Blue Health













Hi Everyone...

How do you feel when you listen to the ocean? For most people, they say they feel relaxed but are they really? Are there real health benefits of experiencing the ocean? The European Union has brought together 72 researchers of various backgrounds from nine institutions to study what they call "Blue Health." They have a variety of projects looking at the link between the Environment, Climate & Health.

Check out some podcasts discussing their mission which started in January 2016 and will run through 2020.

If you have not read Dr. Wallace J. Nichols book "Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under The Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, And Better At What You Do" I would also recommend you check out this link, the first 26 pages are FREE! Here is a very nice article as well! You will also find quite a few videos on YouTube!

Here is over 11 hrs of ocean waves if you would like to listen and relax! :-)

If A 7 yr old Can Do It...


Hi Everyone...

What an AWESOME little boy! Ryan is 7 yrs old and he has been recycling since he was 3 years old. He has earned 25K for college so far and sells t-shirts to help the marine mammals. I take my recycling to Target! They take plastic, glass, plastic bags, cardboard/paper, metal, and cell phone batteries. Just set up some containers and then when you get to Target park by the carts and you just wheel them in! :-) Of course Target does not pay for any of it but if you can't find someplace that pays take it to Target! :-)

Would You Rent Baby Clothes?













Hi Everyone...

Now I know many of you may keep your baby clothes for your future kids and that is great, but what happens to their clothes when they may be the last one to wear them? And what if they are fairly new clothes? Do you give them to relatives? Do you sell in a garage sale? Do you sell in a resale shop? How many new clothes have you bought or has someone else bought your children?

In Copenhagen Vigga & Peter Svensson came up with the idea of renting baby clothes, their company is  called Vigga. Now I'm sure you have heard of those services where you can rent or buy boxes of clothes...like Stitch Fix and others, well this is the idea but for babies. Check out this video and hear Vigga talk about her Sustainable Baby Clothes business.  It is a great idea, as this video states, "globally only 20% of clothing is recycled or reused." The price is pretty awesome too with 16 items costing $55. What do you think, would you rent baby clothes? Do you know of any companies like this in the US?

Blue Mind Live Online Book Club Discussion
















I wanted to make you aware that Dr. Wallace J. Nichols is starting the Blue Mind Online Live Book Club. Chapter 1 started this past Monday but you can catch up real fast even if you do not or cannot get a book quickly. 

First, Dr. Nichols is reading a few pages each night via Facebook. 8pm CST.

Here are the first two night's links:



Of course those are there now for you to listen to and only about 20 min a piece. What is great is he discussing it a bit along the way. :-) If you "follow" the page then you will get announcements each night when he is starting for that night.

Second, Radio Hatteras is also streaming the audiobook each evening at 6pm and 12am CST.

Then each Sunday at 8pm CST...you go to his Facebook page and he will be live for discussion for that week's chapter. 

Looks like over 250 people so far. Here is a link to Dr. Nichols discussing the Online Live Book Club Discussion.
