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!

Often, we […]
  • “What’s their phone number again?”
    For more than a decade, I’ve been working with the fine folks at 800 CEO READ (and yes, that’s their phone number, and yes, people have asked me how to reach them.) It’s where I exclusively sell my book What To Do When It’s Your Turn. It’s the place my project ChangeThis is still happily […]
  • Make a habit/break a habit
    If you’re trying to help yourself (or those you serve), the most effective thing you can do is create long-term habits. They become unseen foundations of who we will become. The goal of running a marathon in six weeks is audacious, but it’s not a habit. You might succeed, but with all that pressure, it’s […]
