The Roadmap includes recommendations for $350 million to accelerate energy storage deployment, including a new #NYSun incentive for #solar+storage projects, along with continued efforts to address permitting and siting challenges. Also, NY Green Bank is issuing an RFI to solicit direct interest from #EnergyStorage project developers as it pursues its $200 million commitment to this sector.

#funfactfriday Around 1 million disposable nappies per day go to landfill in NZ. But if every baby used just 1 cloth nappy a day, they would divert 12 bags of rubbish from landfill every year Sustainable changes don’t need to be “all or nothing” - cloth nappies included! - and isn’t it amazing how much impact just 1 nappy change a day can make. NZ business @looloo_solutions sell reusable toilet training underwear and are launching their “Once a Day” campaign in July - check them out for more info if this is something you could be interested in

Wondering whether to feel bittersweet about temperatures in the twenties in mid-April. But taking advantage to familiarise ourselves with a prettier route for an old destination. We've half a mind to make our own improvements to the sporadic signage.
Not only is plastic dangerous to fish humans are ingesting plastic microparticles by consuming the flesh of contaminated fish and shellfish. The plastics include nylon, polystyrene and polyethylene
It has been estimated that “top European shellfish consumers” might consume up to 11,000 #microplastic pieces a year

"The young people, they care. They know that this is the world they're going to grow up in. But I think it's more idealistic than that. They actually believe that humanity has no right to destroy and despoil, regardless. They actually feel that very powerfully." - Sir David Attenborough, A Plastic Ocean.
Hi friends just wanted to share this harsh but truthful documentary with yall because "from knowing comes caring, and from caring comes change"!! So what can you do for animals and the people?
Reuse, starting from packagings at home
Put your items in the recycling bin if available
Find alternatives for single use plastics, such as metal straws and tote bags
Pick products with less packaging #dollarvotes
Tell your friends and fam because we all all drops in a big ocean (hah)
The butt of a cigarette is primarily the filter, made of a type of plasticized cellulose acetate. It does not readily biodegrade. That does not mean it will persist whole in the environment forever though, as sunlight will degrade it and break it into very small particles. These small pieces do not disappear, but wind up in the soil or swept in water. So, this is another reason to quit smoking!
Auf der Kleewiese im Garten meiner Eltern haben wir im Moment viel Besuch von emsigen Bienen. Weißklee ist eine hochwertige Futterquelle für die Insekten und sein süßer Nektar ist in so gut wie jedem Mischhonig enthalten. Leider ist er bei vielen Gärtnern unbeliebt und wird unter anderem mit Pestiziden bekämpft.
Wir haben die schönen weißen Blüten und ihre summenden Besucher hingegen sehr lieb gewonnen und werden uns mit dem Rasen mähen noch einige Zeit lassen.
Currently we have lots of busy bees visiting the lawn in my parent's garden. White clover is a food source of high quality for the insects and it's sweet nectar is part of most mixed honeys. Unfortunately it's not very popular with gardeners and often treated with pesticides.
We instead, fell in love with the white blooms and their humming visitors and will take our time with the next lawn mowing.

How do you usually deal with your waste? It's not 'dealing with' but how can you #upcycle or maximize the value out of the waste? #rethinkyourwaste
1/2 of the world's top 100 companies have started utilizing circular economy to "counter the wastefulness of the traditional linear model...one company's waste may prove to be another 's raw material." In layman's term, one man's trash is another man's treasure. http://bit.ly/2JOXKvv

Whilst it may occasion you to grimace about the shocking mismanagement of our oceans, this film is well worth your audience. In a world that sometimes seems full of heads buried in the sand, Blue proves that there are many fighting hard to turn the tide on climate change.”

"If allowed to continue this reality stands to create a kind of climate apartheid, endowing an overtly political government agency with the power to decide...which families are allowed to stay together."
