People for Earth

South Africa was just starting to dip its toes into the waters of green living when along came the recession and made us all think about budgets rather than organics. You may have noticed that the organic food section is not the cheapest.
However, that doesn’t mean the green world movement is slowing down - which it certainly won’t if it’s up to people like Sabina Pojded who runs an NGO in Europe called People for Earth
She’s also got a blog, which I’m going to add to my list of favourites (you’ll find that list at the right hand side of this site).
I totally love it when I discover how and what other people are doing to make a difference. Read what she has to say and be inspired.
What is so amazing about Sabina is that she doesn’t live in New York, Los Angeles or London, but in Gorenjska, Slovenia ... now where the heck is that?
One of the features of her site is a “daily action” plan to help save the planet – and one of them ties into one of my pet peeves, bottled water. It has its place, to be sure, but read what she has to say about it in this post from January 6 and you'll think twice before reaching for that Bonaqua.

Dear Gillian,

Thank you so much for you kind words. I really appreciate it, since I tend to forget how far have we come in one year - especially since we are not native English speakers.

Slovenia is a small country in Europe, with only 2 million population, and Gorenjska in a small region in of high peaks, sharp mountain ridges, deep Alpine valleys and clear waters. :)
