"We are deeply humbled to be invited to Ted2019 to showcase our products at Future Trend Lab and to introduce Milk v2 and our story to most progressive and influential people on the planet. It’s an honour to represent New Zealand on world stage and to talk about non dairy revolution happening around the globe, especially coming from a dairy country. Thank you everyone who supported and trusted us from start of our journey! We think we are building a brand that is authentic and bigger than us. We have spent last few months making this happen, so more to come about our journey, experiences and stories."

Introducing...

Click HERE for podcast and blog. Do it.

I’m Lucky Roland, human being and everyday greenie.

We're all keen for a greener world, but so far we're taking a long time to change.
I think I've figured out a big reason why.

There's a hidden message in environmentalism which has been lost in translation.
Environmentalism.

Realism.

The world is suffering from a communication breakdown.

It's awesome that Leo goes to the icecaps in helicopters and makes speeches at the UN. But how can the everyman relate?
 
We can't all grow our own food and we can't all afford a Tesla. But implementing change has been made to be a much bigger effort than it needs to be!

Trust me when I say that there are things you can do every single day, that - no matter how small they seem - will add up and will make a difference.

Cycle to work ONE morning, go without meat ONE day a week. 
It all counts.

My site aims to educate (mainly myself) and prove positive agency in the everyday, with environmental news and bants for regular people who want to make greener choices without compromising their quality of life.

Because we're all breathing the same air!

"Having a cuppa doesn't need to and shouldn't need to create trash - just good times! If you know you're going out for coffee & the cafe doesn't provide actual cups, then perhaps that cafe isn't worth it and you should find another one. Otherwise, it's as simple as taking your own cup in. It doesn't have to be a flash one, it could even be a jar or a mug from home! 😎

Pictured is a tumbler by @stanley_brand (most used item, for smoothies/bubble tea - my loves), insulated thermos by @kleankanteen(use this loads for tea on winter mornings & occasionally for coffee when I feel like a fancy adult), and the classic on-the-go coffee mug by @keepcup (this is actually my sisters, I sold mine bc I didn't need it!). Whatever tools work for you, go for it. I love the two I use because I know they won't crack!
Also pictured are things you already have you might be able to use - jars or mugs!
