useNature's Sustainable Living & Holistic Earth Care News

First of all we have to remember that Sustainable Living is nothing new. Only a few generation back, our Grant or Great Grant parents lived sustainable, obviously not by choice, more by natural circumstances.

What is (relatively) new, is the Global Climate change, the Greenhouse effect. However, the science of Climate change was known already much earlier, it was well researched in the 1970, unfortunately, it was not acted upon, and even more frustrating is the fact that action is still slow.

How can you help?

Using less of everything which is produced by using power is a good start. Planting trees of course is important but similar or even more important is soils improvement. Improved soil could trap as much planet-warming carbon as the transport industry produces! - Find News and Articles below:

It may be worthwhile to have a closer look at lifestyles at a time when global warming was not an issue, - go back to the late 19 hundreds, or early 20 century.

Food consisted mostly of local grown produce and of what busy, mainly women, had conserved and stored in their pantries.

Energy consumption was low, as it is without electricity :-) No fridges, washing machines or kitchen gadgets available.

Fashion was mainly linen, cotton or wool. And as I can remember, my jumpers were knitted from used washed wool, and unraveled be re-knitted again is a larger sizes. Wool often was reused for a couple of generation ..... that's sustainability.

Transport was less, because everyone shopped and used local products and produce.

Everything seem to last so much longer, and cheap nasty products, which would brake down after a couple of uses where simply not around.

Many families had small gardens to substitute their diet. The Gardens where Organic Gardens. And the autumn school holidays was the time were school kids helped the farmers to dig up the potato crop, and parents bought a huge bag of potatoes to be stored and to be used over a couple of month or longer..

Yes, we can learn from that, sustainability is possible, can be fun, and is actually much more healthy for you.

Why is it more healthy? Because you eat fresh products and probably less, because your taste buds are not artificially stimulated to crave more empty calories.
