I want to thank you so much 💙 it's not just about the zero waste life style that i'm really interesting in and this video gave me examples of things that I can start with.. but these beautiful words in the end of the video 💙💙 this really helped me, inspired me.. now i'm more compassionate with myself and with others as well. I live with these words "take one step at a time.. don't be so hard on yourself.. it's a journey and everyone is at a different point.. don't judge others.. it all begins with awarness.." 💙 i'm now more grateful for this awareness.. and everytime I forget these words I come to this video and listen again.. so thank you so much.. love you 💙💙
I’m pretty much doing all of these things except for the no books thing. I could never give up holding a book in my hand. For some reason, I was never able to get into reading ebooks. Anyways, great video!
I love you View on everyone on different part of their journey. I’ve recently switched to reusable bags and honestly I’m so glad I’ve changed because I can carry so much more in one bag and it never falls apart on me. Also, I’ve started to use reusable containers for bulk items like brown sugar etc. I also bring my own chopstick from home instead of using the wooden ones. I feel like I haven’t done much but, if I look at myself just a couple years ago I’ve already cut my waste by a lot just doing those things. I sometimes feel like some people judge me because I’m still very wasteful but I’m doing the best I can and switching something out almost weekly!
Okay, here is the question I struggle with. I take plastic bags from markets because I use them instead trash bags. So even if I don't use plastic bags I must use trash bags which are also made from plastic. So what do you suggest me instead those? Sorry for my weak English by the way, I am a nonnative speaker.
Heyy I love love LOVE this video, it's got a great vibe as well as wonderful tips, but might I add that not everyone that menstrates is a woman, some men and nonbinary folk have periods too, so maybe "people who menstrate" might be a better phrase, or even just non gendered language too ♡ Inclusiveness helps everyone! ♡
Addition to the period problem, if you don't want to put something into your body so don't want to use diva cups invest in some period pants - they absorb blood the same as pads or tampons and mine were around £30 but you NEVER have to buy tampons or pads again (which are pretty pricey where I'm from due to the tampon tax). It also means no more chemically treated or plastic products in your most sensitive and absorbent area. No more chaffing or discomfort.I bought mine from https://www.shethinx.com and each one says how many tampons worth of blood it absorbs. I have a couple of pairs and once you wear them you just wash and dry them ready to be worn again. 100% would recommend to all.
Some different brands:
I feel like I do the most damage with water bottles. I don’t know why, but i NEED to drink water from a water bottle closed. I wanna puke if I drink it out of a glass, or a reusable bottle. I drink a lot of water, but since I just can drink it out of a closed water bottle; in one day I could easily waste 9 or so. Any tips recicling them, or just to make a change?
Facilities for business continuity may include alternate workspace equipped for continuation of business operations. Alternate facilities may be owned or contracted including office space, data center, manufacturing and distribution.
Systems for emergency response may include detection, alarm, warning, communications, suppression and pollution control systems. Protection of critical equipment within a data center may include sensors monitoring heat, humidity and attempts to penetrate computer firewalls.
Every building has exit routes so people can evacuate if there is a hazard within the building. These exit routes should be designed and maintained in accordance with applicable regulations.
Business continuity resources may include spare or redundant systems that serve as a backup in case primary systems fail. Systems for crisis communications may include existing voice and data technology for communicating with customers, employees and others.
Equipment includes the means for teams to communicate. Radios, smartphones, wired telephone and pagers may be required to alert team members to respond, to notify public agencies or contractors and to communicate with other team members to manage an incident.
Many tools may be required to prepare a facility for a forecast event such as a hurricane, flooding or severe winter storm.
Materials and Supplies.
Materials and supplies are needed to support members of emergency response, business continuity and crisis communications teams. Food and water are basic provisions.
Systems and equipment needed to support the preparedness program require fuel. Emergency generators and diesel engine driven fire pumps should have a fuel supply that meets national standards or local regulatory requirements. That means not allowing the fuel supply to run low because replenishment may not be possible during an emergency. Spare batteries for portable radios and chargers for smartphones and other communications devices should be available.
