Blue Economy

Post by Misor on Fri Feb 03, 2012 1:06 pm

Nowadays when global warming is affecting our countries in the way of worse rain periods or really dry summers.

I came up with a series of videos in which they talk about the blue economy. So let me introduce the blue economy concept

It looks really interesting and necessary. The question is, are governments eager to get into this trendy vision of the future? Companies and governments only care about business, profit and conveniences. And we citizens depend on them, sadly. For example, ACTA would kill this blue vision instantly.

While this blue economy is reasonable, it depends more on how the industry and the elite cooperates (which I truly doubt) and the wisdom of us as citizens and consumers; we must stop being selfish, too.

I agree with you, maybe governments and entrepreneurs doesn't care about this new way of economy.

But, the thinsg is with us the new generation who can change the way we think and make money. As you can see the blue economy stands for creating employments and of course profits. So believe me, if, as I want, I start my enterprise it will work as a blue economy.

How can a freelance worker set up their own business based on the Blue Economy, for instance, in your case? Very Happy

It wouldn't work only as a business but as a way to contribute from our homes.

For instance. In my case I would starting a VermiCompost, which is a special kind of compost in which you use worms to create compost. So worms will eat all your garbage, specially organic wastes, and their litter is earth which you can use, for instance to start a farm in home. This is the idea I want to start in Vanessa's house. Before starting it in my parent's flat.

Other important thing, is that after worms reproduce, you can make food for your pet rich in protein from the worms.

In that way you make useful everything. Your wastes, the worm castings and the worms themselves. You save money (in terms of food you grow, the food of your pet that you make, and don't contaminate the environment)

I want to start this holidays with the Vermicompost using red wigglers. After that planting strawberries, onions or tomatoes Very Happy and after all making Salomé, Luna (vanessa's cat), Tony and Princesa (vanessa's Dog) food Very Happy

And as a way of business in long term. I would make the same but in a bigger scale.

And the business will sell organic compost, pet food, organic vegetables and fruits and a school for dogs. Also to get some more incomings and benefits I would like to sell pure breed dogs and cats. Oh my god how ambitious.

Finally, with the incomes I would set up a shelter for street dogs.

And of course producing no wastes which is the goal.

Jose, do you remember Gerardo, in the Specialized II group? He did some VermiCompost, I guess he still does. And it's a practical and very easy procedure to do at home. I guess we'd need to get some more information about the right practice of the VermiCompost, but in the end it's not rocket science, it's just a matter of making it purposeful and practical.

It seems like good business! Yes! Is it pricey to set up a business such as the one you've mentioned?

Well, I haven't calculated the cost, but I think the most expensive thing would be the space to do it, I mean, the land where to locate the project.

And, of course it would demand too much time.
