Turtle Rescue


It's Monday! So let's start the week off with this beautiful moment captured on camera.

Along the coast off Mexico, two divers spotted a turtle tangled in a rope. While Cameron Dietrich untangled the turtle, his dive partner, Colin Sutton filmed the rescue.

If that wasn't incredible enough, once freed, the turtle turned and swam back to Dietrich, as if to say 'thank you'. Check out the heartwarming video for yourself, below.


UN Messenger of Peace

Being out of any wifi connection last week meant that I missed all the excitement surrounding the UN Climate Summit in New York City.

Just in case you did too, here is the newly appointed UN Messenger of Peace, Leonardo DiCaprio at the opening of the Climate Summit with his inspirational speech.

Guilt Free Gift Packaging



The Sweet Occassion

It seems like the countdown to Christmas has began! Well, according to some of my friends who have began the countdown anyway.

But who wouldn't be excited for Christmas? We get to join our family and friends, celebrate together over good food and drinks and unwrap all those wonderful gifts we are showered with!

However, our merry gift giving is soon followed by a sea of plastic and wrapping scattered over our living room floors, which pile up into large bags of rubbish, soon to be thrown out the door and into the garbage bins for collection. That eventual mix of rubbish is a dreaded recipe for our environment, made up of plastic packaging boxes, bubble wrap, twisty, bendy wires which hold toys in place and everything in between.

Among Giants

By the time 'Among Giants' was filmed, an environmental activist, "Farmer" had already spent three years tree sitting a grove of ancient redwood trees in Northern California.

Take a look into the life of the "Farmer" who lives among the trees, in order to save them.


Five Green Children's Books



The Green Dandelion
 
David Suzuki
, an award winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster, once said that "Unless we are willing to encourage our children to reconnect with and appreciate the natural world, we can't expect them to help protect and care for it".

As our world continues to move further and further into the digital world, the number of children who play outside continues to decrease. Creating a connection with the natural world is not only beneficial for a child's development, it's important so that as the next generation, they respect and value our environment.

Of course, establishing the connection to the natural world begins where it has always traditionally begun, and that's at the 'once upon a time'. Reading books about the environment to our dear little ones allows them to develop a curiosity about the great, big world outside. These days there are many books available which teach our children how to care about the natural world, in a fun and informative manner.
