You can find some yummy and healthy recipes on my second favourite eco site after Care2,
which is Ecobites, on the following page : http://ecobites.com/eco-recipes/331.html

There are about 125 food recipes, plus 25 for drinks, and another 70 or so for children.
Mmm...

I put this in 'Nature' rather than 'Off Topic' because the recipes use organic ingredients
and the site has lots of other advice for saving Nature and nurturing the planet. :D

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web,
we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

I never bought any clothing made of Modal because I didn't know what it was until I looked it up on WiseGeek:

Modal was first developed by the Austria Lenzing company, who trademarked the fabric's name, but now many manufacturers make their own versions. In Europe it is already widely used in clothing as a replacement for cotton.
Modal is a processed bio-based textile made from reconstituted cellulose from the beech tree. It is very soft and popular for both clothing and household textiles such as bedding, upholstery, and towels. Modal may be used on its own or in a blend with cotton, spandex, or other textiles. In many ways, modal acts like cotton, but it also has some significant advantages over cotton.
Modal is considered a type of rayon. While rayon may be made of the wood pulp of a number of different trees, modal uses only beechwood. Modal is considered bio-based rather than natural because, though the raw materials used to make it are natural, they are heavily processed using a number of chemicals.
Like other types of rayon, originally marketed as "artificial silk," modal is soft, smooth and breathes well. Its texture is similar to that of cotton or silk. It is cool to the touch and very absorbent. Like cotton, modal dyes easily and becomes color-fast after submersion in warm water.
One of the advantages of modal over cotton is its resistance to shrinkage, a notorious problem with cotton. Modal is also less likely to fade or to form pills as a result of friction. Its smoothness also makes hard water deposits less likely to adhere to the surface, so the fabric stays soft through repeated washings.
Modal drapes well and keeps its shape, even when wet. In order to keep them looking best, pure modal products should be ironed after washing, but this may not be necessary for modal fabric blends.


So, I have now bought my first Modal clothing even though I'm a little wary of the chemical processes used to make it.

Here's a good site with some wonderful recipes (velvety chocolate peanut butter pie; roasted broccoli with garlic parmesan cream sauce; banana and walnut oat bread; etc...).

I'm going to try their Middle Eastern lentil soup next, just right for this very cold weather.

Dutch railways - an example to follow

Post by Stardust on Mon 15 May 2017, 23:22

11 Jan 2017, 16:04

As of 1st January 2017 all electric trains in the Netherlands run on 100% clean and renewable wind energy, a year ahead of schedule.

This will dramatically reduce their carbon footprint, so well done to them.

A wonderful example for other countries to follow.  thumb

I don't totally follow. Wind-generated electricity depends on the wind blowing. Few generation sites in the world are constantly windy and I wouldn't have thought The Netherlands had many of them. Or do they have so many wind turbines in so many places that the electrical demands of the rail network can be met at all operating times even when some turbines aren't generating power?

Or do they have so many wind turbines in so many places that the electrical demands of the rail network can be met at all operating times even when some turbines aren't generating power?

A single windmill running for one hour can power a train for 120 miles. 
The idea is being shared by neighboring countries, with an anticipated spread through Europe.

Half of the demand will be sourced from a number of new wind farms in Belgium and Scandinavia, which have been specifically assigned for this contract. A key objective is to avoid procuring energy from the limited existing number of sustainable energy projects in the Netherlands, thus promoting renewable growth both domestically and Europe-wide. "This partnership ensures that new investments can be made in even newer wind farms, which will increase the share of renewable energy

Decomposing waste

Post by Stardust on Mon 15 May 2017, 23:29

12 Jan 2017, 08:52

Time taken for waste to decompose
(may vary according to information source but these are average times):

Aluminum can: 200-500 years
Banana peel: 3-4 weeks
Batteries: 100 years
Cardboard: 2 months
Cigarette butts: 10-12 years
Disposable nappy: 250-500 years or more
Foam plastic gobelet: 50 years
Glass: 1-2 million years
Leather shoes: 25-40 years
Nylon fabric: 30-40 years
Paper bag: 1 month
Plastic bag: 10-1000 years
Plastic bottle: 450 years or more
Plastic jug: 1 million years
Railway ticket – 2 weeks
Rubber boot sole: 50-80 years
Sock (woollen): 1 year
Styrofoam: 1 million years or more
Tin can : 50 years
Wool clothing: 1-5 years

Some of these can be recycled so we see how important it is to remember to put them in the correct recycling bin.
