Eco Living Weekly celebrates our collective efforts to live more harmoniously on Mother Earth, and walks hand-in-hand each week with @ecotrain's other eco-village curation, Global Steem Village News. It's a "best of" from posts on the steem blockchain this past week which have used the #ecotrain tag.
What kind of content will get you curated here? Practical, thoughtful, creative and personal posts about literally Making the World a Better Place. From recycling, art, natural health and organic-permaculture to eco-travel, creating change, spirituality, art-poetry-music, natural food preparation and growing-storing-preserving your food and natural medicine. Please attribute quoted material and images which aren't your own, and be thoughtful. You need to use the #ecotrain tag to be considered for an upvote. And please make at least part of your post in the English language - we MANUALLY curate so we need to be able to understand the gist of your post.
We DON'T require you to delegate to @ecotrain, but we'd ask you to please consider it. You can take it back at any time, no questions or stress. Delegation is nothing more than a LOAN of your SP so we can give YOU juicier upvotes. It's a no brainer, really. We also don't REQUIRE you to upvote or support others (all too school-marmy for us!) but, again, we'd ask you to simply give to others what you' like to receive, which is a generous upvote and a thoughtful comment.
MUCH APPRECIATION for the wonderful posts this week.
Please: read, upvote, comment, resteem the posts we've selected for
you. Share them on twitter, facebook and your other social media. And
start writing YOUR next @ecotrain post.
A powerful and well-reasoned piece from Tribe Steem Up's own
@kennyskitchen explaining why climate change is a scam. A must read!!
When one of the largest producers of plastic in the world announces the
phasing out of single use plastics? @vlemon, as usual, keeps us on the
ball a what's happening in terms of environment on the macro level.
Establishing an organic social enterpise takes YEARS of commitment, time
and scratching about in the dirt. @artemislives gives us a peek about
her latest trip to the Thai-Burmese border working with the displaced
Karen refugee people.
Politics and environment? @celestialcow shares a skit video showing her
thoughts about the recent devastating fires in Australia, and Australia
(or Invasion-Survival) Day.
Learning to eat what Mother Nature provides - @senorcoconut asks if we
can learn to harvest and consume seaweed sustainably.
Best time to take yourself into a department store or supermarket and
objectively assess what is sold as "food" iis during a Fast!!
@stortebeker shares his teacher's remarkable wisdom of reconsidering
what we buy and eat whilst we're clearing out on the inside! His whole
fasting series is worth a look-see and some support.
Growing out of the first communication challenges with the eco-village
project in Portugal, @eco-alex has generously offered a 4 week FREE Non
Violent Communication workshop. So much incredible learning and growing
to be had... please join in!
AND we'd love you to share your post to twitter using the tags #steem
#ecotrain and #nvc and then invite you to post the twitter url back into
your steem post with a #PSOH tag. Yes, we're getting serious about
getting steem out there in the twittersphere. A little birdie whispered
there might be some juicy upvotes encouragement worms out there, and
it's an important onboarding tool.
The Ecotrain Question of the Week is one way that we, as a digital
community, engage and share, learn and inform about things that
matter. The QOTW is open to anyone, and this week's question is
related to our NVC Workshop!
ANYone can contribute!! Let us know your post URL in the comments of
the Launch Post ^^ so we can upvote, comment, engage, support and curate
you in our Tie Up Post. This QOTW, Season 3, Number 5, closes on
Sunday 2nd February! You still have time to post!!
We hope you have enjoyed these eco-living posts - please LAVISH
them with upvotes, reblogs, comments and engagement.
If you're able to delegate, or increase your delegation, to
@ecotrain, it's a simple and practical way you can help to engage with,
and fund, steem eco-villages around the world.
Most importantly, consider writing under the #ecotrain tag this
coming week - we love all posts eco-green, earth building, spiritual and
natural, but mostly as those things relate to the building and evolution
Wishing you peace, abundance & connection as together we try to walk
more lightly on Mother Earth.
