Eco-challenge: Get Rid of All the Plastic Bags http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/108-eco-challenge-get-rid-of-all-the-plastic-bags http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/108-eco-challenge-get-rid-of-all-the-plastic-bags

This is our very first challenge and these are some of our suggestions:

  1. Reorganize you garbage: get one big garbage bin for the white (and other) official garbage bags in your kitchen and make sure you get a proper lid to close it, instead of using small bags to fill up a big one;
  2. Make sure you get all kinds of reusable bags/boxes/trolleys: the ones provided by supermarkets, small thin bags to hide in your handbag and unfold when you need them, trolleys (some to be folded) and handy foldable boxes to leave in the car. It is such a nice feeling to be able to refuse all those plastic bags offered to you in the shops and at the market;
  3. Try to buy fruit and vegetables in loose and big quantities (see next month's challenge);
  4. Get a composting bin or compost place in your garden: this will reduce your (smelly) garbage.
  5. Make use of "Tupperware" and similar boxes to store things in the fridge, to use for picnic and as lunch boxes.

get access to a weekly organic fruit and vegetable basket in your neighborhood!

There are many reasons to do this:

  1. For your health: you will get a nice amount of fruit and vegetables every week, they are as fresh as they can be and they are organic and to say it with Michael Pollan's words: this is REAL food;
  2. For the environment: buying locally reduces your ecological footprint avoiding food miles (transport of your food) - even the fair trade ones come by boat which is less polluting than airplanes - it reduces packaging (no plastic involved);
  3. For your taste: nothing tastes as good as these fresh and organic treasures;
  4. For the wellbeing of traditional farmers versus the big food industry: both the local ones and the fair trade partners in developing countries;
  5. For biodiversity: some of the vegetables are almost forgotten and have become unavailable in our supermarkets, but taste lovely and are very nutritious.

Eco-challenge: Drink Tap Water http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/106-eco-challenge-drink-tap-water http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/106-eco-challenge-drink-tap-water

This will be our challenge for this month:

  1. Tap water in Belgium is safe and needs to qualify to 55 EU and WHO criteria and you can read all about it on www.vivaqua.be in English (under "Practical Information").
  2. At first it might have a chlorine smell/taste, but if you leave it for 10 minutes most of it has evaporated!
  3. A squeeze of fresh lemon juice might make miracles as to the taste!
  4. If you want to read about the impact of you drinking bottled water (waste, health, etc.) have a look at this article from www.emagazine.com
  5. If you prefer to use a water filter jug (e.g. BRITA) only use very cold water and store it in the fridge if you intend to keep it longer than a day (max. 2 days in total!)
  6. It is up to 100x cheaper than bottled water!
  7. Imagine how much waste and transport you could avoid by providing each family member with their own refillable drinking bottle!

Our challenge for this month is not so difficult, but quite important!

  1. A shower takes less water than taking a bath unless you shower for more than 8 minutes!
  2. By taking a short shower you can save money, but also reduce the amount of precious drinkable water you use to wash yourself with!
  3. One might think of timing a shower and a song or two might make it more fun (see also short shower songs and more tips at Do The Green Thing)
  4. Try to reduce the flow of water either manually or by installing a very efficient high aeration shower head (which you can find in shops like BRICO for about 15 €).
  5. A thermostatic knob might also help to find the right temperature immediately so you do not loose water before you actually take the shower.

Good luck with finding your favorite short shower tune!

Write a note, email or letter to your politicians or sign a petition!

  1. The annual global Climate Change Conference, this year from 1-12 December in Poznan, Poland, provides a good opportunity to ask our politicians for more bold actions NOW . You can write directly to them or see the petition for example on The Big Ask to be signed before 11 December 2008.
  2. The proposal to build a new coal plant in Belgium provides another opportunity to act: You can ask for the project to be stopped either through email directly to your politicians or through signing a petition, see for instance the Greenpeace link on this website under be heard.
  3. More locally, in all supermarkets you can post your suggestions in a box (usually forms are available). Give them your suggestions (also in English) to impove things concerning packaging, organic food choice, tracability etc.

Good luck and remember: you can make a difference!

Eco-challenge: Cut Your Water Consumption http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/103-cut-your-water-consumption http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/103-cut-your-water-consumption

Pier Faucet by jarnott on flickr!Living in a country like Belgium, the idea that water is a scarce resource can be hard to swallow; scarce things don’t fall from the sky every other day. But globally, the situation is quite different:

  • Only 3 percent of the Earth’s water is freshwater, and at least two thirds of that is held beyond human use in glaciers, ice caps, permafrost, or deep underground wells.
  • That last 1 percent? It’s not evenly distributed. In 2006, one billion people (one sixth of the world’s population) were living on less than the bare minimum of four liters of water a day needed for survival.
  • For the future, the situation only looks more precarious. Rising population means more pressure on existing resources, while global warming may put much of the freshwater supply at risk of disappearing, both from melting ice caps and glaciers and from decreased rainfall in much of the world.

With this in mind, it’s clear that water needs to be used as conscientiously and efficiently as possible (hydrologists estimate that up to 60 percent of water taken from aquifers for human use is wasted by leaks, evaporation, carelessness, or inefficiency), and to that end, here are some clear steps you can take to minimize your water consumption:

Around the house

Take showers, not baths; make sure there are no drips from any faucets or pipes; try and get water efficient toilets, showers, and appliances; and never let the faucet run while you’re not using it. For the more motivated: why not even install a rainwater collection system on your house so that you can minimize the pressure you put on sanitation and purification plants and eliminate the runoff which would otherwise collect chemicals on the road and flush pollutants into the sewers and streams? There is no reason we all need to flush our toilets and water our lawns with drinkable water, and a rainwater collection system can save both pollution, overconsumption, and money!

At the store

Ninety percent of freshwater use comes from agriculture and industry, so you can have a far greater impact on your water consumption by looking closely at the food you eat and the products you buy.

With regards to food

try to eat less meat and animal products. A hamburger represents over 3,000 liters of water; 500 grams of cheddar cheese represents over 2,400 liters of water. A vegetarian diet requires 2,000 liters of water daily, while a high-calorie, grain-fed meat diet requires 5,000 liters daily. But also, this relates to the non-food products we buy. On the clothing front, over 2,500 liters of water are needed to grow enough cotton to make a t-shirt; the diverting of freshwater to grow cotton was the chief factor behind the draining of the Aral Sea (once the fourth largest freshwater body in the world) – widely considered one of the greatest ecological disasters of all time.

Make sure then that you buy responsibly

that you don’t over-consume, buying products you don’t need; but also that whenever possible you buy products which come from regions of the world where freshwater isn’t scarce; or products made from alternative materials like bamboo or synthetics or wool, which consume significantly less water. And of course, whenever possible, be sure to purchase organic products that haven’t left a chemical stain on the streams and rivers (and oceans!) of the world.

At the faucet

Whenever you have thechance, use tap water instead of bottled water! It is unequivocally better for the environment and for your health.

First, the environment

the Earth Policy Institute estimates that bottled water pollutes 10,000 times more than the same volume of tap water. That includes the manufacture
of the plastic bottles, the fossil fuels used in manufacture and transportation, the disposal problems after the water is consumed, and the damage on our limited freshwater resources by bottled water companies that pump huge amounts of water from often already sensitive aquifers.

On the health front

the idea that bottled water is more healthy is a marketing myth! The reality is that there is far more government control over quality in tap water than bottled water, which means that with the exception of instances where disasters have compromised the public water supply, the water coming out of the tap is much cleaner.

A 1999 study by the US National Resource Defense Council found that one third of bottled water tested (from 103 brands) contained carcinogens and even arsenic! Numerous other studies have shown that even when minerals and salts are added to bottled water, they have no positive health impact, and tap water is still better for you.

The main trait which bottled water has going for it in the end is taste – but that can easily be duplicated at home with a good reverse osmosis water filter. And even with the cost of the filter, using your own water will save you big! Tap water comes at a cost of just a few cents a day! Let’s see Evian match that!

So yes, living in a wet part of the world it can be difficult to feel like water scarcity problems are pressing, but one last number should illustrate just how much of an impact our consumption can have. According to the study Globalization of Water, 80 percent of the water consumed by the average resident of Belgium (that includes in the production of our clothing, our food, our building materials, etc.) is imported from outside the country.

Eighty percent. Even in the wet parts of the world then, water is definitely a scarce resource.

Thirsty for more information? Most of the numbers in this article come from the book 'Water Supply,' edited by Richard Stein (H. W. Wilson Press, 2008). More information is also available online: www.waterfootprint.org is a great place to start.

This article was originally published in the July 2009 edition of the Sunbeams newsletter.

Eco-challenge: Gift Opening http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/98-eco-challenge-gift-opening http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/take-an-eco-challenge/item/98-eco-challenge-gift-opening

Gift Opening

Open gifts with care and attention to the wrapping paper, ribbons, tags and boxes. 

The challenge is to see how much can be saved and put away for reuse during your next holiday season.

Did you know that paper can be ironed on a low setting if you find there are two many creases in it from a previous wrapping.

On the inside of sheets of paper write the dates when used and see how many years one sheet of paper can be used.  This can provide great entertainment in years to come as you remember gifts wrapped in the paper years past or simply how many years you’ve seen it come back in circulation.

Save tags and reuse again another year….saves time on writing out new tags and money buying new tags.

Ribbon can be added to new ribbons another year, can be reused as is, or added to children’s crafts.

Boxes often fold flat and take up little space.  If they can not be folded, take on the puzzle challenge to find out how many you can nest together.  Wrapping the parts of a box rather than the whole box itself saves the paper and has a prepared box for next year’s use.

Can you reuse any parts of pre-packaged gift items?
