Misaotra! Because of your support last Earth Month, the entire village of #Tsarafangitra , Madagascar has access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene💦. Vero, Raoly, Veronique, Miora and thousands of others no longer have to walk 3 km a day to fetch water from a dirty pond. Now, they'll spend more time on what matters: family, opportunity and health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From everyone at Collega + Aveda and @wateraidcanada, #MISAOTRA (it means thank you!)
A HUGE thanks to @Cupanion for their recent contribution of $10,000, which has brought us closer to reaching our goal of clean water for everyone, everywhere by 2030💦! Every time a cup, mug, or bottle was sold, they gave the equivalent of the first fill of clean water to someone in need! ..
Now they're taking their contribution even further! All Cupanion products now ship with a #FillItForward ™ tag, that can connect any reusable cup, mug or bottle to the Fill it Forward app. Each time a user reuses in the app, the equivalent of a cup of clean water will be given to a person in need. Each cup given helps fund meaningful water projects around the world 🌎. Plus, users can track their environmental impact and set daily hydration goals within the app. ..
Will you Fill It Forward?
On Thanksgiving, or "Day of Mourning" at Standing Rock, the camp swelled with thousands of people from all across the country looking to be apart of the spectacle of the holiday at Oceti Sakowin. As thousands arrived to feast at a dinner put on by Jane Fonda miles away from the camp, the Water Protectors had a better idea than be apart of the sideshow. Honoring the true meaning of Day of Mourning, a day Native America regrets, as it symbolizes the destruction of indigenous culture, Water Protectors instead ascended to Turtle Island, a hill surrounded by water on the outskirts of camp. They came to pray for ancestors buried on top of the hill, a place law enforcement also used as a lookout point to keep surveillance on the camp. As law enforcement stood atop the hill, a thanksgiving standoff took place at the base between officers and Water Protectors who had constructed a makeshift floating bridge to cross the water. This photo of 2 resilient Diné women was taken near the bank of the river that day. The lady on the right, refusing to speak English, would only speak her native tongue that day. This photo remains one of my favorite portraits I have ever taken. There is so much meaning and history behind this split second in time.
Luscious Cabbage! Look at this Cabbage. We grew it. Now we’re trying to create customer base to sell these veggies to. We want a healthy customer base that won’t have to leave town because they’re a serial rapist or lose their restaurant because they’re part of an entire dining group rape conspiracy. So yes, this is somewhat a form of marketing and a form of calling for accountability to these people with status in our food scene using their positions to be predators. Fuck your status, you don’t deserve it. This is a food scene, the place people should feel safe. Eating. It’s where cultures can extend their gifts to each other, where artists can communicate through their culinary skills. Food can be the element that brings food/social justice to the masses. It should not be a place safe for rapists, COLINizers and predators. #nomore#cleanfood#stoprapeculture#calloutcabbage#okc
Water is a transparent and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms. Its chemical formula is H2O, meaning that each of its molecules contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms that are connected by covalent bonds. Strictly speaking, water refers to the liquid state of a substance that prevails at standard ambient temperature and pressure; but it often refers also to its solid state (ice). It also occurs in nature as snow, glaciers, ice packs and icebergs, clouds, fog, dew, aquifers, and atmospheric humidity
Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface. It is vital for all known forms of life. On Earth, 96.5% of the planet's crust water is found in seas and oceans, 1.7% in groundwater, 1.7% in glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, a small fraction in other large water bodies, 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of ice and liquid water suspended in air), and precipitation. Only 2.5% of this water is freshwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere, and an even smaller amount of the Earth's freshwater (0.003%) is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products. A greater quantity of water is found in the earth's interior.
Water on Earth moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation and transpiration (evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea. Evaporation and transpiration contribute to the precipitation over land. Large amounts of water are also chemically combined or adsorbed in hydrated minerals . .
