We're kicking off our 52 steps to a greener lifestyle with an important message! Join the Veganuary movement and help the planet! β›”πŸ„πŸƒ It is true that animal agriculture is the biggest contributor to global warming. The emission of the animal agriculture is higher than ALL transport worldwide combined! πŸš‚πŸšŒπŸš•πŸš˜πŸš’πŸ›« πŸ‘‰ One litre milk uses about 680 litre of water, 1 pound of beef uses 2400 gallons of water, while 1 pound of tofu only uses up 244 gallons. Even though water comes out of your tap, it is in fact a very rare good and vital for everyone to survive! πŸ’§ πŸ‘‰ Animal agriculture uses up a lot of room! Instead of eating the crops we grow directly, we decide to feed them to animals. This means we use 20 times more land to feed animals to feed us. This causes massive deforestation and habitat loss for wildlife. πŸ‘‰ The fish in our supermarkets is caught by commercial fisheries using long line fishing and giant nets to meet fish demand. The ocean's fish population is depleting and endangered species like turtles, sharks, whales and dolphins suffer and die, covered under the name 'bycatch'. πŸ‘‰ Being vegan saves lives of other sentinent beings and it is good for your own health! πŸ‘€ Watch the following documentaries that go deeper into the environmental aspect of animal agriculture: πŸ‘ Food Inc. πŸ‘ Meat the Truth πŸ‘ Cowspiracy @cowspiracy πŸ’š And check out @weareveganuary for inspiration and recipes for your vegan month!  Let us know what you think!  Have you tried vegan before?  Are you vegan and what changed your mind?  And where are the amazing vegan since birth people?

With an important message (see picture 4) and a pretty cool activity we'll leave year 2018!  We met Nok from @maikhaomarineturtlefoundation to see all their amazing conservation efforts and to meet Phuket's most famous sea turtle: Tommy! 🐒  He is five years old and was born with no eyes, a rising problem in sea turtle population that yet has to be researched. Due to his condition he will never be able to live in the wild, but he can be an ambassador for his entire species and educate many about  the threads that endanger their lives. πŸ€“  Together with his sister Kieaw, who was released four times but came back to the same beach over and over again as she lost her guidance ability he lives in the shelter at @jwmarriottphuket .  Guests can meet and feed the turtles to get up personal with two of the many reasons 🐒🐒 why conservation, like reducing plastic and  fish consumption, is so important.  The hotel itself is quite avant-garde and is already plastic straw free, dims their beach lights at night and even uses water made from the humidity of the air. πŸ’™  We were honored to feed blind Tommy today, feeling grateful for a big year for us and for many years to come. With conservation we found our destiny and we hope to inspire so many more to do good things for the planet!  Because nothing feels better than honest good intentions and actions! πŸ™  Hope you all have a smooth start into 2019!  See you next year! πŸ˜‰  And remember, always STAY POSITIVE! πŸ‘Œ πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature  #seaturtles #phuket #thailand #conservation #breakfreefromplastic #nomoreplastic #plasticfree #gozerowaste #govegan #veganuary #veganuary2019 #happynewyear #happynewyear2019 #byebye2018 #hello2019 #turtles #seaturtles  #ΠΏΡ…ΡƒΠΊΠ΅Ρ‚ #Ρ‚Π°ΠΉΠ»Π°Π½Π΄2018 #Ρ‚Π°ΠΉΠ»Π°Π½Π΄ #holidays #beachvibes #beachcleanup #shelter #vegancouple #travelblog #vegan #zerowaste
Merry Christmas to all our extended friends and family from our little family. πŸŽ„πŸŽ We hope you all have some amazing presents under the tree and enjoy the presence of your loved ones! ❀  As we are physically far away from our loved ones we decided to give some love and affection to some loving beings in need.  The @soidogfoundation on Phuket does an amazing job in caring for the countless strays on the island and all around Thailand.  They currently have about 550 dogs and 180 cats that are waiting for adoption and another 180 dogs and 150 cats in their on site hospital that (if their condition allows) go back to the streets, tattooed & sterilized!  For this week we adopted a run of about 20 dogs that we pet, groom and walk every day. These are our presents / presence  With so much love around we make sure we spread it all the way to wherever our friends and family currently are!  Very merry Christmas everyoneπŸ’šπŸŽ„ πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature  #christmas #merrychristmas #shelter #animals #doglove #adoptdontshop #adopt #volunteering #love #dogsofinstagram #weihnachten #feliznavidad #froheweihnachten #mercyforanimals #carnism #dogtrade #thailand #phuket #Ρ‚Π°ΠΉΠ»Π°Π½Π΄2018 #ΠΏΡ…ΡƒΠΊΠ΅Ρ‚ #ecotourism #soidog #soidogthailand #soidogfoundation #zerowaste #ecofriendly #breakfreefromplastic #lostinthailand
December, 24th! πŸŽπŸŽ„ Time for our last eco advent calendar window!  This one is all about your own health and well-being.  Being eco means for us staying happy and healthy ourselves.  So for the holidays we hope you can slow down, relax, unwind, enjoy the time with the family and friends. Don't rush around, take things the way they come, try not to get stressed. Everything will be so much more enjoyable and festive when you take away the expectation of everything being perfect. In the end, little mishaps are the memories and stories you'll tell every year over and over again.  Also for your own health, take a break and go out into nature. Enjoy a nice walk, breath in the fresh air and enjoy your surroundings. Watch the light shows at other houses or take a stroll into the woods to take a moment off all the Christmas madness.  Whatever makes you happy, do it and enjoy it!  With these words we wish you all and very merry Christmas! πŸŽ„πŸŽ Thank you @bax_and_julie for this beautiful winter wonderland shot. We're a bit jealous while we're sitting at a Thai beach sipping Pina Colada instead of mulled wine. πŸ€”πŸ˜Ž πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸŽ #ecoadventcalendar  #ecofriendly #eco #vegan #healthy #winter #snow #winderwonderland #lastchristmas #christmastree #christmas #weihnachten #feliznavidad #froheweihnachten #merrychristmas #festive #happyholidays #relax #unwind #stressfree #meditation #christmaseve #heiligabend #jinglebells #hike
What can be better than a big cleanup at sunset?  We believe nothing is and it gets even better when you meet new people with new ideas and new projects! πŸ’š  After a couple of spontaneous cleanups with just the two of us we now joined @trashherophuket for this #beachcleanup event! πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’› 20 volunteers + 2 hours = 500kg πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ 0,5 tonnes of trash that doesn't get washed away by the ocean anymore and that doesn't hurt any ocean wildlife anymore. πŸ’™πŸ³πŸ¬ Thanks team for this awesome work and for this awesome Christmas present we gave to nature!

One day to Christmas! Let's talk about clothes!  No matter how little we liked it, there was always at least one soft present under the Christmas tree. 🎁 Once we get older, though, it seems like we can't get enough clothes. πŸ’ƒ  And obviously we need a new fashionable Christmas jumper for the family each year. πŸ€”  Fashion is a huge industry and not much about it is eco friendly.  We will get into the clothes matter a little more detailed in the new year.  Here are some quick facts: πŸ‘‰ most clothes contain plastics (e.g. polyethylene) πŸ‘‰ while washing these plastics shed off and land in our water system as micro plastics πŸ‘‰ producing clothes produces a lot of emission πŸ‘‰ clothes are rarely produced in fair condition for the workers  With our H&M and Primark fast fashion we contribute to big climate problems.  Please don't overdo it for Christmas. You can sweater swap with friends or be bold and wear the same one again and again. Make it your tradition.  When you give clothes, make sure their are made fair trade and are made of natural material only.  If you want to know more about it you can obviously Google more about it. For now, we leave you with our typical phrase "Choose Wisely!" πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸŽ #ecoadventcalendar  #vegan #fashion #fastfashion #vegancouple #adventcalendar #adventskalender #christmas #christmasjumper #clothes #ecofriendly #microplastics #plasticocean #plasticfree  #choosewisely #love #breakfreefromplastic #jumper #weihnachten #travelblog #wanderlust #fortheplanet #fortheoceans #nomoreplastic #refuse #recycle #plastic
Please do not feed any wild animals! πŸ™πŸ™ There are many wild animals around in Thailand. In the parks we see squirrels 🐿 and monitors 🐊, in the cities there are plenty pigeons 🐦 and in temples there are many monkeys. πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ And everywhere we go we see tourists feeding them for the purpose to get a cute animal picture. πŸͺ🍞 Feeding wildlife is not a good thing for the animals and while we might think they appreciate the cookies, bread, nuts or whatever in fact it isn't all too healthy for them. πŸ’€  Besides the animal's health there are a lot more reasons NOT to feed animals.  Their behaviour changes. One thing you've noticed at those places is that animals are a lot more aggressive, people complaining about monkeys attacking them. That's all conditioned behaviour as they learned that people have food.  They are also a lot more aggressive to each other, which they usually wouldn't be. Babies get violently thrown around by dominant males while trying to grasp the best cookie available.  Their natural instinct of searching for natural food almost entirely disappears. By feeding wildlife you make animals that otherwise would be totally fine by themselves dependent on humans.  The same happens with any wild animal.  So please please stop feeding wildlife!πŸ™πŸ™ It is not good for the animals! once again if everyone just gave ONE cookie it is still thousands of cookies each day.  Please do not feed any wildlife! πŸ™πŸ™ πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature  #wildlife #monkeys #love #vegan #vegancouple #cookie #dontfeedtheanimals #monkeys #thailand #chiangrai #chiangmai #breakfreefromplastic #plasticfree #fortheanimals #healthy #tourists #travelblog #wanderlust #backpacker #phuket  #ΠΏΡ…ΡƒΠΊΠ΅Ρ‚ #Π½Π°ΠΌΠΎΡ€Π΅ #Ρ‚Π°ΠΉΠ»Π°Π½Π΄ #Ρ‚Π°ΠΉΠ»Π°Π½Π΄2018
Christmas is just around the corner, Christmas dinner and a lot of food coming up! πŸŽ„πŸŽ Today's Eco Window will be a short and rather simple one. πŸ‘‰ Skip the disposables at the Christmas table!  With Christmas sometimes being a lot more stressful than peaceful and quiet we might tend to the quick and easy solutions and hand out disposable dishes, cups or cutlery to spare us from dishwashing.  But the few minutes we spare with dishwashing is a tiny fraction of how long the single use plastic lasts and how long it can harm the environment. πŸ’š better make your table look festive and go for the silverware and porcelain! And for sure there's always someone who's happy to help with the dishes! πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸŽ #ecoadventcalendar  #ecofriendly #breakfreefromplastic #nomoreplastic #plasticfree #zerowaste #christmasdecorations #christmas #eco #zerowasteideas #vegan #vegancouple#love #family #stoptheplastictide #refusesingleuse #refuse #recycle #plastic #reducereuserecycle #reducewaste #bethechange #fortheplanet #weihnachten #adventcalendar #adventskalender
Today we saw a video on social media that inspired us to make a post about. We saw someone talking about the banning of straws and how everyone thinks they save the environment by skipping the straw.  Well, yes, kind of. If you're skipping the straw you're already doing a great thing! πŸ‘  But please don't let it be the only thing you do for the environment! You've adapted a new habit and now it's time to make the next step. ✊ Refuse more single use!  We see big companies being praised for targeting one thing at a time. And don't get us wrong, it's awesome that Lidl eliminates all non recyclable plastic from fresh produce, that McDonald's stops using plastic straws, that 7-11 in Thailand stops using plastic bags. But honestly, this can't be all! We all need to push these large companies to do MORE!  It's on us to push them into stricter plastic regulations! Your dollars count! ✊ Refuse to buy at 7-11 even if they don't give you plastic bags. Literally, every single item at that store is already wrapped in plastic, sometimes in more than one later. (If you go next time, make the test, send us a picture if you find one item without plastic) ✊ Refuse to go to fast food chains that skip the straw but still use plastic cups and plastic lids. ✊ Refuse single use cutlery & single use plates. ✊ stop consuming fish as commercial fishing is responsible for 46% of all ocean plastics and for empty ocean patches aka ocean dead zones! ❓ Why did we choose this picture❓  Wat Rong Khun or The White Temple in Chiang Rai is a beautiful, must visit place when in Thailand.  The artist Chalermchai Kositpipat also has a beautiful art gallery on site with beautiful Buddhism themed works but also social critical works like this painting that shows how our plastic consumption is part of the global warming.  Swipe to see more pictures of the temple! 😎 πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature  #vegan#plasticfree
It's almost Christmas Eve! Time to get all your supplies for the holidays!  But watch out for what you buy! Beverages are very important and who wants to only drink water over the festive days? πŸ˜‚  For sodas especially always keep in mind to by bigger bottles rather than small single serving beverages! You save a lot of waste right there.  If you have the options better choose glass than plastic.  Even cans are a better option as the aluminum can be more easily recycled.  Make sure you recycle the bottles appropriately! Give them little rinse to get rid of any sugar or other residue as that can cause a badge of recyclables not getting recycled.  Or give your bottles a second life by making planters, pencil cases, little presents etc out of them.  Upcycling is always a great idea to avoid plastic going to landfill!  Did you know that only 9% of all plastic ever produced actually got recycled? Everything else still exists in their original form or broken down into tiny pieces floating around in the ocean or landing on beaches where it blends in with the sand.  Avoid plastic waste as much as possible! Why not go fancy and make a wine party with some good wines? Obviously not the cheap wine in boxes or plastic bags πŸ™Š πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸŽ #ecoadventcalendar  #ecowarriors #ecofriendly #eco #vegan #christmas #recycle #upcycle #zerowaste #zerowastehome #plastic #plasticwaste #landfill #cocacola #pepsi #wine #weihnachten #adventcalendar #adventskalender #christmascalendar #family #love #travelblog #vegancouple #conservation #breakfreefromplastic #cleanup #microplastics
Buddhist temples are true sources of wisdom! πŸ™  Unfortunately, we see the truth about this phrase every single day while we fight for animal welfare, animal rights and conservation! πŸ‘Ώ  Many people see animals as nothing but cash cows and cover the hurtful truth before our eyes.  Zoos that call themselves research facility while the animals suffer in their tiny cages. Sea life that has "fun"shows for the whole family that are nothing but prisons for dolphins, whales and seals.  Even sanctuaries that imply by the name that they are doing great things for the animals become nightmares for elephants, tigers, lions etc. behind the scenes.  As conservationists we have to show that a living animal makes more money than a poached animal but still have to make sure that the animal doesn't get exploited and suffers while doing so.  These are obstacles we have to overcome because money is everything that counts for so many people. πŸ˜₯  We can only ask you to make wiser choices! Do your homework and don't fall for tourist attractions that include animals even if it's just "once in a lifetime". It is NOT just once in a lifetime for the animal, it's their every day suffering you're spending your money on.  Projects run on donations rather than ticket or entrance fees are generally honest projects where the animals come first.  If you want to make sure that the attraction is ethical we recommend you join a vegan traveling Facebook group and ask there. These groups are full of experienced compassionate travelers who can recommend or not recommend places.  Don't let money talk, let the truth and your heart talk! πŸ™ πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature  #money #donations #animalwelfare #animalrights #animals #animalattraction #elephantriding #elephanttrekking #thailand #travelblog #vegan #veganfortheanimals #vegancouple #conservation #love #facebook #breakfreefromplastic #plastic #truth #travelling #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #veganlife #buddhism #compassion
Did you know that even your food scraps can be bad if not disposed of properly? 😨  Food scraps that end up on landfill cause a lot, A LOT of greenhouse gasses as they can not break down properly due to lack of oxygen. πŸƒ  What can you do? First of all, reduce your food scraps in general. Don't buy more than you can consume, buy only what you like, and keep food beyond the expiry date (do the smell and taste test first!)! πŸ˜Ž  Of course, there will always be scraps especially the more you make from fresh fruit and vegetable (as we urge you to anyway). Surprisingly, many of our 'scraps' are totally edible. Potato 🍠 and apple 🍏 skin is the most nutritious part and should always be consumed (buy organic! Wash thoroughly!) Carrots only need to be washed, not necessarily peeled. Even banana skin is edible and makes an awesome, nutritious add on in smoothies! Try it! Chop the banana with skin and freeze it, then blend it for some creamy banana ice cream (aka Nice Cream) you will not taste a difference. Buy organic bananas to reduce the risk of harmful pesticides. 🍌🍌 Many of our scraps can be used for different meals, seeds can be roasted, skins can be cooked as broth, etc.  But what to do with actual scraps? You can try home composting!  If you have a garden or a small apartment, it doesn't matter. There's a solution for your needs. Just search the internet and find a system that works in the space you've got available. πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸŽ #ecoadventcalendar  #ecofriendly #christmas#weihnachten #adventcalendar #adventskalender #christmascalendar #food #christmasfood #foodscraps #compost  #homecomposting #vermicompost #green #greensolutions #zerowaste #nofoodwaste #breakfreefromplastic #saynotoplastic #cleanup
If you've been to Thailand before you know about the situation of stray dogs and cats here.  There are so many animals living on the street, it's crazy. But as locals treat them nicely, they mostly look happy and healthy.  But not all of them and that's why we're so happy to hear that there are shelters taking care of these poor furballs like this one on Koh Phangan, the spiritual crystal island of Thailand. (thanks @sprungwagen for pointing it out to us πŸ˜‡) @phangananimalcareforstrays is a shelter run entirely on donations and by volunteers with big hearts for animals. πŸ’ž We happened to be there for a big day for all the dogs as they all got a nice bath and we were welcome to help. πŸ’˜πŸ• We loved seeing the bond between all the volunteers and the dogs and to see how the dogs thrive from some love, grooming and health care. You are doing such a great job! @happilyhealthyxisau  This is another awesome example how you can make a positive change while being on your holiday or travels. You can donate time to shelters like this, they can really need every hand!  And if you haven't got too much time to spare you can still visit them during the day and bring some food or money for the surgeries. πŸˆπŸ• 🎁 Hot tip: if you're still looking for a Christmas present visit their Facebook or Patreon page PACS Phangan and gift someone the joy of helping an animal by donating food, toys or surgeries to this amazing place! 🎁  With your donation you can help dogs like Bacon, Bernce, Baker, Zoey and so many more!

Animal agriculture is the world's biggest contributor to climate change. If you want to have the biggest positive impact on the environment you as a single person can have, choose vegan this Christmas! πŸƒ  It is true! Animal agriculture is the reason for massive deforestation, for crazy amounts of CO2 released into the atmosphere and obviously to a lot of pain and suffering for the animals! πŸ£πŸ‘πŸ‡πŸ„πŸ– While we could easily feed the entire human population on a plant based diet, we decide to let 1 billion people (a sixth of the world's population) suffer from hunger of which 36 million die of hunger...each year. 😫  Protein deficiency is the bigest misconception about veganism. The truth is that for 100g of plant based protein that we can produce, animal agriculture only manages to get about 20g of protein out of it.  Why is that? Animals need space and need food. So instead of eating plant based ourselves we feed animals that then have to convert the plants into muscles & fat (=meat). Our body just as any animal's body is capable of extracting protein from plants. πŸ’ͺ  Try it with a vegan roast, more vegetables, less dairy and less eggs this year. It also helps your cholesterol as a plant based diet doesn't contain ANY cholesterol. πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸŽ #ecoadventcalendar  #vegan #vegancouple #veganchristmas #veganroast #veggies #ecofriendly #animalwelfare #animalrights #animalagriculture #worldhunger #love #traveler #vegantravels  #veganeats #whatveganseat #christmas#weihnachten #adventcalendar #adventskalender #liebe #aroundtheworld #sustainable #food
Never forget to play your part! πŸ’ͺ  Just a #5minutesbeachcleanup can make such a big difference! Look at how much Nadine managed to collect just within 5 minutes. 3 plastic bags full of trash that doesn't end up in the ocean to harm wildlife! πŸ’šπŸ’ Have you ever thought about how harmful plastic actually is?  Imagine this: a bird ingests so much plastic that he starves to death.  But as the dead bird breaks down and only it's skeleton is left behind, the plastic does not degrade! It's still there and could potentially be eaten by by the next bird to come. πŸ¦πŸ’€πŸ£ So every plastic bottle, bag or straw you take out of the ocean means saving more than one animal! This is why every little bit helps!! Keep it up guys! Show us your trash collection! Tag us and we'll bring you in our stories! πŸ’š πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature  #beaches #beachcleanup #cleanup#zerowastetravel #zerowaste #zerowastefamily #love #bethechange #inspiration#saveouroceans #goplasticfree #nomoreplastic #nomadlife #responsible #breakfreefromplastic #beachvibe #plastic #plastickills #wildlife #nature #vegan #vegancouple #tagus #getfeatured #followyourdreams #wanderlust #thailand
Not long and it's time to travel to your loved ones or your loved ones to travel to you!  We all know traveling far distances can cause a lot of CO2 emission!  Of course, we all want to visit our family and see them, that's why not going is not an option and we would never ask you not to go! Spend time with your loved ones, relaxed quality time.  Try to avoid traveling by plane! Planes are terrible for our eco system and the emission per person per flight is incredible.  Better options are your car or even better: the train! Most run on electricity now, not on Diesel anymore and are a truly eco friendly transportation.  If you have to travel by car because there is no train available, offer others a ride. Shared transportation can easily cut the emission down to a half or even a quarter.  The more people travel in one car the less emission. And another positive side effect? The roads are emptier, the less cars travel which makes the traffic more fluent and that again saves fuel! πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature πŸ’šπŸŽ„πŸŽ #ecoadventcalendar  #ecofriendly #eco #travel #travelblog #christmas #flyinghomeforchristmas #snow #traffic #zerowastetravel #zerowaste #vegan #vegancouple #bethechange #wisechoices #fortheoceans #fortheanimals #whitechristmas #imdreaming #together
The last lesson the wise Wayne Phillips taught us was how to turn trash into something useful, into new life.  We collected all the energy drink bottles that we found abundantly.  We found out that there are barely any beer bottles out there as you can bring them back and get money for them. (Which is a successful deposit system for plastic, glass and cans in Germany by the way! πŸ˜‰) And we turn them into so called Frags!  Put the sea glass into a concrete style block and 'plant' them in the ocean where they will become a home for corals and turn into a healthy reef.  It's genius, and it shows that we can make the best out of the worst situation with just a little imagination! πŸƒ πŸ’šπŸŒ΄πŸ’ #navigatingnature  #frags #ecofriendly #reef #healthy #ocean #oceanlover #vegan #vegancouple #veganlove #love #zerowaste #zerowastetravel #thailand #pattaya #trash #plasticocean #recycle #upcycle #bethechange #inspiration
