• In a nutshell…

    The idea for The Borneo Post SEEDS began about a year ago, first as an idea as a weekly print-publication, and then more recently as a website.

    Our mission is to give young adults a voice and a face in the news, and the chance to tell us what's relevant to them whether it's through this site's forums, email, our Facebook and twitter pages.

A talk by Tzu Chi foundation at the Youth Green X-Change seminar kickstarted last year served as an eye-opener. Knowing now that very little lifestyle adjustments can bring about huge beneficial changes, the talk is very much worth sharing. The essence of the talk was about integrating or taking pledges on three green acts: to practice mindful eating, to live environmentally-friendly lifestyles and to choose frugal living. ACT 1 : MINDFUL EATING √ Less Meat, More Veggies: Try vegetarianism
