Every home a homestead

Green (Living) Review

Alas, too many, even in the “green movement”, talk a lot but act very little in accordance with their speeches. They talk about the need to go green, the need to live sustainable, and I am initially talking here about many in the “green movement” today, but then they engage in rampant greensumption rather than making things they need and want from what is to hand for themselves, reusing, upcycling and grow-your-own.

The Transition Movement and the Working Class

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Attracting the working class Transition Towns and the Transition Movement as a whole suffer from an image problem in that the ordinary man and woman in the street seem to see it as something only for the better of middle and upper classes; for those “who can afford it”, and those in predominately rural settings. Going by the prices that are being charged for “green” products the existence of such perception is not surprising, I must say.

Greensumption going mad

Green (Living) Review

Time and again we have bamboo advertised by green vendors as “green”, “environmentally friendly”, etc., I have yet to find a green trader who is not on the same bandwagon as all stores; that of trying to get people to spend, spend, and spend even more, though in this case on “green” products.

We must simplify our lives

A lot of lip service is being paid to this, to simplifying our lives, and against consumerism, in the “greenmovement, only for then to be replaced with a “green” version of it. Green and eco merchandisers vie for consumers all over the web and also on the High Street and on fairs everyone tries to better the other and many “green” craftspeople exploit the consumer wanting to buy recycled products, for instance.

The recycling brainwash

Green (Living) Review

Even a great many, if not, once again, the majority, of the people in the “green movement”, or so at least it would appear, too do not seem to be able to think reuse and upcycle despite the many articles in all kinds of publications speak of it. Reuse comes before recycle by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The majority of people, and especially our governments, appear to know only one of the words that make up the “3 Rs” and that seems to the the word “recycle”.

Why buy what you can make yourself?

Green (Living) Review

However, more often that not, people cannot think in that fashion anymore and that even applies to those in the “green movement”. Reuse and repurposing can give us lots of the things that we would otherwise go out and buy and many, even many in the green movement, do not manage to see and understand that.
