How do we find balance? I’ve been thinking on this for some time. I appreciate the city, but we must maintain our natural environments. I want to make money but not if the cost is trading it for morality. I value modern conveniences but not at the cost of ruining our world. We must find a balance. 🌏⚖️ #balance#awareness#world#environment#phoenix#arizona

Inktober 2018. Day 11, Cruel. My eldest saw something on the TV once and got scared. We told him sometimes bad things are out there but there are also good things and probably more. Btw, if anyone wants to google and help, there are a few organisations that help with orang utans or just environment in general. #inktober#inktober2018#inktobermalaysia#hakimostudio#orangutans#environment
I love flowers! I used to buy flowers every two weeks. I think it really adds value to any interior. 😍
Unfortunately, I found out that flowers are not that sustainable... Most of the time, a lot of different chemicals are used and also don't forget that flowers often have to be shipped for many miles. This has a major negative effect on the environment! ..
Therefore, I bought artificial flowers two years ago! Our guests always think that the flowers are real 😀 ..
Back then, I spend around 100 euros for this artificial bouquet. While in the past, I bought fresh flowers for 15 euros every two weeks. This means I made a great and sustainable deal 😎 #sustainabilitymatters#mywallet too 😉
Before you knew that the flowers in the picture are artificial, did you think these flowers were real?
Hundreds of baby turtles are released back into the sea every year. Did you know that all over the world, turtles are increasingly under threat? Illegal animal trafficking, pollution like the 10 million tonnes of plastic in our oceans, and global warming kill hundreds of thousands of turtles every year, rendering some species endangered. Recent studies show that over half of the young turtles found off the coast of Australia died with plastic in their stomachs. But all over the world, researchers and animal protectors are fighting back, for turtles and our environment, and so can you! As Jane said “I’m proof that just one person can make a difference.” What is something that you and the rest of us can do to make the world and its oceans a safer place for these baby turtles?

The time has finally come for us to announce our most recent addition: our in-store #zerowaste cafe opens on Monday, October 22nd! From Monday onwards, our store & cafe daily opening hours will now be 7 am - 8 pm - perfect for all you early risers & morning grocery shoppers! 🌞 •
Get your reusable supplies ready as you'll soon be able to eat, sip, and socialize at Nada. We'll be sharing details throughout the week on our social channels as we have a new team to introduce, menu items to announce, and supplier collaborations to share! For now, help us spread the word by inviting your friends and colleagues out for a coffee date at Nada next week! As always, we welcome your feedback, so please be sure to share your first impressions with us to help make the space better for all! •
The goal of Nada's cafe is to close the loop of surplus food within our own store - turning those imperfect fruits and veggies into tasty treats, soups, and smoothies and keeping even more food out of the compost. •
Just like the store, we have a bring your own cup/container #BYOC policy- we're saying no to single-use cutlery, cups, and takeout containers for good! And don't worry, if you happen to forget your travel mug, we'll always have a few options available so that you'll never have to miss out on your caffeine fix! •
This next phase is incredibly near & dear to our hearts, and we'd like to thank you all for your support thus far. Time is flying by as we're having far too much fun, and we cannot wait to have you hang out in-store with your lovers, friends, and family members. We hope you'll kick off your shoes and stay a while! 💛
Роспотребнадзор одобрил вывоз наших сахалинских касаток в китайские аквариумы. И это при том, что сейчас весь мир говорит о том, что этих животных нельзя держать в неволе. 7 касаток уже отловили и увезли.
Друзья, подпишите онлайн петицию на Change.org. Там все подробно описано, а также в статье Новой Газеты.

Я понимаю, что Инстаграм не место для плохих новостей, но здесь нельзя промолчать. Какой смысл организовывать группы по спасению животных, которых следом наше правительство постановит отправить в Китай? ---------
Russian Government approved the catch and export of shark whales who live near Sakhalin island to Chinise Aquariums. 7 animals already got caught and transported. Orcas should not be kept in captivity. Please sign the petition to draw attention of authorities and stop this.
GALLERY 2 [17.10.18] ‘Urban Skins’ • Eric Duplan @eric.duplan (#oil on #canvas ) & André Clements @andre.clements (#ultraviolet light cured prints on brushed silver machine-finished aluminium composite panels) • This group #exhibition explores the spatial constraints of ever increasing urbanisation, mobility vs. isolation in a #digital age and the fragility of a post-industrial #environment that bear the tracks of human intervention. The subject matter becomes romanticized through the use of #abstraction and sensitivity of surface, urging the viewer to engage with the work, thus implying an (in)voluntary extension of awareness and care to the narrative. • On a person note, I have keenly followed Duplan’s #artwork over the years and stood in awe of the sensitivity and gravity of this body of work. Perfectly balanced by the ethereal quality of Clements’ ghost images. Well done to @gallery2_ for the exceptional curation. • #gallery2_#gallery#abstract#groupexhibition#painting#print#art#urban
🌱erbe spontanee 🌱 or ‘spontaneous herb,’ what Sicilians refer to their wild plants as. as I get more into community work with my herbal practice I find myself having a lot of conversations about “weeds” ... and they can be taxing conversations to have ~ but in a world where store bought food is often nutrient deficient and expensive, I feel it’s practically a civic duty to help people remember whats always been in their backyard. ***there’s no such thing as a weed*** the term only came about with the invention of the crop, as something to call the wild plants that “interfered” with agriculture. now people most often use it to mean a plant that’s useless, invasive, needs to be controlled. The dominant opinion on “invasive species” and the chemical war waged on them is fucking sad, cause the truth is no plants are useless, and the withstanding symbiotic relationship between plants and disease is real and deep. Nature doesn’t make mistakes, and has solutions for its own problems and often the ones we cause too. These species provide essential ecological functions, cleaning our water, soil, and air. All plants have been on the move for hundreds of millions of years, with numerous factors helping them inhabit areas they previously didn’t. Many of the plants considered invasive today in the U.S. were brought here and spread around by many different immigrant groups who used them for food, medicine, soil enhancement, etc. Over time they spread into the wild and have found ecological niches improving their surrounding environment, repairing soil after wildfires, protecting land after improper clearing, breaking down and cleaning up toxins and pollutants. Also, miraculously so, the widespread appearance of these plants parallels the epidemic movement of pathogenic influences ~ providing important remedies to our modern illnesses. Our medicine, following us around, cleaning up industrial spills and healing pathogenic diseases. Offering economic opportunities to impoverished communities and providing restoration for the land and endangered medicinal plants. But the powers that be would rather have you thinking you need to eradicate your dandelions with round up 🤔
SON OF A GUN 🔫🔫Wollongong, NSW ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For @sonofagun_wollongong - a container cafe operating within the @sifterswollongong co-op, meeting the Ocean Friendly criteria was an absolute breeze!
With cardboard packaging, paper straws, wooden cutlery, and encouraging the good ol' keep cup ☕️they are absolutely killing it 👊🏼 Their reason for doing this? "We did it to care for our earth!"🌏🌻🐬..."keeping our planet healthy and alive should be a reason in itself to go plastic free"- Ray. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Son Of A Gun team are showing the public that it is possible to create a fun, welcoming atmosphere with great food and coffee...and care for the environment at the same time.

Что мы можем сделать, для сохранения (окружающей среды) природы на земле матушке?
• Не мусори, а также сортируй бытовой мусор;
• Займись облагораживанием своего города - посади своими руками деревце, цветочек..! 🌳
• Экономь топливо, старайся ходить пешком или на велосипеде и т.п.; ⛽️
• Снижай потребление электроэнергии - используй электричество разумно - выключи свет, если он тебе не нужен; 💡
• Выбирай правильные материалы- полиэтилен и пластик могут разлагаться на свалках долгие годы, а при их сжигании выделяется едкий черный дым. 📦
• Экономь воду; 💦
• Отдавайте ненужные вещи - не выкидывай не нужную вещь - отдай нуждающемуся! 👖
• За городом или на даче - тоже можно пользоваться эко-советами: собирать дождевую воду и использовать ее для полива, избегать химических удобрений для почвы, взамен применять натуральные удобрения, не устраивать несанкционированные свалки за дачными участками; 🍅
• Соблюдай законы- не занимайся -
вырубкой лесов, сборкой редких и занесенных в Красную книгу растений, браконьерством, умышленными или случайными поджогами, загрязнением речных вод химическими отходами и прочей противоправной деятельностью; 🌳 🌿 ☀️
