Finding Vegan Restaurants: HappyCow

Past Monday I came back from my holiday. I traveled to Budapest with my partner and two friends (the coming weeks I’ll tell you more about the traveling itself). Today I want to talk about another sustainability aspect while on the road: vegan food. I personally find the Netherlands a walhalla for vegan food (but we can do much better) and I know where to look for vegan food. But in other countries this can be tricky. Luckily there’s an amazing website/app for finding vegan restaurants: HappyCow.

Using Signal instead of WhatsApp

There are many problems we face as humanity these days. The climate crisis for example. Today I want to discuss a problems which really has been an underlying problem for all other problems. Fake news. It’s a scary one. It can change people’s view on the world. That the climate crisis is a hoax. That COVID-19 is a hoax. Distrust is its business. This problem is massive and may seem overwhelming. But in my personal journey I am learning more and more about what I can do to tackle it. Today I want to discuss fake news and my first personal step to tackle it: using Signal instead of Whatsapp.

Rescuing Food with Too Good To Go

Today, my dear readers, I have another example of how living a sustainable lifestyle is not expensive. It’s such a shame that people think that a sustainable lifestyle is expensive. The example I am sharing today is about food. Rescuing food. If you rescue food you can get food at a really low price. You can go dumpster diving or go to the local market at the end of the day. However, you need to be bold enough to do these things. Today I am sharing a really simple way to rescue food: Too Good To Go.

Game to combat Hunger: FreeRice

I guess you know all the charity commercials very well, just like me. The commercials where they show the awfully poor, sick and skinny children, who are about to die. These commercials always break my heart. I think almost everybody has something to give, but maybe that’s not always money. And so, what if you don’t have the means to donate? Well, there’s alternative I’d like to tell you about today. A game to combat hunger: FreeRice.

Nutrition app: Cronometer

The last few years my view on weight and body image has changed a lot. Where I used to focus on a quite random number on a scale and count how many calories I consumed, I am all about body positivity now. I am realizing more and more how important it is to love yourself and your body. So, it might seem weird that today I am sharing a nutrition app, since this usually means losing weight and counting calories. But no, this app is different. Today I want to tell you about Cronometer: an app for healthy nutrition.

App: Beat the Microbead

Today, for the first time ever, I want to share an app with you! This app can help you avoid plastics, very small plastics. So small that you usually can’t even see them. Micro-plastics. They pollute the environment. Micro-plastics end up in the oceans, in animals and also: in humans. It is a good thing to try to avoid micro-plastics as much as we can. The next app can help you with that: Beat The Microbead!

Secondhand Clothing App: Vinted

I hope you’ve noticed: I avoid buying new stuff and clothes. That’s because buying secondhand is the most sustainable option. Whenever I need something I usually buy it secondhand (or I lend it). Besides that it’s sustainable because there’s no new production, it also saves a lot of waste. That’s because you’re basically buying someone else’s waste. Today I want to share an app which is great for buying and selling secondhand clothing: Vinted.

Ecosia: The sustainable search engine

This is the very first blogpost for the theme ‘What you should know’ on my blog. This post is about a very simple sustainable switch, but at the same time it is a beautiful one! When people see me using this search engine I always get a ton of fun questions my way. I am talking about: Ecosia, a sustainable search engine.
