Thanks David, I have added a link to Fossil Free SA to the blog where I talk about taking action by divesting.
Couldn’t agree more Marilyn! In nature everything is cyclical and fed back into the system as a resource for other organisms, we definitely need to think the same way. And I was just thinking that if I had to add a number 16 to this list it would be to Share Surplus – save seeds and share, share surplus food grown. Letting plants go to seed is so important!
Oh absolutely agree that not everyone can be vegan, I’m not vegan myself, that is why I specifically said reduce meat consumption, meat should be treat, the planet cannot sustain everyone eating meat every day. Have a look at Spekboom on Facebook, they are growing spekboom to offset carbon. I’m also involved in a school planting project where we will be planting spekboom to offset carbon, I will mail you the details when the campaign is live.

I couldn’t agree more. I had a mentorship Skype with one of the students at Imagine Scholar this past week and realised that this is a powerful way to contribute to the empowerment of our youth. Imagine if we could set up a network of mentors with some funding!
Thanks Andrea! That doesn’t surprise me at all ;) Life changing isn’t it?
That’s so interesting Eleanor, there must be many cultures all over the world actively not using nappies, it does just seem an obvious way of doing things that we have simply forgotten. Thanks for sharing! and well done for not even giving up on cloth nappies when travelling, that is dedication!
Excellent tip, thanks Lisl!
Thanks Ralph! Good to know I’m on track. Love to all of you Down Under.
