New forest adds 10% rainfall

Gaviotas is a relatively famous eco project. It has been going since the early 1980's. They began planting a Caribbean pine tree in the otherwise barren llanos of eastern Colombia.

The presence of the forest has altered the local climate by generating an additional 10 percent rainfall, which also supports Gaviotas' water

bottling initiative.

Eco friendly boxes

Hey check these out:


The Life Box is cardboard box material impregnated with tree seeds.
After use, rather than being thrown away the boxes are planted.
The resulting trees and the carbon they sequester are later trackable.

Do the hard work needed to find a simple solution. As Leonardo da Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”—and it is the key to this type of design work.

I believe its the key to design in general. This principle can be applied to many aspects of problem solving.

This also can mean other advantages such as lowering costs and keeping it simple for locals to understand it, replicate it and improve it themselves.

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out.

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
