Live green. Observe the world from a special lens and realize that a daily green or at least eco-sustainable is possible. If to many this will appear trivial and almost obvious, for it is not so. Distraction is easy, therefore, to wear clothing products from who knows where, with who knows what materials and under what conditions it is easier to rely on companies that have made sustainability their mantra. Go on holiday in certain places rather than others, to eat in a certain way, maybe not to get to get to the house the toothpaste, the shampoo or face cream, but move in the direction of a brand that is more attentive to the environment and to the choice of the active ingredients, cruelty free and organic or almost… well, we assure you, they are undertaking affordable.

VEGAN, YES, BUT ONLY A LITTLE
One of the latest trends games from America in this 2017 is the so-called Flexitarian, anattitude effortlessly, which bans the taxation and the self-impositions, and invites us to be less manichean and more flexible, to themselves and to the world. A way to embrace life-styles without the barriers, but with the greatest freedom, for example starting from the dietary fads: why become a vegan, vegetarian, raw foodists tout court? You can do it for a certain period of time, for a few days a week or for a certain number of hours per day, mixing the “genres”. This would induce even the “less attentive and hard” to change their attitude and view of the world, going to different fields, such as fashion, beauty, leisure.

DRESS UP WITH MILK, AND CITRUS FRUITS
Eco-fashion: a changing world with surprises, surprises of any kind. Did you know that many young designers are involved in the planning of yarn derived from organic materials, even waste? The casein, for example: yes, that’s right, clothes made with milk! The idea came to two girlfriends at a dairy in milan, and from there was born “Made with milk”, so clothes and accessories with a textile fibre obtained from derivatives of the waste of dairy products, with a greater capacity to absorb moisture compared to synthetic fibers. But not only milk, and the oranges can become the basis for clothes and fashion accessories. A start-up sicilian, in fact, has developed a system for obtaining yarn from the waste of citrus fruit and is thus born the brand Orange Fiber. A lot of creativity, therefore, and Italian pride.

SLEEP ON THE TREES
Travel green? You can, just choose the hotel and resort built with certain criteria, and attentive to the environment and waste. According to a study by Tripadvisor, the region of Trentino Alto Adige is the Italian region best equipped in this regard, the most rich eco-hotel, or those structures that, starting from the place in which they are built, they must demonstrate they contribute to keep intact the surrounding environment, provide paths for recreation that promote the family and to give priority to one type of cuisine, the so-called kilometer zero. In addition, they should use renewable energy sources, cleansing products, natural as well as the linen. An example of holiday green that is appealing a lot, especially the young, enjoy your stay, but especially at night, on the branches of a tree! This is, of course, of the houses, most of the times, well equipped and with high standards, but the idea is to stay in contact with nature and the result is guaranteed.

FURNITURE MADE OF BACTERIA AND FUNGI
If you want to create a home environment eco-friendly, it’s easy! You can buy furniture made from garbage (that’s right) or with mushrooms , or build walls of the house, if not the whole home, with eco-bricks made using bacteria. In practice, sand is added to a specific solution, and the micro-organisms needed, feeding, envelop the crystals of sand, turning them into calcium carbonate. In short, we speak of bio-building and eco-design that the use of waste materials, produces solutions that are able, in their turn, to absorb pollutants and purify the air in your home. And furniture self-cleaning, which is not bad!
