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!

Eyes that belong to humans, to critics, to people hoping for the best. Mostly, to people who expect you to keep your promises. That’s part […]
  • Fear of kohlrabi
    What do you do when you face an alien looking vegetable? It’s all over the farmer’s market, it’s cheap and plentiful and you’ve never had it before. Most people walk right on by. What’s the cost of being wrong, though? The economic cost is tiny. Make a mistake with a kohlrabi and you’re out about […]
