All that glitters is certainly not gold

I posted this originally close to Christmas 2020. It might still be too late this year but if you haven’t already, it might be worth considering how damaging your cards, decorations and presents are, not only to the wider environment but to you, your family and friends

A bit late with this post but still something to consider for the future. Glitter is basically plastic and as it falls off cards and other objects and materials that it is applied to it will enter the environment. The problem is that almost if not all environments on Earth are polluted by micro and nano sized plastics particles. The soil, the oceans and the air. Sure, one of two particles might not kill you directly or quickly but this plastic pollution is finding it’s way up through the food chains including those of plants and accumulating in our bodies. These small pieces of plastic can join with other chemicals and pathogens so potentially can cause great harm, even to humans. It may look great but for life on Earth glitter probably isn’t.

Have you enjoyed your plastic meal?

I posted this back in December 2020. It’s as relevant now as it was then as we are still poisoning ourselves.

This is an excellent visual article on how much plastic we are all consuming. What we need to know is what are the long term health effects because of the pathogens and other chemicals that the micro and nano sized particles can carry with them. Where do they end up? Which organs and can they cross the blood brain barrier? This isn’t the way we should be living our lives and it certainly isn’t sustainable yet the fossil fuel corporations want to increase plastic production. We need to stop them. https://www.aljazeera.com/gallery/2020/12/11/in-pictures-how-much-plastic-are-you-eating

The plants will replace us and it’s not the Triffids

I first posted this over a couple of years ago. Not much as changed as far as we can see but those tiny plants are growing all the same albeit very slowly.

This picture is of some moss, or maybe something else, growing on the wall outside our flat. It doesn’t seem much but if the human race did go extinct through its stupidity or another life form such as a virus taking us out then these plants would start to take over. I’ll call them moss for the time being in my ignorance of that part of nature. Just as they would growing on a natural rock surface they would open up further cracks. Larger plants would take a foothold by perhaps a seed blown on the wind or one dropped by a bird or an animal. The building would crack further until it collapsed. The plants would continue turning the building rubble with the aid of rain and atmospheric gases into soil that would build up later by layer, year by year, millennia by millennia . A visiting alien in the future would just see depending on the physical conditions a mature wood or forest or meadow or prairie but no sign of humanity. Maybe the visiting aliens would drill into the surface and depending how long it had been since our passing would find the thin line in the geological record that represented us and all that we did. Treat the Earth with respect and tread lightly upon it.

Think of me – I like wild gardens – organic cotton bag

This is a Scientist and Philosopher organic cotton bag that we have created using a Teemill base design. In the UK, in many cases, a garden is a very neatly arranged place and sometimes just a sterile lawn surrounded by 6 foot fences. Since gardens have replaced what were once wild places they need to be let go a bit and have at least an “untidy” corner. All sorts of wildlife will really appreciate it. Fences need to have holes cut in the bottom of them to let hedgehogs and other creatures through creating super hedgehog highways. You don’t need chemicals to get rid of your snails and slugs you need a hedgehog. We all need to start living more within the environment and not on top of it.

Check out how these products are made using organic cotton. We need to live in not just a sustainable way but one that causes the least environmental loading on the planet. You can even send these items back to be made into new things when you have finished with them.

The design is also available as a T-shirt in men’s and women’s styles and for children. You can see this bag and our other designs in our Teemill shop, https://junagarh-media.teemill.com/product/hedgehog-and-wild-garden-shopping-bag/.

A tree is for life and not just for Christmas – a repeat of previous years

Posted originally in January 2020 and again before Christmas 2021. If you haven’t already, think about whether you need a dead pesticide covered tree in your home that is adding to the problem of climate change.

January 2020

This Christmas think about decorating a local living tree. Cutting down trees for the short season of Christmas is environmentally damaging and disturbing ecologically. If it continues to grow it will soak up more of our CO2 emissions. Literally whole communities of animals, birds and insects will be made homeless. This tradition hasn’t existed for that long and you don’t have to do it just because somebody else does it.

A moment of our time – Part 1

This is the start of a piece of work I wrote on what happens in the briefest of moments. I’m re-blogging the different parts.

The moment passes quickly and another moment follows and then another.

Now read about what happened in that moment.

Did you define that moment by putting the human terms of a local date and time on that moment?

In that moment you and I shared it with billions of other humans but also countless other organisms and physical processes.

More to follow……….

Christmas 2022, a repeat? The Christmas tree chain saw massacre and it’s not just in Texas

I wrote and published this blog below almost a year ago now and in a month’s time it will be Christmas again. Since then we’ve had COP26 take place in Glasgow warning us that devastating climate change could arrive much more quickly than first envisaged. If we want to tackle climate change then one way to do so would be for communities to come together to plant Christmas trees in their villages, town and cites. That way they can be decorated each year reducing CO2 emissions, plastic pollution, energy use and excessive consumption on a finite planet.

Many of us have enjoyed them in the past. It seems a perfectly natural thing to do but buying one of the trees in this photo means bringing a dying thing into our houses. We rarely think about the fact that where these trees are grown was perhaps a natural woodland or forest before but that it has now become a mono culture for a human tradition. The original land cleared and nature disrupted with many living creatures killed or chased away before this one species planted. By removing what was there before CO2 was released adding to our greenhouse gas emissions. Then the growing of these trees starts and they take a number of years to grow before they can be harvested for the single Christmas season. In that time in the majority of cases large amounts of pesticides will be used to ensure that the Christmas trees we buy are bug free and look good. When they are harvested and in the US alone that’s between 25 and 30 million each Christmas, https://www.beyondpesticides.org/programs/center-for-community-pesticide-and-alternatives-information/pesticide-free-holidays/christmas#:~:text=According%20to%20the%20Center%20for,carbaryl%2C%20chlorpyrifos%2C%20and%20dimethoate., the fossil fuel chain saw massacre begins. At that time all the birds, animals and insects that have survived the chemical onslaught either die or are chased away. Harvesting Christmas trees makes a lot of creatures homeless. Then there’s all the fossil fuel used getting them from where they grew to our houses and after Christmas all the CO2 released when they decompose or worse still are burnt. That’s not to forget that if they were still growing they would still be soaking up CO2 and as a generalisation older trees soak up more CO2. So overall buying a dying tree is not very environmentally friendly so why not celebrate this Christmas by decorating or just giving a hug to a local tree. They are all working damn hard to fix the damage that us humans are doing to the planet.
