Happy Monday! The world is in a strange place right now and we’re all trying to get used to this new – but temporary – new norm. For a while now I’ve wanted to get the ball rolling on a monthly round up of interesting things I’ve read lately. So, what better time than now, when many are spending a lot of time stuck at home.
Here’s the first monthly round up of things that have caught my interest lately:
The Monthly Round up #1
- The Founder of Max Hamburger chain launches the Food Planet Prize which aims to identify, showcase and reward important initiatives designed to re-invent our food chain and help establish a sustainable food system within the planet’s boundaries. Finding a more sustainable way of producing, using and discarding of food is crucial in solving the climate crisis so initiatives like these are great in encouraging and aiding in finding solutions.
- The Guardian update their language on climate matters to “more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world”. The changes include: “climate crisis” or “climate emergency” instead of “climate change” (climate change no longer accurately describes the seriousness of the situation) and “global heating” instead of “global warming”.
- Here’s an interesting article about what it’s like to be a vintage fashion scouter or vintage picker, which is increasing in demand.
- Train prices between Stockholm and Gothenburg are getting cheaper (article in Swedish) – it’s significantly cheaper to take the train than to fly between the cities. Hopefully this encourages more people to opt for environmentally friendly train travel over flying the short distance.
- Guide Michelin introduces a new sustainability emblem – The new emblem coincides with the release of the Nordic Countries Guide 2020 and highlights restaurants who are at the forefront of sustainable gastronomy practices.
- The Future of Clothes: These 3 Startups Help you rent or resell everyday items.
