Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Till now, i've been mostly hosting, much much much more hosting than surfing,now i must admit that i am less hosting than before..because i am also very happy to see that there are much much more hosts in Banjaluka now than 7 years ago (when i started CS) and it gives the chance for travelers to meet local people :)
i used CS only a few times as a guest, but i´ve been hosting soooooooooo many times ! and i really agree with that blog http://www.francistapon.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=61&p=548#p548 .
I'm also a member of www.hospitalityclub.org

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
oh well i think i'll once again say that it depends on a lot of things but living is quite amazing, isnt'it?
Teach, Learn, Share
i'm trying not to waste too much, so please try to do the same when you are my guest (reduce your trash, dont use plastic bags, or re-use them, dont waste water, electricity, etc..)
Maybe i m in accordance with that
(here is a copy paste of that blog)
"For us being ecotarians means that whenever we make a decision about our consumption (be that of food or any other product) we try to consider a whole myriad of ethical issues that relate to the impact of our choice on the earth. These issues include:
Whether or not the product has been produced locally or whether it was transported half-way across the world to us.
Whether or not the product was created using slave labour (or sweatshop labour) or whether it was ethically or fairly traded.
How much packaging is used and whether the packaging is recycled and recyclable.
What kind of chemicals were used in the creation of the product or whether it is organic.
Whether the product is cruelty-free (in that it contains now animal products and was not tested on animals).
Whether or not we actually need the product or whether we are simply consuming for the sake of it.
How much energy and water was required to create the product.
Whether the product is brought to us by a corporation that is highly unethical in its business practices (such as Nestle, Coke or Monsanto).
And, well, you get the picture...
This may seem like an incredible pain to some people. It may seem like it would involve a life of constantly reading labels and standing, frozen with indecision, in supermarkets aisles. However, it is really not like that. Like any lifestyle decision it is something that becomes a natural part of your day to day routine. Good brands and products become familiar and what you buy becomes second nature.(...)"
