This week saw another ‘Earth day’ coming and going .
My social medias were full of great words and pledges and I myself have taken part in some ‘on the day’ activism (aka plogging and collecting quite a lot of trash in just two hours by the beach , mainly cigarette butts , cigarette boxes and sweets wrappers ...) .
But I am definitely worried about the ‘carefreeness’ coming packed together with having a lot of influencers showing some positive messages of hope for the planet.
I have a confession to make:
I still haven’t watched ‘Seaspiracy’
And I don’t think I will.
Simply put: I don’t have Netflix, my closest family and bubble doesn’t have it either and there is a pandemic on so, no ‘Netflix and chill’ recommendable..
If I could just buy or rent it, I would, but subscribing? No thanks.

This is what a recent 'promoted post' that came out on my feed this week stated
I admit, this prompted a little 'mea culpa' as I went scrolling on my feed to calculate how many trees I should go out to plant (answer: quite a few...).
Now. This also prompted some research into the effect of our social usage, and sharing (over sharing?) on emissions and climate..
Never like this year we have relied so much on online shopping , and I have already spoken about this so I will avoid redundancy..
But it is inevitable, especially these days, to look in greater details at one aspect of this:
the transport of goods, and in particular shipping.
