The biotype is the genotype common to a group of individuals, and the genotype in turn is the set of genetic information of a cell, an organism or individual or specific part of that genetic information.

To create a better tomorrow for our future selves and our children, we need to be aware how our food choices are affecting the world around us. If food and water shortages might seem like an abstract scenario to you right now, let me tell you – they’re not. So, if you are concerned about your health – and your family´s – keep reading this post; after this your supermarket run will never be the same (and that’s a good thing, I believe!)

A circular economy is an economic system aimed at minimising waste and making the most of resources. In a circular system resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimized by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops; this can be achieved through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, remanufacturing, refurbishing, and recycling.

Fabrics made from natural fibres – cotton, wool, bamboo, flax, etc – are known as less toxic and polluting. Fashion brand´s improved production methods such as low-impact dying and upcycling of other natural fibres or even plastic waste are gaining worldwide attention. Hooray!
Mobility is integrated, connected and on demand. It was never so easy to travel hundreds of miles within a few hours as in nowadays; commuting can be done either by car, plane, boat, bus, train, bicycle, foot…you choose! But it is that choice that makes our lifestyle greener or not; our arbitrary preference to commute has a huge impact in the Planet, and in our future.
