Mother Nature designed chitin to be an exoskeleton for insects that can be either flexible or rigid…and that has inspired  Harvard researchers to invent a similar substance that may become a biodegradable replacement for plastic...

We may aspire to wear the glamorous creations sashaying down the runways of New York, Milan and Paris, but most of us only invest in some shoes, the ‘it’ bag, the underwear or perfume.  Just a spray on our pulse points and we can all wear Armani for the day...


Editor's Note: I love how Justin really exposes these "chemical cocktails" for what they are and offers some great alternatives like making your own scent using essential oils which is something that I do personally.

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...

For three years, "Living Buildings"—buildings that generate their own energy from renewable resources, capture and treat all the water they use, reclaim pre-developed sites, and fulfill a host of other requirements—have set the standard for green building.

 

Editor’s Note: Buildings account for 71% of America's electricity use and 38% of all greenhouse-gas emissions, according to the Department of Energy.  The Living Building Certification program not only requires buildings to bring the imported energy use of a building down to zero, but also includes goals pertaining to social justice, beauty, livability and universal access.  It is far more comprehensive than the better known green building certification program called LEED.

Part of our vitality is the earth's vitality. How we treat ourselves is often a reflection of how we treat the earth. The people who recycle and compost are unsurprisingly people who also take care of themselves through their diet and lifestyle...

Our planet needs to grow food to feed more and more people every year.  Natural resources are in decline.  The livestock industry uses a disproportionate amount of resources for their yield, especially in comparison to the agricultural farming industry. Here are some major environmental considerations when choosing to eat meat - Planeteer-style...

Livestock, Red Meat and the Environment


I've never been much of one for extremist vegan propaganda, but I've been making some changes to my diet based on increasing evidence that the production of meat, or should I say our consumption levels, is a major environmental and humanitarian issue...

“Despite its artistic pretensions, its sophistication, and its many accomplishments, humankind owes its existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Think Green

Recently the phenomenon of global warming is gaining new attention in the mainstream media. Some are skeptical, but the facts are that the 15 hottest years have all been since 1980, the top three in the last five years. Some scientists calculate average world temperatures will increase by 10 degrees by 2100, causing genocidal damage to the planet...

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.
