Super snowy Harajuku at 2am on Valentine’s Day night 2014. These are long exposure photos (using a tripod), so you can’t really see the snow falling, but it was snowing pretty hard! These shots are of Takeshita Dori, Harajuku Dori, Cat Street, Meiji Dori & Omotesando Dori.
The pixiv.net office in Tokyo. The main workspace is centered around a 250-meter-long desk that has “bridges” that people can walk under to get around. Also of interest is an interactive “art wall” where people can take off magnetic placards, draw pictures on them, and then put them back on the wall for everyone to see.
Did you know that most of us are fueling one of the world’s biggest ecological disasters and acts of primate genocide in history?
Borneo and Sumatra are two of the most bio-diverse regions of the world, yet they have the longest list of endangered species. This list includes the magnificent orangutan. These two South-East Asian islands are extremely rich in life, containing around 20,000 flowering plant species, 3,000 tree species, 300,000 animal species and thousands more being discovered each year. Despite this amazing biodiversity and delicate web of species, an area the size of 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared each hour in Indonesia and Malaysia to make way for the production of one vegetable oil. That’s 6 football fields destroyed each minute. This vegetable oil is called palm oil, and is found in hundreds of the everyday products, from baked goods and confectionery, to cosmetics and cleaning agents… many of which you buy in your weekly shopping.
We’ve been trying to buy palm oil free products, unfortunately, many companies may circumvent this by stating that the product has “vegetable oil”. Best option: buying product from biological and organic shops. Read before buying! (And avoid instant noodles, they reek of palm oil)
