NATURE CALLS: 10 WAYS TO HELP MOTHER NATURE

LIVE GREENER. LIVE HAPPIER.

Mother Nature unconditionally offers us everything we need to survive: food, water, medicine, materials for shelter, and even natural cycles such as climate and nutrients. Wherever our eyes reach, this beautiful planet endows us with beautiful places: majestic mountains, hills, beautiful green forests and flowering meadows, emerald-colored lakes, ponds and the depths of the sea. Because it offers us all this unconditionally and unselfishly, and does not demand anything from us, we are obliged to make sure that we keep it that way for our descendants as well.

10 WAYS HOW YOU CAN HELP MOTHER EARTH

  1. Instead of a car, use public transport, a bicycle or walk to your destination.

We are faster at the with the car and it can be more comfortable, but vehicle pollutants are one of the biggest polluters of the environment. Whenever we can and the weather allows it, we are happy to use the bike instead of a car and if the distance is not too long, we go by foot.

2. Use reusable bags while shopping.

When we go shopping, we use our bags for fruits and vegetables. They are much more durable and durable than plastic ones, which are usually used only once and then discarded. Today, they can be bought in almost every store.

3. Self-sufficiency

In Slovenia, almost every house has its own garden. Instead of buying food, at least in the summer, we prefer to grow it ourselves. Of course, such food is incomparably tastier, healthier, while taking care of the garden we are physically active, and working with soil and plants also has a very good effect on our mental health. Avoid using chemicals and pesticides that have a bad effect on the environment and on our health.

4. We support local producers

In Slovenia we have many producers of food, clothing and cosmetics. By purchasing their products, we encourage local farmers and local producers to do their job, take better care of their own health and reduce the carbon footprint in the environment created by longer transports.

5. Picking up garbage in the woods

Whenever we walk in the woods, we can find some rubbish, which we collect and then throw away in suitable bins. We also regularly organize cleaning campaigns and clean our town in groups.

6. Reuse the packaging

Plastic pots from yoghurt can be reused in the garden for small plants. Bottles can be reused to store liquid.

7. Educate regularly

We put great emphasis on education about cosmetic ingredients, as we create natural cosmetics. We buy fewer cosmetics because we make them ourselves. We always go for natural ingredients, which we also grow in our garden

8. We shop in second-hand stores

We have been buying second-hand clothes in second-hand stores for several years, we think recycling old clothes is no longer a taboo today. Every few months, we collects our used clothes, which we donate after. This way we say no to mass consumption of fast fashion. You can buy used clothes on various websites and groups.

9. Collecting herbs in nature

Picking herbs, fruits, flowers in nature has a beneficial effect on our inner peace. On sunny days we like to spend time on meadows, far away from traffic and gather medicinal plants. It is important to know the plants well. Spring is the time to pick wild garlic, dandelion, primrose, daisies, etc.

10. Turn your phone off in nature

Technology can be a helper, but if we use it too often, we can be its slaves. So it’s good to spend valuable time outside in the fresh air instead of on the phone. Our favorite disconnect is somewhere in nature, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

10 NAČINOV ZA BOLJ ZELEN NAČIN ŽIVLJENJA

Mater Zemlja nas vse nesebično hrani, oskrbuje z svežim kisikom, bistro čisto vodo in vsem, kar potrebujemo za življenje. Kamor nam seže oko, nas obdaruje s čudovitimi kraji: z veličastnimi gorami, hribi, čudovitimi zelenimi gozdovi in cvetočimi travniki, smaragdno obaravanimi jezeri, ribniki in morskimi globinami. Ker nam brezpogojno in nesebično nudi vse to, in od nas ne zahteva ničesar, smo dolžni poskrbeti za to, da jo ohranimo takšno tudi za naše potomce. 

10 NAČINOV, KAKO MIDVE POMAGAVA MATER ZEMLJI

1. Namesto avtomobila uporabljava javni prevoz, kolo ali se do cilja odpraviva peš.

Zavedava se, da smo z avtomobilom dosti bolj mobilni, na cilju smo hitreje in je lahko bolj udobno, ampak vožnja z avtomobilom je eden izmed največjih onesnaževalcev okolja. Ko imava možnost, čas in nama vreme to dopušča, z veseljem uporabiva kolo in če pot ni predolga, se odpraviva peš. 

2. Med nakupovanjem uporabljava svoje vreče.

Ko se odpravljava po nakupih, za sadje in zelenjavo uporabiva svoje vrečke. So veliko bolj trajnostne in vzdržljivejše od plastičnih, ki jih ponavadi uporabimo samo enkrat in nato zavržemo. Danes jih lahko kupimo že skoraj v vsaki trgovini.

3. Samooskrba

V Sloveniji ima skoraj vsaka hiša svoj vrt in tako je tudi pri nas. Namesto, da bi hrano kupovali, vsaj v poletnem času, si jo raje pridelamo sami. Seveda je takšna hrana neprimerljivo bolj okusna,  zdrava, medtem ko skrbimo za vrt smo fizično aktivni, delo z zemljo in rastlinami pa zelo dobro vpliva tudi na naše psihično zdravje. Izgobijamo se kemikalijam in pesticidom, ki slabo vplivajo na okolje in posledično tudi na naše zdravje.

4. Podpirava lokalne proizvajalce

V Sloveniji imamo veliko proizvajalcev hrane, oblačil, kozmetike. Z nakupom njihovih izdelkov vzpodbujamo domače kmete in lokalne proizvajalce pri njihovem delu, bolje poskrbimo za lastno zdravje in zmanjšujemo ogljični odtis v okolju, ki nastane pri daljših prevozih.

5. Pobirava smeti v gozdu

Imava to srečo, da v nam bližnjem gozdu ni tako dosti smeti, saj za to že vrsto let poskrbi g. Jesenek. Gospod prostovoljno in brezplačno skrbi za čistočo našega gozda in za to smo mu zelo hvaležni. Na sprehodu po gozdu pa vseeno kdaj najdeva kakšno smet, ki jo potem odvrževa v temu primerne koše. Prav tako redno organiziramo čistilne akcije z društvom in čistimo okolico.

6. Ponovno uporabiva embalažo

Plastične lončke (npr. od kisle smetane, jogurta, ipd.) lahko ponovno uporabimo na vrtu za presajanje. Plastenke lahko ponovno uporabimo za shranjevanje tekočine. 

7. Nenehno izobraževanje

Velik poudarek dajeva na izobraževanje o kozmetičnih sestavinah, saj ustvarjava naravno kozmetiko. Tako kupujeva manj kozmetičnih izdelkov, saj jih izdelujeva sami. Vedno dava prednost naravnim sestavinam, ki jih gojiva tudi na najinem vrtu.

8. Nakupujeva v second hand trgovinah

Že nekaj let kupujeva rabljena oblačila v Second Hand trgovinah, kar danes več ni noben tabu. Vskih nekaj mesecev zbereva svoja rabljena oblačila, ki jih nato podariva naprej. Tako ponovno uporabimo oblačila in ne spodbujava množične potrošnje hitre mode. Ideja za nakup rabljenih oblačil so tudi razne spletne strani ter skupine, kjer najdete rabljene kose za prodajo.

9. Nabiranje hrane v naravi

Nabiranje zelišč, plodov, cvetov  v naravi  blagodejno vpliva na naš notranji mir. Ob sončnih dnevih se podamo na samotne travnike, daleč  stran od prometa in naberemo zdravilne rastline.  Pomembno je, da rastline dobro poznamo. Spomladi je čas za nabiranje čemaža, regrata, trobentic, marjetic, itd. 

10. Namesto na telefon, pojdi raje v naravo. 

Tehnologija je lahko pomočnik, če pa jo prepogosto uporabljamo, smo lahko njeni sužnji. Zato je dobro, da namesto na telefonu, preživimo dragocen čas zunaj na svežem zraku. Najin najljubši odklop je nekje v naravi, daleč stran od mestnega vrveža.
