    [Green] Beirut bike messengers deliver groceries and parcels by cycling
    Deghri is a new bike courier service that moves parcels around the city in a green way. I did the best part of my growing up in Toronto, a cold and somewhat bike-crazed city. It’s there where I met a champion bike courier from Berlin and had my first long-distance love affair when he moved back to Germany. Joern, god bless his heart, used to deliver love letters by international courier! The city of Toronto and its people encouraged me to ride my bike – in the thick of winter even.

    [Green] Sustainable consumption
    Even buying more and more green products to make us feel to be good eco-warriors is not sustainable. And to top it all many of those “green” products are not very green at all, be that in the material they contain, such as bamboo fiber products, or many others. by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The idea of sustainable growth and sustainable consumption is about the same as having sex to preserve for virginity or having a war for peace. It does not work.

This attention is a good thing, despite the growing need to ensure that developments that play the green card, truly do walk the talk.
