    Title: Weekend trip

    Location: Romania

    Other Information: My weekend trip to the mountains. The hike was to a peak called “the lazy one”. We managed to track some bear cub tracks and some nice plastics and litter. Lucky that there were some bags abandoned on the road and I was able to collect some plastics. One good news is that the nature is playing hard and it recovers quickly 🙂

    Location: Romania

    Other Information: A short update on our reforestation project in Romania. We are getting close to 1600 planted trees in 7 sessions. Hopefully the other 1900 trees will be planted until mid May. The deers visited the site and enjoyed some oak bark and left some marks there also 🙂 Mimi, our dog collected some ticks from the grass so watch out when you go into nature as those tinny little creatures are now active again.

    Title: Beach Micro-Plastics Cleanup

    Location: Seaford, Victoria, Australia

    Other Information: It’s hard to solve a problem that we can’t see…
    Once you visit the beach with your micro-plastic hunting eyes on, you will never see a beach in the same way again. Much like picking up rubbish on the side of the road, you often don’t realise just how much there is until you start collecting it all. 
    Nurdles were one of the major culprits however there was also a lot of small pieces of plastics that seem to have broken of larger pieces while churning in the ocean before finally washing ashore.
    What are nurdles? 
    “Nurdles are tiny plastic pellets, and they are causing devastating damage to our environment and marine life. You can find them on your favorite beach, blending in with sand and shells. 

    The first reported appearance of nurdles on beaches dates back to 1970. However, plastic production began in 1940, so it’s likely that nurdles have been entering the ocean since then.
    A nurdle is a small plastic pellet used to create virtually anything plastic. From plastic bottles to automobile parts, they’re widely used in plastic production. 

    They are the raw material for everything that’s made of plastic. But even if they’re tiny, their damage is giant and immeasurable. Because of their size, it’s hard to keep them contained, and they spill into rivers, waterways, and the ocean. 

    Nurdles come in all sorts of colors, and their size and shape make it very easy for marine life to mistake them for food. It’s been recorded that more than 220 species of marine animals ingest microplastics and plastic debris. 

    Nurdles are made of polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, or other plastic types. Also, in some cases, they contain different additives to create pellets of different densities.” – Ocean Blue Project
    Here is some of the plastics/micro-plastics collected from Seaford beach, Victoria, Australia

    Title: Registered with the Klima app to compensate for my CO2 emissions

    Location: Everywhere

    Other Information: It’s a really easy to use app which I recommend that people install. Compensating for my (admittedly very low) emissions will cost me about 60 EUR per year which is very affordable. Installing the app and checking what it would cost you is free, and the money goes to reforestation and solar power projects which are carefully vetted.

Made $20 for lessening their trash-footprint. 10 full trash bags of 40 pounds of cans. The line was too busy for me to take pictures of the bags while unloading, sorry I could not.

    Title: @CleanPlanet trash pickup

    Location: Southeast Michigan

    Other Information: Through www .joinseeds .com cryptocurrency  I learned about CleanPlanet on discord. An initiative to clean up our planet.  I entered some new challenges  of learning the blockchain technology, and started my adventure  in cleaning up my local area  of the garbage people so carelessly  leave behind.  It has given me an opportunity to start earning some money within my own schedule and abilities.The following link is to my new dtube channel  where I have done at least 2 trash pickup sessions in my neighborhood. And working on a 3rd! I know no one else is going to do it, so I might as well take the opportunity. At least I can do something decent with my time and energy and get paid.  Please visit the address below for the videos. https://d.tube/#!/c/kchheap111

    Title: I built my own compost bin

    Location: Southeast Michigan

    Other Information: I have been involved in 4-H pretty much all my life in one form or another.    As a child and teen,  I raised and helped care for many animals  both wild and domesticated. Too many to count but I raised and fostered dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks, owls and other birds.  It is just part of who I have become.   I have won many ribbons for showing animals, making projects, growing plants, etc.    One year I wanted to start growing pumpkins  to sell. I set up a small garden. It wasn’t set in in a very good place, due to lack of sunlight.   So I gave up for awhile, and later set up my garden in another spot.  It was 8x12ft roughly.   And then after a few years  i expanded to another type of garden. I was watching many homestead  videos at this time, learning about permaculture   and different elements of this method.  In 2018 I decided  to build a large compost bin so i could collect more biomass than what I was collecting in garbage bins and allow it to “cook”  to start breaking down. I found plans online, I scaled them up to a 4x4x4ft bin  and  bought the lumber. built a hinged lid. This was first major build I built mostly by myself.   I was very proud of it.  I really don’t want to give it up so soon after i built it.  I put a lit of thought, blood, sweat, tears, and heart into this project as i do almost every project i involve myself in.

    Title: Hugelkultur garden

    Location: Southeast Michigan

    Other Information: I have been involved  with growing or caring for something  whether plant or animal, in 4-H.  In about late 1990s to early 2000  I started my own garden in my backyard  to grow pumpkins but it failed due to poor placement and there wasn’t as much info on the net yet on the subject.    So I tried again a few years later after graduating massage therapy school.  I wanted to start changing my diet a little bit. Introduce some other veggies into my pallet. I figured i would be more likely to eat more veggies if i grew them. Eventually  i was learning  what permaculture  was  and started to inch my way into that, using some methods. Hugelkultur  i thought was an awesome idea,  so I started making my beds into modified  versions  of hugelkultur.  Also applying lasagna layers .  And making more raised beds.    I want to keep the hard work and love i put into these gardens and expanding to add fruit trees making my backyard  a sanctuary for me and my future wife.  My girlfriend  whom I met online was attracted  to my profile because i had pictures  of my garden and my sunflowers,  instead of pictures of my car.
