Yours *TrulyJuly*

Happy Heritage Day!

The sun is out, it’s just a bit windy.

With Cape Town’s strong gusts it is no surprise that litter gets blown about and collects in the corners of our neighbourhood.

Every bin day I do a MOOP swoop and clean up our street.

But today I also did a quick cleanup, so we can all enjoy our hood for Braai Day.

It goes so quick, in only 10 minutes I collected more than one garbage bag, which, by the way, I also found amongst the litter.

If we all did this, our neighbourhood would always be clean.

While we all should try to reduce the negative impact we have on this planet, we can also start to make up for our wasteful lifestyle and bring back to life what civilisation has destroyed:

 

How To Restore the Earth

 

Ecosystem Restoration Camps are the solution, as we learned in an inspiring talk by John Dennis Liu.

 

Such an inspiring talk! Make sure you make the next presentation on 23rd July!

Such an inspiring talk! Make sure you make the next presentation on 23rd July!

 

John outlined how to regenerate vast destroyed landscapes on the example of China’s Loess Plateau and continued to restore throughout his talk, – this time hope amongst the audience.

 

He explained that we don’t need permission to save the planet: Let’s not wait for the big world organisations. We can simply start ourselves.

 

He experienced how doing good brought people together on their own inititiative, with their own funding.

 

John pointed out that large scale projects need to be tackled by a large team of unified stake holders, such as community organisations, local authorities, relevant NGOs, NPOs and charities, guided by a representative council.

 

He advised that Ecosystem Restoration Camps only work if we accept each other as equals.

 

In conclusion John showed us the not-so-secret secret handshake amongst camp members that confirms this vision with every greeting.

 

You have to hear John’s story of hope in person.

There’s another chance to see John live:

Of course: The bicycle.

I can tell from experience, as I #CycleToCommute.

 

How often did I race my flatmates home after meeting up after work in London.

I was the only one on a bicycle.

Most people used public transport, so it meant a race against the tube.

Even if I walked with them to the tube station and took off from there, I always was the quickest one home. If there was an interchange in their tube journey, I knew I could take it easy.

Even the night bus was no match: While it may take off with more vroom, at the next traffic light I’d be overtaking it. As soon as it circumvened from the most direct route it meant: ‘See you later’ for me.

 

When I cycle to commute I always race some car. – It just makes the journey more fun. However, I so often encounter traffic, that the winner of the race is all too apparent as I cycle past the rows of cars stuck stagnant in traffic.

 

But don’t just take my word for it, there are many examples showing the bicycle wins in a comparison of different modes of transportation.

The space the same amount of people take up in traffic on a bus, bicycles, and cars.

The space the same amount of people take up in traffic on a bus, bicycles, and cars.

 

The fact that the bicycle is a completely carbon emission free way to get from a to b makes it of course a clear winner.

Take the 4 R pledge today!

Take the 4 R pledge today!

 

It’s #PlasticFreeJuly, which encourages us to #ChooseToRefuse #SingleUsePlastic.

 

It’s tough to avoid plastic, it’s simply everywhere. And it’s even tougher to save the planet.

 

But we need to start somewhere. We all can do our bit.

 

Take the 4 Rs pledge:

REFUSE disposable plastic whenever and wherever possible.
Choose items that are not packaged in plastic, and carry your own bags, containers and utensils. Say ‘no straw, please.’

REDUCE your plastic footprint.
Cut down on your consumption of goods that contain excessive plastic packaging and parts. If it will leave behind plastic trash, don’t buy it.

REUSE durable, non-toxic straws, utensils, to-go containers, bottles, bags, and other everyday items.
Choose glass, paper, stainless steel, wood, ceramic and bamboo over plastic.

RECYCLE what you can’t refuse, reduce or reuse.
Pay attention to the entire life cycle of items you bring into your life, from source to manufacturing to distribution to disposal.

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.
