Are you aware above the present situation of earth? how many organizations are formed here and abroad just to protect it from deteriorating? Well for me, I am not that confident to say yes, but I know some problems do really exist that needs much attention and I get inspired by the talks of some famous personalities like Leonardo Dicaprio and Al Gore to inform us and unite to save our planet.
But recently, I am proud to have met the "Greenest Person on the Planet" Mr. Matthias Gelber a.k.a. The GREENMAN at DS Diana Stalder summer kit launch "Fruity SKINsation Set" happen at Gateway Mall, QC.
Upon seeing the GREENMAN for the first time is like seeing an aura of positivism, from the way he smiles, the way he dresses and all of us is in ohhh..when he started to speak about ways to be more concern about saving energy, reducing electricity consumption and taking an eco-action for our planet.
GREENMAN is so committed to inspire more individuals to at least make that baby steps to help protect the planet. Would you believe he only consumes 10USD (470Php) on electricity bill per month? But he enjoys the luxury, freshest and most relaxing way of leaving.
He showed us some sort of a gadgets/things to monitor or combat climate change like, how to limit the time of phone charging, the calculating the energy consumption, buying organic food, clothing and products (like Diana Stalder soap that uses organic materials) and to recycle/upcycle the items instead of throw it on trashbin, like for example the one he showed us, a tetra pack that he made to create a wallet.
Here's the summary profile of GREENMAN:
