Every home a homestead

Green (Living) Review

Our future and that of our Planet depends on it. 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.

We need less of more and more of less

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. Aside from saving themselves money reusing items is also much better for the Planet than sending stuff to be recycled.

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.

When it comes to industry and marketing and products people are usually, at least before the recession, attracted to “green”, but not at any price and not to greenwash.

A look forward: The world today is at an ecological crossroad, the destruction of our planet’s resources is impacting our physiology. Unlike the woman’s movement which was a shift in thinking about equality, the green movement must be visceral, it has to be about how people feel. It is an emotional movement. So to sum this up right now, Bernstein says the way to save our plant is the realization that everyone must connect and we must love our planet.
