Sustainability Solutions to Share with Linchpins # 68

I’m sharing “million dollar” creative sustainability ideas.

You can have them for free.

Be a Linchpin.  Develop something: ship, ship, ship!

Veggie:

No matter how much I think about sustainable living, it’s hard to get past the plant based diet.

Bill Maher (the comedian) is quoted as saying that the vegetarian in a Hummer trumps the Prius Hybrid driving customer in the McDonald’s drive through for minimizing their carbon footprint, and he’s right!

Where’s the Linchpin opportunity?

Meat as an industrial food source consumes an enormous amount of energy that gets wasted and subsidized nearly every step of the process (planting, fertilizing, and harvesting industrial feeds…then the slaughter, inspection, and transportation debacle…followed by the necessary cooking process) while consuming more energy as the nutrients dwindle away.  Even without the switch to a plant-based diet, improvements can be made by following the small-farm, grass-fed, grass-finished model with biodynamic principles in place.  Who will lead this revolution?

Simple.  Beautiful.  Elegant.  Farming.  Sustainable!

    Superman could bend steel with his bare hands. Along the way, we’ve been sold on the idea that difficult tasks ought to be left to heroes, often from somewhere far away or from long ago. That it’s up to them, whoever ‘them’ is. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. quoted Theodore Parker: “The arc of […]
  • Everyone is doing their best
    What if that’s not actually true? Perhaps it’s more useful to consider that in every moment, on every project, no one is actually doing their best. Because there’s always a need to hold a little bit in reserve. Because there are always competing priorities. Because everyone has a noise in their head. Because there’s fear, […]
