Go Green, Go Paperless, Go Jobless

Green (Living) Review

Print and paper have a great environmental story to tell by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Time and again we see the messages that ask – nay, demand even – that we go paperless and it is then referred to as going green. Should these people on the front lines of sustainable forest management be forced to make the difficult financial choice to sell long-held family land when a drop in paper demand results from green marketing claims that don''t hold water?

Going green doesn’t start with doing green acts

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Going green does not start with doing green, environmentally friendly, acts – it starts with a shift in consciousness. Buying green products as a replacement for what one already has is also but consumption, though of green products, and hence the term greensumption is being used for this. And too many, believing that they have to get all those green products, think that, because they do not have the money, that they cannot go green.

Going lean is the new green

Green (Living) Review

The next movement in green marketing, therefore, is and must be about focusing on waste reduction. It just is not enough to buy so-called green products – we have to promote responsible consumption and we have to get away also from what I like to refer to as greensumption; buying green goods because “we must have them to be green”. That is not “green” and that does not prevent waste.

Some ways in which frugal living is also green living
