Eco Living Weekly Digest #14

in #ecotrain21 days ago (edited)

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.

Seasteading Couple Safe In


Eco-living can, and does often, push at the boundaries of what is

Please don't forget to use the tags #ecotrain and #nvc and to post your
url in the comments of any relevant NVC post.

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 was related to our NVC Workshop. We had some creative, insightful responses! Please go and support the curation and the posts contained in it with some upvote & comment love.

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 of eco-community.

Wishing you peace, abundance & connection as together we try to walk more lightly on Mother Earth.

Much love to you all from @eco-alex and @artemislives.
