Our Planet

All around the Earth life is present, whether on Earth, in the air or in the depths under the sea. Our planet is an incredible perfection, a constant balance that creates life day after day.

But as a result of our many abuses, this balance is being broken. Two solutions are available to us. Ignore or act. For my part, I decided to act in different ways, at my own little level. I am convinced that no action is useless and that the flapping of a butterfly’s wings can have great repercussions.

The Hummingbird Legend

One day, says the legend, there was a huge forest fire. All the animals, terrified, dismayed, watched helplessly the disaster. Only the little hummingbird was active, fetching a few drops of water with its beak to throw them on the fire.
After a moment, the armadillo, annoyed by this derisory agitation, said to him: “Hummingbird! Aren’t you crazy? It’s not with these drops of water that you’re going to put out the fire! ”
And the hummingbird said, “I know that, but I’m doing my part.”

Horse Protection

When I was eighteen years old, I created an association for the protection of abused horses and/or horses destined for the slaughterhouse.

The project was to save these horses and to place them on land requiring maintenance in order to avoid fires in the region. Since 2009, the association has evolved a lot. In the beginning, we were only three people managing the horses, resources, communication, etc. But today, the city of Antibes has taken the association under its wing. The horses clear the commune’s land with the help of the civil servants and the association’s ever-increasing membership.

Reforest'action

Every year, I do my carbon balance on the Reforest’action website. On the site you can calculate your energy expenses, your travel, your lifestyle, etc. and the site will tell you how many trees you need to plant to compensate.

Once my balance sheet is calculated, I plant as many trees as necessary to compensate via their website which is very intuitive and easy.

Vegan

Being vegan is an ecological and humanitarian approach. I put below the link of a very well done website to understand why if you are interested.

I have been vegan for a few years now. I have decided to stop consuming products from animal exploitation, as much in food as in clothes or objects. Of course I still have some leather clothes from the time when I was not paying attention to what I was consuming. But the idea is to use them until they are no longer usable and to replace them progressively with vegan, ethical and eco-responsible products.

Why become a vegan?

Zero waste

For the past few years, I have been doing my best on a daily basis to have a zero waste lifestyle. Recycling is great, but it requires energy and resources, while having zero waste requires nothing. For example, using a water bottle on a daily basis to replace plastic bottles, and using Elia menstrual panties to replace sanitary napkins are things I have been doing over the years.

For those who are interested, I have been very inspired by this family that gives a lot of tips and tricks which I put the link just below.

Le panier du producteur

One of the ways to act on a daily basis is to source directly from our local producers. In this way, we remove the middlemen and our farmers can earn more without making us pay more. Win / win.

The advantage for the producer’s basket is that they have a sustainable policy and practice sustainable agriculture. Their products are succulent. And you can customize your basket according to your tastes and needs.

Note that I live in the big city of Nice and that this company delivers once a week to your home. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

Ocean

The Ocean is the lung of our planet. Moreover it represents two thirds of its surface. Humans by their excesses have breathed out this marvel of nature. A perfection that maintains the balance of life. If we do not become aware of our actions, by reducing our consumption of marine life and reducing our waste, then in 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the oceans. A planetary catastrophe.

This photo series is a tribute to this wonder of nature that we must urgently protect.

Ephemeral

The planet and all its inhabitants suffer because of our abuses. Humans and animals are disappearing every day. Cancers, pandemics, diseases are multiplying. Inequalities, injustices and wars continue.

This series reminds us that everything is ephemeral and that the survival of those around us depends on us.
