The Origin of 365 Ways...

I came across this amazing book by Phillippe Bourseiller when i was in Denmark close to a year ago: "For the past 15 years, Phillippe Bourseiller has photographed nature from every angle: from the eruption of the volcano Pinatubo to the great deserts of ice and sand, he has captured the hidden colours and breathtaking lights of our planet. But our contemporary way of life threatens this fragile beauty. To encourage more restraint, Philippe Bourseiller teams 365 photographs with a daily ecological action. Each of the initiatives is accompanied by facts and statistics that illustrate the threats to the environment posed by our behavious, and demonstrate the beneficial consequences of the recommended actions. Each day reveals the image of a wonder of nature along with the guidelines to preserve our planet. Through the pages of 365 Ways to Save the Earth, a truly ethical way of life takes shape." Starting from today, i would like to post each inspiring page according to the days on the yearly calendar (supposed to start from jan, but...i'll catch up!). Hopefully, you'll look at everyday a little differently after this...

Lifestyle - Act now to preserve the environment. Make the first move, do not wait for someone else to do it.

Icebergs, Greenland

It is easy to say to yourself that one small polluting or harmful action will not endanger the earth's future. However, when these small actions are repeated across the world, they build up to create problems of dramatic proportions. Similarly, one small, isolated action to preserve the environment will not improve matters on its own, but if these actions are repeated everyday by millions of people, they will have a significant effect. If the majority adopt environmental practices as a new way of life, they will contribute to preserving the earth and its riches for future generations.
Do not wait for friends or neighbours to set an example. Make the first move yourself. They might be waiting for you!
