Cashew-waste possible bio-degradable sunscreen in our future


http://www.wits.ac.za/news/latest-news/research-news/2019/2019-08/wits-green-chemists-find-a-way-to-turn-cashew-nut-shells-into-sunscreen.html

With current concerns over the use of fossil resourcesfor chemical synthesis of functional molecules and the effect ofcurrent UV absorbers in sunscreens have on the ecosystem, wedescribe a xylochemical synthesis of different classes of aro-matic UV absorbers utilizing cashew nut shell liquid as a non-edible bio-renewable carbon source. Hydroxybenzophenones,xanthones, triazines, and flavones were synthesized startingfrom cardanol or anacardic acid. Several compounds exhibitedfavorable UVA and UVB absorption characteristics.

Today I went to see a friend who lives on the other side of Utrecht. I decided to go by bike this time (about 12 km) and when I was riding on the Catharijnesingel, near Central Station but on the other side where I don't go that often, I saw this. A giant whale made of plastic waste. Impressive!

Check or call your local fresh #water provider. Usually tab water is much more healthy and clean then bottled water. It costs 0.01% of what you pay for water in bottles and after a few minutes the fresh drink becomes #plastic #waste in your hand.

Get a fancy drinking bottle, #KleanKanteen or #Nalgene are environmental friendly and of high end quality. And #TurtleApproved.

Drink tab water and reduce your plastic waste! And drink 4l at least during the hot days. Better more then too less.

🇮🇹-Abbiamo deciso di pubblicare questo video per mostrare i danni che oggetti semplici come una busta di plastica possono provocare agli animali.
Nella nostra vita quotidiana cerchiamo di ridurre il nostro impatto ambientale non acquistando plastica usa e getta.
Anche una busta in meno può fare la differenza.

🇬🇧-We have decided to publish this video to show the damage that simple objects like a plastic bag can cause to animals.
In our daily life we try to reduce our environmental impact by not buying disposable plastic.
Even one less bag can make the difference.

Only rebellion will prevent an ecological apocalypse


George Monbiot (The Guardian)

No one is coming to save us. Mass civil disobedience is essential to force a political response.

Had we put as much effort into preventing environmental catastrophe as we’ve spent on making excuses for inaction, we would have solved it by now. Everywhere I look, I see people engaged in furious attempts to fend off the moral challenge it presents.

The commonest current excuse is this: “I bet those protesters have phones/go on holiday/wear leather shoes.” In other words, we won’t listen to anyone who is not living naked in a barrel, subsisting only on murky water. Of course, if you are living naked in a barrel we will dismiss you too, because you’re a hippie weirdo. Every messenger, and every message they bear, is disqualified on the grounds of either impurity or purity. (...)

The political class, as anyone who has followed its progress over the past three years can surely now see, is chaotic, unwilling and, in isolation, strategically incapable of addressing even short-term crises, let alone a vast existential predicament. Yet a widespread and wilful naivety prevails: the belief that voting is the only political action required to change a system. (...)

The media, with a few exceptions, is actively hostile. Even when broadcasters cover these issues, they carefully avoid any mention of power, talking about environmental collapse as if it is driven by mysterious, passive forces, and proposing microscopic fixes for vast structural problems. The BBC’s Blue Planet Live series exemplified this tendency. (...)

Catastrophe afflicts people now and, unlike those in the rich world who can still afford to wallow in despair, they are forced to respond in practical ways. In Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, devastated by Cyclone Idai, in Syria, Libya and Yemen, where climate chaos has contributed to civil war, in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador,, where crop failure, drought and the collapse of fisheries have driven people from their homes, despair is not an option. Our inaction has forced them into action, as they respond to terrifying circumstances caused primarily by the rich world’s consumption. (...)

Our system – characterised by perpetual economic growth on a planet that is not growing – will inevitably implode. The only question is whether the transformation is planned or unplanned. Our task is to ensure it is planned, and fast. We need to conceive and build a new system based on the principle that every generation, everywhere has an equal right to enjoy natural wealth. (...)

The time for excuses is over. The struggle to overthrow our life-denying system has begun.

Impact of food waste campaigns muted, but point toward right direction -- ScienceDaily


They did a study at two univerity dining halls.
Our local university in Germany was also for some meals a take as many as you want food, but to fight food waste they rely both on posters etc. about food waste and they provide portions/ready made plates. In practice this means there is someone behind the counter who puts the main dish on your plate. In addtion, you can get pre portioned bowls of various side dish.
Still there is some food waste, but I think it helped a lot to reduce it.
