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!

  • Social media is a symptom, not a tactic
    When your ideas are spreading, when your work is remarkable, when your organization has built a social ratchet that works, one of the side effects will be a significant social media presence. People will talk about you in ways that they like to talk… online. On the other hand, if you spend all your time […]
