Climate Guardians is an artistic political act by ClimActs, an Australian theater group. Climate Angels are a group of engaged women, dressed in white with enormous wings, creating breathtaking climate protest. Their use of the angel iconography highlights the vital role of guardianship of our world’s precious natural resources. The angelic activists appear at major rallies, backdropping or intercepting political events, and bringing a theatrical and angelic presence to public demonstrations as well as non-violent direct actions to support demands for climate justice.

Nature’s paintings preserved in stone
Pietra paesina, also called ‘landscape stone’, ‘ruin stone’, ‘ruiniform marble’ and ‘Florentine marble’, is collected for centuries. It’s a kind of limestone of which the natural veins of the rock have arranged themselves in shapes of city skylines, landscapes and ruins. The limestone needs to be cut into slabs and polished before it will reveal it’s mysterious paintings.
Hereby a selection of #veganchic statement pieces, inspiration for the earth keepers out there <3
“Veganism isn’t a goal to attain. It’s the means by which we can attain our goals. Compassion is the goal. Veganism is a way to get there.” Colleen Patrick Goudreau

Everyday we buy items, use products without thinking the trace it will leave behind. Just the fact that a plastic bottle disappears from our eye sight after 1 minute of usage, does absolutely not mean they are gone for good. In fact, plastic sticks around for between 450 – 1000 years. In less then a century hundreds of millions more tons of plastic are added to the ever-accumulating cauldron of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans, rivers and landscapes. Plastic is causing a huge environmental problem. Can we put an end to this???
Change is possible. Some visionary people are dedicated to take on a plastic-free lifestyle. One leading figure in that movement is the amazing Lauren Singer. She lives a waste free life in New York and spreads her wisdom by documenting her zero waste journey through her blog called Trash is for tossers. Lauren defines Zero Waste as “not to produce any garbage, no sending anything to landfill, no throwing anything in a trash can”. She does recycle and does compost stuff and all other trash (non-disposable, unrecyclable) she produced for 3 years was the size of a small jar!
The highlight of Lauren’s blog is the ultimate list of zero waste alternatives for everyday items, making life easier for the ones who wish to live a waste free life. She even has recipes for things like toothpaste and cleaning products.
On her blog you can learn many other ways how to reduce your trash. You can also check out her TedTalk here and this is her Instagram. Here you can find some more people that kicked plastic out of their life.
Discover this photo serie by Robert Voit called New Trees, 2003, based on cellphone towers disguised as trees around the globe (USA, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, UK). Ivo Branislav and Aubrey Trevor Thomes are the creators of this puzzling invention and their first physical tower, made from non-toxic plastics, appeared in Cape Town in 1996. A company called Larson Camouflage built also similar structures for style-sensitive network companies in the American Southwest.
