Terra Nova: The New World After Oil, Cars, and Suburbs
"The presumption is that there is always more to be had. More oil, more land, more air, more water, more soil, more nature, so that it doesn't matter how much you consume or appropriate, there is always more to be had over the next hill, in the next valley, on the frontier--a frontier that no longer exists." - page 138      Over the past 100 years a confluence of …

Modular Buildings from Portable Building Sales Ltd
Modular buildings are the choice for many businesses and organisations due to their ease and speed of supply and installation as well as low costs. What I think needs to be shouted out about, confirmed or reiterated (if you already know) is the fact these structures, when purchased as used buildings, have high environmental benefits.      A used modular building uses just 3% of …

After visiting he Langdale Hotel & Spa, I was extremely impressed with how this business puts the local and wider environment first. It's latest progression is the implementation of a fleet of electric cars for hire when staying at the hotel or their self catering cottages or should you arrive by electric car, they have an electric car charging point. A biomass boiler was installed a few years …

Garbology: Our Dirty Love Affair With Trash
"Trash is nothing less than the lens of our lives, our priorities, our failings, our secrets and our hubris." This observation from author Edward Humes in the opening pages of "Garbology: Our Dirty Love Affair with Trash" certainly struck a chord with me when I first read it. But after carefully reading and considering "Garbology" in its entirety I must confess that …

Gardening
Plants create oxygen, so gardening is always a good thing. There are strategies and challenges to it too. It isn't just planting the seed into the soil, watering it sometimes, and letting nature take its course. There are certain plants you have to strategically plant according to season, terrain, and to get them however much sunlight they might need.

Dare To Get Your Friends Off Porta Potties!
Australian Hamish Skermer of Natural Event is an environmental chemist who became intrigued about chemical porta potties at festival sites. The design didn't make any sense to him; no wonder the service came at such a high price. The system design itself was flawed, resulting in a skewed cost  for 'clean-up'.    A (bowel) movement is indeed a natural 'event' …

"About our food empire, the doomsayers will continue to grumble while the optimists put their faith in technology or God.  The pessimists at least have the backing of history.  For ten thousand years, human beings have built food empires and whittled them back into parched earth and hunger." p. 171      Prior to the dawn of agriculture human beings were …

Cloth Diapers
Love cloth! saves lots of money, saves on emergency trips to the store for MORE diapers, great on the environment, fun stylish designs that you can't get from disposables. We've had less leaks, less messy explosions and yes, even less diaper rashes.
