How Can you Be Sustainable while Traveling around the World?

Is Biodiversity Important to the Survival of Humans and the Planet?

During the past 200 years, humans had a substantial and not very positive impact on biodiversity. Our modern lifestyle, with sprawling cities and infrastructure, with our lighthearted production and consumption attitudes, pushed biodiversity to the brink.

With this, we produced substantial risks. Even our and the planets’ survival is at risk. Burning fossil fuels and spreading around millions of tonnes of chemical poisons jeopardize our existence as a species.

How to Feed 10 Billion People on the Earth Sustainably?

How to feed 10 billion people on the earth sustainably? This is a question of concern for all of us. Not just politicians and the food industry should decide what we will eat in the next 50 years.

To Walk or to Cycle, Which is Better? Either Way, they're Both Sustainable

To walk or to cycle, which is better? There has never been any doubt in my mind that cycling and walking are the 2 most sustainable modes of travel.

However, the more we discuss sustainability issues in our articles, the more the question pops up in my head which of the 2 is the most sustainable. To walk or to cycle, which is better?

Healthy Feet are Important because they Carry the Full Weight of Our Body

Healthy feet are important, as well as healthy footwear. As a matter of fact, one can not do without the other.

The best healthy feet are those feet that do without shoes. However, most of us wear shoes. Because we want to, or we have to. Being used to walking with shoes on, there are certain risks to walking barefoot.

Sustainable Footwear Protects the Environment and Our Health

The best sustainable footwear is no footwear. Don’t think this is not possible. There is a huge movement out there of people who walk barefoot all day. Barefoot is not without risks, but in general, it’s better for your feet.

However, many of us wear shoes all day. By custom, or because we have to.

This is partly because they believe that environmental problems can only be solved by pressurizing governments to take on big multinational corporations.

Third, it is important for us to understand that we also have a responsibility of our own. Once we accept a specific medical therapy, we need to discipline ourselves to follow suit. The lack of medication therapy compliance often hampers the healing process.
