Nature is speaking

Conservation International have done a series of short films from the view point of different aspects of nature, featuring some very famous actors and some beautiful footage.

They are brilliant, some are quirky, others hard hitting but the message is the same…

Humans need nature, nature does not need humans

Harrison Ford as The Ocean is my favourite one, it is so powerful and ominous..:

I <3 Trees!

Search the web, save the environment!

I have recently added Ecosia as a plugin to google chrome. It is a search engine where every time you search via the site, you contribute to a tree being planted. Ecosia, like most search engines uses adverts to develop an income, however Ecosia donates 80% of that income to a tree planting project in Brazil.

Ecosia graphics are fun and upbeat and the best bit is it keeps track of how many trees you have helped to plant. I have apparently planted 18 trees since i started using Ecosia only a month ago.

Im not sure of the actual contribution using Ecosia has, or whether 18 trees have actually been planted thanks to yours truly. Nevertheless, I always like to support positive initiatives especially when its helping to replenish trees which are so vital to human survival and the biosphere.

Below is a link to a video explaining what Ecosia does and how.
