these. just around the corner. instead of importing them. reduce the carbon emissions from the transport to create a more environmentally friendly indian wedding. since the leap on began her career she's noticed a significant shift in what couples now want on that day so i have been doing this for about 6 years now when i started i have. the choices that they're making so. we did inform them. something different so i would say probably. about 30 percent of the line 6 years ago probably less i guess 20 percent wanted something ecofriendly but now i'm surprised myself to sing so many people coming forward saying that they want eco friendly so
4:04 am
i would see probably like about 70 to 75 percent people are kind of conscious and want your friends the right things. traditionally indian families celebrate marriage with pomp and shop a wedding is a display of wealth and tradition. while there is an encouraging green trend among urban indians deepen says it comes with a lot of challenges. people always thing that an eco friendly wedding is equal to being cheap so that has been a challenge trying to get people away from that concept of eco friendly being cheap so there are many different aspects for an eco friendly wedding it can range from a simple thing as having people or see people or even to distilling right for the in ways that you give your guests even as a simple thing like having a chalkboard for your site and then getting a flex printed which is again a one time use in terms of your trousseau as well i would recommend probably using for one we went out with your grandmother sorry your mother's wedding starting

probably some jewelry years ago. said month isn't of the green entrepreneur and battle she founded then necessities 0 with shop. she says that duction is trendy but it isn't a new concept in the country. we used to live in a very easy to waste way in india and i think in a lot of. the scores us narrative that's currently on a sleeve gone needed by a western rhetoric that we're trying to reclaim and i think essentially it's going to be used to do with not that novels so i think it is can be very accessible it can be very ahmad me very average of india and. so it it can be for everyone and it's just about making these small little micro life choices and then it just adds up. runs workshops on the weekends to improve accessibility and get the community talking and thinking about reducing waste. she also publishes the d.i.y.
4:06 am
ideas online with the idea that small changes can drive a big movement. i think sometimes gets a bad rep about being too expensive or inaccessible and that's why we do all of these talks and workshops so honestly we. read into it just made of your own kitchen or your backyard and you can mostly make a lot of these products within like 20 rupees. but the idea is essentially you know to make it just even accessible so that's a very transparent about it recipes it all on our website so if you want to go south toward you go for it because the ultimate aim is just for less waste to be up and up an island for the knowledge i'm optimistic that it's going to really change admissions at least. and staying hooty for the better. eco friendly living is often seen as a privilege of the rich but with entrepreneurs like the leap on championing small

steps and improving people's access to green ideas indian consumers have increasing opportunities on their doorstep. let's take the example of our rising energy needs. as an emerging nation with the world's 2nd largest population the soaring demand for energy in in india most of this demand is met by burning fossil fuels to be who the government is pushing more and more people to buy into the promise of valuable energy like solar power the actual switch is a very tedious process. building contractors so she'll share my hard work has paid off in 2015 he bought a house for his family of 4. it's a big house complete with modern kitchen and air conditioning. the electricity bill is around $10000.00 rupees a month over $100.00 euros. to save money he decided to make the switch to bringing
4:08 am
a bill. he knew he had heard of the government's solar dog and he wanted to contribute also i saw my neighbor mr go had also installed the rooftop solar system and. that's where i got the idea of installing one in my house system with. his 200 square meter roof was ideal so she'll share my installed a rooftop solar system and $28000.00 it meets the household and energy needs. india is home to a growing urban middle class experts say about of the trend continues the country's birth capita energy consumption is said to quadruple. has even wasn't. 6 forcing. all. this energy comes from 70 per cent of new zealand.
4:09 am
and. so if this is to remain in the future it. in mind you know also means that oracle are already coming from. between their curriculum on greenhouse gas emissions. officially the government is backing an energy transition it has set a target of 100 gigawatt installed capacity of solar energy by 2022 operators 40 got what will come from rooftop solar systems that's the equivalent output of 10 large coal fired power plants but so far it's achieved only a fraction of the star get. those years off or you know it was it was and though it was russian companies are losing their. friends who are also as you say. you know 18 years process or a regime that many times to violence is also lower level. as we know
4:10 am
and the banks are really. the company my son specializes in rooftop solar panel systems it also helps clients navigate the people work involved . the indian state subsidies the installation but the country is still a long way from reaching its clean energy targets. the real revolution of solar we only come when people like you and i are businesses are buildings industries corporates hotels everyone starts using solar because everyone has roof i mean. so you have millions of buildings. or you have buildings you have potentially a space for solar setting up a solar power project for social share man the investment was worth it in the last 2 years his 7 kilowatt solar panel system has produced 22000 units of electricity.
4:11 am
well most of the biggest benefit for me was that of the cost of rupees 4 and a half lakh i was able to pay in installments of a piece. sometimes my legacy bill would be worked more than that i didn't have to pay anything extra and made this shift for free. as india's middle class continues to grow the country's energy demand is soaring especially in the cities but if more families which to renewables as a share must have done india's growth want to be of the expense of the environment . a great idea often needs the right time to come to fruition for bicycle enthusiastic london that proved to be the onset of the pandemic look i don't know why this crisis has meant fewer cars and a lot more bikes on the city's streets and this could help make a big policy push towards turning london into a bicycle friendly city. the cyclists and wounded
4:12 am
cost to be quite comforting. when you work with the road one day so if you're a competent cyclist it's not really much of a problem but you have to be going that more or less the speed of the traffic a new presence on the road has to be quite strong or. philip jones and rides his bike everywhere he cycle some 20000 kilometers e.-m. . caltex an excellent son and his family are pleased that more and more london as are discovering the joys of cycling. there will be cycling enthusiast from the time when young children grow their fights to school. that's still something of an audit seen on t.v. but that could soon change. in school. for advancing get people cycling. the next generation i mean the definitely be more confident on the buy a person would think they should just go ahead and close 50 percent. side
4:13 am
streets just. to cause don't need to go on 50 percent so give us access to everybody. close as much as possible. those kinds of demands get done to taxi drivers will riled up the city's cabbies are among scientists the racist critics. who don't get rid of old and. they would and then uses the traffic at the moment is terrible. drug. so whatever michael moore sorcha license is just going to make the traffic even worse study dress because half the people who saw the marmot don't know the high white collars and the small percentage of the you know the highlight charge. so this should be some sort of a test for cyclists and yet london's in a city is currently swarming with bicycles as the current crisis ushered in
4:14 am
a new age of mobility. cyclists now have some powerful supporters behind them there will be a huge amount of planning going into helping people to get to work other than by mass transit in this will be i hope and of the of my writing for a while as a former secretary of transport i will repeat this is what should be a new golden age for cycling but they must act fast when commuters return on mass and won't be enough buses or trains to accommodate them and take it to social distancing missions if even a small percentage of these commute to start using cars instead london will be fixed with 10 children. the temptation to get into medical will be very very strong and understandable so i think we've got a short window of time to reach out to both the politicians and to the public a large to say there is a better writer to this. than is the city none dence financial district is what he
4:15 am
did in the way. during the death access is restricted to process and bikes only. and sidewalks are being widened to give pedestrians more room. and in some residential districts streets are being close to 3 traffic drivers a having to find other grips. all oh all. of this just in these few weeks there's an amazing opportunity to connect. a lot of the unconnected parts. the local councils on board to get the local roads. or so i could do to stop this. universal rule. during the corona crisis london feels a bit more like bike friendly amsterdam. for that staunton and his family hope it will stay that way. they this new golden age for cycling seemed almost too good to
4:16 am
be true. when the cycle struck eastern india in me 2020 the world heritage site of the bones wasn't spared located in the bay of bengal it constitutes the largest mango forest on earth and is at the receiving end of many and badminton calamities local communities are now putting their heads together to find long term sustainable solutions to improve the living conditions in a place they call home. like then unpin had barely come and gone when help arrived in this and advance. volunteers from the quarantined students network set up pumps to expel the salt water that had collected in the fish ponds. the immediate aim of the emergency assistance was to enable locals to return to fish farming and also prevent an outbreak of disease. public. health and hygiene are seriously disrupted
4:17 am
here and need to be restored your stagnant water is dangerous as it can lead to gastro intestinal diseases as well as skin conditions and then there is the often ignored issue of snake bite bite. this fish farmer however no longer sees a future here for herself and her family. what can we do we are dependent on relief now once the lockdown is lifted we will have to leave this in their pants to find there is nothing left here. this in advance is home to 4000000 people it's located in the delta formed by the confluence of the brahmaputra ganges and magna rivers and has a unique ecosystem but the region is frequently hit by storms it took years for the residents to recover from cyclon iowa in 2009 before being devastated again in may of this year. and neil is at least relieved that this time his home was not
4:18 am
destroyed by supercycle and his family also survived on hers. but even the family lives in a part of the same divans where a large section of protective levees has been erected. i wish. we didn't back months have already been built inside julia and lara poorly these areas are traditionally face tremendous damage due to site loans we will surprisingly this time they were saved because william. next to our religion rang a bell. which used to suffer a lot because of the storms but this time the concrete embankments have saved the day. it's been 11 years since the indian government decided to build the cinder vans in 5 mins but just 5 kilometers have been completed to date that section withstood the recent storms and also proved useful for transporting emergency aid so people here now have construction will continue at
4:19 am
a faster pace the to go society for rural development is an ngo that's been helping local residents since the 1970 s. and that's one of the you will not go on in. the lives of the people in the stelter always hanging on a thread. he knows what danger awaits them just. predictable and they will get worse we need to be properly prepared by quins our best bet. but the embankment still can't stop the salt water from getting into the fields from the annual knows he has to adapt by farming his land differently. in some of his fields he's now planted more durable plants. we're going to go now then you got an organization based in delhi helps us with farming certain pulses can grow even in storm prone areas where salt
4:20 am
water frequently enters i don't want to go to the gun i was not going to last 5 years we've been growing a range of lentils and pulses across $200.00 hectares a lot because this can prove to be more sustainable for cycling prone regions like ours and it's also. the future of the people living in the center buns will depend on how quickly they can change which crops they plant and how and how soon the embankments can be completed because the cyclons will return with growing frequency and intensity. when faced with a natural calamity not only humans but animals need support to survive to female orangutans for example breeds and produce only $4.00 to $5.00 offspring stored in their lifetime when the mother of a young adult offspring. to survive with the wife and animal welfare project in
4:21 am
sumatra even during the pandemic is teaching these. towns to do just that. humans have to keep their distance from a ring of things to even at lunch time. because both species are at risk of contracting blue coronavirus. these are rang a tang's are under lockdown and have had to stay in their cages for months. this is yellow school is closed you can train them to fire at introduce them to get to the forest so we bring in the forest for them so it's like. right. 3 months old the 1st. so they can learn that it's their meals are delivered wrapped in leaves so they have to figure out how to
4:22 am
get the food useful practice for when they're later released into the wild. cages or disinfected twice a day. hygiene is of crucial importance. the teams who care for the animals rotate every 3 weeks before they start work staff have their temperature taken another coronavirus precaution they shot the video for this report themselves we talked to the head of the project by video call. or we're going to. argue with. a very long time d.n.a. is 97 percent identical to the out of humans so they're extremely susceptible to all our diseases especially those affecting the responder to retract. you know that's the main reason why we've imposed such a strict quarantine to make sure there's no transmission of a virus replicating in humans to a population in the wild. it would probably have no immunity atoll to such
4:23 am
a virus. the effects could be devastating. dr vela has been reporting on this project for years through the aim is to prepare a rang a tanks for survival in their natural jungle habitat in the bucket to go pollute rainforest in central sumatra. many were rescued as orphans often held captive as pets under terrible conditions they had forgotten or had never learned how to move through the tree tops forage for food and build nests their keepers at the jungle school teach them all these skills usually out in the forest itself. i rang and things enjoyed piggyback rides many of them don't like to walk much this was before the coronavirus pandemic. so no exercises in the forest for now even though they have so much to learn things.
4:24 am
probably the most important item on the curriculum of jungle school is learning about fruit trees what they look like and when they bear fruit. in which season or in which years. in order to survive every rung in town has to develop a 4 dimensional map in their head covering space and time it takes time to learn all that but we've had to suspend the learning process where the trees and when do they bear fruit as the iraqi towns have to stay in their cages. the lock down can only be relaxed once the pandemic has been contained this is not good for the animals their fitness deteriorates and they become bored even the not the best preconditions for release and survival in the wild. those that have already been set free currently lead better lives keepers go on patrol to check on them and provide extra food if need be. here to social distancing applies.
4:25 am
our work. so. yes. they. the school is located in the book who rain forest and releases its graduates there it's a very remote location. so should any arabia tang's here catch the coronavirus they won't pass it on to other ones in the wild. what's more they tend to be naturally self isolating creatures anyway and don't hang out in big groups. the team faces the challenge of protecting their wards from possible infection while also training them for release this video was shot
4:26 am
a couple of years ago there is no guarantee that a self-sustaining population will emerge here again over the past half century 80 percent of the region's rain forests have been cut down to make way for vast plantations. on our last visit paid to pa to stress the importance of saving the forest and teaching the orangutans survival skills. and you. if the orangutans are able to survive here and all the other animals in the rain forest animal community will be to the tigers elephants and old the other species that's why it's so important to protect them. the number of covert 1000 cases among humans in indonesia continues to rise. the project has a back up plan of the lock down goes on for too long it will release its a racket tang's into the wild before they've completed their schooling but will then provide them with longer term support out in the forest it's that way the 10s
4:27 am
will be able to settle and have offspring and their numbers can grow until the threat of extinction here is banished. i hope you had many takeaways from to be assured especially that a modern society needn't really harm but our determination to live an environmentally sustainable life i'll see you again next week until then good bye.
4:28 am
in good shape. recess. this is medium better for both animal farm and does that mean it's healthy without milk and meat is italians and even if you couldn't sniff a healthy life and they make evolution no longer meet our new meat that's a question. good shape. next g.w. . we're all in this together it was the slogan on
4:29 am
social media back when the corona pandemic started. around the world it is since then become clear that the poor are suffering. economic inequality in the congress the to reinforce. the truth of. the 60 minutes on w. . every day counts for us and for our planet. is on its way to bring you more conservation. how do we make signals remember how can we protect habitats what to do with all our waste.
4:30 am
we can make a difference by choosing smaller solutions overstrained said you know what worries me. the ideas implement your series in luxury hotels and on g.w. ma. welcome to in good shape coming up. get a diet without any meat or dairy and be healthy. can't have meat can drink substitute dairy milk. and what's really in our food those answers and more on today's show. hello welcome to in good shape a lot of people around the world don't eat meat take india for example around 38
4:31 am
percent of the population lives meat free but on the other hand there are a lot of people who are. meat lovers vegetarians and even vegans live a healthy life and they may even live longer so meat or no meat that's a question but 1st however we look into the question which food competence our body actually needs. no matter what we're doing our bodies need energy in this case supply not out of a socket but through what we eat. carbohydrates are our primary source of energy they're found in various forms and almost all foods. like glucose and sweets. are for some fruit. but also as lactose and milk and starch from grains so carbohydrate containing foods don't always taste sweet. the
4:32 am
body turns excess glucose from carbohydrates into fat that is stored in adipose tissue. indigestible carbohydrates also known as dietary fiber are found mainly in fruits lagoons and vegetables. they make us feel fuller and stimulate the gut. fats carbohydrates provide energy to the body also needs to make neurotransmitters and hormones and to form cell membranes. a lot of products containing animal fat like meat or butter contain saturated fatty acids. but too much can raise blood cholesterol levels and lead to cardiovascular disease good sources of unsaturated fatty acids are fish vegetable oils nuts and seeds.
4:33 am
protein is the 3rd major macronutrient group. protein is made up of amino acids which are the building blocks of ourselves without protein from food our bodies are unable to produce new cells or regenerate old ones. are immune system also relies on protein stores being replenished to antibodies. animal products are frequently high in protein but there are also many plant based sources such as beans and lentils as well as scenes nuts and mushrooms. plenty of foods contain micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals these are what give us solid bones good digestion or assist muscle recovery. healthy nutrition requires a very diet. and also drinking enough water. grains
4:34 am
rice potatoes and legumes are a sound base for your diet include 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day plus a few protein rich products such as milk and eggs or someone. with a balanced diet it's ok to indulge in sweet or fatty treats occasionally. turkey has a reputation of being a meat loving country but turkish because enos war it's full of grains and legends and it's very very healthy this durham for instance has no need to it it's megan and even turkey there's a growing interest in a need free lifestyle. a butcher's shop in istanbul. on display traditional turkish speciality searches subjects sausages.
4:35 am
but none of these products come from animals. this is one of turkey's 1st began but she shops. it sounds plant based meat alternatives to the traditional dishes that many people assume could only be made from animal meat. cohen or turkey or you just so it's certain that veganism has a future in turkey. about we are. used to we want to take traditional home cooking into the future. but i think the popularizing flexitarian ism is a good way to achieve that. it can help people to move towards veganism without having to eliminate meat completely. but flexitarian as a means people go without animal products once in a while. being some of their waste them with plant based alternatives once
4:36 am
a week maybe even for a whole month. if we tell people that they've got to give up animal products completely will probably make quite a bit of resistance. members. think in islam as a principle covers all the. lifestyle aspects some stain from using any animal products like vegetarians regan's don't consume eggs or dairy products. legalism is now a worldwide movement but many vegans believe that prejudice prevents widespread acceptance in society. going very good i've tried it before but i realized it wasn't during man. had to deal with quite a few health issues in the past which is why i don't want to live again i dearly
4:37 am
love milk and. sugar. a common fear is that vegan diets lead to nutrient deficiencies and health problems. but is there any truth in that. having a poor diet is the cause of many chronic diseases. vegetarians are less likely to develop diabetes and cardiovascular diseases for example. there are studies that show this. some studies even show that people who eat a vegan diet actually live longer on average. the environmental impact of livestock farming is another reason to avoid animal products research shows that on average it takes 15000 liters of water to produce
4:38 am
just one kilogram of beef class and 80 percent of the soybeans and whole for the corn produced worldwide is used to feed animals these massive amounts of crops feed millions of people. so why do you continue to use animal products. when it comes to be. people's immediate reaction is that they can't give up their traditional diet. they're convinced that meat is essential. they ask but where will we get protein if we don't eat eggs. they say that essential amino acids can be found in plants but that isn't true. these are just prejudices and misconceptions which is. according to a report by the world health organization even evidence that processed meat can be carcinogenic. similar studies suggest
4:39 am
a possible link between the consumption of animal products and various chronic diseases. but despite all this evidence many people find it difficult to modify their diet. of. eating animal products can lead to heart disease diabetes high blood pressure disorders and problems in the digestive tract . people needn't worry that they will get sick if they stop eating animal products on the contrary. they should keep their vitamin b 12 levels in mind it's of the shouldn't get too low. but taking food supplements can prevent that. solomon. becoming a virus pandemic has also sparked a debate over the consumption of some animal products the latest report from the united nations environment program suggests that protecting wildlife habitats would
4:40 am
reduce the risk of future pandemics it remains to be seen whether these findings will motivate more people to adopt a vegan lifestyle. meat eaters argue that a plant based diet is very boring di that it doesn't taste very good that it's missing a lot of trillions. this is true this is what our today's talks about so let's follow a health report i mean africa and. britain now is a nutritionist and a chef and he also again he publishes videos and books on healthy eating thinking to inspire more people to opt for a life without animal products. neko do your beacon so you don't use any animal products the tool. what made you decide to do you thought. you know i mean besides i've been a vegan since 2013 that i'm from austria where meat and dairy are
4:41 am
a big part of the culture i used to love it especially cheese i thought life without cheese wouldn't be worth living with but the more i learned about the ethical aspects of our food the more difficult it was for me to justify it for that brief moment of pleasure and ending the life of an animal or supporting their exploitation there's also the environmental aspect plus a plant based diet can be good for you but for me it was an ethical decision. i made. that focusing on the potential health benefits is if you can diet really better for you. know the dog and that's a good question with no easy yes or no answer when we look at the data vegetarian and vegan diets are a little better health on average than the traditional western mix diet especially when it comes to cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders like diabetes. but it's and i just doing without and eat and dairy that makes the big difference.
4:42 am
it's a plant based diet and the focus on nutritional. vegetarians and vegans tend to be more health conscious in general because we got to many exercise a bit more smoke and drink a bit less. and your health conscious you'll likely want to reduce your meat into. i mean is that stuff if i decided to become a vegetarian or vegan for health reasons what would i need to watch out for to make sure it really is healthy. because. if you remove animal products from your diet then you need to substitute the nutrients that those foods give you with good vegetarian or vegan equivalents so if it's a vegan diet where you're no longer consuming cow's milk or chilies will you get your calcium from if you're no longer eating fish where do you get iodine and omega 3 if you don't eat red meat what's your source of iron and so on but the good thing is animal products don't have
4:43 am
a monopoly on these nutrients if we look at the big 5 plant based food groups grains pulses fruit vegetables nuts and seeds we find we can cover the critical nutrients very well let's come in to my times we can be a bit more specific mastiff which nutrients are especially critical that we definitely need in our diet the most critical and probably the best known is vitamin b 12 it's often consumed automatically by eating animal products but actually no nutrient no vitamin or mineral there's a regionally contained in the animal vitamin b 12 for example is produced by bacteria and it actually makes no difference to our bodies whether these bacteria occur in the cows and produce vitamin b 12 for the cow which would then eat cows meat more chickens and pigs consume vitamin b 12 in their food and we then eat the meat or whether we get the vitamin from fermentation and sauerkraut for example or other fermented foods or when we take food supplements the sizes so it's obviously make sense to 1st delve into this more
4:44 am
deeply you know where you can get the nutrients that your body needs what about children and adolescents lots of people are critical about whether a vegetarian diet is healthy for the. big i don't know balanced diet isn't rocket science but yes you know a few basics and especially the. children in adolescence or also women who are pregnant or breastfeeding you can do a lot right and a lot wrong but parents should always take a closer look at nutrition because they're responsible for the health of another person that applies anyway but as publications from leading expert show and it's backed up by more and more data it's possible to have a healthy vegan diet during every phase of life including in infancy and childhood while pregnant or breastfeeding but yes only if you know what you're doing in oz that's really is and you can always get professional advice from a doctor when you trish an ex-pat. bust out of them what's your tips for those who
4:45 am
want yet fully convinced what's a good introduction to a vegetarian or vegan diet is the madness of tough fight when you start reducing animal products in your diet you actually gain more than you lose you're not removing anything completely but you're gaining a rich for idea plant based foods so you struggling a bit where you can partly via nice your favorite dishes with plant based alternatives there are great recipes out there blogs online look at what's available in restaurants and supermarkets you'll soon find you gain a lot more than you lose as i'm not perfect yet so you would encourage people to read up and start experimenting with a vegetarian or vegan diet thanks for the insights my pleasure thanks for having me thank you for that alone. would you like to learn more about wheat free diet. then just visit us online i d w.
