“I received much more cow dung than I required in my farmland. That’s when I started thinking of an alternative for not letting it go to waste.”, says P Ganesan, an organic farmer who has been making #artefacts for the past five years, using nothing but cow dung and cow urine.⁠ Image
Hailing from Perungamanallur village in Madurai, 52-YO Ganesan has invented a unique and organic way of crafting handicrafts.⁠

“I craft it by my hands. No machinery or mould is involved, and I don’t add ingredients other than cow dung and cow urine.
It is 100 per cent natural and eco-friendly.”⁠

Currently, Ganesan makes over 150 different products, including utility and decorative items. A 6-foot tall Buddha statue made using 30 kg of #cowdung is one of their masterpieces created by him.

A sustainable finance taxonomy is a critical policy instrument for identifying if and to what extent economic activities contribute to international goals and national commitments aligned with the #ParisAgreement and/or the #SDGs. 🧵 Image
Taxonomies can increase the #resilience of financial systems by enhancing the management of #sustainability risks and contribute to closing the funding gap for implementing #sustainableactivities.
There has been enormous momentum across the world to systematically integrate sustainability into financial decision making. However, channeling capital into sustainability-aligned investments requires a clear definition and common understanding of what qualifies as #sustainable

Use kalamkari scarves instead of gift wrapping paper and use #furoshiki

It is more #sustainable and creates less #waste
ReUse badly torn printed sarees (that are no longer wearabl) by ✂️ cutting them into squares and rectangles to be later used for gift wrapping.

1/ Proof of Work is too resource-intensive.

Proof of Stake is too centralized.

@chia_project answers the call as a more #sustainable, decentralized L-1 blockchain design.🧵 Image
2/ @chia_project's novel Proof of Space and Time (PoST) consensus mechanism requires users to employ unused hard-drive space to coordinate block production and earn rewards.

The result is a less consumptive, lower barrier-to-entry network, elevating the drawbacks of PoW and PoS. Image
3/ @chia_project’s native token Chia ($XCH) is used for payments, gas fees, and network security.

21M $XCH was minted and allocated to a Strategic Reserve pool controlled by Chia Network Inc at launch.

Additional $XCH is minted and distributed via rewards for farmers. Image

@kprather88 I can share what I've been told so often over the years about why =>N95/FFP2 respirators/masks😷& filters may not "significantly" reduce⬇️ #AirPollution health risk. Some= valid points to consider:
1- health effects of varying concentrations of PM2.5 exposures aren't linear.
@kprather88 cont...
2- they share poorly-designed studies in which too little filter surface area/efficiency/air flow rate is installed to provide enough cycles (i.e., air changes) per hour through filters for the space. When this is pointed out, they reply "solutions must be affordable" 2/
@kprather88 cont...
When one highlights that affordability, while very valid, answers & takes us toward a policy question rather than simply answering "do filters work" to reduce exposure of occupants to outdoor/indoor #AirPollution, they continue to conflate the #IndoorAirQuality science 3/

Our paper "Genetic diversity loss in the Anthropocene" is out in @ScienceMagazine!

We study how genetic diversity is lost by habitat loss to help define @UNBiodiversity #Sustainable targets…

@Stanford Image
This all started with a deep worry about our lack of knowledge of global losses of genetic diversity and the call for more conservation policies that account for genetics @LindaLaikre, @seanmhoban, and others Image
in summer 2021, a new @UN press release (motivated by a piece by @sdiazecology 10.1126/science.abe1530) presented the goal to preserve “at least 90% of genetic diversity within all species”. Great news, but how do we get there and measure progress?…

Dear @GretaThunberg
I've read in Spanish press ur article and I'd like to tell u, with all due respect for ur work in the fight against #ClimateEmergency, that the approach seems to me to be a mistake. If you will allow me, I would like to explain why 👇…
#biomass IS a #renewable #resources
Well managed, it's perfectly #sustainable

Obviously, there r places where things r done badly. For sure.

The situation isn't the same in northern Europe, where u r from, as it's in the south, where I'm from
We've broken the trophic chain... ImageImage
and it must be recovered, because now, we've we have in many areas of Europe an accumulation of energy due to a lack of herbivores, and a lack of a natural fire regime. Because fire, in a large part of Europe, is part of the natural system

You don't have to take my word for it Image

#Frugal engineering and value #innovation are serving as a source of #sustainable competitive advantage for our Khordha factory in #Odisha. The electrical team at the factory has developed an in-house centralized information system from scratch.
This system generally requires huge investments and complex third-party surveys to administer.

The Khordha factory sees a demand of 5.8 MW of power at any given point in time. Spread over an area of 37 acres means that the factory has nearly 600 touchpoints capturing the energy
readings for different parts of the factory. The maintenance team would traditionally walk the length and breadth of the premises to track the amount of energy being used by different units of the factory.
