Eco Living Weekly celebrates our collective efforts to live more harmoniously on Mother Earth, and walks hand-in-hand each week with @ecotrain's other curation, Eco Village News. It's a "best of" from posts on the steem blockchain this past week which have used the #ecotrain tag.
What kind of content will get you curated here? Practical, thoughtful, creative and personal posts about literally Making the World a Better Place. From recycling, art, natural health and organic-permaculture to eco-travel, creating change, spirituality, art-poetry-music, natural food preparation and growing-storing-preserving your food and natural medicine. Please attribute quoted material and images which aren't your own, and be thoughtful. You need to use the #ecotrain tag to be considered for an upvote. And please make at least part of your post in the English language - we MANUALLY curate so we need to be able to understand the gist of your post.
We DON'T require you to delegate to @ecotrain, but we'd ask you to please consider it. You can take it back at any time, no questions or stress. Delegation is nothing more than a LOAN of your SP so we can give YOU juicier upvotes. It's a no brainer, really. We also don't REQUIRE you to upvote or support others (all too school-marmy for us!) but, again, we'd ask you to simply give to others what you' like to receive, which is a generous upvote and a thoughtful comment.
MUCH APPRECIATION for the wonderful posts this week.
Please: read, upvote, comment, resteem the posts we've selected for you. And start writing YOUR next @ecotrain post.
Planting superfoods together as a community? @abdulhamids shows us young and old, working together, to plant the amazing superfood, drumstick tree - moringa - in rural Indonesia just outside of Bandung.
Eco Living means eating what Mother Earth offers you from her bounty. For @senorcoconut, this week, it was acorns!! Follow his process from gathered, fallen acorns to yummy gluten free pancakes. This is a skill and a level of know-how many of us are going to need sooner than later.
Think you don't have space to grow a garden and help green the world? Check out what @olivia08 is doing in Saudi Arabia in the midst of seriously hot urban concrete with some space her boss has allowed her to use since 2009.
Convenience seems to be the divergent point between eco-living and rampant, destructive capitalism. @eco-alex asks some great questions about convenience and happiness, and challenges us to consider the price of convenience.
Freshly tapped organic maple syrup? Oh yeah!! @thebigsweed adn @farm-mom have been out in the woods showing us how to collect fresh syrup from the sugar maples. Wow! This is an eco-living definitely worth having! Yum!
So much focus on PLANTING trees, does anyone even go back and see if any of them survived? @thegreens did! And it's looking great! 7 years after they planted trees and shrubs at CBC Menda Primary School in Bamenda, Cameroon, West Africa, they went back for a look-see. Check it out!
Cape Town, India, Thailand.... many places on Earth are facing dwindling river systems and water issues. @imransoudagar draws our attention to the incredibly valuable resource of fresh water.
Respecting and appreciating the Beings we share this Earthschool with is a huge part of balanced eco-living. @sallybeth23 gets us up close and personal with teh fascinating wolf spider.
