ES – FR
English
I decided i could do more to save energy and look after my planet, so this month I have:
– changed my electricity contract to a company which uses renewable energy ( i stopped giving my money to people i really don’t want to be feeding and i reduce pollution) = it took me 10 minutes online
– bought beeswax wrap to stop using plastic wrap and aluminium = 5 minutes
– bought a bamboo toothbrush = 5 minutes
– bought reusable fabric pad to stop using trough away cotton for face wash = 5 minutes
– I bought a Berkley water filter (275€) which has a filter that lasts 10 years, this will replace 58240 plastic bottles ( = 37856€ not taking into account the price going up every year) (1 bottle a day each for 4 persons) = 5 minutes (+ a few months on researching the best filters)
– I swapped a few items on the exchange mailing lists i am member of = 1h
– I lent a table on the APP LENDI (to lend and borrow from your neighbours) = 5 minutes
– I asked my local health-food shop if they could look for tofu and veggie buggers in non-plastic containers = 1 minute
– I have decided I’ll do my best from now on, not buy clothes that contain plastic (bamboo, hemp, linen, silk, etc. ) and organic ones whenever possible and to carry on buying second hand clothes. = 1 minute
– I gave some of my books to friends so that they can read them = 5 minutes
– I signed as many petitions as i could to help fight against climate change and nature preservation on greenpeace.com, change.org, mesopinions.com = 15 minutes
– I made the search engines LILO my main one, so every time i look for something on internet an association (which i choose) receives money. = 5 minutes
– I bought some poppy flower pins to help publicise the movement nousvoulonsdescoquelicots.org
– i downloaded the 90jours app to help me to make changes.
It’s a start, every little helps, in total it took me about 2h this month, very little efforts and i saved quite a lot of money in the process as i won’t have to buy this single use items any more: water bottles, cotton pads, cling film and aluminium film.

J’ai décidé que je pouvais faire plus pour économiser l’énergie et m’occuper ma planète, donc ce mois-ci j’ai :

– changé mon contrat d’électricité pour une société qui utilise de l’ énergie renouvelable (j’ai cessé de donner mon argent à des gens que je ne veux vraiment pas être “nourrir” et je réduis la pollution) = il m’a fallu 10 minutes en ligne
– acheté des films alimentaire de cire d’ abeille pour cesser d’ utiliser des films alimentaire en plastique et en aluminium = 5 minutes
– acheté une brosse à dents en bambou = 5 minutes
– acheté des lingettes en tissu réutilisables pour cesser d’utiliser du coton pour me laver le visage = 5 minutes
– acheté un filtre à eau Berkley (275 €) qui a un filtre qui dure 10 ans, cela remplacera 58240 bouteilles en plastique 37856 € ne prenant pas en compte le prix qui monte chaque année) (1 bouteille par jour chacun pour 4 personnes ) = 5 minutes (+ quelques mois de la recherche sur les meilleurs filtres)
– troqué quelques articles sur des listes de diffusion d’échange où je suis membre = 1 h
– prêté une table sur la APP Lendi (pour prêter et emprunter à vos voisins) = 5 minutes
– demandé ma boutique d’aliments organiques locaux si ils pouvaient rechercher du tofu et des veggie burgers dans des contenants sand plastique = 1 minute
– décidé que je ferai de mon mieux à partir de maintenant, pour ne pas acheter des vêtements qui contiennent en plastique (bambou, chanvre, lin, soie, etc.) et organiques quand cela sera possible ainsi que de poursuivre les achats de vêtements de seconde main = 1 minute
– donné certains de mes livres à des amis afin qu’ils puissent les lire = 5 minutes
– signé autant de pétitions que je pouvais pour aider à lutter contre le changement climatique et à la préservation de la nature sur greenpeace.com , change.org , mesopinions.com = 15 minutes
– mis le moteur de recherche LILO comme mon principal moteur, donc à chaque fois que je cherche quelque chose sur internet une association (que je choisis) reçoit de l’ argent. = 5 minutes
– acheté quelques pins coquelicots pour aider à faire connaître le mouvement nousvoulonsdescoquelicots.org
– téléchargé l’ application 90jours pour m’aider à faire des changements.

C’est un début, chaque petit geste aide, au total il m’a fallu environ 2 heures ce mois-ci, très peu d’efforts et j’ai épargné beaucoup d’argent dans le processus car je ne vais plus avoir à acheter ces articles à usage unique : bouteilles d’eau, coton, films alimentaire en plastique et de l’aluminium.

Supermarket CEOs: get rid of pointless plastic packaging – UK

“Supermarkets produce a whopping 800,000 tonnes of plastic packaging a year.

Some plastic can be recycled, but most ends up in a landfill or incincerated, as litter or in our rivers and oceans. Marine life can become entangled in plastic or mistake it for food – up to 90% of seabirds have plastic in their stomachs.

It’s time to take our message straight to the top. Please will you email the CEOs of your regular supermarkets and ask them to take action to curb plastic pollution?” Greenpeace

Send a message to the CEO of the supermarket you choose (or to all of them):

https://act.greenpeace.org/page/29634/action/1?locale=en-GB

One day. One planet. One goal. Millions of people in 150 countries uniting to clean up our world, in the biggest civic action in human history.

“On 15 September, volunteers and partners worldwide will come together to rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.
A powerful ‘green wave’ of cleanups will start in New Zealand and end 36 hours later in Hawaii, with millions of people working towards one goal: a clean and healthy planet.
World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of everyday people to achieve incredible things by joining together. Its beauty lies in cooperation and collaboration: building bridges between disparate communities, and including all levels of society – from citizens, to business, to government.” World cleanup day 2018

OVER 5 TRILLION PIECES OF PLASTIC CURRENTLY LITTER THE OCEAN – Anywhere

“OVER 5 TRILLION PIECES OF PLASTIC CURRENTLY LITTER THE OCEAN
Trash accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.
The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of our systems is estimated to clean up 50 % of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years.” Ocean Cleanup
