More and more green. That's what we need!
Join my Living Greenways Campaign to promote zero plastic footprint zones, help revitalize native landscapes, counter habitat fragmentation and suggest alternatives as we rebuild environmentally sensitive areas worldwide.
My goal is to partner with city planners, businesses and homeowners to promote habitat conservation that will help wildlife that depends on them. Indirectly, people will be rewarded with natural oasis while restoring biodiversity in a sustainable way. Such habitats will provide health benefits to humans and help mitigate environmental health issues that pose a growing threat to our society.
This campaign can be an engaging team building activity at school and work or a fun family activity at home.
We are not looking for fund raising or donations.
* This Campaign started out of my other passion. Find out more at SaveInsects.com.

Plastics (generic name as polymer) has become a growing problem. Though, single use plastic bags and packaging are in limelight, there are a multitude of plastic applications in daily use. We need to reduce plastic use before the earth turns into a gigantic trash can. Listen to a brief history of how we got here.
Encourage businesses, homeowners and city planners to build natural landscapes. Grow clusters of native plants yielding rainbow colored flowers in the yard or park. Find native plants species specific to your zip code.
Draw a site plan and keep it simple. Add a water source such as a bird bath or a small pond. Arrange big plants in the back, medium plants in the middle and small plants in the front or around walkways. Soften the look of your yard or park by leaving a strip un-mowed for a natural-looking perimeter.
Select plants that bloom from Spring to Fall. Where possible, use pollinator friendly plants. Start with a limited number of plants that are easy to grow or are ever green. Incorporate tall grass, vines and shrubs too. Cut down on mowing and stop over-watering! Cut grass has short roots that make it harder to survive pest attacks, disease and drought. Use ever green shrubs to maintain the garden appearance year round. Limit the use of pesticides and leaf blowers. If adding fertilizer, use slow-release fertilizers that make nutrients available to plants for a longer time and are kinder to the environment. This video may give some useful insight.
