Ecology and Sustainability

 

I am a climate activist. I firmly believe that the future of our Planet depends on us and that anyone should give his contribution to preserve the nature 🍃

Languages are my superpower and I decided to use my translation and communication skills to help saving the Earth 🌎 I translate some interesting articles about the environment, websites for sustainable brands, NGOs, etc.

I only work with clients who share these values: my job is part of my life and it affects the environment as anything else. Everything is interconnected and it’s important to do our best to protect the Nature!

Sustainability should be our major concern: we only have one Planet and we need to protect it! With my translation services I want to help sustainable and ethical fashion brands, apps against food waste, NGOs that fight climate change and deforestation, organizations defending animal rights, and in general companies that have sustainability as one of their core values.

I am passionate about gardening, permaculture, straw-bale building, forest gardens, aquaponics, natural building techniques, ecovillages, and every form of sustainable, renewable energy. I support many environmental organizations and sustainable brands.

One of my clients is Bowlpros, an e-commerce selling sustainable, ethical products such as coconut bowls, bamboo cups, vegan food, and more.

Here you can see an extract of an article I translated about ecology:

English source text 
Italian translation
In 2011, the UK produced nearly 11m tonnes of packaging waste. Yet companies still sell packaged, pre-peeled bananas.

Food waste campaigner Tristram Stuart, says supermarkets have cottoned onto the ‘ethical consumer’. “The food and packaging industry has undergone a strategic rebranding campaign [and now] argues that you can reduce food waste by how it’s packaged. So you get pots of cubed-up mango instead of an actual mango. (…) It’s a distraction from the real issue which is turning nature into cash to satisfy unnecessary consumer desires.”
Nel 2011 gli imballaggi del solo Regno Unito hanno prodotto circa 11 milioni di tonnellate di rifiuti. Eppure le aziende continuano a vendere banane già sbucciate e impacchettate. 

L’attivista Tristram Stuart afferma che i supermercati si sono accorti dei cosiddetti consumatori etici. “L’industria del cibo e degli imballaggi ha subito una campagna strategica di rinnovo e ora sostiene che sia possibile ridurre i rifiuti in base a come il cibo viene confezionato. Così ecco spuntare vasetti di mango a cubetti invece di un mango vero e proprio. (…) È solo una distrazione dal problema reale: ossia che si sta trasformando la natura in denaro per soddisfare i desideri superflui dei consumatori”. 

Following is a sample of a product description I translated for a Sustainable Fashion brand that produces reusable period underwear:
