Barwon Heads Primary School now has 75 more waste warriors! 💪🏼 I did my best to fit in as much info about waste reduction and environmental responsibility as I could while keeping things interesting.. I think we all had fun!🐝 Here’s 4A’s breakdown timeline and origami bin liners/pot plants. Not pictured are the peas and beans we planted in recycled containers🌱The kids were lovely and had a great knowledge of pollution impacts having grown up by the sea. Thanks to @lissy_backwell
for doing her school and community a huge favour and organising the classes, all the best with your nude food and soft plastics recycling challenges! • I love education and learning from kids, especially because it’s their future we are striving to preserve, so send me a message if you’d like to chat about a workshop with your class 😊
If you would have told me a year ago that I would have purple hair I would have laughed in your face! (I’ll come back to this). 🤣🤣🤣 The last year has been full of so many changes for me... I used to count calories, cut back on my favorite foods and constantly feel hungry when trying to lose weight. Especially after 2 back to back pregnancies. When I found keto I thought, “it goes against everything I’ve previously thought however that is not working for me... I need to give this a try.” I’m so glad I did!!!!!!! Keto has changed me from the inside out. I was so dependent on carbs, sugar and my obsession of Diet Coke. The way I feel these days is enough of a reward to keep going. I decided several months ago to mark these life changes with something crazy... hence my hair!!! I absolutely love it and I don’t see changing it back anytime soon 💜
is Zoey approved 😍 She’s loving the fruit punch🍒🍓 and I can’t wait to get the apple 🍏 next!
IF YOU THINK THIS "ONLY" HAPPENS IN OTHER COUNTRIES YOU ARE MISTAKEN.
If you happen to see this and think well this doesn't happen where I live...It does!
No matter the country, wherever animals as used as food, the atrocities are the same. The animals' screams are universal.
"To keep that production line moving, quite often animals are beaten, they have prods poked in their faces and up their rectums, they have bones broken and eyeballs poked out, the sick and suffering are left unattended for days. Sometimes animals are simply beaten to death out in the pens before being slipped into the slaughtering process. Some even reach various stages of the slaughtering process alive. They have their hooves cut off, part of their bung and their body cavities opened." -Dave Carney USDA Inspector
Well aren't there laws? There has to be laws against this. "The inspectors I talk to are from all over the country, it's an everyday occurrence clear across the United States," (as well as everywhere) states Carney USDA Inspector. "The Humane Slaughter Act is a regulation on paper only, he reiterated. "It is not being enforced."
Now you know the truth, the question is will you continue to fund the atrocities against the animals or withdraw your support of it, and stop participating in it? Human beings do not need to eat animals in order to survive. You can thrive on a plant-based diet. For the animals, your health, and our environment embrace veganism.🌱

they are just like #cats
the only difference is your #perception
This is not just a sticker. I see Pirusalda's kits as a tool to learn a very useful #skill
. Embroidery would let you reuse and recycle your clothes and decoration items at your home. #Embroidery
can make the difference taking part of #Fashionrevolution

We often repeat the same mistakes due to thinking we will find who we are in things outside of what God intends for us. Starting over requires a new thought process.

I left my cup for 10 minutes & it’s full of flies - this is why I love my Norwex Silicone Cup Lids because I don’t like drinking bugs 🐜 eek (I’m also terrible at drinking fast so they always get cold & this extends the warm time!) 🤩 #lemon #tea #plasticfree #hotdrink
Sold a lot of books yesterday and picked a couple.
I was drawn to the beauty of Aesop’s Fables. Books like this provide an alternative to deep work in a book. Some books need extensive time in one chunk.
Collections like Aesop provide a daily ritual to use stories as lessons, like when we were children.
The one I happened on today really could not have been any better and it is titled, “The Mountain in Labor”
Waking up at 4 am with my creative process and going deep into the day with interactions I’m blessed to have through #reflexiveperformanceteset
charge me up.
I’m in flow and at my best during this entire process.
However, I find when it’s over I must down-regulate. Failing to do so results in impatience, rudeness, and impulsivity.
Reading the lesson today was important because it reminded me yesterday is in the past, the mistakes can be owned, and I can practice down-regulating next time.
Every day provides a lesson. Even if I didn’t read another book, passage, or article #life
would provide me with an infinite amount of lessons through direct experience.
There’s a lesson in there.
Maybe more consumption isn’t the answer.
Maybe we are over-consuming, yet malnourished in the human experience.
Maybe there’s another way.
Would ya take a look at that! This project by ReThink Development and Barbara Bestor is a looker. 2807 Silver Lake will be mixed use with retail and creative office space located on Sunset Blvd.
Der gestrige Tag der Erde hat hoffentlich den Einen oder Anderen zum Nachdenken angeregt. Auch ich habe nachgedacht und bin, wie schon so oft, zu dem Ergebnis gekommen, dass wir es sind, die die Macht haben. Es ist unser Konsumverhalten, dass die Wirtschaft und zum größten Teil die ökologische Entwicklung unserer Erde beeinflusst. Momentan schaufelt die Menschheit sich in jeglicher Hinsicht ihr eigenes Grab. Um das zu stoppen muss umgedacht werden. Wer wirklich etwas Gutes für die Welt, die Tiere und sich selbst tun möchte, sollte auch bei sich selbst anfangen. Es fängt 3 Mal am Tag auf dem eigenen Teller an. Allein das hat einen enormen Einfluss und man leistet einen so tollen und großen Beitrag zu einer besseren Welt! Nimm es nicht einfach nur hin und sieh es nicht als normal an, was hinter den Mauern der Massentierhaltung passiert. Hinterfrag was du isst und recherchiere es. Hab das Selbstbewusstsein dein Handeln als einflussreich anzusehen und denk nicht, du könntest nichts bewegen. Vielleicht entscheidest Du Dich ja öfter mal dafür, die pflanzliche Variante zu wählen und nicht die tierische, denn jedes einzelne Mal zählt!🌱🌍✨ ——————————————————— Let’s take yesterday’s world earth day to talk about the ecological change of our planet made by us. Yesterday I got to the same point as many times before. We are the ones who have the biggest impact on the economy and the ecological change. What we consume today creates the world of tomorrow. Living like most humans do today destroys us and our future in the long term. It’s time to rethink our behavior. The ones who want to accomplish something to make this world a better place should start on their own plate. Think about what you have on your plate 3 times a day and make a good decision. Don’t think industrial livestock farming is a normal thing. Don’t think your behavior and your decisions doesn’t have any impact on the world. Maybe you choose the plant based option more often than the animal based one because every time counts!🌱🌍✨ #worldearthday #greenfuture #positivity #vegan #veganfood #veganvibes #veganism #plantbased #govegan #veganfortheanimals #veganfortheplanet #veganshare #goodvibes #rethink
It’s been a crazy week (ok more like a month). Remember all that furniture built out of reclaimed wood that was so big and chunky in the itty bitty Dragon Alley Store? It sure looks small and lonely in the new huge space. But more display fixtures are on their way and a lot more product!
The leak has been fixed! 🎉 And we will absolutely be open tomorrow! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 However... we might not be able to process debit transactions. Modern retail businesses rely on the internet and the @Telus
tech never showed today, so I am still without internet and a phone line 😡 I spent pretty much half the day calling, being put on hold, transferred, disconnected, calling back, trying live chat instead and I still have no idea when I am getting the internet and phone hooked up! 😡😡
So let’s all pretend it’s the olden times and use cash to pay for our package free purchases! We are going to try to do visa and master card using Square temporarily.
Yup... it’s been a very long week. 💚 .
Things are just getting started on our Para Hills project. Here is Tyler getting the space prepared ready for the fun to begin. Check out our Insta stories for before shots of the bathroom.
Fashion Revolution week has kicked off today! It all started after the horrible Rana Plaza factory collapsed killing 1,138 people.
It’s time to ask ourselves why is this happening? Why are we consuming so much? Who is behind this garment? Where does it come from and do I really need it?
Here at Kelly Ekardt our garments are made locally using overstock materials. We aim to keep our carbon footprint low. We believe in reusing, recycling and rewearing. Our garments are meant to be worn always. They are meant to be a staple in your wardrobe.
I encourage you to start asking questions about your garments. Support local designers and ask yourself will I wear this forever.

Is regenerative medicine right for you? Surgical knee replacement has been the go-to treatment for arthritis and other degenerative disorders of the knee joint, but this approach can cause more problems than solutions. Without major surgery you can promote the body’s healing process regenerating the natural joint to restore range or motion and reduce pain.
Now’s your chance to try the EndoHandle. We will be at the AAE this week in Denver. Come visit us at Booth #1126

Early humans had when confronted with the ultimate "other": an animal, they were primarily seen by humans as either prey or predator. Human desire to turn these "others" into animals less alien marks the beginning of domestication. The idea was to make the animals more docile (smaller, with less strength), slower, so that we could catch them more easily, and more willing to accept servitude.
In the case of "farmed" animals, the relationship never approached anything like an even exchange. We took their eggs, their milk, their flesh, their skin, their work, and exchange they got, as far as I can see, the short end of the stick. While we protected them from predators, this was only because we, a more powerful predator, had already earmarked them for our own exploitation, invariably ending with their personal extinction. How it can be argued that this is to protect them has always struck me as odd.
It's not the animals that are flawed but we as humans are. One of the mysteries about the earliest contacts between domestic animals and humans is whether it was the animals usefulness or our attraction to them as companions that was the original impetus for domestication. Whatever it was, we have lost the connection or have grown so ignorant, or so human-centered, that we can no longer SEE THEM.
THEY TRUSTED US. WE BETRAYED THEM!
It's time that we've given back what we so have wrongly taken. Respect the rights of ALL that share this planet WITH us not FOR us.
