I wasn’t sure about this post because I’m not a fan of those lists of ‘terrible chemicals’ (note the irony here) whose only purpose seems to be scaremongering. I’ve tried to be fair, consistent and informative, but I’m not a chemist or biochemist, so you are welcome to correct me in the comments section : )

Time flies! Although I haven’t been particularly active over here due to my very stressing work situation, I still have had visits and comments from interested people. Thanks! Do you want to know how was this second year? Keep reading…
Don’t be fooled. Caring for the environment is not about buying products marketed as eco-friendly, organic or sustainable. It’s about producing less crap. And to produce less trash we should consume less. That simple and that hard. Then, whatever you end up buying should be mindful, should be sustainable, but that’s another topic and, in my opinion, of secondary relevance. Besides, a lot of eco-friendly products are not much more than marketing and a green tag. Without more ado, here you have a list of 5 things that, in my opinion, are only useful to create more CRAP.
This tiny botanic garden usually doesn’t make it to London tourist guides, but it’s a kinda quick, and very obliged stop for botany geeks like me. If you don’t know whether or not it’s worth a visit during a probably quick and packed trip to the city, I’ll tell you here what’s about and you decide ; )
We are lucky today. The Earth Overshoot Day has come almost a week earlier this year compared to 2016. We have beaten our own record again, as the 2016 Earth Overshoot Day was on the 8th of August, and this year it’s today, on the 2nd. We are getting better at this. In case I’m being too fine with the irony, I’m going to tell you what the hell is the Earth Overshoot Day, why should we worry about it, and what’s more important, how to reduce our ecological footprint.
