    Actually, that I am doing pretty good already. Transportation is the one that still needs more attention - but I live in an awful climate where walking is not always an option

    I am going to continue eating a lot less refined sugars than before. I am not saying I will cut them out entirely, because I don't want to lie, but I will definitely stay away away from them more often. I will also pay more attention to the sugar content in savory foods and avoid those with more than 5% of sugar whenever possible. Thank you for the challenge! :)

    Day 15. Visited environment education conference and enjoyed lectures about climate change. I also helped to carry out workshop about climate change :) I was happily surprised to find that all coffee, tea and sugar in the conference was Fairtrade and that it was possible to eat meat free without even have to ask about it  (it was made so comfortable).

    In the conference, there was a discussion about meat industry effects on the environment and I heard a good point that even though meat production worldwide is usually industrial, intensive and harmful for the environment, it is not so black and white in  Estonia. Of course only when we talk about beef and mutton (pork production is still intensive and industrial). Cattle live normally outside, they eat what they find (grass, not soy) and they help to maintain unique natural communities - semi-natural sites (poollooduslikud kooslused). So when you eat beef or mutton in Estonia, then you actually help local biodiversity. Because many orchids and other species that live in semi-natural sites, need grazing to survive. Btw semi-natural site is a place where there have been found the highest biodiversity in Estonia (76 vascular plants per m2).

     It only takes little steps to gradually change myself for better and for living a more environmentally friendly way. It is good to feel that these challenges have made me a better human being and to be more aware of the environment. Thanks!

    Olen nüüd tõsiselt käsile võtnud oma pakendimajanduse. Üritan võimalikult palju osta oma pakendis või pakendivabalt ja kõik mis tekib suunata suures osas ringlusse.

    Taasavastasin kui vahva on Aparaaditehase hoov ja sealsed kohad.

    Olen 2 kuud kooli rattaga käinud! :) Kui külm ära ei võta, siis käin veel kuni lumi tuleb.

    Kurb fun-fact NBS konverentsilt: Eestis kasutatakse aastas 1miljon kg taimekaitsevahendeid.
