  1. greta_Vogue Scandinavia Cover.jpegFamous climate activist Greta Thunberg adorns the front cover of the first Vogue Scandinavia magazine. And the uses the interview opportunity to reach a new audience and to criticize the environmental pollution of the fashion industry.

    In Vogue's interview, Thunberg said that that she hasn't bought any clothes in three years when she bought secondhand clothes. "I just borrow things from people I know," she explained.

    Thunberg has shared the interview herself on Instagram where she writes that the fashion industry is a big emitter and that it is not possible to mass-consume fashion in a sustainable way as the world looks today.

    "Many are making it look as if the fashion industry are starting to take responsibility, by spending fantasy amounts on campaigns where they portray themselves as ”sustainable”, ”ethical”, ”green”, ”climate neutral” and ”fair”. But let’s be clear: This is almost never anything but pure green washing," she writes. "You cannot mass produce fashion or consume ”sustainably” as the world is shaped today. That is one of the many reasons why we will need a system change."

    What are your thoughts about the fashion industry? Is it mostly just greenwashing like Thunberg says, or is it possible to shop green and sustainable clothes? 

    And have you also reduced your consumption of clothes and other fashion items? Are you shopping secondhand clothes? Let us know how you are making your wardrobe greener!

    If you are experiencing discomfort in the office, then it is better to change jobs.

    This is true, we spend most of our life at work and then you shouldn't feel miserable or discomfort from your actual job - it's just too bad that it's not that easy to just switch to another job. 

  3. The Kauai 'O'o (Kauaʻi ʻōʻō) was a bird species that lived on the islands of Hawaii. Due to habitat destruction by human activities and exploitation, and after humans introduced invasive species to the islands, this bird species went extinct in the late 1980’s. The Kauai 'O'o mated for life and both the male and the female had a distinct mating call. Wikipedia describes it as a very vocal, making hollow, erratic, flute-like calls.

    The bird was last sighted in 1985, and the last sound recording was made in 1987. Listen to the last bird of his kind singing a mating call, to a female that would never come.

    Truly heart-breaking.

    Seasons changing sets the climate’s evolution and shows us the hidden life of our planet which we can’t see with our own eyes. A recent shift in the seasonal dynamic pattern describes the current ecological crisis in the best way.

    Yeah, I really miss our four seasons. It was decades since we had a proper winter. Now it's mostly a short spring, and then a long and sweltering summer that ends with a dark and wet autumn. :(
