Violence of legumes and music one impact

Violence of legumes for my Sunday lunch.
I boiled a lot ‘rice and lentils for my meal and for my cats.
Then I mixed them with minced meat and small vegetables cube (for cats).
For my meal , I did a mix with tomato sauce, peas, fried onions and sundried tomatoes in oil into strips. Fantastic!

I just wonder why I chose to open a can of peas (certainly not the children of this April) instead of fresh beans that I had in the fridge from the fresh market and especially in season?

Stupid me, stupid me three times. For not thinking before acting, for being left with haste because the dish would come much better, with different tastes .

Not that I’m sorry about this dish, was not bad at all ,but now I find myself with a new can be disposed. So I searched a bit on the web, and I found funny and colourful ways to recycle cans and much more, and now that out is a bit cold keep the windows open, and i can play a bit’ to creative recycle .

I had already built a music instrument and I was very proud of it, so much to take (almost) always around when you play with capoeristas.

Now, what else can I invent? Simple decorations, for example. O strange musical
instruments as they BungtBangt & Capone’s group does, which I hope to invite for the second edition of MusiCamp.
Am I digressing? Yes, and for now I say bye to you and I start my work.
What is the object, the more beautiful made, with recycled materials in your home?

Ecologic hairstyle!

At the end I cut my hair without any help of the hairdresser.
I took a pair of scissors, and ZAC!
Despite of that, my face remains the same, just shorter than six inches.
However, this does not prevent me to take inspiration, maybe tomorrow or tonight, suddenly cut them again, and then in the worst of the case a saint hairdresser will adjust my work, in silence, without any critics.

And why I cut my hair?

It’s not easy, but just ask me if I’m happy

extra: in giro per Milano, Piazza del Duomo - kika testa(g)rossa

In spite of my No Shopping life (no clothes, make up or technology), every day my table is full of new boxes, fliers and plastic bags.

The reason is that I often receive little presents (like a new razor) or something like 15 (yes, 15) menstrual cups, samples to swap with my friends, or else because sometimes my lapse of concentration makes me make mistakes and take brochures or free press newspapers. :-S

Things for women

Good evening!
My name is Claudia, I’m writing because of my “Low impact project” that started a few days ago.
It’ll be a one year experiment: I’ll try to reduce my carbon footprint (eating vegan, biking and, I hope, using solar energy) and part of the project will be the use of a Menstrual Cup and Cloth Pads [or degradable tampons].
Many friends of mine already ordered Menstrual Cups in your website, and I’d like to talk about your website into my blog of this experience (sorry it’ll be soon translated in english).
What about a little exchange?

This is the way my relationship with Teresa started. She works for Feminine Wear, who sells cloth pads, sea sponge tampons and menstrual cups.

Bicarbonate, are you bad or good?

Since I met Giovane Arrogante I changed many behaviours, and especially I gave up buying roll-on and sticks, rather bicarbonate.
Bicarbonate is very useful to clean the house and the body, and it works also as fungicide and sterilizer, or else it’s good to bake a cake or soften your towels.
Anyway, we all use it frequently in the house, or we should, if we wanted to live One Impact Lives.  ;-)
But nobody told me before, the bicarbonate industry seems to be the cause of the whiteness of a beach in Rosignano, Italy.
Of course I would like to see that thing with my own eyes and investigate, but the doubt makes me think that I should simply give up using that product.
It can be easily replaced by kaoli and essential oil, and so on.
