In this day and age it is very easy to do what is convenient instead of new and innovative solutions. But shouldn’t we be conscious, interested and open to new ideas?
In our travels as Man throughout the ages, we have gone from famine and hardships to abundance. But should we be indulging just because things are made available?
We, as mankind, have shifted from natural remedies to chemical concoctions, man-made drugs and synthetics. But did we stop to find out what was best?
Conquering the universe and molding it to our whim is what mankind does in order to survive better. Our whim is quite advanced now and our pocketbooks bigger, but are we looking at the consequences of our acts?
I have found that the amount of people that are looking at survival for mankind, the planet, plants, animals and even bugs has been increasing!
Here’s some new finds:
- Mycologist Paul Stamets lists 6 ways the mycelium fungus can help save the universe: cleaning polluted soil, making insecticides, treating smallpox and even flu viruses. (Mycology is the branch of biology concerned with the study of fungi.)
- Avoiding meat and dairy is the ‘single biggest way’ to reduce your impact on Earth. Biggest analysis to date reveals huge footprint of livestock – it provides just 18% of calories but takes up 83% of farmland.
- Via Verde the greatest urban greening project under construction on the planet.
- A new invention called Zap Cloths is becoming very popular because you only use water to clean most everything!
- EcoSolutions has innovative designs and living systems.
- Go Beyond Organic has natural solutions for life.
- Take care of the bug-pests with Beneficial Insects instead of chemicals. Not all insects are pests. In fact, there are a great many good bugs for your garden. Many growers recognize the help provided by beneficial insects as well as the injury done by harmful ones.
- The animals and plants we cannot live without.
- Natural and eco-friendly alternatives to plastic products.
- Grow Permaculture‘s focus is helping people create abundant edible landscapes, self-sufficienct urban or rural homesteads, resilient and high yield small farms, and successful intentional communities.
Have fun exploring!
