If we think globally, to use the most common of green clichés, we should act locally. In the fight against global warming, though, the practical acts are for the most part symbolic, while the symbolic acts might just save the day. Say you have a certain amount of time and money with which to make change — call it x, since that is what we mathematicians call things. The trick is to increase that x by multiplication, not addition. The trick is to take that 5 percent of people who really care and make them count for far more than 5 percent. And the trick to that is democracy...

If you do a bit of camping and the idea of going for days without a scrub or bathing in cold creeks isn't for you - consider a solar shower bag.

I've been using one of these for years now and as long as you're not in a place that regularly experiences temperatures below around 15C (60F) during the day; this could be a good solution for saving gas ... and water. In addition to financial savings, that means there's environmental benefits too...

 

Editor's Note: The Solar Shower Bag is a handy tool to have around on a camping trip as well as an effective way to conserve water. I recommend getting the Solar Shower Bag if you camp frequently or if you just want to cut down your every day water consumption.

Every April 22nd, when Earth Day rolls around once again, we see the public renew its interest in protecting the environment and finding practical solutions for sustainability. There are benefit concerts, clean-up days, and eco-rallies; all dedicated to spreading the word on ways everyone can help preserve our planet's natural resources. However, one way we can all help is right there in front of us, every day. It's the food we choose to eat, and how we choose to eat it...

Dervaes Gardens sits practically on top of a Pasadena, California, freeway and is only blocks away from the famous Rose Bowl. Outside are all the trappings of twenty-first-century life: automobiles, satellite dishes, supermarkets, car washes, and stores carrying produce brought thousands of miles for the convenience of their customers. But inside, Jules Dervaes and his children have created what they call an Urban Homestead.

 

Editor’s Note: 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.

Welcome to Paris, where an entire building is pulsing with lush green life and beauty.

Patrick Blanc is a groundbreaking botanist and designer that creates magical gardens out of building exteriors in urban areas.

Editor's Note from Michelle Gregg: Just imagine! The future could be cities filled with lush green life and colorful beauty, rather than just concrete jungles that sap our health. Flora growing up city building walls would provide a partial solution to air pollution..

The average produce on the American plate has traveled 1,500 miles, is between 7- 14 days old, and has wasted criminal amounts of fossil fuel from fertilization to harvest. If it's processed and packaged, it's even worse.

We chose this project as a class because we feel that it is important that people know about the food that they are eating, where it comes from, and what goes into it. We soon found that there are other organizations that have the same concerns we do.

 

We also gained a new understanding of how simple actions can have an immense impact on our environment...

There's nothing quite like the scent of a eucalyptus forest after an extended dry spell is broken by rain - everything smells so clean and fresh!

 

Eucalyptus trees, more commonly known as gum trees locally, are the predominant genus of trees in Australia. Australia has over 600 species; comprising nearly 75% of our flora.

“P” is for phosphorus, the stuff of life, and “p” is for “peak phosphorus” by 2030, ecologists say, unless — presto! — pee can be turned into gold through modern-day alchemy.

 

Unremarked and unregulated by the United Nations and other high-level assemblies, the world’s supply of phosphate rock, the dominant source of phosphorus for fertilizer, is being rapidly — and wastefully — drawn down. By most estimates, the best deposits will be gone in 50 to 100 years...
