How much do you plastic?

I count five plastic bags in my kitchen cupboard, which I use over and over again. Although I must admit, that nine of the ten times I throw away another million little bags…bad habit or bad industry? Again an issue thrust at us, with eyes shut on a silver plate. We make a purchase, get … Continue reading

How sustainable is your fashion?

My recent shopping experience in London did not go very well. My dear colleague made me aware  that I had just purchased three items that where manufactured in China. She mocked me half seriously, half jokingly of sustaining an unfair, inhuman industry. Ouch! a joke or not, it seemed like a slap on my face. She was … Continue reading

Are you ready to trust again?

It’ s no news, that an immense gap has grown between donors and non profits after the huge Tsunami flop. Many questions were raised on how the money was used, its efficiency and if it landed where it was supposed to at all? Journalists, news papers and bloggers worldwide were firing the subject, questioning if we … Continue reading

Like to play a game?

Who doesn’t? Its fun and exciting to be challenged to score whatever there is to score, right? I can’t believe how gaming has developed in these last  ten years. Playing ‘Prince of Persia’ on my pc,  took hours. If someone showed me all this way back then, I would not have believed my own eyes! In recent times, … Continue reading

How clean is your water?

Growing up in the north of Italy I had the privilege to drink crystal clean mountain water. I remember we would often go to a spring by the road, where the freshest water I have ever tasted just infinitely flowed out of a tree’s hole. Simply there, as a gift from nature to all. Funny how uncommon such a delight now … Continue reading

wanna make a first impression difference?

Here’s the thing; we do business all day long and we usually do it the same way with one main goal: to leave a great impression. we meet, drop some interesting words, do a 5 minutes pitch on our account – without being too slick nor insecure – and then we leave the person in … Continue reading

Do you ever use a drill?

We are in the process of switching the set up in our apartment. Not a whole deal, just moving stuff around, bringing in a fresh angle for the season ahead. Requires some new drilling, screwing and smart moves. Don’t have a screwdriver or a drill though. So, all work pauses, need to wait until Monday … Continue reading

Are you a part of a larger eco-system?

Nature has its own way of leading by example. Lets take our ecosystem, a number of elements interacting with each other, at various levels, benefiting from each other in an efficient rhythm. What else could you call this but smart? As I’m sure you’ll agree, mosquitoes are not friends to many. But heres the thing, … Continue reading

If you ran the world, what would you do?

These days, everyone seems to want to do their own bit to better the world in a big or small way. Does this recent trend come with the growing frequency of natural disasters around us, or in fact, is an inevitable part of our evolutionary process. Or perhaps a combination of both? When we speak to people … Continue reading

Talk to water

More than half of our earth is water and three quarters of our body is water. We can live without food for days but water on the other hand, is our life line. What is this strange chemistry we have with water? Dr. Masaru Emoto has been a man of controversy when it comes to … Continue reading

We are the gardeners

Its incredible, if you think about it…how we have been gardening our planet into the wrong direction all this time, with no-one to tell us; ‘hey, you’re going the wrong way!’ (as an atheist I wonder, where’s god in this picture, hu?) So we keep polluting what we love the most, becoming the number one … Continue reading
