Mrs Green’s eco friendly stories

Submitted by on Sunday, 21 June 2009 Loading Add to favourites  3 Comments

watering is it better to drip or drenchIt’s my time in the week to share some great green stories. There are many people all across the internet doing some wonderful things to keep our environment safe, our body’s healthy and to uplift and inspire us towards a more meaningful life.

From water conservation to solar panels, natural remedies for coughs to some spiritual enlightenment there are lots of good people out there doing their bit to make the world a better place.

Here are four of my favourite stories from this week:

Eco Adkins diet

kathy, over on lunchbox lunch shares her views on the ‘eco adkins’ diet – good for you and good for the environment.

You might be aware of the Adkins diet, which involves little or no carbs and high amounts of animal protein. The Eco Adkins diet adopts the same prinicples of high protein and low carbohydrates but is based on a healthier vegan diet.

Food for thought!

Hypnotherapy

Russell Davis, cognitive therapist, found a great article entitled “It’s time for hypnosis to work its way in to the mainstream.” Having experience the profound effects of hypnotherapy myself, I find myself agreeing with him.

Find out why Professor David Spiegel, of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Sciences at Stanford University feels it is time for hypnosis to work its way into the mainstream of British medicine.

If you’re interested in hearing more about using cognitive therapy for stress management, then don’t miss the interview I did with Russell earlier this year with some great tips for reducing stress in your life.

Andean Fairtrade Collection

I was contacted by The Andean Collection this week who sell fair trade bracelets, necklaces and earrings.

With a commitment to fair trade principles, Andean Collection work collaboratively with artisans from disadvantaged communities in Peru and Ecuador to create high fashion eco-friendly designs, influenced by ancient cultures. Worth a look for a unique and ethical gift!

Watering plants – drip or drench?

As summer comes out of hiding in some parts of the world, Amber from Re-Nest tells us that drenching plants once or twice a week is better than daily drip feeding! Find out more in Amber’s ‘Two ways to save watering the plants’ article and let us know what works in your garden.

I prefer to drench every few days too, but Mr Green is more of a drip feed kinda guy. What about you?
