The Plastic Soup Foundation and G-Star RAW are calling on other fashion companies, washing machine manufacturers and the textile industry to support the international Ocean Clean Wash. “Leading European research recently showed that a fleece releases an incredible 1 million microfibers every time it is washed,” says Maria Westerbos, director of the Plastic Soup Foundation.

Technological center LEITAT collaborates to research the technical feasibility of the solutions proposed.

Understanding Natural Systems Savory Pies – Irish Butte Pasties I’ve been a little amused lately with all of the chatter about pie being the new “it” food. Pie shops are popping up everywhere. My amusement comes from growing up around a lot of pie, both sweet and savory. My mother is one of the best pie makers I know and pie has always been a staple in our family.

Sustainable Development Goals and the Post-2015 Agenda The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the global framework to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development by 2030. The new objectives, a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), will be formally adopted by the international community at a dedicated UN Summit to take place from the 25 to 27 September. The 2030 Agenda was informally agreed by consensus at the UN in August this year. The Addis Ababa Action Agenda agreed in July also forms an integral part of the 2030 Agenda by setting out tools, policies and resources that need to be put in place to ensure that it can be implemented. Baby Potatoes In Yogurt Gravy/Dahi Aloo » divinetaste I’m yet to come across people who dont find comfort in potatoes. Cook it up however you want, chop it up however you wish or even smash it up and it rarely disappoints. I have many favourite ways of cooking potatoes.

Served as the main ingredient in a dish, it shines and when served alongside something else, it perfectly complements. How many vegetables have such attributes?

Pan-roasted Cauliflower This Cauliflower fry is made crispy by adding some flours and I wanted to try making this since it doesn't involve any deep-frying. My mom made this a few times while she was visiting us but as luck would have it, I was not supposed to eat it then since I was on a special 'post-partum diet' in which cauliflower was a no-no. All I got was one small floret - to taste and that only increased my yearning because it was really good. Ingredients: Cauliflower - half of a big one, separated into floretsBesan - 1/4 cupRice Flour - 3 tbspCornflour - 1 tbspChilli powder - 2 tspTurmeric - 1/4 tspSalt - to tasteOil - 1 to 2 tbsp Method:

GUARDIANS OF THE PLANET Through #MyClimateAction, National Geographic is sharing amazing stories of guardians of the planet – people who are proving the power of one.

Seven Things to Know About Climate Change Free markets are often lauded for their efficient results. In this connected age, there’s something like a free market of ideas. So ask yourself: If climate change weren’t a serious danger, would 195 countries have signed the Paris Agreement, pledging to try to keep the warming below 2°C (3.6°F)? Though shadowed by the new U.S. administration’s threat to withdraw from it, the agreement stands as one hopeful sign. The graph below, right, shows another: The cost of solar energy is plummeting. Even without a carbon tax—the most efficient way to wean an economy off fossil fuels—renewables soon may be cheaper sources of electricity.
