bee keeping

Hello hello!

Nice week? I’ve had a busy one, deep in work, family and friends.  There’s definitely a lot to be said for trying to find some kind of balance in your life.

I’ll get straight to it – there has been a lot of really good environmental news this week, that will make you feel good.  High fives all round people!

This week’s links:

1.  Tesco is to remove the best before dates from fruit and vegetables in a bid to cut consumer food waste.  Here’s the difference between use by and best before dates, in case you need some clarification.

2.  Ikea and India are both to eliminate single-use plastic by 2020 and 2022 respectively.

3.  Even the Pope is putting pressure on oil companies.

4.  Let’s all move to Estonia.  I hope this scheme to make public transport free works because it sounds amazing.  I’d love to see something like that being introduced in the UK

5.  An endangered mountain gorilla population has increased in size by 25%.  Proof that conservation measures do work!

Also from around the internet:

6.  The problem with the term “ethical fashion”.

7.  A fascinating read into the future of food, and the scientists battling climate change, water scarcity, and population growth to find new ways to feed the future

8.  On sharing food with strangers.  Is this something you would do?

9.  The sea is feeding human garbage back to us.  Yum.  If there was ever an argument for not eating seafood, this is it.

10.  Finally, bee saving paperthat works like an energy drink for bees (or you could just make bees a simple energy saving drink).

Have a lovely Sunday!  I hope you find some balance in the week ahead.
