7 Books by Women About the Climate for International Women's Day

7 Books by Women About the Climate for International Women's Day | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

This Sunday, March 8 marks International Women’s Day, an annual holiday that has been observed for more than a century. Women are at the forefront of so many social justice movements, and climate activism is no exception. From the onset of the U.S. environmental movement in the 1960s up until present-day, many women have led the way by writing books about how everything from the chemical industry to capitalism to conspicuous consumption impacts planet Earth. 
So if you're looking for a way to celebrate International Women’s Day this year, consider honoring the most important woman of them all — Mother Earth, of course — by reading a book about protecting her.

Experts Weigh In On Taking Your Kitchen From Wasteful To Waste-Free

Experts Weigh In On Taking Your Kitchen From Wasteful To Waste-Free | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

It’s easy to succumb to the greenwashing of eco-friendly packaging. Buzzwords like recycled, organic, compostable and recyclable convince us to buy additional products just because they say they’re better for the environment. But the central ethos of reducing our impacts and waste have to start with buying high-quality and long-lasting items, and end with nothing getting tossed out (even if it’s being thrown into a recycle bin).

Diaries of a garbage bag

Diaries of a garbage bag | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
Our garbage may be taken out of sight, but it never disappears. Whether it is recycled, landfilled, burned or tipped into the sea, it endures in one form or another—a witness to past human activity. Even prehistoric times are known to us primarily through such traces: long before our forebears could write, they left waste behind, offering clues as to their diet, habitat and tool-making. To this day, our garbage bag is profoundly revealing, sometimes bursting at the seams with secrets and social commentary. In other words, it tells our story.

5 Simple Ways to Start Living A Zero Waste Life In Egypt – The Daily Crisp

5 Simple Ways to Start Living A Zero Waste Life In Egypt – The Daily Crisp | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
If you’re familiar with the amount of waste that is produced in your house on a daily basis, then the notion of “Zero Waste” probably sounds intimidating. From your toiletries down to how you store your food, we all unknowingly create a ton of unnecessary waste every day. By the next morning, the trash is out of the house and thus out of sight out of mind. The “Zero-Waste” movement aims to raise awareness about the fact that most of your waste is not biodegradable, and cannot be recycled. This is why we should all try to produce less waste, which in the long term means creating less of the products that eliminate toxins in our environment and pollute our planet.

Producers forced to “throw away” millions of flowers and plants - The Portugal News | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
Portuguese producers of flowers and plants warned on 27 March that they are "throwing away tons of plants" due to the "almost total stagnation of sales" caused by the pandemic of the covid-19.
"We estimate that 2.5 million plants and flowers are going to waste because sales have been stagnant. Orders have been cancelled for more than 15 days, and the tons we had produced are to be thrown away," lamented Victor Araújo, president of the Portuguese Association of Natural Plant and Flower Producers (APPPFN), to Lusa.
