Bioconstruction at Green Interiors Day in Sao Paolo

Bioconstruction emerges as a powerful ally of sustainability, offering solutions that harmonize construction practices with the environment. This approach promotes the use of natural materials, significantly reducing the environmental impact of buildings.

In addition, bioconstruction values techniques that improve energy efficiency and resource management, such as water and light, contributing to the creation of healthier spaces integrated with nature. By prioritizing sustainability, bioconstruction represents an essential step towards a greener and more conscious future.

With great enthusiasm, we announce that Caio Martins, renowned specialist of the Instagram Bioconstruction channel, will be present at our event, the Green Interiors Day, in São Paulo. Caio will bring his vast experience in bioconstruction to the interior design project, emphasizing how we can bring nature into our spaces.

His participation is a unique opportunity for those seeking to integrate sustainable practices and bioconstruction techniques into their projects, creating internal environments that are not only beautiful but also ecologically responsible. Take a look at his channel, it has many sensational videos.

For those interested in not only hearing about the future of sustainable interior design, but also in being part of this change, Green Interiors Day is the place to be. With events scheduled in São Paulo and Milan, we are about to reveal a series of incredible news in the coming days.

True Connections, Music, and the True Value of Friendship

Today, I want to share a story that is very special to me. A story that began in 2004 at a Pixies band concert here in Curitiba, the city where I live. This event became the starting point for one of my life’s most enriching experiences: forming a group of friends.

That day, something magical happened. I ended up hosting some people who came from outside for the show, and this initial connection led us to create a group on MSN Messenger (remember it?). Over time, this group evolved into an email list and, eventually, into a WhatsApp group. This year, we are celebrating 20 years of this friendship.

But why am I telling this? Because, over the years, I realized how easy it is to lose connection with the simple things that made us happy. Music has always been a great passion of mine, and exchanging ideas about it, discussing life, and sharing moments with these friends was something I deeply valued.

Today, our group is mostly made up of people who, like me, are getting bald, with gray hair, gaining weight, and dealing with the complexity of a life full of responsibilities. We have bills to pay, families to care for, and a routine much more demanding than before.

In the world of entrepreneurship, there is a phrase that says that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with, suggesting that financial success directly reflects these companies. Although there may be some truth in this, what matters in human existence?

Is it worth losing the friendships and connections we have built or disconnecting from ourselves in pursuit of financial gains?

I firmly believe in maintaining these connections from the past, revisiting memories and sharing laughter, especially when life becomes exhausting.

It is essential to be aware that it is possible, and we should live life peacefully, always seeking to improve but without losing our essence in the process. None of my friends or I became millionaires, but we are happy. Being in this group’s average means that I am connected with what is truly important to me.

Therefore, remember what matters in your pursuit of financial success. Often, we get lost on this path, and the end result may not be what we expected. Beware of entrepreneurship myths that promise wealth but do not reflect reality.

I wish you, reader, a complete and light life. May you walk towards sustainability, valuing what we defend here at UGREEN, but above all, live well. That is what matters.

A great Thursday,

Filipe Boni

Founder, UGREEN
