Golden milk, which you may also see called turmeric milk, turmeric latte, or haldi doodh, may be new to you, but it has centuries of history in Indian culture.

Sustainable Agriculture for our Future and for the Earth

Sustainable agriculture for our future and for the earth | ecogreenlove

Sustainable Agriculture became a recurrent topic among rural producers and businessmen involved in the agri-food trade. For the National Research Council (CNR), sustainable agriculture is not just a set of practices, but rather a goal to get a food production system. The goals are:

  • Increase the productivity of natural resources and agricultural system, enabling the producers to meet the levels of demand created by population growth and economic development
  • Produce healthy, whole, nutritious foods, that satisfy human and earth well-being
  • Provide farmers with a sufficient net income to get a fair standard of living and a profit to invest in their land
  • Increase the productivity of soil, water and other resources.

For a long time, there’s been a misinterpretation of the concept of “sustainability” in agriculture, mainly influenced by political and personal ideologies of its main proponents; thinking of sustainable farming as synonymous with “ecology” is a simplistic view of something broader and complex.

Staycation: Benefits + Ideas [Visual]

Staycation: Benefits + Ideas [Visual] | ecogreenlove

Staycations, of course, refer to vacations taken in and around your city—or in and around your own house. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, people weary of canceled flights, pricey resorts, and highway traffic jams opted to unplug from their devices and plan a week doing everything they’d always wanted to do at home, or happily doing nothing at all.

The upsides abound. You’ll spend little to no time in transit, leaving you more time to enjoy the activities you love most. And you’ll save money—depending on how simple or luxurious you want to skew your time off. You can incorporate family or create an individual experience. Either way, you’ll reap many of the benefits of a traditional vacation and return to your regular life with renewed energy and a sense of well-being.

Most office workers know it’s difficult to maintain the correct posture in an office chair for hours. And sitting in front of a computer all day can cause back pain, neck pain, and tight shoulders, among other possible issues.

In fact, the Society for Human Resource Management reported a 9 percent increase in companies offering standing desks to workers between 2017 and 2018.
