Hi there, I can’t believe it’s Thursday already! Now here is a quick update: the name of the weekly column is going to be changed into “Eco Picks”. I’ll continue to stick to five topics a week. Eco Picks are only meant to offer a short glimpse, while other topics are going to be covered more in-depth. This week, it is going to be the plastic-free bathroom #2.
Anyway, I am not going to delay this much longer.
1.Remember, Climate Strike starts tomorrow (20th-27th September).
2.What do sea turtles tell us about climate change? A lot, according to this enlightening and frightening article.
3.The plight of the Amazon rainforest from an indigenous perspective.
4.The following article brings it home to us, that replacing non-degradable plastics by bio-degradable ones is not the answer to our problem. We need to curb production and reform our single-use and throw-away consumerism to make a difference.
5.And last but not least, consider signing up to the Green Light email to keep up to date with our planet’s most pressing stories.
Enjoy the rest of your week and the coming weekend!
