"Menschen, die sich sozial oder ökologisch engagieren, sind nachweislich zufriedener mit ihrem Leben." Das ist eines der Ergebnisse des Glücksatlases, der jährlichen repräsentativen Studie über die Lebenszufriedenheit in Deutschland. Unsere COSMO-Nachhaltigkeitsexpertin Shia Su kann das nur bestätigen. Sie bezeichnet ihren veganen und müllfreien Lebensstil als Bereicherung.

Wusstet ihr, dass Heizkosten und Warmwasseraufbereitung 70% der Energiekosten in einem drei-Personen-Haushalt ausmachen? Das sagt die Energieagentur NRW. Das muss nicht sein, wenn man nur weiß, wie man klug heizt, sagt COSMO-Nachhaltigkeitsexpertin Shia Su.

Scientists find #gold worth $2 million in Swiss #sewage

source: http://money.cnn.com/2017/10/11/news/gold-switzerland-water-sewage-waste/index.html
An estimated 95 pounds of gold is flushed through Swiss sewage systems each year, according to a study by the aquatic science institute Eawag.

The lost gold is worth nearly $2 million at current prices.

The researchers believe the tiny flecks of gold flow into the waste water system from the country's famed watchmaking #industry and gold refineries.

Scientists have struck gold in an unlikely place: Swiss sewage and waste water treatment plants.
 
Jetzt im Herbst hört man sie überall: die Laubsauger und Laubbläser. Diese Geräte sind nicht nur laut und nervig, sondern auch eine ganz schöne Umweltbelastung, sagt Shia Su, unsere COSMO-Nachhaltigkeitsexpertin.

Invisibles - The #plastic inside us

“We have enough data from looking at wildlife, and the impacts that it’s having on #wildlife, to be concerned,” said Dr Sherri Mason, a #microplastic expert at the State #University of New York in Fredonia, who supervised the analyses for Orb. “If it’s impacting [wildlife], then how do we think that it’s not going to somehow impact us?”
...
“We are living in The Plastic Age,” the investigation stated. “Plastic frees us, improving daily life in almost uncountable ways. And plastic imprisons us in waste and microscopic #pollution.”

This man is a champ, a true environmental legend! Founder of Green School, John Hardy, Bambu Indah, Green by John and Sampah Jujur among many of his amazing initiatives, John has been walking everyday since moving to Bali in 1975 until he realized that trash was a usual sight everywhere he would go. He then brought his stick and a bag to collect trash daily and is now creating a trash economy here in Bali

The business of buying trash with Sampah Jujur

Sampah Jujur is an initiative based in Baung, Bali, to create an economy for plastic and other waste. Started by John Hardy, the initiative began as morning walks picking up trash around the neighborhood. Meeting at Bambu Indah in Ubud most weekday mornings around 7-7:30am, people walk, collecting items for recycling and reclaiming garbage from the paddies, streets and streams, bringing them to Bambu Indah, where the tr... mehr anzeigen

“Many were surprised to learn that when the plant is decommissioned, the fuel has nowhere to go," said David Victor, chairman of the San Onofre Community Engagement Panel tasked with overseeing the closure. "The problem is, nobody is in charge."

Nuclear Plants Closing Early Leave Decades of Toxic Waste Stranded

Midway between San Diego and Los Angeles, the San Onofre Nuclear Plant waits to be dismantled. After more than 40 years of protests, lawsuits and safety scares, its two concrete-encased reactors, jutting from the pristine California coastline, are powered down and its massive steam turbines, once deafening, are quiet.

Reflection

A Water Story

Reflection is a follow-up film to the award winning documentary Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective. This time exploring our relationship to water.

We live in a society constructed around the belief that all things exist and act independently and in isolation; that all life is fundamentally separate. Consider our relationship to water - a substance necessary for life. Our people and our systems weild it with aggressive ignorance, using, extracting, polluting, and wasting it without an awareness of the resulting conse... mehr anzeigen
 
A series of "unusual" landslides that have released massive amounts of toxic sludge into British Columbia's Peace River are suspected to have been caused by fracking operations in the area.

Thanks to these #fracking operations,plumes of #toxic #waste containing #heavy #metals including #lead, #arsenic, #cadmium, #lithium and #barium, have made their way into the environment. These toxins have #killed #all of the #fish along several kilometers of Brenot and Lynx creeks, which are located just downstream of the community of Hudson's Hope.

The landslides began two years ago and "show no signs of stopping," according to Desmog #Canada.

The growing threat from plastic pollution to human health

Millions of tons of tiny debris from plastic bags, bottles and clothes in the world’s oceans present a serious threat to human health and marine ecosystems.

This is the stark warning issued by the United Nations in a report on the most dangerous environmental problems facing the world today.

GroCycle

Worldwide more than 1.6 billion cups of coffee are drunk each day and in the UK alone this figure is around 80 million every day. A cup of coffee is at the end of a process where less than 1% of the coffee plant is used. Coffee drinkers only value the beans, and after the brewing process most of the coffee grounds up in landfill sites. This is a problem that’s likely to increase as the UK already has more than 15, 000 coffee shops and this number is set to keep on growing.

Taking this waste and turning it into local food is such a simple solution and a huge opportunity. Not only are there sustainability benefits, but it can change people’s attitudes and create other opportunities in the process.

Do you need a new Smartphone or just want one?

The impact on the environment and on the world's resources by the production of smartphones is often underestimated.

We need to produce less, use them longer and recycle the broken ones.
