Today is Sustainability Tuesday* in The Netherlands.I couldn’t have picked a better day for returning to this platform and to you. To pick up where I left off almost five months ago.

A healthy planet means healthy people and vice versa. Since for the past 15 months health has been more of an issue than ever before this seems like the perfect time to start. So let’s stop waisting more time, pick those dandelions*, put them in your salad, smoothie or whatever you like. Start healing through that overwhelming power of nature!
