Sustainability for the masses
I saw the documentary "Garbage Warrior" and was so enlightened. I would ask all of you to seek out that video. I believe I saw it on Sundance channel. Living green and even more important sustainably does not have to be only for the very rich. If you learn from Michael Reynolds almost anyone can build a home that works with nature to supply all of your basic needs that the planet offers for free and you will not be harming the enviroment in the process. Please have a look at the web site for a great deal of information. I like the idea of growing plants and vegetables inside your home, the thermal mass walls that collect heat and radiate it back to maintain a comfortable climate, and the walls that use bottles as bricks and make a beautful mosaic look. Imagine building your home with garbage that would normally go to a land fill and end up with the home of your dreams. Please do have a look and tell all of your friends. We must fight the status quo. Things are dire and are surely getting worse with our planet's resourses and global warming. We do need to find a better way to live in this world and as far as I am concerned this is it!
