The Fincher’s Self-sufficient and Debt-free … an amazing example to us all!

Leave a comment

This video from Next World TV is an example to us all. The Fincher’s have created their own farm from scratch, in turn they have achieved self-sufficiency. I often rant on about becoming self-sufficient myself, seeing videos like this proves it is possible for the average Joe. Admittedly the Fincher’s had the advantage of starting up when land was cheap, but they are still an inspiration to me and hopefully you too! 

Even with a small space like a backyard you can become self-sufficient. With a small greenhouse and a few pots you can supply your family with most of your daily vegetables. This video shows with a little bit of trial and error, determination and inspiration self-sufficiency is possible. 

Enjoy!

World Elephant Day 2014… !

Leave a comment

When I heard it was world Elephant day I thought I had to do something to mark it!

Elephant are my favourite animal, I have been fortunate enough to see both the African and Indian Elephants free and in their own habitat . They are an incredible and majestic animal, looking in their eye you feel the knowledge and understanding they have.

We can learn a lot from their behaviour and community orientated living. It so important we don’t destroy them and in turn the whole ecosystem!

There are many organisations out there trying to protect and saving the Elephants one I support is ‘Space For Giants‘ (there are many more).

So here is my contribution to all those wondering Elephants out there:

Please take a moment to search and read a little about these majestic animals today! With a little understanding and coming together we can help Elephants to live side by side with humans!

The sad news hit us today of the death of Robin Williams!

He was the comedy of my childhood, from Saturday night live to Mork and Mindy to Good Morning Vietnam to Mrs Doubtfire.

He shaped a generations humour and will be sadly missed. I hope he’s now in a better place!

Listening to the rainforest

This is a brilliant scheme and I fully support it !!!

Not only does it protect and potentially save the rainforest, but it provides the tranquil sounds of the rainforest to you phone. This must be supported and could prove to be available tool in saving our worlds forest! Please check out the website Rainforest connection!

The potential to expand this scheme is also great, using it to highlight the point showing exactly how much illegal logging it going on. Let really hope it takes off and gets the funding it needs.

A few months ago I wrote about how satellite data is being used to keep an eye on the world’s forests, and identify illegal logging. Global Forest Watch is a great project, but it can only display the results of logging once it’s too late. The trees have already been cut down. Rainforest Connection is a new project that goes one better.

The project takes old smartphones and re-purposes them, weather-proofing them and fitting them out with solar panels. They are then hidden in tree tops in the forest, programmed to listen out for the sound of chainsaws. If they hear the distinctive sound of tree-felling in progress, they send an alert. Rangers can immediately respond.

When the project was piloted in Indonesia, rangers were able to get to an illegal logging site fast enough to catch the poachers in the act. Further demonstration projects are planned, one in…

A revolutionary move in the way we shop, yet so simple…

1 Comment

I have stated in ‘Supermarket’s, Are They Really Super ?‘ my dislike for supermarkets. One of the major issues for me though is the shear amount of waste that is produce unnecessarily by them. This comes in the form of packaging, which to be honest we don’t really need, do we? We all know that plastic is harmful and the types used in food wrapping generally can’t be easily recycled. The main reason for the packaging is to advertise and draw you to the products, so is kind of pointless.

From the sustainability front I’ve always wondered on an alternative and why supermarkets have not moved towards this. I know it’s not the supermarkets that dictate the packaging of products, but they could influence the change if they decided too. So when I came across this video from Next World TV I just had to post it.

 

It’s such a simple idea that I can’t belive it’s not common place already. This is definitely a system which I hope takes over and becomes the norm. Personally I think the shelves at home look nicer when its just clear jars and you can seen the produce inside, i’m forever keeping jar and tubs to store my food in. Another advantage is you can buy just what you need! This again reduces waste on another level, as you are less likely to buy too much just because the package comes in that size. It is also kind of a novelty to fill your own tub out of a dispenser, maybe thats just me but I really quite enjoy the process!

This is such a simple and logical idea and could really revolutionise the way we shop for food. I really hope this takes of and all credit to the girls for doing it. I wish them the best of luck and home to see it on English shores very soon.

Enjoy!

Heysham Moss Link: CTC briefing

I’m always keen to support cycling routes! I myself and don’t have a car licence, and cycle or walk everywhere. With the public transport coast spiralling to insane prices, anyone would think the government wanted to stop people using it.

We need more cycle paths and routes, there is plenty of space to achieve this! With the redevelopment of canals two birds could be killed with one stone, just a thought
