GREEN QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Why are we being forced to choose between the economy and the environment? We tend to forget that without an environment we would not have an economy, as everything we consume and I mean everything comes from our environment."

~ Franke James (contemporary artist, photographer, writer)

Protect Outdoor Music Festivals ~ 保护户外音乐节

We'd like to salute the organizers for the upcoming Great Wall Tanglewood Music Festival for encouraging everyone to appreciate the environment while they appreciate music.

A few tips to add from GtB:

这个世界不是你的烟灰缸。
如果你吸烟,请带着责任感去尊重环境。请随身携带烟灰缸,并妥善丢弃你的烟蒂。
THE WORLD IS NOT YOUR ASHTRAY.
If you smoke, please be responsible and respectful to the environment. Carry a portable ashtray with you, and dispose of your butts properly.

请关注“1”:
我们只有一个星球,所以请足够的重视它吧。好好照顾它,也就是好好照顾你自己和你关爱的人的生存空间。
LOOK OUT FOR # 1

Daily Inspiration -- Annie Leonard

Happy Friday!

Earlier this year, one of GtB's big antiwaste heroes and favorite storytellers, Annie Leonard, was interviewed by Brian Frank for Bitch Magazine.

The feature was published just at the release of "The Story of Bottled Water", her latest in a series of digestable, short, animated films that break-down and illustrate the perpetuated waste-cycle of [North American] consumer culture.

SCRATCH - The Chaplin Edition

2010-08-22 14:00

The Beijinger reports:

From 2pm on Sunday, August 22, Vicky Mohieddeen of Beijing’s Electric Shadows short film group will be conducting a Chaplin-themed “scratch” workshop. Like Electric Shadows' earlier workshop in May, the event will give all participants a chance to make their own film on the spot, by scratching, tearing, and painting strips of celluloid. In an age of digital media, this is a great chance for participants to get their hands dirty with real, old fashioned pieces of film.

BYOC (Bring your own chopsticks!)

Disposable Kuaizi, Photo from Shanghaiist Flickr Pool by Je.T.

"The recent landslides in Gansu, which have racked up a death toll of 1,117 people so far, has gotten the LA Times to ponder the issue of disposable chopsticks. Why? Because apparently, they contribute greatly to the ongoing deforestation and desertification of China, which has been blamed for causing worse floods every year."

Some crazy stats about China's disposable chopsticks usage, from the article and some extra research on The Shanghaiist.

Slowing Down for SLOW FOOD SATURDAY

"These days, there are almost too many food options in town. There are French cheeses and South African wines as well as Iberico hams and tuna flown in, daily, from Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji market. It’s enough to make you forget you live in Beijing. But wait – you do live in Beijing. When was the last time you thought about local free-range chickens? Or bought the in-season fruit from local markets and not imported mangos from Jenny Lou’s?

The profound impact of human civilisation and technology on our planet is an ongoing source of concern for many of us. Research indicates that China is one of the many countries which have problems with blue green algae or cyanobacteria blooms. The species which affects Beijing waterways is Microcystis.

Yummy: Home-Made Soup for the Soul!

DETROIT — The latest must-go event in this gritty, left-behind city — where D.J.’s flourish among ruins, trespassing in tumbledown buildings is part of a night out, and even garage rock is bare-bones — centers on soup.
