NEWS: Bet the house on green
City Hippy is not about scaring people but just to give you a simple explanation of one of the main reasons why we are spending valuable time trying to change the world please read this article from today's Guardian newspaper from the UK.
Two-thirds of world's resources 'used up'
Now we are not saying we are doomed. We do not believe we are. But like any person who has ever driven a car we know that if you see a bend in the road ahead you either make the turn or you crash.
We want to make the turn. We are dedicated to helping you join us.
Einstein famously said "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
Sure we can trust our current politicians and business leaders...their is no evidence for global warming they say. Then they say it does exist but is nothing to do with human activity.
To trust them is to gamble with the only home we have. There is no choice. Look at your kids. Think about that.
We decide what to buy and use up so if we want to live more responsibly then we have that choice.
City Hippy is here to help you make that choice by providing you with an easy way to get greener and more ethical.
We are not saying 'Go live in a cave and wear rags.' We are saying 'Think about your habits of consumption and seek alternatives'.
Easy things you can do:
- Save water. Put a brick in your toilet cistern and cut your household water usage by upto 33%!!!
- If you can throw it away you can probably recycle it.
- Always try and buy a green / organic / fair trade / ethical / local alternative.
- Put pressure on politicians to help us.
- Buy a green car: who needs to do 200km/h on the freeway?
- Spread the word.
For plenty of ideas see our list of links.
Let's start making that turn ... starting now.
