This blog is not a food blog, but I occasionally write about healthy eating and food waste as a part of my green living adventure. Today’s blog post is about how my husband and I feasted on leftovers – buffet style. 😎 Link in bio! #food#foodwaste#recipes#indianfood#leftovers
Teared me up seeing these cute kittens. What are they saying? 😭 #repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Video by @joelsartore | At just four-weeks-old, these two leopard cat kittens (Prionailurus bengalensis) are lucky to be alive! Like most wild cat species, mothers hide their young in a quiet location while they're hunting and return later to nurse them. These babies were found hiding in a field that humans had started to burn for agriculture. Unfortunately, humans sometimes find these kittens and wrongly presume that they are abandoned or orphaned and pick them up, but in this case it was absolutely the right thing to do or both would have been killed by the fire. A caring Cambodian woman found them just in time and they were transferred for hand-rearing to the @accb_cambodia, a dedicated conservation and rescue center near the ancient temples of Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity regularly receives leopard cats and other wildlife in need and tries to rehabilitate them in order to be released back to the wild if at all possible. Although leopard cats are very cute, they don’t make good pets because they are wild and don’t become tame. It is always a very emotional moment to say goodbye and to release a rehabilitated leopard cat back to the wild. Follow @joelsartore to see a portrait of these babies. Check out @ACCB_cambodia to learn about the vital work they do to save wildlife, and click the link in their bio to help save these precious animals!
You throw trash, it ends up in the seas. Sea creatures end up eating it and die. #repost @wildlifefirst with @get_repost ・・・ This plastic polar bear sends a pretty clear message on our ocean's plastics - Via BBC World Service
#repost @humansofny with @get_repost ・・・ “These types of shops are notorious for cheating people. A lot of them use fake parts to fix your car. But I take pride in doing things right. And most of my profits go back into the business. I could stash all my money in the bank, but I’d rather use it to create jobs. I support five employees with this shop. I handpicked them myself. All of them were being paid horribly at their old jobs. They were living in horrible conditions. They had families to support but were barely making enough to feed themselves. So I paid them double, gave them shelter, and gave them food. If the work is getting done, they can have as much freedom as they want. I don’t give them metrics. The most important thing is that they’re happy.” (Dhaka, Bangladesh)
#repost @futuretechlab with @get_repost ・・・ “80% of toys end up in landfill, incinerators or the ocean while 90% are made of plastic and are used for just 6 months on average.” @Ecobirdy have found a solution, by creating colorful plastic furniture made without harmful chemicals, from recycled plastic toys. By finding more creative recycling solutions we can minimize resource usage and waste and create long-lasting products that can be recycled.
#repost @pari.network with @get_repost ・・・ Suicides are about the living, not the dead. In society's eyes, Kamlabai is a `widow.' In her own, she's a small farmer trying to make a living and support her family. She is also one of about one lakh women across the country who've lost their husbands to farm suicides since the 1990s. Link in bio. #suicides#agriculture#farmers#dalits#caste#wardha#maharashtra
