Discarded Trash Transformed To Black Queer Power
Leilah Babirye is nailing and burning her way to fierce queer freedom.
A black lesbian forced to flee her home of Uganda, Babirye applies African traditions to recovered trash revealing gender-fluid beauty from the debris.
Making art from trash isn’t just a way of recycling or sustainability. Trash is a literal and figurative instrument of her art. To Babirye, society makes LGBTQIA people feel like trash. “Ebisiyga,” a pejorative term for an LGBTQ person in Luganda, a native Ugandan language, means sugarcane husk. “It’s rubbish,” Babirye told Cultured magazine. “The part of the sugarcane you throw out.”
25 Best Tips On Sustainable Living
Migratory fish are species that require different environments for significant phases of their life cycle, such as reproduction, production of babies, growth and sexual maturation, and mating. Fish Migration is triggered by natural or human-made factors that make fishes swim short or long distances daily, yearly, or longer, either to complete life cycle or to avert danger and pollution. Fish migration is necessary for the success and prosperity of aquatic life.

Carbon Neutral Packaging
Carbon Packaging refers to packaging systems and materials that incur carbon footprints. Most packaging methods use materials that generate a high carbon footprint, hence those who consider sustainability and the environment have come up with new terms as carbon neutrality, carbon positive packaging, carbon-negative packaging, and eco-friendly packaging. The pollution of our oceans with single-use plastics is one of the most concerning environmental issues facing our planet today. It is undeniable that decades of plastic use have added up to frightful consequences for our planet. At Fierce Hazel, we use no plastics in the packaging of our products.

Artist Profile: Erick Wolfmeyer
Erick Wolfmeyer would be the first to tell you he can barely stitch a button on a shirt, but that hasn’t stopped him from making quilting into a fierce fine art. For the past twenty years, he has been creating abstract works of fabric art. His goal is simple—envisioning quilts to inspire and endure for generations. He hopes his work offers his audience a “big experience, to lead them to something deep within, to help connect or reconnect them to something greater than themselves.”
The two fundamentals to all of Erick’s quilts—a commitment to preserve the tradition of hand quilting and a passion for color composition. Erick loves color, playing around with it, bending and shaping its tones and values. Quilts are a canvas that, for him, offer infinite possibilities.

Carbon Offset Can Mitigate Climate Change
Imagine a world where every individual, firm, company, corporate body, and governmental agency can reduce their carbon footprint no matter the business type! Carbon offsets usually directly support community-driven projects that protect and restore critical forests around the world. These forests, in turn, conserve biodiversity, sustain livelihoods for millions of people, help communities around the world build resilience to climate change, absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and help mitigate climate change globally.
Just invest more in carbon offset projects. They are practical and effective ways to address climate change and encourage the growth of renewable energy. By supporting carbon offset, you contribute to a more sustainable future by counterbalancing your personal carbon emissions, aka: "carbon footprint."
