The Golden Nuggets! Highlights From The ecoTrain This week.

in ecotrain •  last year 


Here are some of the gems and nuggets of eco-green wisdom and insight shared under the #ecotrain tag this week on the steem blockchain. Truly, it was a tough call to choose only 9!!

@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.

Each week @eco-alex and @artemislives scour the steemit blockchain for people using the tag, and upvote-comment-curate in the best way they know how.

I'm glad we have ecotrain where we are encouraged to share environmental related posts. I like how I can post abt these topics here in Steemit and then have a cherry on the cake too. Feels great. Hehe.

Thanks for the feature! ❤

You asked a GREAT question. Sometimes I think we need less people posting about answers and solutions, and more people asking strong and relevant questions. @eco-alex is the Master of posing a tough question! In asking the question, we begin to effect the process of change.

Oh thank you. 😄 I guess yeah, I agree. 👍
