Fast, degradable, and climate-neutral – algae as a new bioplastic?

No fossil raw materials are required for the production of bioplastics. Currently, bioplastics are mainly produced using corn starch. However, ethical questions are being discussed. For example, are raw materials used for food suitable for packaging material? Are the corresponding limited production areas suitable for packaging material? Specialised microalgae contain chlorophyll and are capable of photosynthesis. Of course, they are intended to circumvent such questions. Cyanobacteria (blue or microalgae) can use sunlight energy to capture CO2. They convert it into sugar. Cultivating such algae does not need any agricultural land.

Propolis – The Sun Medicine

The natural product propolis is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory and promotes wound healing. Honey bees make propolis to seal and clean their hive. They use resin from trees and shrubs, along with wax and saliva. The "building material" also contains vitamins, minerals, and protein building blocks. The composition changes based on where the hive is and what plants are around. The season also plays an important role. The propolis colours vary, making it difficult to prove its effectiveness. The antimicrobial effect is beneficial for bee colonies. Inside a beehive, lots of nutrients lead to higher humidity and temperature. This lets viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites grow fast. The corresponding growth-inhibiting effect on these organisms has confirmed for propolis.

RELAXATION AND SUNLIGHT

Sufficient rest is just as important for physical health. During sleep, hormones that regulate metabolism and immune function are released. According to the National Institutes of Health, chronic sleep deprivation causes health problems. Moreover, it promotes diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Plentiful sunlight and rest are essential for health and well-being. Mood and vitamin D levels are positively influenced. Adequate rest and sleep improve cognitive functions, physical health, and general well-being.

We are putting the focus on the “essential and realisable”. Inspire ourselves and the environment.

Promoting a vegan lifestyle improves the quality of life in the long term. More people can be fed. Less farmland, as smaller yields must be spent on farm animals. Water quality improves. Resources generally become more abundant. Diseases of affluence will shrink. Health costs are lower, especially for people of retirement age. Enjoyment does not mean rewarding active leisure activities. Is consuming sweets and food containing bad fat after sports in nature a good idea? Who wants to feel worse after a holiday than before?

Sustainable footprint with backward, forward, foresight and eco-friendly living!

Consequently, the best concepts are only helpful if we implement them. No one benefits sustainably from absurd wage structures. Nor in every case from large corporations or VAT-exempt industries. And actors from the state sector who want to avoid taking responsibility. Profit is not harmful per se. Nevertheless, permanent self-control and daily decisions require courage and common sense. Less is often more. Less wealth, for example, and energy scarcity could have positive effects. For instance, fewer overheated homes have positive impacts on health. It leads to an improved ability to think with increased productivity. More agility and knowledge enhance the decision-making competence.

Reduced sleep quality during heat waves

According to sleep experts, "tropical nights" are harmful. Deep sleep is a pipe dream if the temperature does not drop below 20 degrees at night. Studies have shown that it is often more difficult for people to fall asleep. Also, the waking phases are longer at night. The so-called "REM sleep" is somewhat reduced. People often dream more intensively, and their eye movements are faster. In addition, the heart beats faster.

Frowner’s „Essences”

Not only currency differences or price increases can strain all our budgets. Often more can be achieved with selected tools. Operating in fewer areas can be worthwhile. In other words, having a perfect command of the relevant matters can be an advantage. One thus focuses on quality and does without unnecessary additions to external measures. One can pass on one's own experience for the benefit of others, in the best case, even sell it. With strategic organisation, one often recycles altruistically and gifts in many ways.

Reduce, reflect, plan, and determine essences.

Combine exercise and sport with learning. Especially with practice or training, there are better phases to absorb information. They are processed in a solution-oriented way. Interval training is good for losing weight. It brings body and mind into different spheres. It is a chance for conscious reflection. To revisit thoughts written down and, if necessary, to optimise them. Generative AI notes can be audited. And, if necessary, even shared with the community. As is well known, the best ideas come from running.

Lavender Indoors

After travelling in the Mediterranean, one usually remembers the warm, sunny, dry climate. You also think of beautiful flowering lavender fields. Only some have a garden. But could lavender also thrive indoors in colder latitudes? Not all lavender plants are suitable for pots in the living room. Yet, some varieties are ideal for indoor use. These are so-called "dwarf lavender plants" such as "Goodwin Creek Grey" and "Munstead". A good choice is also "Little Lottie ", with fine pink flower tips. The French variety "Lavandula dentata" is also suitable as a pot plant.

Brand, Label and Guarantee

Progressive supermarkets focus on the welfare of consumers and not on selling as many products as possible. But consumers can also make a big difference by using advances in digitalisation. Self-monitoring via apps, for example. Nevertheless, health apps with targeted information on smart shopping still need to be expanded or more present. This is not a matter of coincidence; much more of entrenched structures. We are still a long way from making life-affirming investments - in other words, investing the Swiss franc in a more economically and socially beneficial manner.
