Eco Living Weekly Digest #2


Spread The Love! 9.png

Eco Living Weekly celebrates our collective efforts to live more harmoniously on Mother Earth, and walks hand-in-hand each week with @ecotrain's other curation, Eco Village News. It's a "best of" from posts on the steem blockchain this past week which have used the #ecotrain tag.

What kind of content will get you curated here? Practical, thoughtful, creative and personal posts about literally Making the World a Better Place. From recycling, art, natural health and organic-permaculture to eco-travel, creating change, spirituality, art-poetry-music, natural food preparation and growing-storing-preserving your food and natural medicine. Please attribute quoted material and images which aren't your own, and be thoughtful. You need to use the #ecotrain tag to be considered for an upvote. And please make at least part of your post in the English language - we MANUALLY curate so we need to be able to understand the gist of your post.

We DON'T require you to delegate to @ecotrain, but we'd ask you to please consider it. You can take it back at any time, no questions or stress. Delegation is nothing more than a LOAN of your SP so we can give YOU juicier upvotes. It's a no brainer, really. We also don't REQUIRE you to upvote or support others (all too school-marmy for us!) but, again, we'd ask you to simply give to others what you' like to receive, which is a generous upvote and a thoughtful comment.

MUCH APPRECIATION for the wonderful posts this week.

Please: read, upvote, comment, resteem the posts we've selected for you. And start writing YOUR next @ecotrain post.

Ecotrain Question of the Week

Exploring the underpinnings of eco-living and eco-community is often done through our QOTW. Our last QOTW was a biggie, and the responses in the tie up post are seriously worth a read and some comment love, if you didn't already get there:

Ecotrain QOTW Tie Up Post: Who Do You Trust and How Do You Trust

Please consider contributing to our NEXT QOTW, due out in the next days. No rules other than 2 simple housekeeping requests: (1)please use the #ecotrain tag so we can find your post for curation and (2) please post the link to you response in the comments of the challenge post. Where to find the next QOTW Challenge Post? FOLLOW @ecotrain to have it delivered to your personal feed!! LOL... too easy.

We hope you have enjoyed these eco-living posts - please LAVISH them with upvotes, reblogs, comments and engagement.

If you're able to delegate, or increase your delegation, to @ecotrain, it's a simple and practical way you can help to engage with, and fund, steem eco-villages around the world.

Most importantly, consider writing under the #ecotrain tag this coming week - we love all posts eco-green, earth building, spiritual and natural, but mostly as those things relate to the building and evolution of eco-community.
