Greenwashing is the practice of marketing a product or a brand as being greener or more environmentally friendly than they really are.
as people are increasingly aware of their impact on the planet, many companies have seen this as a great business potential.
unfortunately many of them just try to appear eco-friendly through their image and marketing rather than through real changes. it is called greenwashing.
learn how to identify greenwashing and how to avoid it. here are a few tips:
1) be cautious of products making generic claims like "100% natural” or “environmentally friendly" without information as to how or why.
2) avoid products that make irrelevant claims, like "cfc-free" (cfcs were banned more than 20 years ago).
3) look for a seal or certification mark from a recognized, independent third party specializing in green claims.
4) look for the packaging: while a product may be green, is the packaging green as well?
5) don’t be misled by pretty pictures or use of earth-friendly colors on product labels. macdonalds or coca-cola might have green color on their logo, that doesn't make them eco-friendly!
6) question percentage claims, such as “this product contains 50% more recycled content.” fifty percent more than what?
finally, have a look at our profile and find many tips and ideas to reduce your footprint and be more eco-friendly! 😉 easy!

the lungs of the earth are in flames. 🔥 the brazilian amazon—home to 1 million indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. there have been 74,000 fires in the brazilian amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (national institute for space research, brazil). scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to president jair bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in january.
the largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. without the amazon, we cannot keep the earth’s warming in check.
the amazon needs more than our prayers. so what can you do?
✔ as an emergency response, donate to frontline amazon groups working to defend the forest.
✔ consider becoming a regular supporter of the rainforest alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. link in bio.
✔ stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers.
✔ be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains. eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of amazon deforestation.
✔ when election time comes, vote for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.

I've added a few more frames to my website this week, including this cloud of british butterflies. i've been absolutely loving sitting in the sun shine in the garden trying to identify all the butterflies floating past and i'm pretty sure i've spotted a few of these!
