut more cookies until you’ve used up all the dough.
3. Set cookies in the freezer, for at least 2 hours.
To make the chocolate
200 grams vegan chocolate
1. Break chocolate into small pieces, and set in heat proof bowl. Melt over a just simmering pan of hot water. Set aside.
2. Remove cookies, and dip each cookie into the chocolate, setting back onto the lined tray. Once all cookies are dipped, set again in the freezer.
To make the jam
2 cups raspberries
1 Tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 cup goji berries (soaked in warm water for 30 mins then drained)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1. Add all ingredients to a heavy based saucepan and cook over a low heat for 10 mins, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, set aside to cook completely before assembling cookies.
Finally, sandwich cookies cookies together with the goji jam and natural peanut butter. **If you don’t know how to soften coconut butter, simply immerse the jar in hot water until softened. #bestofvegan

This is my kitty, Dukki 🐥 in case you never met her before. ☺️😉 She looks like the most cuddly creature but really she is not!😂 She likes her space.👽But that’s ok, so do I. So even from a distant I still love her. My little fur child. She is 11 years old! Can’t even believe it, we got her when I was 12!😯 So there is some fun facts about my cat.🐱
Nunca debería subestimarse el trabajo de pequeños empresarios agricultores. Es una increíble labor que poco a poco intenta abrirse paso entre la industria abusiva de hoy en día y el uso de sustancias tan dañinas como abonos y pesticidas artificiales para el planeta, además de su obtención dudosamente legal.
Aunque nos alimentemos de plantas y productos vegetales, quienes modificamos nuestra alimentación de manera ética debemos también ser conscientes de esta realidad. Por ello, siempre recomiendo invertir un poco más en productos ecológicos. Y en lugar de adquirir algunas cosas en supermercados, hacerlo en fruterías, en establecimientos pequeños donde consigan productos locales, mucho más ecológicos y beneficiosos para el medio ambiente.
¡Veganísticas noches! Mañana hablaré de ello en un pequeño vídeo. 🌱

Throughout my day I have noticed that the number 17 has been sending me messages. I also enjoyed a lovely “Aloha Bowl” for lunch to and it was amazing in this cold weather and all. Get EXCITED, later for dinner I will be preparing “Cauliflower wings & SALAD!”PayAttention to the things around you. The universe is always sending assistance our way, we just have to be aware to notice the signs.... #BeLovely & #LiveGrand www.IMGRAND.com #FreeEnergi4Eva#TheReturnofLiberty #GoodKarmaInEffect #PayAttention #ExistPriceless

Energy is at the essence of everything in nature. I have come to understand my life to be constant manipulation of different energies to create the reality i want. If you can learn this art, you can learn how to create the outcomes you want. The law of conservation of energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, only change form. It is this understanding that has lead me to believe alot of the worlds societal and environmental problems are complex web of mismanaged unbalanced energy that are reflected negatively into our entire reality. This is a different way to look at things, but it has been the way i continue to overcome many of the obstacles in my life. I am currently developing my own frameworks around understanding energy, in the name of solving different global issues. I am hoping all this will eventually bring about a new paradigm of thinking that will be part of my efforts to progress humanity forward in my own way.
Hello friends 👋 I haven't checked in for a while! My name is Madelyn and I absolutely LOVE flowers! I also love music, my husband and family and friends, Thai/Italian/Indian/pretty much all food, my religion, and school. I'm finishing my bachelor's in accounting and applying for grad school soon.
I feel very strongly that as a florist, I'm in a position to help or hurt the environment 🌎, so I make it a priority to conserve water where I can and compost all of my biodegradable product.
I feel so lucky I get to invest my time in so many pursuits, but most of all I feel lucky to have such fantastic clients and friends in the wedding industry. I hope I can make you something beautiful soon 💐 Say hello ⬇️ and tell me about yourself!!
#mindfullysustainablereads 📚 "Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things" by William McDonough and Michael Braungart: I just can't get enough of this book! 🌳It's genius. We really lost our way when we started creating synthetic products that can't break down naturally and that result in toxic pollution and waste. The authors combined their knowledge and talents (McDonough, the architect, and Braungart, the chemist) to create a compelling solution to the cradle to grave scenario: Use nature as the model for making things. 🌱☀️The start of the book captured me right away by describing how toxic our everyday surroundings are. From the computers we use to the furniture in our homes and at work, everything (unless naturally derived) is full of toxic and dangerous chemicals. These chemicals cause indoor air pollution, and we're breathing it in all the time. McDonough and Braungart make a good case for building a stronger relationship between the environment and the economy, so the two don't need to be at odds. Bringing the two together, through a lens of using nature as the model to make things, would result in a cradle to cradle approach that's better for our health, the natural environment, and our economy = eco-effectiveness. "waste equals food" - read the book to find out more! 🌿 📖Have you read the book? Let us know what you think! 💚#mindfullysustainable #fightclimatechange#savetheplanet#nontoxic#goodbook
My waste-free essentials 🌿 🍴🌏 Aiming to be more and more #wastefree everyday ✨ •#keepcup #fresskoflask#beezwaxwraps#onyabags#everecostraw - In our house hold it's pretty much illegal to bring home a plastic bag. We don't use garbage bags anymore, it's such a pointless habit we all get in to 💁
The food scraps go straight in to the compost and the rubbish goes in to the bin.
I'm sure that just a single person going wastefree makes such a big difference, even if that means cutting out 1 thing at a time, just buying reusable shopping bags (90c each) or reusable produce bags 🥕or buying a reusable coffee cup ☕️ say one person buys 2 takeaway coffees per week using single use cups, they say "it's not going to make a difference, it's only 2 cups" that adds up to 104 cups per year. Imagine if every single person thought this way, studies have shown that Australians only, use up to 2 BILLION disposable cups per year, these cups don't break down, soon not only the sea will be overflowing with plastic but the streets will too.
Raw vegan for life, baby haha (if I don't become breatharian, I think I'm heading down that path already actually) When people go vegan one of the first things that cross their minds is "why didn't I do it sooner?". This was certainly main case. Being vegan improves your health and well being (emotional, physical, mental and spiritual), helps save animals from needless cruelty (all beings deserve to live, not just cats and dogs which are the most common pets people have), helps preserve the environment. I became vegan for the reasons mentioned above and for me they're all equally important. I recommend visiting ****Veganuary website*** They're a charity helping people make the transition as most people are unaware that a vegan diet is the healthiest and very often don't know what to eat or plan their meals (it's easier than you think). Let me know in ***comments***if you're going to give it a try and what's your main reason for doing it 🙏❤️🌿 #love#loveconnectsusall#loveyourself#savetheplanet#veganfortheanimals#healing#appreciation#spiritualawakening#infinitebeing#light#reikihealing#lifeforceenergy#prana#chi#ki#foodforthesoul#breatharian#loveanimals#lov#lovetheplanetiveon #lovetheplanet #awareness#awake
Every individual has the power to fight climate change just by reducing their carbon footprint. Try out these tips!
Minimize driving by setting concrete reduction goals and walking, biking, carpooling and using public transit as much as possible.
Buy locally sourced, organic, plant-based, unprocessed foods from local farmers, farmers markets, green restaurants and health food stores.
Minimize food waste.
Take the time to research the energy efficiency of large purchases as these offer the biggest opportunities to reduce your ongoing impact - home (size, proximity to work/stores and energy efficiency), equipment and appliances (energy star) and auto (used, electric/hybrid, lowest emissions or auto-free). Reduce energy use. Quick steps:
Focus mainly on reducing water heating and space heating/cooling (low flow shower and faucet heads, energy star heater, regular equipment maintenance, sealing air leaks)
Minimize use of fireplaces or wood stoves
Switch to LED lightbulbs
Unplug unused electronics to minimize standby power consumption
Wash clothes in cold water and hang them to dry
Add insulation and weatherstripping - especially for doors, windows, attic and attic door
Check lights, appliances, curtains and your thermostat every morning and night and anytime you leave home
Install and program a programmable thermostat
Buy certified energy efficient appliances and equipment
Get an energy audit
Reduce water use
Recycle as much as possible, even when travelling, and buy products with recycle-able/minimal packaging. Search online for ways to recycle hard-to-recycle items in your local community.
Compost your food waste
Choose low energy-intensive activities (i.e., hiking vs. sky diving, kayaking vs. powerboats, electric vs. gasoline-powered yard equipment).
Support climate action organizations. Research the companies you buy from (especially ongoing purchases). If they aren't reducing greenhouse gases themselves and supporting action on climate change, switch to a company that is.
Reduce your meat consumption

Hello friends, hope no one's been too snowed in to enjoy the magical happenings of the new year! 🌸 The warm months are not too far away though, so get your gardening tools ready!! This picture comes from a woodsy location which proved to be a great spot for foraging this summer, harvesting your own seeds from local wildlife and regrowing the plants in your own garden is a great way to practice sustainability. Among some Pennsylvania natives includes chickweed, which was collected along with a few other plant varieties. It's important to learn how to identify local plants so that you can utilize them for your own health without spending a dime, and in order to remain a loyal advocate for the native species. Warm your thoughts with the promise of spring breezes and more foraging adventures to come. If you dare to venture. 🌾🍄🌱
