As the Holidays come around again, most of us will be pulling out our fancier dresses and suits, our wools and dry-clean “only” clothing. But did you know that most clothes (at least for us girls) that demand we only dry clean them, really don’t need anything more than gentle hand or machine washing? Granted, a good men’s wool suit can be hand washed, but handing it over to someone else to clean and press is so much easier...

It may be the greenest skyscraper ever built, but the most important thing to the people who work in it will be the feeling of sitting on a park bench, enjoying the breeze!

Editor's Note from Michelle Gregg: Here's a both a fitness and an environmental challenge. You don't have to live in Europe to live healthfully. Just one trip per week, dust off your bike and ride to the store or bank, or wherever you need to go that's 2 miles away or less. I'm betting that just maybe you'll enjoy it so much you won't need to dust off your bike anymore! Have fun and be well...

Red tape often prevents good green initiatives from being enacted into law, but smack dab in the middle states of this country there is a group, the Environmental Law and Policy Center, that is actually getting something done!

Toilet habits don't make for the best general conversation, but how we dispose of our  waste is a huge environmental issue and one we need to all consider in relation to our own impact.

We tend to flush and forget - not realising what leaves a sewage wastewater treatment works isn't exactly crystal clear, pure water in most cases...

 

Editor's Note: Ever think about the consequences of using toilet paper? Here're some eco-friendly reasons to consider switching to a bidet. 

 

Think Green


 by Brenton Johnson

Brenton Johnson represents a new breed of young, organic farmers whose philosophy is to live in harmony with the land and bring back a sustainable way of life. Naturally (no pun intended), he advocates buying local food. In between tending his turnips and perusing the potatoes, Brenton penned this wise, authoritative list of ten reasons to buy local food. This isn't just about helping the local farmer, it's about preserving our planet -- and eatin' better, too!...

There are lots of benefits of eating local food, so here comes THE FARMERY, a new idea in food production that brings the farmer and the consumer MUCH closer together!

The technology exists to turn plastic into oil! Meet the oil conversion machine, developed in Japan, that converts 1kg of plastic into 1 liter of oil.

Blue jeans have become a fashion staple all around the world, but the manufacture of denim has also given the world a big environmental hit. Help may be on the way because there’s now a new generation of dyes that eliminate huge amounts of waste and energy…and a surprising amount of water!

Here’s another good use for the plastic bottles that are fouling our planet: floating islands.  They provide a matrix for the papyrus plants that filter water to keep lakes clean and clear…with an immediate application in an endangered lake in Kenya!

 

Think Green


by The Seed Ambassadors Project

We are losing diversity, biologicaland social, at an unprecedented rate. This erosion of diversity directly limits our ecological and social resilience and adaptability within this changing world.

According to the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, crop genetic resources are disappearing at the rate of 1 to 2 percent a year. About 75 percent of agricultural crop diversity is estimated to have been lost since the beginning of the last century.


Editor’s Note: Saving your own seed can not only save you money, but it can also help increase the genetic diversity of our world’s seeds, which will help us to be more resilient in changing times.  Plus it’s fun to do.  This ‘zine written by the Seed Ambassadors Project will help you get started.

There is an entire nation that has completely dropped conventional electricity production and moved to solar…OK, it's not Germany or China or Brazil…it's the tiny, isolated nation north of Samoa called Tokelau, where the population is only 1,411. Isolated as they are, they've got good reason to change: shipping-in diesel fuel to make electricity is expensive, and sunshine is free!

Urban Homestead: Local, Organic and in the City

from Organic Connections Magazine

The Dervaes family in Pasadena, California has converted 1/10 of an acre of urban land from concrete slab to gardens, and grows up to three tons of produce per year right there! Imagine what kind of food abundance and vitality would be available to us and our neighbors if those of us with access to land and water produced food where we live.
