Our planet’s very fiber and fabric of life is being destroyed so fast today scientists from around the world have issued two dire warnings to humanity, our health and all life on Earth is at stake. Either we are not listening or it's our selfish ignorance of the needs of our living planet and others.
There's just one solution we can count on today —making our planet's health our first and foremost responsibly, by living just and sustainable, as one people and planet. This is our challenge today, as tomorrow will be too late to assure our children's future health and justice is better, not worse than today!

Our lifestyle suggestions are pretty much down and dirty. There's no white or green washing here, just a few basic ideas.
° First and foremost reduce (excessive) consumption, including travel, red meats and especially all things made cheaply (unhealthy). It's important to note this suggestion is not about abstention or becoming a minimalist necessarily, although everyone needs gain an appreciation of moderation. Time
° Make every effort to buy locally made products, even if it costs more. This does not mean settling for less quality when a local product fails to deliver.
Think of each as its own TIME zone, that is the time you spend with or doing each. What's important is to pay particular attention when we have an urge to buy something NEW or travel, think how you might reduce the urge or need (less is often more efficent). Many ecomomists will say this is stupid even to think its possible, our world and its ecomomy will surely faulter and fail without continued progress and growth. What's wrong with with this thinking is it does little to recognize the finite, life sustaining capacity of our planet and it fails to recognize the circular (sustaining foundation) of our natural world. This reality and the reality regarding our growing global population and consumerism could together upset the delicate lide-sustaining balance of a living planet (ours).
Living in a finite world where many continue consuming more than our planet's is capacble is stupid and fool hearty.
