Ethical banking, not so easy


Its about 8 years ago I think, that I read an article somewhere about banks investing our savings in companies making fragmentation and anti-personnel mines. It shocked me deeply. What's more, it shocked me that I didn't know about it, that they hide it in big words and promising lots of intrest and so on. I was even more shocked when I tried to talk with my colleagues about it. They knew me... Read full blog post

Eco friendly soap


In Belgium I used Ecover (www.ecover.be) for years. Its a Belgian designed but West-worldwide available product.

My own library

LIBRARY LOVE (level 3)

This is my first encounter with this site. I love the idea: change the world, begin with thyself. I guess we can change the quests a bit to our real life. I live in Uganda, trying my best to life a sustainable life. We run a restaurant where a lot of tourists come. As I saw in another restaurant, I borrowed the idea of setting up a small library. Many people like reading during their holidays... Read full blog post
