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.
Waste is the “action or effect of wasting or overspending”.
Want to achieve a more eco-conscious life but not sure where to start or whether your efforts will even be significant?

Organic farming relies on fertilizers of organic origin such as compost manure, green manure, and bone meal and places emphasis on techniques such as crop rotation and companion planting.
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.
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!
I believe if you are a parent you will be always on the hunt for attractive, educational toys for your kids (either babies, toddlers or older kids) that spark their interest and inspire creativity. Finding such toys but also keeping our planet in mind is not such a big challenge anymore…you just need to look in the right places!
