    16700695_10154523006353635_6752623665189661583_o
    Tsavo, an extremely dry region in Kenya, faces severe water scarcity due to sparse rain. The large variety of wild animals living in the Tsavo West National Park are facing the music too – elephants, antelopes and many more. Apart from just realizing their plight, someone actually doing something about it is the very concerned Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua. Seeing how the extreme drought conditions of Kenya leave the animals without any water, a compassionate Mwalua has vowed never to let the animals go thirsty and therefore drives long distances every day in a big water delivery truck to fill up the empty waterholes.

    It’s Not Easy Going Green – Not Even Today

    eco-friendly-business
    Being eco-friendly in everyday life can be a tough job. No matter if you drive a car, get your geek on with a laptop with low power consumption or only wear clothes made of natural fiber produced and harvested with the utmost respect to the environment, you’ll encounter not only a ton of products that were made using eco-unfriendly methods but further tons that conceal their true nature, often lying about their origins. If only things were as simple as they are in the digital world. Or are they? Digital products, no matter if they are songs, pictures, or games you can play at Euro Palace, have no direct impact on the environment (that’s why a digital invoice is better than a printed one), yet the servers they are stored on can often have quite a significant carbon footprint. Luckily, most web hosting companies, including the one hosting the servers for Euro Palace, have committed to reducing their contribution to global warming significantly over the years. Soon, we’ll be able to play Euro Palace games knowing that we do the right thing for our world by supporting the global use of renewable energy. Being eco-friendly and doing the right thing today is still not the easiest thing to do due to the lack of transparency of the supply chain.

    Montreal to completely ban plastic water bottles

    rtxpmme
    Montreal surprised and delighted the world when they announced the complete ban of plastic bags from 2018. Now, Mayor Denis Coderre made another surprising announcement last month that could change the scenario of plastic usage and waste management across the city. He spoke on the ban of plastic water bottles, labelling them as an ‘environmental nuisance’. In an email, the Mayor wrote, “More than 700 million of these single-use bottles end up in Quebec’s landfills every year. In Montreal, we are lucky to have excellent tap water, which is tested several times per day. We tend to forget that our water is of such good quality, that some companies even bottle it directly and then people find themselves paying for it.” This makes so much sense as it brings with it not only economical but also financial benefits.
