5 things I have done today to help the planet… [Day 009 – 23 May ’19]

It’s been a green, green day today.

The insects have been bitten, the electric cars are charging and the fashion is sustaining.

Here are five more for the planet…

1. I voted Green

In Britain today we had the European Elections.

The elections in the UK were little more than a pseudo second referendum on Brexit.

As well as opposing Brexit the Green Party do have a full set of planet considerate policies that I support. Some many streets ahead of the other party.

I voted for the Green Party.

2. Experimenting with Insects

You may recall a few days back, in response to a comment by @mattockfs, I placed an online order with Crunchy Critters for a selection of edible insects.

They have now arrived and today we tried them.

We opened the tasting session with the soft option of ‘Belgian Milk Chocolate Covered Crickets’. Not the most endearing chocolate confectionery I have ever had but perfectly passable.

Next up the snack tree were the Cheese & Onion Crickets. I was expecting something akin to Cheese & Onion crisps. But these were just plain unpleasant – and bordering on inedible.

We thought it might be poor quality cheese and onion flavouring, but when we later tasted the plain crickets we realised it was the crickets.

Our final selections were the plain dried Crickets, Locusts, Buffalo Worms and Mealworms.

The crickets really were not good at all and will be heading to the chickens tomorrow.

The other three were not massively tasty, but weren’t unpleasant at all and were perfectly edible.

I am certainly not going to be in any rush to order these again. But if I could rear these sorts of insects myself I would definitely look to include them in our diet – maybe in soups or stir-frys as an additional low impact protein source.

3. Update on Electric Cars and Charging Points

As well as the very good response from Tesco about installing electric car charging points, I have also had positive, although non time committal replies from Marks & Spencer and from Morrisons.

Morrisons said…

Thanks for getting in touch in regards to our plans for electrical charging ports.

At the moment we are still working on the plans for getting these charging points in place, and it is likely the stores you have mentioned [Aberystwyth & Carmarthen] will have the facilities next year.

Marks & Spencer said…

All of our stores eventually will have the charging facilities available but at the moment, we are making sure our larger newer developments are equipped with them. It’s something we are definitely putting in to place, but no date of the change and I hope you can appreciate things like this do take time to change.

I have also had a reply from my local Town Council. They have just committed funds to install two charging points in the main central car park in town.

So the charging points are coming. In the next couple of years I think the availability of charging points will no longer be an issue even in rural Wales. But we will keep pushing.

On the electric car front I am going to see, and hopefully test drive, the Renault Zoe at the weekend.

This will be electric car viewing number 2. We hope to look at five before we make a decision.

4. Backing a Sustainable Fashion event for Wales

Yesterday I mentioned that I had found out via Twitter about a Sustainable Fashion event being planned in Wales.

The organiser Helen O’Sullivan of Sustainable Fashion Wales has taken her inspiration from the global campaign Fashion Revolution.

Helen has set up a Kickstarter to raise funds to put on the event.

I have made a small pledge as it looks a good event to get sustainability issues to a younger audience interested in fashion.

5. The Daily Donation – The Green Party

I have been a supporter of the Green Party on and off for all my adult life.

It kicked off when I went to a talk by Jonathon Porritt when I was 18 back in the ’70’s.

I was just becoming aware of politics and environmental activism. Jonathon’s “show me the dead bodies” references in his speech really got me ignited. The rest, as they say, is my history.

Today, the Green Party took part in the European Elections. Elections that were not supposed to take place in Britain because of Brexit.

But Brexit hasn’t happened and the Elections have.

The Green Party opposes Brexit.

I voted for the Green Party.

They do politics but their politics are the closest to being planet positive of any party.

My £10 donation today goes to support those planet-positive politics.

Five more in the bag.

Anyone want to join with doing five dailies?

5 things I have done today to help the planet… [Day 007 – 21 May ’19]


Another day, another way.

In fact five more ways to help the planet.

A bit of good investing, a bit of volunteering, a bit of webinaring, a bit of healthy shopping and a bit of badger adoption.

Anything take your fancy…?

1. Investing in the Good Club

The Good Club are doing good things.

I mentioned before that I have recently started buying organic and planet friendly products from https://goodclub.co.uk/.

They haven’t got a massive range yet and their website is a bit cumbersome to use but their prices are very keen offering savings of around 25% against local wholefood and healthfood stores.

But Good Club is looking to take it five steps beyond the usual online eco-retailer and tackle the issue of food packaging waste head on.

They are currently crowdfunding to build an innovative closed loop, zero waste home delivery system.

Their investment target is £400,000 and they have so far raised over £350K with 8 days to go.

UK supermarkets currently create 800,000 tonnes of plastic every year.

I have today made a small investment to show support and to track how the project progresse.

2. Volunteering for FoE Cymru

Although I have largely adopted the pose of ‘armchair activist’ at the moment, I still would like to get out there in the thick of local group campaigning.

So today I contacted Friends of the Earth Cymru to find out what activities they have in my area.

There is also a Transition group not far away so I am going to check out what they are doing to see if I can help at all.

I am rather out of touch with local group campaigning so I am very interested to see where this takes me.

3. AECB Webinar – Climate Change Starts at Home

The Association for Environment Conscious Building is an organisation that “works with its members to inspire, develop and share sustainable building practice”.

I have been a member in the past and even found a ‘green architect’ through their database some years back.

By chance I spotted that they were running a free webinar over lunchtime.

The webinar presented by building physicist and passivhaus consultant, Dr Sarah Price was titled “Climate Change Starts at Home”.

It focused on the major need to reduce energy usage in the housing stock of Britain to help combat climate change.

One term I hadn’t come across before is the idea of ‘Whole House Retrofit Plans’ and Retrofit Co-ordinators.

By chance the UK Government has just a few days ago announced a Whole House Retrofit (WHR) competition.

The webinar is available to view if you would like to watch it…

AECB Webinar : Climate Change Starts at Home with Sarah Price

4. Iechyd Da Health Food Shop Llandovery

Today I happened to be in Llandovery.

When I am there I always visit the Iechyd Da Health Food Shop.

It is a very old school whole/health food school run by a guy called Jake and crammed full of all sorts of interesting healthy, wholesome, vegan, vegetarian and organic products.

I inevitably find some things I haven’t tried before. Today it was Organic Sunflower Mince from Just Whole Foods and Granovita’s Quinoa Pate with Kale & Herbs.

This is a fascinating little shop. If you are ever in Llandovery check it out and support this great independent shop.

5. The Daily Donation – Badger Adoption – Wildlife Trusts Wales

I think badgers are great.

We have some on our land and I sometimes catch sight of them if I am coming home late at night.

Alas though in farming areas they are persecuted because of the link with TB.

To help protect them The Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales is offering a fundraising scheme to ‘adopt’ a badger for £25.

This helps the Trust with their work promoting a Tuberculosis vaccine as a viable alternative to culling.

Today I adopted a badger!

I am really getting into the flow of this challenge.

It is so much fun.

A few people are already joining in including @steevc, @revisesociology and @shanibeer.

If you can’t manage five, one new thing to help the planet each day would be great..

5 things I have done today to help the planet… [Day 006 – 20 May ’19]

Today got off to a buzzing start.

I started early and got a lot done.

But then I read this report on the BBC and I realised there is so much more to do.

Maybe I need to up my five a day to ten a day…

1. Moving to an ethical bank – Triodos

I currently have my business bank account with NatWest (RBS) and my personal account with Co-operative Bank.

NatWest has never made any great claims about its ethical or environmental credentials.

The Co-op has – but has rather fallen from grace in recent years.

It’s time for me to get my act together and move to a bank that is better fitting with my planetary aspirations.

I took a peak at the Ecology Building Society which I have used before but it is not a full bank and has a somewhat limited range of services.

Instead I chose Triodos Bank which has a very strong ethical and enviromental basis to all they do.

I have applied for a Personal Acccount in the first instance, but a business account may follow shortly.

2. Hey Tesco, can I get a plug-in?

A couple of days ago I mentioned that I was contacting the supermarkets we use asking if they have plans to install electric car charging points at their stores.

We are getting an electric car this summer and I am really keen to see the network of charging points expand – particularly in Wales.

Today I got my first response from a supermarket. A very helpful customer services person called Jenny from Tesco actually called me this afternoon to tell me their charging point plans.

They have done a deal with Pod Point to install electric car charging points at their stores.

Tesco have recently put their first charging station in Wales at their Llansamlet store in Swansea.

They have plans now to install charging points at 600 stores over the next 3 years. This represents about a quarter of all their stores.

Three electric cheers to Tesco. Bring them on.

3. There’s no poo on my head

A couple of years ago I read an article on Treehugger about the ‘No Poo’ movement.

Seemed a bit weird at the time – I had used shampoo to wash my hair twice a week for the past 56 years.

But I decided to give it a go.

Twice a week now I just rinse my hair in the shower – nothing added, just eau naturelle.

For the first couple of weeks I wasn’t sure. How could I still be clean?

But then I just forgot about it and let the natural oils in my hair do their job.

Now it is doesn’t even cross my mind to use shampoo.

I’ve saved shampoo, I’ve saved plastic, I’ve saved money.

Nothing mind-blowing … maybe 6 bottles of shampoo a year.

But imagine if just 10% of the population of the UK joined the No Poo movement that could be 200 million plastic bottles of shampoo saved each year.

4. Search, Search and plant a tree

If you use the web and are even a little bit eco inclined you really ought to be using Ecosia (ecosia.org).

Ecosia is a search engine that plants trees.

It uses the profits from promoted sites in its searches to fund tree planting projects around the world.

So far they have funded over 55 million trees.

I think it was @steevc who first alerted me to Ecosia.

I have been using it on and off for a while but today I installed it as my default search engine in Brave.

5. The Daily Donation – World Bee Day – Friends of the Earth

It’s been World Bee Day today.

Bees have been having a hard time in recent years – I figured they could do with a little help.

Friends of the Earth UK have been running a bee campaign – The Bee Cause – for a while now.

As part of their campaign FoE are offering a Bee Saver Kit.

So for today’s donation I gave £15 and a Bee Saver Kit is now buzzing its way to me.

I am getting a real buzz out of this challenge.

I am wondering where I can take this project.

I am already promoting it on Twitter.

All suggestions welcome for more ways to grow this…

Five ways Steem has changed my life, and what comes next…

In my 50+ years I have been involved in many causes, many organisations, many communities and many new activities. Some for shorter, some for longer.

But of all of these, the past 18 months on Steem has been more intense, more condensed and more all round impactful on my life than any other of my past endeavours.

Steem has taught me, steem has changed me, steem has made a indelible mark on my life…

1. The World of Crypto

Steem has been my entry point to the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchains.

As well as learning about Steem itself it has prompted me to explore other parts of the crypto world. I am seeing clearly that this is a world with many, many, many possibilities.

With every crypto stone I turn over another idea sprouts up before me. Fertile lands are just over the horizon.

2. Justice, Equality & A Dollar A Day

The single most important part of Steem for me is without a doubt A Dollar A Day.

Running this charitable giving organisation on Steem has opened my eyes so, so wide.

Talking directly to the people at the other end of the line, hearing how they live, about the problems they face and the solutions they are trying to implement has changed my outlook on the world big time and a half.

I have connected so directly with the people I work with. It is difficult not to have a heightened sense of responsibility to get involved and do the very, very best I can to help.

And A Dollar A Day has helped, a little at least. Even in these difficult days A Dollar A Day has managed to raise approaching US$ 5000 since the project started in May.

This has clearly demonstrated the potential of the Steem blockchain to do good in the world. I do so hope A Dollar A Day can continue to grow and develop in its present form, in its present place.

3. Radio Shows

Becoming a show host on MSP Waves has been my biggest personal revelation from being involved in Steem.

I had never hosted radio shows before, and I would never have dreamed of doing so if not for Steem.

And it has been such a fascinating and enjoyable part of my steem life. Since starting in January, through the various incarnations, I have put out almost 70 shows.

What’s more, on those shows I have now interviewed around 400 steemians. That has been a joy, a pleasure, a privilege, an honour to get to know so many people on the platform in this way.

4. Vegetarian & Vegan

Back in March I interviewed @teamsteem on my Alternative Lifestyle Show on MSP Waves. We talked at length about his choice to be vegan. Then a few weeks later I brought together 10 steem vegans for a vegan special edition of the show. This covered all the different angles of why people become vegan… health, ethics, environment etc.

I had never been a big meat eater. But since those shows I have not eaten any. I am totally vegetarian.

Going full vegan, particularly having our own chickens, has been a longer, and more windy journey. But the ultimate goal is coming close.

I feel healthier for it.

5. Sleep

The other four have been big positives. But it would be dishonest for me not to include this rather more negative impact of steem.

With a 24 hour round the world community I commonly find myself chatting on Discord into the wee small hours with people in earlier timezones.

And there is always more to do. Posts to write, comments to make, shows to listen to, interviews to arrange, donations to send. I set myself steem targets each day – and I try to get them done before going to sleep.

This is not good. I have written about it before. I know it has got to change.

It will, I am trying harder.


So Steem has changed my life. Mostly for the better.

Whatever comes next these past 18 months have been fruitful.

I will wish for many months more…

 

 

Pennsif’s Progress – Can Steem save the world?

As I mentioned in a recent post I am a utilitarian.

I have to find a use in everything I do.

Steem is no exception.

I have never been a social media person so that potential use of steem doesn’t really cut the mustard for me.

When I arrived on steem I thought I would just be writing about prepping and homesteading. And I did. And it worked. But the audience was small.

As a platform to disseminate ideas and spread the word it is very limited. The audience is just too small.

There had to be another use for steem to keep me steeming on.

Was it as a means to earn money, a secondary income steam?  Well maybe, but even after 16 months, and now earning moderately good post rewards, for the hours I put in I am earning less than a third of the national minimum wage in Britain.

So there had to be something more…

For me I have found that something with A Dollar A Day.

This has given me my purpose on steem. Through running this project and so far raising over $3000 I can help make the world in some modest way a better place.

Students are learning, children are being fed, women are learning skills, trees are being planted.

It is only small, but it is a million times bigger than nothing.

Now I want to go further. The power of steem is becoming clearer.

We have in our hands a tool that has never existed before in the history of humankind – the ability to send money anywhere, anytime, instantly and for free.

Steem is an equaliser, an amplifier, and potentially a powerful agent for change.

What more can we do with it?

How can we use it to make the world a better place?

We can provide good jobs at good rates of pay around the world like @oracle-d, we can fund projects that make lives better like @fundition, we can disseminate real news and spread the truth like @informationwar, we can clear rubbish and pollution like @cleanplanet.

I am pretty sure that most people on steem will agree. The world is far from perfect and it is a world that needs saving.

How can steem play a part in that?

 

Pennsif’s Progress #587 – Who should I tell about steem?

Back at the turn of the year when steem was riding high I started a SignUp100 personal quest to recruit a hundred people on to steem during 2018.

With steem shooting to the clouds, and my wallet looking fat and healthy, it was quite easy. A quick glance at the dollar signs, a mumbled “you too could have this” and they were signing up on the dotted line.

In the first few weeks I scored a dozen. 

But it all went wrong. The steem price went south, my new recruits scattered in panic and confusion, and only two hung on.

I learnt my lesson. Never utter those fateful words “blog and earn” – blog and yearn might be better.

In those weird old days I would tell just about anyone that moved all about steem.

Now I am more choosy. I look for a reason why steem might actually be useful for them before telling them about it.

Can steem improve or enhance some element of their life that they are already doing? Will it add value?

Ideally it shouldn’t be that way. If steem aches for mass adoption it really should offer something for everyone.

For the moment steem is an acquired taste. It requires something of a moral commitment and a pledge of allegiance to the ways of steem.

It still needs a big glowing neon sign above the door that says “Handle With Care – Enter at your own risk”.

For new recruits you really need to lead them gently by the hand, whisper sweet upvotes in their ears and stay by their side until they are brave enough to venture out alone.

Putting it into practice

I am now having another go.

This time I am targeting better. Through my new @communityaction project I am particularly looking at bringing on board charities and community organisations.

First up I am working with a Welsh conservation charity.

They are interested in promoting their work, hopefully raising funds and exploring ways they might be able to reward volunteers. They should be up and running by next week.

Second up, I have recruited someone who makes children’s video games. They are already on Steam but they are interested in exploring what Steem has to offer now.

For both of them I am setting up their accounts through steeminvite.com.  That will at least knock down one of steem’s naughty and nasty technical barriers.

I am hoping with this more measured approach I can up the retention rate beyond the miserable 10 – 15% that seems to be the norm for steem.

Slow and steady, keep them close and vote them often…

 

Pennsif’s Progress #594 – My first day at the Food Bank

Today I started volunteering at the local Food Bank, or Banc Bwyd as it is known in Welsh.

From what I have seen of food banks in the big cities my local one is rather a low key affair.

The population of the town and surrounding catchment area is only about 3,000. There is certainly some unemployment and poverty in the area but it is quite well ‘contained’ so the ‘clients’ for the food bank are measured only in handfuls each week at most.

The foodbank is only open for business 3 days a week, staffed by a rota of volunteers mainly drawn from local churches.

I have just become one of the volunteers and today was my induction day. I will mainly be ‘on call’ for the food bank on Wednesdays.

When I am on call I will get a phone call when I client want to come to collect a supply of food. Then I have an hour to go to the supermarket to pick up sufficient bread, milk, spread, fresh fruit and vegetables according to the size of the client’s family and whether they have children or not.

Then I take the fresh goods back to the food bank HQ to make up the rest of the ‘food parcel’. The aim is to supply enough food for 3 meals for 3 days.

The food parcel is made up mainly of tinned and dried food, pasta, tinned meat meals, cereals, tea, coffee etc according to a prescribed menu structure. Parcels also include toilet rolls, toothpaste, soap, sanitary towels.

[This is not a photo of the current food bank supplies – it is about ten times more than this now.]

Clients (people needing food) are not allowed to contact the Food Bank directly – they have to be referred by one of the ‘agencies’ both third sector and local authority. Each agency is initially given 10 vouchers to use for people in need.

A client is only allowed a maximum of three food parcels in succession to cover any difficult, emergency situations. This is commonly when their benefit payments have been delayed. Then the agencies are supposed to have sorted out their situations.

The Food Bank has plenty of food. It is also has plenty of money from donations.

One of its biggest problems is ensuring the food stock gets rotated so the oldest is always used first. That is real prepper territory!

Alas no clients came today but it was fascinating to see how this food bank operates.

I see all things nowadays through steem-tinted spectacles – but I am so far struggling to see any steem angle on a food bank.

I suspect there is but I just need to think this through a bit harder.

Just for interest I saw this recent article in a leading British newspaper about food banks…


On the way home from the food bank I visited another local charity who are going to make use of a dozen leverarch files I no longer need.

Steem did slip into the conversation and they are keen to sign up.

That has given me a whole new idea.

But it is 3am now so that will have to wait for my next post…

 

 

 

Pennsif’s Progress #599 – Time for change Copy

I am not quite sure why but I feel it is time for a change.
It might be the life jolt as my two eldest daughters go off to university in September.
Maybe it is because I will shortly be entering my 25th year of trading with my business.
Perhaps it is reaching one year on steem.
Or is it just because I am getting ever older…
But it is time for a change.
Talking with @kennyskitchen on my Alternative Lifestyle Show yesterday made the idea bubble up to the surface again. Kenny spoke about how he had spent some years travelling around taking on new challenges, living on the edge of his comfort zone and always looking to be ‘levelling up’.
That gaming idea of levelling up really struck a note for me. To keep on growing you really need to keep on leveling up in life. Learning new skills, meeting new people, absorbing new ideas, experiencing new experiences.
As you get older and accumulate more responsibilities of family, property, business the possibilities for change seem more limited.
In another few years some of those limitations will be removed and the options for locational and experiential change for me may open up again.
For now the change will have to be about doing more and doing different where I am, with the resources I have and the time available.
That is not so bad for me.
While in my younger years my change experiences involved a lot of travelling around the world, in my later years my passion for change became more directed outwards.
I became a campaigner, an activist and an organiser.
In various shapes and sizes, and in various roles and guises, I have been doing battle for change now for 40 years.
It is in those footsteps I want to re-tread and redirect my current efforts.
That does not signal that I want to lessen my involvement with steem, in fact quite the opposite.
I am a strong believer in the potential power of steem.
For me personally I want to see greater uses of steem.
Through my work on the A Dollar A Day project I have witnessed glimpses of a powerful use of steem.
In little, tiny, small ways steem has changed lives.
But I believe it can do so much more.
Now I want to take out steem out on to the frontline, wear it proudly on the streets, thrust it into the limelight and even chose it as my weapon of choice in hand to hand combat if it comes to that.
I want to explore new ways to use steem as an agent of change.
I have no magic silver bullet for steem, but I am cooking up a few ideas.
In the next day or two or three I will be posting about my new project.
This will be my change for the moment. Not a full 180, but definitely an appreciable rebearing.
First though I’ve got to do some jiggling and some juggling with my rather overloaded steem schedule.
What gives…

Pennsif’s Progress #609 – PSST – steem can make the sun rise

As I mentioned in a previous post I came to steem for the sunshine.

My big goal for the last couple of years has been to install a solar PV system to start us on the journey of taking our homestead off-grid.

But it’s a big investment and I came across crypto as a way to build the capital needed for my solar installation.

I found Bitcoin first and then came steem…

My year of steem has been one amazing journey.

I have learnt so much. I have met so many amazing people. My perspectives on the world have broadened a thousand-fold.

And I have changed. How could I not.

Every day, in every way, with every word of every conversation with every person I connect with around the world.

Venezuela, India, Philippines, Australia, USA, Denmark, Ireland, Argentina, France, Spain, Nicaragua……

In any single day I can be talking with people from 20 different countries, about 40 different topics.

Never before in my life have I been in a situation like this.

It is changing me. For the better I think. I can do little things. That make big changes.

I can put shoes on a child in Venezuela, I can put scientific equipment in a classroom in the Philippines, I can teach tree planting to children in Cameroon.

I talk. I learn. I think. I change.

You will hear so often on steem that old rusty adage – Come for the money, Stay for the community.

But it is way beyond community.

I am being assimilated. I am beginning to see the bigger picture. I am starting to feel the wider pain.

I am now plugged into the global brain.

So where do I go next – in this post and on steem.

I still want to get a solar PV system so I can disconnect from the grid.

Maybe I should look at SMT’s – they are all the rage.

Psst, have you heard about about Pennsif’s Smart Solar Tokens?

It is all about the money.

But not the earning. It’s about the giving.

It is about the amplifying and about the equalisation.

One dollar a day is all it takes. A packet of chocolate biscuits for me or a day’s food for a family of four on the other side of the world.

Never before has humanity had this magical tool. We can create wealth, and we can transfer it, for free, anywhere in the world, in seconds.

What power we hold in our hands. Let us show the world the power of steem.

Steem can make the sun rise.
