Did you watch "Don't Look UP" on Netflix?
Last month, it became the most popular movie in the U.S. and was the talk of the town. When I saw it, I felt that it appealed against climate change. If you tell people the correct numbers, they won't understand, and if you seduce great people, they will only be interested in profit. Having studied sustainability at the University of Illinois and Erasmus University Rotterdam, my suggestion is to bring sustainability to people who can enjoy it and make it a habit.
Please join the #20sustainableacts, which we are planning with this in mind.
The #20sustainableacts that to live more sustainably
lifestyles for the seasons and cultures. I have made 20 illustrations of my ideas, and I would like you to put them on your refrigerator or set them as your standby screen so that you can live your life with sustainability in mind. In addition, if you participate in this project, you can win some sustainable goods! Please come and join us!
1, Choose eco-friendly cleaners.
I think better option to use all-natural cleaners than chemical cleaners because eco-friendly cleaners are better for our health and the planet's health.
2, Let's use a biodegradable sponge and kitchen cloth!
How can we save the oceans by using biodegradable sponges? My absolute option is Skoy Japan. By using a more earth-friendly product like this, we can keep the microplastics out of the ocean and contribute to the earth's sustainability.
3, Let's buy local honey!
How can we contribute to the local hives and the ecosystem sustained by the bees by purchasing local honey?
4, Let's be conscious of the materials we use to wrap a gift.
How can we wrap presents with minimum wrappings in a creative way?
5, Use rental, second-hand, or share winter sports wears.
In the winter season, we want to enjoy skiing and snowboard. But only a few times to chance to wear the ski wear. So good idea to use for rental, second hands, or share!
6, Bring our reusable water bottles for outings!
How can we save lives in the water by minimizing the use of plastic?
7, Bring our reusable shopping bags to stores!
How can we prevent plastic bags from contaminating the oceans?
8, Let's share the messages from the #20sustainableacts through SNS!
How can we encourage people to start something to contribute to the SDGs while keeping the practice fun and enjoyable for everyone? How can we encourage just one more friend to shit their lifestyle to lessen the weight of the burden of global climate emergency and social issues that the humanity of this earth is bearing?
Let us think about how our fun ideas will matter for our safe and sustainable future. Let us keep this a simple, fun, and doable activity that allows us all to the global goals to achieve sustainability.
9, Choose seasonal foods!
Great idea for your health and health of the planet because when you choose to eat with the seasonal foods, you automatically choose local food, which boosts the local economy and cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions.
10, Help save the Tigers.
Tiger populations have declined by around 95% since the beginning of the 20th century. The tiger is officially classed as endangered by the IUCN. Let's donat for WWF.
11. Let's share our ideas about sustainability openly with our family, friends, and colleagues!
How can we maximize the influence of one individual?
12, Avoid using microplastics.
Microplastics occur in the environment as a consequence of plastic pollution. Microplastics are present in various products, from cosmetics to synthetic clothing to plastic bags and bottles. So we avoid using microplastics products.
13, Using recycled paper.
It helps reduce water and energy use and saves landfill space for items we cannot recycle.
14, Let's do meditation and Zazen!
15, Let's use beeswax wraps!
How can we minimize the use of plastic items by choosing reusable containers that we can wash many times? How can we avoid using foam, which takes thousands of years to dissolve? How does avoiding the use of Styrofoam lead us to sustainable life?
16, Let's use a bamboo toothbrush!
How can we use recycled wood, bamboo, and cork to minimize plastics to keep the chemicals from contacting food?
Bamboos are attracting attention as a sustainable material that grows fast and requires neither fertilization nor human help. Nagaruru Bamboo is my recommendation as a fashionable and eco-friendly toothbrush.
17, Let's use a hot water bottle/foot warmer!
Japanese have been using Yutanpo, a hot water bottle to keep them warm. It's much more eco-friendly than air conditioners. It's easy on our body too!
18, Is your sun protection Reef-Friendly? Let's choose Reef-friendly sun protection.
19, Avoid getting water in plastic-bottle.
20, Let's extend our thoughts and love to the earth!
How can we share the sense of happiness and groundedness by extending our love to the earth through the practice of Zazen or earthing contacting the surface of the planet?
Just circle the illustration like you did in this post and post it!
