In recent years, people are getting more and more conscious about the damage we’re causing to our planet. Becoming eco-friendly is almost a necessity these days. It’s not just about turning off the light when you’re not in the room or recycling your garbage. It’s about changing your lifestyle and habits. But take it one day at a time. Start slow, see what you’re comfortable with and what works best for you. Just don’t hesitate to start, our planet needs you.

The whispering wind through sun-dappled leaves, the thunderous roar of a hidden waterfall, the boundless vista of a mountain peak cradled by clouds—these are the treasures waiting to be unearthed in the emerald embrace of nature. Outdoor adventures, whether a day hike through whispering pines or a week-long expedition under a tapestry of stars offer a chance to escape the confines of everyday life, reconnect with our primal selves, and forge memories that shimmer with raw wonder.

But embarking on any journey, especially into the wild, requires preparation. To truly savour the experience and conquer any challenge, packing the right gear is your passport to pure adventure. Think of it as building your own toolkit for unlocking the full potential of every escape. This guide will equip you with the must-have items, ready to transform your escapades into epic tales whispered around crackling campfires.

The exquisite black tea is an ancient beverage, dating back as far as 5000 years in China. Made from the Camellia Sinensis plant, it’s the most oxidized variety, meaning that the raw leaves are exposed to oxygen for a longer period of time before being roasted, resulting in sturdiness and a longer-lasting flavour.

You’ve got yourself a nice brewing kit you’ve been talking about for years and you are ready to stir a concoction that will blow your friends’ minds. Finally, you can create a delicious drink with your personal signature and enjoy all the hard work you put into it. But that hard work can easily go to waste if you fail to properly clean and sanitize your brewing equipment and ruin your beer. That’s a lot of resources, time, and energy that will go down the drain leaving you thirsty and in tears.
Cleanliness is crucial for all food preparations, and brewing is no different. To avoid spoilage, the whole brewing process must be maintained to a high standard through each stage. In order to ferment alcohol you are creating conditions for the yeast to eat the sugary liquid, but this is tempting for a lot of bacteria and wild yeast that may produce undesirable flavours and an unintended sour profile.

Beer drinking is one of life’s simple pleasures enjoyed by virtually everyone. The reason it’s so popular around the globe has to do with it being a drink that has the power to boost everyone’s mood and the way it brings people together over social gatherings. Plus, there’s literally a beer bottle for everyone’s taste, no matter how peculiar it may be. The fact it leaves room for plenty of experimentation, especially with the recipes and the ingredients, explains why craft beer has especially grown in popularity over the years.

Whether it’s for a new year’s resolution or taking part in the Dry July campaign, it’s now easier than ever to give up alcohol without foregoing some spirits’ flavour. Even more surprising is that the current generation of 18 to 24-year-olds is increasingly choosing not to drink alcohol in favour of a better diet and lifestyle. For this reason, several beverage companies are now making amazing alcohol-free alternatives that may be deficient in alcohol, but not in flavour.

Did you know that the oldest winery in the world is Armenian, dating back to 4100BCE? Later on, the Phoenicians brought wine to the Mediterranean and inspired the Greeks and the Romans to start growing grapes and making wine. As you can see, wine has been around for a long time, and it’s never been as popular as it is now. Italy, France and Spain are still the lead producers of wine globally, followed by the USA, Australia, Argentina and South Africa. Besides being delicious, wine can be very beneficial for our physical and mental state.
