Which sunblock do I choose?

Written by
Summer is coming, despite the situation we all want to go to the sea and enjoy the season. And every year we ask ourselves the questions... Will the sunblock from last year still be good? Which one should a buy? Often I have explained the difference between the chemical filter sunscreens and the physical filter ones. Not all filters work in the same way, some of the ones out there actually absorb sunrays and although thia avoids our skin burning, it still isn't ideal for our health. So here is a video that might guide you through selecting the right product to protect you, your skin, and the environment of course!
We hear a lot about protein but what is it, and how much do we really need? Can we be vegan or vegetarian without incurring in a protein deficiency?
Protein is one of the 3 macro-nutrients, together wiyh carbohydrates and fat. These are the staples to the human diets. They are composed of building blocks called amino-acids, and of these some are considered to be essential: it is, in fact, essential to introduce them through diet as they are the ones we can synthetize in our bodies. In this video I briefly explain the difference amongst the various types of protein, how they are extracted and what the benefits and downsides are. Enjoy!

Hey there, if you opened this blog post you probably are looking for more information about what the organic certification implies. Well, we usually know that organic is "better", that it is more expensive, that sometimes we hear about frauds... but this is just partial information, of course. What is behind a certification? What can really go in an organic product and what can absolutely not go? How are these products checked? In this brief video Sonia explains the details of this. Enjoy!

For the first time, we have been invited to a school (St. Thomas More College in Santa Lucjia) to talk about the environment and to show them some eco-friendly products which can replace the ones we see everyday. We learned that children know more than many adults, and that they see how strong the impact of humans on the planet is. We also learned that 10 year olds drink coffee, and they do it in reusable cups (this was definitely a highlight of the day).

Some of the children told us that they are trying to convince their parents to live more sustainably... and we really think that sometimes kids no better. Here is a small video of the day.
Thanks to St. Thomas More College, the headmaster and the teachers; thanks to Ekoskola Malta for their projects. It was amazing!
