Urbivore [urb(an) + (herb)ivore]

Owners: Emily and Rebekah Okashimo

Today we are talking to Emily and Rebekah Okashimo from Urbivore, one of the newest additions to the Live Green Perks program.

Why should a consumer choose your products over non-green options?
Connect with your practice on a deeper level with all natural cork yoga alternatives. Not only is cork good for you and our planet, it also makes the perfect yoga companion. Free from harmful chemicals and PVC’s, cork is naturally self-cleaning and inhibits bacteria, mould and fungal growth meaning a clean and fresh smelling mat all the time. Did you know that no trees are harmed either? Cork is harvested from the regenerative bark of cork oak trees and actually absorbs more carbon dioxide and releases more oxygen into the atmosphere when stripped of their bark.

What are the most popular eco-friendly gifts people can buy from your shop?
Our cork yoga mat is by far the most popular item in our shop. The positive feedback from our loyal yogis is all the motivation we need to continue spreading the word and encouraging more yogis to make the switch. One of the best features is the non-slip grip cork provides! Truly connect with Mother Earth and let the strength of the Earth ground you in those hard to hold poses. With cork, the more you sweat, the better your grip!

Why is being green important to you?
We encourage our yogis to “stretch yourself” meaning, open your mind and heart to a more conscious way of living. Just as we practice in yoga, stretching opens up new spaces in our bodies to bring our focus and breath to. It means bringing this new awareness to your everyday life. We are true believers that everything you do makes a difference. No matter how great or small, our choices add up. Collectively, our decisions have the power to change the world! Napolean Hill once said, “If you cannot do great things. Do small things in a great way.” This is the ethos with which we built the Urbivore on.

  5. Permainan Daring (Online Games) adalah jenis permainan komputer yang memanfaatkan jaringan komputer. Jaringan yang biasanya digunakan adalah jaringan internet dan yang sejenisnya serta selalu menggunakan teknologi yang ada saat ini, seperti modem dan koneksi kabel. Biasanya permainan daring disediakan sebagai tambahan layanan dari perusahaan penyedia jasa online, atau dapat diakses langsung melalui sistem yang disediakan dari perusahaan yang menyediakan permainan tersebut. Sebuah game online bisa dimainkan secara bersamaan dengan poker menggunakan computer yang terhubung ke dalam sebuah jaringan tertentu.

    Menurut Andrew Rollings dan Ernest Adams, permainan daring lebih tepat disebut sebagai sebuah teknologi, dibandingkan sebagai sebuah genre permainan; sebuah mekanisme untuk menghubungkan pemain bersama, dibandingkan pola tertentu dalam sebuah permainan (Rolling & Adams, 2006: 770)

    Menurut Webster Dictionary edisi tahun 1913 istilah game didefiniskan sebagai “A contest, physical or mental, according to certain rules, for amusement, recreation, or for winning a stake; as, a game of chance; games of skill; field games, etc.”

    Permainan daring terdiri dari banyak jenis, dari mulai permainan sederhana berbasis teks hingga permainan yang menggunakan grafik kompleks dan membentuk dunia virtual yang ditempati oleh banyak pemain sbobet sekaligus.

    Dalam permainan daring, ada dua unsur utama, yaitu server dan client. Server melakukan administrasi permainan dan menghubungkan client, sedangkan client adalah pengguna permainan yang memakai kemampuan server.

    Permainan daring bisa disebut sebagai bagian dari aktivitas poker online sosial karena pemain bisa saling berinteraksi secara virtual dan seringkali menciptakan komunitas maya.
