You are what you eat, what are you?
I eat a lot of fruit, berries, vegetables and oatmeal.
What would never end up on your plate?
Do you have green fingers?
I hope so. I had two tomato plants last summer. Got over 90 tomatoes and it was my first two tomato plants ever. But I killed my bonsai tree because I watered it too much.
What do you do to make your day green?
Traveling by public transport or train. Ride my bike as much as I can. I always use a tote bag so I don’t have to buy plastic bags at the store. Recycle as much as I can and I use multipurpose coffeecup and reusable drinking bottle.
Also, I pick up trash from the streets and the nature and share my experiences on @PlastNorge social media account under the hashtag #PlastNorge.
Do you have any green goals?
Yes, eat more plant-based foods.
