In Japan, where I live, hydrangeas are beautiful from mid-May to early July, which corresponds to the rainy season. Our global mom, Yasuko, made lovely hydrangeas from origami paper. Look at the photos!
I have been on this planet since November 1996. I have found that human life is “beary” interesting, full of unexpected things for bears. Also, I have found that human emotions are “beary” sensitive. So, I would like to share my observations with you in the form of a diary. I am “beary” sorry for my English with a “bear” accent, so please bear with me. Ha, ha, ha! I hope you will enjoy my diary.

Look at these baskets! Our global mom, Yasuko, made them by hand. Aren’t they lovely?
Action toward SDGs: Wildlife Protection and Women’s Empowerment
What lovely earrings and broaches! The colors, brown and ivory white, generate a feeling of natural texture. Not only earrings and broaches but necklaces are also available. Can you guess what they are made of?
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
How was the year 2021 for you? Every year, on January 1, our global mom, Yasuko, writes in her agenda what she would like to do in the year ahead. One of her “New Year’s resolutions” was to start selling handicrafts she made as part of EEN activities. Look at the photos!
Washi paper art, traditional Japanese paper
What lovely mushrooms! They are keychains. The other day, our global mom, Yasuko, received them from her Japanese friend, Akemi. How perfect for an autumn gift!
The Month of 3Rs (2)
Look at these colorful items! They are document holders. A close look at them will give you an idea of what they are made of.
The Month of 3Rs (1)
Look at the photo! Our global mom looks ‘beary’ happy, pointing at the brooch on her cardigan. Can you guess why she is so happy with the brooch? Can you guess what it is made of? I will give you a hint.
The language of flowers: cosmos
In Japan, cosmos flowers are ‘beary’ beautiful now. Our global mom, Yasuko, went to a cosmos park today, where a cosmos festival is held from mid-September to the end of October. A large number of tourists visit the park, most of whom enjoy picking cosmos there.
Happy Ethiopian New Year!
Have you ever said, “Happy New Year” in September? Our global mom, Yasuko, has! September 11 is the Ethiopian New Year. In Ethiopia, September 11 is the beginning of a new year.
Let’s reduce food waste!
In August, I introduced a few ways to reduce food loss. Today, I would like to introduce a way to reduce food waste. You may think that “reducing food loss” and “reducing food waste” are the same. Yes, the two may be the same in a broad sense. However, I would like to regard “reducing food waste” as an initiative of using what is generally not used, while “reducing food loss” is a way to prevent food which is supposed to be eaten from being throwing away.
