This St Patrick's Day, make yours a pint of nature. We've created this infographic to illustrate just how important natural processes are in making a pint of beer, but the same logic applies to every commodity in our lives: from staples like bread and milk to luxuries like lipstick and laptops, nature is at the root of everything. Let's make it count.
Today sees the launch of the Irish Forum on Natural Capital. People are invited to get involved with the organisation and register as members for the first time.
If you are interested in finding ways to make nature count in economic and political decision-making, read the new pages on our website - What is natural capital, About Us, Terms of Reference, The Steering Committee - and get involved by signing up to the mailing list or registering to become a member.
Please join us on Twitter @natcap_irl using #makenaturecount to help spread the word.
