Sustainable Birthday Decor

I sell eco-friendly happy birthday signs!

https://www.etsy.com/listing/1731594561/eco-friendly-happy-birthday-sign

They are handmade from thrifted or donated nature magazines, yarn collected from my great aunt who passed, and cardboard collected from preschool families where I work as an environmental teacher. Diverted from the landfill & made into a beautiful sign to celebrate a loved one.

Each sign is unique but if you prefer a certain color theme, please reach out to me as I can try my best to find pieces that best fit your vision.

I'm selling these to help pay my hefty student loans! So I would appreciate any support! Thank you!

Sustainable, Ethical & Environment Friendly Health Brand🌿✨

Hey everyone! I recently discovered a fantastic brand called Dessoi from India, and I'm absolutely loving it! Dessoi is a health and wellness brand committed to sustainability, ethical sourcing, and environmental friendliness. Their teas are sourced directly from the lush tea gardens of Assam and blended in small batches, ensuring the most delicious, sugar-free, and additive-free experience.

I've made it a habit to start my mornings with a warm cup of their tea, and it has been a game-changer. Plus, they ship worldwide, so no matter where you are, you can enjoy their incredible teas. I can't recommend Dessoi enough! 🌿🍵

Advancing Urban Sustainability: The Role of Modern Victory Gardens

Hello r/sustainable community,

I’m exploring the revival of Victory Gardens, adapted for today’s urban environments with a focus on sustainability and efficient use of resources. The aim is to integrate modern gardening technologies such as hydroponics, aeroponics, aquaponics, and vertical soil towers to make food production more accessible in urban settings while minimizing environmental impact.

These systems can drastically reduce the need for soil and large water inputs and eliminate the use of chemical fertilizers, aligning with sustainable urban development goals:

•	Hydroponics conserves water and space by growing plants in a nutrient-rich solution, without soil.
•	Aeroponics uses even less water than hydroponics, spraying roots with a nutrient mist.
•	Aquaponics combines aquaculture with hydroponics, creating a symbiotic environment where plant and fish life support each other.
•	Vertical Gardening maximizes vertical space, making it possible to grow gardens on balconies, walls, or in other compact urban areas.

I’d love to hear from anyone who has integrated these technologies into their urban lifestyle:

1.	What benefits have you observed in terms of sustainability and efficiency?
2.	What are the challenges of maintaining these systems in an urban environment?
3.	How can urban planners and policymakers better support the adoption of these technologies in cities?

This discussion could provide valuable insights into how urban areas across the world can become more self-sustaining and environmentally friendly. Looking forward to your thoughts and experiences!

Pricing advise to a climate startup

Hey community!

I'm Product Manager in a climate fintech startup, we're building a platform for retail investors and giving them access to invest in established profitable climate companies with a proven track record and proven carbon reduction.

I would like to ask you a quick question, about pricing.

So let's imagine a hypothetical situation, where you have several options to invest money. The minimum investment is 1,000 CHF, and you have several options for how your interest rate can look like:

  1. Constant percent: 5% for 3 years
  2. Percent depending on the timeline: 3% for 2 years, 5% for 3 years, 7% for 5 years
  3. Percent depending on the amount: from 1-5k = 4%, 5-10k = 5%, from 10k = 7%, also for 3 years.

So which variant would you prefer and which amount would you like to invest? (hypothetically)

Thank you for your help in advance!

Playing golf sustainably

I’m mindful of sustainability and as my name implies, I generally implement sustainable practices when it suits me.

My recently purchased golf bag is a 13 year old Ping G20 cart bag.

I carry a mix of newly purchased and second hand clubs.

I’ve tried bamboo castle tees but they broke after one or two hits so I currently stick with plastic tees that tend to get lost (rarely) than break.

More recently though, I have been purchasing reclaimed golf balls both in Mint and Grade A condition. The quality of the balls are fine and aren’t detrimental to my game, they cost much less and have the added benefit of reducing the carbon footprint of manufacturing and transporting them to the UK - most are produced in the USA, Thailand, Taiwan and a few other places far from here.

For those who are interested I have made a video documenting the quality of the pro v1s I purchased.

There are no affiliate links and the balls were purchased entirely with my own money.

we made a free tool to find any clothing item secondhand to spend less and reduce your carbon footprint ♻️ [class project]

Hi guys! My friend and I were frustrated by the high prices of mid-to-high-end fashion brands online.

So we created a tool called Encore for our class that links the best second-hand and cheaper alternatives for your favorite clothing items 🍃

If you are interested in trying it out, just make an account and start searching here - https://www.chat.shopencore.ai

It's similar to having a personal fashion assistant - type what you're looking for, chat with it, and it searches through hundreds of resale/secondhand sites (like Grailed, Thredup, Vinted, Ebay, etc.) to find the best deals and reccomendations for your needs

Our project aims to lessen the fashion industry's carbon footprint, which accounts for 3-8% of global CO2 emission. Thank you!
