Sooo excited for the 4-day weekend!! 🙌🏼✈️ But I’m even more excited that, yesterday, a post-doc at Boston University heard about my work through the grapevine, and expressed interest in collaborating, to study local vs. regional patterns of airborne mercury (Hg). 🚱.In case you didn’t know, high levels of elemental mercury can harm the brain, heart, and immune system. Most of the mercury released into the environment is from human activities such as the burning of coal, oil, and wood. 🚂🔥 .We are typically exposed to mercury as methylmercury via fish and shellfish consumption. 🐠 🎣 I was excited to hear she wanted to work with me because this would extend my project at Harvard’s School of Public Health, studying particle emissions inventories at the local and neighborhood scale. I can’t share the rest of the details...but I’m looking forward to this project. 💁🏻‍♀️.In honor of Thanksgiving, I’m super grateful 🙏🏼for the opportunity to collaborate with hardworking scientists and engineers around me, that are genuinely hoping to make this world a better place. 🌎🌏🌍I’ll be working late tonight (and in flight) but I can’t wait to spend time with family in California tomorrow! ❤️ #Earth #green #Environment #Science #STEM #gradschool #Harvard #BU

Meet Peanut, a young turtle who grew up trapped in a six-pack ring, at a young age she couldn’t escape out and her body continued to grow around. Her story highlights the effects of our excess consumption and waste that have wreaked defenceless animals! Because we care about animals like Peanut we included a picture of how to properly cut your plastic rings!

We love the visually arresting and symbolic art of Portuguese artist and activist Bordalo ii. Built with end-of-life products, his ‘Big Trash Animals’ series aims to create environmental awareness by depicting the very natural elements that suffer from our throwaway habits. Pictured: his particularly fantastic giant bee, at LX Factory in Lisbon. His exhibit ‘Attero’ features many more and is currently running in Lisbon.

Been spoiling myself of late and received my first order from @floraandfaunaau today. They're a really awesome company to purchase from given their range of waste free, eco friendly and sustainable products, but also because they now provide a minimal packaging option when you order. 🙌 Even the tape keeping the cardboard box intact that contained my goods was eco friendly!! 😍 Loved receiving a personalised message from them too - such thoughtful customer service! 👌 Looking forward to indulging even more on my next order... #wastefree #zerowaste #ecofriendly #floraandfauna #sustainableliving #Melbourne #eco #sustainability #greenliving

This #Thanksgiving, please don't pour fats, oils, and grease down the drain. Even with hot water, this is what it can do to #sewer pipes. Fats, oils, and grease should be poured into a sealed jar and placed in the trash bin or taken to a SAFE Center. #saveoursewers #environment #sustainability #followme #instafollow #FOG #losangeles #mydayinla #grease #green #gross #oil #sustainablelifestyle #sanitation #foodwaste #landfilldiversion #SAFECenter #trash

This week Liquid Founder, Rowena, has committed to start her ZERO WASTE lifestyle 🌿♻️🌱! Rowena will be working closely with @loopunite to guide her through this fascinating process. If you're interested to know more about Zero Wasting, Rowena will be presenting a seminar on 'Zero Waste Concepts in our Homes' with Paola from @LoopUnite at a Platinum HK event on 1st December. Check out the link in bio for more info & tickets!♻️🗑💡. .⠀.⠀.⠀Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient & visionary, guiding people in changing their lifestyles & practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use. It means designing & managing products & processes to systematically avoid & eliminate the volume & toxicity of waste & materials, conserve & recover all resources, & not burn or bury them. Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land, water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health. These concepts will be presented with applications to residential design from Rowena Gonzales from Liquid Interiors through case studies. She will be covering aspects in design, construction and execution systems that can be used from corporate level fit outs to DIY projects.⠀...📸 courtesy of @loopunite ..⠀.⠀#plasticfree #zerowastegoals #zerowastehk #zerowasteliving #bethechange #hongkong #zerofoodwaste #recycle #gogreen #reducewaste #green #sustainability #ecofriendly #zerowaste #sustainableliving #beachcleanup #plasticbottles #noplastic #banplastic #saveourplanet #loopunite #designmatters #sustainabledesigner #sustainabledesign #hongkongdesign #hongkongdesigner #hkdesign #hongkonginsta #ecohome #sustainablehome

Jag är just nu på Island och arbetar med ett projekt om förnyelsebar energi då jag fick en glädjande nyhet i form av ett pressmeddelandet där Öresundskraft i december utrustar grundskolan Loi Waisi i Uganda med solceller. Projektet är en del av Öresundskrafts hållbarhetsarbete och ska förbättra livskvalitet och regional tillväxt i Mbale där skolan ligger vilken jag besökte med mina kollegor i augusti. Jag är så stolt över dessa båda projekt! Bra jobbat allesammans! Tillsammans kan vi göra skillnad! 👏Läs gärna mer här: https://oresundskraft.se/om-oeresundskraft/nyheter/2017/november/uganda/ https://oresundskraft.se/om-oeresundskraft/nyheter/2017/november/uganda/. #sustainability #thenordicfootprintproject #rcwproject #uganda #iceland 🇮🇸🇺🇬#medvärldensomklassrum ♻️

One of my favourite things, which feels like it should be sung by Julie Andrews, ATM is walking through the orchard & being caressed by the heavy perfume of honey offset by the lightness of wild flowers which dance on the breeze. I scattered their seed sometime ago amidst a sea of beneficial insect mix & green manure hoping that if I built it they would come. And so they did.Where only three years ago there was nothing here but scarred rock & impermeable clay, today lush layers begin to form a food forest and heal the seemingly barren earth beneath. Terraforming an unlikely oasis in the dry woodland's cruelly plucked breast.This heady aroma is heightened in the evenings juxtaposed with the Ironbarks currently steeped in flower. The lofty scent permeates out onto the driveway & also where I sit to connect with & handfeed the goldfish opposite the hive at the pioneer aquaponics Tiki Spa in the mornings. Stillness in body & breath, the self naked but for the nourishing drapery of what leeches from within this humble linseeded tower of boxes. So intoxicating!The buzz of busy bees in the Warrè Hive under the young cherry tree, hugged by Sharky's succulent barrow, even in the stillness of night demonstrates that along with rust & many nocturnal forces of the wild, sometimes hushed until I too become invisible with them, these incredible workers never sleep. And must never die.They are the delightful glue, an intergral piece of the symbiotic puzzle binding everything together. Which makes savouring the fruit of their labours with a deep inhalation on a divine spring day such as this, all the sweeter still....#bees #savethebees #naturalbeekeeping #beekeeper #warre #warrehive #permaculture #homesteading #mybackyard #organicgarden #organicgardening #microfarm #backyardfarm #spring #springday #springtime #springmood #offgridliving #greenliving #sustainability #slowliving #simplelife #seekthesimplicity #livesimple #foodforest #foodsecurity #growyourownfood #ediblegarden #iloveithere #aussiebush
