Small business impact

Every individual has a moral obligation to make this world a better place. That might sound naive and idealistic, but that doesn’t make it less so. Looking at climate change, the corona pandemic, and the grown polarisation in our society, it’s clear that we don’t always handle a crisis that well. Humans are very agile …

Good on you

Being a sustainability seeker means constantly looking for brands that actually deliver on their promises. But the tsunami of the increasing number of labels doesn’t make it easier. Greenwashing is still a growing problem. Looking at commercials today, it seems that every company has sustainability on its mind. But do they really? Even though we …

Circular digital economy

When we talk about a circular economy, we usually talk about physical products and their resources. We look for solutions to reuse, recycle, or share them. In the digital world, we need a lot of technology and electronic equipment. But these complex products are extremely difficult to recycle. The consequence is that this sector is …

Modesty, a lost virtue?

You can’t measure success by the money you spend. So stop showing off your lifestyle on social media. In a world where the top 1% holds half the world’s net wealth, we question their motives and hold them responsible for problematic overconsumption. They are showing us a world that we can’t afford. But we ignore …

17 Sustainable Lifestyle Goals

In a previous post, I talked about how you can contribute to the 17 SDGs from the United Nations. They are important to lift humanity out of poverty and put the planet back on course towards sustainability. But every big change starts small.

17 Sustainable Lifestyle Goals

Your personal contribution to the SDGs

Back in 2015, The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were formally adopted by the United Nations. Over the next 15 years, the 17 SDGs would form an action plan to lift humanity out of poverty and put the planet back on course towards sustainability. These goals, which are one and indivisible, reflect the three dimensions of …

Dare Mighty Things

The origin of the phrase “Dare mighty things” dates back to a speech by Theodore Roosevelt in 1899. It’s a hidden (and not so hidden) message still used by Nasa when embarking on a new space mission. Unfortunately, our space dreams are under much pressure from many skeptics. With only scientific reasons of why we …

Greenwashing, the fight against eco as a brand

The year 2020 is almost coming to an end, and it might set a new record as the hottest year recorded in history. It’s not an achievement we need to celebrate. The need to make a change is long overdue. Every individual can do their part in the fight against climate change, discrimination, oppression, slavery, …

Eat (your) green(s)

A plant-based diet is without a doubt still the greenest option. You can reduce your impact on the environment and slash your carbon footprint by skipping meat and dairy products from your diet. However, there is no diet that can be 100% eco proof. Some popular foods within the vegan culture can still be environmentally …
