Newspaper for the World Garden

In 2016, a “Green Newspaper” was published by a company in Japan that wanted readers to be able to grow herbs with it. The special edition shared environmental news and was printed with plant-based ink on 100% biodegradable paper. Seeds were embedded in the paper that would grow into butterfly and pollinator attracting flowers or edible herbs.

Using the Green Newspaper as a tool, the publisher also hosted environmental educational events in schools throughout Japan. Plus, demonstrations were held on how to plant the paper along with lessons on sustainability and recycling. 

The initiative reached 4.6 million people, and generated over $700,000 for the publisher. Its significance carries further in that it reimagines how newspapers can be transformative for both the environment and publishing.


5 Top Tips to Finding Your Next Doctor

1 Keep an Open Mind! Healthcare has come a long way. Today, you have access to practitioners that branch outside of traditional medicine and aim to identify the root causes of conditions while using alternative treatments that may help you get the relief you need. Just because it’s not a pill, doesn’t make it pseudoscience.

2 Build Your Health Care Team. There is no one doctor that can be the be-all-end-all for your health needs. Be sure to have a team of practitioners with different “lenses” and areas of expertise who will treat the root cause and not just the symptom(s).

3   Environment Influences Healing. Health is multi-factorial. Your mental and emotional environment plays a pivotal role in your healing potential. Your doctors and their staff should create an office atmosphere filled with positivity so you can get the most out of your care.

4 Your Story Matters.  Before you begin any treatment, be sure to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your health concerns. Find practitioners who welcome questions and will take the time to listen and treat you with respect.

5 Report of Findings. When it comes to our health, we often make decisions without understanding the risk versus benefits. Knowledge is an important part of the healing process and is essential to make conscious, informed health decisions. Find practitioners who take the time to explain their exam findings and the recommendations for treatment in ways that make sense to you.
