2: GOOD NEWS ONLY!
Hello fellow Climate Queens, We are back after a two month hiatus. We hibernated alongside the rest of the world during this unprecedented time and have emerged in this new digital age with our very first episode recorded over Zoom! Woop! We have decided to bring you an episode dedicated to only good news. In a time when we are bombarded with often deeply upsetting news, we didn't want to add to that but in fact bring you an antidote with a fun, positive episode where we share some of our favourite good news stories from the last few weeks, over a cup of tea (of course). So please join us for half an hour, take a deep breath and know that we are in this together and we will come through the other side. Big love, Katie & Clo SHOWNOTES: Birdsong: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/coronavirus-birdsong-seems-louder-and-the-ravens-are-more-relaxed-1.4231725 Irish people donating to Navajo and Hopi tribes in Oklahoma: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/05/world/coronavirus-ireland-native-american-tribes.html https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/irish-repaying-debt-of-gratitude-to-native-americans-during-pandemic/ Laid-off Irish Debenhams workers raise funds for Bangladeshi staff: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social-affairs/laid-off-irish-debenhams-workers-raise-funds-for-bangladeshi-staff-1.4250652 Dutch tulip farmer sends buckets of flowers to Kerry nursing homes to cheer up residents: https://www.thesun.ie/news/5348130/coronavirus-ireland-dutch-tulip-donate-kerry-nursing-home/ https://flowerfarmersofireland.ie/directory/ WRAP report on food waste: https://resource.co/article/wrap-reports-lockdown-drop-food-waste Paprika: https://www.paprikaapp.com/ Cocktail builder: https://www.cocktailbuilder.com/ Cycling Brussels: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/11/slow-streets-can-coronavirus-cure-brussels-of-addiction-driving https://meta.eeb.org/2020/05/07/brussels-wakes-up-to-post-lockdown-cycle-lanes/ Cycle lanes Dublin: https://twitter.com/DublinCommuters/status/1259954709730717696 David Attenborough facts: https://www.shortlist.com/news/david-attenborough-facts Ecobricks: https://www.ecobricks.org/ Seal Rescue Ireland: https://www.sealrescueireland.org/ Distilleries making hand sanitizers: https://www.rte.ie/news/coronavirus/2020/0320/1124405-irish-distilleries-step-up-production-of-hand-sanitizer/ https://www.euronews.com/2020/03/20/that-s-the-spirit-distilleries-switch-to-making-hand-sanitiser-to-help-with-covid-19-fight
