Gems and nuggets of eco-green wisdom and insight shared under the #ecotrain tag this week on the steem blockchain - here they are!! Freshly dug and enjoyed, and sparkling in the sunlight ready for your appreciation and engagement. We truly are an amazing global community - and growing with new contributors every week.
@ecotrain is a artisan-hand-curated community built around the concept of gift economy and actively making our world a better place. We engage around sustainability, eco-green, permaculture, the glories of Mother Earth, inner transformation, alternative energy, earthships & earth building, recycling - in short, all the practical and conceptual underpinnings of paradigm shift.

Our ever-practical @ecotrain action man, @anttn, put his money where his mouth is and is offering SBI and upvotes if you contribute your ideas on what YOU can do to dial back our climate crisis and make sure we can all breathe. Generous to a fault, @anttn is very clear that BAMBOO is one solution, and explains why.
That question we ALL need to be talking about continued to find its voice through @mountainjewel this week: "Is there anything that will save us ?" What do you think? At the very least please weigh in on that critical, global discussion with a comment!
While we collectively feel despair and impotence watching the Amazon Rainforest ablaze and the climate change discussion get bogged down, @briarch gets down and dirty on the diaper discussion and reminds us that, actually, we make the biggest impacts to the environment on the home front, right where we are, individually. Change everything starts here, with us - with personal choices.
We all need to be empowered with so much debilitating global heaviness, and no one does that better than @steemmatt. He shows us again the gold-standard of gift economy in action - collecting someone else's 'junk', gifting it to friends in need and being rewarded with a yummy home-cooked meal. He takes that old-stone-to-make-soup story to new heights. Get ready to be inspired! More stuff kept out of landfills? Yes please.
In the midst of turbulence, change, grief, life, death and questions, @trucklife-family takes us back to the heart of everything: what we know and what we believe.
I know that I am responsible for the way I live my life, for the choices I make and the actions I take.
Treasures (like nuggets?), repurposing, gifting, community, environment and appreciation are all tied up in the #treasurefinds tag that @riverflows is promoting - and personally rewarding! Initiative and action are critical during times of paradigm change, and we encourage all of you who have FOUND TREASURES to consider sharing and writing under the tag to encourage others. Buying new and wasting $ resources we need for education? Nah. Get your treasure on and tell us about it.
Another way we can actively be involved in supporting and protecting our environment? @cristina-madart shares with us the magic of her local forest, and the responsibility of forest patrolling for fire prevention. Live near a forest? You can do this! Gorgeous pics - be inspired by the dog helping. :)
Forests, wild-life and allowing nature to create her own balance - @wildhomesteading gives us a serious and informed look at why sometimes there needs to be species exclusion and how it can help to boost other struggling species. Rewilding is a big and important part of us restoring the damage we have collectively created on this planet.
Keeping dangerous chemicals, antibiotics, hormones and steroids OUT of our bodies and the environment requires you to know, understand and have access to affordable alternatives. @porcheberry shows us again how our intersection with natural medicine, parenting and small conscious choices is where it's at to begin to change the world and make it a better place - her article about black seed is truly awesome and shows us how simple it can be, and that the eco-green shifts start at home!
