On March 1st, 2017, the World Bank approved a $145.5 million loan to improve water availability in drought vulnerable areas to the Republic of Botswana. It is only because of the stable economy from the diamond industry that the Republic of Botswana was able to receive this loan. #kalaharidreamdiamond

PURSUE YOUR PURPOSE 💕 And help her pursue hers. 💕 When you become a Compassionate Entrepreneur, Trades of Hope will donate a school uniform to a child in Haiti!
Children in Haiti are required to wear uniforms to go to school, but the cost is prohibitive for many parents. Clothing shouldn’t stand between a child and their future!
The only way you could be this happy in the snow is if you’re WARM! It is so important to invest in high-quality winter apparel that will keep you toasty. If it's time to upgrade your coat, donate your old one and shop for one that is highly-reviewed and will last years. Not only will this save you money in the long run, but will help reduce waste too!
Another winter-warmth tip? Buy your winter boots a half-size up! We always love to wear thicker, warmer socks in the winter that would otherwise make a regular-sized boot too tight. You should never sacrifice your fuzzy socks, especially in the winter! 🧦❄️
Wooden toys for kids are getting more and more available. It’s great to see that there are so many new eco products coming out. It just shows that the consumer speaks! The less plastic we buy the less plastic is produced. Simple.

And they really live up to it by supporting the community with knowledge and tools to restore nature, reduce waste, ride and fix bikes, and live more sustainably.

Also, remember to pop in their stall at the Whau Chinese New Year Festival 2019 on 10th February and grab some eco-friendly products!
Team Taco, you rock! So much appreciation for these badass bartenders from around the world—from Chattanooga to Nairobi!—who are making thousands of cocktails and impeccably trimmed garnishes for San Antonio Cocktail Conference. Glad to spend some time with friends, new and old! #SACC2019

❗️Português logo abaixo !❗️☀️ I handicraft “necklaces” (Positive Circle) from natural materials only. I have collected materials from travels. I love to do it customized using as inspiration and reference a meaningful word from the person. ❤️
Diego is wearing the very first one. He has been wearing it pretty much every day and I updated his cotton cord and puff to the hemp one because I broke it by myself. 😊 People who have my art (Positive Circle) are around the world - Estonia, Brazil, USA, England, Mexico, Pakistan, Switzerland, Hati, Poland... 🙌
It is The Positive Circle! ☀️
☀️ “Colares” (Positive Circle) de artesanato com somente materiais naturais. Eu tenho coletado materiais de viagens. Eu amo fazê-los personalizados, usando uma palavra de grande significado pra pessoa como referência e inspiração. ❤️
Diego está usando o primeiríssimo. Ele tem usado quase todos os dias, eu atualizei o cordão de algodão e o puff para o cânhamo porque eu mesma o quebrei. 😊 Pessoas que têm a minha arte (Positive Circle) em todo o mundo - Estónia, Brasil, EUA, Inglaterra, México, Paquistão, Suíça, Hati, Polônia... 🙌

With Veganuary in full force, I have been reading quite a bit about protein and if we are getting enough, especially those following a vegan or vegetarian diet.
UK recommendations suggest that the average adult is advised to eat 0.75g of protein for each kilogram they weigh. So on average, men should be eating 55g and women 45g per day. According to the National Diet and Nutrition Survey, men and women are eating a lot more protein than they actually need.
Many people still consider meat, fish, eggs and dairy to be your main sources of protein however, you can get enough protein whether you consume it from animal or plant sources.
With that in mind, here’s a list of plant-based foods that are good sources of protein - some might even surprise you.
🍴Quinoa - A complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids. Quinoa is also gluten-free, and high in fibre, iron and magnesium.
🍴Beans & Lentils - Some have more than others but all are a great source of protein and used to replace meat in many vegan or vegetarian meals (such as my vegan spaghetti bolognese ☝🏽)
🍴Wholemeal/Seeded Bread - You might not have thought your toast in the morning was contributing to your protein intake, but two slices of wholemeal bread has around 10g protein. Even more when topped with peanut butter!
🍴Hummus - Made from chickpeas and can be a great snack with veggies or spread on a bagel. Green peas are also very underrated and can be a convenient addition to most dishes.
🍴Greek Yoghurt - great to add to your cooking for extra protein and to add a more creamy texture.
🍴Soya, Tofu & Edamame - Another complete protein providing all your essential amino acids that you can only get from certain foods.

there’s no better dinner spot than at the top of a relentless uphill climb, I’m sure of it. This year I resolve to bring my own cutlery, reduce my single use plastics, and be a greener traveler. I partnered with @Humangear for refillable shampoo tubes, cutlery, and fun and funky colored bowls like this one. Hit the link in my bio for ways to reduce your carbon footprint as a traveler #gohumango
