Éric, the 'punk gardener'. When humility and counterculture serve biodiversity

10 Jan 2024  |  bferst.eu
Éric Lenoir, self-described 'punk gardener', advocates for a more observant and less interventionist approach to gardening, challenging the notion that humans are 'masters of nature'. He emphasizes the use of natural resources, such as young tree shoots and leaves, for sustainable fertilization. His methods inspire both the industry and research, including the European project BFerst, which is exploring bio-fertilizers to reduce environmental impact. Lenoir's philosophy is detailed in his book 'Le grand traité du jardin punk', and he promotes a 'punk approach' to gardening, which involves questioning mainstream practices and finding low-cost, effective solutions that respect nature's autonomy.

From 100% renewables to greenwashing: Your energy supplier might not be as green as you think

24 Jun 2022  |  www.euronews.com
Energy providers often market 'green tariffs,' which can range from 100% renewable energy to greenwashing. Greenwashing involves misleading claims about sustainability for marketing purposes. Kit Dixon of Good Energy, a fully renewable supplier, recalls a British provider that claimed 100% renewable energy after buying REGO certificates. REGOs and European Guarantees of Origin (GoOs) track renewable energy to the final consumer. Critics argue that these certificates allow providers to label non-renewable energy as green. Volker Kromrey of the Lake Constance Foundation and Gianluca Ruggieri of the Italian cooperative ènostra discuss the challenges consumers face in finding genuinely green tariffs and the importance of supporting renewable energy generators.
