If you have followed a sustainable lifestyle for a while , you may be familiar with the ‘ no-poo’ methods. And if you followed me , you know that I have been shampoo free for just over 4 years now..
But why ?
In the last year I have really focused part of my work into looking at ways in which nature can play a role in climate mitigation.
If you remember, I spoke on a podcast about the role of shellfish and wrote a piece about carbon credits , and natural capital or better 'how nature can enter economy'. I would suggest to start there if you haven't already, to grasp some of the concepts.
It's summer time here in Italy, a warm summer (not necessarily climate change fault, I mean, it's often warm this time of the year), and most of us are still working from home. If you are like me, you are a bit desperate about not being able to find refuge in a cool library or in the office.
This said, I have learnt some tips and tricks that may help you, if, like me you are without air conditioning (or decide you don't want to use it)
Today I want to talk about Labels
We are so quick at labelling things - it is in our nature .
Labels are all around us , from those we impose on each other to the physical ones we see on clothes , food and other objects on the market. Labels are often perceived as indices of quality. Labels are there to indicate some property of the product . It may be ‘free’ of something , ‘safe’ for something. The most well known labels must be the organic and the fair trade . But what / who is behind those ?
And are all the labels to be trusted ?
I want to give a few examples, and bear with me if most of these are marine related but there are plenty of terrestrial equivalents.
