A current trend hitting social media is the #10yearchallenge in which people share photos of themselves taken a decade apart. Unfortunately it is this obsession with self that makes the majority of us miss the real changes happening all around us.
These photos by @liquidsaltdivers highlight the real challenges we should really be talking about.
Powerful images for the #10yearchallenge#tenyearchallenge .
We have to start making drastic changes for the planet TODAY to avoid even worse images come another ten years. What do you think the world will look like in ten years? What do you want it to look like in ten years? What are you doing regarding your energy consumption? Are you optimistic or do you feel like giving up?
If you kno wthe creator of these, please tag. I find the message from these images moving. Not verified to be the same spot, but still important subject for reflection.
Did you know that all of our packaging is 100% compostable and biodegradable? There is nothing left after just 90 days, leaving our planet a bit cleaner & healthier.
This type of packaging is a bit more expensive on our end, BUT it means less waste for the same taste 💚🌍🌱♻️
Staying with my almond milk. Lower glycemic index than rice. Less emissions as well. Allergic to cow, soy, and oat.
Which milks are the best for climate change? 🌱
Via @bbcnews “A scientific study suggests the greenhouse gas emissions used in the production of plant-based milks are lower than for dairy milk.
But which milk has the smallest impact on the planet?
Producing a glass of dairy milk results in almost three times the greenhouse gas emissions of any non-dairy milks, according to a University of Oxford study.
Looking at land use, the difference is starker still.
Producing a glass of dairy milk every day for a year requires 650 sq m (7,000 sq ft) of land, the equivalent of two tennis courts and more than 10 times as much as the same amount of oat milk, according to this study.
Almond milk requires more water to produce than soy or oat milk. A single glass requires 74 litres (130 pints of water) - more than a typical shower. Rice milk is also comparatively thirsty, requiring 54 litres of water per glass.
However, it's worth noting that both almond and rice milk still require less water to produce than the typical glass of dairy milk.” #ditchdairy#goplantbased#cowspiracy#animalagriculture#climate#climatechange#environment#dairy#plantsforthewin#solutions
Happy long weekend to you!! Hope you’re enjoying sunny skies after a stormy week. Los Angeles has had almost 5 inches of rainfall, much more than average for this month.
Plus, the storms have brought plenty of snow to the Sierra Nevadas, which is where the majority of California water comes from!
Get outside and celebrate ☺️
