• Excited to be back at EAT

    Five years ago about this time of year, the very first EAT Forum was held in Stockholm by a relatively fresh and ambitious organization. The idea was to gather key persons to discuss a sustainable food production and health over a breakfast meeting. It didn’t take long until EAT grew large and would be recognized as a pillar of the discussion and research about sustainable food. Now, EAT gathers key stakeholders within business, politics and civil society in Stockholm year after year. This is where big plans grow, and we are so lucky to be able to spend time within EATs four walls over the next month. What is EAT?…

  • Life Cykel – the Aussie startup saving the world with mushrooms

    Ryan and Julian from Life Cykel are two Australian guys passionate about the possibility of using mushrooms to save the world. They discovered the enormous potential of providing a healing, plant-based and sustainable protein through mushrooms, and have built such a cool closed-loop business, where they collect coffee grounds from cafés and restaurants, grow mushrooms on them, and then return the edible end product. We were curious to hear more about the uses of mushrooms for healing, how mushrooms are important for the future of our planet, and how these guys came up with the fantastic idea!

The campaign was launched in order to draw attention and raise funds to reverse the current trends. The world’s animal population has decreased by 58% the past 40 years. Monitored species are increasingly affected by pressures from unsustainable agriculture, fisheries,…

  • Eco-fashion advice from a green heart

    About a year ago I wasn’t a conscious consumer. I visited fast fashion stores weekly and didn’t pay much attention to what I heard about the industry being unethical and bad for the environment. I really don’t know what happened, but one day I started to research and what I found was so shocking, that I changed my behavior almost overnight. I was wondering why people didn’t talk more about this, and how I could become a more eco-friendly and ethical consumer. I felt like doing something, and my blog et grønt hjerte (a green heart) was born, to collect and share the information that I found, and hoped that other people would…
