Use linguine pasta sticks for coffee stirrers, instead of wood or plastic!
Clean & renewable energy initiatives at Washington DC-
“The city is also moving to electric vehicles: By 2045, all city buses, taxis, limos, and other privately owned fleets with 50 or more passengers or vehicles will have to use zero-emission vehicles. But buildings are an especially important part of the overall plan, since they account for around three-quarters of the city’s emissions. The city already has a benchmarking program that requires the largest buildings to report their energy use. But that will expand to include any building larger than 10,000 square feet. Over a period of years, those buildings will also have to meet new standards for energy use, meaning they’ll likely have to do some renovation or tweak the automated systems that run heating and cooling.”

One thing Greta Thunberg would do....
One Thing that Greta would do:
If there is one thing you do today, watch Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot’s short film...inspirational and makes you understand that everyone has One Thing they can truly do to help turn the situation around.
Onething to do, check out Greta's interview with Trevor Noah & spot when she endorses Onething ?
What we should do as individuals is to use the power of democracy to make our voices heard and to make sure that the people in power cannot continue to ignore this.” - Climate activist Greta Thunberg
@Greta the #Thunder!
Shaking things up
They called her a *puppet
They say she is a *child
They say she is suppose to be in school on Friday
They say only adults have wisdom
Hmm - seems this child can move things
and in-fact if you listen to her responses,
She answers questions meaningfully & Intelligently
Why wouldn’t you love her
Because she gets in your skin
She say things “as is”
She is the real deal
“A powerful force blazing through
with a magnetic energies”
Greta on #onething bandwagon @onethingyoucando on OT
Ooh I’m glad you brought up the spaghetti coffee stirrer. This is something I hear a lot. I mean, I don’t need a stirrer for tea or coffee, and if you do, why not use a spoon?
And then if you need something disposable is it more sustainable to use pasta rather than wood? Is there a life cycle analysis on this?
Hey Mesh, do you have a “one thing” for IG from this?
Save water, as per attached advice of Affinity water company
It’s bizarre watching the episode on tv
A new low point
Sometimes it’s best to hold off comments
Some observations are just unbelievable
Seem to be the new norm

Sustainability failed. The future is just climate.
Tip from an old school friend:
Hi guys I know it’s only a small thing but was feeling upset about the amount of mail I was receiving that was unsolicited and went straight in the bin just wasting resources so just found out about mail preference services that can remove all of this https://www.mpsonline.org.uk.
