In the nature of human beings is to react when it’s already too late. For example, sometimes we do things for which we know that they’re not good for our health, but we continue doing them thinking the problem won’t hit us, it always hits someone else. Until it hits you. And what then? The problem already occurred and it’s already late to fix it. Now you have to make twice more effort just to go back to your normal condition, instead of just respecting your health and reducing the harm.
It is same with our planet. It seems that we will start to act and understand the problem of pollution when it’s too late, when next generations will wear gas masks on the streets on regular basis. It’s already happening in China and it will come soon to all parts over the world, mainly because we all pollute this world like crazy and partly because China is replacing their industry wherever it can. They already bought a lot of land in my country (Serbia) in the industrial area, because our current politicians will sell even their souls to get an extra coin and there are a lot of countries out there with politicians like that. Usually those types of countries don’t have any rules and regulations about recycling, ecology or anything with that topic on governmental level. Beautiful opportunity for some more unsupervised sources of pollution.
Well there is a red light, this is the last opportunity folks, to contribute on daily basis, to help this planet and to save our souls and make a safe place for future generations, for our kids. Only together we can make a trace and a result. But there are few problems we are facing:
For someone old fashioned like me, who likes to use pen and paper I am finding really hard to type on the computer as a way to share information with you. However if we want to be sustainable we need to get used to things that we may not find always practical. The question is what is more sustainable? Writing or typing? For writing we need a pen and paper that is made out of trees and certainly doesn’t sound ecological at all. But if you look closely, computer, phone and other gadgets need up to 1000 years to break. But since almost everyone has a computer nowadays it is nonsense to use both non-ecological things, so use only one – the computer. If you don’t have one, use a pen and paper but in that case you will not read this blog probably ever.
Back to the blog. This blog is mainly about ecology. Fashion and meaningful images are the first things that will stick to your eyes, but that is the point, no? It is hard to grab people’s attention who are not interested in certain topics as in this case ecology is, therefore in the world different ways are used to promote some subject mostly using nudity, powerful images and even using things to be considered as deviant art. In this case the mainstream is fashion, which I have used as my weapon for grabbing attention.
This blog will promote and lead you to ecological brands and actions. This blog will teach you about ecology and the importance of being environmental friendly today.
From this blog you can expect lots of interesting texts and facts about ecology, easy ways of showing that everyone can bring a little contribution to the environment daily, things that you may not know, and hot topics about our planet such as: pollution, endangered species and dangers that new technology causes. Today is nearly impossible to live totally environmental friendly and nobody expects that from us, but we can contribute as much as we can and that is enough to make a balance and reduce the pollution using very common words in practice: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Later in this blog there will be examples, there will be a word about clothing and cosmetic brands, about hot topics about environmental issues as I mentioned before, as well as taking actions and challenges. I will try my best to bring you this subject closer trough different stories, interesting facts and artistic images.
There are dozens of ways to contribute to the environment and this blog will show you how. I am doing researches in order to share you the information at one place and to make you this topic more interesting and closer. In the next chapter “One step forward, two step backwards” I am explaining why ecology as a subject and why it should be the hottest topic above all to speak about.
Word about the author.
Why Become Nika? Well I was playing with words a little bit, word “become” contains two important words in it, which are “be” and “eco”, and NIKA is an abbreviation from my name – Katarina Nikolic. NIKA in this blog is a role model that gives an effort of showing the whole concept of what “eco friendly” is and why is it important. I am from Belgrade, Serbia, a small country that is situated in Southeast Europe, or should I better explain it if I just say ” the birthplace of Novak Djokovic”? 🙂 Here I finished High School for Photography. Afterwards I went to Switzerland were I studied hospitality and event management and gained a Bachelor Degree. Currently I work within my family’s business, which is wine making and wine tourism.

Cooking, traveling, fashion, ecology, photography are topics that I’m interested in and there will be a word about all of them.
Specifically I’m interested in ecology since 2011 when I had my first ecology action and research. My mother is an Sanitary- Ecological Engineer and this whole blog was actually her idea, she is helping me a lot with the material so there will be also some links that will lead you to her own researches, but I will try to make it simple. My best friend Dušan Tepavčević is making all the nice pictures and videos of this blog and half of the ideas that you will see are his work. 🙂 You can contact him through his e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s make this planet a better place together.
