About our takeaway cups…

IMG_E3763

 

Less than 1% of coffee takeaway cups are recycled. 7 million disposable coffee cups are used every day in UK. Some coffee-shops are offering incentives to their customers, giving them from 25p to 50p discount, every time they bring their own coffee cup.

Small gestures that means so much to the environment and to the future of the Planet Earth (oceans, animals, air, water, forests etc…etc…)

2.5 billion coffee cups are used and thrown away each year in the UK. We don’t have to wait until laws are created to reverse this situation. Maybe when they become reality it will be too late.

We can start doing better NOW..

Bring your own coffee cup/tea cup.

Menos de 1% dos copos descartáveis são recicláveis. 7 Milhões de copos descartáveis de café são usados diariamente no Reino Unido. Alguns cafés estão oferecendo incentivos aos clientes quando eles trazem os próprios copos de café (descontos de 25 a 50 centavos por café).

Pequenos gestos que significa muito para o meio-ambiente e para o futuro do Planeta Terra (oceanos, animais, ar, água, florestas, etc…etc…).

2.5 milhões de copos descartáveis de café são usados e descartados por ano no Reino Unido.

Nós não precisamos de esperar que leis sejam criadas para reverter esta situação. Talvez quando isso se tornar realidade, seja tarde demais.

Podemos fazer nossa parte a partir de agora.

Na próxima vez que você for comprar seu café, leve o seu próprio copo.

Solace

SOLACE

Solace is the art of asking the beautiful question, of ourselves, of our world or of one another, often in fiercely difficult and un-beautiful moments. Solace is what we must look for when the mind cannot bear the pain, the loss or the suffering that eventually touches every life and every endeavor; when longing does not come to fruition in a form we can recognize, when people we know and love disappear, when hope must take a different form than the one we have shaped for it.

Solace is the spacious, imaginative home we make where disappointment goes to be welcomed and rehabilitated. When life does not in any way add up, we must turn to the part of us that has never wanted a life of simple calculation.

Solace is found in allowing the body’s innate foundational wisdom to come to the fore, a part of us that already knows it is mortal and must take its leave like everything else, and leads us, when the mind cannot bear what it is seeing or hearing, to the birdsong in the tree above our heads, even as we are being told of a death, each note an essence of morning and of mourning; of the current of a life moving on, but somehow, also, and most beautifully, carrying, bearing, and even celebrating the life we have just lost. – A life we could not see or appreciate until it was taken from us –

To be consoled is to be invited onto the terrible ground of beauty upon which our inevitable disappearance stands, to a voice that does not soothe falsely, but touches the epicenter of our pain or articulates the essence of our loss, and then emancipates us into the privilege of both life and death as an equal birthright.

Solace is not an evasion, nor a cure for our suffering, nor a made up state of mind. Solace is a direct seeing and participation; a celebration of the beautiful coming and going, appearance and disappearance of which we have always been a part. Solace is not meant to be an answer, but an invitation, through the door of pain and difficulty, to the depth of suffering and simultaneous beauty in the world that the strategic mind by itself cannot grasp nor make sense of.

To look for solace is to learn to ask fiercer and more exquisitely pointed questions, questions that reshape our identities and our bodies and our relation to others. Standing in loss but not overwhelmed by it, we become useful and generous and compassionate and even more amusing companions for others. But solace also asks us very direct and forceful questions. Firstly, how will you bear the inevitable loss that will accompany you? And how will you endure it through the years? And above all, how will you shape a life equal to and as beautiful and as astonishing as a world that can birth you, bring you into the light and then just as you were beginning to understand it, take you away?

(Its the time of year, just before the holidays, when we feel keenly the absence of loved ones we have lost. Their absence is an invitation to a more profound form of conversation, a deeper understanding of consolation. This is solace, not as a made up story we tell ourselves for false comfort, but as a deeper, broader, fiercer sense of presence, a way of paying attention, of being equal to and able for the losses involved in even the most average life, a way of asking ‘The beautiful Question.’ )
