Consumption that doesn’t cost the earth

Here’s an interesting article about consumption and recycling, related to the event last weekend, the recycling factory in Helsinki.

Consumption that doesn’t cost the earth, published in Sixdegrees late April, brings the issue close to home. They talk about the biodiversity of the Baltic Sea and the difficulty of actually getting some products from Finland. You can’t really talk so much about choosing, so far it’s mainly getting.

Here’s the fun thing. We don’t have too many magazines in English here, Sixdegrees is operating pretty much alone.

They say:

SixDegrees is an independent, tabloid-sized newspaper with an average print run of 50,000 copies. It can be obtained from around 500 distribution points in the Greater Helsinki region, Tampere, Turku, Oulu and Jyväskylä. SixDegrees is aimed at internationally oriented and active people who are interested in the multicultural scene of today, regardless of their nationality or origin.

I say, welcome, both to the magazine and all kinds of people. I’m interested in the multicultural scene of today. Sadly, not too many people are. You may have heard of our parliamentary elections that took place in April. I am genuinely concerned of the values that seem to have gained a lot of support in the elections, especially related to immigration. Close the borders, turn off the lights, don’t focus on the world – only in Finland and Finnish people.
