Reusable birdfeeders… but there’s still plastic

Two weekends ago we were on our way to meet some friends, and we saw many of the seeds that can be store-bought to hang on the branches of the trees for the birds to eat during winter. Most of them are inside of a plastic net so the birds can eat it but what is left is still hanging. I took a picture of it (right side) and I took also a picture of a bird feeder or at least looks like a seed balls hanger, which is good, you can reuse it, right? But when looking closely, I realised the seeds that were inside had still the net. So what’s the point?

Snowy Heidelberg

Hi everybody, hope you are having a good start into the week!
Here in Southwest Germany we had a cold weekend and it still continues. The area where we live is actually known as the warmest of the country, which means, it doesn’t snow that often, and when it does, it doesn’t layer up too much and does not lingers. It’s been only three years since I moved here but I can tell this has been the coldest winter for me. Today we woke up with -3ºC (smartphone said -7, but I have no idea where the sensor is), for me, a Mexico city girl (pretty much mild temperature), it definitely felt cold! But still, got into my sport pants and went for a walk at 6:40am!

Preparing for the mini Ice Age [Infographic]

Preparing for the mini Ice Age [Infographic] | ecogreenloveInfographic by Cast Iron Radiators 4u

Recent research, presented at the National Astronomy Meeting, suggests that the northern hemisphere could be plunged into a mini ice age within the next ten years. This would lead to those currently living in temperate climes (like the UK and USA) enduring colder and harsher temperatures than they are prepared for. If this comes to pass you will want to be as self-reliant as possible in terms of heat, energy and food. While the mini ice age may prove to be a lot of hot air; these methods can still be used to save you money, help the environment and keep you healthy.
