To discover our critter for this week’s #intertidalthursday, we need to explore the untouched islands outlying Singapore. The Fluted Giant Clam is native to Singapore waters, commonly found in submerged reef and rocky shores of islands untouched by urban development. Adult giant clams anchor themselves to rubble or bury themselves while slightly exposed on the surface. Their fleshy "lips" or mantle harbours photosynthetic zooxanthellae which provides necessary supplementary nutrients to the clam, while filter feeding provides them with the rest. Both locally and throughout their native distribution ranging from South Africa to the Red Sea and to the Marshall Islands, these clams are under threat.

We’re excited to share with you one of our recent, favorite vegan and organic brands @plant.apothecary. Founded by Holly McWhorter and Bjarke Ballisager in 2012, the married couple saw a gap in the market for healthy, vegan bath and skincare products with clean, straightforward package design. @plant.apothecary makes vegan, cruelty-free, certified USDA organic bath and skincare goodies, all with principals of aromatherapy and herbalism.
boxdrive is a logical evolution of the cloud storage services driven by the one thought: “Freedom, privacy and a clean environment are the three main human rights of our time” We’ve made it our goal to protect the digital freedoms of our users by providing a secure remote storage solution hosted on pooled community resources in the interest of freedom, privacy, and environmental friendliness. We aim to propagate the shared economy paradigm into the cloud storage industry, creating the possibility for users to capitalize on latent disk space by renting it out to users without such a surplus. We are building a platform without negative ecological externalities, decreasing the carbon footprint created by data consumption. Rather than borrowing computing resources from a data center, we flip the table to let users lend theirs, therefore, less demand is left over for the proliferation of power-hungry data centers. #boxdrive#cloud#storage#innovative#platform#freedom#privacy#environment#ecology#nature#decentralized#hybrid#p2p#solution#income#source#bxd Перевести
